2up Photography is part of our umbrella business 2up Ltd which we set up back in 2003. 2up Ltd provides a range of marketing services from web and graphic design through to event organising.
In the very early days of our business we very soon came to realise that good, affordable photography was a core requisite for many of our clients and projects and so 2up Photography was born. Since then both parts of our business have gone from strength to strength. Our images feature on websites, brochures and promotional material that we produce in house for our clients while our wedding and portrait photography has taken off in its own right.
Over the years we have developed our skills working both solo and as a team. At most weddings you’ll find us shooting together (Debbie tends to be the organiser while Geoff slips into the background to get more candid shots.) We also work as part of a family team at the Royal Norfolk Show (we’re the official photographers) with Debbie’s Dad Roger – a well known Norfolk sports and action photographer.
We both also have our own individual styles and strengths. Debbie loves to shoot portraits and weddings – her signature style is relaxed, fun and informal – as well as undertake documentary and case study assignments for many of 2up’s business clients. Over the years she has also acquired an excellent working knowledge of Photoshop and is constantly experimenting with new ideas and techniques.
Geoff will tell you that he started out shooting as when it was much more difficult – with film and a traditional 35m camera (an Olympus OM 1 to be precise). Today Geoff shoots mostly digital and often brings a more abstract approach to assignments. He also specialises in sports photography and travels to France every year to photograph the Etape for Sports Tours International.
