Celebrity

I am renowned for taking the pictures of many famous and celebrated faces.

Often commissioned by national newspapers to provide striking portrait or fashion photography for Sunday supplement magazines, I am also a regular photographer for leading broadcasting companies to help them craft promotional features.

From my base in Huddersfield, I am perfectly located for shoots with actors in soap operas set in the north. As well as Coronation Street, Emmerdale and Hollyoaks, the burgeoning TV industry in that part of the country has seen opportunities grow. A long list of previous assignments show my strong ties to Leeds, Manchester and London.

I also have experience working on location in Sheffield, York, Liverpool, Hull, Birmingham, Preston and Warrington, where I am at ease collaborating with teams of talented makeup artists and stylists.

“Photographing a celebrity for a magazine feature always makes a refreshing change, because I’m able to push both the pose and styling so much more. I can also use the chosen location in a different way, and as a result the photography becomes more fashion-orientated.”

“I’ve been commissioning Claire for the last ten years and she is always a pleasure to deal with. She listens to what you want, asks the right questions, and just gets on with it without a fuss. It really is a pleasure to work with her and I always know she is going to send me a really pretty shoot with loads of options to choose from.”

“I always know that whenever I commission Claire the shoot is in safe hands.  She gives 100% and I always get top quality images, with lots of variety and different crops and poses.   I know I’ll get the pictures I want when Claire shoots for me.  And I am never disappointed!”

“Claire Wood has been a regular contributor to Fabulous Magazine since its launch. Claire’s work is beautifully composed and she always produces characterful and sympathetic portraits which are ideal for our magazine. I would have no hesitation in commissioning her however difficult and demanding the assignment”.

“Claire Wood has been a great contact to have. We often have interview and people pieces that need photographing across the UK, and Claire has been our go-to for northern shoots. She is always a pleasure to work with and produces a fantastic quality of photos.”

“First of all, I’ve got to say the quality of Claire’s work is brilliant. We commission her for every edition of Business Agenda, sometimes 2 or 3 shoots an issue, and she is our first port of call for business portraits. She follows a brief to the tee, and always gets the best out of her subjects whether she has them for an hour or just 10 mins. Her use of light and colour and her choice of composition are consistently excellent.”
