About Bill Bowman




I have photographed literally thousands of weddings all over the world. I concentrate on Herts, Beds, Bucks and Northants, but I am happy to travel anywhere in the UK or The Continent within existing price packages. Clients just pay airfares and bandb as extras.

My style is moden, fun and romantic with a hint of traditional. I usually start at the getting ready stage and stay through the speeches.....longer if required by negotiation. Once booked you are entitled to a pre wedding shoot and thereafter EVERY year come to my studio for a FREE family portrait. You just pay for any prints.

Within a couple of days of your wedding all images are posted on a website for you and your guests to view. Within a week I supply a properly bound proof book of all images taken which you keep.

My books are designed by me and printed and hand finished in Italy. The books are not to be confused with the hobbyist books available in the High Street or available on-line.

I am a Lifetime member of the MPA. I am CRB registered with the police.  I am a past founder member  and Chairman of the PPLA (Professional Photographic Laboratory Association) and have a Fellowship(hon).
Also I am a past president of APL (Association of Photographic Laboratories) and I was owner and publisher of several trade magazines including Panorama, Focus and Dealerama and \photo and Electronic Marketing. I have a history and a permanent address so you can track me. I am accountable. I am dependable. I am experienced. I have many, many testimonials and am more than happy for past Brides to tell you what I did for them.

I have over £50,000 worth of top-end equipment at your disposal. My price structure is "feet-on-the-ground" sensible and realistic. Once booked your quoted price is GUARANTEED.

"Hello Bill, We would like to thank you for the fantastic service that we have received from you.
We were very happy and felt comfortable from when you first delivered your presentation at our home with your direct but personable style. You explained everything that we needed explaining and we were very impressed with the packages that you offered us and your previous work that you showed us.

On our big day we could not have asked for any more regarding the photos that were taken. We felt that you appreciated our requests for the style of shots that we wanted and we were over the moon that you led proceedings and we have benefitted from your experience and expertise in the way that guests were shepherded into position for the photos in an efficient but not too forceful manner. We really appreciated that with the light rain that we had that day and the end result was that we ended up with many more outdoor photos despite the weather.

We always at every stage of the whole process had timely responses to our enquiries and we were always crystal clear on what the next stage required."
