When setting up our portait photography studio in the Aylesbury and Stoke Mandeville area towards the end of 2010 we were prepared for a long battle to get established. Family portrait photography relies much on word of mouth and the current economic climate is, well not the obvious time to set up a major new venture! Despite that we have been seeing more customers every week and having a great time in the process.
Family Portraits are always fun of course and each one a different challenge. Young children bursting with energy, newborns still trying to make sense of their new world. We have had the privelege of photographing for Golden wedding Anniversaries, Engagements, Birthdays and Baby bumps.
Pet portraiture is something we decided to start offering this year. With plenty of parking right outside the studio we are ideally placed to bring your cats dogs or other pets. It can be a bit challenging at times of course but boy what fun. So satisfying when you see the delighted looks of the owners too.
Fashion Photography is the area Nils, our first apprentice has been specialising in. The year started off with the great news that he had been granted his Licentiate qualification for the SIFGP on his first submission. This month some of his images were published in the April/May issue of American Rebelicious magazine (Pages 8 to11) In between he has been busy working for a number on online catalogue companies selling Gothic, Retro, Rockabilly and other styels of clothing.
Commercial and corporate photography was not an area we expected to pick up quite so quickly. It seems however companies are starting t realise the importance of professional images on their sites. We have been busy photographing all sorts of wild and wonderful products. From Essential oils and Nappy cakes one week to Replica weapons for police training the next.
We started the new year by expanding our studio. Taking on additional space. In addition to the main shoot area and lounge/viewing room we now have extra storage. More importantly we also have the downstairs section. This has bee transformed to give a welcoming reception area. We have also added some great new products to our growing selection of samples for those popping in to say hi and enquire about our services. Contact Us
