Portrait of Luna, a Bolognese puppy

Stephen Allan of Essenay Photography


To capture a slice of life, and display it in the finest possible print


I have been involved in the photographic arts for over thirty years. Working in the documentary and environmental portrait fields, capturing the wonder and beauty of the surrounding world. Using a variety of cameras in large and medium formats. Creating fine prints in the darkroom, using a variety of photographic techniques. From archivally produced silver gelatine prints, to traditionally inspired techniques printing in silver, palladium, gold, and cyanotype.

I will make your portrait, either in your own home, or at a favourite location of your choice, and create heirloom prints for you to treasure. The highest archival standards are followed in the development and printing of my work, all of which is carried out in my own darkroom.
