Professional Photographer Oldham

Hello and welcome to Shy Violet Photography run by Gaynor Wilson, Professional Photographer.   Relaxed, informal and creative photography covering portraits of all ages, weddings, make-overs & boudoir and commercial work.

Our studio is based in a lovely old Mill ‘Woodend Mills’ in the heart of Springhead, Saddleworth, near Oldham. It’s a comfortable studio which has been designed to make you feel immediately relaxed with plenty of soft seating where we can chat about our ideas and my recommendations for your session. Shy Violet Photography caters for just about everything … from newborn portraits, to the Cake Smash sessions, our NEW ‘Bubbles’ sessions, small and large family groups, couples, parties … people of all ages from all walks of life.

I’m not just studio based, travelling nationwide for weddings, and am happy to cover all commercial and location work in the North West of England.

All photographers have their own style, brought about by their personality. My personality lends itself to those seeking something creative, something fun with an informal and quirky feel, creating images with an artistic and innovative flair for you to cherish a lifetime.

I take the time to relax you and make you feel comfortable so that you can genuinely enjoy your photo session – ensuring it’s excellent fun and a very memorable experience!
