You can trust us to do the job for you. With thousands of happy clients, we must be doing something right. But don’t just take our word for it, see our reviews for yourself.
How can Splento photo shoots be so affordable? Does that mean they’re poor quality?
Exactly the opposite. Splento is not the "budget" photography option.
Most professional photographers charge hundreds of dollars for an hour of their time because they need to cover many more hours of business administration. They need to handle their own marketing, billing, networking, branding and much more.
Splento does all this for them, enabling photographers to spend much more of their time shooting which means they can charge much less per hour for the same excellent work.
Can I see the photographer’s work before booking?
Yes, you can find most photographer portfolios here: https://www.splento.com/portfolios
How many photos per hour does the photographer usually take?
Usually up 100 photos per hour, however, it depends on the type of the session — for example, headshots will be fewer, trade shows will be more.
Can I rebook the same Splento photographer or videographer?
If you are particularly happy with the service you receive from a Splento photographer you can rebook them for future photo-sessions. However, we cannot guarantee that the same photographer will be available on your required date.
To ensure a seamless and on-demand service, we suggest you book as normal and let us provide you with the closest available professional photographer. All our photographers are equally skilled and we can guarantee great quality, no matter what.
Is it okay for me to book a photographer directly, rather than going through Splento next time?
What a lot of people don’t know is that a third of a freelance photographer's time is spent searching for and managing clients and another third is spent retouching photos. This means that only a fraction of their time is spent doing the work they actually love to do — taking photographs!
By taking client acquisition and photo retouching out of the equation for photographers, we can offer considerably cheaper prices to customers and keep photographers happier.
By booking with the same photographer, outside of Splento, you will pay double or triple rates for the same service and there is no guarantee you will get your photos within 48 hours.
I’m based outside of London, can I still book with Splento?
