Welcome to 1803 Photography

Based in Thornhill, Dumfries and Galloway, 1803Photography provide their clients with high end, contemporary portrait photography. They have two great studios, both within easy reach of Dumfries and the M74 which allows for great access for those travelling from Edinburgh, Glasgow and Carlisle. 1803Photography specialise in Contemporary Portrait photography - whether that be studio based, lifestyle in your home or out on location. Our aim for every single photography session is to create heirloom artwork; our artwork is designed to last a lifetime.

Using a mixture of the great outdoors and our professional studios, we will create wonderful portraits for you to treasure forever. In the studio we have a selection of backdrops for you to choose; whether that be muslin for the fine art, painterly look, paper for a modern approach or vinyl for a more vintage theme. Outside we know lots of great locations in the vicinity for you to have your portraits captured; that could be the forest, the rivers and lochs or even a castle. We are also more than happy for you to choose a location that holds special meaning to you and your family. 

We will select the best photos from the session, carefully and tastefully edit and retouch them and then show them to you using a video slidehsow at our studio at your viewing and ordering session, usually 7-10 days after your session. A price list will be provided to you at your pre session consultation with details of the artwork that we typically provide. If you are looking for a non-typical size or print medium we will be happy to provide you with a price - please ask.

All of our artwork is ordered from a professional print lab here in Scotland. Every piece of artwork that you order is carefully tailored to your request and we make sure that the technical specification is accurate and optimised for every image. Images are also processed on a calibrated monitor ensuring accurate colouring and are also colour checked at the printing lab. 

For orders over £4000 we will also install any artwork into your home at no additional cost.

Please contact us for more information and we will book you in for a consultation to discuss your requirements.
