Fossca is a Hull, East Yorkshire based photography studio founded in 2009 when Tom realised his office job wasn't ideal. Photography was already a big part of his life and he spent time capturing weddings and events for friends and family.
That year, the handful of photos from family weddings were taken to 18 wedding fayres and along with some apparently convincing sales patter, total strangers let Fossca photograph their weddings! Ant joined Tom at every wedding to ensure the days ran smoothly. Fossca was at almost the same amount of wedding fayres the second year, but with a bigger portfolio to show. Eventually, there were enough weddings to make up for Tom leaving a steady job.
The next few years were busy, and Fossca started attracting bigger weddings – accidentally specialising in barn, marquee, and tipi weddings. Ideal really, as documentary details make up Fossca's signature style. Having guests surrounded by beautiful backdrops, and enjoying sometimes untraditional entertainment lends itself well to a Fossca album, unlike traditional posed photos!
Somewhere along this journey, Tom was driving past an empty building most days and thinking how perfect the size and location would be for a studio. Eventually, curiosity got the better of him and a viewing was booked. This was at a time when it was manically busy keeping on top of shooting and editing, but it was too good an opportunity to miss. Fast forward a bit and this neglected tin shell of a building has now been transformed into a warm welcoming studio and event space – but oh my did it take some doing, as the blog shows.
The studio is familiar to our wedding clients from over the years and is now used to provide studio photography for both families and businesses. It's the first impression of every client meeting and shows we're more than just photographers, our attention to detail is what sets us apart from the crowd - plus we serve great coffee!
Over the years as the company has grown, our goal of providing quality photography paired with friendly and hassle-free service has grown even more important. Now more than ever we focus on changing even the smallest detail if it will improve our client's experience with us.Read More
Taking photos and messing with computers has been part of my life from a young age, which combined with my education in software makes running a high tech photography business kind of my ideal job.
Currently, my role is to make sure each of our clients enjoys a relaxed and smooth experience of photography before, during, and after a shoot. I also keep all the technology and backups working behind the scenes which nobody appreciates, unless it breaks. Sad face.
People feature in most of my photography, as they make every shoot completely different which I like - too much of the same thing and I'd get bored. Weddings, family portraits, small businesses, each require a different set of skills, but all require putting people at ease - otherwise the photos look a bit ridiculous!
I’ve always had a keen eye for photography, and after starting a Photography A-Level but finding I was teaching my Teachers, I decided to pursue it on my own. My friends tell me I’m hyper-observant and have a dreadful obsession for detail, but it turns out these are perfect for this line of work.
My role at weddings is quite different to Tom’s; I usually have a massive lens on and snipe people from afar so they don't even know it’s happened until it's in the album. Weddings are great because no two are ever the same plus who wouldn't want to talk to the drunk uncle when they’re stone cold sober.
Studio work is a fantastic contrast thanks to the underfloor heating and unlimited coffee, plus I get to put all my perfectionism to use without being ridiculed by friends.
I have been into photography ever since I could pick up a camera, and over the years it has become a huge part of my life.
My entry into the world of photography was capturing the nightlife in clubs. Since finishing my degree in photography, I have traded the madness of nightclubs for the slightly more relaxing setting of family portraits and post-production at Fossca.
The most important part of my portrait sessions is the relaxed atmosphere, including plenty of good coffee of course! It's all about capturing those special moments and having fun whilst we do it.
Post-production is where I bring your photos to life and attention to detail is my forte.
