What to expect from your branding shoot
Frequently Asked Questions
• How do I book you?
To book a branding shoot, simply get in touch. We will have a quick chat via phone or email so I can find out what you are looking for and you can ask me any questions you may have. If you would like to go ahead, we will pencil a date in our diaries and I will send you my booking contract along with the deposit details. A £125 booking deposit is due on the day of the booking to secure your date and current prices. The deposit is non-refundable. The final balance for your session is due on the day of your photo shoot.
• What happens next?
Next, I will ask you to complete a brand description for your business. This will help me get to know more about you and your brand and what you need from your images now and in the near future.
• Do we speak again before the shoot?
Absolutely. Once I have received your brand description will have a 1-1 online consultation to start planning for your session. This is where it gets exciting as we will start to really visualise your shoot and discuss locations, outfits, props, how you plan to use your images and anything else that is important for your images. I will also send you my personal branding guide with top tips for your session.
• How many images will we take at the session?
This varies from session to session and depends on your image requirements. The mini-branding collection will give you around 30+ images to choose from, the branding story around 80+ images and the full branding collection quite a few more!
• When will my images be ready?
The images from your personal branding shoot will be individually edited and ready for you to see and download directly from your own online gallery ca. 2-3 weeks after your session. Once you have downloaded your images you can start to use them straight away!
• How far do you travel?
I am based in Midlothian and cover Edinburgh, the Lothians, central Scotland and the Scottish Borders. Travel up to 30 miles is included in a session, thereafter I charge a small travel fee of 45p / mile. Parking, public transport and accommodation if required are charged at cost.
• My work space is not ideal for photography. Where else can we go?
The great thing with a personal branding shoot is that it can take place anywhere. It does not have to be at your actual work space, but it can be at any location that reflects your brand and personality. Most venues and locations require that photography permission is requested prior to a session but do not worry. This is very normal and I will help make these arrangements. It is usually very straight forward and important to have in place to ensure you have the rights to use the images taken at a specific location to promote your business.
• What if it rains?
Do not worry, if you have booked an outdoor personal branding shoot and the weather is not on our side we will find an alternative date as soon as possible.
