BSC Wedding Photography is run by full-time wedding photographer and videographer; Graeme J. Baty, helped out by his lovely partner Lisa and our small team of various associate videographers.

A bit about Graeme and the company from the man himself

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 very late 30s, Newcastle born and bred. I have been working as a professional photographer for many years and have been published internationally with my photojournalism, event, video production, concert and portrait work.

I run the Newcastle upon Tyne based photography and video services company Blank Slate Creative Ltd. As ‘Blank Slate Creative Wedding Photography’ proved a bit too long-winded, so we abbreviated to BSC! I didn’t really want to name the business after my own name as it’s a bit cliche and I have not one, but two weird spellings in my name! This seemed the best solution and I’m really proud of what we’ve achieved with the BSC business over the years. Hence we became BSC Wedding Photography.

How did you get into wedding photography?

I photoed my first wedding in 2012 for a good friend how kindly trusted me to capture his big day and (frankly) it was quite a terrifying experience. Now 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 from customers. 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 fulltime in other sectors.

In 2019 I finally decided to make my dream a reality, investing my life savings in the business and camera equipment! I left my job to become a fulltime wedding and portrait photographer. It was a scary move but it now means I can now photo/video around 30-40 weddings per year and dedicate my time to providing customers with a fab service.

It is really the best job I’ve ever had and it’s quite amazing to see how much my work has improved 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! “
