Known for the last 70 plus years in Christchurch as a studio that can guarantee client satisfaction. A studio that can make babies smile, politicians and Real Estate Agents look their best. Families have fun in sessions with images that will look great for years on the wall.  The studio motto has always been,   ESP = “Expressions Sell Portraits”.

So I want you to look your best, the right lighting, the right look, either for your mother, partner  the general public, social media or a future employer with a curriculum vita photo.  After more than 20 years photographing people, both as a Royal New Zealand Air Force photographer working with Navy and Army  then more than 15 years downtown Christchurch making people happy, I guarantee you an image that will serve the purpose you ask me for.

Prints  and/or Digital files are available to purchase at time of session

New Location

Located in the suburb of Burwood alongside Travis Wetland and no longer a Walk-In Studio like when in Manchester St.  A great  advantage being sessions can now be booked outside normal office hours!

Great place for family or company portraits of any size. In studio for groups up to 12 or in the adjacent Natural Heritage Wetland for any size group.

Passport and social media type, business and model images are ideally produced in the studio with controlled lighting, a great variety of quick change Virtual Backgrounds and rapid viewing with digital makeovers which can include a bit of Photo-Shop work.
