I saw an advert for a local photographer a few weeks ago on a Facebook, I checked out his Facebook page . I decided that I would be a little cheeky and contacted them asking if they had ever considered working with bloggers.
I started chatting with Liam via email, He had never worked with bloggers but was interested in hearing more about this blog and what would be involved with working together.
We arranged to attend the session on Saturday morning in the Gate centre in Huyton and we agreed that I would write this post in exchange for the photo-shoot and interviewing Liam about his work, as well as giving my opinion on the website.
I had already had a look at the Whitebox website, it is bright, colourful and attractive to look at, more importantly it is easy to navigate.
I selected Northwest and Liverpool then it comes up with a list of photoshoot types.
Liam mainly does 3 types of photoshoots:-
Free Newborn Baby Taster Photo-shoot– These are for babies up to 16 weeks and are actually free, you need a £10 deposit to book but you get the back on the day. The shoot lasts about 10 minutes and you will receive about 20 photographs of your baby.
- Children Only Photo-shoots – This is for up to 3 children under the age of 16, perfect for siblings. It costs £25 and lasts for approximately 10 minutes. You get a minimum of 25 photos to take away with you.
- Family Photo-shoots – These are for up to 5 people and cost £45 ( £15 deposit and £30 on the day) It lasts about 20 minutes and you get a minimum of 50 photos to take home.
If you are interests in getting photo’s done please take a look at Whitebox photography’s website an see when they will next be in your area.
Charlotte and I arrived at The GATE community centre in Huyton just before our appointment time of 11.40am, and went inside. We were greeted by Liam who was set up in a large room near the rear of the building, it was very well signposted from the entrance so easy to find.
