How it Works

Martin in StudioProfessional Lighting

We use professional studio lighting to ensure that you look your best in the resulting images. Lighting is used even on location, to shape and model the light, resulting in top class imagery that you'll treasure.

Location Options

Your Home

If you have a large house, it may be possible to set up our lighting and capture you and your family in your most natural environment. Your areas to shoot in need to be at least 4m x 4m to enable us to set up our lights. If you don't have this space or more, let's go elsewhere.

Parks

Parks can be great for capturing your kids playing together, or you playing with your kids in a natural open space, or in woods etc. Let us know if you have a park in mind, and we'll check to see if we can get permission to shoot there.

Studios

The word studio probably conjures up visions of the high street studio, with a false fireplace backdrop, but how about hiring a professional studio and you and your family be the models?

The studios we use are professional rental studios, with room for our lighting, and natural environments, like living rooms and kitchens. We can also use some outdoor studios, where you'll look like you are with your family in Europe or the US.

These rental studios do add extra cost, but they are well worth it. As most studios have a minimum rental of four hours, if you have a friend who would also like their portraits made, we can book you in together, to keep the cost for each family down. Either way, we'll explain the costs ahead of time, to avoid any surprises.

Fine Art Print Products

Martin takes great pride in creating top quality archival fine art prints. All of our Fine Art Prints, Folios and Canvas Wraps are created personally by Martin, and subject to our strictest quality checks. We assure you that you will love your prints.

Fine Art Prints

Whether you chose a matte or gloss finish, your Fine Art Prints will be created using only the finest Hahnemuhle or Breathing Color museum quality archival papers and Canon pigment inks for prints that will last hundreds of years, ensuring that they will be enjoyed not only by you, but for generations of your family to come.

Prints will generally be delivered loose (though packaged for protection) for you to have framed yourself, though we also have a matte mounting board option for A4 sized prints, as seen here. We will give you a catalog of frames from a reputable manufacturer when we meet, and if you'd prefer to choose a frame from that catalog, we can order it and frame your prints for you, before dispatch. If you'd like to take advantage of this service, just let us know.

If you intend to have your prints framed yourself, even A4 prints, let us provide them to you loose, as mounting boards are a final product, and the prints cannot be easily removed without damage. For size options and prices, see the print price list.

Fine Art Prints in Matte Boards

Canvas Gallery Wraps

Canvas gallery wraps are one of the most stylish ways to display prints on your wall. We use Breathing Color Lyve Canvas, coated with their Timeless matte laminate to prevent cracking and make your gallery wraps incredibly durable. They are so durable, that should they collect dust or become soiled, you can just wipe them off with a damp cloth, and they'll be fine.

Family Portrait Gallery Wrap

Canvas Gallery Wraps can be made in a number of sizes. For size options and prices, see the print price list.

Fine Art Folio

8 or 10 images of your choice will be printed at 8.5x11" and placed into a custom archival folio. The folio is the ideal format for showing your prints to friends and family. As the prints are lose, you can pass them around and even display or frame individual prints in rotation.

Portrait Folio

Fine Art Folios also contain a contact sheet for easy ordering of additional prints, and a personalized message, if requested. You decide the text, and we print it on the same fine art paper as the rest of your folio prints. See the print price list for details.

Other Considerations and Fees

Need Full Sized Digital Photos

When you pay for a shoot with us, you are buying top quality photography by Martin Bailey, and Fine Art prints, created on the best archival papers or canvas available. To enable us to totally control the quality of your prints, you will normally not be provided with full resolution photographs from your shoot.

If you require full resolution images, for example, for use in a professional modelling portfolio, a magazine or CD cover etc. please contact us for a commercial shoot price quote.

Additional Subjects

If you have a larger family or group than the maximum number assigned to each plan, you can add additional subjects for ¥5,000 per session. Print prices are unchanged, but as subject numbers increase, we generally need more equipment and sometimes take a little more time to complete the shoot.

Pets

Pets count as one group member. For example, if you already have four people in your group, and you want to add your dog, you'll need to pay an additional subject fee as above. We can also do pet only shoots, at the standard session prices.

Example Pet Portraits

Travel Fees

If your chosen shoot location is in the Tokyo area, our travel costs are included in the cost of your session. If we need to travel further afield, travel fees may apply. This will be relayed to you when you book your session. There are no hidden fees to surprise you later.
