Special Products

We thought it would be a good idea to talk about some of the additional products we have to offer here at the studio. 
Our most recent addition is a very smart USB stick in either baby pink, baby blue or black as shown below. Many of our customers have chosen one of these sticks once they have finished their schemes and chosen a a designated number of images in low resolution to view on their laptop or digital device. High resolution images may also be purchased but cost a little more.  
Alternatively you could choose a selection of your favourite images from your sessions and have them displayed in a bespoke personalised storybook album complete with presentation box. Again these come in a selection of colours and designs.
For more information on either of these products please call 01271 344480 and we will be pleased to discuss your requirements.  

Studio Props

We love our customers to bring in their own props for shoots here in the studio whether it be a baby or a kids/family session. We have a selection of towels, fluffy blankets, teddies, hats, bricks, sit on toys and much more to use depending on the studio session. It is however lovely to bring in your own props to really personalise your sitting and maybe use the same one throughout if taking part in one of our baby schemes. 
Here are a few images from sessions where customers have brought in their own props.

For all your photographic requirements

Here at Alan Schofield photography we don’t just take photographs here at the studio or cover weddings throughout the country but try to deal with most photographic needs such as copying old photographs or paintings, framing, passports, scans, album design and much more. If you require any of the above or have a particular requirement please don’t hesitate to contact us on 01271 344480.

Generations Portrait Sitting

With the First World War commemorations in everyone’s thoughts at the moment, we wanted to share with you an image from a sitting we did last week of four generations of the same family.
Why not include Grandparents and maybe even Great Grandparents in your next photo shoot, it will be a lasting memory that you will treasure for years to come…
Call us today on 01271 344480 to book your generations portrait session.

Passports

There have been many problems encountered over the past month or so with the passport office with huge delays in processing. We try and do our best here at the studio by providing a swift and professional passport photography service to make the whole process of applying for a passport as stress-free as possible. An express same day service can be provided if arranged in advance but generally the photos can be collected or posted within 2 days of being taken. The cost for the sitting and four photos (printed to the required size re different countries) is £10.00.
