We love capturing those special events in your life, whether family, business, sporting or social. We provide high quality photography, including pop-up studios, roaming photographer, and print-on-site options.
We also provide creative support to your event whether that be designing invitations and menus, marketing support, social media support or anything else creative.
Business or Corporate Events
As a former corporate senior executive, David is well versed in what makes a good business event. We have photographed international congresses, business gatherings, awards dinners, commemorative lunches and promotional events. We under stand the need to be flexible and professional, to gain the respect of our clients and to be fully prepared and responsive.
Your event has a purpose and our job is to help you achieve as much as you can towards that objective and beyond
The images we produce help our clients promote their activities and values. Our job is to give you a library of photos which tell the story of your event and enable you to promote what you are doing.
Sometimes our clients want images that can be given to customers, sponsors, or employees to say thank you for their business, support, or hard work.
Sometimes our clients want images that are media focussed for legacy or social media use and promotion.
Sometimes our clients just want a record of the excitement and enjoyment of the event for future reference.
We provide a flexible service tailored to your bespoke requirements.
We might be roaming the event taking informal or semi-posed photographs of people taking part. This can work well for participatory events like workshops or trade shows, but also works well in most environments to create more informal and engaging imagery for media or web use.
We might be taking some formal posed photographs, for example of guests at a corporate dinner or lunch, or of award winners at an award ceremony. These can be great as presents and thank yous.
We always offer a digital gallery of images from the event, from which our client can download pictures in different formats and sizes.
We can also provide a print-on-site facility using a high quality dedicated event printer, for those clients who would like to provide a physical memory to the people at the event.
Or perhaps you would like a book of the best photos or a slide show or some larger prints or wall mounted pictures of the event? All is entirely possible and deliverable by us.
And, finally, most importantly, your branding can be include in the design of any digital or physical product you decide to include in our services to you.
In working with us, you are working with a flexible, customer-focussed and professional photography and design business. We take every commission as individual and tailor our work to you. We don’t pretend to be the cheapest but we are value. Contact us to start discussion. You will not regret it.
Social and Family Events
Whether we are talking about a ball with hundreds of guests or a festival with bands and entertainers, a small family gathering for a birthday or another life event, school prom, or graduation party, one of the best things about that event will be the memories.
Having a professional photographer at your event means that you have someone there capturing these memories in physical form for you. No need for any of your guests to be chasing around worrying about taking photos, just the relaxed confidence that you will have great photos to look at in the future.
We always aim to keep things informal and low key at any social event because it is your event and its is not our job to add stress.
We prefer to be roaming the event taking informal or semi-posed photographs, and to minimise any required formal posing. Our experience is that this helps people open up and be part of the event without feeling self-conscious. That delivers better photographs.
Photography can also be part of the fun.
For some parties, it can be a good idea to have a Photo Booth. We don’t provide one of those, we do better. We prefer to be bespoke to you.
We can provide a ‘pop-up’ studio linked to a photo printer and create an environment that is to a design bespoke to you to take fun photos in, staffed and supported throughout the event. That is so much better than the formula approach taken by traditional photo booths.
After your event you will get a digital gallery of edited photos and you can order prints, albums, books, or virtually anything else from us. We strongly advise you to get physical copies of your favourites as a photograph has much more impact when you see it that way.
We know how important these special social events are to you. We want to help you get the best memories from the event without injecting any extra stress into the occassion. That is why we prefer to minimise the amount of formal photography and keep things informal. If you want to have fun and still commemorate great memories, contact us and start a discussion. You will not be disappointed.
Whether you are organising a sports event for charity, running a local team, pulling together a larger participation event such as a cycle race, triathlon, mud race or marathon, or just competing as an individual and wanting some promotional shots, we can help.
We have commercially covered triathlons, marathons, horse eventing, football, cycling, gym work and charity Santa runs and sky-diving (from ground level!). Most of these events have been in the UK but also in three other European countries.
Larger events need a team of photographers and we know who to work with to deliver this for you. Smaller events we can cover on our own.
If you are an athlete and you want to promote yourself maybe to sponsors or just to raise your profile on social and legacy media, then we can provide you with bespoke imagery to get across the image you want to portray through both action shots and studio shots.
At the moment I am offering reduced prices to individual athletes, so this could be the best time to get in touch.
We are also very keen to work more with those involved in equestrian sports, so the reduced rates also apply to you if you are a horse rider or owner or trainer of a competing horse.
From any sports photography, there will be options to deliver photographs digitally and in print. These will depend on the individual project.
We love sport and sports people, we also love horses. Get in touch for a discussion about what we could do together for you. Just contact us.
I am not a wedding photographer. Well, not in that way.
As with our social photography, I like to work in a more relaxed and informal manner at any event. Our experience is that there is enough stress and pressure in a wedding for the key people involved without a photographer or two getting under everyone’s feet and interrupting the flow of the greates occasion of your life.
So what we offer is a ‘reportage’ style centred on roaming the wedding and capturing the full buzz of your special day, with the minimum number of more formal set-up photographs. Of course we seek to capture the key moments from arrival to cake, first dance and departure (or the key moments in your culture and plans).
