A FORDINGBRIDGE photographer will be opening his studio doors to the public on Saturday, July 19 from midday until 4pm.

Paul Sumner, right, has invited mayor Malcolm Connolly to be his special guest at his Fryern Court Road premises.

Visitors will be able to tour the studios and have a light buffet. They will also receive a 16” signing frame offer with wedding packages and the chance to win free family and pet portrait sessions.

Mr Sumner also offers a ten per cent discount on all purchases for all serving armed forces personnel.

He said: “My passion for photography came from my career as a marine engineer, travelling the globe and living and working all over the world.”
