>Hello folks,

Happy New Year!

This week the Chamber of Commerce published a press release on their website and I thought I would post it here for all to see.

Great photography just became even more affordable!

This month a new advertising campaign went live in Time Twisters children’s play area for Wallace Artworks photography. Focusing on Family portraiture and wedding photography, the advert provided by media group EC displays is prominent on an in-house 40″ screen.
To celebrate the launch of this advert, Wallace Artworks are offering a 25% discount on a 1 hour family portrait shoot.Wallace Artworks philosophy is that photography is all about capturing unique moments. Family portrait sessions are held at the family’s home or on location. Company director Helen Wallace-Thomson explains: “We come to you to capture your memories in an atmosphere you feel totally comfortable with, your own home. Your relaxed and friendly photographer will capture your family’s individual personalities in their natural environment”. She continues, “I think it’s fair to say that most people, and in particular young children might find the studio environment a bit daunting and intimidating. Conducting a shoot when children are at play, when they are themselves, removes the formality and ensures the best shots are captured.”
As a mother to young children herself, Ms Wallace feels she can bring something different to the tradition of the family portrait. “I understand children…… I get it. They’re fun, energetic, sometimes they’re tired or cranky or even hard work, they’re almost always playful but above all, they are unique. Every family is different and it’s my job to capture a little bit of that personality.”

The expansion of Wallace Artworks, as a company, is an interesting one. Weddings were a fairly late addition to the repertoire, Ms Wallace explains: “I decided to take on weddings after trying to find a photographer for my own wedding. I found that the vast majority were way out of my budget. I eventually found one great freelance we could afford and he inspired me to expand into wedding coverage. The philosophy is simple, Wedding photography should be affordable for all and suit every budget. I wish to ensure that couples on small budgets can have fantastic photography too!”

In describing the wedding side of her work, Ms Wallace summarises: “Working in a predominantly reportage style, I aim to capture the spontaneous as it happens. Those little treasured moments that will stay with you for a lifetime.Every wedding is different and the photography for each event should reflect this….. rather than a ‘one size fits all’ approach. Your photos, just like your wedding, will be unique to you…. so no standard repeated poses or ‘playing it safe’.
So if you want to meet for a coffee and a chat about your big day, give us a call!”


The 25% off is applicable to 1 hour family portrait shoots, at home or on location and includes 10×8 framed print, normal price £99. Offer price £75. Offer is valid for bookings made BEFORE the end of January 2010.
