Welcome to Andy Whittaker photography
At Andy Whittaker Photography I specialise in all forms of portraiture. Amazing portraits are a collaboration between the photographer and the subject or subjects.
As one of Cheshires best portrait photographers and recent winner of the BIPP (British Institute of Professional Photography) Portrait Photographer of the year 2019 with over 25 years experience. I have photographed thousands of people and created stunning pieces of personal artwork for their walls. My aim is to create fantastic beautiful portraits just for you and your family, something that you can be proud to hang on your walls and that evokes an emotional reaction.
Your portraits will be something that you will treasure forever and will be an heirloom that you can pass to your children in years to come or that your children will be able to look at and remember their childhood in years to come. I want to create the images of your best self, the relaxed you, the you that you know you are when the daily grind isn’t getting you down.
A portrait shoot with Andy Whittaker Photography can be a Family shoot, a shoot of your amazing kids, a shoot of you and your partner or feel like a celebrity or model and have images created of just you. Let me take the challenge of creating something that will change the way you see yourself and/or your family. You wont regret it, in fact you will own the best photograph that anyone has ever taken of you.
I invite you to a personal photoshoot with me where you will look amazing, feel amazing and when you come back to view your images you will be blown away.
I look forward to seeing you in the studio and creating your personal artwork.

“Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”
— Aaron Siskind
“Photography for me is not looking, it’s feeling. If you can’t feel what you’re looking at, then you’re never going to get others to feel anything when they look at your pictures.”
— Don McCullin
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 25 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.
