Photographer Shiralee Swan

Hi, I'm Shiralee, a horse-loving, coffee drinking, fulltime photographer. Living just outside Basildon in Essex. With a passion for capturing life's special moments.

Yes, I live in Fobbing in Essex but my travel often takes me to other counties and locations throughout the U.K. to photograph beautiful horses and dogs with their humans. I also love to photograph Weddings, I only accept a few per year.

I was Senior Photographer at a Regional Newspaper based in Billericay for 13 yrs. until it closed in August 2019.

As a Senior Newspaper Photographer of 13 years, I have a Commercial portfolio second to none. I photographed for all departments of the Newspaper. News Desk, Features department and for Advertising.

Having photographed all members of the Royal family along with people from all walks of life along with thousands of children across Essex, East London and Havering.

Horse and Dog Portrait Specialist

Being a horse and dog owner I understand the relationship we have with our animals

Lowkey my specialist style including black background portraits, black background portraits are produced by having an in-depth knowledge of the Nikon equipment that I use. I am a registered Nikon Professional User. They are not Photoshop edits.

Capturing imagery that represents the bond and love for our horses and dogs while focusing on the use of natural light and creating fine art pieces that will stand the test of time.

Documentary Wedding Photography

Choosing the right wedding photographer can seem like a daunting task. With so many photographers to choose from!

There aren't too many that have a strong Equestrian background as I do if you dream of having your horse at your wedding.

Lots of couples tell me that they don't like their photographs being taken. Which is where my style of capturing the Wedding day in a Documentary Style really helps.

Coming from a Press background Documentary Photography is second nature for me.

What is a Documentary Style Wedding Photography?

Quite simply having a keen eye to see things as they happen it is unobtrusive, unstaged, relaxed style of capturing one of the most important days of your lives.

We can include Bride and Groom portraits and family groups I am happy to do that for you too.
