Baby’s First Birthday Shoot

Photoshoot Session for Baby’s First Birthday

We recently welcomed the Rowe family to the studio for a family and baby photo shoot session to celebrate their little one’s first birthday.

The session was the day before her birthday and she was certainly full of big smiles. Mum and Dad had a few shots for their family portrait, but the main focus was on the birthday girl. They brought along a couple of outfit changes and her favourite teddy to incorporate in the shoot. Our tin bath was a firm favourite, and we got some great shots of her cheeky look.

A photo shoot session is an excellent idea for a special birthday and occasion. Mum and dad will always have these precious photographs of their little girl’s first birthday to cherish.

Modelled Product Photography

Modelled Product Photography for your Business

Investing in professional photography for your online sales is an absolute must, turning your browsers into purchasers. An excellent way to showcase your product is incorporating modelled product photography. 

Having a combination of product shots of the product alone and modelled shots allows your buyers to see exactly what your product does instantly. Research shows that web browsers on average leave a web page within 3 seconds. Therefore, you need to catch their eye and capture their attention immediately. Clear, professional images will do exactly that. 

One of our recent clients approached us to provide images of a yoga mat bag. She wanted clear product shots on a white background for use on Amazon. To showcase the bag fully, we provided images of the bag with a model. These images demonstrate the bag in use, encouraging browsers to make that purchase. We also provided some modelled shots in situ for use on her own website.

Wedding In Tamworth Castle Grounds

Wedding of Kirsty and Tahir in Tamworth Castle Grounds

On 20th April we had the pleasure of providing the wedding photography for Kirsty and Tahir. The ceremony and reception was hosted by the well known Castle Hotel, Tamworth with photographs being taken in the iconic Tamworth Castle Grounds.

The ceremony was held in the Wedgewood suite. The Bride’s brother was very emotional seeing his sister say her vows, which even brought a lump to our throat. Following the ceremony, the whole wedding party made the short walk down to the Tamworth Castle Grounds for the photos. Thankfully, the weather was on our side. It was a beautiful day, which was a relief to avoid the typical April showers. The Castle Grounds is an excellent location for photography. The layered colourful flowerbeds provide a superb backdrop for the group shots. The historic features of the Castle, obelisk, and Lady Bridge create stunning Bridal portraiture.

We all then headed back to the Hotel to carry on the celebrations in to the evening.

We wish Kirsty and Tahir a long and happy future together, and thank you for choosing Philip Charles Photography to record your special day. Below are a few shots from the day.

If you would like to talk to us about your wedding photography, please call Phil and Vicky on 01827 215 707, or scroll down to the contact form.

Large Family Photographs Specialist

Midlands Studio Specialist in Large Family Photographs

There are many excellent photography studios around the Midlands, but not all can accommodate more than 6 in one session. Located in the heart of the Midlands, the Philip Charles Photography studio specialises in large family photographs, comfortably shooting a group of 15.

At the start of the session, you will be welcomed to the studio and given sole use of our green room for leaving your belongings safely. Once the whole family has arrived, Phil will take you through to the studio, which is where the fun begins. With Phil’s wealth of experience and expertise he will set you up in different compositions to give you a good variety of images to choose from. Once the big family portraits have been shot, Phil will break the group down into smaller groups and combinations. For example, grandparents with all the grandchildren, parents and children, children only, couples etc…

At the end of the photo shoot session you will be invited to return to the studio a few days later for your presentation of images with Vicky. All of the photos are printed, rather than shown on a screen, which allows you to easily compare and choose your favourites. Below are a few of our large family portraits.

If you would like to book a family photo shoot session, you can call the studio on 01827 215 707, or scroll down to the enquiry form.


Office Exercise Equipment

Product Photography for Office Exercise Equipment

One of the exciting elements of being a commercial photographer, is seeing new inventions and ideas. We love helping new businesses kick start their venture. A couple of recent products we received to photograph was office exercise equipment. 

There was a DeskCycle and an iXbike. The idea is that these pieces of equipment can be used whilst working at your desk. When advertising your products, the images need to clearly explain visually what it is and what it is does. We took shots of several different angles on a white background, to clearly show the product with nothing else in the shot to distract the eye. Our client also wanted shots of the equipment in use as a demonstration. Again, the shots were kept clear and focused on the product, keeping props to a minimum.   

The images will be used on their website, eCommerce and marketing campaigns. For more information on our commercial photography services for your business, click here. If you would like a quote, please call the studio on 01827 215 707, or click here to contact us
