Our professional team know how to get the best out of you, so we ask you to put your trust in our professional hands. Just relax and enjoy it and you will be amazed at the amazing results.
I’d love to have my pictures taken but I don’t like my flabby stomach.
You are not alone there are so many people out there who feel exactly the same. All photos are retouched as soon as you come off set and during viewing. More specific changes to the image – such as removing a tattoo or slimming a tummy – can also be done by our in-house professionals if required. Supermodels and celebrities are regularly retouched in photographs and we provide exactly the same service to give you that perfect look.
Will you be cutting my hair?
No, we do not cut or colour hair.
Can I bring my boyfriend / girlfriend?
Yes absolutely. Your appointment is for you and a guest so if you choose to bring them as your guest they will be able to enjoy the experience with you. Please note we can only cater to groups of two adults maximum.
Are you an intimate sized studio?
We’re a small team, united by our love of fashion and photography. Our boutique studio is dedicated to capturing beautiful images for everyone, every single time. And you? You’re our honoured guest. No rushing, no pushing. It’s all about respect, taking our time and fusing our creative talents with your unique, gorgeous self to create images that reflect who you are and can be cherished forever.
Do you photograph groups of people or just a maximum of two?
Our team is committed to providing you with a photo shoot which delivers exactly what you want. We welcome double bookings, where you and a special friend or partner share the day, experiencing our fantastic make-over and photo shoot together. We only cater for a maximum of 4 adults per appointment.
Can I bring a friend to keep me company?
Yes of course. We have a relaxing reception area with a large projector and plenty of glossy magazines to read to keep them busy, plus they can happily chat to our friendly staff to keep them company.
What clothing should I bring in with me?
Your photo shoot is about your individual style and tastes. It will include up to 6 different outfit changes but you don’t have to stop there, we encourage you to bring around 6-10 different outfits or as much as you can bring with you. You can always make your final selection once in the studio, and of course we’re here to help.
Examples include: casual, evening, smart dress, sexy lingerie, swim wear, accessories ideally whatever you feel most comfortable in. The more variety of outfits you bring, the more fun we can have creating unique styles and the better your photo shoot will turn out.
Can I bring a scrap book of ideas to the photo shoot?
Yes. It’s a great idea and we love it when clients do. It gives us a great opportunity to talk you through any ideas and styles you may be wishing to emulate. Just show them to your stylist and photographer before beginning the shoot so we can ensure you leave with a set of images that were exactly what you wanted to achieve.
Can I wear Fake Tan prior to the photo shoot?
Yes you can, but while some fake tans can look great we recommend against applying any specifically for your photo shoot. Remember, we can retouch away any streaks or blotchy skin but it’s much easier to add a glow to even skin than it is to remove it.
I have special requirements – will The Picture House be able to meet these?
We sure can. We can assist with almost all requirements. For further information please contact our bookings department on 020 7078 7673 and speak to a member of our bookings team.
Are you a modelling agency?
No, we are a professional photography studio that specialises in creating beautiful makeover and magazine style photographs by working with professional creative staff with fashion industry experience. Some of our clients have ambitions of become a model and use our services to create a stunning portfolio. As high quality our images are we cannot guarantee our images are exactly what a modelling agency is looking for. We can advise, assist, and provide a print out of top recommended modelling agencies across the country.

Our bookings office hours are open Monday – Friday 10am – 6pm and we have appointments every day of the month from 10am – 4pm.
I don’t feel confident giving my card details over the phone.
You are not alone. Please rest assured knowing when you make a booking we use a secure server. The secure server software (SSL) encrypts all information you input before it is sent to us. Furthermore, as required by the UK Data Protection Legislation, we follow strict security procedures in the storage and disclosure of information you have given us, to prevent unauthorised access. Our security procedures mean that we may occasionally request proof of identity before we are able to disclose sensitive information to you.
I’ve booked my appointment, is it possible to change my appointment date?
Yes we are happy to rearrange your appointment free of charge providing you give the studio at least 7 days notice. To do so, please call our studio on 020 7078 7673 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
How many times can I change my appointment?

Your original deposit will be carried over to your new appointment and will be used as credit towards images. This way it is not lost and you can redeem it towards the cost of images.
I’ve just purchased a CD of all my images, what can I use them for?
Keeping your images on CD is the most popular option for keeping your shots. With the CD, you have lifelong rights to use the images for whatever you want, from screensavers to profile pages – it really is up to you! You can take the CD in to any shop which offers a photo printing service and can purchase as many copies as you please.#
Is it cheaper to just have the images on CD?
Unfortunately, in photography, the art is in the production of the image itself – the print out of it is simply the end product. It is for this reason that we do not differentiate between CD images and printed images in terms of price.
I have ordered retouching and prints, how long will it take for them to arrive?
We aim to deliver all prints and post production orders between 4-6 weeks. From time to time we may experience delays in production, but if this happens we will do our best to keep you informed of the progress of your order. If you experience a delay with your order please call our Customer Service Department on 020 7078 7673.

Once your appointment is confirmed you will receive another text with helpful directions and also our studio mobile number being +44 (0) 7821 981 028
Why do I need to confirm my appointment?
It a sign of courtesy so that we know you are still coming to your appointment.
How much do the photographs cost?
Our prices are competitive and unmatched in quality. Individual images start at £59 for either a High Resolution CD image or 12″ x 8″ Print and become cheaper the more that you purchase. Typically within a package prices vary between £45 – £25 per image.
