Jules & Bean
Oxford, County (optional)(2 Reviews)
Our customers benefit from high quality, natural and very experienced photography of people and all things related to people.
We have studio space just outside Woodstock in Oxfordshire but are more than happy to come to you and shoot in a location of your choice - either outdoors or with our pop-up mobile studio.
You can choose from digital only packages to full service printing, framing, canvas and album options - the choice is yours.
We're unfussy, down to earth and know exactly how to keep our shoots fun, professional and natural, whilst never losing sight of our client's requirements - our 30 years experience has taught us to remain calm in pretty much any kind of situation which gives us plenty of time to ensure you're relaxed!

Jules & Bean Q&A
What’s the secret to taking a great photograph?
Aside from the obvious 'having a great eye', compositional skills etc, good professionals will be well prepared, be understated, have asked the client the right questions and know instinctively what they're doing - from creating the image, to relaxing the subject/s, to crowd control when required.
What questions might you ask a client when starting a new project?
1. Purpose of the shoot
2. End use (if known) e.g. a commercial client might require huge billboards, a headshot might only ever be a small file, a family might require frames or canvases whilst a bride might want an album that tells a story - it really helps to know how the pictures might get used.
3. Delivery deadlines and expectations.
4. Location of shoot (if known)
5. Do you have any reference pictures of styles etc that you like - pictures are so useful over descriptions - you're idea of 'crazy & funky' or 'creative' might be very different to ours!
What do you love most about your job?
We love people - mixing with people, calming nerves, good conversation or just a good laugh - every shoot is different. To then take those images away, 'play' with them as required on the computer and then see/hear people's reactions when they realise how good they look is always a real buzz. Putting people at ease, photographing them in a relevant manner (everyone is different) and then producing a set of strong images is a really rewarding way to earn a living.
What inspired you to start your own business?
We started as freelance photographers back in the 1980s and just never stopped........
Why should our clients choose you?
The simple answer is just that we're good at what we do (at least, we think we are!) 30 years of experience has amassed a huge amount of experience in both the private and commercial sectors, here in the UK and on many assignments abroad. We've had a fabulous journey along the way and bring that wealth of knowledge to every shoot we do.
We listen to our client's requests and do everything we can to accommodate them - our fees are fair and transparent and we always aim to offer great value.
Commercially, your photography represents your brand. Privately, you're pictures will last you and your family a lifetime - we get it, we understand it, and we work with you in order to achieve great results.
