Castle Captures - Creative Portrait Session

A 2-hour Portrait Experience at Newcastle Castle by Ben Smith, Photography North

Join me at Newcastle Castle as we transform this 800 year-old historic icon, that gave Newcastle its name, into our very own photo studio. This phenomenal venue will give opportunity for me to create some truly amazing portraits of you and / or your loved ones.


Book one of the 15 sessions and you will be entered into a competition to receive the whole photoshoot for FREE. That's a 1 in 15 chance - not bad :)

Here's what I can do for you:

Picturesque portraits of just you,
Romantic captures of you and a loved one,
Family portraits that bring to life through a lens your family's real character, 
Professional headshots that will make you stand out from the crowd
Bespoke themed portraits - let's work together on your vision of the perfect portrait

Every time I photograph in the Castle I get madly excitied. The venue is so atmospheric with fanastic natural light and rustic, powerful backdrops. It's this unique nature of the Castle that will allow me to capture you and / or your family in a new light. Something very different to your usual studio photographs. Have a look at my portfolio to see the sort of work I have carried out to date: 

I know this venue inside out. Every nook and cranny. I have photographed here for events, ad campaigns and medieval fashion shots! In the two hours that we spend in the castle you will be amazed by the rugged history of this Norman fortress and we will stage up to 9 separate location shoots to make best use of what is available from the Castle. I work at a casual pace, so that you and I can enjoy the experience and so that I can perfect the shots for you. I will explain what I am doing and why as we go around.

What you pay and what you get:

The full session is £150.00. Booking on Eventbrite means you book your time-slot by paying a £25.00 non-refundable booking fee. You will need to pay £125.00 photoshoot fee on the day etiher by cash or card. Once purchased I will contact you to tell you what you need to do on the day including some guidance on choice of clothing etc.

No confusing packages to choose from. This is my art and I have one price - £150.00 per 2 hour session. From the photoshoot you will receive a number of quality portraits, specially selected and professionally edited by me. You will receive these as digital images. If you would like advice on printing, mounting and framing I am happy to recommend products to you but I do not upsell these like many studios do! 


No parties for any one shoot greater than 5 persons.
