Let us introduce to you Doug Brown and Sheila Mann of Style Photography, whose studio is in Herne Bay, Kent.
Both have both been photographing professionally for over 20 years bringing past artistic experience to the business, Sheila as florist and make-up artist and Doug had previously worked in graphic design and printing.
Initially, Doug and Sheila were purely wedding photographers until about sixteen years ago when they purchased a lovely Victorian house which they converted to a studio enabling them to branch out into portrait photography. Doug comments “the building has an area for reception, and a studio, office, make-up room, lounge/gallery for viewing, bedroom and lounge set for boudoir photo-shoots and a framing work room. It is currently going through a major refurbishment which we know will enhance the services we offer”.
Since opening 16 years ago Doug and Sheila have established a successful growing portrait business and receive clients from far and wide from many different sources including Emma’s Diary, along with other marketing sources. There have been a number of successes with awards including UK Family Portrait Photographer of the Year, Kodak Portrait Photographer of the Year, and SE Master Fashion Photographer of the Year.
Sheila says; “We love the diverse range of photography from clients who come into the studio wanting types of images including maternity, new born, babies, children, families, makeover, boudoir, couples and weddings. The studio is well located in Herne Bay, which is a very popular seafront for day-trippers and has a wide choice of restaurants, cafes and shops.”
There is two hour parking opposite the studio or Council Car Parks within a two minute walk. Nearby is Whitstable and Canterbury, so there is plenty to do for families to do in the area after a photographic session where Doug and Sheila will make you very welcome!
