What should I wear to my photoshoot?
Depending on the end result you have in mind, clothing can make a huge difference. 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. Above all he fully understands that images of any subject are best when they are totally at ease. More than anything a photo session should always be an enjoyable experience.
Specific poses or style in mind?
Graeme is highly experienced in groups of any size or individuals. In conclusion you will be given 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. Thereafter you will see unedited shots before session ends. This will ensure we have all the images your require. After this edited proofs will then follow a day or two later. Prints and canvasses typically only take around a week to arrive once ordered.
