Brand Photography FAQs
ISKA BIRNIE PHOTOGRAPHY
I am based in Aberdeen but work with clients just about anywhere! I love traveling and regularly go all over so never think you are too far away.
I hear this a lot! And believe me, I’m not a bit fan either. Don’t worry though, I will guide you through the whole process and I promise having your photo taken isn’t that bad at all, you might even end up enjoying your photo session!
To book just get in touch and if you like what I offer, I will send you a booking form and contract. I ask for half of the session fee on booking and the remaining half the week before your photo session.
It’s all in the planning! After you book your brand photo session, I will send you my brand clarity questionnaire to get a better understanding of your brand and what’s important to you. It helps us dive deeper into your brand story and really get to the core of it.
We also discuss everything else around your brand, for example, your brand colours, the perfect location/s for your shoot, outfits, props, and any additional team or family members you’d like to include.
I can do even better than that, I can arrange a hair and make-up artist for you. But if you prefer, I can also recommend a few names for you to get in touch with yourself.
Unfortunately, the weather is one variant that we can’t control, but we can plan for it as good as we can.
For an outdoor shoot, we would reschedule if it is an awful day. In the run-up to your photo session, we will keep in touch and keep an eye on the weather, should it look questionable we’ll make a decision together if we want to go ahead or reschedule.
Payment in full is due before your shoot. 50% on booking the session and 50% a week before your photo session.
You can pay by bank transfer or card.
I aim to deliver photos within 2 weeks of your photo shoot. In peak times that can be slightly longer and in quiet times shorter. If there is a deadline in play, I will do my utmost best to deliver before then. Please let me know of any deadlines before the shoot.
This depends on the package you have chosen.
My 1-hrs package includes 25 images and my 3-hrs package 70+ images.
Copyright remains with me as the author of the images, but you have a commercial usage licence to use your photos for your business. This just means you can’t re-sell the images commercially or modify them.
Yes absolutely. I back them up as soon as I get home after the shoot, both physical and to the cloud.
Yes, I am fully insured with both public liability and public indemnity insurance.
