Susan Torkington Photography


Thanks for visiting my site, I hope you enjoy looking around! 

I fell in love with photography after having my children and embarked on a Professional Photography degree from which I graduated with distincion in 2014. Now based in the heart of Edinburgh city centre at my studio on Frederick Street, I love the variety my job brings and the lovely people I am fortunate enough to meet. I enjoy both the relaxing vibe of working in my studio and the excitment of going on location, so whatever your vision, I can't wait to work with you to create your perfect imagery.

I'd love to hear from you so please do get in touch. 


My walls are covered in family portraits and I love every single one of them. They never fail to make me smile as I remember when they were taken. I love to capture emotions and special times in people's lives - the bond between siblings, the new found confidence of a 16 year old, the wisdom of an 80 year old and all the special times in between!
