FAQ

Is there a deposit to pay?

Yes, once the date/time/price are agreed an invoice will be issued for 50% of the total fee. This 50% is the deposit that should be paid within 3 working days of issue. If the photoshoot is less that one week away, this should be paid within 24-hours. The remainder of the fee is payable within 24-hours of delivery of the images.

Are you insured?

Yes, I am fully insured with professional indemnity, public liability and employers' liability coverage.

What if I need to cancel or reschedule?

Reschedule - Get in touch as soon as possible and we can discuss rescheduling. No re-booking deposit will be necessary if informing within 14-days of shoot date, however half of the deposit (i.e. 25% of whole fee) will be payable if postponing less than 14-days before the agreed date.

Cancel - Deposit payments will not be refunded if you completely cancel the shoot less than 14-days prior to the date booked. Half of the deposit (i.e. 25% of whole fee) will be refunded in cancelling more than 14-days in advance.

Who will be at the shoot and can I bring someone else to watch?

A simple shoot involves just you and the photographer, with more complex photoshoots possible also featuring an assistant to help with lighting, plus hair and makeup people. You are very welcome to bring someone along to watch the photoshoot, but please let me know beforehand.

Why not consider a group booking? Email ian@ianjohnshaw.com for a custom quote.

How long does the session last?

This depending on the type of package booked or custom session agreed on. Can be as little as 30 minutes or can last all day.

How much retouching / editing / airbrushing is done on the pictures?

This is completely up to you!
As standard any temporary blemishes (i.e. spots) will be removed and skin tones evened out, but skin texture is not affected leaving the image looking like you on your best day! Specialised sharpening techniques are used to subtly focus attention to the focal point of the image (usually the eyes).

How long after the shoot will I get to see the photos?

Usually within 2-3 days for most photoshoots, but more complex sessions could be up to a week. Turnaround time will vary for any additional retouching of images beyond those included in the package booked.

How will I receive the images?

All photos are provided in electronic format accessible via an interactive online gallery through my website here, with options to download JPEG files in High Resolution (3600px) and Web Size (1024px).

Are physical prints available?

Yes, physical prints on paper, canvas, or metal can be ordered directly through the interactive online gallery. These prints are provided by a company specialising in art gallery quality photo printing. Contact me for a detailed price list of the various sizes and materials.
