Thinking about booking your headshot & portrait session with us but you have a few questions? Feel free to contact us at anytime using the message forms on this website and we'll get back to you ASAP. In the meantime, here are some answers to FAQs which I hope will help.
Q: How do I book you?
A: Really straightforward! Just drop us a message. Tell us a little bit about you, your need for a brand new professional headshot or portrait and any thoughts on style & preferences. We have several photoshoot options for you to think about and we'll be delighted to talk you through these so you can make the best choice for you. After that, let's compare diaries and book a date!
Q: What do I wear?
A: Our mantra when it comes to your choice of outfit is 'you've got to feel good wearing it'. Don't try to be anyone else. If you ask us for more detailed advice, we will say 'keep it simple', particularly if you have a wardrobe bursting with different styles! Go for timeless, classic items. Think smart casual. Like v-neck t-shirts & jeans, that always work well for headshots, polo-necks which frame the face are great too, open neck shirt/jacket combos for gents, white or black fitted blouse and fitted jeans combos always work well for girls. Having said that, please don't stress it! It's all part of the fun. Just ask yourself 'do I feel good wearing this?'.
Q: What can I do to prepare for the photoshoot?
A: The main thing is to arrive in a happy, positive, relaxed frame of mind. That is by far the best thing you can do to ensure a great result. So our advice is... try to have a good night's sleep, hydrate (although not too much coffee!), meditate, listen to good music. Whatever gets that positive energy flowing.
Q: What's your studio like?
A: The studio space we use is big, bright, spacious and open plan. It's fully equipped with different lights and different backdrops. It has super high ceilings, tall windows but most importantly it has a warm, welcoming, friendly atmosphere. And big sofas. It's located in Edinburgh city centre (Newington/Causewayside, just along from the Meadows). It has private parking, changing facilities.
Q: Do you photograph outdoors?
A: Absolutely. If it's an outdoor photoshoot you'd like, then let's throw some ideas around. The right location can add so much to the final portrait. Some of our best photoshoots have taken place outside. For photoshoots outwith Edinburgh, we would ask for expenses to cover travel costs and travel time.
