About us

Welcome to Shropshire and Beyond, a contemporary collection of UK stock images and fine art photography by father-and-son team Mike and John Hayward.

As our name suggests, we are based in the beautiful county of Shropshire but our ever-expanding library of photographs covers other parts of Britain as well.

All our images are for sale as photographic prints in a range of sizes, and are available in either matt or glossy format.

We also offer digital files for purchase and immediate download by editorial and commercial clients including advertising and design agencies, newspapers and magazines.

All images are copyrighted and are not to be used without permission.

Shropshire and Beyond is affiliated to the Mike Hayward Collection of classic British motor sport images.


 Meet the team - John, left, and Mike, pictured on Diamond Rock, the Stiperstones, Shropshire.


We are delighted to say that our new book, A Year in Shropshire, has now gone to press.

It runs to 192 pages and will by published by Merlin Unwin Books in September, price £20.

The book showcases the county in more than 160 images, moving from spring to winter and covering every corner of Shropshire.

The cover shows Clun Castle on a frosty autumn morning - the result of another early start for me.

There have been lots of heated discussions between Mike and myself about picture choices, but we're both very happy and can't wait to get our hands on a copy!
