Highlights

read more › My name is Dean, and I am a professional portrait photographer based in Bamber Bridge, Preston, Lancashire. I've been making professional portraits for well over 33 years now but my interest in photography came early in life - at around 10 years of age. I grew up in a family where one of my grandad's hobbies, other than fly fishing, was photography and I remember he used the downstairs bath to develop his black and white negatives (remember them?). I also remember the grief my granny gave him over the yellow stains he left in the enamel from the developing process!

If you have never had a professional shoot before, please see below some answers to various questions that I get. If you wish to know anything more before your sitting, please give me a call on 01772 334076 See you soon! The Sitting - The Portraits are taken in a relaxed and fun atmosphere to put everyone at ease. Please don't worry too much about your children misbehaving - I like a bit of character!

read more › Felt totally comfortable in the studio with Dean. Photos were shot very tastefully during maternity shoot. Great ideas for the newborn shoot that I wouldn't have thought of myself and Dean was very patient with our little lady that wouldn't cooperate for the most part! Got there in the end and totally happy with the shots - Thanks, Dean! We all enjoyed our portrait sitting, even those of us that hate having our photos taken, the kids in particular, we found, enjoyed the whole sitting and have become accomplished posers.

read more › This exclusive pregnancy plan is simply amazing. All ladies looking for a single image to record the creation of a new life need look no more, you've found it!. This pregnancy plan is the culmination of years of trial and error on my part in designing an image I can repeat time and time again for everyone who wants something different. One portrait session a month for 9 months, each one is set up like the last to create the ever-growing montage of 9 bump portraits. When born, a portrait session of baby and mum and an optional image with partner to match.

read more › BETA This is a new service - your feedback (Opens in a new window) will help us to improve it. PLEASE NOTE: We have found that it is not possible (at this time) to use a previously printed 45mm x 35mm professionally taken passport image. The reason is that the online system will reject the image when submitted as an uploaded file because it crops the image a second time and makes a closer image of your face, to large to use. We highly recommend if you wish to use the digital passport system you inform the photographer you require an image taken for digital passport submission.

read more › You need 2 identical printed photos if you are applying for a passport using a paper form. You must get a new photo when you get a new passport, even if your appearance has not changed. If you use a photo booth outside the UK, check it can give you photos that measure 45mm high by 35mm wide. Do not wear sunglasses or tinted glasses. If you wear glasses that you cannot take off, your eyes must be visible without any glare or reflections. The image of you - from the crown of your head to your chin - must be between 29mm and 34mm high.
