Derbyshire’s award winning photographic portrait studio.
Photographer of the Year finalists, 2014, 2016 & 2018
Firefly Photography began life in 2007 on Friar Gate in Derby city centre. Since then it has grown into the region’s leading independent photographic portrait studios, focussing on studio based portraits including Newborn; Family; Makeover and Boudoir to name a few (a full list of our experiences can be found here!).
In 2015 Firefly Photography was able to open its first satellite studio based at Curborough Countryside Centre in Lichfield. Based just a 30 minute drive away down the A38, south of Derby and Burton-Upon-Trent, the Firefly team have been able to offer more portrait sessions across the Midlands as well as alleviate the waiting list Derby was beginning to get!
James and the team, at Firefly, are proud to be welcoming families back from the last decade, as well as new clients travelling to us from as far as Chesterfield, Nottingham, Birmingham and Stafford, to play in the award winning studios and create beautiful imagery which become cherished memories over many years to come.
Derby’s studio enjoyed a £50,000 refit in 2016 allowing for disabled friendly access. Our modelling suite, studio, two viewing rooms and toilet area is all on one level with baby changing area and kitchen area. With a range of sets and backdrops, including our iconic coloured backdrops, the team at Firefly are able to offer a variety of photographic styles and genres making sure you’re able to create stunning studio photography.
Lichfield’s studio is based at Curborough Countryside Centre and was opened in the autumn of 2015. Based on the first floor of a converted barn this cosy space houses a reception area, modelling suite, studio, viewing room, toilet area and kitchen. Following the refurbishment of the Derby studio this studio also houses a variety of sets, props and coloured backdrops allowing for high quality photography to be created within this unique space.
