Portland Studios is an award-winning family high-street photo studio based in Sandgate, in Folkestone
We are a well-established photo studio and have been trading in Folkestone, Kent for over 30 years and are members of the SWPP (Society for Wedding and Portrait Photographers).
We use the highest quality photography equipment and props. We want to make sure your visit here, and resulting images are a piece of art that you will be proud to showcase in your home for many years to come. We work with some of the best print services around the UK, ensuring top quality products throughout our range. This is backed up by our lifetime guarantee against defects on all of our products.
Portland Studios is a newly decorated, comfortable, friendly and a relaxing photo studio to visit.
We work closely with award winning Karly Shead Hair and Make-up (attached to our studios next door) which is a fabulous shabby chic boutique with crystal chandeliers, attached to our studio offering makeovers for our professional Boudoir and Fashion shoots with free Wi-Fi to customers.
We are famous (locally at least) for our Barista style fresh latte coffees and fair trade hot chocolate!! We are well worth a visit, even just to pop in for a look around and pick up a price list.
We aim to always a warm friendly welcome. Credit cards accepted and easy payment plans are available on request.
I started Portland Studios 30 years ago as a creative family portrait & wedding film photography service offering great images and customer service at affordable prices. We originally operated as a mobile portrait photography service offering family portraits in hotels across the South East with the £9.95 family portrait promotion which we still offer today!
Over the years we have become Kent’s leading High Street portrait studio and have followed innovation and adapted to meet new demands and trends.
My studio was the first in Kent to go digital back in 2001 which allowed us to be more creative and experimental.
Traditional wedding albums have made way for the reportage designer storybook albums which are still very popular. In the studio we offer fun lifestyle portraits, together with Boudoir/Doudoir and Teen Party shoots/Smash the cake and Themed portraits as well as Watch Me Grow baby programme.
