FAQ:

Q: I don’t have any formal training – can I do this? Yes, we have successfully trained lots of people to take great pictures.  You will need a friendly personality and a keen enthusiasm for photography though.  An ability to promote yourself and your photography is recommended too! Our minimum age for our team of photographers is 18.

Q: What camera do I need? You will need a DSLR with a minimum of 12MP and a 50mm lens.  You will also need to provide an uptodate DBS check.

Q:  I have lots of contacts – can I use them rather than you giving me shoots? Yes, of course, we pay additional bonuses if you have found the work yourself, but we try to source work for you as well.

Q:  I already have a website and do some family photography – can I become part of your team? YES! We are now able to welcome small independent professional photographers!  We offer an extra income stream for your business by providing a licence opportunity to work with Blue Hedgehog Photography all over the UK.

Q:  How much does it cost? As a Blue Hedgehog Photographer our training is £99 – you simply purchase our online course, this is to be worked through over a maximum of four weeks with additional information coming to you week by week.  Of course you can talk to us first simply use our contact page and we can run through more things with you. As a licencee you will need to contact us  for details on our licence opportunities.

Q:  Will I need a DBS check (the old CRB)? We feel that this adds to your service and reassures parents if you have one.  We do not recommend any one company and you can find plenty on the internet who can do them for you such as this one : http://www.totalcrb.co.uk/about-the-dbs-check/  OR if you already volunteer at your child’s school that you have an up to date DBS check from there.
