Following on in our series of company profiles we would like to introduce to you another company that we work with.
Pictorial photography is run by Sarah Chappell, and below you can see a recently published article explaining a little bit about what Sarah does. We have collaborated on numerous projects and Sarah has provided some fantastic photos for some of our websites, we would highly recommend Sarah to anyone requiring photography services.
When talented photographer Sarah Chappell, 27, went on maternity leave with her first baby, she decided the time was right for a change in lifestyle. “I was travelling from Berwick to Newcastle, where I had been working as a Photographic Technician in Northumbria University for four years,” she said. “But it was a long commute, and I really wanted to do my own work, so I set up Pictorial Photography.”
Three years later and mum to Leo, Sarah is now firmly established as a wedding portrait and commercial photographer, offering her own unique, contemporary style to her clients. “My fundamental aim is to really capture the spirit and personality of everyone I photograph. To me, successful photography is all about being natural and spontaneous and, of course, having lots of fun”, she says.
Sarah’s talent is clear – with a degree in Contemporary Photographic Practice and 10 years of experience under her belt, she has had photographic exhibitions at Halifax School of Integrated Arts, London’s Millennium Dome, AOP Gallery and Northumbria University.
Sarah has recently diversified her portfolio into commercial work, developing a niche in photographing holiday accommodation. This year her growing reputation for high quality creative work has led to more wedding bookings than last year, in addition to commercial and portrait commissions.
Sarah is planning to move out of her home office and into a purpose-built studio. “Offering contemporary photography, with the highest quality albums I have sourced specially from New Zealand, means that I am developing a real speciality in this area”, says Sarah.
