A place for me to share my ideas on photography and my experiences in the photography studio.
My wife, Sally, and I will also share our experiences as parents with Leicester child & family friendly places.

All family photo shoots, photography viewings and pre photo shoot meetings had to be cancelled this week because Sally slipped over and broke her ankle. We’re really sorry for any inconvenienced caused, as we’ve had some wonderful family photo shoots recently and we know people were really keen to come and view them. But me and Sally sent most of the week in and out of various hospitals as a course of action for Sally’s ankle was decided upon. We are happy to say, Sally doesn’t need the surgery we all thought she did at the start of the week and normal(ish) service is resumed from today and its all steam ahead with today’s studio photo shoots.

This is one of my favourite photography portraits of a teenage boy that I have ever taken in our Lutterworth studio. After what was a really good fun family photoshoot at our studio we moved on to a fine art portrait photography session. Fine art photography sessions are much lower in energy than our fun family photoshoots but through a relaxed atmosphere, classical Rembrandt lighting and a relaxed subject we achieved a real insight into the personality of our subject. And through this calm and steady gauze into the lens we achieved a real piece of photographic portrait art that I am really proud of.
Our fine art photography sessions can be added to a family photoshoot if we get a little notice. We just fine that it is better to have a little more time in the session. Not just for light and outfit changes but just to get the pace of the fine art photography session just right. We also like to have a discussion with our photography clients about fine art sessions just to discuss what colours and types of clothes are going to work best in the session.
