About Us

Explosures, the photographer’s gallery, was established in 2001 in the beautiful seaside town of Salcombe. Over the last 16 years the company has grown and evolved and it is now well known for its family portraiture, wedding photography, commercial work, marine photography and events coverage.


Our fun Family Portraits are taken at a location of your choice. There is No sitting charge and No obligation to buy.  Our prices start at £8 and we offer prints, framed print and photographs on canvas too.  Appointments can be booked over the phone or by popping into our gallery.  Some of our customers say a trip to Salcombe just wouldn’t be the same without their yearly exposures with Explosures.  If you are having a big family reunion, party or celebration why not book us to record that special occasion.


Our Wedding Photography is informal and flexible.  We will design packages to suit your needs, no matter how big or small, or whatever your budget. Our friendly approach and unobtrusive manner will assist in the smooth running and enjoyment of your wedding day whilst recording memorable pictures for you to enjoy for years to come.  We are experienced in providing a professional and friendly service to ensure that we assist in the smooth running and enjoyment of your day while also capturing relaxed, classic pictures and fun moments.


Our Commercial Photography can provide shots to advertise your business, a portrait for an internal magazine, images to illustrate a recent success, pictures of interiors and exteriors of residential, business and holiday premises.  If you are looking to promote your business please contact us to discuss your requirements.  We have worked with many local and national businesses including shops, restaurants, pubs, hotels, holiday home owners, sailing and powerboat schools.


Our Marine Photography team have an extensive knowledge of sailing and general watersports.  We specialise in images on the water of you in dinghies, racing and cruising yachts, powerboats, wakeboarding and water- skiing and we are available for individual and corporate shoots.  Our marine photographer will be afloat this summer to capture the fun and excitement in the Salcombe Harbour this year. We can even follow you out of the harbour as you get ready for the open sea.  If you see the camera pointed at you, don’t forget to give us a smile and wave…..View your photographs the following day in our gallery or contact us with details of your boat, whereabouts and date and we will send you proofs of your photographs to choose from.


Our Shop and Gallery has an ever changing display of images: local scenes, aerial views of Salcombe and exhibitions from local photographers.
