We appreciate that speed is an important factor with Press & PR photography. As standard Paul will deliver high-resolution photographs available via digital download within 48 hours. If you require the photographs more urgently 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.
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.
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.
Paul has rapid access to major motorway networks and allowing him to quickly attend press events / newsworthy stories at a moments notice. The majority of our work is located within 100 miles radius, however we frequently travel much further for jobs though and so long as travel is covered, we are happy to do so.
If your press & PR 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.
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. This duplication of equipment means that should anything break or malfunction, he can easily swap out that piece of equipment and continue to photograph without fuss or bother.
Yes, we have full Public Liability and Professional Indemnity insurance to the value of £5million.
