CORONAVIRUS INFO: My studio is currently still open, however because of the recent government recommendations if you have a shoot booked with me and would prefer to defer your shoot to another date you are free to do so.
For clients who still wish to go ahead I would like to reassure you that I am taking the following precautions for each shoot.
1) Not shaking hands on arrival
2) Washing my hands between each shoot
3) Disinfecting door handles after each shoot
3) Maintaining the recommended 1 meter distance from other people
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.
I remember standing and staring in awe at the ‘The Lady of Shalott’ when I saw it years ago in a London gallery. It’s a picture I had on my wall when I gave birth to my daughter at home, it’s one of those pictures which has stayed with me through my life. I have always loved the softness of the colours the mystery and the femininity shown in paintings by John Waterhouse. Here are some recent portrait images I took at my studio which were definitely inspired by his beautiful art.
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
So (grrr) last year I had problems with my Blog being hacked and my site being bombarded with hundreds of posts advertising American football shirts of all things! This year it has happened again and after a few months of head scratching and research online my very talented IT guru Tony has helped me to create a new more (and fingers crossed hopefully) secure version of my Blog but sadly have lost some posts in the process. So when you look at the dates please don’t be too judgy it’s just one of those things…
I was really chuffed to be asked by the Diagnostic Centre in Colchester to provide some images for their walls in the new centre. This evening was the official opening so I took along my dad as my wing man. He looked so smart in his suit, thanks for coming with me dad. Another moment and memory to treasure.
I welcome all Photographers to come a long and share my studio, I only charge £25 p/h this includes use of all the equipment and a black or white backdrop. If you are not a pro but are interested in finding out more about studio lighting then I also offer tuition to help you get set up. All you need to bring is some enthusiasm and your DSLR camera.
You can book via my website or call 01206 823299 if you have any questions or just want to chat about your requirements.
So sorry if I deleted you, but my Blog has recently been targeted by Spammers advertising their wears on my blog, over the last few days I have had to delete over 900 posts and delete over 7000 subscribers! For now I think it’s best I block everything until I can see the new Plug-in I have installed works. Please be patient if you visit my Blog and see unrelated posts it’s spam which is somehow sneaking in I am closely monitoring my site and finding out more about tools which will help me block these horrible bots.
