Congratulations to Stephen Hands on another SuperDog of the Month winning entry!
Stephen’s image of Jet the Lurcher was popular with the public, photographer, and our sponsor judges, which means Jet’s owner will shortly receive a winner’s certificate and a £25 Pets at Home voucher to celebrate their success. Jet’s image will also receive automatic entry into the 2023 SuperDog of the Year competition where they could win £1000!
After spending 37 years working in the City as a broker, Stephen decided to hang up the phone and pick up the camera. Photography had always been his passion from an early age, and Stephen decided to branch out as a full-time photographer with Barrett & Coe, the experienced and respected group of portrait photographers. Stephen says; “My life has changed completely. Working on Saturdays is a first for me, but it comes with the satisfaction of running my own business. One of the best things about it is meeting new families and creating images that they love. To see the reaction from clients when they see my work is priceless and makes all the hard work worthwhile!”
Stephen’s studio is based on an industrial park, situated on the ground floor which is a help to mums with prams and any person with disabilities, as they can easily get into the studio. It is only 10 mins drive from Upminster town centre which has a large selection of family-friendly coffee shops and restaurants. There are local attractions including Old MacDonalds Farm, Brentwood. The studio is easy to access from the A127 and B186. Buses stop outside the main entrance to the estate, and it is 10 mins from Upminster Overground and District Line services. Lastly, the area has some fine country pubs to visit after the shoot to complete the family experience!
