How much is a family portrait?

My studio photography professional fees are made to be as simple as possible with no hidden costs or fees. I charge £40 for the studio sitting fee (extra charges apply during Sundays, bank holidays and out of business working hours), I don’t put a time limit on my on the photo shoots as I like to work with you to make sure we get the images you want. Then you simply purchase what images you like in whatever format you want. I can supply images on personalised USB pen drive or disc ~ copyright free. Albums, Canvases, Framed images and prints are available, why not Contact Me for an extras price list. I value the effort made by the armed forces and to everyone who works for the NHS therefore you can get a 25% off on all our prices (can not be used in conjunction with any other offer).

Family photography at Discovery Photography middlesbrough teesside and north east YorkshireWhy book me, what makes me different?

With my studio based in Guisborough, North Yorkshire. I’m just off the high street, accessibility isn’t an issue. It’s private, warm, cosy and comfortable, but if you fancy something a little different, I love to shoot on location. I’m enhanced DBS checked too.

I do family portrait photography for a living so you can expect the quality of both my service and the images to be perfect, so whether you’re bringing your family dog, children or the whole family including extended family, I can accommodate every occasion. I am also a member of the Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers and the Guild of Professional Photographers.

What happens during your family portrait?

There’s no rush once you’re all at the studio, I’ll work to get that shot right. Which means we always have time to do as many costume changes and set ups as you want to, with this in mind, I’m comfortable working with pets of all sizes and children, I have a lot of animals myself and I’m used to handling them that includes the children!

Once the shoot is over,  you can sit down preferably with a cuppa and I will give you the chance to look back thorough your images on the big screen at your own pace. It’s as simple as that. The final images usually take around a week to be completed and presented to you.

Pet Portrait Photo shoots.

Pet portrait photography is one of my favorite things to do, I have two dogs myself and a whole host of animals at home, so I’m very adverse to working with animals. They are so random and you never know what they will do next. The studio has seen everything from horses to rabbits from quail to cats.

If you would like to book your best friend a photo shoot then drop me a line.

Love your bike, cycling portraits.

We all love getting photo shoots with our loved ones, The family, the children even the family pet…… Well secretly we all know you love your bike, most of you spend more on them than you do the rest of the family (its fine I won’t say anything). Then why not get a photo shoot with your real loved one?

You can have just your bike or you can be in the image or a mix…….

I keep the cycling portrait package simple, you get a unlimited time photo shoot for the sitting fee of £35 from there you get chance to look back over the images and choose the ones you want from the large screen presentation. Images can be purchased digitally, as prints, framed or canvas. email me for an up to date price list.

If you are interested and either want more information or would like to book then why not get in touch?

Model and make over photo shoot and portfolios.

I’ve worked with models for a number of years now. I can work on location or in the studio; tailor making portfolios to your needs and cover anything from head shots to full portfolios. My make-over packages are more of an experience,  you want to feel flawless and look amazing. You also don’t want to be rushed, so you can do as many clothing changes as you want and once your shoot is over you can take as long as you want to look back over your images. We work with Sacks hair and beauty for the hair and make up.

Family Portrait photography north east

I go to the tuition course once a week and after trying to teach myself the basics of photography, I found that attending this was a much easier way to learn how to use my own camera using a hands on approach. Stu an Kirsty are easy to work with and teach in a way that's easily understanded, each week we are given handouts on what we're learning in that session. I particularly like the outdoor photography lessons which can be flexible to suit everyone one in the group. There are 6 people in my group which gives us the opportunity to have more one on one time with both stu and kirsty.
Overall a very satisfied student!!

Stacey Gilding

"I would recommend Discovery Photography highly, for any event,
Weddings, personal portraits, pets etc.... i had a portrait done, and someone i know in the music buisness
had a publicity picture taken, which was brilliant! so upon seeing thier work,
my friend is getting her wedding Pictures with DP, as they are by far the best around,
Stewart makes everybody feel relaxed, and has a great sense ofhumour, obtaining the best
possible pictures!! my cousins wedding pictures were taken by them, and everybody commented how good they were during the shots! by thinking of innovative and unusual angles , to get that not to posed look and the best pics possible, and therefore are more than happy with their album"

I was bought a photo shoot as a gift. Entering the shop i was shy and nervous. Stu and kirsty soon made me feel comfortable and at ease. I had a really great afternoon and the photographs they produced were wonderful. I would highly recommend Discovery Photography to everyone. They provided a friendly, professional photo shoot. at a resonable price. The end photographs are great.

“Another excellent shoot with Discovery - I find Stu
and Kirsty so easy to get on with, it’s like I've known them for years.
I appreciated they asked my opinion on other members of the team - models
and make up artists;
its shows a proactive approach to creating the best team they can.
As we were on location I was of course offered transport,
food and drink throughout the day. Hoping to see the results soon and
hoping to work with them again soon.
Thanks Guys! Kim xx”

how to have a laugh at the same time I felt welcome

highly recommended!”

Kate Ashley (model)   

I used discovery for my wedding day and was very pleased, you dont get as much as this company offers with any other companies and was surprised on what we did get for what we paid. I especially liked the pre-wedding photoshoot. Stuart is a very nice man, relaxed and listens to what you want, he gave us a very good choice of proofs for us to choose for for the final wedding album and loved the fact that they were a mixture of nateral pictures and set up poses. The final album was much more than we expected and loved the fact it was designed as a book. I have nothing bad to say about the quality of customer service or products. To the fact i went back to have a glamous shoot, i was really nervous and didn't know what to expect but stuart tried to make the athmosphere as fun as possible, it was a great experience which ended in laughs and jokes. Would definately use discovery again.

Toni Parkin   

“Brilliant photographer, made me feel really comfortable as he took the time out to get to know me before shooting. He seems very passionate about photography and I look forward to working with him again as his best interests are in the model and the outcome of the photo's.”

Naomi Jones (model)   

It was a brilliant day and a brilliant venue Stuart. As you know it was one of the proudest days of my life alongside my own wedding day with Kath, the birth of our two sons (which I was in to see). Looking through the photos have been a great way of remembering the day. Thanks to you and Kirsty for being part of the day.

Gordon Mogg   

"Thank you so so much for the Photos of my
