Saddleworth Photography Studio


We have a modern purpose built studio in our 200 year old weavers cottage.   The lovely architecture and setting of the studio and gallery  produces a truly unique portrait experience. We use both modern flash lighting and techniques and we  use the natural soft window light of our studio to produce beautiful and stylish unique portraits.


It’s great fun to have your portrait session out on location.  We have so much great scenery just minutes from the studio, or we can go further afield. We could even spend some time with you in your home as you hang out, bake cakes, play football, jump on the beds, what ever you do for fun we can capture it. What about  a day out at the seaside or fun in the park? Even in Autumn and Winter the photo opportunities are endless.


Lets have a chat about the space in your house that you envisage your portrait hanging. We can style your portrait shoot to fit and have a range of frames and wall art to show you. Coupled with our award winning professional photography you are guaranteed a piece of original art for your wall that will look good for generations to come.

Using our years of studio experience we have lovingly converted our 200 year old listed building into a sate of the art purpose built studio. Keeping all the original features has allowed us to produce something quite unique as far as studios go. Studios can be characterless places but we have been able to use these features to great effect in photo shoots. These beautiful windows allow lots of natural light to flood into the studio, which produces beautiful natural looking shots without the need for powerful studio flash. This is great to produce a realxing environment, especially  for children, and it really helps the session flow.

Children tend not to sit in one place for too long (you know that already being a parent don’t you!)…  We positively encourage children to act naturally and unlike  other traditional studios we will get the shot for sure. We have years of experience photographing models, actors… but also people who aren’t used to being in front of a camera and find it an uneasy thing….. We encourage you not to worry as we have a really relaxed and chilled out atmosphere to make you feel comfortable and are experienced i the little tips and tricks it takes to get you to relax.

We are situated in the lovely picturesque Saddleworth Village of Uppermill. why not make use of the stunning scenery and have a relaxed fun outdoor lifestyle portrait, or mix a studio session with an outdoor portrait, we know many great locations only minutes from the studio. Why don’t you make your portrait session a fun day out for the family. Uppermill offers a wide verity of activities from walks along the canal and round local reservoirs . There are  lots of local independent shops, restaurants and coffee shops to occupy the whole family for a very full day. All this makes a portrait with Tim Simpson Photography an event to treasure on the day and for generations to come.

I look forward to meeting you.
