Professional Isle of Wight Portrait Photographer, offering great value, affordable packages, with a friendly and convenient service.

Isle of Wight family portraits from Jason Swain, relaxed, informal, creative photography that captures the real you. It’s not about the studio and manufactured smiles, its all about using the natural light and amazing real locations we have all around us on the Isle of Wight. Whether its your favourite beach or cliff-top walk, or even the the comfort of your own home & garden, Jason uses the art of storytelling and reportage to capture those all-important fleeting moments of genuine family life that will become your treasured memories for ever.

Isle of Wight Portrait Photography

Studio photography is great if the weather is terrible, or you’re not fortunate enough to be surrounded by stunning natural settings, and if that’s your preference Jason can get out the light stands and backdrops. But these days many people are increasingly uncomfortable with the idea of posed photos and prefer a natural style that shows them as real people enjoying real moments with their loved ones, capturing priceless memories. If that sounds more like your kind of thing, read on.

How it works, you meet at a favourite spot for your family, you hang out and have fun with your loved ones enjoying the day as you usually would, and Jason takes the photos without too much fuss. As a dedicated creative professional Jason’s friendly and flexible, calm and reassuring demeanour helps keep any frayed nerves at bay and his years of experience shooting commercially mean he knows exactly how to get the best from his subjects, plus he is great with kids.

Pick the package that suits you best and get in touch with Jason to arrange a time and location that suits you. As you’ll see from the gallery, the island has no shortage of lovely beaches and areas of outstanding natural beauty that make for the perfect backdrop.

Here are a few of the things people have said about the service I provide when you book a family photo session.

"Jason did a great job with our photo shoot, we're really pleased with the pics and he was a pleasure to deal with. Very easy going, flexible and accommodating. If you need photos done in the Isle of Wight he's your man."
"On holiday on Isle of Wight early this month we won a photoshoot with Jason in a competition. The whole process from first contact to our prints and DVD went swimmingly and took less than a week. All that included posting to our address in South Yorkshire. Jason is an excellent photographer and is very personable as he works. We felt completely at ease throughout and cannot praise him enough. We would recommend him without hesitation."
" Our family was on a holiday of a lifetime - three week trip to England from Canada. We decided family photos on the Isle of Wight would be an amazing way to remember such a special time. Jason did not disappoint. We had a great time, the kids had fun eating ice cream and playing in the surf, and we have beautiful photos to remember our time spent on the Isle. Jason went out of his way to ensure we picked a day with good weather, made us all feel at ease, captured some beautiful moments, and had the finished dvd ready for pick up before our holiday was over. Thanks for a great experience!"
" We hired Jason to take some family pictures for my mum's birthday. He did a fantastic job and we are all absolutely thrilled with the results. He was friendly and professional and helped make the photo shoot fun, even our camera shy members felt very relaxed! Our photos were ready very quickly and not only were they delivered to a very high standard but also captured the moment and told our family story wonderfully. I highly recommend Jason and we look forward to using him again in the future!"
" We used Jason for a family photo shoot for my Mum's birthday whilst we were on holiday on the Isle of Wight. Jason captured some lovely natural shots of the little ones playing as well as some more formal group shots. I would recommend him to other people."

* A note on pricing and comparing quotes! Please don’t be fooled by cheap, or even supposedly free shoots, that you might see advertised elsewhere, take the time to read the small print first, in some circumstances the copyright of the images may not be yours, so you have to buy their prints, and they can be incredibly expensive, you could end up spending over £500 to get the same quantity and size prints as what comes as standard in my platinum package for half the price.

How i like to work is to be completely upfront with all the costs and benefits, ensuring you don’t get a nasty shock when it comes to printing the photos you fall in love with. All of the packages includes giving you ALL of the hi-res edited images so you can do what you want with them in the future, whether thats putting them on facebook, emailing them to relatives or printing them to canvas or cushions or anything else you choose. I believe once the shoot is done that the photos are all yours!
