Services From Sheppey Photography
Photography For Your Special Celebration
I am an experienced photographer with a flexible approach so I am available to provide you with an affordable photographic service that is tailored to your own needs and tastes. My niche is a reportage style where I capture people acting naturally. Of course more formal groupings and portraits can be arranged and I can provide studio lighting for traditional portrait settings.
Why book with me?
My fixed operating costs are extremely low and I pass these savings on to you. Hence my rates are extremely competitive, without sacrificing quality.
I can operate like a fly on the wall, you needn't know I'm there.
Where posed group shots are required, I encourage people just to be themselves: no awkward poses, no embarrassing direction, just a relaxed approach.
I put people at ease when they are in front of the camera, especially if they are shy or nervous.
I call on 50 years of experience to focus on your single day.
I include as many pre-wedding consultations as we need to get to know each other and to get a full understanding of what you want from me.
I don't ask for a big deposit to secure the booking or expect full payment before the event.

Chris was lovely. Unobtrusive discreet photography, and got along with everyone. I've given the stars based on that, as I haven't seen the photographs yet.

Chris was absolutely fantastic! He made everyone feel comfortable whilst taking the photos and the final pictures perfectly captured the day! Thank you so much - cheers Joe & Tammy

What services do you offer?
I offer a flexible solution tailored to your own photographic needs; I pride myself on giving you the photographs that you want. I can cover weddings, events such as anniversaries, birthdays, ceremonies and portrait work.
What does the wedding package include?
I tailor the photography to provide you with the service and the photographs that you want. Just tell me what you want covered and I will include it.
Do you cover more than one wedding a day?
No, I dedicate myself to just one to ensure I give it my priority and the attention your day deserves.
What style of photos do you take?
I describe my style as conservatively contemporary. I also have a reportage/documentary approach.
What kind of technology do you use?
I use digital cameras and state of the art post-processing software.
Do you offer any tool to display the photos online?
Yes, I provide an online gallery which will allow you to preview the photographs and mark your favourites.
What's the delivery time for photographic report?
Photos are delivered generally within a week. This is dependent on the complexity of the shoot, post-processing needed and number of images.
Do you send all the photos taken?
No, I will take several shots of the same pose and offer the best.
Do you work alone or do you have a team of professionals?
Although I can call on assistants I always personally supervise all aspects of the assignment.
In case of unforeseen circumstances, do you have a replacement photographer?
In the event that I cannot cover a commitment there are a number of fellow professional photographers that I can call on. In this case I will liaise between you and the replacement to ensure your expectations are still met but they will then take over the assignment.
Do you have the rights to publish the wedding photos?
Photos are given to the client with full rights to print and publish. I retain the right to use them for my own publicity.
Can you provide prints and albums?
Yes, prints and albums can be provided as you wish and with options to suit your budget. Alternatively, for a small fee I can assist you with the technical and aesthetic assistance to do it yourself. This can be a cheaper option and you will get the satisfaction of having done it.
Do you require full payment before the event?
No, I don't think it is fair to be paid for a service before I have provided it. The final payment is not due until after the event and after I have post-processed the pictures.
