We've been in Church street now since 1996 but before that my amazing (old) boss Derek Whitehouse had a studio in the Market Square and several others around town. I started as a photographer for Derek back in 1986 (yes - I'm that old!)
The derelict old Tudor building in Church Street came up for sale, It's taken a lot of hard work and tears to create this amazing place I work in. When Derek first bought the place in 1993 being a Grade 2 listed building, planning went in for change of use from residential to commercial, create 1 room from the 2 downstairs (ever noticed our 2 external doors into the reception), and several rooms upstairs from the long room upstairs. It was the original courthouse in Melton Mowbray c1550. 3 years later we move on the borrowed flatbed truck, thanks Keith, 500 yards away to Church street. I've put a few pictures on, there are many more that I could upload but won't. If you want to see the book of pictures we have and the stories I've collected about the place, please call in anytime and have a look. Even now I'm changing things up. In a few weeks, the reception is having a make-over. I'm putting up walls, no not fixed listed people, don't get concerned. I have to fix free-standing walls to a solid piece of victorian furniture so that I don't touch the sand stone walls. This little area is going to be my new viewing area for the lovely families I photograph. They can sit in private and enjoy the story we've created together. Watch this space for updated images of the reception.

Hello and welcome.
I'm trying something new for us but obviously, blogging has been around forever. My worries are going to be doing this regularly and more importantly, have something interesting to say!
I'm going to be posting our special offers, what we get up to in general around here, and anything else I think maybe interesting. Also news from my hometown, Melton Mowbray.
