Commissioned Portraits FAQ’s
What is the structure of a Commissioned Portrait Session?
There isn’t one. Individual photography coaching can be about any subject or person you wish, however we would request that you submit details of the areas you would like to cover beforehand so we can bring any relevant equipment necessary.
How can I choose / increase the number of hours I want?
After clicking the ‘Buy Now’ button you will be taken to the Paypal checkout area where you can type in the quantity of hours you would like.
Can I pay in Euros, Dollars or a different currency?
Yes. Provided it is accepted by Paypal that should be fine. All Paypal currency conversions are done live so that the rate always the date when you made your purchase.
Do I have to have a Paypal account to buy courses / training?
No, you don’t. In the checkout area, underneath the Paypal login there is a link entitled “Pay with Debit or Credit card”. Simply click this link and you will be able to pay using the normal section of commonly available cards (i.e. VISA, Delta, Electron, MasterCard, Eurocard, American Express, Discover and Maestro cards).

8 hours. The start time is flexible as is when we pause for lunch.
What is the maximum ‘per hour’ bookable session time?

If you would like a longer session than normal or split the amount up over several days please contact us here to check availability.

What about adverse weather conditions / cancellations?
Generally speaking, where it is a practical I try to shoot in all weathers so rain and bad weather won’t necessarily affect your ability to take a great photograph. In addition to this we keep in contact with clients up until the day of shoot in case there are any exceptional changes that we feel might compromise your shoot experience. In the event of a postponement we will move your shoot to the next mutually convenient date or offer you a full refund as per our refund policy.
How do I pay for a lesson?
All lessons need to be paid for in advance and online using a credit or debit card on the courses page here.
Is there anything I should bring?
Warm clothing or layers. Even on a sunny day the wind chill can steal your warmth should the sun dip behind the clouds. Sensible footwear is a must, i.e. trainers, walking shoes anything that covers or supports the ankles. If you have any food intolerances or allergies please bring appropriate light snacks and enough water.
