Here are the answers to some of the most common questions that people ask me. If you have any other questions, please feel free to get in touch.
Do you have a studio?
No, I don’t but I have been working in offices, homes, gardens, workshops, factories and pretty much everywhere setting up a studio backdrop. In fact, most of the images on my website that look like taken in a studio are not taken in a studio environment.
Feel free to see my Instagram stories for behind the scene images to see the environments I have been working in.
How many photos do you take in a session?
I take between 100 to 300 photos during the standard shoot and we review the shots as we go along, to make sure we are both happy with the results.
I am very nervous, camera shy, and hate having my photograph taken. Will a session work for me?
Most people are shy in front of the camera. It is my job to help you relax and make sure your confidence is captured by the camera. Please see my testimonials for some feedback and how my clients felt during the photoshoot.
I am not photogenic and worry about how I will look in the photos
I don’t believe in “photogenic.” We all have different looks, bone structure and facial imperfections. It is my job to find the right angle and use tricks to make you look as good as you are, if not better!
What should I wear?
Something that you know suits you and that you enjoy wearing. Bringing a range of different clothes to change into can help to enrich the experience and bring out the best results. I would avoid strong patterns and stick to solid colours as we wouldn’t want any unnecessary distraction.
I have a cold sore or a big spot on the day of the shoot. Should I rearrange?
There is no need to rearrange, blemishes can easily be removed on Photoshop.
Can I cancel?
If you need to cancel or re-schedule please do this at least 48 hours before the agreed time. Otherwise, there will be a fee that is half of the agreed amount for the shoot.
If you do not show up for the session 100% of my fee is payable.
Can I get unedited images?
I do not give unedited images as they are unfinished and are not representative of my work. I aim to offer you images that show you at your best.
who holds the COPYRIGHTs?
Where commercial or editorial photography has been commissioned, the client and the photographer agree that copyright is retained by Onur Pinar Photography unless otherwise agreed in writing. However, this doesn’t mean you can’t use or need to pay an extra fee to use your photos on social media or on your personal website. Please contact if you need further information.
What is included in the retouching?
I include free, natural editing of, tone, colour grading, cropping, contrast and blemishes. Additional retouching requests will be quoted separately.
