High Moor Open horse Show – 14th July 2013

High Moor show on the 14th July was a scorcher, with a reasonable turnout of competitors.  With extra staff on this show we were able to cover the minimus ring.  Here are some of the photographs taken on the day.


Glossopdale Community College Year 11 Prom

Glossopdale Community College, year 11 Prom was our last Prom for the season, with around 170 students attending.  In the past we have struggled with large number groups who want to be photographed using our standard background.  To combat this, and at his event, we used a new 4 meter black backdrop, which can now easily accommodate the larger groups.  For this prom we used our standard Grey/Blue canvas backdrop for individuals and small groups, which is great for dress details and the new 4 meter backdrop for the large groups.  To speed printing up we had all three of our print/sales stations working most of the night.  Here are some of the photos, the rest are online at.  these are password protected, details can be obtained from the school.


50th Birthday Party

A 50th Birthday Party with differences at the Palace Hotel, all the guests turned up in fancy dress and had a wonderful time. We supplied the Studio and the guest book package we offer, where each guest gets a free photo, courtesy of the host in a mount, to take home, and a second is placed in a guest book, inviting party goers to leave suitable comment to the host. Fabulous costumes here are some of them:-


Lady Manors Year 11 PROM 2013

LadyManorsSchool, held their Year 11 Prom at Palace Hotel on Friday 28th June.  The weather was wasn’t too kind for arrivals; most of the arrivals had to dash for the hotels doors, to avoid the rain.  Unfortunately we missed out on the usual lawn group photos, but we did manage a few outside shots.

This Prom had a James Bond theme, so we took along our green screen background, to produce the Bond theme backdrops, together with a smaller formal background to show off the dresses.

Dogs Unleashed 2013 – Dog Portraits

Dogs Unleashed 2013 is an Annual two day Dog Show, aimed at dogs of any description, held on Bakewell Showground 22nd & 23rd June, allowing them to take part in all the various doggy events the show had to offer  [For more information about Dog Unleashed go to ]

This was our second year with this wonderful two day show, where we offered Free Dog Portrait sessions to all visitors and competitors, using studio lighting and backdrops in our Portrait Tent.  Dogs and Babies are not the world’s easiest subjects to capture, without a bit of patience, but after several photos had been taken, the owner could, without obligation, view the images in our photo van and get a print to take home with them.  Things like leads and blemishes, being quickly removed in Photoshop prior to printing.   All photographs taken on the over the two days are still available at Derbyshire Photographic for owners but have not been put on-line

If anyone is interested in Dog Portraits we have been invited to attend another dog show at Bakewell on Sunday 25th August 2013,  The FESTIBULL Dog Show, where we will be offering the same dog portraits to visitors at the show.

Here are some of the dog portraits, taken over the two days at Dogs Unleashed 2013.      Due to space on the blog, there are more of these  images on my Facebook page, use the logo on this website to navigate there.



Sara and Darren Wright of the Miners Standard, Winster, got married at  St JohnsChurchon the 15th June, on a beautiful sunny day.  We attended covered the days formal wedding photography.  The wedding was a late one, the service taking place at 4pm.  Despite this the weather was kind to us all day, allowing photographs to be taken up to 7pm

As part of our wedding package, the couple decided to give ‘wedding favours’ to all their guests in the form of a free photograph, taken at the reception in our wedding photo studio.   Photographs taken on the night are printed immediately after the shot within 12 seconds. A second identical photo, is put into a guest book, we invite the guest to leave a suitable comments for the happy couple.  At these events we always take with us some fancy dress items, which became the highlight of the night for some.

At the end of the night we handed the guest book, photos and comments,to the Sara and Darren.  Sara the bride, on viewing it, shed a small tear, delighted with the result.
