Your question not answered here?

How much is the sitting?

The sitting costs 95 per hour (price correct as at 1st January 2013).  This includes 15 - 30 full-sized images and put onto CD for you or sent to you via Dropbox or WeTransfer.

How long does a sitting take?

This is entirely up to you, but I would recommend two hours.

How many photos do you take?

I promise a minimum of 15 images for you to select from.  However, I often take a lot more!

What is included in the cost of the sitting?

The cost includes enhancements to each and every image (removing any blemishes, dark lines, etc.) so each photograph is the best it possibly can be. 

Can I buy a Gift Voucher?

If you are looking for an unusual present a personalised Gift Voucher is a great idea!  The recipients name will appear on the Voucher (and the price will not!).

When do I get to see my photos?

I usually take half a dozen shots and then download them to the PC so you can see the images as we work through the sitting.  Any you do not like will be deleted straight away (so you only end up with photos you really like).  When the images have been enhanced they will be put on to a CD and sent to you.

Do I have to bring my own clothes?

I have a wardrobe of clothing and props you are welcome to use.  However, I cannot cater for every taste so I always advise my customers to bring their own favourite clothing.

I don't have any experience modelling, how will I know how to pose?

I do not use professional models for any of my photography.  All the photos you see on the Dream Visions website are ordinary members of the public.  I will expect you to be a little bit nervous the first time you step in front of the camera (everyone is!) and I will guide you on the best ways to sit and stand to get the best photos.

I'm not a model, what if I'm not pretty enough?

In the society we live in we are not encouraged to think of ourselves as beautiful unless we are a high paid model appearing in Vogue!  I want to change that perception.  Everyone is beautiful.  All you need is the right pose and the right lighting.

Who has the copyright to the photos?

Traditionally the copyright remains with the photographer.  However, I will always relinquish the copyright to my customers.  I only use images on the Dream Visions website if I have written permission from my customers.

What is the age limit?

You need to be over 18 but there is no upper age limit!  Everyone is potential catwalk material - all you need is the right person to bring that out in you.

Do you do location work?

Yes, however this is subject to travel costs and time involved.

Do you work evenings and weekends?

Yes, and Bank Holidays too!

Will you do my makeup for me?

No, I am not a professional makeup artist, but you are welcome to bring a makeup artist and/or hairstylist with you.  Please note that the time taken to do hair and make up will count as part of the sitting time.  I would advise you to do your hair and makeup before arriving at the studio.

Can I bring a friend with me?

Many people feel they need a little 'moral support' when they visit the studio for the first time!  Please feel free to bring a friend along with you.

Can my partner be in the photos with me?

Yes, you can have someone else in the photos with you.  However, should your partner want individual shots taken during your sitting he or she will have to pay an extra fee.

Can I get a photo done for my online profile?

Yes.  If you are just looking for an appropriate style photo for an online profile then I can offer you a special package for just 45.  The package includes a half hour sitting and 4 photos on CD.  Please note that this special rate is for individuals only and not available to groups.

Will my photos appear on the Dream Visions website?

The images that are on the Dream Visions website only appear with the written permission of my customers.  If you do not sign a release form your photographs will not be used on my  website.  If you do sign a release form I will always ask which of the images taken at the sitting can be used before putting them 'live'.
