Find a Photographer in Upminster

A historic town surrounded by Green Belt land, a photographer in Upminster can easily believe themselves to be deep in the Essex countryside, yet the town is so close to London it�s even got an Underground station.

The name of Upminster was first recorded in 1062, so predates the Domesday Book. The town boasts a number of listed buildings, some of which � such as the Tithe Barn Museum and Upminster Windmill � are visitor attractions. Both make wonderful backdrops for the corporate or family photographer in Upminster, who wants to take more informal portrait shots. Here at Ross Holding Photography, we specialise in both studio and outdoor location shoots, with Upminster being a particularly photogenic location. A number of country houses date back to the 15th century, with many buildings added in the17th and 18th century by the rich London merchants who moved into the area. Properties of note include Upminster Hall, today the clubhouse of Upminster Golf Club, which lies close to 13th century Upminster Bridge. Offering superb opportunities for the corporate photographer, Upminster Court is another historic building which has been given a new purpose, this time as the corporate headquarters of the Uniserve Group.

We at Ross Holding Photography are a family run firm and we always advise people to book early if they require a wedding photographer, especially if Upminster parish church is the chosen venue. The beautiful Grade I listed church of St Laurence is the original 11th century minster from which the town gets its name, and extremely popular with couples wanting a traditional ceremony. A piece of trivia � the speed of sound was first accurately calculated from the tower by a vicar, using a telescope and a shot gun!
