Portraits, Weddings, Training and Business Images… Why choose Neil Bankhurst Photography?

Here because you want pictures of things? Or people? Or maybe even to learn to take pictures yourself?

Good news – you’re in the right place!

At Neil Bankhurst Photography Limited we can help you with:

  • Capturing memories of your special day as ‘Precious Wedding Shots’.
    This is always affordable and we’re happy to join you anywhere from John O’Groats to Lands’ End.
  • Portraits of you or your loved ones; either from the comfort of your home or your favourite location.
    Whether you want sofa snuggles, park picnics or winter walks captured – we’ve got you covered!
  • Capturing special moments in time for you to remember and treasure.
    Wedding smiles, birthday dances, tiny baby cuddles and perfect portraits. We can’t make the moment last forever, but we can give you the next best thing.
  • Snapping professional business images as ‘Purple Aura Images’.
    We’ll make sure your website wows and your social media stands out with images that reflect the real value of the work you’re doing.
  • Training packages to take you from beginner to a professional standard.
    There’s no need for complicated jargon or expensive equipment. What we do is simple – teach you to take bloody good pictures! We can do this in person or even online via Zoom.

A couple of other bits you might want to know:

– We provide payment plans at no extra cost so your bank account will like us just as much as you do.

– You’ll get your photos on a USB stick so that you can print your images wherever, whenever and as many times as you’d like. There won’t be any annoying copyrights or watermarks, just the good stuff for you to print as you please.

– There’s no bulk editing around here. Each picture is edited individually, so it can be treated as the masterpiece it is.

– We’re a member of the Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers, The Guild of Photographers and the Federation of Small Businesses. You can trust that we know our stuff, and you’re in safe hands.


With the challenges facing us due to the covid pandemic, adapting and evolving was a must in order to help us survive. What better way to showcase our food than to get Neil Bankhurst with Purple Aura images in for a photo shoot!

While in the store Neil had great ideas to capture the images in different ways in order for us to have many images to use on social media and promotions alike. Upon receiving the photos after meticulous editing by Neil – the wow factor is an understatement of how good the shots are. To capture 1 photo of our full english stottie, it has had a reach of 15000 across social media, had mouths drooling and rocketed sales by 1200% vs sales prior to the photo being used on social media only 3 weeks ago.

The Stottie Company thank Neil at Neil Bankhurst – Purple Aura Images and we’d happily recommend Purple Aura Images. We look forward to working with Neil in the future on specialist product ideas.

I chose to work with Neil, to create some social media images to promote my Personal Training Business.

He took some fantastic shots and provided edits too, which have looked great on my pages. Friendly, supportive, and happy to help, Neil puts you at ease when he is behind the camera. He is full of ideas and has tons of experience and knowledge to help create the best shots for your business.

If you are looking for a great photographer for any occasion, Neil is the man to go to.

Highly recommended.
