About Peter Bratley
I'm a Photographer based in Cumbria with over 35 years experience. I enjoy all forms of Photography, and hence I don't label myself a Landscape Photographer, Wedding Photographer, or Portrait Photographer which some Photographers choose to do, I am happy to shoot any genre required by my clients.
I am available for any special occasion. I do commissions, which are a popular choice for wedding presents. Studio portraits are another popular service I offer, these photos are often used as presents for parents and grandparents. I offer family photo shoots, either in a studio, at the clients home or at the clients favorite location in the Lake District. My Studio Portraits are popular with Students wishing to go to Drama and Stage School, they need Photos for their applications, and I can provide them locally, rather than them travelling to Manchester, Birmingham, or London.
I have taught a beginners group at my local Camera Club for 4 years, and am available to do the same for individuals or groups. I also work with local Scout groups helping their members use photography as their skill section towards their Duke of Edinburgh Awards.
I have had work published in Books, most recently for a publication about the 50 most beautiful Catholic Churches in England. I have also done work for an Exhibition at The National Museum of Glass in New York. I also take Sports Photos for 2 local papers and 1 Internet news site, I cover Swimming Galas for the County Swimming Association and a couple of local Swimming Clubs. I am also asked to cover Local Athletics events regularly.
