I am a commercial, editorial corporate photographer with over 25 years of experience. I offer my clients the flexibility of being able to work independently or to a tight creative brief as well as working on projects and production with my clients to develop their ideas and help to fulfill their vision. From location shoots to studio style portraiture, panoramic photography and 360 VR I bring creativity to any project. With many years of experience in Corporate photographer location, marketing and editorial photography I create striking images that tell a story.

My creative, editorial style has proven very popular with corporate and business clients for whom I often work on projects that involve reportage, location and portrait photography – creating stand alone imagery and portfolios of work for prospectuses, brochures, web and marketing collateral.

I am highly skilled at working on location with real people from all walks of life and in day-to-day situations and working environments. Often working with tight deadlines I produce high quality photography for corporate, editorial and commercial clients.

Whether working on commissions in a real life, reportage style, using available light to create atmospheric photography, capturing the imagery as the action unfolds or on fully produced projects, I create striking images that can tell a story with the minimum of disruption and direction.

My way of working enables me to get the best out of any subject creating unique photography to fulfil any brief, with or without art direction, building a body of work as well as individual “iconic” images.

Pre visualization is the greatest skill a photographer can have, it is this skill that makes the difference between getting the picture or not. I understand how to “read” a scene. I know how to be in the right place at exactly the right time and how to get “the” shot. I will often return to a location just when the light is “right”, or when the action is at its optimum point. I can shoot to the space reserved on a page and pick the perfect spot for a portrait – pre visualization is second nature to me.

My versatility and experience allows me to react quickly to photographic requests and my flexibility enables me to work efficiently, proactively and creatively in a broad range of styles as priorities change. I manage commissioned projects of any size from large location shoots to high-pressure shoots with quick turnaround requirements.

My client’s benefit from my experience and they know that they can communicate, describe and illustrate their requirements to me and that their photographic commission will be fulfilled.

Key areas of experience

I undertake photographic commissions for a broad range of clients, in many sectors of the business.

Corporate photographer location – I am commissioned to photograph all aspects of the business world from conferences and events, photographing staff and real people in their working environment to working in offices, factories and on location. I am also regularly commissioned for director portraits.

My photography is used by clients in their prospectuses and brochures on their web sites and in marketing collateral. My national press experience transfers very well to the business world where companies require creative reportage and B2B publishers frequently require my photographic skills.

Marketing – Marketing campaigns usually require more organisation and production than other commissions, the requirement however is the same – to produce natural, real world, creative photography. This style of working has been used in campaigns for CNBC television, fully produced shoots for The Alliance & Leicester, Thames water and Orange as well as in many brochures & reports.

National Press & magazines – For over 20 years I have undertaken editorial commissions for The Guardian, The Daily Telegraph, The Observer etc. national & international magazines and periodicals. I have worked on travel, features, news and motoring stories as well as shooting celebrity portraits, landscapes and reportage work. This experience allows me to undertake any shoot at short notice, with tight deadlines or in difficult circumstances and still to be able to provide imagery immediately for my clients.

Construction & Industrial – I am specialist at working on location. I am regularly commissioned to work on construction and industrial projects photographing plant & machinery, staff & workers. Commissions have been undertaken for London Tubelines, Thames Water, Airbus, Carillion etc. and I have recently shot a 25-day countrywide commission for The Construction Industry Training Board.

Portraiture – From royalty, MP’s, authors and film stars to company directors, students and the man on the street I have worked on portrait commissions for many clients. Whether 5 minutes in a hotel room with a musician, shooting an MD portrait at corporate offices or on I have the ability to put people at their ease always getting the best from the subject.

Education – I have vast experience working in the educational sector including marketing shoots for Ofqual, The DfE and The SFA to special reports for the national press. I work directly for schools, colleges and Universities as well as for corporate clients who operate training programmes for their staff.

Drawing on my ability to shoot around changing scenes and situations I use my editorial skills coupled with location lighting to create photography suitable for prospectuses, web sites and marketing material. Recent commissions include – Portraits of Sir David Bell, The University of Reading – Marketing photography for UCAS – Prospectus photography for the National Star College etc.
