Our Passion is your portrait. 

Welcome and thank you for visiting our Website

I first picked up a camera in 1981 taking mainly Landscapes & Wildlife photographs. In 1992 I sold my first images, and it remained this way until In 2014 when we became solely portrait photographers.  I should say it was all by accident, not design. Portraiture found me not the other way round and we have enjoyed every minute creating images of and for people like you.  

Our aim from the start was to create beautiful actual photographs that you can hold, love and would be proud to hang on your wall, not a digital file which gets stuck in a drawer somewhere. (don't worry we give the digital file with every print purchased so you have both). 

These Photographs will become more valuable with each and every generation. This still is our driving force 

Photography is a powerful medium at its worst it can make us cry, despair, wonder and shock, but it can also remind us of times gone by, what and who is important. its a moment in time for you to love, look at and share for the rest of your life. 

I love meeting, & photographing everyday hard working people and listening to their story. Creating photographs and dispelling doubts and myths that you may have about yourself for me is what I love to do, there is no greater feeling of joy, than when I show someone their own image, and I see a large smile appear on their face, or even on occasions a tear of joy in their eye. The realisation that they are beautiful for some can be quite an emotional moment. To be able to get such a reaction is a privilege and one I strive to achieve every time.

Life passes us by so quickly. We all get tangled up in the day to day comings and goings of time. When you book a photo shoot with us it's not just about taking images it's about the experience. It's extremely important to us that you enjoy your time with us. if your having a good time you will be more relaxed which in turn means your Photographs will look amazing. 

Time can change things so quickly, We grow older but photographs capture a moment in time that's there forever. To have those images to look at and share in years to come will always bring a smile and ignite a fond memory.  

The Portraits we create are not just for you, they are for all that love you, both present, and future generations. For yourself they can boost your confidence, They let you see your beauty. For those around you, they are treasured images which only grow in value as time moves forward.

You will never regret having portraits of yourself and those you love. Regrets are for those people who missed the chance to capture a moment in their life to share forever.

Nigel Atkinson,

With over 25 years of Photographic experience behind him, Nigel's love for creating images is as strong as ever. He has worked serving the public all his working life. He loves meeting people and really loves seeing the reaction from clients when they see their own Photographs for the first time. Married to Julie, and a stepfather to Rosie, He loves the natural world, Motor racing and Rugby. He has travelled extensively including both the Arctic and Antarctica western Europe, Africa & the USA on a number of occasions. 

Julie Atkinson,

Julie is the Calm behind the storm, and probably one of the most caring people you could ever wish to meet. An intensive care nurse by day,  and a Qualified Massage Therapist (Kinisi Highland Massage). If you have not had one of her massages you're missing out. She always has a smile. is brilliant with children who take to her very quickly. She enjoys a good film and is always up for a laugh.  Her role in assisting Nigel includes many different but essential tasks.    

Steph Foster, 

Steph has been with us almost since We opened. A fun loving person and married to James who is a farmer. Though I don't think she would disagree if we said she is not your typical farmer's wife. She is also an Airbonne consultant, owner of Strawberry tarts Beauty and a registered Veterinary nurse. (hows that for a combination)  Steph is also a mother to two boys. Always full of fun. loves to travel and has a love of Country Music.
