I am taking bookings for 2020, throughout 2021 and beyond. I can be booked more than a year in advance, so please get in touch to see if I'm available at the right time. I'd be happy to find out what you have planned, and how I could help you.
I have worked all across the UK, and enjoy the opportunity to do so. So I would be delighted to work with you wherever you may be!
For event photography, my prices start from £200. For wedding photography packages, my prices start from £300. Why not click here to see some examples of prices in a bit more detail? I am happy to work with you to make sure I provide a service that is affordable for you.
Been confused about copyright? Perplexed about permissions? Don't be! It's really quite simple.
Private clients (for example a wedding, or a privately-organised event): You are free to share, print and enjoy your images however you wish, forever! I just ask you not to sell images, enter them into competitions, or use them for advertising (not that I'd expect you'd do that anyway). To use the technical term, it's called an ongoing, non-exclusive licence of personal use. I retain copyright for all images, which is standard practice. Without that, I couldn't showcase my own work!
Corporate and business clients: I'll ask you how you're going to use the images before we start, to make sure I give you the correct fixed-term licence (although, this only really applies for images that would be used for advertising and promotion). For coverage of - for example - a corporate party, I would probably grant the same licence as described for private clients. Copyright for all images remains with me.
I understand the pressures of press deadlines and social media. If you need me to prioritise a few of the most important images, then just let me know. I can usually provide you with a few time-critical images at the end of day, or within 24 hours.
Other than that, I believe in quality over speed. Generally speaking, I can provide you with a complete selection of edited images within 1-2 weeks. The exception is wedding photography, which could take between 2-6 weeks. Please bear in mind that timings will always depend upon my schedule and availability.
If you have ordered a wedding album, then this would extend the timings by a further 4 weeks at least - although you're welcome to have your images first, and then order an album at a later date!
My camera backs up images to a second memory card as I shoot. I have a backup camera, backup lenses, backup flash units, backup batteries and basically everything I need to keep shooting in the unlikely event of an equipment malfunction.
Your photographs are backed up on computer, external hard-drive and cloud drive - not to mention your personal, password-protected online gallery. I generally keep my images backed up for as long as reasonably possible - so even if you lose your USB stick, the chances are I'll be able to replace it for you.
I am fully insured, and so is my equipment.
