 Welcome to J C Baker Photography Chippenham. 

We are based in Chippenham in the heart of Wiltshire which is surrounded by beautiful countryside and locations, for photography. We cover Wiltshire the surrounding areas, but will also consider other areas.

With my photography, I like nothing better than capturing any moment that has anything natural in the scene. It gives the photos a more natural feel to them, rather than a white background from a photography studio. By having a natural background to your photo especially with a scene which has personal fond memories for you, it will give your photography session a more magical feel to your photos and evoke great memories for you to keep.

At J C Baker Photography, we will always discuss with you what your requirements are. This is everything from the location, the people, or animals, right through to any buildings, cars etc, you want in the photo session. We will achieve the look of the photo, the feel of emotions and an understanding of what you want the final image to achieve for you. We believe in making your photo session a magical experience with images you will want to show to everyone.

Our pre-photoshoot chats are informal, which is a great way for me to understand your requirements and so you feel relaxed before we start taking photos for you. It also gives me an opportunity to know more about yourselves which will help with understanding the mood you want to capture during the photography shoot. It also helps with relaxing during the shoot, which will give your photos a more natural look to them.

Film Photography

We do all kinds of photography, you will find a list on “Photography service” page. We like to make photography fun and relaxed for everyone involved, which is why we insist on a pre-photography shoot meeting. Don’t worry, this is only an informal chat to help us all get to know each other better. That way when we are actually doing the photoshoot we won’t feel like strangers or awkward.

I believe the actual photo shoot to be relaxed and I also like to stay in the background, so I don’t distract you. Don’t worry I won’t be bossing you about or telling you to do certain possess, as I believe it should all be natural and this gives the final image a more magical look to them. It’s best if I just move around you, while you all do what you want, within reason. I can give you guidance etc, during the informal pre-photoshoot meeting and also at the photography session if required. 

Once the photography shoot has finished I can show you a few of the photos straight off the camera if required, but I try and not do this too much as it can look a lot different on the camera and the image is smaller, so it tends not to give the best look. I will then stay with you and talk about how the photo shoot went and if you’re happy with the way it all went. If for some reason, you think of another angle you would like, I am happy to stay behind and do this.

Allot of factors can make me choose the angles I chose, this can be lighting, Pet portrait photographybackgrounds and the overall look of the photo amongst other factors. Once the photoshoot has completely finished I will then go home and download the files onto my computer. Once these have uploaded I will start to work post editing your photoshoot images. I use Lightroom which is a photo editing software, this gives me full control of how to bring back the colours and do some retouching to your images before I show you the final images from your photography session.

 

If you would like to make an enquiry about a photography session, please fill the “Contact Form” out and I will get back to you asap. Sometimes I may not be able to get back to you for a day or two as I may be out on location for a  shoot. Or you can call me by phone, which is sometimes easier.

Here are some of our photos from our Facebook account. You can follow us on Facebook with the link below.

Longleat Tiger. It's hard to get a good photo of these as they spend most of their time lazing around and I've not seen them on the move very often and when I do I'm in the wrong place. ...

It was great to see the Wolves at Longleat awake and running around. They are usually asleep, so we caught them at a good time. ...
