Wedding at The Plough and Harrow, Birmingham

Wedding Photography for Jasmin and Klaus

On 3 June 2017, we had the pleasure of providing the wedding photography for Jasmin and Klaus at The Plough and Harrow Hotel in Birmingham. 

The happy couple were joined by their family and friends, many of which had flown in from Germany. The ceremony was held at St Dunstan’s in Kings Heath, Birmingham. Followed by Reception at the stunning Plough and Harrow Hotel. The hotel’s Victorian architecture offers a beautiful backdrop to group photos and Bridal portraiture. We very much like working at this venue, the staff are excellent to work alongside and co-ordinated with great precision. 

The day was very relaxed, and thoroughly enjoyed by all. As the couple are from Germany, some of their customs were incorporated in their day. Such as having the speeches in between courses, which worked really well. One of our customs that did take them by surprise was when I jumped in the front seat of the car to take their photo before leaving the chapel. This is one of my favourite shots, so it had to be done. 

Below are few of our favourite shots from the day. We would like to thank Jasmin and Klaus for choosing Philip Charles Photography and wish you all the best for your future together.

Bain Marie Product Photography

Photography Images for Bain Marie

One of our existing clients, Catering Base, recently required product photography images of a Bain Marie for advertising on their website. The images were to be on a white background, and demonstrate the many different combinations available.

As catering supplies are mostly stainless steel, this is always a photographic challenge as we need to avoid any reflections. Add to that the white background. At Philip Charles Photography, we relish a challenge. The brief we received was to provide images that show the functions of the Bain Marie, the depth of the trays, and general versatility of the product. The images will be used on their website and other media platforms to market and sell the product. Below are a small sample of the finished images.

Professional product photography is worth every penny, and guarantee a return on your investment. If you require professional images of your products, contact the studio on 01827 215 707 for a free no obligation quote.

Photography Studio in Atherstone

New Photography Studio Now Open in Atherstone

We are proud to announce that the new Philip Charles Photography studio is now open in Atherstone, Warwickshire.

As a little bit of background, Philip Charles Photography was founded nearly 10 years ago by Phil, and was joined by wife Vicky in 2015. Based in Tamworth, tucked away on a farm, our studio was a little tricky to be found. The studio was small, but great for what we did, taking photographs. Over time, the studio became busier, which was awesome, but we soon outgrew the space and needed to find larger premises. 

So here we are, in our new studio in the lovely market town of Atherstone, just outside Tamworth. The shop was originally a hairdressers, so everything had to be stripped out and redesigned. Walls have been built, flooring has been laid, and goodness knows how many gallons of paint we have gone through! It took 2 months of late nights, blood, sweat and tears, but it was worth every minute.

We now have:

Reception 

Dressing Room

Client Area and Image Viewing Room

The Studio

 

We do all types of photography including large family groups, newborn, babies, professional headshots, pets, products etc… Whatever you need photographing, we can do it.

For all enquiries you can call Phil and Vicky on 01827 215 707, drop into the studio at 128 Long Street, Atherstone or fill in the enquiry form. We look forward to hearing from you.

Atherstone Photography Studio Opening Event

Photography Studio Official Opening in Atherstone

On Saturday 10th June 2017, we officially opened our new photography studio in Atherstone, Warwickshire.

To help celebrate our opening, we were joined by our family, friends, clients and local residents. We also had a special guest appearance by Gary Poulton from BBC’s The Apprentice. Gary made it to week 11 of the popular series in 2015. We kick started the day with the official cutting of the ribbon by Gary, with ourselves, Phil and Vicky. During the day we were giving away balloons, cake, and goody bags.

In honour of local dog rehoming charity, Dun-Roamin, we hosted a raffle. 1st prize was a coffee machine set, 2nd prize was a hamper of goodies donated by Dun-Roamin, and 3rd prize a box of chocolates. The raffle raised £59. The lucky winners were drawn at the end of the day, and all very happy to collect their prizes. Below are a few photos from the day.

We have relocated to this lovely market town from Tamworth. Our new premises is larger, with separate reception, image viewing room, dressing room and large studio space. If you are looking to update your family portraits, photo shoot sessions are only £20. For more information, or to book, either call the studio on 01827 215 707 or scroll down to the enquiry form.
