Training day with Sharon

Last week we took Sharon to Marwell for a follow-up workshop and had a great afternoon helping her to get to grips with her new Canon Camera. We did our usual walk around and photographed a great selection of animals including the Tigers and cubs.

The main focus of this was to teach Sharon how to use her apertures correctly, in this case, to enable her to photograph through very thick dirty glass and through cages using just her camera settings.  Check out the last photo to see this.

Sharon has lots of plans with her photography and if you want to follow suit then get in touch with us, we offer courses and workshops covering most styles and types of photography.

We are currently running a very special offer with our Marwell workshops.

We hope that you enjoy these photographs from this workshop, we are very pleased with them and we feel they show off using your cameras AV and S mode very well and also the various focus and metering modes all of which are interesting to learn about and will take your photography to a new level.

Donna and Martyn’s winter wedding

On Wednesday we joined Martyn and Donna for their lovely winter wedding at the lovely Bell Inn near Lyndhurst. It was a tiny wedding with only 14 guests and quite a few of those were children and the Bell Inn suited it just perfectly. We started our day with Donna for a few pre-wedding photos before heading into the ceremony room.

Donna arrived a few minutes later looking amazing and the ceremony was just lovely. Afterwards we all spilled out into the bar area for drinks and a few relaxed photos and a few family groups,  A couple more with Donna and Martyn and then that was it 🙂 Everybody was ushered into dinner so Sue and I said our goodbyes.

This was a beautiful bespoke little wedding for us with wonderful people and a perfect way to spend a Wednesday.

Thank you Donna and Martyn, it was fab x

Here are a few photos from this wonderful wedding I hope you enjoy and love them as much as we do and look forward to your comments and seeing you again soon,

Ayden’s first birthday shoot

Yesterday we had another visit from Ayden and his mummy and daddy and part of the shoot was a few birthday photos.

Ayden has been to see us 3 times so far so is well used to our studio and us. We had a lot of fun yesterday and look forward to the next one.

We offer great rates and even better for returning clients so why not message me below for details and start your own beautiful family album which you can add to each year and then in years to come you can sit down with the grand children and family and look back through the years.  Our studio is a professional studio with air conditioning, private parking and changing and bathroom facilities,  its not our home but we like to make it yours during your shoot.

Sue and I photograph hundreds of portraits every year and I am very proud to say we always get the results we want, we have very much an unhurried approach to our studio work, we often sit down for a coffee with our clients before the shoot and let the kids play on the background with our toys, this make the parents relaxed and the children comfortable and it gives us cracking smiley photos. The difference between us and a high street studio with a strict time limit is immeasurable because unlike them we never rush a shoot. We believe if people are comfortable and happy in our studio then they will come back again and again and its proved to work 🙂

It also helps that we both LOVE what we do………..

We are running some very special portrait offers at the moment so if your looking for photos of yourself or your  a couple or a family please take a look because I am sure you will find something that will interest you

Marwell workshop with Becks and Jacqui

On Wednesday we held one of our “getting to know your camera” workshops for Becks and Jacqui. As always we started our day here at the studio going through camera settings and the basics of photography as well as planning our day which changes depending on what our clients are after.

After our studio couple of hours and a few coffee’s 🙂 we headed off up to Marwell and spent a few hours with Becks and Jacqui helping them with there cameras and mastering the art of photographing through thick glass and wire cages and I am pleased to say they both did fantastic and had a lot of fun.

We were lucky with most of the animals and especially the bigs cats but the avery was closed as a bird flu precaution so we sadly missed them.

Here are a few photos from the day, we are still running our half price marwell offer so send me a message if you you have a new Christmas camera and fancy this.

We hope that you enjoy these photographs from this workshop, we are very pleased with them and we feel they show off using your cameras AV and S mode very well and also the various focus and metering modes all of which are interesting to learn about and will take your photography to a new level.
