Black Tie Portraits are Bristol based photographers, covering Bristol, the South West and beyond. Black Tie Portraits is run by Robert Coyne LSWPP, a born and bred Bristolian, who has a wealth of experience in professional photography, and who is a qualified member of the Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers.
Robert has over 30 years extensive experience in professional photography, including Events, Weddings, Graduations, Conference and Commercial Photography, Head shots and Creative Portraiture, to name but a few areas of the profession. From the moment he had his first camera, which was a gift from his grand parents, he became interested in photography, and it is his career, as well as his hobby. He started his photography career in the darkroom printing black & white prints for customers, and occasionally going out on location with commercial photographers. He then worked at a commercial studio in Bristol processing E6 films and helping out in the studio. After a break from photography he then worked in a portrait studio, and it has been his main source of income ever since. He also studied photography at night school achieving a City and Guilds Certificate. He was one of the first photographers in Bristol to offer on-site printing at events, so that guests take their prints home with them on the day of their events. He was also one of the first to use props at events in Bristol to bring some fun to his event photography and to help capture those spontaneous reactions. It brings the feel of a photo booth combined with the quality of a skilled photographer. It is now funny to see his local competitors and also a few past clients of his, copying his ideas. There is no substitute for an experienced professional photographer.
With a creative approach and eye for detail, Robert has gained an enviable reputation in the photography field. By using some of the latest digital equipment and techniques, he is able to offer his clients a skilled and personal service.
It is great to be recommended by previous clients to their work colleagues, friends and family, and we gain a lot of repeat business to satisfied and happy customers.
