Who am I?
My name is Jacob Forsyth-Davies, I am a photographer and videographer with over 8 years of experience. Whether you are looking to record a full performance for personal use, aiming to create a promotional video, or getting some great photography for future promotional content, I would love to get involved.
What do I do?
Whether covering an international festival, a dance competition, or a local drag night, I can provide high quality coverage even in the most difficult conditions, whilst remaining unobtrusive to the performers and audience alike.
Photography Pricing information
For performance photography coverage I charge £40 per shooting hour, with editing time and internal/social rights to image use included. Commercial/journalistic image rights can be purchased at an additional cost. For longer performances, or coverage of multiple performances, feel free to get in touch and we can discuss further.
Highlights Videography Pricing information
For performance videography coverage I charge £50 per shooting hour, which includes a short highlights reel of the event and internal/social rights to video use. Raw footage delivery, and commercial/journalistic video usage rights are also available at an additional cost. For longer performances, or coverage of multiple performances, feel free to get in touch and we can discuss further.
Frequently Asked Questions
Typically I will have all the photographs edited, finished, and sent within 48 hours of the performance. In busier periods this may not always be possible, but I can guarantee the finished photographs will be delivered within 96 hours. Video work is more variable, and depends on the individual project, but I can give you a better estimation in discussing the video with you.
I offer the choice to either pay either entirely in advance, or half in advance, and half after the receipt of the media, allowing for maximum flexibility. I am happy to receive money through bank transfer, cash, cheque, or other methods such as Paypal if needed.
In the very unlikely event that I am unable to attend a performance due to unforeseen circumstances, I will get in touch with several photographers of at least equal quality and experience, so that one of them may attend the event in my place at no extra cost.
I am fully insured, including equipment, liability, and indemnity insurance.
I have a full back-up kit with me, including a spare camera body, alternative lenses, backup batteries, memory cards, and more. My camera records to two memory cards at once to provide maximum safety, and my hard drive holding the images is backed up weekly.
I have previously worked with many different photographers and have a number I know to be very reliable and produce very high quality work. If needed, I can provide contact with a secondary photographer, or work with another you have hired.
