portrait & make-over photography
In addition to our commercial work, we provide portrait/makeover and model portfolio shoots for individuals, we approach shoots for private clients in exactly the same way as our commercial shoots, we believe everyone should have the experience and stunning results of a professional photo shoot either in the studio or on location.
Like our commercial assignments, no two photo shoots are the same, except they all begin with a cup of coffee and a chat about what we’re going to achieve.
While your getting ready we’ll prepare for the first shot and then drop you in for a test shot, we may need to tweak a few things but once that’s done we’re creating images. Don’t worry if you’ve never been photographed professionally before, its our job to direct you and make you feel relaxed !
As we shoot, images appear on a large screen so you can see the results, we can try different ideas and make changes to your styling, the lighting & backgrounds etc.
A session can take anything from an hour to a day – it’s not an exact science and it depends on the number of shots we’re trying to achieve & we always tell you the cost in advance.
All our options include the following :-
• proof files of every image from the shoot on CD or USB Drive
• a personal website in our client zone for making your selections
• a retouched archival print suitable for framing
