Moving On To Pastures New
26th September 2017
After four enjoyable years at my Poynton studio, I have decided to move on to a new challenge. The studio will be closed after Friday 29th September.

A huge thank you to all my wonderful customers - family portraits, wedding couples, restorations, commercial clients and landscape gallery customers. I've helped bring joy to many, and that has been immensely rewarding.

Any existing portrait or wedding customers who wish to purchase any photographs or albums, or any existing restoration customers who wish to purchase reprints, simply drop me a line via the contact page.

5x4"
10x8"
Plus all other sizes in-between.

All as either positive or negative film or transparency.
