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 portraits, product photography and location based commercial and portrait photography.
I’m a highly skilled, award winning photographer based in the North East of England and create bespoke photography to your brief with professionalism and creativity.
My passion for photography began at school in the late 1980s 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.
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.
