Introducing Bex Maini - Sussex Brand Photography Expert

Bex is an excitable soul, obsessed with colour, creativity, books and movies. She’s always trying to surreptitiously sneak more rainbows into her home and wardrobe.


Like a rainbow, Bex has a whole spectrum of layers, she's a twin mum, photographer, magazine editor, photography instructor & mentor, speaker, brand photography expert and she’s also a dentist 2 days a week!

People describe her work as vibrant, joyful and rich, capturing the true essence of her subjects. She is passionate about sharing her knowledge and skills to empower fellow photographers and business owners.


Bex grew up in Scotland but moved to the south coast of England when she was 6 months pregnant with twins in 2014. They’re now 8 and keep life interesting and VERY busy but they’re pretty photogenic so it’s all good ;)

In fact, the twins were the turning point for Bex who had always been adamant about NOT being a people photographer.

Having her own little people pivoted her interests from landscape and nature photography (which is still there) to photographing her babies which eventually led to starting a family & brand photography business which has since evolved into specialising in storytelling for brands.
