Perfect Yellow Creative Photography. Cambridge's brightest photo studio. Lifestyle, commercial & editorial @ Ground Floor 31c Clifton Road Cb1 7EB 01223 581464
Hello there! Well we've barely had a chance to update this bio! 2010 has seen us go from nobodies with no experience to being published in the national press and receiving acclaim for our approach to makeover and portfolio photography. Proof that with a little a talent and a LOT of hard work you can succeed.
Since starting we estimate we have completed around 110 shoots of various types and taken something like 70,000 photos. We are regularly published in local and national press including more scheduled for Disorder Magazine, Big Cheese and Dominion (Terrorizer), BBC Cambs. Cambridge Evening News and many other papers and websites. Tony now publishes words and pictures on the Cambridge music scene and London gigs.
Last year Perfect Yellow were selected by Disorder Magazine to collaborate with O2 in a series called "We Could Be Heroes". This was as lot of work and also a lot of fun. 4 of the 8 shoots we did will be published in a special editition of the magazine, k displayed all over the London underground and finally exhibited at the O2 Arena in Greenwich, which we're very excited about!
More About Us:
We are husband and wife team Tony and Nicole Coleby. Tony is a photographer, writer and handle digital image retouching. Nici is also a photographer but has previously studied hairstyling/ make-up/ beauty for 3 years in her native Germany and is VERY good at it.
From the very start we have stood ourselves apart from the likes of Joe Bloggs photography. We are not "a bloke with a camera". We offer more than soulless high-street photographers, mimicking each other and producing the same-old, boring, poorly-lit, emotionless images. Quality is VERY important to us.
Sometimes, rarely these days, we will do a TFP shoot. For us, the right attitude is just as important as the right look. We are totally dedicated to this business and cannot abide time wasters. We give 100% and we need you to as well.
We are down-to-earth, friendly, honest and very creative. We are always told how enjoyable a day working with us is. Honestly, we'd be happy for you to talk to anyone we've worked with for a reference.
You will see no egocentric behaviour from us, we consider photographer and model to be two professionals on an equal level.
We won't do sleaze but we will do glamour-style shots if you're paying. We think that clothes and attitude are a lot sexier than blatant nudity.
We are perfectionists though. We edit and retouch every image you see. We won't leave you with hundreds of images straight from the camera to chose from. There are plenty who believe that quantity somehow makes up for a lack of quality. We retouch and edit again any images which will be printed. The tiny, compressed images we show on the web do not do justice to the finished product. The most common response we get when a client receives their prints is simply, "Wow!"
So Perfect Yellow are on the road to where we want it to be. The journey's begun but it will take a lot of work to keep on moving in the right direction. This is NOT a hobby, NOT a get-rich-quick scheme. This is a passion.
