Commercial photography for small businesses

For small businesses, having pictures of yourself and your products on your website can make or break you. People can’t help but make ‘snap’ decisions about you before they’ve even met you! I specialise in providing small businesses with natural looking photographs. Whether you require a friendly and inviting looking portrait from your best angle, or an authentic and creative visual insight into your day-to-day work, I know how to make you look good enough to promote your business on a website or on promotional material.

SOME MORE INFORMATION

BEFORE THE SESSION

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 edit and upload a selection of  images of the photo session within 10 days on a secure web gallery. The gallery will be accessible for 4 weeks.At the start of the gallery I will showcase what I feel are the best images, but obviously you can choose the images you like the most. You can create a list of your favourite images online in your own time and contact me to discuss the products and the final order. All the images are available in colour or black and white.

Alternatively, we can arrange a viewing for you to select your photographs, frames and album with me and I will advise you on the best presentation. I work with an excellent supplier of high quality frames and coffee table books to give you the best finish to your photographs. After you have made your selection, I will edit the images and remove any blemishes.The photos from the session will be accessible for a period of one year after purchase.

PAYMENT, DEPOSIT AND CANCELLATIONS

Once we have agreed a date, I would ask for a £ 75 deposit , to secure your photo shoot. The deposit will then be deducted from the final invoice. Please contact me as soon as possible if you have to cancel, so that you do not lose your deposit, and can use it for another shoot at a later date.
