As the title says, the photo shoots at Loud and Flashy have been rather varied over the last couple of weeks!

We've had the Eliot Smith Company in for images to promote their new dance work 'Imprisonment'. Its' always fun working with Eliot as he has such amazing ideas which really push us in the studio to get creative!

If you check out their website (Eliot Smith Company) you'll see a few of the images taken for this piece, but below is our favourite! Click on the image to see it full size.

As well as dancers we've had Teepees in the studio!

Check out JaJo Gifts to see more of the amazing things they make!  (click to see full size)

However, dancers and teepees don't make enough mess in the studio for us, so we got this little fella in for a 
cake smash shoot!  He loved it! (click to see full size)

Fortunately the paper flooring means it's a quick tidy up ready for a newborn shoot. This little cutie is just 6 days old! (click to see full size).

So as you can see, we really do photograph everything at Loud and Flashy Photography  in Ashington, and we've not mentioned all the family shoots, pet shoots, model portfolios or our Halloween creative night!

If you want something or someone photographed then get in touch. It's a lot more affordable than you think!

We're sorry we've neglected the blog!

We've just been so busy and the time has flown by!

Between commercial shoots for handbags, newborn baby photography, family shoots, model portfolios, pet portraits and lighting and photography classes in the studio; we've not had a minute to update this!

So, what's coming up and what's new at the studio?

First, as we've become so busy, we have a new photographer joining the studio!
Amanda will be shooting all the different types of photography we do and specialising in boudoir!

Check out some of her work, she's amazing! (click on the images to see them larger).

Simon will also still be shooting and overseeing everything we do!

Today he was shooting a portfolio for a local model, here's a sneak preview

(again, click to see them bigger!)

So if you'd like a boudoir or makeover shoot, you know who to call!  We have great value packages and guarantee you'll look and feel amazing!

If you're looking for a family portrait, look no further!

This is the biggest part or our business and we know how to get the best out of your family.  But unlike other studios, you won't get a shock at the price!

Our sessions include the largest framed photo you'll find at any studio in the north east included within the sitting fee. 

And we won't then charge you silly money for additional images, check out our full price list on our website - Loud and Flashy - most studios don't publish their prices for fear of scaring customers away! They prefer to take the images first and then pressure you in to buying them.  At Loud and Flashy we believe you should know from the outset what you're likely to spend!

Remember, we also have an amazing offer for larger family groups - just £75 for a photo session and EVERYONE in the session gets their own 12"x8" copy of the group shot.  This is a great way to make sure the younger generation have a treasured memory of their family members.

And this is a great time to remind you to back up your own photos!  It's the easiest it's ever been to take photos of your loved one with most people having cameras on their phones and tablets, but unlike the old days, few people actually have real prints of the images.  If you lose or break your mobile, would you lose a whole lifetime of memories?  Don't take the risk, go and back them up now!

Finally ( for this catch up) we have some spaces available on Saturday 27th June on our group shoot with Tessa Grave. She's an amazing model and any photographers that would like to add her to their portfolio can do so for just £35!  There are two sessions on Saturday - 10am-2pm and 2:30-6:30pm, each for just six photographers. Refreshments included!

If you'd like to attend just email the studio. These sessions are suitable for all levels of ability as Simon will be on hand to help with lighting, camera settings etc.

Tessa - in the studio Saturday 27th June.

We look forward to seeing you in the studio soon!

Something different in the studio!

It's been a  struggle to find one, but we've finally done it!

Thinking about it, it would have probably been easier to find a Unicorn to take photos of in the studio!

So what is it?

A male art nude model.

We have no problems finding female models for our workshops, but males are proving elusive and shy!!

However, Matt Stobbs will be in the studio on Sunday 19th July, from 10am-2pm for a group of six photographers and there is just ONE place left.

If you'd like to attend and get some great images for your portfolio get in touch!

The cost is just £35 including refreshments.

This shoot is ideal for all levels of photographic ability - Simon will be able to give advice and help with lighting and camera settings.

If you'd like to be kept informed of future events at the studio email us and we'll add you to our mailing list.

Group Shoots

At Loud and Flashy photography studio in Ashington we hold regular group shoots and model days.  If you're unfamiliar with these, it's a chance for photographers to practice their skills and add to their portfolios.

We get a wide range of models in for these days with many different looks. Yesterday we had a popular model come over from Carlisle who goes by the name Kitty Quinzell!

She brought a huge range of different outfits including lots of latex creations. inspired by these we used a projector to create various backgrounds that also projected on to the model for some interesting results.

Here's a quick edit from yesterday, click on the image to see a larger version.

If you'd like to attend any of our shoots as a photographer email the studio and we'll keep you up to date with events.

Getting WILD in the studio!

We're delighted to announce that we've teamed up with the largest chain of dedicated reptile shops in the north east, as well as the region's most renowned wildlife photographer, to bring you an amazing series of studio photography workshops!

Swapping the Farne Islands and the Masai Mara for the wilds of Ashington, Alan Hewitt will be giving the benefit of his many years shooting wildlife, while Simon Drew will be adding his studio expertise to give your wildlife portfolio a more artistic twist!

The animals used in the workshops will include frogs, lizards, snakes and more!

Working with such small creatures in the studio will refine your lighting and camera skills in a way that will hugely benefit your general photography - this workshop will really make you think and also realise why certain 'rules' are so important in all genres of photography!

Spaces will be limited on these animal workshops to enable you to get plenty of shooting time as well as for the welfare of the creatures involved, so if you're interested get in touch with the studio now for more information.

To register your interest on the animal workshops email info@loudandflashy.com or call the studio - 01670 813007.
