About Orchard Photography Services

Orchard Photography Services was started in 2008 by Robert Coombes.

Robert has over 40 years of experience in photography having started at the tender age of 6 with his first “Brownie” film camera He progressed through all aspects of film photography and dark room processing under the strict tuition from his Photographer father.

Six years ago he finally succumbed and changed over to digital although he does still carryout a little film photography. Both digital and film photography have points for and against, however the positives and possibilities with digital photography are amazing and endless. Why not come along to our courses and release your creativity …
