Hi, and a very warm welcome to my website and company, Shining Through Photography. It is named this because I have always felt that people, and place, can shine through photography.
It is a medium and art form that, if done well, can bring them to life while at the same time, are never changing. I have been photographing since the age of 13 when I bought my first camera (a 35mm file camera) and since then photography has been a passion of mine.
In Nov 2019 I turned that hobby into a business. Sadly, due to Coronovrius, 2020 was a year we'd probably all like to forget so it wasn't great timing. However in 2021 I became a Master Photographer (certified by the MPA) and have won many highly commended monthly awards.
My photography has featured in Essex Life, Maldon & Burnham and Dengie Hub news. My great joy is to photograph people and places. This website will show you some of my recent photography as well as a link to my prints section, which although small, I have stated to grow.
If you would like photography in Burnham-on-Crouch, Maldon, Chelmsford or surrounding areas by a certified master photographer, at a very affordable price then please do get in touch.
A family wanted me to take photographs which was a combined outdoor family and engagement shoot. We had a whole bunch of fun and I'm so pleased that they really liked the images. These were shot in Burnham-on-Crouch, Essex and it was a mix of action shots of the two boys, some family photoshoots and some of course of the newly engaged couple. It was a real privilege to be there and for them to use our imagery as their engagement announcement.
It was a great pleasure in supporting a local actor in providing his professional headshots. Having featured in several films, Craig Dowsett has been getting a lot of attention from casting and agents and needed to provide them with a series of professional shots. We used our local pop-up studio using a great studio space along the quayside in Burnham-on-Croouch. Facilities include air-conditioning, toilets and access to hot food and drink via the Bistro next to the studio.
Craig is starring in the new brit horror slash Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey, probably not one for the children though amongst horror and brit film fans it has already built a cult following, even before launch. Link to an article by Variety here.
We offer outdoor family shoots at a location convenient to you. Please get in touch to discuss your requirements further.
We work in collaboration with Bistro on the Quay and their adjacent studio. Please find the address below but it is by appointment only not walk-in as this is a shared studio so requires pre-booking.
