Commissioning my services is not complicated, I am a flexible and friendly guy to deal with and take a highly professional approach to my clients. I am based in Glasgow, but can work nationwide.
Take a look through the galleries on my site; each is filled with pictures from a number of different occasions and shows the range of different image I produce.
The best alternative wedding photography includes elements of editorial, street, architectural and landscape photography, and of course portrature - all areas in which I have over a decade of experience. Commissions I undertake include:
- Engagements, weddings and elopements
- Lifestyle photography (Couples, family and child photography)
- Editorial (Conceptual photography and architectural)
- Musician or band photography / album artwork
- Business (promotional images including staff, interiors, exteriors, products)
I also offer tutoring and image mastering:
- Digital photo re-touching / re-mastering
- One-on-one / small group photography tutoring
- One-on-one / small group post-processing tutoring (Adobe Lightroom 5, Photoshop CS5+)
- High school, college & university workshops
- Mounted print sales or licensing of images
To give you the best quote I will need a few details about what you have in mind, how long you'd like me to attend and where you'd need me to travel to. If you are over 15 miles from Glasgow, reasonable travel costs will be included in the quote. All quotes are provided without obligation.
Engagements, weddings and elopements
I can tailor several packages for you. In each case I take a documentary approach, candidly telling the story of you and your day, avoiding clichéd images and leaving the cheese where it belongs - on the canapé tray! I enjoy working on alternative weddings and arrangements, including elopements (just you, a celebrant and a great location) - the wilder the better. For a menu of prices, and to find out more about how I work with couples, please contact me and I'll send you a pdf. Elopements, being smaller and more intimate occasions, will cost less; likewise if you have a particularly adventurous wedding planned, have a chat with me about them as I can offer great deals for an opportunity to capture your unique & alternative day.
The price will cover everything, from meeting/speaking ahead of your big day, an optional pre-wedding 'couples' shoot, my discreet and thoughtful coverage of your day (from bride/groom preparation until the evening is in full swing), and the careful selection and post-production of 250+ edited print-ready high-res images. You will be able to view images in a private online viewing gallery and download low-res copies to share with friends online. I send the final high-res versions on a high-capacity USB stick in a bespoke presentation box.
I do not usually provide a direct printing and photobook service given that such strong online services are now available, but I can assist you with your choices.
For couples interested in something rather special, the best available option on the market (in my opinion) is Folio Albums. Stewart and Julie Randall produce the most wonderful albums I have seen, with superb paper and print quality. Folio Albums are only available through professional photographers, and if you'd like to invest in a piece of art that you can hold in your hands (and will stand the test of time) I'd be happy to arrange this.
For portraiture / commercial business contracts I usually charge £75/hr including 1 hour of editing, the final price will depend on the number of images and locations required. All costs are negotiable, depending on the job, so please enquire.
I sell a limited number of my own prints, including many of the images on this site. Print prices range from £50 (unmounted) to £250 depending on size and medium. I usually recommend Hahnemühle FineArt paper or other matt photorag paper. Please contact me for sizing options and prices, giving a description of the image you'd like (or the name, if I've provided one). I'm happy to negotiate licences for the commercial use of my images - if you would like to licence an image for commercial use, feel free to contact me. Some images of individuals are not for sale. Other images are available via Getty.
From £5 per image depending upon your requirements / number of images. Ask for a quote if you have a large volume. I can enhance and improve any image(s) that you might want to have professionally printed. You will be supplied with a watermarked galley proof and, if satisfied, the digital file will be emailed to you after payment.
I prefer Direct Bank Transfer, but will accept cash or PayPal.
