About Birchall Photographic

You would expect to have to visit a big city to have such beautiful photographs taken, so why come to Ruthin?

Why is it then, that such specialized skills to be found at this small, rural, family-run photographic studio in the heart of the beautiful Vale of Clwyd?

Part of the answer can be found in a reply given by Chris in a interview with the local newspaper : “I would sooner be making a decent living in such a beautiful part of the country, than become a millionaire caught up in the rat-race of London”, he said. “In any case we are quite accessible, being just 35 minutes by road from Chester and the M6 motorway.  Much of the North West, the Midlands and Wales is less than a two hour drive.

Boundless enthusiasm and energy, combined with years of experience undertaking editorial and fashion assignments for regional and national newspapers and women’s magazines, is what now makes this couple the region’s leading specialists.

Their portrait photography has won countless national and international awards, including the prestigious “Kodak UK Open Portrait Photographer of the Year”.

Personal Attention
Being a small family business, you get personal attention from the two people whose very reputation hangs upon each and every photo session they undertake.

Jayne and Chris listen carefully to the way you want to look in your pictures.

When it comes to make-up and hair styling for your photo shoot, for instance, you may want a very natural look. Or you may yearn for a highly sophisticated image – just like in the glossy fashion and beauty magazines. Skilfully applied beauty products will ensure the perfect look.

Value for Money
It’s a well known fact that top quality photography doesn’t come cheap. Just look at the prices being charged by studios such as Venture Portraits and Yaffe Fusion.  However, operating a small rural portrait studio (without huge city centre overheads) enables Jayne and Chris to offer exceptional quality at affordable prices.

Not having to cut corners enables them to produce hand-print quality, retouched and cosmetically enhanced portraits, often at less than half the price charged by many of their ‘big name’ competitors.
