Property Photography and Floor Plans
Much of my work in recent years is property photography. I work for various local estate agents in York, as well as owners of guest houses and b and bs. Professional property photography is so important to showcase each place at it’s best. Hopefully each property will be nice and tidy when I arrive (it’s not always, but usually!) It’s important to declutter as much as possible, and little things like putting away towels, toilet rolls, pet bowls and bins, really do help.
I use a wide angle lens, 10mm – 20mm and a monopod, which I love! I used to use a tripod, but the camera I currently use is brilliant with low light, so I don’t need to use a really slow stutter speed, hence a monopod is enough, and it allows me to get in to tight corners, as well as capture high up exterior shots.
In most property shoots, I also provide a fully measured and detailed floor plan. This is recent skill that I have taught myself, and something I really enjoy doing. The biggest floor plan I have ever done was a 20 bedroom hotel, showing all rooms, fixtures, fittings and communal areas – which was a challenge!
I love doing property photography and think it a really important thing for anyone selling, letting or advertising a property.

Nikki was fantastic! She worked with us from the very first informal meeting to discuss our budget and what we wanted to achieve. She gave us guidance and ideas about the best photographic places in our wedding venue and what options we had. Nikki was not only very professional but friendly too and had the perfect tone for gathering everyone together for the photographs so there was no waiting around. I have since recommended Nikki to a few brides to be with no hesitation.

Nikki was brilliant on our wedding day: Professional, but personal at the same time. She made everyone feel so comfortable and, consequently, captured some really beautiful moments. As a "stressed out" bride, I really cannot compliment Nikki enough... in both the run up to our wedding, and afterwards, her communication was excellent - so proactive. She was incredibly organised and efficient. It really made this part of organising the wedding effortless. We would highly recommend her.

I am so glad Nikki did our wedding photography, she went way beyond our expectations of our photograph's! We had a wonderful happy day with our family and friends, and she captured the atmosphere perfectly. She more than delivered the outline I had given her, and we have beautiful artistic memento's of our very special day. I love how she seized the moments of different parts of our day, both the formal and informal. We will treasure these photographs, and I could not recommend her highly enough! The trouble will be now just deciding what to leave out of the album!

The wonderful Nikki Bowling captured our day from bridal prep to the first dance (and beyond). We got the set pieces we requested and a plethora of candid, natural shots which capture our day perfectly. Nikki was very familiar with our venue and knew all the good nooks and crannies to get really wonderful pictures. A number of our guests commented on how great she was on the day. Getting her job done without imposing on the day and special time with family and friends. I would recommend her to anyone.
