Detheo Photography – Exciting New Developments Have Begun.

As many already know, Detheo Photography began over 7 years ago almost by accident. But we had never envisaged just what the future would hold.

The journey has been, at times, very challenging, both physically and emotionally, but nothing could destroy the passion.

In the very early days we worked from a room in our home. It was far from ideal, but it was all we had. At that time we would meet clients away from the office.  Then in 2013, with the business steadily growing,  we decided to convert our garage into a new office and studio combo.

This was to be a great asset and the business started to really take a turn as we were able to display samples of our work, host meetings and small workshops. At the same time we also started our Christmas Special Offers, shooting from the same space.

However, the business continued to evolve and over time we decided to make the move and take on our first Barn Studio.

Rustic and airy would be very simplistic words to describe it! At over 100 years old with no windows, lighting, flooring or heating it was a new challenge. But it gave us clarity on what we wanted for the future.

It accommodated many photoshoots and training sessions.

And just 12 months later we had moved into a properly converted stable block just opposite. We retained the Barn Studio name for ease and have since then seen Detheo Photography take another huge leap forward.

Our current Studio is still spacious and rustic.

We have a great shooting space too.

The transformation from those early days has been incredible and it is still quiet unbelievable to look back and see how far we have come.  But it is a journey that we have not travelled alone and the support of family and close friends has been a huge part of our success. Along the way we have faced difficult times, but we chose to learn from them and they have served to make us stronger and wiser.

2017 began with a promise to ourselves. It was to be our own commitment to dreaming bigger and, in turn, to achieving greater goals.

Today, we are proud to say, that we are well on our way to making those dreams a reality with this week seeing the building works begin on our new, purpose built office and studio.

The build is going to be quite extensive and projected to take approximately 4 months to complete. As such, business will continue as normal from the Barn Studio. However we look forward to keeping everyone updated on developments during the building phase, so make sure to follow our page on FaceBook.

Thank you to all of our clients for whom we have worked with over the years and especially to those who have been so supportive of our work. At the very core of  all our plans and developments is the ability to offer the highest, most personalised service possible and we know this new move will do just that.

Somethings Are Truly Priceless!

What value would you place on the preservation of your memories? This may sound like an odd question, however it is one that we rarely consider until such time as tragedy strikes, or life’s events take an unexpected turn.

As professional photographers we spend many years mastering the art of capturing other peoples memories. They maybe special moments captured by a Photojournalistic Wedding Photographer, or a classic portrait of a child. They maybe the unique character of a beloved family pet, photographed at their favourite location, or a stunning Portrait of a family.

And once the photography session is over and the hours of professional editing complete, the next stage is to ensure these images can be enjoyed for years to come.

After extensive research on the products available, we discovered GraphiStudio, an album supplier like no other. Not only are their products handcrafted, using some of the worlds finest materials, but their desire and commitment to providing the highest quality has seen them become the most innovative, industry market leaders.

GraphiStudio albums have graced both our office and the homes of our clients for many years, ensuring that the images of today remain the legacy of tomorrow.

Consider this…. how much will you spend on a Wedding Dress or Morning Suit? How much will you spend on the flowers to decorate your venue and the cake to share with your guests?

Yet as soon as the wedding is over, the flowers now wilted, the cake eaten and the dress packed away, other than your love for each other,  what else will stand the test of time?

Your photography is the only asset that will, not only live on long after the final dance, but that will also increase in value year after year. For as time rolls on, life will change and those we love dearly will eventually pass away.

My own father spent his final years bed bound, imprisoned by the effects of MS, Parkinsons and Alzheimer’s, before he sadly passed away. So how valuable are these images now? In truth, they are priceless!

This is why we have resisted the ever evolving trend of supplying digital only copies within our Wedding Photography Collections. Whilst we are happy to include digital versions, we will only do so once an album has been created.

The hours of design, and weeks of handcrafting are not simply to create a book of the finest paper and most beautiful leather, or even metal, covers. When we create an album, we are creating a unique, storybook, which within its pages, will preserve detailed memories to be enjoyed for many years, and treasured long after we have left this world behind.

For us we are not merely designing a book, we are crafting a priceless legacy for future generations.
