Half Day (4 Hours) – £350
My standard hair salon photo shoot is a half day shoot. These shoots are aimed at providing you with images to promote your skills, enter competitions and use in marketing of the salon. We can also submit your images to various hair magazines to increase your profile. One image of each style from the shoot as part of the package up to 6 looks. Additional images are charged at £25 per edit. Deposit £75 at booking
Full Day (8 Hours) – £650
For longer shoots or salons with larger numbers of stylists who are involved. A full day allows for the looks to be spread out and free up space within the salon. There is nothing worse for the creative process than fighting for space and time. One image of each style is included up to 12 looks. Less than 6 looks with a full day, will include two edits of each look. Additional images are charged at £25 per edit. Deposit £150 at booking
Bi-Annual Seasonal Package – £650
As with any form of fashion, styles change over the course of the seasons. Hair is no different, whether its a change of colours or cut, there is a good chance your seasonal trends will be very different. With this package I offer you the chance to be able to show your customers what’s hot and exhibit your skills to inspire them.
This package includes two half day shoots, designed to give you a spring/summer and an Autumn/Winter shoot. They can be shot on the same day but we would suggest ideally at two strategic points in the year. For example Spring Summer to be shot between September-February, allowing you to have the images when you need them most. Autumn/Winter would be a shoot between April-August.
This will give you the chance to get your marketing sorted and in the right place ready for the next season. One of image of each style is included in the price up to 6 looks per shoot. Additional images are charged at £25 per edit. Deposit £150 at booking
Quarterly Seasonal Package – £1300
As above in the Bi-Annual Seasonal Package however this package breaks the seasons down even further, giving you 4 separate shoots a year allowing the opportunity to focus your marketing even more. The seasons are not forced to be the weather seasons, for example you may want one shoot to be a festive season shoot with hair focused towards christmas parties, and the holidays. We want to be as flexible as possible to help your business succeed.
The shoots are completed in advance of the season, ideally two seasons before or a minimum of the previous season. Deposit £300 at booking
Hair Competition Package – £145.00
This package is designed for an individual stylist to get images of one look created for a competition entry. Two Edits are included in the price as this is all that is required for most competitions. This session is a shorter shoot compared to the other packages, lasting generally about an hour.
Once again this can be shot in Salon, in studio or on location. It is entirely up to you. Deposit £50 at booking
We can create a custom package to suit your requirements, for example should you need more or fewer sessions than my existing package offer. We can also build a package to help a stylist create a personal portfolio with individual shoots. Simply contact us and let us know what you are looking for. We will do our best to accommodate.
What do we need from you
For each shoot we will ask you to provide a written brief and mood board of images you like providing references for the style of lighting, backgrounds, poses as well as hair cuts. We will ask you to provide images of the cuts/styles you will be creating (they can just be phone snaps.) Finally, we will need to know whether you need models, most salons have their own, however the difference between a good shot and a great shot is usually the model.
Payments can be accepted in a couple of ways. Cash or BACS upfront, or alternatively by Direct Debit. We appreciate that being a business cashflow can be tough to maintain, especially with large single outlays. Due to this very reason, for larger packages we are able to offer payment by direct debit by on a monthly or quarterly basis (depending on the package). Images will be with held until the required payments have been made for that session.
Frequently Asked Questions
For additional cost we can help source or provide the following:
Makeup Artists – Whilst the hair is clearly the focus of these shoots, a great makeup artist will make sure the model looks her very best and keep the focus where it needs to be. We have a variety of top quality makeup artists available to hire.
Models – We cannot stress enough that a photograph is only as good as the model in the shot. Many stylists want to use their clients, which is fine, however for a top image be prepared to invest in a model. We have many freelance models as well as model agencies that we can put you in touch with.
Stylist – The styling of a shoot is as important as the above, however it can encompass much more than just clothing. It could involve a set, accessories, and locations. We have a fantastic stylist available for hire who can add something really different to your images.
There is no set cost for the above, it depends on what is required.Mention what you would like and we will put you in touch with somebody suitable or even speak to them on your behalf.
What our clients say
“We hired Dave upon recommendation for a salon session day and team building and creative exercises. Dave helped prior to the shoot in sourcing models and make up artists and gave us an idea of what we should do for consistent images. During the day He gave direction to the models to create the best angles and poses for the style they had, and also put everyone at ease in a relaxed and professional environment. In the past we have paid the best part of £1000 for a team session day for poor quality images and poor interaction, so it was a relief and joy that we could get such superb photos used in our advertisements for such a reasonable price. he is a superb and skilled photographer and we can’t wait to book him for our next shoot!” – Enzorosario Hair Design
