FORMER Hollyoaks star Karen Hassan paid a visit to a photo studio in Kibworth to get some new pictures for her portfolio.
Clearvision Imagery has been trading for two years with business partners Linda Wren (46) and Cat Bradley (32) moving into their studio in Fleckney Road at the start of the year.
Linda takes charge of the marketing side of the business while Cat is the photographer.
Though they are involved in wedding photography and family portraits they also do a lot of work with celebrities.
Hassan got in touch with the pair after the company was recommended to her by a friend whose pictures were taken by Clearvision.
Linda said: “She was really nice. Really down to earth, just a nice lady. She was focused on her work.
“We did head shots with her to start with. She also wanted some portfolio pictures to use on other projects.”
They have worked with characters from EastEnders, Coronation Street and Hollyoaks.
Hassan came to Kibworth to have her pictures done rather than having Clearvision come to her. The portfolio pictures were taken at Kilworth House.
They recently did a photo shoot with actor Lucien Laviscount in London where they were given less than 24 hours to organise everything.
Linda said: “We just had a couple of hours to get the venue. It can be quite stressful but it is very exciting.”
Though they both enjoy going on location and high profile jobs they get equal enjoyment from the other side of their business.
Linda said: “When you do a viewing for a family portrait and they are crying because they’re so happy with the pictures; it is all different but all great.”
