Below you'll find some of my most frequently asked questions. If you're unsure of something and it isn't listed below, please don't hesitate to use the 'Contact Me' page to ask- I'm more than happy to help, and no question is a silly one.
How long do sessions typically last?
My usual portrait sessions usually last for about an hour, however it can vary from 30mins to an hour and a half.
When working with children and animals, trying to rush usually just ends in everyone getting stressed. I want my photo sessions to be enjoyable for everyone involved, and so if we need to take that little bit longer to ensure everyone is happy and relaxed, then we do- No worries.
What should I wear?
The short answer is whatever you're comfortable in: These photographs are being created for you, and so it's entirely up to you how you'd like to be seen in them.
That being said, for groups I suggest wearing similar (but not identical) colours/patterns, so that you all as meld well a group and nobody clashes.
For pet shoots owners should wear walking boots/trainers/wellies.
What if it rains?
Not to worry, if the weather is typically Scottish then we can re-arrange to a better day free of charge... Rain and moody clouds can make for some great photos though, so if you want to go ahead then I'm game!
Do I need to order prints through you?
Your gallery will contain a store which allows you to purchase prints, digital copies, and packages if you wish to do so.
All my Session Packages include a number of images (be them digital or physical prints) as standard. You are under no commitment to purchase any additional photographs from your session unless you want to.
Full-resolution digital copies come with a partial copyright signover, meaning that you are free to print the image as many times as you like, to any size you like, as many different ways as you like, where ever you like! If you select this option I particuarly recommend using Loxley Colour Labs in Glasgow who's quality is second to none.
What are your credentials?
I acheived my Higher National Diploma in Photography in 2017, and haven't stop learning since.
I'm qualified in First Aid, Canine First Aid, and also hold my UKCC Level One in Equestrian Coaching, gold BHS membership, and the correct Photographic Inurances, to give you peace of mind.
I've got a police disclosure, hold a valid PVG, and an in-date certificate in Safeguarding & Protecting Children.
I was shortlisted at the 2019 HorseScotland Awards for 'Equine Business of the Year' and 'Equestrian Photograph of the year', and in 2020 I was delighted to be crowned The Training Barn's 'UK Equine Photographer of the Year 2020'
