About us

Why Yarm Studio?

Yarm Studio is an independent family run business established by husband and wife team Michael and Emma Cartwright. We’ve been trading since 2014 from our custom built, dedicated studio space on Yarm High Street.

Michael is a professional photographer, having trained at CCAD and Teesside Uni, who has years of experience behind the camera. Emma takes care of the administration and image processing side of the business and adds a ladies touch to our offering.

We are proud to have worked with countless local people to capture their unique story in our photographs, it is truly an honour to play a part in our clients lives. The service at Yarm Studio is highly personal, fun and creative resulting in bespoke artwork for your family.

Unlike many of our competitors, we don’t simply hand you a series of digital files. We create professional prints, frames and wall art that you will treasure for a lifetime.

Our location is perfect for enjoying a day out with the family, with beautiful riverside walks, many restaurants and fabulous service and retail businesses right on our doorstep.

Many of our clients return time and time again, safe in the knowledge that they will benefit from a professional, friendly service and a quality end result.

"We have been visiting Michael and his team at Yarm Studio for over 7 years. On our first visit, which we arranged after receiving a gift voucher, I was somewhat apprehensive about having our newborn daughter’s photograph taken. Michael put us at ease immediately, with his genuine welcoming nature, and helped to create some magical memories which we will keep forever." - Lauren Pierce
