COMMERCIAL IMAGES FOR SMALL BUSINESSES - INFORMATION AND PRICES

BEFORE THE SHOOT

Prior to the shoot we will meet to discuss the nature of your business and requirements. Together we will develop a concept for the shoot. I can take the pictures on your premises, in your home, outdoors or wherever is appropriate, or set up a studio on location. Depending on your preferences, you can choose, before or after the shoot, between colour or black and white images.

My emphasis is on high quality images, an exceptional service and value for money. I want you to be happy with the results. With many years as a newspaper photographer, I can create the atmosphere and image you are looking to convey to your clients, through distinctive images.

I live in Rickmansworth, West Hertfordshire and normally cover a radius of 15 miles which includes parts of Buckinghamshire, Berkshire, Middlesex and London. However, if you live further away please contact me and we can make a alternative arrangement.


AFTER THE SHOOT

I will edit the images and upload the selection within one week as a slide show on a secure web gallery, accessible for 6 weeks. To help you with the selection I will give you a list of my favourite images. You can choose the pictures and products online in your own time. Once you have made your selection, you can forward the shopping cart to me by email.

Alternatively we can arrange a viewing and I will advise you on the best presentation of your photographs for advertising and marketing purposes, brochures or  online display . Furthermore I work with an excellent supplier of high quality frames or canvasses to give you the best finish to your photographs.

After we have discussed the final details, I will edit the images, remove any blemishes using Photoshop, and prepare the invoice payable by bank transfer, cheque or online by PayPal or credit card. After you have purchased the images they will be accessible online for another 12 months. Furthermore, I will keep the images for a second year in the archive. An express service is available on request- surcharge applies.
