an example of the images created by Simon Phelan

Hello and welcome to Image Chameleon, we are a group of four photographers covering weddings, event, corporate and family photography.

Based in Hampshire three men and one lady with well over 120 years of experience between us.

Please contact us to arrange a meeting and have a chat to see how we can best supply your photography and printing needs.

Type business: Full Time Professional Photographer

My photographic style: A mix of traditional and candid.

My greatest strengths: Listening and asking questions then coming up with ideas.

I have been in photography: I have had a camera in my hands since 8 years of age.

I turned semi pro age 24 and full time when 30, I am now 54.

How I got started in photography...: Many times as have others I was asked to photograph a wedding for friends. After several and although not asking I was given money as a thank you I decided to sell my then camera and buy a new one. Whilst at a car boot selling things and among them my camera. I had on display in front of the camera some of the pictures I had taken with said camera. No one bought the camera but a few did ask if the photos where for sale.

This made my mind up to turn full time pro.

My photographic skills: Seeing what can be best got from an apparently normal setting.

Using off camera flash to create something that wasn't there to begin with.

And putting people at ease.

My personality: Serious and fun but at the right time, chatty but also listen a lot.

Very easy going, I don't ever consider there isn't another alternative.

Geographic areas I cover: The UK.

Venues I frequently attend: Weddings, parties, corporate events

I found inspiration from: Quirky angles and good light.

Success in photography: I have worked for Fareham Borough Council and have had my work published several times in the Fareham Today magazine. I have been on the front cover and have had my photos used for many articles.

I have won the Gosport camera club digital image trophy.

Photographic training: I am completely self taught. I have read dozens of books on techniques and styles. I now have friends that come to myself for advice.

My interests outside photography: Reading, watching films, drawing and eating, yum yum.

Major events: Mortgage, Marriage, children, divorce and now looking forward to living with my fiancee next year.

Testimonials: "We have used Image Chameleon and feel their straightforward approach with a clear understanding of our requirements ensured a successful outcome."

Susan Jones, Fareham Hampshire.
Why I like the SWPP: Although I am self taught and feel I am a competent photographer I am looking to gain qualifications. These are what I will be looking forward to going through with the SWPP.

Tagline: (stolen from whom I do not know)

Photographers are violent people. First they frame you, then they shoot you, then they hang you on the wall.

Future plans: To gain some qualifications and improve my marketing skills.

And finnally: I would be delighted to hear from you and arrange a meeting to have a chat and come up with some different ideas for your photo needs.
Best regards,

Simon Phelan
