“You are a very, very good photographer”
Damian McGillicuddy (Master Photographer)

Booking a professional photo shoot

This is how it works

I offer three types of professional photo shoot to the general public; the Standard photo shoot, the Model Experience photo shoot, and the Fantasy/Storytelling photo shoot

  • All my photos shoots are custom designed for you
  • Whatever type of photo shoot you want, all my professional lighting skills and experience will be at your service
  • Look at my photogalleries and blog for inspiration

If you are have any questions give me a ring, and if you are still undecided, why not come and have a friendly chat in my studio (strictly by appointment only)


Standard photo shoot

This includes all types of family photo shoots (babies, families, pets)

My booking fee is £75 (non-refundable). This gets you;

  1. A pre-shoot consultation
    We discuss what you want, and how to achieve that. We can talk about anything that might affect your photos, such as location, clothing, and photographic style. If you come to my studio, you can also look at photographic products . All of this will help you decide what you want to get from your photo shoot. Pregnant mums, and mums with newborns will probably prefer to do this consultation using the phone and e-mail
  2. The photo shoot itself
    I do not hurry my photo shoots, and I never book more than one photo shoot a day. I allow up to four hours for a newborn baby shoot
  3. A viewing session
    You will be invited back to my studio to see your photos and decide what you want to do with them


The "Model Experience" photo shoot

The booking fee is £155 (non-refundable) and this is what you get for that investment;

  1. A Pre-shoot consultation
    This is when we plan your photo shoot. It is best that you come to my studio for this. We will discuss what kind of look (or looks) you want to achieve. We can look at samples of my own work and other photographers.
  2. Makeover from a professional make up artist
    A professional hair and make up artist to make you look your very best
  3. Three hours shooting time in the studio and/or a local location
    We will take stunning photos of you
    You are responsible for bringing your own clothes, and you can change your clothes as many times as you wish within the available time
    Your time starts from when you first step in front of the camera, fully made up and wearing your first outfit. You have three hours from that point
  4. A personalised "viewing" of the final images in my studio
    After the shoot we will book a time for your viewing session
    This is when you decide what you want to do with your images. The images you see will have been retouched to a certain standard, to give you a good idea of the final image. However because retouching is very time consuming, they may not have been retouched to a final magazine standard yet
  5. Final retouching as required
    We will take a close look at any of the images you want to buy as products, and decide if further retouching is required to bring them to fashion magazine standard
  6. A personalised "app" containing your selected images that you can instal on your phone and share. Valued at £65 I will include this for free.


Fantasy and storytelling photo shoots

These are specialized custom shoots. Prices start at £75 if you take responsibility for ayour own make up and all costumes. I can help source excellent make up artists, some of whom specialise in special effects. I may be able to help find costumes, depending on size and type, but can't guarantee this.


Commercial photography

If you want a quote for commercial photography (eg fashion, clothing or promotional shoots) or professional modelling portfolios please contact me directly. Please note I do not do product photography (ie photos of objects other than clothes for catalogues). If you want a photographer for this type of work, look for "packshot photography".
