Why Choose Us?

With so many portrait photography studio companies out there it’s hard to know who to pick and who to avoid. We want to make this decision simple for you. You’ve found the right place – here’s why.

At West 70 Photography we are independently owned and local to the Bristol area. We are not a large, multi-million pound company – instead we are small business who love their work and want to share their passion with our customers. We have no sales goals and there are absolutely no pushy sales tactics to get you to spend. We want to you enjoy your studio portrait photography experience and you’re welcome to spend as much or as little as you like with no pressure to buy more than you want. That’s a guarantee.

Our pricing has been carefully worked out so that we give our customers far more than any other professional portrait studio photography companies in the area. We don’t price our services really low and then hit you with a big bill afterwards, far from it. We make sure all our pricing is available from the get-go, so you know our costs and can keep to budget. We’re not vague about our pricing, we don’t hide how much things cost or mislead you. We want to be clear and honest with you so you know exactly what you’re getting and can trust us. No gimmicks, just great images at an reasonable, affordable price.

Aside from our great value we also make sure that the finished product is something you will love. We supply you with the full high resolution digital JPEG files from your portrait studio photography visit (what’re digital images?) – we don’t limit you to tiny barely-useable prints. We give you a disc or download (your choice) with JPEG‘s of your selected image(s). This way you can share it online, print it, do whatever you like for personal use. You don’t need to buy canvases, prints, or frames from us (although we do offer this service for convenience) – you’re free to share your image(s) and use them how you see fit.

With every booking we invite you to view your images afterwards in the comfort of our portrait photography studio. You can see all the images we have produced and select your favourite image(s). It’s a totally no-pressure environment and we want you to enjoy seeing the work we’ve produced. We don’t force you into buying things you want and we arrange the viewing at a time and date that’s suitable for you. This means daytime, evening, weekday or weekend – we’ll fit around you, providing we’re not already booked of course!

We make sure our professional service is relaxed and informal. We like to creative a comfortable atmosphere for your studio portrait photography experience. This means we ask if there’s any specific requirements and make sure you’re comfortable with the images we’re taking – getting to know you means we can produce better images for you. We don’t rush you through on a conveyor belt type system by hurrying you along, instead we make sure that we’re shooting images that you will love and that reflect who you are as an individual / family. No awkward images that you don’t want to take, that’s a promise. We want to create natural, fun, memorable images that fit with you and your requirements. Take a look at our gallery of sample images which show the type of work we produce. We believe in natural, real photographs to show you looking your best.

Our photographic studio is conveniently located in Downend, Bristol. Just a short distance from the M5, M4, M32 and the city centre of Bristol. There’s plenty of free parking right outside and we’re well connected to all the local bus/train/bike routes (need directions?). We are available to photograph you at our portrait studio around your schedule, we don’t have set opening hours – we operate by appointment only (apart from Tuesday’s 3pm-7pm when we welcome you to drop in to enquire about our services – see our opening hours for more information). By not having set daily opening hours means we can fit into your schedule and work around you. You can even book your studio photography photo-shoot online.

This means that you can be assured of a wonderful experience from start to finish.
