2nd Shooter

2nd Shooter Hire – From £150.00

Need assistance at a Wedding ? Need assistance on an important shoot ? Need advice or a 2nd opinion on the day ? I can help. With flat fees, a relaxed attitude and over 10 years of demonstrable experience in studio / Wedding / Stock and commercial photography I am a safe pair of hands. I am qualified as Associate (ASWPP) by the SWPP in Weddings, Only believe in quality equipment which is demonstrated by been registered as NPU (Nikon Professional User), and am confident and knowledgable in Wedding Photography / Portrait Photography / Boudoir Photography / Photobooth Assembly, Setup & Operation

If your reading this, you obviously understand photography and want details, this is always a big one for me. Although good equipment doesn’t make a good photographer, Good equipment enables someone who understands Photography to do more, be more efficient and produce shots not otherwise possible. Its the harsh reality that a Canon 5d mark 3 allows the photographer to achieve more than a Canon 600D. Or a Nikon D810 over a Nikon D3300.

My equipment compromises of Nikon. I typically run with a combination of D4S & D800 or D810 & D750 and a multitude of prime & zoom lenses. For Weddings my usual equipment is D800/810/750 with Nikkor F2.8 70-200 VR2 & Nikkor 24-70 F2.8 all yearly serviced and maintained. For weddings I usually have 2 cameras in operation. (24/70 on one, 70/200 on the other for quick reaction).

Prices and Options

Again I am going to work on the assumption you understand Photography, post production and are happy to deal with the client in the run up to the event and deal with the post production work afterwards. So the prices are based simply for on the day shooting, and on the day RAW transfer. I will supply my own equipment, I can supply my own travel, I Have full insurance and will provide a receipt on the day for tax purposes.

Part Day – Up to 4 Hours Shooting plus 1 hour allocated for travel (5 hours in total) £150

Full Day – Up to 9 Hours Shooting Plus 1 hour allocated for travel (10 Hours in Total) £199

The above prices are for 2nd shooter work, if your uncomfortable acting as the lead photographer I am more than happy to assist in this, although additional fees will be included as I would have to contact the client and discuss requirements directly with them. I will not act as main photographer where I have not had prior contact with the client.

I’ve run hundreds of weddings as the main Photographer, Assisted as the 2nd shooter at hundreds of weddings as well. Photographed hundreds of portrait shoots & events during my business life.  With Weddings I give the wedding my all for the period I am required. I am energetic and enthusiastic. If I need to lay down to get a shot I WILL, If I need to climb in a bush I WILL.
