Introducing BSC

BSC Weddings is run by full-time wedding photographer; Graeme J Baty.

A bit about BSC from the man himself...


I am Graeme, I'm Newcastle born and bred and I'm in my early 40's.


I run the Newcastle upon Tyne based photography services company Blank Slate Creative Media LTD.


My main love in life is photography and it is my full-time job. It's safe to say I have my dream job! I'm in my early forties. I currently live in Newcastle, where I was born and bred.


I have been working as a professional photographer for many years and have been published internationally with my music photojournalism, event, video production and portrait work.

BSC Wedding Photography

I photoed my first wedding in 2012 for a good friend, who kindly trusted me to capture his big day and (frankly) it was quite a terrifying experience. Looking back, I've found that I thrive in the challenging environment of a wedding, it can be quite an exhilarating experience and really pushes you creatively like no other area of photography I've worked in. 


From that day I think I'd caught the bug and continued to do weddings for friends and referrals. Around 2015 I began to take things to the next level and from then I managed to build cover up to 10 weddings a year, which was tough as I was still working full-time in other sectors. 


In 2019 I finally decided to make my dream a reality, investing my life savings in the new business and camera equipment! I left my job to become a full-time wedding and portrait photographer. It was a scary move but it now means I can now photo around 40 weddings per year and dedicate my time to providing customers with a fab service.

Got to pull a funny face in a posh place! I love my job :)

It is really the best job (even with recent challenges to the wedding industry!) I've ever had and it's quite amazing to see how much my work has changed and continues to evolve as I dedicate myself to wedding coverage.



I absolutely love wedding photography. There's nothing like the excitement you get when you hand over the finished photos and see the couple's reaction!

Awards


I don't really do awards, as it kind of goes against my relaxed approach to wedding photography and quite frankly I prefer to concentrate on my work and customer service without any fuss. TBH, I'm usually too shy to even ask customers to leave me a review 🤣


That said, I do quite like this ranking on MyWed as it's voted for 100% by other wedding photographers 📸💜 Rated in the Top 3 Newcastle and somehow the top 30 in the UK!

Equipment info (the nerdy bit!)


We're a bunch of camera nerds at heart and have spent a lot of time researching and investing in the best gear for the job. We use modern all digital equipment. As of 2023, we're now fully Fuji! Also fully in love with Classic Chrome which we use for about 90% of our colour photos.


We try to keep equipment to a small footprint on the day, so as not to get in the way of the proceedings and allow us to have a natural documentary style.


Photography main equipment

Fuji XH2s (x2)

Fuji XH1 (backup)


Lenses

We generally use prime lenses exclusively for a more pleasing and creative aesthetic. This also allows us to photography darker ceremonies without using flash.

Fuji 18mm f1.4 WR

Fuji 23mm f1.4 WR

Fuji 56mm f1.2 WR

Fuji 90mm f2 (used for portraits, speeches and big church weddings)

Fuji 35mm f2 (backup lens)

Fuji 16mm f2.8 (for group shots)

Samyang 12 mm f2


Flash photography and softboxes

We use flash very sparingly on your day, with 99% of the day will be captured using natural light. We are acutely aware that flash is distracting to you and your guests and will use it only when necessary. After all our style is documentary and the best photos tend to be the moments when people don't know they're being photoed :)


For full-day bookings and evening parties we will set up 3 light stands with remotely operated triggers around the venue. Again this is used sparingly but allows us to work in even the darkest of venues with ease.


We use special techniques to give you the most dramatic and beautiful images using off-camera flash along with colour gels for that amazing studio photography style pop!


Examples of our off-camera flash techniques. If you are booking a full day package this allows us much more time to get creative and get some stunning portraits for you to treasure.
