My Fabulously Fun Photo Session


Laura’s Experience Like any modern woman, I’m a big fan of taking selfies. They give me the opportunity to show myself at the best angle, with the most flattering lighting and the occasional Instagram filter. Now I’m not talking about being vain or self-obsessed, but being creative and sharing photos with friends. As much as I enjoy photographing myself, the thought of being the other side of the camera has always made me feel excited and terrified in equal measure. So when I decided to have a portrait taken, I went to Charlotte from Steve Hampshire Photography. From the minute […]

Mother of Portraits by Steve Hampshire


It’s hectic and rewarding being a mother, I’m so pleased we managed to find the time to take this stunning portrait. Wasn’t it worth it, because it was fun to do. It’s important to take time for yourself and to create a lasting image like this is priceless! I got so many different looks from one session. When I presented the images to see her reaction, (well tears were shed) was priceless, I knew I had done my job. The framed final product is like art as it’s printed on archival fine art quality paper. This is going to be […]

Detour Through Dartmoor – Landscapes with Steve Hampshire


As a photographer I’m always travelling around the country to photographic jobs. Recently on my way to Cornwall I took a detour to travel through Dartmoor. What a magical place. My journey from London had been in blissful sunlight, but not Dartmoor which was misty, damp and very, very moody! Just enough time to jump out the car and catch a couple of pictures. Note to self, must go back and take some more pics of this mean and beautiful landscape. Landscapes are for decorating the world we live in, so why not take your own as you go about […]
