While many local artists have chosen photographic work as their main medium, and you can find beautifully artistic photographs throughout the islands, family events from weddings and christenings to anniversaries and graduations are also well catered for.

Family portraits, celebrating the birth of a baby and passport photographs can be easily arranged. Corporate photography for publicity, advertising, websites or in-house magazines is covered, as are the recording of news and community events. You can hire a photographer to take images for your book or buy a book created by a photographer.

Services from picture repairs to printing to enhancement of your own photographs can all be done for you without leaving Orkney. Calendars, postcards, framed prints and posters featuring Orkney's stunning coastal and landscape images can be bought off the shelf.
