Innovative In the Box Photography by Steve Lowrey

How & where to book an In The Box Session and more questions answered!

Many people have seen the In The Box style of pictures that are a popular way of capturing the soul of a family, children and even pets. However the places that offer this service are few and far between, the equipment is specialised and can be expensive. However at my Atherton Photography Studio, near Wigan, Bolton and Manchester, I can offer this unique style of photoshoot session to you at a reasonable price.

I have 2 different size boxes in use and can cater for most requests which includes adults too.

What is 'In the Box' Photography?

Firstly, it’s fun for all the family and an event within itself. Secondly, it’s a chance to own an impressive keepsake that you can display at work or home and receive all the complements from your family, friends and workmates.

As the name suggests, a few pictures are taken with the chosen subject in a purpose built box. Each picture can be different or similar and a story line can be built or a series of random fun shots. Outfits and props can be changed, interacted with or even crossed from one box to another.

Once the pictures are taken the magic happens in the editing suite and it can take up to 3 hours to produce your finished sparkling composite result.
