The Summer of Love

Listen to Joe talk about the amazing up & coming Summer of Love

The Summer of Love carries such a powerful message of hope! It really is a reality check and an opportunity to celebrate and showcase the very thing we love more than anything else! Our children, our brothers and sisters, our parents and grandparents. Even our pets are priceless to us.

Let’s celebrate in every way we can. In the studio, capturing special moments of the beauty in our children in the magical enchanted forest. It is truly is the most special way to capture our children like nothing else can compare.

Let us make you feel like the very best version of yourself with a makeover for you and your mother or for you and your daughter. Even better still, encompass the 3 generations.of females in your family in one photo shoot.

It is all possible here at the studio, the empowerment of women is something that makes us feel fantastic, so think about how exciting this could be for you!. Think about my boudoir shoots and vintage rock and roll glamour sessions. They are so personal and designed to make the very best version of you!

The Summer Of Love also carries a vision that you can plant inside yourself. You can visualise it, how the end result will look and how it will give you something very positive to look forward to. As soon as the UK Government give us the green light we will be there like a (camera) flash!

In these uncertain times we are all feeling the strain of being apart from our families and loved ones, Try not to dwell on the negatives of the situation, give yourself something amazing to look forward to, let your natural instinct push you forward and Make a Booking with us now !

Your sitting fee is £25.00 as always but the interesting part here is that I will donate £5.00 for every booking we take between now and the end of May 2020. That’s a 20% donation for every booking taken, just to Show how much we appreciate our NHS. I personally promise that donations will be given directly to Newcastle upon Tyne NHS Trust hospitals so it stays in our region.

The Summer of Love! So many Ways to Get Inspired.

Personally, I just cant wait to meet you all!

My Camera Club

My Camera Club

My Camera Club

I am thrilled that I can pass information and assist two separate groups of photographers each month, I operate two camera clubs each month here in the studio at Joe Laws Photography, one for adults and I have the privilege of having created a Junior Camera Club that meet once each month on a Sunday.

I am so inspired by both of these groups and the feedback I have been given speaks volumes to me in regards to my passion, drive and creativity. Being able to provide tutorials using some of my favourite models is really something that is very special to me.

The purpose of my camera clubs from the offset was to have regular access to a small group of photographers where we can grow together through encouragement, in an environment where it is safe to ask questions. Being a small group allows us all to take the time to fully understand the brief and get the maximum opportunities to capture all of the inspirational images

I have been so happy with the groups and especially with the younger members of my Junior Camera Club. They are such an inspiration to me as their flair and their eye for an objective is pretty special.

I thought I would share some of my personal favourites with you to view and also some of the comments from my members.

You are an amazing photographer Joe & a real inspiration, love your work & always enjoy your tutorial training

Zoe Campbell

Speaking, as someone who has only just recently re-entered the world of photography, I would like to say that you (Joe Laws) have been a huge source of inspiration in regard to my on going journey towards understanding digital photography. Although my main areas of interest lie elsewhere, I appreciate that formal studio photography forms a vital part of the medium and Joe has made this an entertaining as well as a highly instructional experience. Thanks a million.

Geoff Bell

Due to circumstances beyond my control (COVID-19), the studio has been temporarily closed and the camera club is currently on hold.

I thoroughly enjoy the tutorial sessions, especially as the studio is not my natural habitat. The choice of model is always excellent and there is then the opportunity to produce such a creative image. I assume that because of the most recent government guidance the session scheduled for Sunday has now been postponed? A pity because Jade looks to be an exceptional model but looking forward to when we can congregate again. Take care everyone

Nick Dent

I am so looking forward to the day when I can reconvene with my amazing camera clubs and there is space for new members if this is something you are interested in.

Let me know if you would like to be added to my groups to gain access in the future.

Keira Birkett – dancer, model, fantastic young lady!

I have known Keira for quite some time now through my association with Elaine Melbourne Performing Arts School, she’s been a valued member of the school since she was a tot!

I’ve captured many images of Keira for Elaine in performances, and with photo shoots completed in the dance school.

Keira is now showing great potential as a model and we were delighted to invite her into the studio at Joe Laws Photography recently to give her some valuable experience in front of the camera.

Keira Dancer Junior Camera Club Model

Keira Birkett

Because of Keira’s background as a dancer, she has an amazing persona and fantastic ability to pose. Her understanding of movement and stature is perfect.

Whilst in the studio, Alexandra created two beautiful looks for her that were offset against what she chose to wear, the backdrops we used and the different parts of the studio I wanted to utilise.

I hope you enjoy these images and the creativity behind them and I would love you to continue to read and support Joe Laws Photography during these unprecedented times by reading the blogs and engaging with my Facebook & Instagram posts.

My first ever blog post!

My first ever blog post!


 It gives me the greatest sense of pleasure and pride to write my first blog that welcomes you in with open arms. These blogs will all become very real by relating to human stories as they unfold in my studio and out on location.

My Studio

 My Studio is so special to me as some of you will know that I was born in the bedroom above my studio and the Enchanted Studio is where my father built a Fishing Boat that was to be the First Fibre Glass Boat to be moored on the River Coquet in Amble Harbour.

 Furthermore he hand crafted the Mahogany Panels every Night for 3 Years in the Cellar Studio which is where we now do our specialist Make Overs and Boudoir sessions, so you can begin to sense my pride and sense of belonging.

 My Studio Walls are decorated with Beautiful Portraits of some of the the Wonderful People and Pets I get to meet and they have inspired me to elaborate their stories to my Clients, But No More So Than the Beautiful Portrait of my Mam on One wall and my Grand Son on the Other. these Images make me smile and really appreciate Life as I firmly believe that without our Photographs of the Ones we Love, we have nothing !



My Blog Plans

 My Blog  will showcase the wide variety of clients on a weekly visitors Page that should be really Interesting. My Next Blog will be about my Journey with Rebecca Gormley well known as Miss Newcastle, a Miss England Finalist and for her part in the recent Love Island series.

Updates will appear regularly on our Specialist Enchanted Fairies, Super Heroes, Vintage Pinups and Many More amazing Photographic Experiences.

So keep a look out for whats going on at Joe Laws Photography.
