Bellwood Photography was started in 1949 when Eric Bellwood left the RAF, where
he had served as a photographer in the rank as Sergeant. His duties had included
the fitting of camera guns to Aircraft, as well as the processing of reconnaissance
photographs and air accident investigation.
Initially the business was based in Pitsmoor, a few years later it moved to Stannington.
The studio is now run by Eileen and Mike Bellwood from purpose built premises just
off Stannington road.
Mike Bellwood had a formal photographic education at one of the top UK colleges.
He is a member of the British Institute of Professional Photographers and an Associate
of the Royal Photographic Society.
Eileen Bellwood Bsc, specialises in digital print enhancement, brochure and web designs.
Special photographic effects and layout designs they have created are used by 100’s
of photographers worldwide.
