About Dare to Bare – Glamour Photography

Dare to Bare  is a new specialist glamour photography site showing the range of Glamour Photography styles on offer from the crew at Sammy Southall Photography Ltd of Kidderminster. YES we shoot terrific glamour photography, but by far the  majority of work in this field is in our Model Style & Fashion Makeovers. Plenty of these are given as presents & we are happy to make a personalised ” Fashion Style or Glamour Style Shoot ” gift voucher in case you are looking for a special gift as a treat or indulgence.

We have created glamour and fashion style makeover shoots & model portfolios for all ages from 18 to 50 we can also offer mini makeover parties for up to five girls at a time! The team is made up of myself Sam a fully qualified professional photographer with 30 years experience of capturing stunning images of females, Jane my partner & Studio Manager who is also a fine photographer and looks after the viewing & choice stage & Bev Beard a former model herself  and she is a fully qualified highly experienced professional makeup artist & hair stylist – all of us love what they do & work very well together.

So what should you expect from a Dare to Bare Glamour Photography shoot or a makeover & fashion style photoshoot experience. After a special welcome to our relaxed, comfortable & professional photographic studio based at our home in Kidderminster, Worcestershire just twenty min’s from Junc’s 3, 4, 6 of the M5 it’s very straightforward to find us, we’ll get you a drink, get some music on and then consult with you about your clothes, the style & looks you are trying to accomplish, your makeup and hair styles you want for your  shoot.

Next comes the make up and hair styling – Bev has her own special makeup & hair styling room & this takes around 45 to 60 minutes you just kick back and relax while Bev creates the look you are after. You can have your makeup done but Bev is very expert at making a great style for your hair as well. Important thing is don’t arrive with much make up on already ( best to arrive with none at all in case you can bear it ) & no hair product in your hair & let Bev work her magic on you.

Next comes the actual shoot – this is anywhere between 45 min’s & 120 minutes according to which glamour or  makeover package you have chosen & the number of clothes changes you have ( also how fast you are in getting changed! ) The music is going – the lights are on the props are in place we will then be working quickly & professionally to capture the images that are going to make you look “Wow”  We often take between 100 & 200 images through the shoot.

After the shoot we will arrange a time for you to come back and view your images or in some cases we may be able to offer instant viewing when you will get to relax in our VIP viewing room with twin 32″ BIG Screen monitors when you can see all of your pictures so that you can pick your favourite’s for your prints, portfolio or wallart. There is absolutely no pressure to buy any additional pictures but of  course you can in case you wish.  We also offer great all the prices are inclusive of VAT.

We create fabulous on screen slide shows and you select the best ones, we will show you the many different ways you can have your finished prints such as Colour, black and white, sepia, the new ” Ice Blue”, colorise, posterised, with infrared effects or hand tinted etc, we also show you how we can retouch and airbrush your shots for that real super model look. You tell us what you want and your order is usually ready within 2 to 3 weeks. How lovely easy and simple is that!
