Villagers Snap Up Some Fun

For contemporary wedding, lifestyle and portrait photography in Warwickshire and the West Midlands visit Avon Studios

A giant roll of film, whose starring moment was almost marred by a ferry hold up, took to the streets of Wellesbourne at the weekend as part of an open day held by a photographic studio in the village.

Peter Essex with Superior Sam at Avon Studios Open DayHundreds of visitors poured into Avon Studios in Kineton Road on Saturday to enjoy face painting and playing on a bouncy castle - just some of the attractions put on to celebrate a major refurbishment, which makes it the only shop of its kind in Warwickshire.

The refit - which means the studio can now call itself a Fuji Image Service Centre - is the culmination of a series of major investments in the business, which include the latest technology to enable staff to develop films in one hour.

The giant roll of film - Fuji's mascot Superior Sam - had to be transported to Wellesbourne by taxi from the North of England following a ferry delay after a visit to the Isle of Man.

Superior Sam toured the village with Avon Studios photographers who snapped the character with the children he encountered on his travels. The photos were processed within an hour and given free to the youngsters in the pictures.

Mums and dads relaxed with a glass of bubbly in the studio gardens while their children burned off excess energy.

"Being the only Fuji Image Service Centre in the county means we can ensure our standards are always high - as our products and services are constantly monitored by Fuji," explained manager Andrew Sheppard.

"We only use Fuji's Crystal Archive paper - which remains in pristine condition for sixty years - and can ensure consistent quality and run exclusive special offers while still retaining our independence."
