Established in Hove Jonathan Phillip is an award winning unique boutique hair salon offering all aspects of hairdressing and selected beauty treatments by a professional and creative team.

We had the pleasure to work with Jon and the team for their forthcoming marketing campaign for the salon. After the recent re-fit and refurbishment of the salon, it set the perfect background for the staff head shots.

When you arrive at Johnathan Phillip you will be offered a complimentary drink from the bar and there is lots of selection from a gin to a cup of hot chocolate with marshmallows.

But this is just one of the many little extra treats you’ll receive at the salon to make you feel at ease. Other services include of course, hairdressing from either the owner, director or one of the many talented stylists. You can have a manicure from the nail technician, sun bed and tan, keratin treatments, wax and event botox. There is also a blow-dry club!

At Phase Photography we do the majority of the PR Photography for Johnathan Phillip Hair Boutique and we LOVE IT! If you fancy popping along to get a closer look, mention “PHASE” to get a 15% discount!

The Face of Baby Expo – winner announced!

The Winner of the ‘2013’ Face of BabyExpo competition – in association with official photographer Phase Photographic – announced!

The competition was to select the very best image as taken by the experts at Phase Photographic at BabyExpoUK in Brighton in June. Hundreds of fabulous images were put before the judging panel who had the tough task of whittling them down to 10 finalists – these were then posted on the Phase Photographic Facebook page for the public to cast their vote to determine the final 3!

The prize included a fabulous family photo package courtesy of Phase Photographic worth £650+ and the winning image will be used on the promotional materials and on the website for BabyExpo Brighton 2014.

The 3 finalists were revealed as Tegan from Uckfield (mummy Lisa Alexander) India from Portslade (mummy Emma Bott) and twins (Mummy Carley Ferguson)

The final judge in the process was Rachel Waddilove –  internationally renowned childcare expert and parental advisor, who has worked with families around the world, including high profile clients such as Gwyneth Paltrow, Minnie Driver, and Lord and Lady Mountbatten. Her latest book – ‘Sleep Solutions: Quiet Nights for You and Your Child’, endorsed by Minnie Driver was published this summer.

Rachel had the tough task of choosing the winner from the final 3 and admitted it was a challenge with 3 such strong images but in the end declared the winner as a very clever picture with lovely expression on baby’s faces’. Although the competition was for the ‘Face of BabyExpo’ – organisers are delighted to announce that the winning image for 2013 was actually twins Casey and Keira from Stopting.

Suzanne Borrell, Event Director added

‘I am glad I didn’t have to decide as the images were all so beautiful but we are very happy with our winner! It’s a stunning shot, full of character and capturing two very gorgeous little babyexpo visitors! Hats off to Phase Photographic for hosting the busy onsite studio, capturing the day so well and offering such an expert service to the thousands of parents and parents-to-be who came!’

Faye from Phase Photographic added

‘It was great fun and we can’t wait to get Keira and Casey in to the studio to claim their fabulous prize!

BabyExpo Brighton will take place in June 2014. The next BabyExpo event will take place in Guildford at Surrey Sports Park on November 24 2013.

The Fairy Experience Brighton

The Fairy Experience Brighton

The Fairies have flown away from our Brighton studio for this year.

As expected the Fairy Experience completely sold out this year. We welcomed over 70 fairies and elves into the studio where they were greeted by our Fairy Queens, Anita and Emma into the fairy tale woodland of make-believe.

We had tears of happiness and joy from the most parents who viewed their little darling children projected up onto the big screen in their element. Only a few tears from the little ones (nothing to do with my cake making)! Everyone had much a great time, including all the staff here at Phase Photographic.

This exquisite children’s photography experience only comes to Brighton once a year and we are already planning our next big event for next Easter.

This year we have raised over £160 for our chosen charity Chestnut Tree House. Have a look at their website to see where all the donations have gone http://www.chestnut-tree-house.org.uk/

We also run a competition for the best dressed fairy or Elf which will be announced next week!

We would just like to say a massive thank you to all the Fairies and Elves that took part in this year’s competition and helped us raise lots of £’s for this amazing children’s charity. The fairy queen’s are working their magical fairy dust on your photographs now! A big thank you also goes out to all the nurseries and friends of the studio who have helped us to promote the event. Lastly, thank you to all the fairies and elves that were so polite about my handmade cakes which I now know were not very nice at all!

See examples of some of our fairies on your facebook page www.facebook.com/PhasePhoto

For more information regarding the fairy experience photography, please contact us at the studio. Don’t think it’s too early to book, we always sell out.
The Fairy Experience is bought to us by Anita Mason http://fairy-experience.com/

Why Hire a Pro Photographer?

Why Hire a Pro Photographer?

As beautifully written by photogether.com on the 7th February 2013

The first thing that your clients need to know when seeking someone to take photographs of their special event is what a Pro Photographer is not.

A Pro Photographer is not

  • A person with a new expensive camera
  • A friend who knows a bit about photoshop
  • Someone who gives away his images
  • A person who sells their images for not a lot      of money

OK so we can all agree what a pro photograher is not, but it is equally important that we explain to potential clients why they should employ a Pro Photographer and what they can expect to receive in return for paying your professional fees.

So here are a few bullet points for you to build into your story to potential clients.

A Pro Photographers is:-

  • An individual with an Artists eye
  • A person who understands image composition
  • Skilled in the importance of correct lighting
  • Knowledgeable about colour correction
  • Knows where to get prints and/or printing to ensure best quality images

What is most important is that your clients dramatically improve their chances of receiving images that not only hold their value and integrity for generations to come but that capture those so precious moments that may never be captured by the person with just an expensive camera.

Last but not least great images are worthless if no one views them with the best products to display your images.
