Our new Sheffield Photography Studio

So finally we have finished the move to our fabulous new photography studio, in the grand surroundings of the Stable Block at Renishaw Hall, near Sheffield. It’s been a hard slog.  We’ve moved all the equipment ourselves in stages and fully painted and repaired both old and new studios ourselves, all to minimise disruption to our customers.  We must thank our parents for all the help with the painting, floor-laying and making of teas and coffees to enable us to open so quickly and efficiently.     There are a few little bits to finish and a fresh new set of wall art to invest in, but we’re ready and eager to receive customers old and new. So do pop in and see us soon (the coffee pot is always on) or call us on our new number 0114 4040898 to book in your photo session.  Make a day of it – Renishaw Hall & Gardens are beautiful and well worth a visit whilst you are here.  We look forward to seeing you.

Hollywood Glamour Photo shoot

Here’s a few images from our recent Hollywood Glamour inspired photography session. There will be more to follow from this session in another post, as we also managed to squeeze in a second fashion photography session on the same day,with a completely different theme. I love these types of shoots as it gives me chance to get the creative juices going, particularly when it comes to the editing and retouching. It’s also fantastic to work with talented hair and makeup artists as well, which makes such an incredible difference to the overall look and feel of the finished images. Special thanks to Amy McCullach for the hair styling, Amanda Humphreys for the makeup, and our models, Niamh and Jess.          

The wedding of Mr and Mrs Clark

Well our wedding season is all but over, with just a couple more albums to create once the couples have chosen their favourites. Time for us to get posting blogs again. We’ll start with Ryan and Natalie’s wedding in Prestbury. The village is absolutely beautiful, and the perfect setting for a wedding.   I’ve been blessed with the most wonderful wedding couples over the years, and Ryan and Natalie were no exception. Ryan recently took the brave move to end his career as a city banker, and carried out self-funded training program to become a qualified airline pilot. A fantastic achievement and a testament to the strength of their relationship that Ryan could take such a dramatic change of career, knowing that Natalie would support him 100%. We were in a similar situation 6 years ago when I gave up my career in the chemical industry to pursue this dream. I must give credit to my wife, Allie, at this point, and say there’s no way I could’ve done it without her. So I’ve no doubt that this early demonstration of Ryan and Natalie’s strength and support for each other will mean they will have a very long and amazing […]

A scorching hot day in Cambridge

So off we went to Cambridge yesterday for a wedding of our friends, Lizzie and Michael. Allie has known Lizzie for many years now, and we were honoured to be asked to photograph their wedding for them. We had the pleasure of also being guests at the wedding, which was just lovely. The wedding venue was in the stunning grounds of Michael’s old college in the centre of Cambridge. It was the hottest day of the year, and the bride looked incredible – all the right ingredients for a great day of photography. Wishing them both a fabulous honeymoon and we’ll look forward to showing you all the images when you get back.

The Citrus House, Rhodes – 360 panoramics

We went to Rhodes a few months ago for a quick holiday with the kids. We stayed in the beautiful Citrus House, which is owned by some very good friends of ours. Since Google will not allow 360 virtual tours of holiday villas we have created and hosted the panoramics ourselves. Please have a look around and visit The Citrus House website for more information:   [pano file="http://www.chrysalisphotography.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/Google_360_virtual_tour_Sheffield_001.swf" width="630" height="450" panobox="off"]     [pano file="http://www.chrysalisphotography.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/Google_360_virtual_tour_Sheffield_005.swf" width="630" height="450" panobox="off"]     [pano file="http://www.chrysalisphotography.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/Google_360_virtual_tour_Sheffield_007.swf" width="630" height="450" panobox="off"]     [pano file="http://www.chrysalisphotography.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/Google_360_virtual_tour_Sheffield_006.swf" width="630" height="450" panobox="off"]     [pano file="http://www.chrysalisphotography.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/Google_360_virtual_tour_Sheffield_002.swf" width="630" height="450" panobox="off"]     [pano file="http://www.chrysalisphotography.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/Google_360_virtual_tour_Sheffield_003.swf" width="630" height="450" panobox="off"]     [pano file="http://www.chrysalisphotography.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/Google_360_virtual_tour_Sheffield_004.swf" width="630" height="450" panobox="off"]     [pano file="http://www.chrysalisphotography.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/Google_360_virtual_tour_Sheffield_008.swf" width="630" height="450" panobox="off"]     [pano file="http://www.chrysalisphotography.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/Google_360_virtual_tour_Sheffield_009.swf" width="630" height="450" panobox="off"]
