  2. Travel outside of London will incur an additional charge starting at £50.

  3. Some locations require a rental fee. Depending on where you want your shoot location to be, there may be a charge. We will always do everything we can to secure locations for free or at the lowest possible cost - but places such as cafes, bar, pubs, offices may incur additional costs.
