About Us and What We Do For You

Zzzone is a cosy high street contemporary photography studio in the Gloucester Road area of Bristol.

Here at Zzzone we guarantee you will enjoy our fantastic portrait experience, and it’s suitable for any occasion. Whether you are celebrating a special event or just want a record of your family, you’ll find that a professionally taken studio portrait photograph will be a picture to treasure as your family grows and moves on.

We have three photographers who all take every effort to put you at your ease to make sure you enjoy the shoot and achieve the best results. The photographer will take around 100 photos, sometimes a few more, but really there is no limit during your time with us, so don’t be put off asking if you have any special images or ideas you would like us to try – we really love you to have your input!

Each shoot lasts for up to an hour – we want you to be as comfy and relaxed as you can be so you can enjoy the experience, having fun is definitely one of the most important elements to your shoot. Vickie is the Studio Manager here at Zzzone and she will be pleased to discuss any special requirements you may have and generally look after you.

Initially, we start by asking you, what you would like from the photo session. We photograph in colour and black and white and indeed many styles in between such as duotone and sepia. There is no rush at all, which is particularly important for children, who can feel intimidated in our large studio with large lights and technical equipment dotted around the place.

There is plenty of room for up to 20 people (if you’d like to bring that many!) Or if you would like to bring props, guitars, footballs, scooters or indeed any favourite toy, that’s fine! Our approach is very informal and often it becomes organised chaos in the studio where each of our photographers work really hard to capture something different and reflect the best of you and your family. If you have any questions please don’t be too shy to ask – we’ve probably been asked it before! Zzzone has two changing rooms, level access right through to the studio and disabled access and WC.

After your photography portrait studio session you will be invited back for a bespoke viewing of your amazing images on our 60” screen. We have a fantastic range of products to display your wonderful images – from canvas wraps to contemporary wood block frames, high gloss acrylic and beautiful traditional framing. Take a look at the products available at Zzzone, ready to show your lovely images on the wall, and don’t forget to look at our family gallery for ideas and inspiration!

The Editing Process

Editing plays an enormous part of the experience at Zzzone. Your images look great out of the camera but we then spend at least 2 hours on your shoot to take it to the next level. This can include full skin retouch, lighting tweaks, colour filter effects and graphics. See below for a before and after on one of our recent images with powder paint!
