January 2019 Photographer of the Month – Mike Skidmore
Congratulations to Mike Skidmore who has been selected as the January 2019 Photographer of the Month!
Three of his entries from the January BOM competition were chosen by sponsors Premier Image, the top UK pro-photo processing lab, and Mike can look forward to receiving a £200 voucher for processing with the lab. This is Mike’s first success in the Photographer of the Month competition, but he is no stranger to competition success, with several winning and runners-up entries in past Baby of the Month competitions.
Mike has been running the Barrett & Coe Northampton studio since September 2014 having previously worked as Group Company Secretary for a charity, and prior to that worked in banking for 24 years. He has undergone further training to achieve a Licentiate Qualification with the British Institute of Professional Photography (BIPP).
“Photography has been a hobby of mine for as long as I can remember. It might even be a genetic thing, as my Dad was a keen photographer too. I remember Mum telling stories of holding him by the ankles whilst he hung over the edge of some precipice in Derbyshire so that he could ‘get the shot’. Whilst I haven’t gone to quite those lengths, I have been known to be up at crazy hours of the morning to drive to locations for that sunrise – even on holiday!”
Since working as a photographer, Mike’s met many families and has enjoyed capturing moments which they can treasure forever. He is committed to offering the highest levels of customer service and to the needs of his customer. Mike says: “The best thing about my job is knowing that my work will adorn clients’ walls for years to come, and will continue to give them pleasure each time they look at it. Every shoot is different, which is what makes each one enjoyable!”
His studio is conveniently located on Moulton Park, a few minutes drive to the North of the town centre. With parking available and a good bus service from the town centre, the studio is ideally located for all. The studio is also equipped with baby changing and bottle warming facilities.
