Pricing details for all photographic services and products
When choosing a photographer, an important consideration for most people is the cost involved in booking a shoot and purchasing prints or digital images. You have a budget in mind and are looking for good value. How you determine those things depends to a large extent on what a great photograph means to you, and your understanding of what goes into creating one.
Photography is so accessible now, most of us have digital cameras in our phones capable of producing fairly decent images, and an Instagram filter for every occasion. Then, for those who do want a professional job done, there have never been more photographers to choose from. So why would anyone consider paying (or asking for) more than the commodity rate? Because for some people getting the right images and having a great experience doing it is not a commodity choice. It’s a personal one, just like buying clothes to look your best in, or choosing a piece of art. And for others it’s a one time opportunity for that special moment in their life or business, so they want to feel assured of getting an excellent service and images to match it.
With a good portrait, wedding or event photographer you’re not just paying for consistently great images you can rely on (your time is valuable too), you’re paying for the experience being a smooth and enjoyable one, for their skill and creativity in helping you relax and look your best, as well as the hours you don’t see, in preparation and in processing the images after the shoot to add those final little touches of quality.
All these factors together are why great images are an investment in precious moments and memories.
If you would like to compare my services with other offerings, it’s worth being informed so you know what you’re really comparing. So here’s a guide for how to compare the price, quality and value of a photographer.

Location shoot prices are the same as above for my studio photography sessions, with any travel and hire expenses added. Please get in touch to discuss your requirements.
Photo sessions normally last between 60 and 120 minutes. Shorter or longer times can usually be accommodated on request and depending on the brief and number of images required.
After the images have been processed you’ll have the opportunity to buy the ones you love. No obligation to buy and no pressure selling here.
All photo sessions include 1 complimentary 6×4 print of your favourite image.

Postal delivery is £5 for sizes 10×8 and below, £10 for larger.
*A range of papers and finishes (inc gloss and matte) are available for photographic prints, to suite your taste and the intended space for display.
All paper and canvas prints are made using the Giclée process with Fine Art Guild certified printers, for museum exhibit quality results.
Other sizes and formats, gift boxes and framing options available on request.
For those extra special image collections and occasions I offer beautifully presented and bespoke designed photo book albums.
Ordering a digital version for print too? Then you can get 25% off your print for that image.
Want multiple copies for friends and family? Get 15% off when you order at least 2 prints of the same image at the same size.
If you’re unsure of what print or finish to choose, or why it’s worth getting your prints made professionally, see my ‘getting your prints’ guide.
Prices for images from portrait photo shoots, in studio or location, for personal or personal business use*.
Images are delivered as a digital file. The price per image depends on number of images ordered and how you want to use those images. The more you order, the cheaper it is per image.
Image files for print usage are of high resolution to produce sharp, well defined, enlarged prints. Images for online usage (e.g. profile or website pics) are supplied in lower resolution suited for display on HD monitors and phones. Print usage orders include additional lower resolution versions for online usage as well.
|Package||Print and online usage (£)||Online only (£)|
If you have a specific number of images you want you can use the table below to find the price.
|Num Images Ordered||Price per Image (£)|
|Print and online usage (high res)||Online only (lower res)|
|Purchase all finished shots from session (up to 50 images):||Print and online – £800 (from £16 per digital image)|
|Online only – £600 (from £12 per digital image)|
|With both, files are provided on a premium USB3 stick.|

|Event Type||Price (£), Quarter/half/full day|
|Special occasions (excl’ weddings), family, corporate, governmental||190||270||520|

Above pricing for events is for my time and the supply of digital images. Travel expenses are not included.
A quarter day is anything up to 2 hours, half day up to 4 hours, full day up to 8 hours. The number of images delivered typically ranges from 50-400, depending on the type of event and the brief.
Please note that the style of shooting and level of digital finishing differs between event coverage and portrait photo shoots. If you’re looking for higher end production values as you’d find in a portrait session for your event photography, please get in touch to discuss your exact requirements.
