Frequently Asked Questions
Q. What should I bring with me?
A. We advise that you bring in a pair of jeans, a white tank top, t-shirts, braces, white and black boxers (Beckham and Tom Daley style!), trousers, a white shirt, a tie & bow tie, a suit, sports gear, hats, smart shoes, trainers and anything that makes you feel good!
We also suggest bringing in items to personalise your shoot, so if you (or a partner) have any hobbies or interests, why not bring something related to this e.g. sporting tops or equipment, musical instruments, books or vinyls/cds.
Creased clothes are not the best look so if you have the time, please give your clothes a quick iron prior to your shoot.
You can also bring accessories that are personal to you, as well as anything else you may find in your cupboard….if you’re considering it, bring it! And please remember, you are going to be in a darkly-lit studio, don’t be afraid to add a little colour to your selection!
Q. What happens when I arrive for my shoot?
A. You will receive a warm welcome and be shown to our chill-out room where you will be asked to fill in a few details while you relax. You will then be taken into the studio ready for your photoshoot.
Q. What happens in my shoot?
A. Your photographer will discuss your shoot with you and go through everything you have bought in, putting together different styles for each pose. You will then be directed into poses depending on the style of shoot and the type of images you are looking to achieve.

A. We only photograph one person per day and each session lasts half a day, so please allow anything from four to five hours from beginning to end.
Q. When and how can I see my photos?
