Family Studio Portrait

Studio Portrait Photography seemed to be a dying trade in these times of Mobile Phones and Uncle Bob with his new DSLR.   Surprisingly we are finding that people are now drifting back into the studio type portrait [because dear old uncle Bob can't produce that type of shot]

Our studio seems to be getting more and more requests for of these bookings for this type of work, mainly for the big family groups.  Here is one we did a few weeks ago for a local family which was a treat organised by Grandma.

On Sunday 19th May 2013, Helens Trust held Annual Fun Run inChatsworthPark, hosted by his grace the Duke of Devonshire.  And what a great day it was to hold the event.

Helens Trust – Fund Raising 28th April

This year Derbyshire Photographic has been fund raising for Helens Trust, which a Bakewell charity supporting  people with a terminal illness who have chosen to remain at home instead of going into a hospital.

At Christmas we raised £50 at a Santa’s Grotto, and were scheduled to run an Easter Bunny shoot which got cancelled due to the bad weather.  We eventually took part in the Bakewell Food Festival, where we set up a mini studio in the entrance to Bakewell Coop with a green screen and printing facilities, tight as it was, here are some of the shots taken.  The day raised £100 for the charity.

We are attending two further Charity Events for the trust in the one in May and another in October, watch out details on this Blog


High Moor Show – 21st April 2013

High Moor Open Horse Show held their first show of the season on  Sunday the 21st April.   The weather was bright but a little chilly with what I can only think was a record attendance of competitors.  We  attended minus out trusty van which was in for an expensive repair to its front calipers.   Undeterred we attended with three photographers and a laptop to download the images, and managed to cover most of the events rings.    The following day I downloaded over 2500 photos online for the shows members to view,  and hopefully purchase.  Here are some of them the rest can be found at our buy- online part of the website.
