Kids Photo Shoot

Kids Photo Shoot before School 

We recently welcomed this lovely little man came to the studio for a kids photo shoot before he takes his next big step in the world – starting school.

Mum wanted photos of her little prince ahead of the next chapter of his journey. At 4 years old, he was so confident in front of the camera and loved every minute he was in the studio. Coming up with different sayings with Phil, instead of “cheese”, and shouting them as loudly as he could. Our favourite has got be ‘cheeky carrots’. We used several different backdrops and poses, which created an excellent set of images to choose from. Below are just a few of our favourites.

We wish our ‘cheeky carrots little man’ every success, fun and happiness in his journey through school.

If you would like to book a photo shoot session, please call Phil and Vicky on 01827 215 707, or scroll down to the enquiry form.

Invisible Mannequin

Invisible Mannequin Photography for On-line Sales

For advertising your products, professional photography is a must. An excellent and effective way to demonstrate garments is Invisible Mannequin, or ghost photography as it is also known.

Majority of sales are now done online. With so much competition in the marketplace, you need your product to stand out from the rest. Invisible mannequin demonstrates exactly how your garment looks modelled, without an actual model. Although, modelled shots are great, this can put off potential customers if being modelled by a young, slim, (airbrushed), beauty. As I am sure we have all experienced at some point, body image insecurity can be a terrible thing. I know that I have looked at outfits before, and assume that it would not suit me because I am not a size 8, tall, slim blonde, therefore not made the purchase.

With invisible mannequin, you are demonstrating just the garment. This allows the consumer to visualise themselves wearing it, with no comparison to anyone else. Below are some example images recently supplied to one of our clients.

Pet Photo Shoot

Pet Photo Shoot with Barney and Stanley

A couple of days a week, we have our four legged friends, Barney and Stanley, spend some time with us whilst their owners are busy at work. Phil had the pooches in the studio recently for a pet photo shoot session to try out some new props.

Stanley, a King Charles Spaniel, loves the camera. He always get excited when he sees Phil’s camera, striking a pose. He loved the blanket in the suitcase, and got himself very comfortable to the point he was close to having a nap on the job! Barney, a Shih Tzu, is not so keen, often refusing to look at the camera. He was still a good sport though and sat lovely for his shoot. He is happiest lying under Vicky’s desk chilling out.

We love having pets in the studio, whether they are included in a family photo shoot session or for a shoot dedicated to just them. If you would like to book a pet photo shoot session, call Phil and Vicky on 01827 215 707. Or scroll down to the enquiry and we will get back to you.

Baby Portraits

10 Week Old Baby Portraits

We recently welcomed the Redman family to the studio for baby portraits of their 10 week old gorgeous princess.

She was a little star throughout the shoot, with lots of smiles and happy with her different outfit changes. We got the studio nice and cosy so she was comfortable with her ‘au-natural’ shots. Using different textures of blankets and throws, we created an excellent variety of images. Mum and dad also had a few shots too, which were stunning. Below are a few images from the shoot.

Baby photo shoot sessions are only £20. If you would like to book your session, please call Vicky and Phil on 01827 215 707, or scroll down to the enquiry form.

Bump to Baby Photography

Bump to Baby Photography, including the Family Dog

We recently had the pleasure of shooting the Fisher family’s very exciting time with our Bump to Baby Photography.

On 27th May, Mum-to-be came to the studio for a maternity photo shoot. She brought along her partner, 8 month old daughter and 5 month old Dogue de Bordeaux, Fury. This offered a great variety of images, as we captured photographs of the whole family’s excitement awaiting the arrival of their new edition. We produced some excellent shots of big sister on her own, and also with Fury. Whilst Fury wasn’t in front of the camera, he was in the office with Vicky, pulling her round on the office chair.  For the record, he is nothing like his name, absolutely soft as anything.

After the safe arrival of their little prince, the family returned to the studio on 5th July for their Newborn photo shoot. This shoot was focused mainly on the little man. However, we did capture some beautiful portraits with his big sister and mum. Below are a few of our favourite images from the two shoots.

We love seeing families grow. It really does mean so much to us when families return to the studio to update their family portraits. 

Maternity photo shoot sessions are only £20. As we would love you to return with your new addition, we offer a Newborn Photo Shoot voucher with every maternity shoot.  To book please contact the studio on 01827 215 707 or scroll down to the enquiry form.

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 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.

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.

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.
