Our Story

How Blitz was born…

Steve and George Reid

We are Steve and George Reid and we have been running Blitz Photography since 2012

When our children were young we wanted to find a way to do a job we loved and spend as much time with the kids as possible. That’s how Blitz was born.

George runs the business side of things while Steve takes care of all the photography.

We enjoy having visitors in our studio and we’ve tried to make everyone's experience what we would want if we took our children to a photoshoot.

Each year we’ve tried to improve what we do for our clients. Always looking for new products, new ways of doing things and making changes to the studio itself.

Every family has a story and we believe it’s our job to help people who visit Blitz tell theirs.

About Steve's Photography

Steve worked as a newspaper photographer from 1988 until 2012. He’s photographed thousands of people including many famous personalities. The queen, four presidents of the USA and seven British prime ministers are among the celebrities he has seen through his lens. He’s been to a war zone, three space shuttle launches and two FA Cup Finals with Pompey.

Blitz photography opened in 2012 when he decided it was time for a change. Since then he has qualified as a portrait associate with both the Master Photographers Association and the Society of Portrait and Wedding Photographers. He has won numerous awards and prestigious international honours including:

  • MPA South of England Portrait Photographer of the Year 2022
  • MPA South of England Under 5's Photographer of the Year 2021
  • MPA International Observed Wedding Photographer of the Year 2020
  • MPA South of England Commercial Photographer of the Year 2020
  • Runner-Up SWPP International Wedding Day Photographer of the Year 2020
  • UKPP National Pet Portrait Winner 2019
  • MPA International Lifestyle and Location Photographer of the Year 2016/17
  • MPA South Central Region Photographer of the Year 2017

Pictures make great memories and memories make great pictures, so our goal at Blitz is to keep all our story tellers returning year on year by offering fun, laughter and a great time in the studio!

We very much look forward to helping you tell your story.
