What area do you cover?

Based in Wigan, Greater Manchester, Mike is ideally located between Manchester and Liverpool with easy motorway access across the north west, Yorkshire, north Wales and West Midlands.

He easily covers and has great knowledge of these areas but has regularly work throughout the UK, and will work abroad if required.

How much do you charge?

This is always a difficult question to answer generically as any cost depends on what the shoot requirements are, the size, extent and location of the subject that is to be photographed.


Travel fees are chargeable at 45p per mile plus parking/toll charges. Travel time is not charged for local work but has to be allowed for work at a distance.

For a quotation or for further details please email mike@midi-photography with as much detail of your project as possible.

How long do I need to book you in advance?

As far in advance as possible is ideal, even if it is roughly pencilled in but due to the nature of construction and refurbishment work, most shoots are only confirmed at relatively short notice.

If you need work completing urgently please contact Mike on 07743 857126 or [email protected].

Can I purchase the copyright to a photograph?

As politely as possible, no. The copyright will always be owned by Midi Photography. Clients are licenced specific rights to the photographs through a Usage Licence. This is common practice. For the vast majority of projects, images are licensed for social media and web use, marketing and awards use and for an unrestricted amount of time.

Images must not be passed on or sold onto any third party.

Any third party usage must be licenced and costed separately directly through Midi Photography.

How long after the shoot will it take to get my photographs / video?

As soon as possible is the answer. You could expect to receive your fully edited photographs within one week, within a few days when possible.

For aerial video allow up to 2 weeks.

Do you charge for editing?

Editing is a fundamental part of the photographic process so, yes, editing time is factored into every price.

A photography shoot time usually equates to the editing time.

Aerial video editing is job specific but takes longer than photography editing.

Where can I see more of your photographs?

You can find more photographs on the Midi Photography social media pages. Facebook, TwitterInstagram and LinkedIn.

This website and social media are not exhaustive libraries so if there is something similar you need but cannot find, Mike may well have it in his archive library.

Can I buy any of your images?

Yes, of course. Mike is hoping in the future to include this service electronically on the website, but for now if there is an image you would like to buy please just ask using the contact page.

Not all images are for sale as some have commercial or intellectual rights attached.

Do I have to sign anything?

No, you don’t have to sign anything but to comply with commercial insurance obligations, Terms & Conditions are issued to new clients. Any subsequent instruction is deemed as an acceptance the Terms & Conditions.

Do you need CAA approval to fly a drone?

Yes. Midi Photography has a current Permission for Commercial Operation (PfCO) from the Civil Aviation Authority to fly drones commercially in the UK, and appropriate and adequate specific insurance for drone flights.

Every person flying drones commercially must have both to fly legally and safely.
