Can your client choose their favorite pictures and do you edit them?

Yes. I generally send my clients a wide edit from the shoot and then they choose their final selects which are retouched and supplied in high res.

No, I shoot all over, where ever the work is! I am based in Somerset now and enjoy working in the South West, but I still travel to London for the majority of my bigger jobs.
