About Me


Hi! I'm Paula Mottram

Welcome to my online home! 

I am a Mancunian, forest lover, tea drinker (oh and white wine!)  jigsaw fanatic, who loves out of the ordinary and pushing the boundaries. Whether you are shy or outrageously crazy, I’ve got you covered! I love capturing the true essence of people, and the special moments in their lives, through photography.

Why Choose Me?

PWM Photography was established in 2011, inspired by my amazing artistic Grandfather and my camera-loving Mother. They instilled in me the importance of creating lasting memories. “One day you will realise how important that photo really is.”

I believe that every moment is a story waiting to be told. My approach is all about capturing the essence of your personality and genuine emotions. Whether it’s a wedding, a family portrait, or a personal milestone, my friendly and professional manner ensures that you feel comfortable and confident in front of the camera.

My Philosophy

My journalistic style fits in with whatever you need. Want to jump in a waterfall? Let’s go! Shy and feel uncomfortable? I’ve got your back. 

Photography is more than just taking pictures; it’s about creating a visual narrative that shows who you really are, the people you love and moments that will be cherished. 

Check out my Instagram and Facebook for a wider selection of my work and feel free to reach out for more information or to customise packages to fit your needs. I am passionate about creating images that tell a story and preserve memories for a lifetime.
