The Big Move
As you may have heard, I am moving across the pond to sunny Portugal this year.
Portugal is where I was born and lived before I moved to the UK in 2004. It never stopped feeling like home and for years I have been dreaming of moving back. Lucky for me my partner (who is British) also fell in love with it and he too wants to be surrounded by hand painted azulejos (tiles) and sipping sangria in the sun. When Covid hit and we suddenly weren't able to travel over to Portugal, not even to visit my family, we decided this was it. We are finally taking the plunge and move there!
We are aiming to go ahead with the move in October 2022.
The good news is that I will continue to work remotely with UK small businesses. I'll still be creating photos that show off your amazing products for your website, online shop, social media and everything else you need to run your business. Please stick around as I aim to keep the remote service as simple and easy to use as possible.
How will it work?
My remote service will operate as usual, just from an international address.
You may already be familiar with international delivery through your own business and may be happy to use your chosen courier for this. This is totally fine!
If you're not sure where to start I'm here to help you work everything out. I have done some digging and found UPS Small Business offer very competitive prices. They will take any parcel up to 70kg and the prices are only determined by the box size. For example, a large box (up to 70kg) will cost under £20 and will be delivered within 5 working days. I can also advise that you identify your products as samples when filling out the commercial invoice form to avoid custom charges.
I will then return your products to you via UPS Small Business to the address you provide me with, like I normally do.
During the shoot, screen share will still be an option if you'd like to see the photos as I'm taking them - there is no time difference between the UK and Portugal. If not, I'm happy to crack on with the shoot without you.
If you are looking for a location shoot in a sunny location with a mediterranean feel, you're in the right place!
I will have access to beaches, portuguese cities, gorgeous houses and lots of sunshine. Get in touch and we'll start planning your next 'holiday' photoshoot.
