Ray is a professional photographer with a recently refurbished studio in Southampton where he offers professional family, baby, wedding and commercial photography. Ray is no stranger to success; after being named the Winner of the Business Excellence Award for the Best Portrait Photographer Southampton in 2016.
Since childhood, Ray has always been passionate about photography and remembers receiving his first camera from his mum at Christmas. Ray spent a large part of his working life in human resources for a large manufacturer in Germany but returned to the UK in 2002.
On his return, and keeping his interest in photography alive, he was asked by several friends to be their wedding photographer. Recognition for his work grew rapidly to such an extent, that he hired a private studio to perform portrait photography for new clients. It was at this point that he took the decision to become a full-time photographer by opening his own studio in Southampton in 2013.
“A photoshoot is an opportunity to capture a moment that you wish to preserve forever, whether that’s you dressed up to the nines, or your gorgeous baby’s first smile. It’s a great way to ensure that you have a photograph which sums up that moment in your life, whether that’s celebrating your family, preparing for a huge life change, cherishing your pet or just you looking fantastic.
As a professional photographer with years of experience, I know exactly how to get the best from everyone in the portrait. My aim is to make the experience fun but above all produce several stunning pictures for you to choose from.
“I shoot many types of photography from Weddings, Bump to Baby, individual head shots to large family groups and products to pets. The photo sessions are fun and very relaxed and this is reflected in the photos you will see at your private viewing session. I also offer a wide range of gift products and wall art at prices to suit all budgets.”
