“Couldn’t be more pleased with our whole experience from start to finish with Névé. After finding them online after many disappointing experiences with photo shoots we trialed our latest launch with Névé. The whole team are so efficient and quick to respond, and a delight to deal with. The caliber of their work is outstanding we genuinely couldn’t be happier. So much so that we have allocated all of our 2023 shoots with them :) Couldn’t recommend them highly enough!”

    & FAQ’s

    • Creative product photography is anything outside of standard white background product images or pack-shots for an e-commerce store. This could be anything from creative flat lays of your products, through to introducing hands, models or shooting outside of the studio.

    • Our current minimum order value as a studio is £200 + VAT. However, for creative product photography projects, our minimum order size is £1200 + VAT (plus expenses), as it simply isn’t possible to conduct a high-end creative project the expected standard in any less time, and it would be disservice to our clients to take less time to carry outr projects.

    • For creative product photography projects, we always provide an accurate quote before booking which includes all costs associated with the project. The only instances where a project cost will change after quoting is if the specification of the project changes (client requests additional images, a lower number of products are delivered to us, a higher level of service is required etc). We will always endeavour to communicate any changes to the project cost with the client as we move through the project, allowing an opportunity to adjust budgets or purchase orders.

      The quote we provide for e-commerce product photography should, if completed correctly, reflect the quote received through our pricing slider. The only addition to this will be the handling fee for sending products back to the client after the shoot, which covers boxing up and returning insured via DPD. We may apply a higher handling fee for large volume projects or very high value items that need special insurance.

      For creative product photography or any projects conducted outside of our studio, there are a few additional costs which could be associated with the project. We charge mileage at the standard rate of £0.45pm from our studio address (GU35 0FX), and we also charge travel time for any journeys over a 2 hour round trip from the same address. This travel time is tied with the hourly rate assigned for the project and charged at half the rate.

      We have a selection of props and surfaces in our studio already which we can and do use on multiple projects. However, any specific props, colours or perishable items (such as flowers/fruits etc) will need to be sourced specifically for the project and the cost forwarded to you. We won’t surprise you with a bill for these, instead allocating a proposed prop and material budget ahead of time for us to work within.

      We always look to include as many known costs or expenses during the quoting stage of a project. Any unknown costs, such as miscellaneous expenses or mileage where there isn’t a fixed location, will be outlined during the quoting stage but without a firm figure attached. Same again with props and materials required for a shoot in our studio. We can provide a rough estimate of the cost and then put the actual and final figure on the final invoice. Alternatively, we sometimes apply a fixed cost during the quoting stage and then we work within that.

    • Our standard turnaround time for projects is 12 working days from the shoot date. This figure is subject to the size of the project, as very large projects or a huge amount of high-end retouching will extend this turnaround time. Though we will be able to communicate an ETA on final images at the point of scheduling the shoot date.

      We’re generally booked up around 2/3 weeks in advance, though we often have postponements or gaps which open up scheduling opportunities for projects in the queue. Smaller projects are also easier to fit in at shorter notice as we can squeeze them into an existing shoot date for another client where there’s sufficient time.

      At the point of booking, we will provide you with a provisional shoot date based on the studio diary at that given moment. We then wait to formally confirm this shoot date until both the deposit is paid and the products have arrived at our studio. This is because we’ve had issues in the past with products being delayed in transit and then having to postpone shoot dates at the last minute, which obviously causes scheduling issues at our end with other clients!

    • Our standard payment terms for most projects are a 50% deposit at the point of booking, and the final balance due under standard NET30 terms upon completion. Any adjustments to the project (such as additional requirements or removed images), will be reflected in the final 50% payment.

      For very large projects, we bring the the deposit down to 25% to minimise the up-front cost. We don’t have a threshold for this change and is done on a case-by-case basis depending on the size of the project and any up-front costs required by us (such as booking models/locations etc).

      For very small projects (usually under £500 + VAT), we will likely invoice the full amount up-front at the point of booking. Again, this is done on a case-by-case basis.

    • Absolutely! We love having clients in the studio to help on projects. Saves a lot of back-and-forth and can really help having someone there who’s familiar with the product and how it needs to be portrayed. Same again for shoots on location, you’re more than welcome to attend and help wherever you wish.

      We also carry out most of our studio photography remotely, where clients send the products to us and our team sends over previews at the start of the shoot to make sure we’re going down the right lines. We request your cooperation and available time for this, but this would be communicated to you in the run up the shoot to make sure you’re available at a specific time on the shoot date for feedback.

    • Whilst we do have rows of warehouse racks for storing client products, we run out of space quickly when projects are delayed or we have multiple large projects on at once. To minimise this disruption, we send back products within a week of project completion.

      If you’re arranging your own collection, you must also arrange this immediately upon completion of the project. We reserve the right to charge a weekly warehousing cost for storing your items if they are left with us and are unable to return them, though this will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

      If you are looking to arrange a follow-up shoot and would like us to keep your products until then, let us know at the point of booking so we can safely store your items for then. We will not charge for holding your products in this instance, though we would appreciate clearly communicated timescales so we know how long we will be holding your products for.

    • Yes! We do a lot of video production here at Névé Studios and is all carried out by our in-house team. Video projects are all priced up much the same as photography projects outside of our studio, with an hourly rate assigned and calculated based on the time required for the project. Visit this page to see more of our video production work and feel free to reach out to discuss this further!

    • Yes! We use a combination of UK based modelling agencies for sourcing models for shoots depending on your requirements, with some agencies centred more on fashion models and others with more varied ranges of people, families and sometimes actors or influencers.

      The cost does vary between models and between agencies, so we don’t charge a fixed cost for models but instead on a project by project basis. There are also licensing fees to pay when using an agency if you wish to extend usage of the images and the models likeness past a specific length of time. This is known as gaining usage ‘in perpetuity’ and comes at an additional cost which we can negotiate with the agency and include in the project cost.

      We also do casting calls through Instagram for models if your requirements are less specific. This also means that we can liaise directly with the model instead of going through an agency, which often allows us to negotiate better usage terms or more favourable rates. Again, these costs will be included at the point of quoting. We do include an extra couple of hours pre-production time to cover model casting, though this generally works out a more cost-effective option despite the additional pre-production time.

    • Yes! We have a couple of options when providing hand models for shoots. If you simply need the most cost-effective option to have hands in shot, then a few of our creative team are happy to double as hand models during the shoot whilst assisting on the project. This is the most low cost option, although we aren’t able to guarantee who of our team can hand model and therefore not provide any choice in terms of skin tone, gender etc.

      Alternatively, we also work closely with a local modelling agency that allows us to hire professional hand models for shoots. This provides us the ability to choose the specific model and have exacting requirements, all whilst hiring a specialist hand model that’s able to bring your high-end imagery to life. Costs for hand models vary, but we will able to provide indicative costings at the point of quoting.

    • Yes! We have a number of preferred hair and make-up suppliers which we can arrange for your project. They’re not part of our internal team (though we might get to this point) but we work closely with just a small number of key suppliers and use them regularly. We will do all of the arranging and management, so you don’t need to worry about this side of things. Their cost will also be included in the overall project quote.

    • Absolutely, we work with a number of shooting location agencies to source suitable spaces for shooting. We include this time in the pre-production element of the project when quoting. As the pricing falls outside of our control, we will often provide an estimate of costs at the quoting stage, and then confirm full costs with you prior to commitment. We add all expenses to the final balance of the project, though we invoice a sufficient amount up-front upon booking to cover expenses such as locations and models, which we book directly as a studio.
