First Win of 2017 for David Tombs Photography!
Congratulations to David Tombs, whose cheeky image of baby Evelyn is one of the five winners in the November 2017 Baby of the Month competition. Evelyn has won Mothercare vouchers to the value of £100 and a winner’s certificate. It’s David’s first win in the competition and we look forward to seeing many more award winning shots from him!
David started taking professional photographs over twenty years ago whilst serving in the Army. Having enjoyed much success, he moved into full time photography in 2012, with his own bespoke studio in the heart of Suffolk. David say’s “Being a full time photographer allows me to give the service and attention to customers that they deserve, and having my own studio means I have the environment and time to develop and hone my skills to ensure that I produce beautiful photographs for everyone I work with”.
In 2014 David gained official recognition from the Master Photographers Association (MPA) by being awarded his Licentiate qualification in Portrait and Wedding photography. He went on to follow this with a Merit award from the MPA in 2016 for his “Life Time” photography.
David says “click with the person before you click with the shutter” which summarises his overall approach, enabling him to achieve relaxed images of clients and capturing moments that no one else has managed to. He goes on to say “my work is my passion, I love what I do. Interacting with people, sometimes pets, gives me a warm feeling and most of all seeing the expression of my client’s faces when they see their images. I get a huge buzz from making people happy”.
The family friendly studio is located in the grounds of David’s home in Battisford, and is a log cabin construction that was completed in July 2017, so is a new studio. It is in a fantastic rural setting and the garden has been carefully considered so that outdoor environmental family, and children’s portraits, can be taken just a few feet away. The studio is in a fantastic rural setting, but only 5 minutes from Needham Market in Suffolk with a rail, and regular bus route. David can boast that his clients can park 2 feet from the studio door, so no parking fees or cold walks! It is a perfect opportunity to combine having a wonderful photography experience with David, and have a day in the country as well!
