I'm Nigel, a professional photographer based in Bolton, Lancashire, specialising in landscape photography workshops, wedding photography and outdoor family portraits. My wife, Jo, is a business partner with me, and assists in the running of the workshops and other aspects of the business.


Our ethos is to share our love of photography and our natural surroundings with others. On our landscape photography workshops we help people understand their cameras more and equip them to take better pictures. By keeping to small groups we are able to give attention to each person.


We collaborate with organisations such as The Woodland Trust Smithills Estate, Bolton, where we are part of the Smithills Enterprise Community of small businesses.  This involves providing images for their brochure, headshots for individuals and organising workshops on the estate.

As a Photography Consultant with People Plus on their Enterprising You scheme, I have enjoyed advising and tutoring small business owners on how to photograph their products. My own photographs have been used by mental health counsellors to help their clients relax with calming scenes, a local mental health charity and a funeral celebrant for their websites.


It is our absolute pleasure meeting a variety of people, and a privilege to be asked to capture their special moments on wedding days, or to photograph a family in a park or beauty spot. Being personable and getting along with others helps us immensely and here is how several clients have described us: 'patient', 'helpful' 'friendly' and 'knowledgeable'.


Have a browse through our website, and whether it’s workshops, weddings, portraits or prints, we’d love to help you. Please get in touch via the contact page.


Jo and I both hold DBS certificates, and we comply with current General Data Protection Regulations.
