About us

I am Chris and I started my DE Photo journey back in 2007. After selling my successful coffee shop franchise, I had extensive experience in managing my own business, as well as employing more than 60 members of staff. Taking on the DE Photo franchise seemed the perfect opportunity to put my experience to good use and fell in love with the work and the reaction to the service.

After purchasing the Bournemouth and Poole franchise and experiencing an extremely successful first summer, I looked to expand into the Salisbury, Southampton and Andover areas to offer the popular service to other schools and clubs close by.

Before too long, I had experienced a wide variety of events and was receiving a vast number of enquiries. At this point, I decided to take on a new member of the team in order to keep up with the growth. Justin joined in 2010 after working with another franchisee close by. With his already established experience at DE Photo, we were able to expand the service with a second DE Photo van, allowing to take on even more events than before. 

But the growth didn’t stop there. The team became complete when Mark was promoted to manage the Southampton and New Forest Area in 2013. With three vans now running in the franchise, it had giving us more opportunities than ever.

As of today, I work with a fantastic team of experienced photographers that are both hard working and friendly individuals that contribute to the successes of my franchise. As a result of our dedication to providing outstanding costumer service and building lasting relationships with schools and clubs, we were award Franchise of the Year in 2010. Along with the growth and relationships that were built, the franchise received a host of other awards that helped us achieve record sales for the company in 2014. We work year on year to make our events and the service we provide the best it can possibly be.

We look after over 70 Schools supporting their sports days and a growing number using us for their school portrait photos now with continued success.

We are the "Go to" company in the area for covering the Local Football and Rugby Festivals but have some space left in the diary for School Sports Days and Portrait Days and also our pictures from Dance Schools are always so well Received.

Please don’t hesitate to get in touch via phone or email if you have an event you would like us to cover.
