Sportraits by ActivePix:


ActivePix was launched in 2017 to provide parents of children participating in sports events an opportunity to capture those proud moments, forever.

As a Dad to a young rugby player and cricketer and a keen photographer, ActivePix founder Nick Browning had always taken photos of his son, Shaun, in action and regularly purchased digital images and prints whenever one of the national photographic businesses attended an event.  However, in recent years, Nick had noticed how rarely these companies were present at sports tournaments, festivals and matches.

This, coupled with increasing requests from other parents for photos of their children on the pitch, led Nick to realise that he could combine his sporting and photographic passions to create a new service within the region. So, ActivePix was born!

Since launching, Nick has invested in pro-level Canon camera bodies and lenses, ensuring ActivePix’s images are on a par with the national sports photography providers. 

ActivePix works primarily with schools and sports clubs in the Solihull and Coventry districts.

Nick’s children, Michaela and Shaun, spent many happy years at Balsall Common Primary School and that close link has been maintained through his stepson, Lucas.
