Personal Trainer Portfolio Photography

Professional Portfolio Photography for Personal Trainer

When promoting your service as a Personal Trainer, you are marketing yourself. A key element when launching or updating your website and social media exposure is professional Portfolio Photography.

Your portfolio of images need to explain who you are and what you do. This is the first impression your potential clients will receive, so make it stand out. Over the years, we have had the pleasure of providing portfolio photography to a number of fitness professionals. The studio is specially lit to highlight muscle definition, which generally as a photographer is the complete opposite to a family photo shoot session. We normally set up the lighting to soften and slim down features.

Personal Trainer Rich Palmer recently returned to our studio to update his portfolio. We booked the studio out for half a day to allow for preparations, not only from a photographic set up, but also for Rich to prepare. He brought along some equipment to warm up his muscles to increase definition. We worked together on the poses to create an excellent portfolio of images to explain Richard’s training. Poses include muscle definition, exercises, and show Rich’s approachable and friendly manner. Below are a sample of the images. If you would like more information on Rich Palmer PT, click here to visit his website.

Event Photography for Specsavers

Event Photography for Opening of Specsavers Store

On Wednesday 8th March we attended the official opening of the new Specsavers store in Mere Green, Sutton Colfield. Our event photography service included the important cutting of the ribbon by Dame Mary Perkins, founder of Specsavers.

The atmosphere at the store was excellent, everyone was in high spirits, especially the staff and their VIP, Dame Mary. We took lots of team shots at the front of the store, along with the ribbon cutting ceremony. In support of Comic Relief, Specsavers are selling special red waving glasses, with all proceeds going to Comic Relief. Therefore, we could not resist the chance to snap the team modelling the glasses. 

Here are a few of the images. If you would like a quote for your event, please contact us on 01827 215 707 or click here to send us a message.


Professional Children Photos

Recording Precious Times with Professional Children Photos

Time flies by so quickly, especially when seeing your children growing up so fast. Recording this precious time with professional children photos is so special, as these photographs will be with you forever.

Even as the children get older and you update your family portraits, you will never part from your previous portraits. These photographs are allowing you to freeze this moment in time, to always look back on.

Below are some images from a recent photo shoot of brother (7) and sister (4) taken during the half term holidays. Before the shoot the eldest did not want his photo taken. Needless to say, mum was a little concerned to how the session would go. That soon changed though once he stepped in front of the camera, he loved it! His enthusiasm helped his sister’s shyness, which resulted in a great selection of portraits.

Photo shoot sessions are only £20. To book your shoot, call the studio on 01827 215 707, or scroll down to the enquiry form.

Wedding Photography, The Lord Leycester Hospital

Wedding Photography at The Lord Leycester Hospital, Warwick

The Lord Leycester Hospital is a stunning wedding venue in the heart of the ancient town of Warwick.

A traditional grade 1 listed building with many excellent features provides a stunning backdrop for wedding photography. Such as the Medieval Chapel, Great Hall and Masters Garden. The building’s architecture dating from 1126, offers an abundance of interesting textures and areas to stage some exquisite bridal portraiture.

In the history of the Lord Leycester, it is said that a banquet held for King James I, hosted in the great hall, left the town of Warwick in debt for a decade.

Here are few of our favourite images taken at a recent wedding we had the pleasure to provide photography for. A big thank you to Love Wedding Cars for their help in positioning the car so brilliantly.

Photograph Restoration

Damaged Photograph Restoration 

A customer popped into the studio recently enquiring about our Photograph Restoration service. He brought along a 50 year old photograph that had unfortunately been damaged.

The photograph held a lot of sentimental value, therefore you can appreciate how upset he was with the damage. A piece of the photograph had been ripped off, but luckily he had the piece. We gently applied the photograph and damaged piece to our equipment and got to work with the restoration.

We are all really pleased with the outcome, especially our customer. So much so, he left us this review “Restoration of damaged 50 yr old photo. Phil has done excellent repair looks better than original . Recomend for all photo work…”

Here are the before and after images.
