FAQ
Some answers to commonly asked questions. If you have a question not answered here or want any more information, please feel free to email us.

Can I book one session for both me and my colleague/partner?
Yes but we charge per person rather than per session so make sure that you book for the correct number of people.

If you take 30 photos of me during the shoot, can I have all of them to do what I want with?
No, there are always shots with eyes closed and other issues – we do not show / deliver images like this. It is good to choose a few favourites (see below) which you feel, best present you. These will be perfectly retouched and delivered to you in the correct format for printing and posting online.

I want a video for my web site also, is this possible?
Yes, have a look here, we have great video capabilities at Alex Jeffries Photography Group, when you contact us, ask about making a short video for you too.

Is there a maximum number of photographs that I can select for retouching?
Maximum 10 images.

How long does the shoot take?
Most people like to be photographed for between 30-60 minutes. Your session can last up to a maximum of one hour. In our experience, this is more time than you’ll either want or need in order to get great profile shots.

Do you come to me?
Yes, within Dubai. Outside of Dubai, we have a 350 Dhs charge. Or, you can come to our studio (see above).

What should I wear for my portrait session?
If you have white or light skin, wearing black is a good idea for a moody or dramatic look as it leads the viewer’s attention right to the face. It also can help make some people look slimmer. Otherwise a plain colour is recommended, either significantly lighter or darker than your skin tone and not too brightly coloured. Keep it simple and avoid patterns. Remember that you want people to concentrate on your face. We have a PDF style guide, we can email through, once your booking is confirmed.

Can you give me any ideas to help me decide a style of photo?
Sure. You might prefer darker and enigmatic, or bright and airy. Try googling “high key” and “low key” to get an idea of the difference. Think about whether you want to appear smart and professional or casual and informal.
