Hello! My name is Shannon, welcome to Thornton Photography. I am a photographer based in Franklin, Auckland, New Zealand. Thornton Photography started back in 2016 after a close family friend that loved photography passed away. In a way to honour them I picked up my camera and walked over the family farm taking photos and fell in love with it. Since then I have had an ever growing passion for photography and have only fallen more in love with it. I enjoy that you are able to connect with new people and are able to capture a moment in time that could hold a special memory for someone. I understand the bond we have with our animals and that they are more than just animals, they are our family, our best friends. My photography is designed to capture the bond between you and your animal, to tell your story. I have photographed at many events such as Equidays, Versatile Ranch Horse, Cowboy Mounted Shooting NZ Club Days and local A&P Shows to name a few. If you have an animal that is not a horse or a dog don’t worry! if you send me an email (listed below) and tell me what your animal is I would be more than happy to discuss possible options with you. I am also available for commercial shoots so if you are interested please contact me. I look forward to hearing from you and being a part of your memory making with your animals.


For Inquiries please contact Shannon Thornton. When inquiring please state what package you would like and your location. If you are inquiring about an animal that is not horses or dogs please state what animal it is and what location you would like and I will be in contact to discuss our options.
