Yorkshire Post - YP Magazine - - Front Page -

THE cam­era doesn’t lie, and when you come to Port­fo­lio Stu­dios you will see ex­actly how beau­ti­ful you are.

Ladies will book a fash­ion or boudoir shoot at the stu­dio, based in the tran­quil grounds of The Menagerie, in Escrick, York, for a va­ri­ety of rea­sons, such as to cap­ture a time in their lives or to sim­ply com­plete a per­sonal am­bi­tion.

What they ex­pect is to leave with a pic­ture of them­selves look­ing stun­ning.

What they also get, hav­ing been pam­pered with a hair and make-up ses­sion be­fore tal­ented pho­tog­ra­pher Brendan Hop­kin­son puts any nerves to rest, is to feel sen­sa­tional about them­selves.

This lasts long af­ter the ex­pe­ri­ence, with the pic­tures serv­ing as a beau­ti­ful re­minder.

Now, Port­fo­lio Stu­dios pre­sents its fab­u­lous Pic­tures and Cream pack­age, where two people, be it friends, fam­ily or cou­ples, are able to en­joy a make-over, fash­ion or boudoir photo shoot, a cream tea and one free im­age for just £25.

A warm wel­come and a chilled glass of cham­pagne on ar­rival sets the tone for the day, with the stu­dio’s look book pro­vid­ing you with plenty of ideas be­fore the stylists cre­ate your de­sired look.

Whether you dare to boudoir, with a taste­ful shoot to show off your sul­try side, or dress your best and re­lease your in­ner fash­ion model, Brendan will – us­ing the stu­dio’s wealth of back­grounds and props and you as his in­spi­ra­tion – cap­ture you in a way you have never seen be­fore.

Be­fore you get to see the pic­tures, a cream tea will be wait­ing for you at the nearby pic­turesque Par­son­age Coun­try House Ho­tel and Spa.

This is a time to re­lax, be it at The Par­son­age or in the peace­ful grounds of The Menagerie, where Port­fo­lio Stu­dios moved to in April hav­ing been based on Mick­le­gate in York since it was es­tab­lished in 2011.

Yet, the ex­cite­ment will be build­ing as you wait for the mo­ment of truth.

Back at Port­fo­lio Stu­dios, the pic­tures are re­vealed in the view­ing room.

The re­sults are sim­ply as­tound­ing.

“The big­gest re­sult people get is hav­ing their con­fi­dence built,” ex­plains Alistair Hop­kin­son, who set-up Port­fo­lio Stu­dios with son Brendan.

“They walk out of here feel­ing a mil­lion dol­lars about them­selves. What we aim to do is give our cus­tomers pho­tos they won’t get any­where else.”

The re­fer­ral rate for the stu­dio is im­mense, as is the re­peat busi­ness it sees from its very happy cus­tomers. In the three years Port­fo­lio Stu­dios has been open, it has seen people book for their sixth photo shoot, from ‘bump shots’ when preg­nant to fun fam­ily por­traits, which in­clude the pets – and even just to re­peat the ex­pe­ri­ence again.

All of its photo pack­age prices, where you re­ceive the dig­i­tal im­age, are avail­able to view on­line, with no pres­sure sales at all.

“The value is sen­sa­tional,” Alistair adds, “but the ex­pe­ri­ence is even bet­ter.”

Port­fo­lio Stu­dios is lo­cated at The Menagerie, Escrick, York, YO19 6ET (just eight min­utes past the York De­signer Out­let. Tele­phone: 01904 728762. To view Port­fo­lio Stu­dios’s work, visit www.port­fo­lios­tu­dios. co.uk.

Cap­ture a spe­cial day with a loved one beau­ti­fully with a make-over, photo shoot and cream tea.
