Snap up bargain photo session at new Somerset studio

A new Somerset photographic studio is celebrating its launch by offering more than 80% off photoshoot prices.

An hour’s photographic session and framed 10inch x 8inch print at the Barrett & Coe studio in Stoke St Gregory, near Taunton, usually costs £185, but book the shoot and viewing by the end of August and you will pay just £25.

The studio is run by award-winning photographer Rowen Campbell, who has just received a coveted Barrett & Coe Gold Award for excellence for her portrait of Evie, aged 3.

Rowen says, “These days, everyone can have a photo taken on mobile phones, but they often produce poor results and come out blurred, out of focus or at low resolution.

“At a professional photo session in the Barrett & Coe studio, I make sure the subjects are at ease and the expression, composition and lighting are just right, so they have photographs to treasure.”

Rowen specialises in portraits of individuals, couples, family groups and even pets. She says, “Many people order a portrait to mark special occasions, like birthdays, anniversaries, passing exams or for Christmas gifts. Having a photo session in the studio allows the whole family to be included.”

The open-plan Barrett & Coe studio is in The Old Byre business unit on a working dairy farm at Meare Green Farm, Frog Lane, in Stoke St Gregory. There is plenty of on-site parking available.

Rowen has been interested in photography ever since she got an Olympus SLR camera for her 10th birthday. She became a professional after a career in retail marketing.

Clients initially book an appointment for the photo session, and Rowen will discuss the portrait subjects, style, décor, colours, props and other important details. Then, at the shoot, a selection of images are taken using different poses and settings. Finally, the finished portraits are reviewed, chosen and ordered at a viewing session.

Rowen welcomes babies and children for photo sessions – and her Gold Award portrait proves that she quickly puts them at their ease and helps them relax.

A range of Rowen’s portraits are displayed at the light, bright studio at Meare Green Farm.

To arrange a photo session at the special introductory price of £25 or to find out more details, ring Rowen at Barrett & Coe on 01823 490720 or email rowen.campbell@barrettandcoe.co.uk ENDS July 2012
