I shoot both on location and in a superbly equipped 3,500 square foot studio situated at the heart of Newcastle Upon Tyne. See below for current rates. A comprehensive list of photographic services on offer can be viewed here.
For bookings I only accept bank transfer or cash in advance. A non-refundable 50% deposit secures the date if it has been confirmed available. My standard prices vary for both location and studio shoots and are as follows:
Additional hours charged at £60 each. All prices inclusive of travel within Tyne and Wear, professional retouching and images from the shoot digitally supplied. For other destinations, accommodation and travel expenses may need to be added. From high-quality digital C-Type to inkjet (Giclée) I also offer a range of professional printing options, including photo albums. These are charged for separately and paid for at the time of ordering. Request the current price list here. A tailored quote for individual commissions can be made to suit. Just drop me a line with your available dates, brief and requirements and I'll see what I can do for you.

Not at all. Professionally I started out as a portrait photographer, many years ago, and I'm used to getting the very best out of people by using skills learnt to generally put you at ease in front of a camera. You may find music helps you to relax and if it’s of any comfort I have a knack of capturing folk natural, non-posed and unforced with my style of joyful abandon. By the way I hate posing in front of a camera too!
Yes within reason you are welcome to change around 2-3 times if you wish. Bear in mind shooting time will be affected by these changes so book a longer slot if you wish to change many times over.
Ha ha with my background in fine art methinks you will not want me to fashion a work of "art" out of you! That said hair and makeup can be arranged upon request, by lovely fine individuals who are consummate professionals in their field.
Unless I contact you, I plan to meet you at the same time and place we agreed to. I will only reschedule if freak weather conditions are afoot and it would be a danger to shoot in. Always be prepared for unpredictability, it is Britain after all!
I shoot in RAW format, however all of your digital files will be made available to you as JPEGs (jpeg or jpg). The JPEG (developed by the Joint Photographic Experts Group) is a standard for compression using lossy compression algorithms for computer image files.
