A London family photographer, Douglas Fry is a professional photographer whose commercial work is regularly showcased by the media, Douglas has also been creating beautiful, memorable portraits of children and families for nearly 25 years. His relaxed, approachable personality allows him to form an instant rapport with families, creating a fun atmosphere that gets the best out of subjects, especially children.
Douglas will tailor the photographic schedule around your requirements, arranging the shoot for when and where it best suits you: he is completely flexible. There is no limit to the number of family members you would like photographed, Douglas will guarantee a set of high quality, beautiful images you will be delighted with.
He will meet at your home or other chosen location, assess the rooms and outside space available, working out the best natural lighting options and his potential camera angles and lens selections. For the commission, Douglas will bring along lighting equipment and a selection of Leica wide angle and telephoto lenses in order to create an excellent choice of different styles of images from which you can select your favourites.
Choices of images include portraits of individual family members, group shots of children, and group shots of the whole family in a variety of indoor and outdoor locations.
If you prefer, he can also meet you at a local park or other venue where your family is enjoying a day out or celebrating a special occasion. When filming a family gathering in full swing, Douglas uses a reportage style of photography, working without flash and at a distance to blend into the background while taking photographs discreetly, ensuring subjects do not feel self-conscious.
Douglas has been regularly commissioned to capture on film a family’s most important celebrations, including weddings, christenings, Bar and Bat Mitzvahs, birthdays and other anniversaries.
It’s worth noting that Douglas is regularly commissioned by families for an annual photoshoot that records their children each year while growing up. Often these portraits are used by our clients as family Christmas cards and as presents for their extended family.
