About Your Photographer
Russ is an exhibited, awarded and published photographer who loves quirky portraiture with bespoke touches. In the last 3 months of 2017 (at the time of writing this originally) alone Russ had pieces in exhibitions in both Thessaloniki, Greece and Madrid, Spain while also having a couple of pages residing in Photoplus, the off the shelf Canon only magazine. Russ can also often found on the competition circuit (for fun mostly) and regularly working with experienced models too, so alongside a multitude of experience of shooting a cross section of people, he's also picked up numerous ranked and commended images, and the odd passing comment from celebrity photographer Rankin too!
So why this and why now?
After moving up to North Wales and building a bespoke studio space solely for photography, Russ wanted to create a space that not only reflects his personality but is equally fiercely practical. His photography interests are so vast and quirky that it's hard for people to pin them down and see what can be offered. As Gordon Ramsay may advise a struggling restaurant not to have too big of a menu, my aim with Splash Point Photo is to incorporate a handful of amazing portrait genres that can be seen throughout the portfolio on here, and show you exactly what can be achieved shooting with him in his space.
Splash Point Photo also offers studio day's with wildly experienced touring models, and we're also willing to hire out our amazing location. We like to think of ourselves as more of a premium destination than an everyday photo studio, especially given our quirks and incredible amenities.
About The Location
We can be found less than a mile up the road from Rhyl town (and 15-20mins from the station walking), and the main seaside prom destination. We're quite literally just over the road from one of North Wales's best sandy beaches. Coining the name Splash Point Photo due to our heated swimming pool, it's actually also the name of the area which inhabits the top end of said beach because of how the water hits the rocks during high tide.
Splash Point Photo's location offers
-A fully equipped photography studio for editorial standard portraits and a general creative working space.
-A good sized private and heated pool.
-A beautiful neutral boudoir bedroom space with both natural light and/or flash, time and weather depending, and on your style and vibe.
-MISC Set Ideas - also at the location we have a few other areas of interest that can be exploited for great images such as a balcony, small brick courtyard and a beautiful grand hallway.
-A Spare Room We often put models up during their studio days so they're fresh in the morning, or if they're touring, they don't have to take on any extra cost for the night.
We highly recommend checking out the below video for as better look at our amenities, and of course the portfolio galleries
And if that wasn't amazing enough, we could maybe consider some images at nearby locations.. or you could just go for a look around while in town!
If you don't fancy walking the Rhyl beach front and playing the arcade and seaside attractions, then not far from our location is the famous Talacre lighthouse which also has some pretty cool sledgable dunes! Just over in the small attractive town of Abergele is the Gwrych Castle ruins, and then there is the Bodelwyddan Castle and Park, Conwy Castle, Colwyn Bay, Llandudno, and much more. If you really get stuck, how about hopping over the boarder in to Chester? Or if you're the action type and need your gym fix or fancy a fitness shoot, well my sister has Beach Body (fitness) studios over in Denbigh in a listed church hall! There's plenty we could potentially do or that you could check out after visiting Splash Point Photo!
