“My daughter and I had our photo experience 2 weeks ago. Wendy, the photographer was absolutely brilliant with my little girl (who can be quite shy with strangers) and we had a lovely afternoon! Today we returned to see out pictures and they were absolutely amazing! Mike was a lovely guy who explained everything to us and give us his own opinion when we were struggling to decide! From start to finish the communication with Hazel and the professionalism from all the team has been fabulous and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this company!”

We were made to feel so welcome and relaxed during the shoot and I can honestly say there wasn’t a bad shot taken! We had lots of laughs and the sessoin which went so fast. I would highly recommend anyone to give it a try :)”

Frequently Asked Questions

What’s involved in a Makeover Photoshoot?

Well it’s something extra than a normal photoshoot. We have a Professional Makeup artist who will professionally style your makeup for you, bring out your best features so that you feel and look your best. She will also style your hair and again bring out your best features. After which you will enjoy a fun photoshoot in our purpose build studio.

How long does a makeover photoshoot last?

Approx 2 hours (3 for double sessions). An hour having your hair and makeup done and an hour for the photoshoot.

Can I bring other family members?

There are different experiences available, all are based on who is having hair and makeup done. If you want to have additional members for the photoshoot part of your experience you can, but you will need to let us know beforehand. They would need to come just for the photoshoot part of the experience (approx an hour after you) as there is no waiting area for them. (only applies to vouchers purchased from Mike Turner Photography. It doesn’t include 3rd party experience vouchers)

Do I get anything to take away with me?

All our experiences come with either one image or two (for double sessions only) included as a memento of your Makeover Photoshoot experience.

Can I buy additional images?

Yes you can buy additional prints, canvases, frames, images on disc, and folios.

Am I obliged to buy more?

Never. We price our Makeover Photoshoots at a price point that we don’t need to rely on upselling. Many other studios sometimes price at a loss and then hard sell customers into buying more, which can often spoil the experience for the participant. We never do this – as a matter of policy.

How much are these experiences worth really?

Well if you price them separately you would pay £100 for Hair and Makeup styling and photoshoot session, then a 10×8 print if purchased from the studio would be £70 from our price list, so we believe the true value should be £170 for a single session, twice as much for a double.

If the value is £170 for a single session, why are you only currently charging £49?

We think that £49 is a much more attractive price point for buying as gift vouchers, and getting more people coming to the studio helps us run our makeover days more efficiently. Also we work on returning visitors and word of mouth and have many customers coming to have a session and then buying an experience for friends or family. We have also found that £49 is a very competitive price in the marketplace.

Do you have female photographers?

Yes we do. Wendy photographs most of our Makeover Photoshoots so it’s a very girlie photo experience.

Do I view the photos on the same day as the Experience?

No we arrange a separate private viewing session for you, where you can bring other family members. The viewing is often scheduled within a week or two of the photo session depending on your availability and studio availability. We also feel that spending a further hour at the studio on top of the two hours already spent, is a little too long.

Do I need to bring anything with me on the day?

All makeup is included in the experience  packages, so you don’t need to bring your own.

You can bring your own false eyelashes if you like but if you do, please also bring your own glue. The makeup artist will put them on for you on the day. Alternatively you can purchase a pair from the makeup artist on the day from £5-£10 depending on brand.

If there are any props, such as hats or musical instruments you would like to have photos taken with, feel free to bring these along.

Bring a minimum of 3 outfit changes for the shoot. As a guide, something casual, something dressy and something in-between is a good idea. The main thing is you feel comfortable and would like to be photographed wearing them. For double sessions try to co ordinate styles and colours so that they go together in the photos.

If I buy a gift voucher, do they have an expiry date?

Vouchers expire 10 months from the purchase date. This is designed to ensure vouchers are actually used and not forgotten about.
