What should I wear to my photoshoot?
Depending on the end result you have in mind, clothing can make a huge difference in photography. Advice on outfits can be given if desired to help co-ordinate the final look of your images.
Uncomfortable infront of a camera?
Don’t worry at all! Graeme’s approach is very relaxed, friendly and informal. He fully understands that images of bride & grooms, school kids all the way down to tiny toddlers are always best when subject is totally at ease. Having a photo session should always be an enjoyable experience.
Specific poses or style in mind?
Graeme is highly experienced in posing large groups, small groups and individuals and will give guidance. However if you have a specific pose or look you want to replicate, simply send samples before hand and it won’t be a problem!
Simply get in touch with your requirements and a time can be arrange to suit you.
Family sessions tend to last for around an hour where you will then see unedited shots before session ends to ensure we have all the images your require. Edited proofs will then follow a day or two later. Prints and canvasses typically only take around a week to arrive once ordered.
