Outdoor Photoshoot Experiences

Gloucester, Cheltenham and the Cotswolds

If you've got a location for your photoshoot in mind, let me know, and we'll see what we can do there. I've got some of my own go-to spots for great locations for photoshoots in Gloucester, and can make good of most scenarios if you're happy for me to lead - I know we will get great shots so long as it's not raining (and sometimes even when it is!). We're kind of spoilt for choice here with the beautiful Cotswolds in driving distance too.

You'll see from the images below that my core photography style involves sharp subjects & soft backgrounds, with a combination of 'traditional' posed family shots with a few 'in between' moments mixed in... those candid shots you might not have been expecting to be captured. In fact, these often become your favourite family photos as they tend to better capture your 'life right now' moments; those authentic you being you interactions.

Behind the scenes of a Gloucester photoshoot

Do I always wear a blue Superdry t-shirt to my shoots?... haha, no. I don't always bring this lighting setup either (see below), but I am a rather big fan of the results.

A little 'behind the scenes', as it were: two similar on-location photoshoots near me: this shoot with the Baldwin brothers was taken in late summer as the sun was setting, whilst the photo of Indie was taken a bit earlier in the day, early summer, with a strong sun beating down on us in the poppy field. I love to use this overhead flash setup where appropriate, as it generates fantastic results when shooting against the sun, and really makes the skin tones look fantastic. Keep scrolling for the results!...
