A new professional photography service has opened in Hampshire offering special services to help small business expand and families to enjoy their treasured memories. Segami Images opened on the 12th of August on the Catherington Business Park in Catherington, Hampshire.
Four friends who are passionate about photography were talking about their hopes for the future. Anita Simmons has been involved in photography since childhood and has developed her expertise as an ardent amateur over the past 20 years. She and her husband John were with their schooldays friend Angela Musson and her partner Sean Smith when she said how she would like to open her own studio.
Angela and Sean have always been interested in photography and how it promotes business and records family events. The ideas combined and Segami Images is the result.
“Memories are important and precious” says Anita, Segami’s Director and Chief Photographer “How you remember special occasions depends on how you record them. Look back at good photographs of your children and their smiles are a ray of sunshine” she said.
Angela, the MD of a successful company in York says “Images are a critical part of how a company speaks to its customers. The right setting, a perceptive imagination and careful presentation will transform a product.”
Segami’s experience includes commercial as well as family photography. The work can be done in the Segami studio or on location at events, in factories or businesses. “I really enjoy the creative process that visualises more in a product than merely nuts and bolts” says Anita.
Sean and Angela once had a business in the south and wanted to stay connected and give something back. “New businesses need the affordable services that Anita wants to offer” says Sean “We have been very excited to help.”
Images are important for any business to effectively reach its customers. “I want to offer an economical service to small businesses that haven’t got a huge amount of money but still need good images.” Anita explained.
The new studio will provide affordable photographs for families who want to freeze moments in time and display beautiful images in their homes. Virtually all family events will be covered and the family can order their prints in variety of formats from paper to canvas. Memorabilia and gift ranges can be produced including mugs and mats, and coasters and calendars, and in addition to the prints Segami can arrange laser etching to signify special messages and awards.
“I do love producing beautiful slide show of photographs set to music; using customers own photograph or photographs that I have taken.” Said Anita
