William Fitch Photography

Family Lifestyle Photography in Blackheath, Greenwich, London. Call: 0778 632 1754

My trademark shot is to have you sprawl out on a bench in the way you would watching TV.

That really epitomises my approach to family lifestyle photography: it’s outdoors and it’s natural. The advantages of shooting outdoors is that we capture the colour and the atmosphere of the day. The riotous reds, yellows and browns of autumn, the languidness of summer, the freshness of spring and on a lovely bright winter’s day when we’re all togged up there’s that feeling that hey, this is Blighty - pass the Bovril!  

There’s more to it than that of course. People come alive outdoors; children are more playful and mischievous, with parents both watchful and joining in the fun. Interaction is the key and if we’re all getting a bit muddy along the way…

A family lifestyle shoot takes around two hours and involves a couple of costume changes to add variety to the pictures. There’s quite a bit of walking around and chatting while I’m looking for the right spot to take the shot. We get to know each other and have a laugh and you’re out on the other side before you know it with a wonderful set of pictures to look forward to.

If the weather is looking particularly bad – poor light, high winds or heavy rain are the only real restrictions to an outdoor shoot – a week ahead we can always re-schedule. With around fifteen years of cycling experience I’ve come to trust the weather forecast and have developed quite a feel for the elements. We’ll go by what the Met says.

You can include the family dog in the shoot. Pet gargoyles or alligators attract a surcharge though.

I shoot with a professional Canon camera system for the best results like pin sharp clarity and luscious out of focus backgrounds. Then the photographs are processed, tweaked and re-touched using secret dark room arts.

There are several standard outcomes to the process with prices beginning at £299 for a set of five high resolution print ready files with each additional file available at £30 each.

I also offer a wide range of hand-made frames, books or gifts at attractive inclusive prices. 

"Great afternoon out with William Fitch. We wanted some pictures taken of our little family. We are new to lifestyle photography but William made us feel very comfortable and relaxed. He snapped away as we wandered around our local park and children’s swing park with the kids - you would hardly know he was there. The turn around of the pics post shoot was quick too a little over a week and the results outstanding ! We are really pleased and highly recommend William if you are looking for first class service at an affordable price. Thanks Very Much!"
