Creative aspects of the business stretch from props and set design (you will see her painting backdrops & making costumes) to offering concept planning for videography & design services for corporate clients in web design, and logos.
Zoe has extensive experience in customer relations and we are really fortunate to welcome her to the team in 2022.
Zoe's wonderfully sunny personality is ready to help with queries, offer advice and be on hand to manage the diary. She is often your first contact with Musselwhite Photography & a super important member of the team.

Business & Creative >
We are an Independent Portrait Photography Studio. Originally Founded as 'Closer Photography' in 2008 for Wedding & Portrait Photography. In 2020 we have transitioned to Musselwhite Photography to reflect the changes in the business to a wider offering including commercial photography, videography, and James' mentoring, teaching & speaking assignments.
We love Photography, we love imagery, we love the possibilities of a blank piece of paper. We may offer a variety of services but there is an unmistakeable style throughout our work that holds true to the 'Musselwhite Photography' brand and the way we connect with people.
