I try to keep this as simple as possible!
‘Shooting’ means the taking of the photographs where ever that may happen. ‘Editing’ means the part where I sit at the computer sorting everything out afterwards! Rather than charge one hourly rate for everything I charge less for ‘Editing’ as I am sat in the warm at my computer and it is far less ‘taxing’!

The 2 different prices indicate if I am photographing and retaining Copyright or photographing and releasing Copyright (Assigned Copyright Licence) more details of my Licence and Usages can be found on my Info page

Discounted rates are also available on half and full day bookings


  • £45 per hour

 – for a maximum of 4 hours total editing on standard jobs (where photographic shooting extends to more than 1 consecutive business working day then 4 hours editing per day is applicable by prior arrangement with the client)

For example: if a shoot take 5 hours and 5 or more hours editing is applicable the client only pays for 4 hours editing time. If a shoot takes 1 hour and the editing time is also 1 hour then the client only pays for 1 hour editing time.

Thru A Lupe  request that bookings be made with approx 5 business working days notice although Thru A Lupe will make every effort to accept bookings made within a shorter time frame where possible. Should a query/booking be made for an event happening on that same day then a ‘same day’ charge will be applicable (see above).
