The Commission Process

01

 

We can either have a chat over the phone or you can email me with your initial project ideas/requirements, and then we can plan a date. Because the weather can be so changeable here in the UK, I'll ask you for a few dates in the week that work for you, and that will be when your garden is ideal for my photography.

A day of sunshine but with thin white cloud to soften the light, but ideally sunrise or sunset are are wonderful to shoot in for the quality golden light.

PLANNING

 

Planning is essential. It is helpful if I can spend a day or two in advance of the shoot familiarising myself with the garden/space. During this time I will familiarise myself with what's what, and how the light travels through the garden. If you are available during this time, it will be valuable to carryout a 'walk & talk through' whereby I would love to know the areas and plants most meaningful to you, plus discuss a must-have image capture list. I will always endeavour to tell a story through my work.

THE SESSION

 

I’ll arrive at the agreed time, and if it is an early start I will start to capture the garden without you to make the most of the beautiful morning light. On completion of the shoot, and on return to my base I will post the rolls of film to my professional lab, and will be in touch with a private gallery for you to view, usually within a few days.

PRACTICALITIES, TERMS & INVESTMENT

 

 

Having an understanding of the end product will be most helpful. For example, what are you wanting to achieve?

 

Think about future plans and desires, where your business is or could potentially go e.g. will your garden be suitable for education e.g. workshops for florists/garden & flower photographers.

 

Will this shoot be to reflect the latest changes/season, and so, will you want regular updated imagery for your website and or social media? 

 

How do you want the images to be used e.g. for a publication [magazine, book etc.], and/or website/social media, online/offline marketing material.

Looking for repeat shoots to capture seasonality, changes & developments?
