Event photography is becoming an indispensable part of any decent event . To the point they are no longer complete without a photographer present. Event photography provides a great opportunity for guests to take away a memento of the evening or day but is also becoming another ‘attraction’ beyond the obligatory disco/dance.
As the picture from one of our recent events illustrates it does not all have to be about standing around in you finery, although of course such images remain popular. The younger members in particular are very quick to spot a chance for fun and brought up with camera phones far from camera shy.
The best bit though is adding such an attraction is normally free providing the event is large enough to cover the costs from the sale of prints on the night
We are always on the lookout for fresh venues so if you are staging any form of event around Aylesbury we would love to hear from you. WE offer printing on the night as well as online galleries. The latter can be password protected if required. Continue reading
Are you a photographer who always fancied trying a studio shoot but don’t know where to start? Perhaps you are nervous about directing a model or uncertain about how to set up and operate studio flash. If so this is an opportunity not to be missed!
We are holding a studio day on Saturday 25th February with the lovely IvoryFlame. Ivory flame is a local professional model who is a delight to work with and quite capable of posing without direction, leaving you free to concentrat on composition. You do not even need to worry about lighting. One of our professional photographers will be there to provide as much or as little help as you need to get things the way you want. This is a great chance to add some stunning photos to your portfolio and discover that a studio session can be fun too.
The cost is just £45 an hour for both the studio and IvoryFlame, who will be working up to tasteful nude. That is an hour of model photography on a 1 to 1 basis. No waiting for your turn as part of a large group!
Our Photographic Studio is in Stoke Mandeville near Aylesbury Bucks, withing easy reach of Tring, Thame, Princess Risborough and Wendover in Buckinghamshire as well as Chinnor Oxon. With a mainline station nearby even those further away or without personal transport can take advantage of this offer.
Slots available from 9:30am. Phone 01296 615631 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to book or ask and questions.
With all the shoots going on up to Xmas an unexpected piece of surprise good news passed by without the congratulations deserved. Just before Xmas our apprentice photographer Nils submitted a selection of images to the SIFGP (Society of Internation Fashion and Glamour Photographers) for a mentoring program. The normal process is for them to assess the images then write back with a critique of the photos, along with advice on where improvement is needed before submitting for one of the professional awards.
Nils was braced for a shock when the letter arrived but not the one he received. It turned out that the reviewers were so impressed by the initial images they decide to skip the normal process and submit them directly for the Licentiate qualification. Which they passed with glowing comments.
So a belated congratulations to Nils Bratby LSIFGP.
Trying to imagine what that gorgeous photo will look like on your wall while viewing it at the studio can sometimes prove difficult. Well we have just introduced the solution at our studio! Bring us a photograph of the wall where you are thinking of hanging your image and we can show you what it will look like in place and at the correct proportions. No guessing or trying to figure out the best size with a sheet of newspaper and blue-tak! We can even show you how groups of photos would look and swap the frames around so you can see the results of different options.
All we need to work our magic is a photo of your wall with something like a ruler or piece of A4 paper on view we can use to ensure the correct scale. Of course you will need to book your portrait session with us to take advantage of this free service.
Welcome to our new site
We have been talking about it for a little while and it has taken longer than expected to find what we wanted but at last the new site is here! All my rambling missives have gone, replaced by what you expect from a photographer. Photos.
Gone too are the video slide shows, at least from the main pages. In future we will post them as blogs and leave you to decide if you want to watch them.
Our intention is that the new design will be quicker to load and simpler to use. A better showcase for our images and an easier site for customers to find the information they need about our services.
