About Us

As an independent Photographic Studio established in 1999 Derbyshire Photographic have over the years, built up a first class reputation for producing high quality photographs, in both Studio, Social and Event Photography.    In October 2010 our business expanded into Event Photography and now makes up for over 70% of our business.

Outdoor Event Photography     We use an Ex Dorset Library Van to cover our outdoor events, which has installed full 240v Electricity system for running the IT Equipment, which include 3 touch screen computers,  servers and monitors and heat thermal printers.   The van is self sufficient, running its own electricity by means of a large marine inverter/charger and two large batteries.  We also have a small generator available to top up the batteries as and when needed.   This allows the van to operate independently of a mains hook-up for up to 10 hours without recharge, [indefinitely with the generator]  making it ideal for any outdoor events.    The van comes complete with auxiliary heating, lighting and an awning, making it an ideal point of sale station for events,  especially in cold inclement weather.


Indoor Event Photography – and how it all works.    On the day of your event we arrive an hour before the event starts to set up our equipment and mini studio.  With our set-up we use professional cameras with wireless,  to transmit images from camera to computer.  Customers can then visit the sales stations to view the image that has just been taken, and have it printed.  We use fast professional heat thermal printers to produce our prints in under 15 seconds, they come ready to handle [no drying time] and are laminated making them waterproof.    The quality is as good if not better than the ones you can buy in the High Street, with the added advantage that its been taken by a professional photographer using  studio lighting.

With our  many years studio and portrait experience,  we have built up skills in lighting and posing techniques,  this together with a  large amount of  high quality professional studio lighting equipment and backdrops have  allowed us to create a truly portable studio service with an armoury of backdrops and lighting set-ups,  suitable for most indoor events,  large or small.
