Young Entrepreneurial Photographer Captures Life During Lockdown

Daventry News -

A Daventry photographer has come up with a new innovative way to stay in business through his ‘Simplify Your Life’ photography offer.  

Tom Stilgoe, 33, from Daventry town owns and manages Tom Stilgoe Photography, a creative and bespoke photography business that captures everything from puppy photoshoots and weddings, to corporate headshots and family portraits. To overcome the halt in business due to lockdown, Tom has launched his inventive new photography offer, Simplify Your Life – portraits of families taken on the doorstep of their own homes. 

Tom said about the concept, “The idea came to me when I was asked to take some photos for a friend’s engagement during lockdown. They wanted to capture the moment but without breaking social distancing, so I had the idea that we could take photos on their front door; they don’t have to leave their house, so to speak, and I can stand at least two meters away to take the shot.”

“Since I launched ‘Simplify Your Life’ a few weeks ago, I have been inundated with requests for front door family portraits, people have even been including their pets which has been great to see. Lockdown has been incredibly hard for some people, but it has also created some very rewarding moments; the opportunity to spend this much quality time with your family and loved ones may never present itself again when lockdown is lifted, and front door portraits perfectly encapsulates  this feeling. My aim is to capture the moment with your family, so whether you want to dress up, dress down, use props or simply be you, these photos will be a reminder of this time.” 

Scott Fowler, one of Tom’s clients for the Simplify Your Life concept said, “Tom’s idea is fantastic. We would never have been able to afford a professional photoshoot of our family and this way our home gets to feature in the pictures too, which wouldn’t have happened if we had just gone along to a studio. Tom is professional, friendly and affordable – we couldn’t recommend highly enough.”  

Tom can offer this service to anyone living in the Daventry town area as he cycles to all of his bookings. All health and safety measures are put in place prior to arriving as the wellbeing of clients is his utmost priority.
