What You Get


 Photography can capture a moment in a person’s life that is for ever. A good picture will capture the personality of someone, not just their appearance. Here at Shutters Photographic Services (SPS) we strive to do just that whether it is a portrait of a new born baby, family portrait, pet or corporate photoshoot the same care and attention will go into all the pictures you receive. For every photoshoot may have hours of post photo editing to get that photo just right. We can manipulate your photos to give you all kinds of special effects if you wish, many of which are on my Facebook page, or you can have just a traditional portrait, it is up to you.  

  SPS are based in Darwen, Lancashire and offer a professional photography services for any occasion at affordable prices.

To find out more get in touch for a FREE consultation.

From every photoshoot you will receive 

  • A contact sheet of every photo      taken (straight out of camera and not altered in any way). 
  • A cd of every photo taken (small low resolution water marked) so you can take a closer look and then choose  which photos you like and those you don’t.
  • A request form that you can fill  out to let me know which you want printed, saved enlarged etc. also Many special affects you may wish.

What I do!



   I will often visit the venue beforehand so that I can get a good understanding of where the best pictures can be taken from. Some venues have restrictions or don't allow flash photography  during ceremonies.

  I shoot in a documentary style; I think this really captures the essence of the day.  I will take candid pictures of your guests as they socialise and enjoy the day – these are often the moments that you won’t get chance to see first-hand yourself. I will also take a selection of posed pictures of main people of the event. Time for this should be scheduled into the day and you will probably find that this provides a well-deserved 'time out'. These 'photo shoots' can take place at the venue or a place of your choosing, depending on the coverage you want.              

  I think that it’s important to get to know the subject of the shoot so that I can reflect their personality in the photographs. Deciding which photographer to use can be a daunting task so I am always at hand to answer any questions you may have. As part of the service we will have an initial meeting, either at your home or at a place of your choosing. In the meeting I will want to get an idea of the sort of pictures you want from start to finish.

Please note: 

Travel is included within 10 miles of Darwen Lancashire. For multiple locations or areas outside of 10 miles, travel costs may be required. 



 Professional quality studio portraits in the comfort of your home, place of work or out on location of your choice .

  I use state of the art mobile lighting to create the perfect portraits. I have wireless lighting systems that can also be used outdoors at a location of your choice to get that professional 'magazine' look, day or night.

  Each portrait can be carefully edited to smooth skin, reduce/remove blemishes, bags under the eyes etc. if you so wish. Additional editing to slim things down or remove unwanted objects can be requested.

  No matter what portraits are taken whether it is of a new born baby or a Grandma or Granddad, a family portrait, favourite pet or a corporate shoot for a web page, the same excellent standard of care and professionalism will apply to them all. 

Fun shoots


   Portraits don’t have to be the traditional sit down and shoot, but fancy-dress, funny faces, and generally messing about can make a great portrait. Or my favourite one of all ‘THE CAKE SMASH’.  Basically, put a cake in front of your young child, or your selves and let them go crazy photographing the resulting carnage!

 Please note:  

Due to dietary and possible allergic reaction to some foods I do not supply the cake or other food stuffs for this session. 

Video Soapbox


 Whether your special occasion is a Wedding, Christening or Birthday, why not create a short video message at your venue from family, friends and guest’s wishing you all the best and good luck. That then can be turned into a DVD along with your photos for you to keep and cherish.    

Out & About life style


If you would like to capture memorable moments out and about which are hard to capture yourself for eg. skateboarding, surfing, Horse riding or just walking the dog. Let me take the hassle out as much as I can. Why not get a professional to capture this for you. Any location you wish just ask.

After Events.


  Camera, Action, Retake.

 Not got the photos you want, whether it was a wedding, birthday, engagement or may be just the just the wrong place. Then why not rebook a new photo shoot at a place and time that suits you. Put on that wedding dress or prom suit to recreate the photos that you want to cherish, at a time and place of your choice. After Events will allow you to do that, with a little organization you can have the photo you want.

Your Pictures go digital

 Tired of looking at paper pictures that are fading or damaged, why not get them backed up digitally and in some cases repaired, or tweaked to look their best and then put onto a CD, DVD or pen drive, to keep them safe.

  All you have to do is send me the originals or if you already have your favorite pics in a digital format and i'll do the rest.

 And if you wish you can have them put into a slideshow, with your music or sound track.
