A professional photographer from Bournemouth has been sponsored by Castlepoint Shopping Park to offer families a free personalised Christmas Card. Stuart Lane is using the latest green screen technology used by the movie industry, in the 'Snow Globe Photo' studio at Castlepoint. The technology combined with his six years heading the Photography Lane portrait studio, ensures a magical image which can be presented as Christmas cards, large prints or stocking fillers including key rings and fridge magnets.
Peter Matthews, General Manager at Castlepoint, said that when Stuart suggested the idea of the Snow Globe studio at the park for Christmas, they decided to sponsor the offer of the free gift to shoppers. "It's an amazing concept. We are delighted with the number of families that have already posed for their Christmas Card photo," said Peter Matthews. "Stuart has the experience to get the best out of people and knows all the tricks of the trade to get that special shot of the kids that can often evade parents!"
Stuart and his team will be at the Snow Globe Studio (near the lower deck entrance of Marks & Spencer) until the 23rd December (Weekdays and Saturdays between 11am and 6pm. Sundays 11am 4:30pm.) where the images are printed within minutes for busy shoppers. "The use of the green screen, with our in house themed designs, brings a new dimension of magic and intrigue to Christmas Cards and offers a fun and light hearted experience for the children that visit us. It has never been done before and we are thrilled to be introducing the concept here at the UK's largest shopping Park," said Stuart Lane.
