View the services I offer
DB Photography offers a wide range of freelance photography services, which includes capturing photographs that are unique to the needs of the client. Projects are usually in the area of Bishop Auckland, but also expands throughout County Durham, Northern England and beyond. A selection of my stock images can be found on these pages, in my Flickr galleries or in my wildlife gallery at www.birding.daveb.co.uk.
Special Event Photography
This service is aimed towards proms, parties and other special events such as celebrations, openings, seminars & gatherings. The photo shoot includes 30-60 minutes at the clients home, where we concentrate on capturing formal and informal photographs of the family before departing for the venue or meeting place. A further 30-60 minutes are then spent capturing photographs of the client and people attending the event. On completion of the photo shoot, a selection of the original images are worked to a standard that are suitable for printing and then made available for you to download for personal use.
Product & Commercial Photography
One of my specialties is photographing products for marketing purposes. This includes images that can be used to sell items or products on websites, social media, brochures, flyers and perhaps business cards. In the past, this has included items of jewellery, unique slate art, motor vehicles, household items, items used for entertainment such as bouncy castles, landmarks and more. My aim here is to use suitable lighting and backdrops with a variety of photographic techniques to obtain the image that will sell the product or service being offered by the client.
Another specialty of mine is visiting the location of where clients are living, working, selling their products/services, etc. This could involve visiting locations such as pubs, clubs, construction sites, factories, markets, towns, villages and perhaps places of interest such as museums, preservation sites, landmarks, etc. The amount of time needed for this will vary, so please be sure to contact me for an informal discussion on your requirements.
Pet, Animal & Wildlife Photography
I have always had a passion for seeing and photographing birds, wildlife & animals in their natural surroundings. This always presents it's own challenges and I use the field craft I have learned over the years to help with capturing the perfect images of peoples pets. Whether it's photographing your pet in the comfort of their own home or capturing the action shot at the beach, local field, river, etc., I would love the opportunity of doing that for you.
If you need a photographer for your wedding and do not want to pay for the wedding packages other photographers charge, then I offer a no frills package at an affordable price. Options shown on my wedding page includes checking the venue, up to 2 hours photo editing for every hour at the venue and photographs provided in electronic format at a quality suitable for most printing options. It is worth noting that I do not specialise in wedding photography and cannot guarantee the same level of service offered by professional wedding photographers. I believe the images I take will meet most peoples needs, but due to the importance of the event, I will always advise you to look at all options before hiring my services.
Restoration of photographs
If you have any photographs that are torn, faded or marked in any way then all is not lost. Using various techniques and specialist software, photographs can be repaired to a good standard. Some of these projects can be quite complex. This example was of a photograph that had been badly burnt (half of the grooms face was burnt out). If you have an a photograph that you would like to repair, please consider letting me have a look at it and I'll see if I can help.
All the photographs I capture are regarded as being stock images and are available for sale. Topics include wildlife, nature, transportation, people, landmarks, street, industry, commercial, landscape, black & white and creative. A selection of these images can be found on these pages, in my Flickr pages, in my wildlife gallery at www.birding.daveb.co.uk or a number of websites who specialize in selling stock photographs.
