Event Photography FAQ's

How Quickly Will We Recieve The Images?

When you run an event you want to be able to show the world what happened at it as quickly as possible afterwards, be it through social media, magazines, newspapers or other media. As standard Paul will deliver high-resolution photographs available via digital download within 48 hours of shooting an event. If you require the photographs a little more urgently after the event we are able to offer a same day or next day service too, please do let us know your requirements when booking and we’ll be happy to help.

How Do We Recieve The Photographs?

To ensure you receive your photos quickly we deliver all photographs via digital download unless requested otherwise at the time of booking. You’ll receive an email with a link which you simply need to click and your images will download automatically.

Do You Edit The Photographs?

We are firm believers that you get good images out of the camera and great images out of post-processing afterwards. Each and every image we send will have been professionally edited.

How Big Are The Photos & In What Format Will I Recieve Them?

Unless requested otherwise we send all images in 300DPI .jpg format. The longest edge will be 3000 pixels which are large enough for most uses. The professional Canon cameras we shoot with deliver a final image size of 6000 pixels on the longest edge, let us know if you need these and we can arrange for you to receive them.

What Locations Do You Work?

We frequently travel to events throughout the UK and so long as travel is covered, we are happy to do so. Travel companies often fly us around the world to cover their events, so if you are interested in hiring us for an event further afield just get in contact.

Do You Charge Travel Expenses?

If your event is within 70 miles of us then no, this is included within the price. If it is further than 70 miles then a small fee will be charged to cover our costs.

What Precautions Do You Take For Things Going Wrong?

Paul’s photography gear includes 2 professional-grade Canon DSLR cameras and a range of zoom and wide-angle lenses along with a host of external lighting options and backup equipment ensuring he is ready for any situation which arises.

Why is this important? Well, what if something goes wrong? Technology is great when it works, but as a professional event photographer Paul knows that should a camera break, a memory card fail or a battery pack run out then the event will still go on and if your photographer isn’t prepared for such an occurrence, your going to miss out on a lot of precious memories. It’s, for this reason, Paul carries backups of each and every piece of equipment he uses ensuring there is no downtime at an event and he is always ready to shoot.

Do You Have Insurance?

Yes, we have full Public Liability and Professional Indemnity insurance to the value of £5million.

Are You DBS Checked?

Paul is DBS checked and is happy to share a copy of his DBS certificate with any client, no matter whether they are a business, charity, organisation or individual.

  • "We were utterly astounded with the quality of Paul's work with the conditions on the day being atrocious. Torrential rain-pour, lightening and thunderstorms and he just carried on shooting regardless, capturing all of the key moments from the event. I couldn't recommend him highly enough and we will certainly use him again in the future when we need a photographer."
