Meet the team....

Sculpher Photography is owned by husband and wife John and Rita Sculpher. It has been a family-run business for 40 years and is proud to have captured thousands of families in images that are cherished and proudly displayed in their homes.

The business is now one of the most estabished studios in the south-west

of England.



John has gone from setting up his studio in

Ide village, originally working freelance for national newspapers and magazines, claiming many front cover pictures. He was on the first Concorde

flight to land in Exeter and has even captured the Queen pulling a pint in the same city!

John is a member of the British Institute of Professional Photography and the Master Photography Association.




Rita joined the team over 20 years ago and the couple's children (15 & 20 years old) also take part in the running of the buisness.

Rita is expert at directing shoots and encourages confidence, smiles and laughter - a real gift! She thoroughly enjoys her role and always looks forward to seeing the finished result.




A new photographer, Luke Joyce,

joined the team in 2014.


Luke loves all apects of photography and has his own school and nursery photography business. He also captures images of forgotten locations and structures.


He also works alongside some of the UK's best entertainers - capturing some really crazy stuff... With lots of experience working with young children, he has developed a laid-back and super-fun style that is bound to make the kids giggle!
