You can send your images directly to our Facebook page or email them to us at info@firstpointphotography.co.uk

Our studio shoots are going really well, we’ve had lots of people come in and we’re pleased to say that they all seem to love their images!  If you would like an appointment for a studio shoot, please call Jo on 01202 419808 and book yourself in!


We’ve had a very busy week this week; we’ve had our 5 Day Digital Manipulation course running as well as our 5 Day Portrait and Wedding Photography course.  Yesterday’s rain didn’t stop the students from going out to take some lovely pictures of our brides and groom!  Take a look at our galleries to see some of the images our students have produced!
