This copy was written for the ‘About’ page of AlisonBartonPhotography.co.uk. This is the official business website for Alison Barton, a female photographer, based in the West Midlands. Alison specialises in wedding photography, family portraiture, promotional business photography, and equine & canine photography.
In the interests of full disclosure, Alison is my sister, and this allowed me to provide copy which I believe gave a highly personal insight into Alison as a photographer.

Passion is at the heart of everything that I do. My passion and enthusiasm for photography as an art form, combines with my commitment to capturing beautiful memories for my clients that will last a lifetime and beyond.
My dad was a fantastic amateur photographer, who captured my childhood in images that I will cherish for the rest of my life. As a result, I grew up surrounded by photographs, whether in my family’s numerous photo albums, in frames on my Gran’s sideboard, or on the walls of my family home.
My dad passed on to me his love of photography, and nurtured my interest in the craft. This interest was further developed by my art lessons at school. I knew that photography was something that I wanted to be part of my future, and I went on to hone my skills and foster my passion firstly at art college, and then at the nationally renowned University College Falmouth, where I received a Bachelor of Arts Degree with Honours in Photography.
I adore working with both people and animals, building up a special working relationship to allow me to capture their unique qualities and the nuances of their personalities. I aim to build a mutually respectful and trusting working relationship with my clients, putting them at ease in front of the camera, so that I can capture genuine natural emotions. There really is no other art form quite like photography, and its capacity for capturing truth, beauty and emotion still astound me.
I wish for everyone to have what I have had throughout my life; to be surrounded by images of special moments and cherished memories. I feel privileged to be able to provide clients with the opportunity to capture these special moments, and it is a pleasure to witness them.
