I undertake commercial photoshoots for design and content agencies and for all types of businesses and corporations. These photoshoots range from simple headshots, to editorial portraits suitable for the media. From images that tell the story of your business through to national campaigns. I take care to listen and understand your needs so that I can carefully plan to achieve the best results and capture the right ‘feel’.
When commissioned by design and advertising agencies or when working directly with organisations, I take great care to understand my clients needs so that I can achieve the best results that work for them. Bringing creativity, enthusiasm and technical knowledge to every photoshoot, I work hard to turn my clients ideas into an inspiring visual reality. I enjoy the challenge of reflecting a companies core values through photography.
Great imagery can really make a difference in how the general public perceives a business, which in turn affects how they interact with it. Working with design agencies or with smaller businesses directly, I pride myself on really listening to my clients, asking the right questions and working collaboratively to produce imagery that successfully reflects the company’s ethos and gets their intended message across.
Working together we can build a visual identity for your business to use across marketing and advertising campaigns, social media and websites. I am always happy to meet up and discuss your ideas. Please take a look at the examples of campaigns I’ve already shot below.
