Pricing - (portraits & spotlight sessions)

▼~ Hello ~▼
Return to - Home Page......

Good portrait photography involves communication and trust between subject and photographer.
As an established actor for many a year I have experienced & understand the nerves that for odd reasons afflict us in front of the camera - I well know the need to relax and am able to help with a few tricks of the trade in achieving this. I offer a personalised, supportive service which aims to bring out the best in both of us.

Before starting the session we will discuss what you feel you want out of the shoot and I will work to fulfil you requirements …… I will encourage, support and advise and ……Immediately after,( and sometimes during - subject to time), the shoot we will examine on computer the photo’s taken…… whilst I cannot give a carte blanche guarantee of your satisfaction I will most certainly, if I am not satisfied with my overall technical input, offer to re-shoot or refund your money.

See Portrait Tips for some tips on how you can prepare for a photo shoot
