photographer-matthew-prestonWe’re delighted to announce the opening of the latest Barrett & Coe photography studio, owned and operated by Matthew Preston.

Matthew was previously a Logistics Manager for a global food manufacturer but realised his passion for photography and made the step to open his own business in Lichfield after completing our Fast Track photography training programme.

Matthew told us: “I’ve had a busy start to life as a studio owner and had a full diary to get going! I must say a huge thank you to those who have helped me get to this stage. I also appreciate how welcome I have been made to feel by all of my fellow Franchisees and look forward to more of your help over the weeks and months ahead!

Matthew’s family-friendly studio has been designed to provide a welcoming, relaxed feeling so clients can feel at ease whilst he captures their special memories. With his studio situated on the Elmhurst Business Park, it’s a short drive from Lichfield, Tamworth, Fradley and Burton and has free parking and baby changing facilities too.

After an ‘opening night’ at the studio he’s also began life as a photographer with great feedback from his customers including “We recently had a family photography session and Matthew was really friendly and put us at ease immediately. He was fantastic with our little girl and really brought her out of her shell. He also knew exactly how to get the best from our dog too! When our finished products arrived, we were so pleased and have had many compliments! We would definitely recommend him to other families.

He is keen to support local schools, charities and businesses who are looking for a new way to say ‘thank you’ to special clients.
