We are an Independent family run Social 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 offerings


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 umistakeable style throughout that holds true to the 'Musselwhite Photography' brand and the way we connect with people.
