Welcome To Close Up Studio

Imagine having a cherished photograph of your Son; Daughter; Father; Grand-daughter; pet, or a stunning portrait of yourself. Now imagine it is taken by professional photographer John Morley (Dorset and Somerset's best kept secret). The final result would be a future filled with endless days of pride and pleasure for you, your friends and your family. The words below are taken from an interview with John and sums up his pure drive, determination and commitment to please each and every one of his customers.

"I first fell in love with photography when I was just 5 years old and started photographing weddings when I was 14. I established my business professionally in 1972 when I was 16 years old. I probably learned my trade the hard way, but wouldn't change a thing. I just love being a professional photographer and having the opportunity to record a fleeting moment in time that will last forever just for the benefit of my customers. To me this has to be the best job in the world".

Thank you John for the wonderful photographs that you took of me and my family. Mum and Dad were thrilled on their anniversary and you were so patient and understanding on the day.

Hi John, I just want to say thank you for the makeover shoot that you did for me just before Christmas. As you know I was so nervous when I first walked in, but I thoroughly enjoyed myself on the day. My husband was so pleased with the photographs, he said that it was his best present ever, and yes, I still managed to keep it a total surprise. Thank you so much for everything that you and your make up artist did to make it so special. Wendy

I was asked to take a tour of your new website by a friend who is interested in having a makeover. I am pleased to say that I am pleasantly surprised. It's 9 out of 10 so far.

Blooming Babies!

Nothing compares to a chuckling, giggling baby and the opportunity to capture these wonderful moments decreases as each day passes. Today is a great day to pick up the phone and talk to John, a very friendly and helpful photographer. Relax, John is a true professional and not a salesman. He will only be focused on how he can turn a magical moment into a perfect masterpiece for posterity. It will be left to you to decide if and when you want to grasp the opportunity.
