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

Isle of Wight Portrait Photographer

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.

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, get in touch...

Here are a few of the things people have said about my portrait photography and the service I provide.

  • “My partner and I used Jason in July 2018 for our proposal shoot. WOW...just WOW. I have never had anyone so professional and know how to, and what to, advise every step of the way. An incredible guy who will make you feel completely comfortable, whilst ensuring every shot is perfect. I would highly recommend Jason!”
  • “We hired Jason to take some family pictures while on holiday in Ventnor on the Isle of Wight. From first contact through to final images, he was incredibly helpful. He was personable and immediately put us all at ease. He was as great with the children and we have lots of happy, smiling shots. We had requests in terms of the combination of shots we wanted and he rattled through our list. We felt incredibly fortunate to receive the images through in less than 24 hours and are delighted with the results. They are a happy reminder of a happy holiday. I wouldn't hesitate to use Jason again or recommend him to friends and family.”
  • “We used Jason for a family weekend in Seaview on the Isle of Wight for my parents ruby wedding anniversary as a present to them. This involved 14 people with 4 being very young kids for a photo shoot on the beach. We all thought he was absolutely fantastic particularly the calm way he got the kids feeling at ease which has allowed him to get fantastic shots of them having fun and playing on the beach. He did a nice combination of formal and action shots using the background scenes to a great effect. We would all thoroughly recommend Jason and happily use him again”
  • “If you are looking for fantastic value for money, a fun, relaxed but always-professional photographer, super-quick delivery of your final images, and pictures that will be so nice, you'll look twice to see if it is really you, you came to the right place! Jason Swain did a wedding anniversary shoot on the beach for us a week ago, and we are so happy with the results - we can highly recommend him!”
  • “Great photos taken of my family on the beach - really put us all at ease to achieve some lovely relaxed shots.”
  • “Jason provides a great service and wonderful photos. Reliable and very easy to deal with! Highly recommended!”
  • “Awesome morning at Compton Bay. The family had never done a photo shoot before and Jason made us all feel very relaxed 😎 and we just had a fun hour on the beach and some beautiful natural shots were taken. Lasting memories which the family love. Wonderful scenery, great photographer and we will definitely be returning. Thanks again Jason.”
  • “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.”

Digital only service available at £95/hr (plus traveling time)

Additional prints and alternative sizes at very competitive rates (i.e.; large 18” x 10” prints at £8.99)

* A note on pricing-table 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!
