Hi I'm Steve Chatterton the owner of SJC photography based in Basingstoke Hampshire.
What makes me tick. Food and a pint of ale these days taking my wife out and visiting places when we can in-between work.
Well I try to hit that ball on a golf course badly I hasten to add! Play dads rock as they seem to call it these days but that has to be played away from my wife sadly.
So now qualified with a Licentiate qualification with the society of photographers giving more awareness that I have a good professional standard to offer.
Also just recently taken on a Ambassador role with the society of photographers too which is one of Europes leading photographic association around.
I have been taking photographs firstly with film then moving on to digital for more than 30 years…. Ah showing my age now, but this does show a love and commitment to this craft.
Many moons ago I started photography helping in a small studio taking product shots for aircraft parts mainly all black and white was required back then.This has never left me and built a foundation for my photography which I take into my work today for all my clients.
Life has taken a lot of turns as it does for lots of people so every wedding I take images at I always have a tear not because I am soppy but the shear fact that there is always a moment that resinates with me.
Proud as a family man with the happiness that this brings fills a big part of my life with my darling wife and child, so having images that capture moments is something important to me to be able to share with loved ones over time.
I also help fellow photographers from time to time in London and various counties which is nice to liaise with other creative mind sets.This keeps you up to date with whats going on in the photography circles and keeps your feet on the ground.
Commercially of late I have welcomed the AA automotive association to my client list and the BBC good food guide which I am happy to link with one of the larger companies in Basingstoke Hampshire.
I joined swpp society for training purposes as there is always something new to learn especially from master photographers and to reassure you my clients that I belong to a professional association.
It is very pleasing to have been awarded for a 20x16 print entered at the SWPP convention in London January 2017.
With these entries it's not about the accolade that comes with it but formulates a bench mark of a high standard that then rolls over to the paying clients when I am commissioned too.
Yes, I have a sense of humour I think, a bit dry but silly some people call this being a little bit mad!!!
If your fun, pleasant and totally loving life get in touch for your photography needs.
