How to book

The place to go  for pin-up, vintage and classic Hollywood  photography!

Fully equipped, internationally published, award-winning studio

At Picture House Portraits, we firmly believe that pricing should be transparent, so we won't lure you in with a cheap shoot price and then try and pressure you into buying an expensive package of prints. All our shoots come with a minimum of one 10" x 8" print included in the price, and extra ones can be bought individually, as detailed below:

1-hour shoot  - £80

Book an hour-long shoot with us, and the package price includes the use of any of our sets, props and outfits (with additional time to choose and try on items from our wardrobe at no extra charge!), for up to two people. For groups of three people or more, there is an additional charge of £10 to cover extra editing time. Included in the price, you will receive three web-sized images to share on Facebook and a 10" x 8" print! Hair and make-up is not offered for one-hour shoots due to the time needed for our professional partners to work their magic! If you'd like hair and makeup, please book one of our other packages.

Half-day shoot  - £240

For those wanting to build a portfolio, get some images for publication or simply want a collection of different photos to share with your family and friends, we offer a half-day shoot (three-and-a-half hours).  Included within this price are three images of your choice, all of which will be retouched to magazine standard if you wish, and supplied as 10" x 8" prints. Hair and make-up is available as an optional extra at a price of £65 per person, subject to availability.

 Full day shoot  - £450

If you want to build up a good quality vintage or pin-up portfolio, our full-day shoots are ideal. The seven hour time slot will allow you the opportunity to try out a variety of our sets, props and outfits, and we guarantee to supply you with a minimum of eight different images from the day, all of which will be retouched to magazine standard if you wish, and supplied as 10" x 8" prints. Hair and make-up is available as an optional extra at a price of £125 per person for the full day.

 Girls' Night  - £400

Have you got a hen night coming up, or fancy a night out with a difference? Look no further than one of our Girls' Nights! These consist of a fun four-hour stint in the studio for up to five people, with  hair and make-up, outfits galore and some really fun memories as well as some great photos! You supply a bottle of your favourite tipple and we'll supply the glasses! Please be aware that these evenings are very popular, so early booking is recommended to avoid disappointment! Each member of the group will receive two 10" x 8" prints of their choice from the shoot.

Please note: a 50% deposit is required at the time of booking

Add-on prices

If you'd like to buy extra prints, images or add-on items, you are welcome to do so if you wish. We won't ask you to commit to doing so at the time of your shoot; once you have reviewed the low resolution images we send you, simply contact us if you wish to order prints and canvases. Our canvases are top quality, and are sealed with museum-grade varnish to guard against fading and marking and to guarantee longevity. The prices are as follows:
