Experience the ultimate In Photography with The Picture book studio

About Us


Jonny Regan Big Brother 3, PictureBook Studio Managing Director, professional photographer, digital artist

‘If a picture paints a thousand words, then we write a story, and that story is all about you......’

Over the last 10 years, picturebook studio owner Jonny Regan has worked both in front of and behind the camera. As an actor and presenter, his love of the creative arts led him back to his training in photography. Having a wealth of knowledge within the media industry and armed with his artistic creative talents, he decided to set up this unique photography experience to create affordable, high end photographic works of art for his clients.

Originally specialising in actors and presenters headshots, he found himself gradually heading towards all aspects of lifestyle photography and portraiture. Due to the sheer demand that quickly arose for his services, he decided to set up the picturebook studio ltd and share his creative talents with everyone.
