FAQs - 58º North Photography

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHAT IS YOUR PHOTOGRAPHY STYLE?
My photography style is natural and relaxed, and I tend to use a documentary/reportage style, with some informal posed group shots and couple portraits included. Wherever possible I use only available, natural light.

WHAT EQUIPMENT DO YOU USE?
I use professional Fujifilm digital photographic equipment. I use Fujifilm X-T1 cameras and a selection of prime and zoom lenses to cover indoor and outdoor reportage shots, group shots, portraits and detail shots, so you can be assured you will receive a variety of images of the highest quality.

HOW MANY PHOTOGRAPHS WILL WE RECEIVE FROM THE DAY?
The final number of images depends on many factors, but generally speaking you can expect up to 300 carefully selected images from an full day shoot.

WILL I GET COLOUR OR BLACK AND WHITE PHOTOGRAPHS?
I shoot in colour and then present a mixture of images in colour and black and white, depending on which works best. However, if you prefer all colour or all black and white, this can be accommodated.

ARE YOU INSURED?
I have public liability, professional indemnity and equipment insurance. You can request to see confirmation of this at anytime after your booking.

WHAT HAPPENS IF YOUR CAMERA BREAKS DOWN?
I have backup cameras and lenses, so am covered for equipment breakdown. Your photographs will be regularly backed up during the event, so loss of images is very unlikely.

WHAT HAPPENS IF IT RAINS ON THE DAY?
Not a problem - this is Scotland after all! Umbrellas and wellies make for some fun wedding shots and my camera and lenses are weather sealed, so can take a bit of rain. We can also do some outdoor shots in more sheltered locations or move inside if it's really bad!

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE FOR ME TO RECEIVE MY PHOTOGRAPHS AND ALBUMS?
I aim to have your final set of photographs edited, online and the USB drive posted out to you no later than 6 weeks after your wedding. If you purchase an album up front, the first draft design will also be ready then. If you decide to buy an album after your wedding, the first draft design will be ready to view 4 weeks after payment has been received. Once the design has been finalised turn around time for album delivery is 4-6 weeks.

ARE THE PHOTOGRAPHS MINE TO KEEP, PRINT AND SHARE?
The final set of photographs on your USB drive are the edited high resolution digital files with a licence to make copies and prints among your family and friends. You, and your family and friends, can also order prints and other items from your online gallery. Copyright ownership of the photographs remains with 58º North Photography.

HOW DO WE MAKE A BOOKING AND SECURE OUR DATE?
You can make an enquiry by filling in my enquiry form, I'll get back to you as soon as possible. We'll then either meet up, or discuss by phone/email, to make sure all your questions are answered and you're happy to go ahead, before I send you an online contract.
