Apparently these days you only have 15 seconds before your potential customers leave your website. That’s why professional photography for you, your website and your products is important to make you stand out from your competitors. If you need product cut out or on pure white backgrounds or lifestyle images please get in contact.
The year started off mega busy with a mix of studio shoots and visiting premises. I share my Colchester Photo Studio with other Photographers & creatives for a nominal fee of only £25 p/h. To give more info about the studio I have updated the studio website here. I hire the studio out to film makes, pro photographers, students, amateur photographers and also offer tuition if needed. If you want to have a chat or find out more please call me on 01206 511986. Thanks
My head shots start from £75, the shoot takes about 30-45 mins during which I will take various pictures, some with jacket on some with jacket off some of you smiling some of you less smiley. I can take anywhere between 30-70 images during your shoot which I then send you afterwards via email. There is no having to return to my studio, no hard sell just check your email for the gallery link look through the images in the comfort of your own home and let me know which images you would like.

You might be looking for product photography, a new headshot or a series of bespoke images for your website. I recently finished an assignment for Phil Toogood at Cranfield Philips who I worked with on numerous shoots to put together some images specifically for his new website. After meeting with Phil and his website design team Fever we hatched a plan and put together a draft for the different style shoots to fit with his brand and his new website design. See a few of my fave shots below…
Simon turned up telling me he felt a bit nervous, he wanted some headshots for his website for another project he is working on and for his personal use. The first image is the one I took when Simon first sat down, I told him not to worry about posing I asked him to tell me a bit about himself and what he has been up to lately, to relax and ignore me as I didn’t want him to focus on me I was just checking the lights. He started to tell me a funny story we both got the giggles, his nerves had subsided so we could then start to take some more serious pics. About half way through Simon asked me if I would mind taking some images of him in his grandads hat (of course I was delighted I love using props) he told me about his grandad and how smart he often used to look he remembers his grandad wearing this hat. I think you will agree the hat suits him…
I am lucky to have a few photographer friends so when we want to update our own images online we spend a day messing about like little kids in the studio, experimenting and playing around. Thanks Jack what a work out but worth it, I think we got some good ones of each other. This was me trying to look like a corporate animal(which I am not naturally) and ending up dissolving into pulling faces and relaxing into this pose.
Head shots don’t have to be stuffy and dull, clients come to my studio but I also visit clients at their work place. It all depends on your company message, how you want your clients to see you and the colour and style of your website.
Headshots start at £75, this includes the edit and choice from approx 30-60 images.
I just wanted to let everyone know that I do hire my studio out to budding enthusiasts and pro photographers. If you are not sure about how to set up studio lighting for your shoot then I can show you, I offer tuition and can help you get set up before your client arrives. Find out more here…
I know it’s been a while since I added a blog post, after a busy summer I took some time off and lost myself on a boat on the Norfolk Broads and loved a week away on Rhodes cycling to deserted beaches and eating lots of greek salad. Now I’m back having switched one of my labels from being a ‘smoker’ to being a ‘vaper’ I have also had my haircut and am seriously reconsidering the gym!
So a little piece of news ( which I am really chuffed about) is Nicholas McCarthy (Pianist) has chosen to use one of my images to use on his new album cover Echoes which is out now he is also on tour see more info here.
