Box Family Portrait

New Website Under Development

I have decided it is now time to update the look and functionality of my website. The first thing that will change is the theme which will determine the look and feel of the website, and to hopefully showcase my photographs in a better less cluttered way.

The second thing to change will be the functionality. I have been able to sell photographs from gallery pages in the past with paypal integration, but have never been entirely happy with the way it worked. I hopefully now have found a better solution, it seems a lot easier to use and is tried and tested – I only wish I had found it before I installed the last solution some time ago.

There will be a transition period where testing will take place and some fine tuning no doubt, but I am in the process of editing and adding new photographs and galleries, the completed side will be published very soon. Off for bed time reading now on photographers SEO 🙂 should be fun?

The family portrait sitting was shot in November and was really good fun, the photographs are sorted edited and now available to view in The Family Portrait Gallery 

A range of photographic products are available to purchase and can conveniently be ordered direct from the page. Here are just a couple of sneak peaks 😀

Calendar 2011 – Support Our Forces

On Sale NOW – for £9.99  100% of the profit of the calendar will go to Families Activities Breaks, an MOD charity providing holidays and support to the bereaved families of our service personnel – lets make a difference to Forces families this Christmas

Earlier in the year I was asked to participate in the production of a charity Calendar, we spent a day in the Encore Ramada Hotel in pride park Derby, with a group of  models hair and make-up artists and a couple of photographers.
The result of all the work is a 2011 Calendar.
The original concept of recreating iconic images with a sexy military twist was something that we would not have been able to achieve without the skills of some awesome friends and supporters.
The calendar is £9.99 + £1.00 p&p. We are aiming to raise £10,000.

If anybody would like a copy please get in touch on either number above, or using the online contact form.

Alternatively visit to order one direct.

Thank you
