About Sarah

Welcome along to my website and studio…

Based in the heart of Newcastle, myself Sarah Deane, owns and runs the successful Sarah Deane Photographic Studio capturing professional portraits, product photography and location based commercial and portrait photography for websites and editorial.

With over 16 years as a Professional Award winning Photographer and 8 years of this running my own photography studio business, I’m highly skilled at capturing you or your company in a relaxed documentary style. I am mostly based in the North East of England and Southern Scotland although travel to London regularly and anywhere else who shouts for my help. I love creating bespoke photography to your brief listening carefully and delivering great results with professionalism and of course a smile!

My passion for photography began at school in the late 1980€™s when an art teacher offered the use of a converted stock cupboard for a dark room. There I spent hours discovering the magic of film and print. This seems funny to say in a digital era however I am so pleased that I leant the skill the basic way hands on way with smelly chemicals and twiddly enlargers and added the digital skills later.

After gaining an Art Foundation at Newcastle College I went on to study Graphic Design at The London Institute Camberwell College in the late 1990’s. Here I obtained a degree specialising in photographic illustration guided by a tutor, Pixies album photographer Simon Larbelestier. After several successful years of freelance projects commissioned by companies such as Connex South East, coverage in the local press and exhibitions at Brixton Art Gallery I relocated to my native North East to join the well known high-street brand, Venture Portrait studios in 2002. Here I gained several awards for my portrait photographs, retouching design and studio skills.

After several years at Venture Portraits, I set up my own photo studio in Newcastle’s city centre in 2011. Here I produce portrait photography in a relaxed style both for local families and ‘meet the team’  corporate staff headshots. I offer a wide range of corporate photography services from food and drink images to sporting some high vis, hard hat and boots and shooting industrial factory shots from a cherry picker! I’ll always listen to what you are wanting as an end result, whether it is taming the wildest children or listing to a detailed brief and branding. I also have extensive retouching and design skills and so deliver a finely tuned end result.

And in exciting new news I have an assistant Emma who works with me supporting the studio and helping me with my client’s edit and retouch work. She is a graduate from Leeds’ Art University and has a matching sharp eye to mine! She is smiley and smart and really creative. A real asset to have here at the studio. Her photo is below and an introduction coming on my blog this week. Say hi!
