Minitographers, guided photo walks and workshops for little people and their parents

Is your child a Minitographer?

So what is it?   The first Minitographers event will be on the 12/01/14 in Jesmond Dene at 1pm, there are only 10 places available, kids must have something to take photos with but it doesn't have to be a camera, it could be an iPad or a camera phone. 

Quite simply, it's creative photography so nothing too technical and as a parent why not bring along your own camera, I'm sure you'll pick up the some brilliant tips and enjoy our big walk through Jesmond Dene which will last 2-3 hours.

As guidance these special Minitographer days are suitable from 5 years - 13 years and the best bit, after the day you'll be able to email me your childs favourite shot, I'll work some magic and you'll receive back a framed and mounted 7x5 print (worth £29.99) to put on your wall.

Further dates and locations will be announced so you can always buy a gift certificate now for Christmas but join us on a future session (as long as you let me know when the dates are announced for the Minitographers session you would like)

The Inaugral Minitographers guided photo walk is filling fast, I announced this 2 days ago and already there are only 6 places remaining

For the first session everyone will benefit from a preferential rate of only £45 per parent and child (that's £45 for both of them not each) This price will revert to £50 per parent and Child on 01/01/14 so get your gift certificates now and save!

Age range is 5-13 but that's only a guide, if you think your smaller child would like to do it and they don't mind a 2-3 hour walk in Jesmond Dene on a winters day then by all means sign them up.

To sign up you must book in advance and I'll prepare you a Minitographers gift certificate so perfect for Christmas/Birthdays or just because you want to spend a fun afternoon with your little person having a fabulous time!

Don't fancy Jesmond Dene on 12/1, the next date after that will be on Saturday 8th of February when we'll be meeting in the cafe at Sage Gateshead and spending 2-3 hours walking and taking photographs around Newcastle, who knows what we'll get up to!

Just remember it's creative photography, nothing too technical for the little people but parents should be able to pick my brains for some hints and tips.

To buy your gift certificate or if you have any questions or queries (it's an E-Voucher so it's all done by email) please email

Autumnal Mini Sessions 2013 with Newcastle Photographer Mandy Charlton

It's Autumn, my favourite time to shoot dear reader and being a photographer in Newcastle means I have access to some of the prettiest and most autumnal scenes around the North East of England.  I started Mini Sessions last year and this year is busy, busy and even more busy so if you see a session you would love then I advise early booking.  Here's the remaining availability for the next couple of weekends

Saturday 12th October - Saltwell Park - 10.30am, 11, 11.30, 1, 1.30pm
Sunday 13th October - Jesmond Dene - 2pm, 2.30pm

Mini sessions are £20 including your favourite image as a 7x5, web gallery for 30 days and 15% off for the first week your gallery is live and I sell a full range of prints, frames, canvases and now introducing photo gifts which start at just £6 for a keyring or fridge magnet, perfect for sending to relatives through the post or they make great stocking fillers.

To book a mini session all you have to do is drop me an email or you can contact me through my website or Facebook Business Page

and here's some images I've shot over the last couple of weeks -

oh and I even shot a wedding at the very beautiful Newton Hall, what a wonderful place to get married, if you're organising your wedding ask to speak to Pam, she is the loveliest wedding co-ordinator, she even organised my very own vow renewal at As You Like It back in 2010!

Mini sessions are for babies who can sit up unaided (or there or there abouts) kids of all ages, families, pets or all of them together.

2 weeks in Puerto Rico, Gran Canaria

It's been a month since I last blogged Dear Reader, please forgive me for I have a very good reason, I've been on holiday!!

Yes for the first time in 13 years we had a 2 week family holiday to sunny Gran Canaria or as I like to call it 1987!!

Going to Gran Canaria is like re-visiting the 80's, not quite Blackpool but pretty touristy with a lot of Variety acts!

So here's a few photos from our trip and I should add that I didn't take my proper camera, for a couple of weeks I managed with my Samsung Galaxy camera which is actually quite a nifty little thing!

and so that was it, our holiday, 13 years in the making over in just 14 days which seemed to speed past us faster than we could blink.
