    The site seems to load pretty instantaneously on Chrome just now.

    There's plenty of useful information for prospective clients. The only thing that jarred with me a little were the cancellation terms - I appreciate you don't want to be messed around but having to give three days notice to rearrange an appointment (and just the once) might put me off a little (I'm thinking someone taking suddenly ill stands to lose out unless you vary your terms)


    But other than that, all the very best for when we can leave homes and your new venture has the chance to take off :)

    I just sent you an email with a pdf.
    Please bear in mind that there is a lot of good about your site that neither my post or others will mention: we are indeed trying to bring whatever little knowledge/expertise we have in our respective domains to view your site with a critical eye, so we miss out on what you know about competition in your field and whatever we say is just meant to bring your attention to some points

    Thank you, Jon, and I'm glad it loaded quickly for you.

    I did think very carefully about the cancellation terms (and this is the last of a few iterations, in fact), but went with the advice that I received in the end. Bear in mind that studios can be booked and other punters (or do I mean munters?) turned away, so cancellations and reschedules can have both direct and indirect cost implications. i'll think about it again, though.

    Thanks for all the input yesterday, everyone. I've slept on it and made a few changes (navigation, terms, footer, etc) that I think have improved the site.

    All the views expressed are much appreciated.

    Thanks very much, Dunk. I’ll be shooting with my a7RII and a 90mm f2.8 (actually a macro - it’s super-sharp).

    Right, everyone, I’m up to 18 people now so I’m going to call it a day in terms of anyone else coming along.
