Salisbury Songstress Lizz Badcock - aka Miss Lilli B

Funk Soul Sista - Girl BandAs you may have seen on our Facebook or Twitter pages yesterday and this morning, this very lucky Salisbury photographer had the lovely Miss Lilli B in the studio yesterday.

Lilli is a Salisbury singer/singing teacher. She is currently upgrading her website and needed to get some new photos done. Her current website is here.

You may recognise Lilli from a shoot we did some time ago with the amazing trio Funk Soul Sista. Lilli is on the left in the picture along with Emm (centre) and Becks (right).

As with all of our clients we offer a consultation to enable us to see the finished images through their eyes, and are using Pinterest more and more to enable our clients to receive the personal, bespoke service we are renowned for. Lilli found being able to show us her vision very helpful, not only to allow us to see what she was trying to visualise but to also focus her own thoughts.

So to the shoot.

We had a 2 hour session booked to allow for style changes, etc. We had our style agreed, and we had had a look at the layout for Lilli's new website. All that was left was to set the lighting for the first set and for Lilli to change into her first outfit.

Here are a selection from the shoot. If you would like to see, and hear, the amazing Miss Lilli B, and a few other amazing local talents, including Funk Soul Sista, Kev B, Duncan Heather, and BGT 2013 finalists Kieran and Sarah, she is performing at Stars in the Canyon on Friday 14th November at the Chapel Nightclub. Tickets are available at Eventbrite and are on sale now at a discounted rate for a limited time, so book now to get the best seats at the best prices!

Fun Family Studio Portraits

Wow what a wet and very windy winter we are having, but we hope you are all safe and not suffered too badly.

Luckily the weather has not dampened the spirits of our many clients, that we have photographed since opening our new purpose built studio at Old Sarum, Salisbury. We have laughed and cried and sometimes both together, all thanks to the fun and mischievousness of the  pets, children, parents and grandparents that we have had the great pleasure of meeting and photographing.

Here are just a few of our favorite shots for you to see, from some of our favorite portrait shoots. (Due to client confidentiality we are unable to show you some of the shoots) but we're sure you will agree the ones we can show really are fab.

You can book your studio session by calling 01722 320500 or emailing Mandy on More details can be found on our website at

We are just about to launch our amazing Mother's Day promotion via our Facebook page.

Taylor Family Portrait Shoot

Recent visitors to the John Rose Photography studio were the "Taylor Family" for their fun family portrait shoot. What a great time we all had with lots of laughter and giggling not just from the children but dad too. The nerves went very quickly once John started making them laugh which made posing very easy and the time just raced by.

A week or so after the portrait shoot, we invited the family back to view their images to be told "all of the images were wonderful, making it very difficult to choose which of them to choose and where they would be put"
