Welcome to the website of north east wedding photographer Gerard Turner.I am a qualified wedding portrait and events photographer based at Shotley Bridge near Consett in County Durham.
I set up In Focus Studio in 2010 and I have steadily grown a successful wedding business gaining work mainly from referrals and recommendations. I have worked hard to create a quality product and kept pace with changing trends and camera advances.
I have extensive photography experience and have been fully trained in the latest digital imaging and processing techniques,
I truly enjoy every wedding as much as the couple themselves and give absolutely 100% to each and every one of them. It,s a very true saying that "every wedding is different" and whether its a small intimate gathering of close family and friends,or a grand affair that has been years in the planning,I love being there capturing the moments. I worked as a manager for many years and my people skills help when organising the guests.
My wife Anne and I work as a team and people often comment on how we have contributed to the day itself. We like a laugh and always try to make the most of the venue and the people we are with.I capture the whole range of images from the day including the all important informal pictures of your friends and family enjoying themselves.
Why should you choose me to share what will possibly be the greatest day of your life?
I have covered many of the regions top venues, including, Lumley Castle, Langley Castle, Matfen Hall, Ramside Hotel, Slaley Hall, Beamish Hall.
As a full time professional I can dedicate my time to getting your work back to you. This is important because part time photographers can easily end up with a backlog of work during busy periods.
How often have you heard it took ages to get my wedding photographs.
My Wedding albums are created to the highest standards and all the images in them undergo post processing to make sure you look your best and all distractions are removed.
