The Spring season continues with TWO Worcestershire Wedding  shows on Sunday February 3, in different parts of the county: St Andrew’s Town Hotel in Droitwich and The Abbey Hotel in Malvern.
Newly-refurbished St Andrew’s is a brand new venue in the I Will calendar, while The Abbey is a charming historic hotel with a stunning backdrop of the Malvern Hills.

With more than 25 years of experience ‘I Will’ know exactly what makes a successful Worcestershire wedding exhibition .

Kidderminster wedding fair postponed

Kidderminster wedding fair due to be held today (Sunday 20 th Jan 2013), has been postponed.

Yes, unfortunately  Kidderminster wedding photographer Bravo photography has to tell you that due to the snowy weather the Gainsborough House Hotel,  Kidderminster wedding fair has been postponed. Although the roads in Kidderminster itself are clear, the organiser, Sharon Addis points out that many of the exhibitors for this Kidderminster wedding fair. do come from  quite a wide ares and some of these exhibitors are still having trouble due to the state of the roads in their areas.

Once again I do have to commend the roads people as they have done a great job in clearing, and possibly more importantly, keeping clear the roads in Kidderminster. The other thing I have to comment on is how quiet the roads are which makes a very welcome change. The down side of all this though is that it does mean that people are not out and about spending in the shops and keeping the economy going. A quick trip to B&Q this evening proved the point point with this Kidderminster wedding photographer finding that having such a large store to himself was actually a bit un nerving!

Any way, the Gainsborough House Hotel, Kidderminster wedding fair has been rescheduled to Sunday 24 th February, 2013 11 am to 3.00pm. There will be a great selection of Worcestershire wedding suppliers attending including Worcestershire wedding photographer, Bravo photography. The Gainsborough House Hotel is located in a prime postion on the Bewdley road in Kiddeminster, Worcestershire and is easily reached from Birmingham and the West Midlands and even further afield being not too far from the M 5 motorway and the M42 motor way.

If you can’t wait for the February and the Gainsborough House Hotel, Kidderminster Wedding  fair then I will be at the Himley House Hotel wedding fair next Sunday 27th January.

 

Wedding Fair for Worcestershire Photographer

New Wedding Fair for Worcestershire Photographer

Worcestershire Photographer, Bravo Photography has just been invited to another wedding fair – this time at the Whittington Inn, Kinver. As usual there will be a good selection of Worcestershire wedding suppliers and Worcestershire Photographer Bravo Photography will have a fine display of albums.

Whittington in, Kinver

Whittington Inn, Kinver

This ancient building is a great place for a Worcestershire Photographer to capture great shots. To quote from their web site;

‘The Whittington is a majestic Grade I listed building, making it a truly historic public house. On entering you will pass the original 14th century door and walk through into a hallway made up of oak beams and archways. The variety of rooms, cosy snugs and old passages steeped in history mean that you are transported back to a bygone era when enjoying our delicious pub food or drink. With our function room we cater for a variety of private parties and banqueting from weddings to business meetings, and our highly skilled management team are always on hand to assist you with arrangements. Being located on the busy A449 in Kinver also means that we’re easily located so why not come and see what the Whittington Inn has to offer.’

This wedding fair which Worcestershire Photographer, Bravo Photography is being organised by Say I will Wedding Fayres. John and Nicola always put on a good show and it is well worth registering with them in advance. This means that not only will you get notice of forth coming wedding fayres but special exclusive special offers and sometimes even a bottle of fizz!

So if you need a Worcestershire Photographer or just want to come for a look, put the date in your diary now. You could also make me very envious by sitting out side just where I can see you and enjoy a nice Sunday lunch while I am busy talking to people!

 

New Wedding Photography Package

New Wedding Photography Package for Kidderminster, Worcestershire Photographer.

Yes, a new Wedding Photography package price from Kidderminster photographer, Bravo Photography. In response to a lot of requests recently for smaller wedding packages I have decided to offer a Ceremony Only price of just £295. This will cover up to two hours photography with all the fully finished Wedding Photography pictures supplied on a full resolution, copy right free disc.

Two hours Wedding Photography is just right to cover some of the preparations if you are getting ready at the venue or your guests arriving if you are getting ready else where. I will then get some shots of the groom looking nervous and then, of course the bride arriving. The Wedding Photography will then continue into the ceremony depending on the requirements of the registrar or vicar. By using only  top quality cameras, lenses and other equipment I can take brilliant quality Wedding Photography very discreetly during the ceremony to really capture the atmosphere. There is usually an opportunity to stage some slightly more formal Wedding Photography after the wedding register has been signed and then it is outside for some confetti and group shots.

I always make sure that I am well organised for the family Wedding Photography group shots by drawing up a quick family tree so I know who the most important people are and make sure that I photograph them all quickly and efficiently. There is usually an opportunity to get a big group shot of all your guests together before I take the happy couple aside for some really nice creative wedding photography. If we have not done so already then it is time for some confetti and then a couple of nice shots in the car before you are whisked off to your reception.

Yes, all this wedding photography for just £295.

Worcestershire photography tuition

Worcestershire photography tuition by Bravo Photography.

Just got a new DSLR, need some Worcestershire photography tuition? Well you might have a new camera but I bet in  a few days (yes, I am writing this just before Christmas), there are going to be an awful lot of people wanting Worcestershire photography tuition.

Just picture the scene – piles of wrapping paper, excited children, and a brand new camera, much more sophisticated than any you have had before. A very common scenario I am sure with the price of Digital Single Lens Reflex cameras – OK, DSLRs getting cheaper and cheaper there are going to be an awful lot of new Worcestershire photography experts about soon.  But hold on a moment, maybe they are not quite as simple as they make out, what are all these buttons? What do all the letters on this dial mean? How do I put the battery in? Actually I have not made the last one up and is, in fact personal experience! When I got my first DSLR I actually spent ages trying to get the battery into the camera with the battery cover still attached! Hmmm… and her I am offering Worcestershire photography tuition.

Well that is exactly why I am offering Worcestershire photography tuition as I know all too well the potential pitfalls and problems that await the newly armed digital photographer. The important thing though, is that I have over come these problems to become a successful, professional Worcestershire photography expert. Not only that but being a qualified trainer with many years in a previous life designing and delivering training courses I am well placed to pass on this knowledge to up and coming Worcestershire photography experts.

So once you have puzzled over your new camera for long enough, give me a call to arrange a bit of one to one, or if you have a friend in similar trouble then one to two or more!), tuition. I always believe in giving the very best value for money so prices really are scary!

 

Kidderminster Photographer studio portriats after Christmas

Kidderminster Photographer suggests after Christmas portrait session to fill that  time before New Year.

Kidderminster Photographer, Bravo Photography of Worcestershire has a bright idea to fill that gap between Christmas and New Year – a family portrait session. I actually rather like that bit of down time at the very end of December but early January sales excepted it can be rather hard to find some thing to do. A brisk walk of course always fits the bill but with the weather forecast as it is at the moment I fear that might not be such a good idea this year. So why not book a session with Kidderminster Photographer, Bravo Photography near Worcester.

Kidderminster Photographer, Bravo Photography has a lovely little studio in a out building behind my house right by Kidderminster railway station there is also has plenty of parking space available if you are not coming by train.  There are lots of advantages of booking a session with a Kidderminster Photographer at this time of year. If you have  children who are  at   university or college, they might be all at home – when was the  last time you had a good picture of all of you together. There might even be other family staying with you – what a great opportunity.

A big plus of getting a portrait  done at this time of year with Kidderminster Photographer, Bravo Photography is that it could be a the basis for a ready made Christmas card for next year or a Thank You card for this year. I can  supply images on disc (unlike a lot of Worcestershire Photographer s ), for you to make your own or if you are not that creative then I can always design a card for you.

Don’t delay – give Kidderminster Photographer, Bravo Photography a ring to see what availability is left.

Worcestershire Portrait Photographer has Studio for Hire

Worcestershire Portrait Photographer has Studio available for Hire.

Always one for making the most of assets, this Worcestershire Portrait Photographer has realised that he is sitting on one very useful one that could also be very useful to up and coming Worcestershire Portrait Photographer s. While my studio in Kidderminster is quite busy there are always times (thankfully!), when it is not in use. Well, I do need some time to process all the lovely photographs I take. So, when I am not using it, someone else could be.

Conveniently situated in an out building behind my house, Worcestershire Portrait Photographer studio is small but well equipped being ideal for individual portraits, family groups or small to medium product photography. Now to get a little bit technical. There is a good range of Elinchrom lighting ranging from BX 100 to BX and FX 400’s mounted on sliding ceiling rails making them super easy to reposition for maximum creativity and productivity. There is also some constant lighting which is ideal for low aperture portraits or product work.

The lighting is supported by a good range of light modifiers for the Worcestershire Portrait Photographer to get really creative. I have got different sized soft boxes, umbrellas, both shoot through and reflective, snoot, barn doors with filters and probably a bit more I can’t remember at the moment.

The back grounds will be of particular interest to the Worcestershire Portrait Photographer and consists of a very large Lastolite Hi Lite for easy and effective Hi Key photography. There is also additional lighting for the floor for perfect portrait photography. The Worcestershire Portrait Photographer will also appreciate the roller back ground system with three separate clothe back drops which can be raised or lowered with ease. I have black for brilliant, moody low key work, grey, which can be used as is or lit to any colour with filters and green to let your imagination run wild with green screen.

So if you are a budding Worcestershire Portrait Photographer get in touch and lets talk about you hiring some time in my portrait studio.

Kidderminster Photographer has DVD available now.

Kidderminster Photographer has school play DVD available now.

Kidderminster Photographer, Bravo Photography has just made available video DVD of Sytchampton First School, Worcestershire Christmas play, A Wriggly Nativity. It is available from the main web site for just £6 which includes postage direct to any address (in the UK!), that you specify. Of course I can post to anywhere but postage will be charged at cost so please let me know before ordering. Being a Christmas play it was staged just before Christmas so this does make things a little bit difficult for a Kidderminster Photographer to guarantee that discs will arrive before Christmas but I will do my best – you need to get your skates on though! I have to admit that it is now too late to get any disc to America or even anywhere as far flung as France or Spain now without resorting to a special courier which I guess is just not really even worth considering.

What a lovely present this would make for one of the children’s Grand Parents and if they are lucky children they might have lots of Grand parents so even more scope for ordering discs. It must be pointed out that this shameless pushing (worth of  a double glazing salesman), is all in a good cause. All monies (minus the rather miniscule cost of the discs and of course any postage), is going direct to the Sytchampton Endowed First School, Worcestershire, Parent Teacher Association funds. This Association really does do a terrific job in providing some very worth while extra amenities and services for this lovely little school just on the A449 between Worcester and Kidderminster where I have to admit, this Kidderminster Photographer takes his daughter every day.

So, to buy a copy just click on ‘view and buy’ on the main site and away you go.

Worcestershire Photographer does something a bit different

Worcestershire Photographer does something a bit different – video for a change!

Yes, today this Worcestershire Photographer did something a little bit different and quite enjoyed it.

It is that time of year again that every parent really looks forward to (it is up to you to decide if I am being sarcastic or not!), Christmas and that means the school Christmas play. In all fairness, I don’t dread them as much as I used to as from all the schools that I have been involved with over the years my daughters current one puts on by far the best and most inventive shows. Well, last week the call went out for someone with a video camera to record this years performance. ‘I am a Worcestershire Photographer’ I thought, but I don’t have a video camera. Hang on a sec, yes I do.

Since upgrading to my current main camera, the Canon 5d Mk 3, I am still getting used to the massive range of functions it has to offer the Worcestershire Photographer. One of these functions is, of course, full HD video recording. I must admit that I had never considered this function to be of much use but I may be just a little bit wrong about this – even a Worcestershire Photographer can’t be right all the time! One fact that did really sway me in my opinion is that I found out that a lot of movies, even some big budget one such as Black Swan are now being shot with them.

The big advantage for the Worcestershire Photographer that this system has over a standard video camera is the ability to use a wide variety of top quality lenses with them and to use such features as variable aperture with ease for great cinematic effects.

Not that this Worcestershire Photographer was doing anything like that today – just getting the kids singing beautifully was enough.
