If you believe you have a gift for taking photographs, want the best and most intensive training to enable you to fulfil your dreams; Barrett & Coe will exceed your expectations.

Established in 1995, Barrett & Coe are a leading brand in Wedding and Portrait Photography in the UK and Ireland. Franchising is an ideal way to go into business for yourself but not by yourself. Not only do you benefit from following a tried and test business model, you are also trading an established brand name and have the full training and support of our highly experienced team.

We use our knowledge and experience to teach our franchisees how to create contemporary and innovative photography, helping them to run their own successful wedding and portrait photography business. Our training turns those with a passion for photography into professional photographers.

However, being a good photographer will not guarantee financial success. It is necessary to fully understand what is needed to operate a profitable business – and we’ll teach you all about that too!

We offer a unique and exciting franchise that can be used to supplement your current income or as a prestigious full time occupation with high remuneration.

Try before you buy!

You may be wary of committing a large capital sum to buy a franchise. Our training allows you to "try before you buy". You can attend one of our nationally recognised Wedding and/or Portrait courses which last over a period of time with monthly seminars, to help you decide if our franchise is right for you.

Should you decide to go ahead with the franchise, your course fees will be deducted from the initial franchise fees. To take this route you will need a minimum of photography equipment.

Alternatively, you may want to get things going more quickly and take the Fast track route, in which case we can tailor training to your requirements

Barrett & Coe Training and Support

Our leaders Andrew Coe and Elaine Sheppard, are experts in their field with proven stunningly successful career achievements. Simply the best and most experienced of course tutors in Portrait and Wedding photography.

We aim to be the best supported franchise network in the UK and we will help you every step of the way, making sure that you are equipped with the knowledge and skills required to run your own photography franchise. You will benefit from ongoing training and support from us at the launch and on an ongoing basis, as well as continuous network support from fellow franchisees.

You will also benefit from national promotions. These form a major part of Barrett & Coe’s support to franchisees. National promotions and partnerships are set up at Head Office level and generate franchisees additional booked sessions in their diaries, alongside those from your local marketing, or in some cases leads that they are able to follow up on and convert. Some of these promotions require a studio.
