Frequently Asked Questions

Where are you based?

I am based near Matlock Bath, Derbyshire, I have a studio and work in various locations around the area

Can you travel out of area?

I can travel, there would be an extra charge for mileage and accommodation if required

I do not provide make up, I can recommend some local makeup artists. For the horror shoots I can CGI makeup effects for zombies, ghosts, witches. I have been a professional graphic designer & digital artist for over 24 years.

What is provided on a shoot?

Kids themed shoots – I have a selection of superhero, princess and fairy costumes to suit 3-11 year olds.

Adult themed shoots – require you to bring along your own custom / outfit.

Fine art shoots – require you to bring your own smart clothing but please do ask if you are unsure.

Horror shoots – require you to bring along your own costumes / clothing. Please be aware that due to the nature of the shoots you will most likely get dirty or stained clothing.

I do have a selection of props for all shoot types but if you do have an idea in mind please contact me to discuss and I will be happy to help.

What are your shoots like?

My shoots are always fun and relaxed, I will direct you if you haven’t done any photoshoots before and will make it super easy for you. I also run a policy of no discrimination or judgement.

Your age, sex, height, weight, disability, sexual orientation, religion, race or anything else that can be discriminated against does not matter in my sessions, it is a safe, welcome space.

Do you have parking?

Yes there is parking at the studio

What licence do I get for my session?

You are granted a personal licence to print and use the photos for your own personal non-commercial use. All files are provided to you at a high resolution to print easily up to 24×26 inches.

If you would like a commercial licence please contact me to discuss your needs and get a quote.

Do you offer prints?

I no longer offer prints as more and more of my clients have started wanting the digital files to show off on social media. I can recommend several high quality print companies if you would like prints. The files provided are 300dpi high resolution files for printing small to large prints.

How much are extra files?

For files that are not included in your package there is a charge £50 and this includes the non-commercial, personal use licence.
