About Us

"I want to take your photo. I want to take your family's photos. I want to give you the best photographic artwork that you have ever owned." Matt Ward - Principal Photographer at 1803Photography

Our journey starts with your consultation - this is usually done in person but if necessary it can be done over the phone or email. Your consultation will cover things such as date, location, styling, products and prices. After your consultation comes your photoshoot. Usually allow 1-2 hours for this, however if you are having a hair and make up artist then please allow 3-4 hours. Living in Scotland we cannot guarantee the weather, so if you opt for a location shoot and the weather is not suitable then we are more than happy to reschedule to suit you. Once we have done your photoshoot we will carefully retouch your images and prepare them for your viewing and ordering session. We would expect the ordering session to take place within 10 days of your photoshoot. At the ordering sesion we will talk you through the products available and help you decide on the right products for you and your home. When you have completed your order, the items will usually be delivered to my studio within 10 working days, although for some specialist wall art this may be slightly longer.

We invite you to our studio in Dumfries and Galloway to create your legacy and heirloom artwork. Please contact us to book in for your consultation.

Please note that due to high demand for our portrait photography, we are no longer offering wedding photography services.
