Frequently asked Q&A's


Q. Do you have a minimum studio time allocation?

A. Cecil Paul Studios fully understands that a quality set of images are not captured in a 40 minute session like some of our competitors. We allocate a minimum of 2 hours for any portrait session allowing you to relax, get comfortable in front of the camera and capture quality images you will love.


Q. Studio sessions. What do you charge?

A. Cecil Paul Studios charges nothing £0 for a studio portrait sitting with no hard sell tactics or obligation to buy any image. Location shoots do incur a travel cost depending on location and travel time of the photographer.

A. Yes you can buy a copyright free CD of your images. Prices start from £125 and vary on the amount of images included.

Q. What accreditation do you hold to shoot children at competitions?

A. There is no accreditation required by law to shoot such events though organisers can request phones, tablets and cameras are not used by spectators and competitors to minimise potential risk. With this in mind all adults at Cecil Paul Studios are certified to enhanced level with the Disclosure & Barring Service (CRB) for your assurance.
