About Otterway Photography

Hello and welcome to Otterway Photography, my name is Rachel Joy Otterway! 


“People are my motivation, in all of their weird and wonderful variety. I love being able to takes photos that tell the stories of people’s emotions and special moments, so that those precious memories will always be there to revisit and enjoy.”

I was only four years old when Dad showed me how to use his camera to take a photo, and I still have my first photo of the sky that I took that day! Ever since then I’ve not stopped taking photos, and nothing excites me more than taking amazing photos that bring joy – although getting a new lens or camera comes close!

My family have always encouraged my passion for photography, and I’m proud to use our Otterway family name for my business 



I feel very lucky and grateful that a lifelong hobby and passion has also become my career, and strive to put that passion into all of my work. My degree in Design helped inspire my creative imagination and taught me lots about composition and visual presentation, together with the project management skills I need to run a photography business.
