Neil White Photography:


£250 half day plus travel/£500 full day plus travel

If the shoot runs over the half day then its charged at £70 per hour.

Retouch is charged at £45 per hour. I know lots of people think this may not necessary, but this is as much a part of the end image as shooting the picture itself. Also if people want white background product shots, they need to be cut-out, cleaned up and prepared for web, print or ready for sending to magazines for editorial. My studio is capable of most still life/fashion scenarios, but equally I am fully portable!  Also like we discussed, usually the environment of the business itself is of key interest.

I am quite passionate about what our local area businesses has to offer and a strong supporter of 'Best Of British' :)

Welcome to Clive Nicholas of Business West...


Does your business have the potential for high growth?


Here’s a couple of interesting facts –

  • Not all high growth businesses are in the South East
  • High growth can be in almost any sector

What’s important is a mix of skills, ambition, determination, capacity and potential to grow the business.

Help for businesses to achieve their potential growth ambitions is now available through the government-backed GrowthAccelerator service. 

GrowthAccelerator is a partnership between the private sector and government that provides a range of essential support to accelerate business growth. 

You’re already building a thriving, successful company and you’re ready for your next big phase of growth. But do you know how to get there? GrowthAccelerator will help you get to the heart of the barriers that are holding your business back and work alongside you to identify the critical steps you need to take to achieve your next phase of growth rapidly and sustainably.

GrowthAccelerator offers businesses with the potential to grow –

  • An expert Business Growth Coach will work with your businesses to provide the know-how and ability to achieve sustainable growth. The coach will work in key areas such as business growth strategy and planning, sales and marketing, management and people, operations and processes
  • Access to up to £2,000 match funding for every senior manager for Leadership and Management Training
  • Growth Workshops (no contribution required)
  • Institute of Directors election fees waived (circa £200)
