About John S Beasley

I don't just want to take a photograph I want to capture a character, record 'that' moment and preserve all the emotion that went with it. To me my photography is art, and I seem to have an ability to release my shutter just at the right time, capturing natural portraits of people.

I have over 15 year's experience in photography and digital image manipulation. No commission or edit is too much to ask. I'm very passionate about what I do and I always try to challenge myself to take my photography further.

I want to provide images that you cannot create on your compact camera. Stunning, sharp, posed or candid images of you, your family or your event. I would describe my style as natural, documentary style and vivid. You can come to my studio, or I can bring my studio to you. Whatever your preference, you'll love what you receive. You keep the fully edited high resolution images I create for you. After all, that's what you're commissioning me for!

My Portraiture photography takes place in a relaxed, private and professional environment or the big wide world! It up to you. As a matter of course, I'll work with you to plan your session so that you'll be able to get the most out of my time, I'll help you with idea generation or just take the lead if need be. My price includes a full photo sift, with professional editing and retouching of a minimum number of images. I also include as standard;

All of the final images in full resolution, on a DVD including limited copyright release certificate.

Some photographers like to retain all the images they take for you, forcing you to have to purchase your prints through them. They consider photographers who give away full resolution files to be cheapening photography. Well I think those people should understand that times change, and if they don't change with them they will get left behind! I'm proud to say that when you pay me to be your photographer you commission me and my time and skill. As such you will receive a full resolution copy of the final images that I create for you. Without having to pay extra for the privilege.

    LOCATION

    I can bring my equipment to you, and my prices are the same. In fact I prefer shooting on location, usually it's more interesting and you'll be more relaxed in/around your own home. There will be a nominal charge for locations in excess of 30 miles from my location (round trip).

    * Including a fully converted B&W of each image
    ** Additional hours are charged at £50.00 and can be added up front or ADHOC

    My wedding photography packages are 'À la carte'. Meaning that I do not have any set packages. You can mix and match my time and my services to have the most perfect coverage for your day and your budget. I include as standard (Please click to expand);

    Consultation & 'Pre Day' Meetings

    As a matter of course, I would expect to attend at least 2 pre start meetings with the Bride, Groom & Family. The first initial meeting to agree the style of photography, draft wedding day schedule, and identify any challenges at the venues. The second meeting a little closer to the big day, preferably at the reception venue, to finalise wedding day schedule, talk about solutions to any previously identified challenges, and a quick portrait of Bride & Groom.

    Photography Mood Board

    After initial meetings, I'll start to create a mood board on Pinterest and make sure Bride & Groom are invited in. This way we can all highlight the different types of poses and styles we both like and make sure that they're realised on the day.

    Final images fully edited & retouched

    It's important to note that a lot of images are taken at a wedding (on average 200 per hour) so for every hour I spend at a wedding I will usually spend 2-3 more processing the images and creating a final product. In my pricing I include the cost of sifting through the images to create a final selection. Then with those images I will Crop, colour & exposure correct, sharpen, and generally edit them to a high quality so that they pop. This part of the process is called editing. Further to that I can retouch an image (I will usually select a small number of the images to retouch and more if albums and other products are purchased). Retouching includes but is not limited to, colour correction, 'dodging & burning', removing distractions from the image, removing blemishes or making requested changes to the skin, full skin softening and poping of the eyes.

    All of the final images in full resolution, on a bespoke USB drive including limited copyright release certificate.

    Just like all of my other services, you get to keep the fully edited images I create for you to print and love. They'll be presented on a USB drive and a bespoke leather presentation box in your choise of colour and style (included in the wedding contract free of charge). I do not give away my images because I am cheap or because I do not know what to do with them, I do so because you commission me to create works for you, and not to be there to record the event and sell you prints afterwards.

    Pre Wedding Photography / Engagement Photography

    To make your wedding day run a bit more to plan and free up valuable time, why not include a session before or after the wedding for either Bridal or Bride & Groom photography. These can be done at the reception venue in full wedding dress, or at other locations around Yorkshire. This way we can be a bit more creative and reduce the time that I need from you on the wedding day itself.

    Up to 4 hours

    £279

  • Up to 4 hours of location shooting
  • Best for both Bride & Groom. Lots of time for couple and solo shots.

    Up to 2 hours

    £155

  • Up to 2 hours of location shooting
  • Best for either Bride alone or engegement shoots.

    A Skilled Second Shooter

    A second photographer allows for more guest coverage, more photos of your day and more importantly can provide you with a synchronised timeline of photographs at two locations, for example bride and groom getting ready.

    Up to 6 hours

    £450

    Up to 8 hours

    £599

    Most events are different and as such a more bespoke price may be needed to which I would gladly quote for should you provide me with the details. Either drop me an e-mail or give me a call. However to give you some idea of my event rates, please see some common options below. As always I include the below as standard (Please click to expand);

    Consultation & ‘Pre Event’ Meetings

    Some events (depending on scale) may benefit from consultations, venue visits and discussions around the time schedule, all of these meetings are included in my pricing as a matter of course. These meetings can sometimes highlight challenges that will need mitigation.

    All of the final images in full resolution, on a DVD including limited copyright release certificate.

    Some photographers like to retain all the images they take for you, forcing you to have to purchase your prints through them. They consider photographers who give away full resolution files to be cheapening photography. Well I think those people should understand that times change, and if they don't change with them they will get left behind! I'm proud to say that when you pay me to be your photographer you commission me and my time and skill. As such you will receive a full resolution copy of the final images that I create for you. Without having to pay extra for the privilege.

    Christening / Baptism Photography

    £175

    CHRISTENING PACKAGE

  • Up to 2 Hours of photography services **
  • Min. 25 Digital Images (Typically 50-60*)
  • 1080p HD Video Slide Show
    (Click here for slideshow example)
  • * Including a fully converted B&W of each image

    ** Additional hours are charged at £50.00 and can be added up front or ADHOC

    Typical order of the day: I will usually arrive at least 30 minutes before the start time to talk to the priest/vicar/rev. regarding flash photography. I'll double check the order of events and investigate the venue to highlight lighting challenges and areas for posed shots. I will then be on hand to meet you as you arrive and confirm what I will / will not be allowed to do. If posed shots are not allowed after the service then we will discuss a suitable location as an alternative.

    During the service: Typically I will stay well back and use a long lens to capture 'editorial' style images. Usually the service is fast moving and little to no time is given to the photographer, so I'll be on my toes!

    After the service: We will usually be allowed a short time to pose some shots with flash photography, either shots with your family / god parents, or posed shots of the baptism at the font, or the front of the venue.

    Even though I include all of the fully edited high resolution images with all of my photography services, I do still get complaints from time to time about 3rd party printing quality and asked for prices on prints. When you use cheaper printing services, supermarkets for example; their machines are designed for economy not quality. Not just that but the 'colour space' used by printing machines varies so much that the prints you get from anything but a professional standard printing service may look different to what you expected.

    My camera & my screens are calibrated to match the colour space of my professional printer. This means that how I intended my images to look will be how my images will look when I print them.

    I have included the most common requests that I get for prints below including some prints package prices;
