Frequently Asked Questions

  • Will I own the copyright to the images?

    Photographers along with most other creatives, retain the copyright to their work. All this means for the client is that they can't sell or give away the images for use by third parties.

  • What can I use the images for?

    The majority of our shoots are for Promotion. Acceptable uses of the images for a Promotional fee are Websites, Social Media, Press Releases and Editorial Articles. If we agree a rate for Promotion and then the images get used for an Advertising Poster then that wouldn’t be acceptable.

  • Who can use the images?

    The images are licensed for use by the Client and Architect or Designer only. (Two licenses are included) If additional parties, like suppliers or contractors want to use the images to promote themselves and therefore gain more business then we will charge them an additional fee for the whole set or £50 per image.

  • Can I purchase the copyright?

    It's very rare that a client needs to purchase the copyright. Full copyright usage and ownership of the images can be purchased for double the Advertising rate. The copyright owner will be able to use, sell and distribute the images exclusively. Exclusivity without copyright ownership can be purchased for double the Promotional rate.

  • Do you offer a Drone Service?

    We work with a Civil Aviation Authority approved Drone pilot so that we can capture buildings within city centres with permission from the Metropolitan Police. The fee for the service is the same as the above photography rates.

  • What’s included in the Fee?

    If within London, our fees (except advertising) are all inclusive of expenses for travel, sustenance, post production and admin. Our clients have the assurance of the final invoice sum with no surprises. If Ed has to travel outside of London then travel costs are added. These are at cost or specified above.

  • How are your fees calculated?

    Our fees are calculated by the total number of hours it takes to produce a shoot. This includes the time for the pre-production, correspondence, travel arrangements, local travel, shoot, processing, retouching and post shoot admin. Local expenses for travel and sustenance are then added to the fee so it becomes all inclusive. We have different hourly rates for the types of fee

  • Will you retouch the images?

    We retouch all the images immaculately but are happy to discuss anything else you require. Removing unwanted items, colour correction, cropping and resizing are all included within the fee. Specialist retouching whereby items need to be added to an image will be charged separately according to the complexity.

  • What do I have to prepare for the shoot?

    We want to get as many shots for you as possible so it's important that the location is prepared before we arrive. Please check that there are no stock deliveries that day, all lights are working, the windows and floors are clean and where relevant, all furniture is aligned and bedsheets are ironed (with starch if necessary).

  • Can you help getting our work published?

    We have a reputation for professionalism, competence and creativity, delivering images that capture the visions of architects and designers. We produce a high number of immaculately retouched images to best promote the project. Great pictures increase the projects potential for publication. Our long established links with the design media ensures our clients work has the best chance of being seen by both prospective clients and contemporaries.

  • Referrals

    Most of our work comes from referrals. If you refer someone to us and it leads to a commission then we'll happily send you a present. The presents get bigger according to the size of the commission.
