About Russell Neal

Russell Neal SWPP


I have lived in Bishops Stortford for the past 15 years. I have a wonderfully supportive wife, two children and two dogs that keep me busy, I am obsessed by fresh coffee but can’t make a good brew for love nor money, I love science fiction movies and I love most kinds of music. I am an introvert by nature, humble and honest. My passion for art derives from school where I loved to create clay sculptures and spend hours sketching everyday items trying to make them look as realistic as possible. I first fell in love with photography when my parents encouraged me to expand on my artistic skills by giving me my first 35mm camera where I would take photos of everyday landscapes and then highlight where I thought I could have improved them. These days, I am even more creative, I can’t draw as well as I would like so I use cameras, a large chunk of experience and a sprinkle of imagination to bring my images to life.


– In 2009 I received a diploma in both wedding and portrait photography.

– In 2010 I received my official photography qualification through the Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers by submitting a selection of real wedding photographs to a panel for strict scrutiny.

– In 2016 I joined the MPA (Masters of Photography Association) where I intend to expand on my knowledge and qualifications.


The studio is a purpose built loft conversion at my home in Thorley, Bishop’s Stortford. I have a passion for photographing a wide range of subjects, from corporate headshotscommercial product photographyfamily portraits and wedding photography. The fully equipped photography studio is perfect for couples and small families that are looking for a fresh studio style portrait. My style as a wedding photographer is a mixture of modern contemporary, traditional and documentary styles that produce the best modern wedding albums. I love to create something new at each wedding using professional studio lighting.


Our mission is to take and make beautiful quality art of people and for people. To give them the best customer experience we can give at reasonable prices.

We want to push the boundaries of portraiture and capture those once in a lifetime moments
