Michael Cartwright Photography


Michael Cartwright is a professional photographer and workshop leader covering a wide range of photographic genres. He is a proud "generalist" and has gained skills in landscape, wedding, portrait and commercial photography. He has been commissioned to author the forthcoming Fotovue photography guidebook to the North York Moors national park

"Over the past 15 years I have forged a career in professional photography creating a hugely varied role within the industry.

Since studying at Teesside University and Cleveland College of Art and Design I have gained a vast amount of working experience shooting landscape commissions, weddings, portraits, commercial projects, property, food, schools, sports, drone imagery and everything inbetween.

In 2014 I opened our photography studio in Yarm, Teesside.

My location in North East England provides great access to the North York Moors, the Yorkshire Dales, Northumberland and The Lake District National Parks, areas which I find myself exploring time and time again, drawn to these places by their natural beauty and peaceful ambience.

I enjoy helping others to achieve their goals, particulary in landscape photography and am lucky to have many returning clients. 

My style in both business and life is to remain grounded, loyal, unpretentious and laid back. My only aim is to provide a quality service to a select number of valued clients who appreciate an honest approach. 

When I'm not taking photographs you can find me spending time with my family, playing a round of golf or enjoying a cold beer in a cosy pub!"
