Portrait and Head shot Photography Prices

2021

On location or at my studio CameraWork45

Photographic Portraits Types and Prices

Portraits can be taken in my studio CameraWork45 in Felton Northumberland, or at a location of your choice, including your own home. There is a small fee for travelling to you. 

The price of a sitting typical varies with the amount of time it takes and then to the editing required in post-production. With me, there are no nasty surprises: the sitting and a selection of edited photos (delivered to you electronically)  with printing rights are included in the price. Please note that conditions and extra fees may apply for extensive corporate and/or publishing use.

All photos receive basic retouching and look great at standard viewing sizes. Further editing can be requested for larger prints and depending on what you’re needing to achieve.

Where I Travel:

Northumberland, Berwick, Alnwick, Morpeth, Newcastle, Tyne and Wear, Durham and the Borders.

 

Types of Portraits

Head Shots

 

Head shots are typically used on social media, in brochures and on prints to show your professional persona. They can be formal or relaxed depending on your intention. They are often taken against a neutral studio-type background .  It’s ideal to wear something without a pattern and of a colour that contrasts nicely with your skin.

Head shot prices

There exists a number of lighting styles. You may be happy with just one style, or want to try different  styles.  

  • Studio :
    • electronic passport only   £ 19
    • One style of lighting :        £ 45
    • Two styles of lighting:       £ 59
    • Three styles of lighting:    £ 70
  • On location
    • add an extra fee of £29
    • ensure you have a room that lends itself to the session.

 

Portraits

Portraits are even more personal than head shots. They can be captured in or out of the studio, be posed or spontaneous, framed tightly or capture you in a meaningful environment, busy and so on. More time is needed to deepen the rapport between you and the photographer and to experiment with different approaches.

classic and contemporary approaches

Depending on your project, more than essential editing may be needed.

A Word About Younger Children in and out of the Studio

When safe and happy , very young people are more likely to present naturally. A studio can be intimidating. This can trigger a refusal to pose for the camera.  Some young people may need special arrangements, for example a pre-visit to aquaint themselves with the studio environment.

Outdoors, in play or in the safety and comfort of the arms of a loving carer are ideal situations to ensure young people enjoy being photographed. But a studio can be great fun too.  You know your child(ren) best. 
Don’t hesitate to discuss anything that we need to build in to the session to make it as enjoyable as possible for everyone.

 

Given room to play or simply to settle, it is possible to capture candid portraits.

 

 

Special Photography Portrait Projects

You may need one or more portrait for a special project, such as creating content for a music album or a brochure to present your work.  I’ll need a clear idea of your needs, including publishing rights, to establish your  quote.

An example of a page from ‘Border Lines’, Album, Music, Lyrics and Interpretation by Andrew Lobb, that I created in collaboration with Charlotte Lobb. We took numerous photos of Andrew and of different settings to create the album ,including its song book.

 

Whatever your portrait or head shot needs, please feel free to contact me.
