Gran Canaria portrait photography


Are you coming to Gran Canaria and looking for more than just snapshots of your family?  Do you want a permanent, quality reminder of your time in Gran Canaria?

First of all congratulations for choosing Gran Canaria as a destination; it’s one of the most photogenic places in Europe and the fabulous weather makes taking good photos a joy. For  happy, smiling portraits and memorable shoots, this is the place!

We are Lex and Alex, a photography team with over 30 years of experience taking photos in Gran Canaria. Don’t worry though, we don’t charge double for our services. Our photography style is informal and spontaneous: We know that the best photos come when everybody is enjoying themselves.

We provide a portrait or reportage service designed to fit in with your holidays. We travel to your resort and whisk you away to one of the island’s many photogenic spots, or meet you at the location of your choosing. We also accompany you on excursions and hikes anywhere in Gran Canaria and produce a photo report covering the whole day. This service is fantastic for active families and for corporate trips.


The Top Photo Locations in Gran Canaria

These are the most popular locations chosen by our clients for photo shoots:

  • The Maspalomas dunes
  • Mogán harbour
  • Vegueta Old Town in Las Palmas
  • The Meloneras Promenade
  • The Cumbres (a drive, but worthwhile for the backdrops)
  • Palm Oases
  • Secret deserted beaches

Gran Canaria wedding photographers

Are you planning to get married in Gran Canaria? Good choice! The island is a fantastic wedding venue and the hotels here go out of their way to make your special day run seamlessly. For a warm, blue sky wedding there is nowhere better.

It’s the weather that makes us love taking wedding photographs in Gran Canaria. While most photographers have to worry about rainy days and dark evenings we have the perfect conditions here in Gran Canaria.

We are Lex Thoonen and Alex Bramwell, a photography team based in Gran Canaria. The advantage of having two photographers on your big day is that you get two different visions of the most important moments of your day. Don’t worry though, we don’t charge double for our services.

Our photography style is informal and spontaneous: We aim to capture the memorable moments that everyone loves and remembers. We also know the single most important thing about wedding photography: Make sure the bride looks great.

We encourage all our couples to get outdoors and have some photos taken in the sunshine. A sunset shoot in the Maspalomas dunes or in one of the many secret spots we know about are guaranteed to make your wedding album unforgettable.

If you are getting married in Gran Canaria then contact us well in advance about your wedding photography. The wedding season in Gran Canaria gets busy!

We also do “trash the dress shoots” and romantic honeymoon shoots, and have been known to hop over to the other Canary Islands for weddings.

Gran Canaria assignment photography by Canary Content


We are available for photography assignments and shoots all over the Canary Islands. As long-term residents we know all the islands intimately and have a wide range of contacts and a large database of models on each island.

In 2012/2013 we visited all of the Canary Islands for an epic, 45-shoot assignment for the Canary Islands Tourist Board. We delivered almost 1000 quality photos which are now being used to promote the islands all over Europe. For a selection of these images, click here.

We shoot with pro-Canon equipment and L-Glass and have recently added Gopros and a helicopter to our equipment bag. We produce quality video as well as still images.

Recently we've covered carnivals, sports events, hiking holidays and even photographed Gran Canaria's impressive container port.

Our photos have been published in dozens of travel and lifestyle magazines and newspaper travel sections. Our latest credits include a surfing feature in the Air Berlin in-flight magazine, Lonely Planet guide books, the Guardian newspaper and the front cover of TTG travel magazine.

As well as photographs we also produce pro-quality videos of the Canary Islands and articles to accompany our images (Alex was a writer and an editor in a former life in Britain). If you are looking for a one-stop shop for Canary Island content then we are your photographers!
