WHAT'S INCLUDED IN THE SESSION PRICE?
Our session price covers the cost of hosting your photoshoot. Depending on the type of session we sometimes charge for travel. The session price also includes 3 complimentary image downloads. All remaining images in your gallery are available to buy, either individually or as a collection, including a big-hearted discount for full gallery download.
Get in touch to receive your copy of our session brochure for full image price breakdown.
HOW WILL I RECEIVE THE IMAGES?
When your images are ready, you will be emailed a link to view your gallery online. From here you will be offered the option to purchase as many of your images as you wish.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE FOR OUR PHOTOS TO BE READY?
We tend to be quick! Depending on how busy we are, for city session you can receive your photos the day after, or up to two weeks after the shoot. We will give you an estimate at the end of your session depending on our workload at the time of your photoshoot.
HOW MANY PHOTOGRAPHERS WILL THERE BE?
It will always be the two of us shooting, unless one of us is ill, in which case we would offer you the possibility to choose between a longer session to make sure to capture plenty of images, or a cancellation.
Only one of us will be hosting a solo portrait session.
DO YOU TRAVEL OUTSIDE OF SCOTLAND?
Yes we do! We always feel honoured when we are asked to travel. Please get in touch to discuss terms, every travel session is different.
HOW CAN I MAKE A PAYMENT?
Payment can be made via bank transfer, PayPal payments or through Setmore, the app we use for instant bookings . We ask for the session price to be paid in full prior to your photoshoot.
DO YOU CAPTURE VIDEO TOO?
We definitely can! If you are interested in both photography and video we can divide the work and have one of us dedicated to capturing images whilst the other films. Note that our rate would be higher for this service, as filming requires a lot more equipment and post-production editing time. Get in touch to discuss your film ideas and together let’s create a bespoke session for you and your partner!
WHAT EQUIPMENT DO YOU USE?
We are Canon lovers. We adore the feel of a mechanical camera, with a mirror that you can hear!
At the moment we are shooting with two Canon 5D Mark III’s as our main cameras, with back up cameras being a 6D and a 80D (that we also use to film).
We use Sigma Art lenses: 35mm f1.4, 50mm f1.4, 85mm f1.4 and the epic Canon 70-200mm f2.8.
WHEN SHOULD WE ENQUIRE?
Any time is a great time! Depending on the time of the year we can accept last minute bookings up to the day before the session. But we always recommend to book as early as possible to make sure that we are available for you.
WHAT HAPPENS IF THERE IS BAD WEATHER FORECAST ON THE DAY OF OUR SHOOT?
Good question! It is Scotland after all, and even though we love an overcast sky for photography, rain can make a session impossible.
First thing that you need to know is that the weather is very unpredictable here, you cannot really trust the forecast in advance. We will always have to wait until at least the day before to make a serious decision as to whether or not the session can happen. We tend to wait until the very last minute to make a cancellation. But if the weather forecast isn’t on our side we offer a few options:
-Postpone the photoshoot. Bad weather doesn’t usually last all day, especially in Edinburgh. We always try and be flexible and we will always try and offer alternative time slots, whether it is a few hours earlier or later or even different days depending on your flexibility.
-Cancelling with refund. If the weather makes it impossible to run a photoshoot and we can’t find an alternative time slot then we will cancel the shoot with a 100% refund.
WHAT IS YOUR CANCELLATION POLICY?
If we have to cancel the session because of bad weather you will be refunded 100%.
Every cancellation is different. We're not strict, but refunds will depend on circumstance.
WHO OWNS THE IMAGES?
We retain the rights to use all images taken as Photoshoot Scotland. We do offer the option to purchase full ownership of images to those who wish. We always ask permission from the appropriate guardian before sharing any images from family sessions including photographs of children.
