Mike Payne

Firstly, let me introduce myself, I’m Mike Payne.  Welcome to my website.

I’m an award winning wedding and portrait photographer based in Rochford, Essex.  I also have a love of digital art, which we offer as part of our creative portraits.

Photography has been a passion of mine for too many years to mention.  It enables me to engage with people on a very personal level, whether capturing and recording a bride and grooms beautiful wedding day or shooting in the studio, to build a models portfolio, to spending time photographing your family and the love you all share. I’m there to tell your story and I do this by getting to know you.

I’m a qualified member of the The Master Photographers Association (MPA), as I believe it’s important to interact with fellow photographers, understand the latest trends and business principles.  I have achieved my Licentiate qualification, reinforcing my commitment to training and being the best.

The organisation also provides me a personal challenge as I get to compete against the best photographers in the country.


This picture is an example of several images that have won awards within the MPA.
