New for 2013 – Postbox wedding photography

Standard

We’ve been asked so many times…. “Do you do weddings?  We love your work and would love you to photograph our wedding.”  Up until now the answer has been “No, sorry, we don’t”.   Since opening the studio Amy has had to put her wedding photography on hold.  Handling all the studio work alone for the first year was tough going but now……?  It’s time to get out there again!

We haven’t done any advertising yet but already have six weddings booked.  Experienced photographer, Steve Reynolds, is coming onboard and this pre wedding shoot in the snow shows the Postbox Studio wedding style.  (Thanks to Kathryn and Rob for braving the weather – we’re looking forward to your real wedding day in March)

If initial response to the announcement that ‘Postbox is going into Wedding Photography’ is anything to go by we will be booked up all over the summer.  So, if you would like to take advantage of our first year discounts (£100 off all these packages) please get in touch soon. info@amybestphotographer.com

Got to Dance

Standard

Sparkle Academy – Rawtenstall

What a fun shoot!  Dancers love to pose  and we love to turn their moves and poses into fun images.

Do you attend a dance class in Lancashire or West Yorkshire??  Or maybe your children do.  Tell your dance teacher about us – we’d love to come and do a shoot for you.  Also, as we give 10% of our profits from the shoot back to the dance group, it’s great fundraiser.

When a partner is needed…

Standard

So, 2012 was the year of the Postbox partnership. The year we, as a mother and daughter team (should be daughter and mother really – in terms of importance), took on the nurseries. We love toddlers in the studio but taking them on in their own environment is a different matter. Lights, background, toys all in place but no smiles! This is where the teamwork kicks in.

It’s quite difficult, as a photographer to coax a smile whilst looking through the lens.  Here’s when a partner is needed.  What child will not giggle when a green fluffy dinosaur decides to eat the photographer. Instant success -photography by Amy, puppetry by yours truly. Judging by the response from parents to our nursery images, we got it right! We like to give people variety so we offered at least 6 images of each child. And we like to keep up our studio standards so what we offer is, not just an ordinary nursery shoot but a mini portrait session.

We’re always looking to get in touch with new nurseries so if your child attends one in our area – Rochdale, Oldham, Bury or even further afield, why not recommend us?  We’d be happy to discuss any nursery/school requirements.
