MIKE BLACKBURN - PHOTOGRAPHER


If you've ever paid for a studio portrait sitting you may have been left feeling underwhelmed. You might have been bossed around, twisted into various contortions and left with a cold and clinical set of photos that mean nothing to you emotionally.

Instead I will deliver to you beautiful studio-quality photographs from the calm and relaxed comfort of your own home or an outdoor setting that actually means something to you and your family and connects with you - capturing your memories and those important, unmissable milestones in everyone's lives.

I specialise in child and family portraits, and being a dad I know that a successful photo or portfolio will reveal the child's personality and character and allow parents to treasure that moment forever. I have experience from newborns to older children and families, and I know how important it is to capture and keep those fleeting moments.

Pets are also an important part of the family and my pet portraits will reveal the love and affection between owner and animal and your pet's unique personality. Dogs, cats, horses, even fish - we love them all!

If you have an event or a business you want recording I am an extremely versatile photographer who will deliver the quality portfolio that you want, how you want it. People and images make a business successful and with my background in journalism and public relations I can help put your business ahead.

I will always discuss with the client what he or she expects from a session and how much or how little retouching you might want for your finished portraits. The finished product will be delivered as high quality prints which can also be framed in a frame style of your choice or as high resolution files ready for use on social media or websites.

Take a look at my portfolios for examples of my versatile work in all these areas. Full packages start from £75, with a basic package available for £55. You can contact me to talk about your own sitting at mikeblackburnphotography@gmail.com

Fine art prints are also available for purchase. These are professionally printed and mounted in a variety of standard sizes.
