General Questions

Your photo shoot takes place at our professional well equipped private studio in Great Barugh.

Our studio is blacked out during our photoshoots to ensure we have complete control over the lighting, this is essential for this type of studio photography.

We have seven studio flash heads that are all controlled from the camera, we have a good selection of lighting modifiers as well as the expertise to be able to shape the light to the individual requirements of the different types of images we will be creating with you.

The answer to this question will largely depend upon which of our studio packages you choose and what you wish to have included in your photoshoot.

You can bring your favourite underwear items, stockings, a basque, swim wear, evening and casual wear, boots, stilettos, jewellery, any other items you feel would work for you and you feel comfortable in or with.

We will be happy to advise you at your free pre shoot consultation what will work for you, so please do bring a few things with you at that time.

We have a small collection of clothing accessories available to enhance your photographic shoot.

We have a treatment room, that has a changing area through the doorway at the back that you utilise for the duration of your shoot.

There are some hangers to hang your clothes on, we also put a cover over the treatment couch so that you can sort out outfits etc.

The changing area also has full length mirrors so you can see how you look before coming through to the studio, though the more time you spend looking in the mirror, the less time we have to create images with you.

Yes absolutely, we offer you a professional photography service, as such we do not utilise clients images for advertising, or showing to other people, your privacy is assured.

Models are employed for the images that we use on this site and in our physical portfolio, wall prints and advertising media. You will receive the best images of your shoot as watermarked internet ready images, to enable you share them with others should you choose to do so.

Following your studio photography session the images need to be fully processed and printed so that you can return to choose which ones you want from our vision wall.

This is the longest part of the process and should happen within two weeks of the shoot. Depending upon the package you have chosen:

  • Personal portfolios, fine art and maternity images will be compiled into your presentation box at this point for you to take home with you.
  • Fine art large framed print and calendars will need to be printed from your choice and framed or compiled ready to be collected at a latter date.
Yes, we require a deposit of £50 when booking any of our studio packages apart form the Health and Beauty shoot.

The balance is then paid on the day of your shoot. To reclaim your deposit we require you to give us at least 7 days notice of cancellation prior to the booked date of the shoot.

Additional products are paid for in full at the time of placing the order.

If you have a friend who would also like to have a shoot done at the same time, then we can offer you both a 10% price reduction on the shoot package price.

Apart from that we recommend that you come on your own, in our experience people often seem to be more self-conscious when someone they know is watching them pose for the camera.

We need you to feel free and uninhibited so that you can relax during your shoot, allowing you to bring forth your inner essence and beauty, the you that only you see in the reflection from the mirror.

Having someone else around can also be a distraction to us. If it is absolutely imperative that you bring a friend then they can wait in another room within earshot during your session.

If you have not found the answer you are looking for on this page, then please feel free to message us with your question, often the only silly question is the one that does not get asked.
