There’s something about portrait photography that overturns expectations. Sometimes there’s a sense of authority, a certain grace that’s normally not evident, or even a dash of playfulness that catches everyone unawares but doesn’t escape the photographer. My name is John and I’m a professional photographer specializing in portraits.

With nine years of experience and a mix of fine technical skills and talent for revealing the unexpected, I’ve built a reputation of creating portraits that showcase different facets of an individual’s personality – or that of their loved ones. I’m passionate about producing high quality and stunning images that have the capacity to delight and thrill my clients. From toddlers eagerly soaking up the world around them to family portraits that disclose the warmth of close bonds, my portraits are like an autobiographical imprint of a certain moment in time.

I conduct my shoots in the comfort of your own home or even your favorite location where you feel absolutely relaxed. I’m also available to shoot for special events and document these with both natural and posed shots.

During each photo session, you will be able to view the photos as we proceed so you can make sure we get the best shots from the session. I never impose a minimum quantity of photos and keep clicking until you are satisfied. I place a great value on time and so not only am I punctual, I also deliver the pictures on time.

If you’re seeking a photographer to frame your baby during those precious early months or you’d like to reward a family member with a formal or experimental photo session, please get in touch – I’ll be glad to be of service.

What can I say Johnn is a true gentleman. He was considerate, thoughtful and patient throughout our special night asking questions about who we wanted special photographs with. He wondered round all night taking snaps here and there as well whilst people danced or chatted.
The next day he sent me a few snaps he had taken as a taster if what was to come. We can't wait. I would recommend John to anyone who wanted those special memories. He is worth every penny. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

I know John now for a few years meeting him at different venues. About 5 years ago when my first son was a baby he made a few beautiful photos that now proudly decorate my wall. Since then I never look back. When it came to a point to find photographer for christening of my second son John was the first to call. He listens all your wishes and captured moments that will ever memorise us about this special time. Also our family visited his stand during Christmas time at one of the schools to make another fantastic family photo. We highly recommend John as a proffecional photographer

John communication prior to the wedding was great and very reassuring.
On the day he was very professional and more than accommodating with the photo shoots.
The after care service / communication fully supported the professionalism of the day.
Would I recommend John Devey Photography ? Absolutely without a doubt.

John is a lovely man and very proffesional. He photograph's the children at the pre-school that I work at. He does the Christmas photo's and graduation photo's of the children. All the staff and the children are at ease with John as he is so friendly towards everyone. He gets really good photo's of the children which look really natural. John has also done a portfolio for my daughter when she wanted to be a model. the photo's were great! We were very pleased with them indeed.
Also John photographed my daughter and her friends at her prom night. Again the photo's were fantastic and we found it hard to choose the ones we wanted as they were all so good.
I have already booked him for my other daughter's prom night, which is in June. I know we will not be disappointed with the photo's.

John Devey Photography replied:
Hi Cathy Thank You for the review,it is appreciated,it was a pleasure to be asked to complete a portfolio for your daughter,and booked for the prom.I look forward to meeting you in June to complete photos for your other daughter's prom.

John Devey Photography Q&A

John Devey Photography Q&A

What’s the secret to taking a great photograph?

The Photo should show emotion, ie: happiness, sadness or curiosity, It should capture the person's personality the photograph should appear natural and tell a story about the person.
Get the person relaxed by talking to them so to distract from the fact they are in front of the camera,

What questions might you ask a client when starting a new project?

1) Are there any things that you must have in the images.
2) How many people will be involved also the age groups.
3) How do you require the finished images ie: Printed photographs.CD's or e-mailed.
4) Have you been photographed before by Professional
5) Do you have a specific location you would like for your session.
6) Is there any must have photo you would like for me to capture during the photo session.

What do you love most about your job?

I love the fun working with people, capturing the moments and the emotions, seeing the smiles as we work through the photo shoot. and the satisfaction I get when the final photographs have arrived and know I have achieved what I set out to do, you could say and it is true Photography is my passion.

What inspired you to start your own business?

I bought my first Digital Camera about ten years ago and was asked by a local playgroup to take pictures for them of the nativity play. and I found this fun working with children, I would show them the photos on the laptop as they are transferred directly from the camera, and to see the smiles on their faces summed it up.
I started to develop my own style and techniques for portraits..and I started to get more groups requesting my services by word of mouth.
I now have a number of groups to take twice a year and a number of requests from private individuals for family shoots, and events.

Why should our clients choose you?

Professional...in the field of Digital photography.
Experienced in dealing with Clients.
Mobile I come to your location complete with Backdrops, Lighting etc.
I use the best editing programme to bring out the best effects in every shot ready to send to the printer, who checks every photo for quality before printing, any problems the printer contacts me to correct any fault. this guarantees customer satisfaction.
I am dedicated..and work with you before and after the shoot to make sure you are completely satisfied with the shoot and finished photographs.
