Portrait Photography

Ed Hawkins - Classical Bass/Baritone Opera Singer - http://www.edhawkinsmusic.com/

A portrait session gives us the chance to hang out together and get some great photos of you, your family or friends. My photo shoots are relaxed, informal and whole lot of fun. They last approximately one hour and are great for individuals, couples, families & friends.

Based in West Sussex on the beautiful south coast of England, we have some absolutely stunning locations nearby for that perfect family photograph. A walk in the woods, ice creams at the beach or maybe another location that is special to you.

I prefer to use natural light in my photography, as this produces the most flattering photos and smooths out all the crinkles and shadows (not that I'm suggesting that you have crinkles of course....or shadows for that matter..).

If you’re looking for a more contemporary studio portrait, I have a fully mobile studio with a large white backdrop and professional studio lighting. I rent a local venue in Rustington for studio shoots.

For children's portraits, I have a few costumes that I can bring along if you wish. For studio portraits, feel free to bring along different outfits as changing facilities are available at the venue.

Once we have taken the shots that you like, I'll process the photos before uploading them to your private photo gallery on my website. From your gallery you'll be able to see your finished photos and order prints or digital downloads. You can also share your photos from your gallery on social networking sites like Facebook or Twitter.

Session Prices

For each portrait session, I charge a session fee that covers my time during your photo shoot and the time required for editing and selecting the best shots afterwards. For studio photo shoots, I hire a local venue in Rustington for your session and therefore charge a small additional cost.

My current portrait session prices are as follows:
Session Fee: £100
Studio Surcharge: £40

 

 

 

Prints

Once your final photos have been uploaded to your gallery, you have the option to purchase prints. I use a hand-picked professional photographic printing company, who offer a very high standard of printing. You can purchase a large variety of prints of your images (including framed prints and canvasses) and I can also undertake large photo collages to combine multiple photos into a single framed print.

An example of the prices of my most popular prints are as follows:
6" x 4" Print: £5
9" x 6" Print: £8
12" x 8" Print: £12

 

 

 

 

Print Packages

I also offer a range of Print Packages with combinations of the above print sizes. Print Packages are a great way to purchase multiple prints at a significantly discounted price.

My Print Packages are currently priced as follows:

Package 12" x 8" 9" x 6" 6" x 4" Price Saving

Digital Downloads

If you'd prefer digital copies of your photos instead of prints, you can download either individual images or all of the finished images from your photo shoot from within your gallery. For each image that is downloaded, a 'Royalty-Free' image license applies, which allows you to print the image as many times as you wish for personal use, email the image to your friends and family or post the image on Social Networking websites, such as Facebook or Twitter.

Digital Downloads of your images are priced as follows:

Individual digital image: £10
DVD containing all digital photo shoot images: £100
