Harrogate Portrait Photography: Creative images – distinctive style

We specialise in photographing people. Our portrait photography covers lifestyle (family pictures taken in a contemporary style), editorial photography, commercial images, stock for picture libraries, coverage of the arts and sport, both live action and “sportraits.” This site has a section dedicated to each of these areas and you can find tabs linking to them at the top of this page.

Alternatively, why not give us a call, for free (from most UK landlines) now on 0800 880 660 2?

Family pictures

We love taking family pictures and consider it an honour and a privilege every time we are commissioned to record a family’s future memories. Our creative images and contemporary style are a perfect match for capturing today’s lifestyle.

We treat every photo session with the same respect and importance so you get the same attention to detail as we’d lavish on one of our celebrity shoots, but at the same time making sure it’s all fun and laid back so that you’re relaxed and we get the best results. Our pricing structure is simple, offers great value and there’s a package to suit every budget. Best of all, all our packages give you a framed print or canvas and there’s no obligation or pressure to buy anything else. There’s no “hard sell” after a shoot with Barney Allen Photography, and that’s a promise.
