A relaxed calming environment, made me feel at ease, with professional yet personalised attention. I would highly recommend for a creative shoot.
You can also reserve a professional make over to give you the most glamourous or natural look. The divers extensive experience really shows in all aspects of their services.
Thank you, I will definately be visiting you again.

Divers Photography is a family owned and run business and comprises of a professional, award winning photographer (John, who has over 30 years experience in taking photographs!), a globally recognised makeup artist and a studio co-ordinator. The team is extremely friendly, fun and makes having your photograph taken an unforgettable experience. The actual photographs themselves are absolutely stunning - the albums and folio boxes are all designed by John himself and crafted in Italy which gives the products an extra special, luxurious feel. I would recommend this company to absolutely anybody who wants to have an empowering photographic experience or who simply wants to give a beautiful gift to somebody they love. More...

We always chat with you about your upcoming shoot and listen to you, understanding your needs is key to providing you with the images you need. We always give helpful advice and during the shoot we are prepared to change and adapt to the situation.

Take the time to think "what is the end product?" Think about what you require and what you want to do with the images we take for you. If you are buying images for the wall plan where you are going to display your images. Just like buying furnishings for the home consider the colour scheme and work with the photographer to help you match and achieve the look you are after.

The best part of my job is meeting new friends, in fact one of my sayings is "it's people who matter in life" we really do care about you.
We love creating lasting memories that will outlive us all.

I was always inspired with photographs and story of the image, I could not draw and wanted to create art, I could see a landscape and want to capture that feeling and emotion of what I was seeing. A camera helped me to keep the memories alive. I never thought I could do this as a job but always dreamt of it.
Today we are loosing our memories and not existing in print, lots of digital photographs are taken but very few get printed. I am in business because I want all of my clients to have memories to show to their grandchildren, something tangible, not just an image on a screen.

We are a family run business with family values, and have over 20 years professional experience. Covering many genres from commercial to the circle of life events.
Over the years we have won multi awards from Fujifilm, Kodak and the Master Photographers Association.
We always work to exceed your expectations.
