The Photographer

Paul Shrive


Paul lives in Southport and has done all of his life. 

He lives with his wife, Sonia, two nutty children, the family cat and a number of outdoor Koi carp (fish).  When he’s not working, he spends his free time with his family.  He has a few vocations under his belt from being a Logistics Manager to working in television as well as being a qualified recording studio engineer, however, there has always been one thing that has been consistent in his life and that is his love of photography.

Paul really can’t put his finger on why he feels so at home with taking pictures, maybe it’s because he is always wrestling for perfection with the shots he captures or it could be that he's driven by shooting that ‘moment’ in time that can never be repeated. 

He aims to translate and create an image of what is in the mind of a customer and wants you to be as passionate about the pictures he captures on your behalf just as he is about taking them.


Matthew Ormesher


Matthew is the father of five wonderful and very active children who like to keep him on his toes, we are sure he comes to work for a rest ! He was born and raised in Southport and still lives here along with his family. 

Photography seems to be in the Ormesher bloodline, as his father, Harry Ormesher, was a re-known glamour photographer in the 70's and his brother, Bradley Ormesher, a high profile sports photographer.

He is at his best working with people and loves being able to capture those moments that are special to each and every individual, whether that be shooting at a wedding, christening or in the studio.  He is deeply personal in what he produces and everything he creates is from the heart.
