So if you just want to have a nosey or want to get to know the team a bit more before your visit, have a look below for some facts and fun on our studio team!
ANDREW - OWNER / DIRECTOR
I am passionate about my family and my photography! With having had four children in less than three years, I am certainly experienced in the rigours of family life. I think that enables me to create a warm, welcoming and relaxed environment where children, adults and the whole family can have fun enjoying each other’s company, while we capture natural images.
At weekends, I enjoy playing the piano and guitar, cycling in the countryside around Manchester and going on hill walking holidays.
