How to take great holiday photos: hire a professional

You might be a whizz with a DSLR or rely on your smartphone for capturing your precious holiday memories, but what about doing something extra special for your next holiday? Book an afternoon with a photographer from ACT Studios for some holiday memories you’ll never forget.

Studio-based photoshoots can make lovely photos but they can become very posed. ACT Studios offer photographs of your family in a place that actually has some meaning so you can look back on them and remember the story behind every image. Remember how dad played games with the kids at Sennen Cove and how mum tripped in the sea and soaked everyone from head to toe. Reminisce on that long walk through Dartmoor with your best friends, laughing and catching up. All without worrying about taking any photographs yourself. If you’re lucky your photographer might even capture special images like a proposal, an exciting announcement or your baby’s first steps, making your chosen location even more precious. They’ll even let you bring your four legged friends on your shoot so that every member of your family can be there.

We all love capturing memories and ACT Studios feel the same way about your holiday photos. They should feel special but still capture your family’s character. They let you choose your venue and take into account the kind of photographs you're looking for. As standard, they shoot natural photographs and then portraits of you and your family together. They then print your favourite image and send it to you as part of the package. As an added extra, you can download the images through an app to share with friends and family later. When it comes to making memories (and sharing them) with your loved ones, this is perfect. 

Organise a personal shoot for your holiday from as little as £79 in a location of your choice: maybe your favourite beach or one of our beautiful holiday lets.

To book your shoot email ACT studios with the subject line 'Classic photo shoot request'. For more information visit their website.

ACT Studios are based in Cornwall, Devon and Dorset, now you've found a photographer, you just need a cottage to stay in.
