What do we pay if the photo shoot is free?
After your free photo shoot - your edited and designed images are put on line in your own photo gallery - they will be there for at least three months, you are welcome to share the album with family and friends (with the links provided) and there will be a variety of options to either download high print quality images, specific social media and web images or purchase prints, high quality artwork and canvas which will be dispatched and delivered by our high quality professional photo lab.
Your shoot is free, so you only pay for the images you choose to purchase in the format that would suit you the most. The cost includes not only the print or image file (depending what you choose) but photography services and design fees.
Our cheapest print is just £7!
So for example:
On the front page of your gallery there may be an option to purchase a digital download of the gallery - this will include all the images in the gallery.
On each individual print, there is a buy button, here you can choose to purchase the individual image either as a digital download or as a print.
Digital Downloads are set with either a private or commercial usage license in two different sizes.
Digital Downloads should arrive with you as soon as payment is received.
If you can not see an option to download a digital gallery, please try accessing the site through a computer this is because gallery downloads are not available to purchase from a mobile device as a zip file is sent and most mobile devices cannot handle or open a zip file.
For more details and to ensure you purchase the correct license - please read more here: Digital sizes and Licensing.
If you would like to print your images - you can choose what size you would like the image to be - new albums (as of 1st December 2015) will contain mainly images of a 4:5 ratio, which means they print great at 4x5, 8x10 and 16x20 although other sizes maybe included. Once you have chosen the size you require please check the crop before check out.... if the size your require does not work for the images you have selected, then please get in touch and we can amend the image for you.
The prints and any other goods you order will come direct to you, from our professional print lab based in Scotland, who will ensure they your receive high quality professional images.Postage will be added to your album purchases and this is determined at check out depending on the size of products you order.
If you have completed your order, you can ask for the "buy" option to be turned off your album at any time, however you can also share the album with friends and family - they may wish to order too.
Sharing on Social media
Just click the share button and choose where you share your photos ... the images will be watermarked unless you choose to purchase downloads and up load them to your own site. Sharing photos by coping them - is against the law and a breach of copyright.
I don't want anyone to see my images.
If you would prefer your images to be stored in a private password gallery - please discuss this at the time of your shoot, and for a small administration charge of £20 we can arrange that for you.
Is every shoot free?
Wedding and Special Event Photography does not include a free photographer - but we have a great package that you can tailor to suit your budget. Our attendance fee starts at just £200 and includes the photographer for the event, a public online gallery of images (for 3 months) which you can share with friends and family, a unique printed photographic journal and a voucher off your first order from your online gallery.
So how am I still in business?
Every print you purchase includes not only the material cost of printing the image by our professional printer but a creative fee. We try and include a variety of images - and the choice is yours.
Every download you purchase includes the creative fee and the license required for usage either commercially or personally and then you are can save the file, print it, share it or view it in a digital frame.
Some photographers charge a sitting fee or location time - and for that you get 1-2 hours with the photographer and a few edited images for you to keep - with the option to buy more... if you do not like any of the images then you have still paid out around £100 ... with RenoufDesign you only pay for the images you want and that means I can create the images that I want to create and you can decide whether they are the right images for you ... so for you there is no initial outlay ... and an online gallery to view for a minimum of three months!
