Frequently asked questions

How do I book a wedding or portrait photo shoot ?


Please either call me on 07717383002 or email me at photodel1@yahoo.com. You can also use the contact form on the contact page.




How much notice do you need ?


I usually have some availability for last minute bookings and will do my best to fit you in. However if time is on your side please try to give me at least 3 weeks notice.




What do I need to send to you ahead of the photo shoot ?


Before we meet it would be better for you to gather as much information as possible; i.e; bring along any sample images, a plan of how you would like the day to run; we can then talk through what you would like to achieve in more detail.




How long does a photo shoot last ?


Now this really depends on what you want; a full wedding photo shoot can last for up to 10 hours, a simple portrait shoot 1 Hour. Please call me and we can discuss this in more detail.




What is the turnaround time from the shoot to getting my photographs ?


My standard turnaround time is 14 days, but I can do it quicker if requested (there is an additional charge for fast turnaround). The process is day 1 for the photo shoot & 7 -10 days for editing and retouching, 2 days for quality control and checks, then your pictures will be ready.




Can we use a photography studio?


I have access to very reasonably priced photography studios in Bristol. I know that studio work is a good solution for live modelling, delicate items meaning there is a difference in the control we have over the production; so yes of course a photography studio can be arranged. Booking a studio does incur additional costs; downtime, lighting and equipment set up and a studio engineer (if required). Please ask about 'studio time' if this is something you need.




What photography services do you offer?


I primarily offer portrait, fashion and wedding photography. I also offer product photography such as clothing flats, table top products. I can take photos in all types of settings. I enjoy using using natural light to achieve either a style creative or editorial finish.




I have an idea for a photo shoot shoot but I'm not sure how to put it together, do you offer a consultation service or help with this?


If you are unsure of how you want your shoot to look. I do offer photography consultancy; meaning we can spend time to pull your ideas together to create a comprehensive high quality photoshoot, ensuring you get the looks you want within a fixed budget. The more information you share with me before the editing, the better the images will be for you.




How much does it cost to book you?


Guide prices for weddings, portraits and hourly rates are published on the website. These are great value and youll get beautiful photos. But, if you so need something different - without comprimise; you and your loved ones want to capture that special day, or add value to your product, event, campaign or enterprise. Please contact me for full quote.




Why are you so much cheaper than most other photographers ?


My pricing structure is plain and simple, there are no hidden costs. I have invested in good quality reliable equipment that I trust which gives me excellent results; In short I believe by offering a bit more comes the opportunity to meet new people, share ideas and do more work.




Who own the rights to the images once they have been taken?


I will assign full usage of all the pictures over to you; this is so you can use them however you want and for as long as you want. Please note this is not withstanding other agreements such as when hiring models; and their contracts may carry thier own limitations for use.




When do I need to pay for my photography shoot?


To book i will need a small deposit. The final payment is due once your images are finished and completed.




Where are you based ?


I am based in Bristol, England, United Kingdom.
