Fitness and Physique photoshoots

Here is a selection of fitness and physique shots that I've done in Hull and the surrounding area.  Some ore for bodybuilders to have as a record of their progress and some are with a personal trainer needing promotional photos for his business for use on his new website and social media like Instagram.
Go to www.dbrooksphoto.co.uk and get in contact about rates and availability.


Commercial shoot for Tingdene

Tingdene make holiday homes, on a wonderfully grand scale.  Very luxurious and beautifully designed for modern living.  They wanted a photographer based in Hull as they were exhibiting their new models at a trade show in Cottingham so needed some marketing photographs while they were set up and dressed "show home" style.  Here are some of my favourites from the new Quantum and Savannah ranges.

Pets!

In the UK we are a nation of animal-lovers, and as such I get a lot people booking me for a photoshoot -  not for them - but for their beloved pet!



And why not?!  We spend a lot of time with them so why not have a few professional photos of them looking their best?

I have photographed many different animals, from rabbits up to horse, and can do studio shoots (for the smaller ones!) or come to your home or another location for an outdoor photoshoot.





Get in touch through the website to enquire about booking a place for your pet.

Helen and Andrew's wedding album

I enjoyed photographing this wedding so much!  Such a chilled-out lovely couple - lots of smiles and always up for a few more photos here and there throughout their special day, in July this year at Tickton Grange.  And now I can present them with their finished wedding album by Graphistudio, all the way from Italy!





They chose a light blue leatherette for the cover (a first for me!) which went with their colour scheme.  With dozens of colours to choose from, even in the standard ranges, it is a hard decision to make! 


As well as adding the USB of all the digital images from the day, they got the canvas, which is included in my top wedding packages.



They chose one of my favourites (though I have many from that day) - a silhouette shot from later in the afternoon.


Wedding at Rise Hall - Jemima and Garreth

One of this summer's highlights was photographing the wedding of Jemima and Garreth.  I had already done a family shoot with them and their twin babies, plus I had photographed her sister's wedding the year before, so they knew me well and how easy-going and relaxed I made them feel - important if you are already  bit nervous about having your photo taken!

I got there as hair and makeup were being done, and the rooms they had for their preparations were spacious, beautiful and had lovely light from the windows, which makes things that little bit easier!

I managed to track down groom Garreth for a quick set of portraits before he was whisked away to see the registrar, then on to the ceremony room, with the adjoining doors opened up to increase the capacity, and it was still standing room only at the back!

We were tightly packed at the front as well, so was shoulder-to-shoulder with videographer Sam from Blink Video during the ceremony.  Then we were let out into the main room fo…

Andrew and Helen's wedding at Tickton Grange

If a wedding is to have a theme, summed up in one word, this one was definitely all about the "dance"!

Andrew and Helen were lovely to work with, and enjoyed their special day immensely, not even letting an early-morning downpour of rain put them off.

They had been brought together by dance classes in Howden with Feathersteps School of Dance, learning latin and ballroom.  They went as individuals and soon became a couple.  My good friend Sophie Brooke recommended me as their wedding photographer, so they give me a call and that was that!

Between us, we even recommended the Tickton Grange hotel near Beverley when they asked for ideas on venue, needing a large capacity.  With the Rose Room as a ceremony and reception room, they also have a pleasant bar and patio area leading to the beautiful gardens.

Helen and Andrew both finished their preparations in the hotel, before the ceremony.  Colour scheme for the flowers and dresses was classic baby blue and pink, tastefully followed …
