Hi, I’m Chris Coupland, and I’m the owner and photographer behind Memories Photography Selby:
an award-winning, professional, photography business.
I have 15 years’ experience as a professional photographer.
I provide affordable, high-quality photography for a wide range of events, including weddings, special occasions, and studio portraits.
Not everyone feels comfortable in front of the camera. However, my friendly and personable approach puts my clients at ease. I pride myself on making even the most camera-shy people feel relaxed in front of the lens, resulting in the highest-quality final images.
What’s my background?
I’ve been a professional photographer for over 15 years. My passion for photography began at school, though my career path lead me towards the teaching profession. I taught maths, ICT and, of course, photography.
However, in early 2015, after 15 years spent working as a professional photographer part-time, I threw open the doors to my 40sqm Selby studio to beginning working as a photographer full-time.
I still teach photography when I can, but dedicating my time to professional photography has allowed me to widen the range of services I can offer to my clients.
I’m proud to say I’ve won a number of prestigious competitions and awards, and I’m affiliated to the YPU (Yorkshire Photographic Union). I’m also enhanced CRB checked and insured, and qualified to work with people with disabilities or special needs. Of course, I’m also a qualified photography tutor.
What type of photography do I do?
Over the years, Memories Photography Selby has provided a wide range of photography.
Most recently, I’m the proud host of the 'Selby Times' ‘Little Stars’ photography competition.
I’ve also worked alongside TV crews on locations.
What if I want to learn to take better pictures?
As a qualified tutor and professional photographer I am delighted to pass on my knowledge to others. I run training courses at various levels from my studio.
See the photography courses page for details.
Where do I work?
I carry out most of my wedding and special occasion photography within twenty miles of my Selby studio. However, I’ll happily cover areas within a one-hour radius of Selby. This includes Hull, Scarborough, York, Harrogate, Knaresborough, Leeds, Tadcaster, Sherburn-in-Elmet, Wakefield, Barnsley, Sheffield, Rotherham, Doncaster, Goole, and everywhere in between. I’ve also covered weddings in Lancashire, so just let me know where you’re based and we can have a chat.
Of course I also work in my own Selby based studio which was opened in spring 2015.
What will you get when you choose me as your photographer?
You’ll receive all of your images fully processed, and presented to you on a copyright-free on a high quality USB in a presentation box for weddings, or on a CD or DVD for other services. You’ll be able to upload to them to your computer, view them on your TV, or share with your family and friends via email or Facebook.
You’ll also receive your own sharable online image gallery. You’ll be able to view the images from your phone, as well as order the prints directly online from one of the countries leading photo laboratories.
What do I charge?
Just because it’s your wedding, or a special occasion, it doesn’t give a photographer the right to double their rate. At Memories Photography Selby, I offer competitive prices - but I never compromise on quality. I work from my own home studio, meaning my overheads are minimal. I pass all my savings onto my valued customers, so my photography rates stay low while the quality remains high.
I offer a fantastic service and an excellent finished product, which results in happy customers. Many return to hire me as their photographer again and again, and I’m delighted to receive great referrals. In fact, Memories Photography Selby has grown primarily from word of mouth. I’m incredibly grateful to my wonderful customers who personally recommend me to their family and friends, allowing my business to go from strength to strength.
