I booked a vintage shoot and afternoon tea as a treat for my Mum & I. We had an absolutely fantastic time during the shoot. Steve made us feel so welcomed and comfortable during our time at the Studio. My Mum is not normally one to pose in pictures and is quite shy, however Steve made her feel so relaxed and she really enjoyed herself! Leading to some awesome pictures of the both of us! If you're looking for great customer experience, you'll find it here. We both left on such a high because we had such a great time and Steve made that happen. I would definitely recommend Steve and I have already told my friends & family about Foto-smith.
OMG! I just knew the pictures would be good, but they are simply fantastic. Your work is outstanding. Thank you so much.

After 20 years out of the modelling game, I didn't think I would be able to do it again and thought I was probably too old! My first shoot was with Steve and thankfully, he has made me want to carry on and go for it and reassured me that I was not only capable of modelling now but I'm certainly good for another few years yet!! I immediately felt comfortable and relaxed and within the first five minutes of shooting, we were well on a roll! Steve is an enthusiastic, friendly and extremely professional photographer and I would recommend him to anyone who wants some amazing pics!
A great professional photographer, of course I would recommend him. He gives direction very well, I felt very comfortable and relaxed in his presence. The studio is absolutely amazing it's wonderful, so full of props and costumes/outfits and it's just spot on.
Steve was brilliant throughout the shoot and the studio is amazing. The shoot was great fun and made all my pin up dreams come true! There were Marilyn Monroe moments with wind and lots and lots of classic pouts and spenders. He gave great direction and made sure we got the best shots. I would recommend him to anyone wanting to try a Vintage Inspired shoot Steve was fun, friendly and professional. Shoot with Steve whilst you can ladies! Fully recommend him and would shoot with him again in a heart beat.
I had an amazing shoot with Steve, he is so professional and a real gentleman, but also kind and puts you at ease. He is a very talented photographer and a pleasure to work with in a comfortable atmosphere. The studio is absolute perfection and simply stunning set up!, i enjoyed the shoot so much and Steve gave great tips and advice as well as compliments and has great knowledge to get that perfect shot. I have had a sneak peek at some of the images and they are simply breath taking and beautiful. We are already in talks of working together again in the very near future. I would recommend Steve to any and all models, his work is a definite for your portfolios!
Steve was extremely friendly, easy going, and overall, lovely company to have! The studio itself is clean, warm, and a comfortable environment to be in. The boudoir setting is breathtaking. The furniture, colour schemes, props, clothing- everything is amazing! Picture your ideal boudoir set... that is it. We sat and discussed potential ideas and props, and then put it all into action with a playlist of 50's hits as our soundtrack (what more could you ask for?!) The time completely flew by. A few outfit changes later and it was already the end of our time slot...
I have shot with Steve several times now and would highly recommend him. The studio is fantastic, and Steve is a great photographer - knows how to get the best out of you, can give direction or let you get on with it and the results are always brilliant. You will also be kept supplied with tea! Always happy to work with Steve.
Just had a great shot with Steve, he could not have been more friendly or welcoming. Steve's friendly approach helps you relax and he gives great direction. The studio is stunning and so well equipped! Thoroughly recommended, really enjoyed my shoot and cannot wait to see the results.
Wow! What an amazing shoot today with the lovely Steve at Foto-Retro studios from start to finish! Steve welcomed me and my friend Hannah into his studio with offerings of drinks. I instantly felt at ease and like I had known him for months. Very chatty and knows how to laugh and get you laughing whilst directing,snapping away and getting some great shots as well as being completely professional. Steve did anything and everything to get the best poses out of you as well as letting you know when you naturally had a good pose Loved every minute! Would highly recommend and hopefully I get the honour of shooting with you again soon can't wait to see all the pictures.
Had an amazing pinup shoot with Steve yesterday, one of my most enjoyable shoots of all time, and one of the nicest (if not, THE nicest) studios I have ever used Steve kindly kept me going with coffee and made sure I was warm enough! He knew what he was doing and was clear when shooting, especially useful because of our limited time, and also had good ideas and suggestions for the different sets. I thoroughly enjoyed the shoot and really hope to shoot again soon, would 100% recommend Steve.
I had a great time shooting with Steve today. He was extremely professional and very friendly. Made me feel very welcome and relaxed as soon as I got there, Offering drinks throughout and making sure me and my friend where ok. He got me doing different poses and shot from different angles. He told me where to look and what to do with my body to get the best possible shoots. His studio and especially boudoir room was absolutely gorgeous. I loved having my photos taken in there. it had a lovely little dressing room so you could go somewhere private to get ready and get changed into the different outfits that you have chosen to shoot in. I definitely hope to go there again.
Had my first shoot with Steve last week oh my what a fab shoot if we had to rate the studio definitely 10 stars felt really relaxed and enjoyed every Moment Steve was so welcoming helped me in with me cases and bags Made us coffee as soon as we got there, if you get a chance to work with him snatch it with both hands I sure will if he asked.
Well where do I start, had an amazing shoot today. Really loved it and i can't wait to see some of the shots. Steve was really welcoming when I got there, he made me feel really relaxed. Such a fun guy to work with. I would highly recommend him for shoots and also the studio is perfect.
Had my shoot with Steve today and it was amazing! It was so much fun! He made me feel very welcome and very comfortable. The studio itself was lovely and very professional. I can't wait to see the final photos! I've had a lovely afternoon shooting with Steve and would highly recommend him.
Steve is an absolute diamond!! A wonderful experience and the images are superb. Fantastic studio to work in and i wanted to stay much longer but Im definitely on my way back for more very soon. Steve...Thank You. I cannot recommend this studio and photographer highly enough.
Had a lovely shoot with Foto Retro . A gentleman and a pleasure to work withThis photographer definitely loves what he is doing and it shows Steve was brilliant he also kept me going with 2 large cups of tea (as I'd travelled in the snow)and I defiantly plan to come back for a 2nd shoot 100% recommended.
After having to cancel a previous shoot due to injury i was the first to shoot for real in Steve's new studio when we re-arranged! Steve is a great guy to work with. Puts you at ease immediately, brings out your character in the images, gives good direction as well as letting me pose myself and has some great ideas to create something 'different'. The studio is also lovely - really well equipped and spacious changing room, clean and bright, cups of tea etc... Highly recommended, I hope to work with Steve again soon...book him before he gets too busy to fit you in.
Well what can i say i had a shoot with Steve yesterday with a Top Model Fashion Designer and two other beautiful models and I don't think we could have chosen anyone better I've worked with Steve before and he is so versatile, professhionel , very talented and an all round good guy.Very accommodating made endless hot drinks and i enjoyed every minute of it would HIGHLY recommend him to any models you won't be dissapointed.
