After a very busy for days for Rock It Up Photography we decided as it was the bank Holiday to take a couple of days off!  Shock Horror!  I know! But the sun was shining and the barbeque was longing to be fired up so we thought what the hell – lets do it! 

I also went to a local car boot as well to see whether there would be any treasures I could unearth to use as props for shoots.  My word what a little box of delights I found!  The find of the morning had to be this brand new masquerade mask!  £3!!! What a bargain!  I can’t wait to use it in a shoot!!!!

Pre-Uni Photoshoots!!

I’ve had a few enquiries about groups of friends having a photo shoot before they all go off to uni, I believe this is a very important time and these moments are to be treasured, so I’m announcing a special offer!  A Half price session in the studio and a huge student discount with the top 10 images on CD from the shoot.  For more information please email me rockitupphotography@gmail.com

Or drop me a message on facebook – I’m nearly at my 1000 friends mark so I may even give away something special for my 1000 friend!  Watch this space!

Catch ya soon!

We are very happy to announce our new Model Website is up and running!

Please click the link below to have a nose around!

I am happy to work with models at all levels to update their portfolios.

In order for a model to build a successful model portfolio, the model will need to produce certain model photographs to display in their model portfolio. For a new model beginning a modeling career these shots should include

             A natural headshot image with very little make-up
             A headshot image with strong make-up
             A waist up shot photographed against on a white background
             A full length body shot photographed against a white background

I have contacts in the hairdressing and make up worlds so we can tailor a package that is right for you and fits your budget. 

I am also willing to discuss the possibility of TFCD shoots as well – please just get in touch and we can talk more.

I have studio space available, and I also have portable flash stands and backdrops which can be bought to your home and save on studio fees etc.

I am a registered member of the following websites;

from this day forward until death do us part

to have and to hold from this day forward, for better or for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish; from this day forward until death do us part.

Over the past 10 years statistics show that the number of people getting married has slowly been declining.  The reasons for this varies, some think its an ‘old fashioned’ tradition which is outdated in today’s times and lifestyles.  Whilst others think that the financial obligation is too much to even contemplate.

Weddings can obviously be as big or small as you want, and obviously this can be mirrored on a financial level.  In general there are two types: civil marriage and religious marriage, and typically marriages employ a combination of both.  

Personally I am not married, but I can understand why people do it.  To have that one special day when two people declare their love to the world, openly, warmly and forever is very romantic.  To have the people who mean most to the couple there to witness the event is a very special thing.  

With the upcoming wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton and maybe even the fictional wedding of Edward Cullen and Bella Swan, who knows, maybe it will revitalize peoples interest in getting married!

I love being married.  It's so great to find that one special person you want to annoy for the rest of your life.  ~Rita Rudner

Love seems the swiftest but it is the slowest of all growths.  No man or woman really knows what perfect love is until they have been married a quarter of a century.  ~Mark Twain

So to all of you people who are either thinking about getting married, or actually getting married over the next few years, I wish you all the luck in the world, may the sun shine on your special day and you all live very happily ever after.  And of course if we can be of any help please get in touch via our Wedding Website;

Best Love
