Products & Services

Wedding Photography

We don't pretend to be the cheapest nor are we the most expensive, we just believe in providing the optimum quality and will work with you to "Tailor" your pictures for your big day. We can cover everything from simple occasions to very grand affairs with the same amount of care and attention to detail. For ease of ordering, there is a range of packages and you can mix and match the elements of each to match your requirements, or we can quote for something "a la carte", it's completely up to you. We can cover everything from simple occasions to very grand affairs with the same amount of care and attention to detail.


Having your portrait taken could not be simpler. You choose the location, either at my studio, at home or on location at a favourite park or beauty spot Before your sitting I recommend a prior meeting to discuss your thoughts and ideas, and to advise you on what to wear for the best results.

Boudoir Photography

We can help you bring your fantasies to reality and capture the exciting and sensual side of yourself. Our Boudoir images are taken either in the studio or in the privacy of your own home with you wearing whatever you want from evening wear to nude with the emphasis placed upon body language to convey an air of sensuality. (We could even shoot outdoors at secluded beauty spots).

Event Photography

Our presence at your function, party or event guarantees complete coverage of who, what, where, when and why! We shoot digitally to offer you the benefits of a faster turn-around and increased image quality. We can shoot the function in a reportage way, recording it as proceedings unfold and also have a portable studio set up so that guests can have their portraits taken during the event. All images are up-loaded to a secure on-line gallery for image viewing within 24Hrs with the option of securely purchasing prints and photo gifts on-line at competitive prices.

From Our Website

Site and Product photography are probably the safest things that I can still do within the current climate. If you have products that you need photographing. Please get in touch. Whatever your photographic needs, from a simple pack shot or product image or corporate portrait/headshot to a full shoot on location, we can't wait to hear from you, so why not get in touch today to find out how we can help?

Perfect peace of mind for when you order your prints and download files. We are also GDPR compliant, which I am sure many of you have heard about recently. Richard Cook LBIPP, is a professional photographer with over 30 years working in the industry. He started his career in 1983 as an in-house photographer working for the Church Commissioners and it was while he was there that he gained his qualifications, particularly in the portrait, commercial and reprographic fields.

I aim to produce a full service for your functions, events and parties and can produce images in one of two ways or both. Either with a set up, portable studio at the venue, possibly in a side room, or with a reportage approach, where I would literally walk amongst your guests taking pictures as I go. Images would then be uploaded to my website via the client area where they can be viewed and purchased as required. There is a rate of 300* for this type of photography within a 20 mile radius of Sittingbourne.

We can photograph your products, premises, staff etc to your specifications and produce very high quality images at full size or web dimensions (or both). We have produced work for several highly regarded companies from PR to food production. Our current rates are 95 per hour* plus post production***, or if you prefer, I have a 1/2 day rate of 300 or a full day rate of 600, inclusive of post production.

I can create high quality portraits in a variety of styles, from Corporate (to impress your boss?) to Boudoir or Glamour poses* (to impress your partner?) as well as the classic family groups (up to 6 people) and all at a competitive price. A portrait is an everlasting memory of your self-confidence, your satisfaction, and success.

Thank you very much for the photos. We looked at them many times and it was difficult to choose! They are different according to the outfits we were wearing and we are happy to have different images to propose. We thank you very much for your beautiful work and look forward to receiving the CD. We Love our wedding pictures, the photobook is fantastic and the red colour, spot on, to match my dress. Way beyond what we expected. Richard did some family photos for us a couple of years ago and they were fab, a really nice memento.

We are now selling Gift vouchers for use as full or part payment towards any kind of portrait photography. So if you're stuck for buying somebody a gift, why not purchase one and the recipient can book a session?

I am often asked to produce 'Headshots' for people at work in the world of entertainment for actors and singers to supply to agencies and promotional companies and in business, such as managers, directors and key employees of various companies, in the studio and on location. For the, all in, price of just 95* you will receive 10 edited and colour corrected images, on a disc, memory stick or online at full size together with a duplicate set at web proportions, so that you can use them for job applications, CVs, social media sites and Business web pages.
