About Andy Whittaker

Hi my name is Andy Whittaker and I have been a photographer for almost 25 years capturing families and children both digitally and on film. I like to shoot both traditional and modern style portraits depending on the requirements of my clients. All my work is studio based and I like to work with my clients to create stunning images that they can treasure forever.

As a father myself I know how hard it can be to make family time, a family portrait shoot is an ideal way to capture the spirit of your family. My shooting style is very informal, and I would like to think that customers get as much pleasure from the experience of the shoot itself as they do from the images they take home.

I have been lucky to be in a profession that I am so passionate about. I started taking pictures with a little instamatic camera at about 8 years old and was fascinated how you can capture a moment in time. After leaving school I enrolled at the local college to study photography with the hopes of turning my passion into a profession. After college I started working as an assistant in a fashion studio in Manchester where I learned a lot about studio lighting techniques. Over the past 23 years I have worked for several leading portrait studios creating family images for hundreds of clients. Eight years ago I decided to set up my own studio and create portraits for my own clients, since then I have had over 400 families come through my studio to create their own personal memories.

The thing I love about photography is it’s a continual learning experience. Even now I am still learning new styles and techniques that I like to add to my shoots. If you would like to have some images created for your home then please contact me. My studio is in Sale town centre and has easy access from the M60 ring road.

I look forward to bringing your rooms to life.
