More information about ordering.


Archived image retrieval.

In most cases we retain images for many years, (twenty-five plus), and should therefore be able to accommodate a request for that special photograph. The image number will be required and a charge will be made for this service. Please refer to price list.

Booking enquiries.

Each function has its own special requirements and because of that, we will quote individually to each request. The important thing is that you get the coverage you require. We work mainly within and around the City of London. Let us know the venue, date, timings and what you want to achieve and we will do our best to accommodate your requirements.

Cancellation and refunds.

We do not hold stock of any photographs. Every order is produced individually to your requirements and therefore, regretfully once order has been placed cancellations or request for refunds cannot be accepted.


No orders are placed until you reach the final 'Order confirmation and payment' area. You will be made fully aware before actually committing to an order so we would encourage you to make use of the many options on the site to view your images in different sizes and presentation formats, i.e. Framed prints, on canvass, Blocks etc. All of your selection can be changed and or deleted at anytime before the final ordering process.
