Process

Having photographed projects for a diverse range of clientele, from private individuals, start-up’s and national and overseas businesses, I recognise that commissioning a photographer may be new for some people.  I do however, have a lot of patience and will guide you through the whole process from start to finish, ensuring a super smooth photoshoot and a set of images which will engage with your target audience and work hard for years to come.

When you enquire about a photography commission, it is best to provide me with a general overview about your project, your business and your photography requirements. I will then send you a link to a briefing form where you can describe your project in more detail and advise on how you intend to use the images. Once I receive the briefing form back from you, I will then review the information and send you an estimated fee. This fee will include a breakdown for the creative, usage licence and expenses, together with my terms and conditions. If you decide to go ahead with a booking, I will then issue you with an invoice where a deposit amount would need to be paid prior to the date of the shoot. Upon completion of the shoot, the images will be post-processed and supplied to you in both low and high resolution format for you to download and start using.

Fees

Working with a diverse range of clientele, all with different project briefs and image requirements means every shoot is unique, therefore a fee is estimated accordingly. For bookings where a high volume of images may be required during the shoot, or where the brief is quite flexible, then a day rate may be better suited, which could be spread over several days if required. For jobs where the brief is tighter, for example, where a specific quantity of images are required, or where subjects need to be lit and photographed in a particular way, then a pricing per image approach may be more relevant.

My estimated fee includes planning, creative, post-processing, usage licence and expenses. This means you will know the total estimated cost to allow you to use the images. Any expenses relating to the shoot such as travel or accommodation, for example, are payable upfront with the deposit prior to the day of the shoot.

A site recce is available and can be costed into the estimated fee should you wish me to preview a location beforehand, which in some cases I may advise on. Sometimes a recce is a good idea if the job will be complex, or if I need to scout suitable locations with which to shoot external aspects of architecture from. Location recce’s can also allow for estimates to be better fine-tuned, where additional costs, expenses or time needed on location may have been overlooked.

Licensing

Licensing is considered good practice within professional photography and all of my images come with a generous usage licence as standard, which is included within my estimate fee. If you require more flexible usage with the images, across additional media for a longer period of time, or across multiple territories for example, then the licence fee can be negotiated and adjusted to suit your needs. Should you opt for my standard usage licence, but then decide at a later date that you require additional usage, then I can issue you with a new licence based on your new requirements, that way you are only paying for the use of the images that you need.
