Business certainly took a turn for two keen photographers who met and decided to have a career change in their mid 50s.

They learned the craft through a series of classes and workshops in their own time and now portrait photographers Lincoln Roth and Perrin Read, from Roth Read Photography, have teamed up with Bar Fibre to offer a brand new ‘celebrity’ style photoshoot.

With private booths, decadent, ambient lighting and champagne style partying in the exclusive top floor Penthouse suite at Bar Fibre until the early hours it makes for a vast change from the city rat-race nine to five.

Mr Roth said: “The Penthouse is a stunning location which creates amazing backdrops so our clients receive something rather special to hang on their walls.”

When she was thinking about the career change Ms Read had cared for her father for 11 years and when he passed away her life became her own again and she wanted to be creative with it and do a job where she had an impact on how people felt about themselves.

She said: “We really love inspiring people to feel confident in their skin. We help everyone with posing techniques and it’s wonderful to see how uplifted they are at the end of a shoot. Basically, we just have a load of fun”.

Away from the office and the camera the pair are both black belt martial artists and Mr Roth is a bass player.
