About Us

Memory Gate was formed in January 2009 by photographers Michael Shilling and Marcin Mieczkowski. The partnership of both individuals’ companies was born out of the desire to offer their clients the best possible product in terms of photography and design. Marcin’s pedigree as a photoshop wizard is perfectly coupled with Michael’s extensive portrait experience. This is how the Memory Gate tagline “A Fusion of Photography and Design” was arrived at. Both individuals bring over 15 years of experience working in the photography industry and are active members of the Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers.

Michael Shilling LSWPP

Michael has been working as a photographer for the last ten years. In that time he has shot over 100,000 peoples’ portraits and worked in four different continents. In 2001 Michael graduated with a degree in photography from Manchester Metropolitan University.

“I believe the diversity of my photographic experience, which ranges from shooting wildlife and glaciers in Alaska to newborn babies and weddings, is what I bring to every one of our photography sessions.
“I would class myself as a portrait photographer first. The style which we have developed at Memory Gate centers around creating truly personal portraits; shot in amazing locations.”
