Booking T&C / Policies / FAQ

How do I book?

You are supposed to send me a private msg over facebook after adding me to your facebook account. I need to verify that yours is a genuine enquiry and I prefer to take in bookings from people/friends who knows my work after they have gone through my portfolios. ( I do not wish to be subjected to possibilities of complains from unreasonable consumers who are not recommended or referred).

Marketing Right

Niko Tay / Ting / A Nictay Production will hold the all rights of your photos and by engaging me, you give me permission / rights to use your photos for printing of my own portfolio books or other promotion materials that might be implemented.

What if I do not want my photos to be posted online or for printing for your marketing fair use?

There will be a marketing right fee that you need to top up.

Where is the location of Photoshoot

Choa Chu Kang - Do not expect a glamourous air-conditioned studio. It is not.
For outdoor shoots, we will still meet at CCK for Makeup and Styling.

Which days can i book?

I am accepting bookings for all days (weekends or weekdays), however subjected to availability.

How long will i wait for my pictures to be ready?

I am doing everything myself, so with the normal queue, you should expect to wait at least 1 month for photos to be ready.


You will collect your edited soft copies with your 8gb thumbrive when your pictures are ready. Please come with appointment. Please collect your soft copies within 1 month of notification. Otherwise, I will not be liable for compensation should there be loss of files due to malfunction of the hardware.

What will i expect when i come for the shoot?

Nothing! Come with an open heart! Give me your trust and I will make sure you will be happy with what I will produce for you. :) Do not book if you haven't heard or witnessed about my work. I discourage people who has their own demands and expectations to book with me. Because a session with me is to discover another you whom you never knew!

What things to prepare for the photoshoot ?

1) Eye Lashes

2) Big Eye Contact Lens (if any)

3) Variety of outfits (Different styles and colours)

4) Matching Shoes

5) Accessories to match your wardrobe is welcomed (eg. Earrings, hats, scarves, necklaces)

6) I provide pre-shoot merchandising consultation shopping session. PM to check my rates


1) A deposit will be requested to be transferred to my POSB current Account

2) Balance payment strictly on the day of the shoot


I do not allow cancellation thus there will not be a deposit refund should you cancel your appointment.
