Photo Project Intro
Each Photography Project is an integral part to every church website. We have often been told by clients and site visitors that our pictures capture the 'heart and warmth' of the people and church life.
Explore each of our Project Highlights on this page for a better understanding of how we use photography to speak its own story of life within the church community.

Reepham Benefice. This photo project was spread over 4 months, starting with the Patronal Festival at Salle in June 2008 and culminating in a Eucharist service at Reepham Church in November. This website was shortlisted within the 'Top 10 Best Church Websites' in 2009. Over 980 images were taken, covering all aspects of church life.
Pickering Church. This project was completed over a 4 day visit to the parish in May 2009. It included photographing three services on the Sunday morning (Holy Communion, Parish Communion and Family Worship) as well as spending time with the youth group. The images were later used to create a 'magazine' feel to the website.
St Peter's, Morley. St Peter's welcomed us on three separate Sunday visits. This enabled us to photograph both the formal 'Holy Communion' service, but more importantly to capture the very informal and lively aspects of 'All Age Worship'. No formal gallery was created for St Peter's, prefering instead to 'pepper' the images across all pages.
Selby Abbey. This is our largest photo project to date. It was important to capture both the spiritual and cultural life of the Abbey, but also the beauty and timeless architecture. We visited over 4 separate weekends, photographing 'Last Night at the Proms', a wedding, a number of services and 8 hours of architectural images.
Forward in Faith, Lincs. The project with FiF Lincs included 14 parish churches spread throughout the southern half of the Diocese of Lincoln. Photographs captured a number of services, from Boston to Edenham. These churches are High-Anglican and as such provided wonderful images from the colourful and solemn worship to the wonderful architecture.
- Harling United Benefice, Norfolk. These photographs were taken in October 2009, over just one Sunday. With only one visit available to us before the website launch it was vital that we captured every aspect of church life. Other visits were made during the week to photograph the other churches within the benefice.
