Location / Coverage: London, UK, Europe

How did the business get started and who works at Mark Seymour Photography?

I started the business over fifteen years ago and I work by myself. I have kept the company small so that I can concentrate on a smaller number of weddings, focusing on each and every bride and their unique wedding, which enables me to give the bridal couple outstanding customer service, in addition to the great set of storytelling images of their day.

Had you always wanted to be a photographer?

I’ve been a photographer really all my life; picking my first camera up at the age of just five years old. I’ve always loved capturing my family and friends, and recording the emotions and events of people’s lives.

Can you remember what the first picture you took was of?

It was of my brother with an old Kodak Box Brownie… here’s the proof!

Which areas of the UK do you cover?

Although most of the weddings I photograph are around London, Berkshire and Surrey, I photograph around the UK at a range of different locations. In addition I have been fortunate to have been asked to travel all over Europe to photograph brides’ special days.

Bride in venice

When you think of the most romantic places in the world, a place which usually comes to mind is Venice. So, how about wearing your wedding dress again after your wedding, and having pictures taking in this romantic hotspot? That’s exactly what Anna Dabek did.

With the colourful backdrop of Burano Island and Venice, these Cherish the Dress pictures, taken by Anna’s husband Martin of PhotoDabek, are amazing…

“The Cherish the Dress shoot took place in October 2011 in Venice. In fact this was a Cherish the Dress shoot for my wife, Anna.

“We married on October 8th in 2011 in Poland, and the shoot took place on Burano Island near Venice, and in Venice itself. We chose this location as Venice is a very romantic city with lots of amazing backgrounds, and the temperature and lighting conditions are great in October. Another factor was the very reasonable tickets from a low-cost airline :)

“We decided on the day to visit Burano Island first, as there are lots of lovely colourful houses and it’s not as busy as the centre of Venice, then we continued the session in Venice itself until the evening.”

Steve Brill - Brillpix Photography

Interview with: Steve Brill

Company Name: Brillpix Photography

Website: www.brillpix.com

Location / Coverage: Northamptonshire based, but always willing to travel to where exciting work takes me.

How did the business get started and who works at Brillpix Photography?

I started Brillpix Photography in 2005. I was working for a local business publication at the time, and became frustrated when photographic work was being offered and I couldn’t accept it whilst working for somebody else. So I took the leap of faith and decided that photography was the way I wanted to feed my family. The day-to-day running of the business is by myself, but both my wife and daughter are always on hand to assist if required, and will often assist at events where we may be printing on site. My daughter has a keen eye for a photograph, so I’m hoping that she will become more involved with the business over time.

Had you always wanted to be a photographer?

I have always loved taking photographs, and as a teenager I invariably had a camera in some form or another, but at that early stage it didn’t feel like a career prospect that I felt I could pursue; I thought I had to get a ‘proper job’.

Can you remember how old you were when you took your first picture? What was it of?

The first photograph I took was with a Kodak Instamatic whilst on holiday with my parents in Austria, so the first shots would probably have been of mountains. I would have been around 13 years old, and from that moment I was hooked. I recall the excitement at having to wait several days/weeks to get the films developed, and hoping that something would come out. I still smile now when looking at those old photographs, as it takes me back to a time. Sorry, getting a bit sentimental now…

Which areas of the UK do you cover?

I live in Northampton and whilst the majority of my work is within the county, I am always prepared to travel as required. For instance, one commercial assignment last year took me to Venice, but sadly those types of job do not come around often enough.
