Products and Fees

Session Fees

Session fees (also called reservation fees) for location portrait photography sessions are currently £135 for our standard attendance of up to two hours, perfect for up to 4 people (please see our Pet Photography area for pet portrait fees). Above this, add extra family members for a small additional fee. We’ll have a good chat with you before booking your session so that we can advise on the level of coverage which best suits your needs, and to tell you more about our products and pricing.  We’ll work with you at your home and/or a scenic or familiar location of your choice – providing you with a range of both controlled and spontaneous images which reflect your individual personality and lifestyle. Your session fee is payable at the time of booking. This fee includes:

  • Travel costs (within 25 miles of our office – thereafter additional mileage is charged at 40p/mile – if you’re a long way from us there will be a charge for our time beyond the first hour that we’re in transit)
  • Your photography and our uniquely personal service
  • The hours we spend meticulously editing and processing the photographs
  • Your own relaxed viewing and ordering consultation and/or private website viewing gallery if applicable
  • Access to our fabulous range of bespoke wall items and albums, which aren’t available to the general public

Product Fees

Following your session, your custom-made products are then purchased separately in the form of wall pieces, albums, or print box collections. Wall items include classic canvases, framed canvases, acrylics, and our range of classic and contemporary mounted and framed presentations (in a variety of sizes, styles and finishes). Frame options include simple or dramatic classic woods including oak, mahogany and ebony, distressed woods, and modern and classical metallics. Here are some examples of what you can expect to pay for your goods:

Framed Canvas Wraparound, Vintage Framed Canvas, Floating Gallery Prints, Acrylics and Box Frames from £215 (16″) to £480 (30″)
Bespoke archival framing and mounting under glass or acrylic from £250 (16″) to £695 (36″) including montages and panoramic sizes
Print Box containing 30 hand mounted 7×5″ photographs (traditional C-type prints) £380, or £795 (hand printed to fine art media)

Our handmade heirloom albums start from £495 for a simple yet elegant 9″ 20 page album, to £1,430 for an impressive 14″ 50 page silk or leather clad masterpiece. We have two further handmade album ranges with cover options from fine leathers and silks to glossy acrylics and metals. Full resolution digital files and small add-on items such as unframed prints and desk prints become available with any purchase.

Business clients – our fees are based on either a half day or day rate, which includes all post production work. Digital images are then licensed to you according to their size and frequency of use, please enquire for a tailored quote.

Timelines:

Our service is tailored to each individual client – following your session we’ll allow around two weeks for post-production, followed by your viewing appointment and the product design period (if you’ve chosen an album). We are then subject to the lead times of our laboratories and specialist manufacturers – wall items usually arrive within two or three weeks of ordering, or up to 6 weeks if you have chosen an album. Therefore we recommend that Christmas shoots ideally take place by the end of October if you’d like an album. However there’s no need to miss out on passing photography gifts to your friends and family – we can easily arrange a prepaid package presented as a gift letter (or you can purchase our Gift Vouchers in denominations of £75) for you to hand over to your loved one on Christmas Day (or on a birthday or any other occasion if similar time constraints apply). They can then get in touch with us to arrange their session when it’s convenient for them.
