Well Here it is Finally after Months of work – The all new Sammy Southall Photography Website. It has taken all my spare time all through this lovely long hot summer. We hope you enjoy our new images and tips, and will be coming to see us soon to experience the Sammy Southall Studios quality and creativity. Remember we really Are Passionate about Pictures.
Our new Sammy Southall Photography Logo is also starting to take it’s place throughout our business.
In this day and age so many photographs are taken with mobile phones and pocket-sized cameras, and people seem to be getting a bit less picky about how they are photographed. The simple fact is, technology has enabled people to constantly shoot photos, which means we really can’t control how we look in every single picture that gets taken.
However, there are still times when it is far better to hire a professional photographer for a Makeover Portrait or Boudoir Photography session.
With these styles of shoot you have more time to consider how you look, and how you style yourself. This doesn’t mean that you need to alter your appearance or make any big changes, but a few little details here and there can certainly help for example, one thing that many people choose to do if they know they have photography sessions coming up is switch from eyeglasses to contact lenses. This is a subtle, small, and impermanent shift, but it can actually lead not only to better photographs, but also a bit more comfort during the photo shoot. If you don’t want your switch to contact lenses to be permanent, it’s easy enough to simply purchase a few pairs of daily lenses from Acuvue for the photography occasions alone.
There are two main reasons that it might be a good idea to wear contact lenses for a makeover or portrait photo shoot. The first is that your appearance in the photos may be enhanced for those looking at the photographs can see you eyes more clearly, this is not to suggest that people do not look good in eyeglasses – in fact, glasses suite many people perfectly. However, small details are important in photography, and if you wear glasses it can sometimes be a bit harder to be seen clearly in a photograph, as your eyes will not be on full, clear display. People are drawn to eyes, and wearing glasses – yes, even clear, simple prescription ones – can hide you a little bit in a photograph. The other reason that you may be more comfortable switching to contact lenses for a big photo shoot is simply that it may help you avoid irritation. If you will be posing for many photographs in a single session, the flash of the cameras can become quite irritating when seen through eyeglasses. A comfortable pair of contacts can simply make it easier to look into the camera for dozens of pictures at a time.
Makeover Photography Birmingham and Midlands
We constantly have around 20 fantastic Makeover Photography shoots per month and as well as me finding some time to try out some great new lighting variations ( See the picture below taken of Laura last week ) and get to grips with having 2 beauty lighting dishes to use for that hot fashion look for the first time, Jane has been been taking a greater and more creative ” hands on” role in the shooting of the Makeover Photography shoots and has achieved some fabulous results and is producing some terrific wall art and canvas art from her shoots.
Creative and Exciting Makeover Photography
We also had a big boost in our creative juices as we attended the Annual Photographers Convention in London last month organised by the SWPP The society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers. There we saw the best of the new makeover and fashion style shooting trends, which we will be implementing throughout the coming months. We are also now offering a short extension to our makeover photography sessions for those that would like some outdoor, woodland setting, location shots added on to their shoot.
Makeover Photography offer
Lastly on the Makeover Photography special offer’s front we have decided to continue on with our special £49.95 offer on makeover shoots and makeover gift vouchers – The usual starting price for a makeover photography session with us is £85 this includes the professional makeover and hairstyling, the shoot and the first 12″ x 8″ folder picture, these sessions proved very popular on the run up to Christmas, it’s true to say that most people choose to have albums, CD’s, Our new Facebook and IPhone video slideshows, or a picture for the wall but others just have the makeover session and shoot and choose a few extra prints and thats fine too. We have even had as many as 5 teenagers here for a a real makeover party experience this year and all the parents were over the moon with thye results. Click for more details
Boudoir Noir Photography by Sammy Southall
Boudoir Photography and the Classic, Low Key, darker looking ” Boudoir Noir” style derived from the 1940’s vintage and classic film genre “Film Noir” is more popular than ever for us. Mostly the term “Noir” implies shadowy low key contrasty lighting to emphasize shape and form, and we had quite a few clients recently who have asked specifically for this classic Boudoir style which is powerful as well as full of sultriness and glamour. Just over half of our clients are from Kidderminster, Stourport and Bewdley and Worcestershire generally but many come. from all across the West Midlands and Birmingham. Here’s a shot from a boudoir shoot booking from a bride of ours from a couple of years ago Stacy who really wanted the darker, sexier Boudoir Noir feel and that’s exactly what we were able to give her as you can see below. Thanks for an amazing shoot and your very kind comments about the results.

Bearded Dragon Photgraphy
If you are looking for Photography of your bearded Dragons – We are ready, I have been taking photographs professionally for nearly 27 years and still occasionaly get asked to do something we have never done before. A smashing couple from Ludlow found us when they were looking for a wall portrait of one of them with their dog, we had arranged the shoot when Carl just happened to ask if we could take some pictures of his Bearded Dragons, now we had heard the name but had no idea what they were or what they looked like! Yes we were sure we could though, as long as they weren’t dangerous bring them along and lets see what we can do. Just a few of the results are below ( thanks Carl for letting us share these )
Bearded Dragon Reptile Portraits
We ended up with one of the most facinating portraits I have ever taken of Carl with his wonderful Bearded Dragons “Lucy” and “Dave” We also love the one with Carl in Black and white and “Lucy the Bearded Dragon on his shoulder.
Here’s another we really liked Carl with Mustrad The Bearded Dragon making eye to eye contact!

Here are jst a couple of the fantastic close ups we were able to get of the Fabulously Photogenic Bearded Dragons ” Mustard and Luphy”
So if you have Bearded Dragons or anyother sort of ” Non Dangerous ” reptiles you would like to have photographed with you – You know who to call. Lastly We just had to show you this lovely picture of Carls Partner Stephanie with her lovely dog “Tipsey” Thanks to both of you for a very enjoyable Bearded Dragon Portraits photographic shoot.

The sun shone all day and everyone had a wonderful day – there were lots of little ones at the wedding and Jane had a great time capturing them when they werent expecting it.
