Welcome to Bousfield Photo.
I hope you'll enjoy looking at my photo gallery and perhaps get an idea of the sort of photos you'd like me to take for you.
Bousfield photo is run by Robert and Maxine Bousfield. I (Robert) take and edit all the photos, while my wife Maxine does most of the admin and organising. We attend all photo shoots together.
Our aim is to provide quality photos at an affordable price, to capture your family as they are, and as they grow.
Having two grown-up daughters and four grandchildren of our own, nothing is more precious to us than our photo collection and we want to help you to capture forever some of the precious moments in your lives, whether it's a special occasion, or just the opportunity to create lasting memories of your family.
Having spent many years as a keen amateur photographer, I found a new focus for my photography in 2004 when my daughters started their dance school, Bousfield School of Dance. I was seconded to take photos of dancers in shows etc., so I felt able to justify spending money on equipment. This was followed by a short honeymoon period before Maxine said that any new equipment should be put to a wider use. So here we are. I began by holding my popular Family Photo Days to support the fundraising efforts of schools and charities, but having regularly been asked to provide longer photo shoots and event photography, we now also offer these options.
We offer three main options for photo shoots. With all these options, your edited photos are published in a secure file on our website for you to view at your leisure. In all cases, you are under no obligation to purchase any photos. Prices for those you wish to purchase are listed on the Prices page.
The Photo Day
An ideal option for anyone wanting to use photography as a means of fundraising for a school, charity or other organisation.
We set up a mobile studio at your venue. Families are then invited to book sittings (usually 15 minutes)for individual and/or group photos. There is no charge for a sitting. A generous percentage of takings will be donated to the school or charity.
The Studio Session
You book a one or two hour sitting, depending on your requirements, for a range of photos in a studio setting.
The Location Session
You book a session at a location of your choice - perhaps relaxing in your own home or garden, or at an outdoor location such as a park or the beach. We also have some lifestyle location sets if you'd like to give your photos a particular theme.
Please feel free to email us via the contact page with any questions, or phone us for a chat to discuss your ideas, or to ask for ours.
