Essay Photography

  Hi there, let me tell you a little bit about Essay Photography and myself Sean.

"Essay Photography" was Created 12 years ago with the aim to service the photographic needs of Companies and Particularly the  School network. We saw a lack of engagement in School photography and wanted to inject new vigour and life into schools.

We love to capture Families and record their memories from birth through to generational portraits as Grand-parents.


  Our vibrant and breath taking work has been used in many School and Academies. Governing bodies and OFSTED have remarked on them along of course with the parents that they delight.

  We have filled the walls with our Storyboard artwork and parents homes with beautiful professional images to remember their children's School years, which pass by all so quickly.

I am a Qualified Photographer with the Master Photography Association

  Our Corporate clients love our Natural Portraits which they use for their headshots, and product shots which are taken to advertise their products to their prospective customers, examples of these can be seen on this website.

We offer fine art portraiture to families to produce timeless works of art - these are no ordinary portraits, these are crafted lifestyle and studio images of enchantment.
