The national awards were recently held at the Hilton Hotel in Watford with studios attending from throughout the UK. Presenting the awards and top judge was Olympus ambassador Damian McGillicuddy; the modern day David Bailey.


The winning photograph is shown here and was shot at our studio as one of our makeover and photo shoot sessions. Tara, the lady in the photograph is now a very happy mother as she was very pleasantly surprised to win £500 in cash. The studio wins £5000 worth of prizes. First place trophy and a certificate.

Harman Family Portraits

Another very happy client that came in for a family portrait session. Here’s what Karen had to say:

This was our first experience of a family photo shoot, and we were impressed at how Paul was able to get the best out of us to create a fantastic portfolio of photographs. There was an incredible number and variety of fabulous photos for us to view in a relaxed atmosphere. Marketa was on hand to guide us through the process of choosing photos, finishes and frames, and we are delighted with the end products.

Artistic Boudoir – Paul’s Way

In the last couple of years boudoir photography has become quite an item for the modern woman. A lot of it though in my onion is quite sleazy and rather than flatter and make the woman look feminine some don’t do her justice. These are poorly lit and to a trained eye the lighting skill of the photographer is completely lacking. There are a number of things that go into creating an artistic and creative boudoir photo. Great lighting, beautiful and feminine posing, mood and skilful editing. When all these skills come together the photo will sing to you and is just like poetry. It just works. That’s what I aim for and this is what I want to create for my clients. I hope if you look at my work and that of other studios that are creating boudoir photos all have a different look and you will need to choose a style that is appealing to your eye. Here’s one of my recent pieces:
