About My Business

I am available for private hire for photography mainly in Southampton and the surrounding areas. I do many different types of events and family occasions, please see below for further details and prices. To be able to capture natural photographs of people, particularly children, requires patience and I consistently receive feedback from parents that I have produced very natural photos that they are extremely happy with. I am fully mobile, so I can be hired for anything from family BBQ's to birthday parties, for parents of young children 'cake smashes' are the current trend (see below) this is made much easier by being mobile. I charge a single flat fee, agreed beforehand and charged at the end of the shoot, for the shoot and all photos. This means that you will not have to pick which photos you like from a selection of samples and then have those developed, you will simply be emailed a link to download all of the photos. I am committed to sending all photos to my clients within 72 hours. I offer as additional services, at very competitive prices, a variety of printing methods, including novelty ones such as mugs and t shirts. These services are only available for photos that I have taken. I have a data protection policy which is available upon request.

  • Affordable and Friendly Service
  • Mobile Service; enjoy the convenience of having photos taken in your own home
  • One fee for the shoot and all the photos

Services and Prices

General Photography

I am available for private hire for £50 per hour of photography. I have no hidden costs, all images are processed within 72 hours and you are emailed a link for digital download. Additional add on services are available, but not required. They are available for 3 months after the shoot, then the photos are deleted.


I am available for weddings at my standard rate of £50/hour. As in all other cases I am committed to developing the images within 72 hours. Videography of the special occasion is also available. A colleague will attend and film the wedding at a rate of £100/hour, but you are not required to book both of us for the same length of time. For example 6 hours of photography with 2 of those hours filmed would be £500! You would also receive the film in High Definition within 72 hours.

Payment Methods

I accept all major credit and debit cards, in person or over the phone, with a Worldpay card terminal. I also accept Google pay, Apple pay, and cash (in person only).

What my customers say

“I was worried about taking my son to a studio, but it was very convenient as the photographer came to my house. It was a very relaxed and friendly shoot, and the photographer was very patient with my little boy. I was happy with the pictures as they were very natural.” – Kelly, Southampton

“I was very happy with the photos of my children as they were very natural and the attention to detail was fantastic. It was much nicer to have photos of them playing in the garden than posed pictures in a studio. The photographer was very patient, and very good with my children, he sat in the garden with them until he got the photos.” – Kizzie, Southampton

    Ryland was welcoming, warming and I was put at ease after a few minutes of talking to him. Ryland had the patients of a saint as my dog can be very stubborn and not listen to anything, when she did finally cooperate he took some fantastic photos of her. It was nice that the photoshoot was taken at my local park and not in a studio and he captured her goofyness. I would highly recommend Ryland to everyone.
