Susan Torkington Photography

Hello

I'm lucky enough to live and work in beautiful Edinburgh. I'm married to Chris, have a teenage daughter and son (who feature regularly in my work!) and a big, silly cat called Max. After having my children and struggling with work / life balance, I decided to leave my career in IT services and pursue my passion in photography - and I've never looked back! I graduated with a BA (distinction) in Professional Photography in 2014 and now run my photography business from a lovely studio in the city centre. In my spare time I also run a holiday cottage in Perthshire, spend time with family and friends, and like to find time to take photos just for fun too.

I love the variety of my job and meeting lots of new people. I am a big believer in great customer service, so I will always go the extra mile to make sure you are delighted with the service I provide you.

At the Studio

I work from No 45 Studio in the heart of Edinburgh city centre on Frederick Street. It's a contemporary space with a relaxed vibe making it the perfect environment for a natural and fun session. You can choose your favourite music to listen to while we create your beautiful images.

If you want to make your session even more special, I work with a fabulous hair stylist and make up artist who will make you look amazing! 

On Location

If you fancy being in the great outdoors for your photo session, or at an indoor location of your choice, that is no problem. I am fully equipped to work on location and also know some great outdoor locations if you need help choosing. If the Scottish weather is not playing ball during your outdoor session preventing us from getting the images we want, I am happy to rearrange to a calmer day.
