Enjoy Shoreham-by-Sea is a recently launched community website to help support local businesses, promote events and welcome visitors to the ever growing coastal town of Sussex. We are lucky to be involved in a brand new photography competition where the winners will receive their photograph framed by us and an entry into the 2022 Calendar 'Best of Enjoy Shoreham-by-Sea'.
To coincide with the local Christmas Market, the Shoreham Independent Traders hosted a Christmas Treasure Hunt which involved 12 local traders. We were lucky enough to be able to participate in a brand new event, which hopefully will return for Christmas 2021.
Whilst the event was originally going to continue until the middle of January, we only managed up to Christmas Eve, before we were put into lockdown again. However, despite all this, it was a great opportunity to get involved in a local event and try and add some Christmas cheer where we could.
Matt Whistler, one of our talented artists at Photal Photography, has recently had an article published about himself in Four Walls. Four Walls is an international art and framing magazine and a great opportunity for any artist or framer wanting to showcase their work. Matt has been a great and engaging artist to work with, and is always open to new ideas to promote his work.
You can read the full article on pages 22 and 23.
We have launched our latest venture at Photal Photography with Autentico Paint. We are the official stockists of the area with a selection of paints and waxes in a variety of colours and sizes available at the gallery. Come and visit, where we can help you with your decorating needs.
We are no longer stockists of Autentico paint, but simply pro-users. This means we can still use their products on any projects/framing we are working on, but we can no longer sell it on its own. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause to anyone.
We were number 7 on the trail this year, with many artists joining us for the event.
Artist's Who Joined Photal Photography:
Carol Parker, Christopher West, Colin Watson, Deborah Flemming, George Gillman, Manic Minotaur, Midge's Mum, Paul Stapleton, Robert Huxley and Susan Taylor.
We extended our opening hours and opened on Sundays (11:00 to 16:00) during the trail, to allow as many people the opportunity to get round the trial.
We were at the Wednesday Market at The Shoreham Centre, just before Christmas. It was the first time at the market, and it was a great opportunity to talk to the community, and let people know about us, who were unfamiliar with our company. It was also a interesting to see what other people in Shoreham (or surrounding areas) have to offer.
We are currently in the process of updating our Google account and on the Friday 21st October, we will be getting a visit from Cube Online to complete a 360° tour of the gallery. This will allow people to visit the gallery and see what we have on offer.
The tour will be available on our website, Facebook page and Google page from the end of November.
The tour is now live! Available to view on our contact page.
We were lucky enough to take part in the Adur Art Trail and Festival again this year, with some new artists joining our gallery for the festival. It's always an exciting event, as new people venture through our doors and discover the wonders of Photal Photography and art around Shoreham-by-Sea.

Photal Photography was at The Hope and Glory participating in a craft fair with Crafty Kitten. It was an exciting opportunity to promote our business from outside of Shoreham and an ideal venue to promote our light boxes. Due to poor lighting, it really made them stand out.
Photal Photography had had the privilege recently to photograph the opening of the new Shoreham Community Centre. An exciting day with performances and demonstrations from clubs who will be using the facilities for classes with the general public.
We were also blessed with the appearance of Carol Cleveland, who was granted with the honour of raising the flag to officially declare the centre open for business.
