Deposits for Portrait Shoots
We really didn’t want to do this but we are having to start taking £10 non-returnable deposits for portrait shoots from the start of the New Year. Similarly, any Gift Vouchers that are booked need to be paid for in full before they are made up.
This is simply because over the last few months we’ve had shoots being cancelled last minute, people not showing up (not even calling to cancel) and people who have asked for Gift Vouchers not picking them up from the studio after we have called and emailed to say they are ready.
We value each and every customer and want to make sure you feel valued, having the best experience possible. We think this is one of the best ways to help provide this.
Our day started at 4am, up showered and dressed with the all important coffee in hand ready to meet our friends, Ben and Katie, for a 6am Check-in at Bristol Airport. With our e-tickets and passports in hand it all got very real when we sailed through check-in (I really like flying with only hand luggage!) and the excitement of going to a winter wonderland to see Santa in his actual home in Lapland really started to kick in! We went through the ever necessary security checks – which really is a more of a rigmarole for photographers than the average traveler, having to take out the cameras, lenses and iPad (on which I’m writing this blog on the flight home with everyone else on the plane asleep). Even with all the kit out the bag I always seem to set the scanners off 9 times out of 10 (I will never forget my public strip search in Dubai International when we flew back from a wedding in Malaysia…all shades of dignity left, embarrassed on the floor).
Just in case you didn’t know, WE LOVE CHRISTMAS!
