Photography For Life (formerly Stancliffe Studios) is a photography business born from the passion of Karl Stancliffe and his love of photography.
My career began in IT, managing people, projects, tech and money! However, I soon realised my true calling when I picked up my dad’s SLR camera and began clicking away; working my way through ten rolls of film before I’d even considered the development costs, thankfully, no longer a problem anymore due to the digital age.
My passion for photography grew, to the point where one day, I realised my IT job was no longer for me so I set up Photography For Life. This is a small company, which has been run by myself for over six years and supported by a fantastic, creative and dynamic team of photographers.
I take great pride in staying with my family value principles in the service I offer, which is why I choose my photographers for their amazing ability to communicate with people.
Sue and Karl were so amazing they weren't just photographers, they were friends. We couldn't have asked anything more from them, they made us laugh, relax and they made the day even more special for just being there. Apart from everything else they took the most fantastic photos that really captured the day so perfectly, they gave us a story and a all of the photos reminded us of the amazing day we had. All of the family when seeing the photos cried (my mum the most) i think that says it all. Amazing photographers and now friends.
It's difficult to put into words how amazing Karl and Sue were on our wedding day. Thank you for making us feel so special and comfortable! You are true professionals who clearly love your jobs and we have gained two more friends. Sooo incredibly happy with our photos and cannot recommend you more highly! Thank you for making our day so special, Mr and Mrs Smith xxx
