your questions answered
What’s your turnaround time?
It takes me about a week from your photoshoot date to get photos back to you edited and ready to go! However, if you needed the images super soon, I can prioritise the shoot and get them to you quicker. In this case, I will need to be aware of your deadline.
How can I book a photoshoot?
Simply get in touch with me via email and we can get you booked in! If you have any questions before you book, I’m always happy to help so don’t hesitate to get in touch.
How do I receive the photos?
All photographs will be sent to your email via a secure link that will follow you onto your individual shoot folder – you’ll receive them as high res jpegs ready for you to download and use.
How much do I charge?
I offer a range of photography services so to get a specific price for your photoshoot please get in touch and tell me a little bit about what you’re looking for. My rate includes photographing, editing, and styling.
Do I pay for postage of products to you?
All postage costs are to be covered by the client for postage to me and back to you. This postage cost back is added onto the photoshoot invoice. Did you know I post all parcels back to clients first class signed for, and often with extra guarantee? This means that those pesky parcels can’t go missing when being returned to you!
Who owns the copyright?
I retain copyright to all images, as I produced the work, however the images are owned by you and you can use them wherever you’d like. All I ask is that you consider crediting when you use any photos from your photoshoot. This is not essential but as a freelance photographer, and small business, this really makes a huge difference to my work!
How do I credit you when sharing photos?
Where possible please use the following credits when using my photographs:
In print credit Girl Behind The Lens
Link to www.girlbehindthelens.co.uk if sharing on a website
Please tag @girl_behindthelens if sharing on Instagram
How many photographs will you provide?
There is no set number of photographs provided, but instead I try to take as many as possible. The number of shots can vary from shoot to shoot but you will be provided with plenty of photos to choose from! For a closer estimate for your project, please get in touch.
Can I send my products to you?
Yes, definitely! No matter where you are based, you can send your products to my studio to be photographed.
Are there any products you don’t work with?
At the moment I don’t work with large pieces of furniture as I don’t have a huge studio space available, however I can come to your site for this type of product, but extra travel costs will apply.
How many months ahead of Christmas do you take bookings?
As many months ahead as you wish! Christmas season seems to start earlier each year and for social media and marketing materials to be ready in time for that October push, I’d recommend leaving it no later than the start of September!
Could you photograph my studio space/shop?
Yes of course! I love meeting people in person and capturing their gorgeous work space and location! Please note extra travel costs will apply. Get in touch and we can discuss the details.
Do I need to provide props?
I have a variety of props and backgrounds at the studio, but I always encourage my clients to take a look around their workspace to see if they have any props that could work too. It’s a great way of adding that personal touch to your photographs!
Do you have a cancellation policy?
Yes I do! When someone books a session with Girl Behind The Lens, with effect from March 2022, they are required to pay a £80 deposit to reserve the spot. Any remaining payment becomes due once the photographs are delivered.
Any cancellation made more than 14 days prior to the session will be fully refundable. However, cancellations made within 14 days of the session, and not rescheduled, will forfeit the £80 deposit. Only one rescheduling against a cancellation is allowed. Further cancellations will forfeit the deposit.
This same policy applies when you book a shoot, and your products are not delivered to the studio by the date of the shoot, as this is effectively a cancellation. In this event your shoot will be forfeited and the £80 deposit will not be refundable.
I may have missed something! If there is something you wish to ask that I have not yet covered, please get in touch via email and I will do my best to answer your questions!
