Portfolio packages are available for: musicians, actors, models, beauticians, hairdressers, etc. The cost will depend on the intended use of the image, and a variety of Photograph License Agreements are available, allowing you to choose the best package to meet your requirements.

Yes, you are welcome to bring someone along, and it is essential if you are under 18. To get the best from your photo shoot I would recommend that you ensure the person who you take along won't put you off or cause any distractions or risk.

I usually get the pdf file to you within 24 hours of the photo shoot. This file will have the best of the photographs in a document, from where you choose the final number you wish. There is no rush for you to choose, and once you have informed me of the photos you wish, I aim to return them within 2 weeks maximum (although often much sooner).
