Do you work for Squarespace?

No, but I am an official Squarespace Specilaist and Authorised Trainer.

I don't currently have a website, can I still take part?

Best not, this is not an ‘intro to Squarespace’ session - but we will be running those soon. Contact me for wait list.

I need to improve my product photography, can you help me with that?

Yes I can, my studio is focussed on product and still life photography for designer/makers and micro businesses. See: for more and drop me a line for more info on rates, srtyling and how to prepare for your photoshoot.

My website is currently a Shopify/Big Cartel/Wordpress/Weebly site, can you help me move to Squarespace?

Yes I can, it is even possible to import content from pages, blogs and product listings.

Do you only use Squarespace?

Yes, I use this platform because I find it to be the most user-friendly, well designed and intuitive.

Can you get me a discount?

Yes! When you book a session you will receive 20% off your first year with Squarespace. Please note, this discount is only valid on your first Squarespace purchase, not upgrades.

Do I need to know about code?

Not at all, in fact I only use code myself if the project requires a particular customisation.

Will you upload all the content for me?

No, I will show you how and encourage you to do most of this yourself - this helps you gain confidence.

Do I bring my own lunch?

Yes please. Lunch is not provided by tea, coffee, water and fruit/nuts will be provided. We have local shops and sandwhich shop. Lunch will be 45mins 1.00pm-1.45pm.

Is there any backup support provided afterwards?

I am happy to answer simple questions by email, more in-depth support is chargable by the hour or you can book a half day or full day indivdual session. Squarespace also has excellent guides and email support.
