Creating eye-catching corporate, Business to Business & commercial photographs from apparently mundane subject matter in all manner of office and industrial settings is something which I really thrive on. Seeing something that others wouldn’t is a skill I have developed over many years working in this industry. Physically creating an image seen in the minds’ eye is not only immensely rewarding and satisfying but is completely surpassed by the delighted reaction of my clients.

As a Reading based Corporate and Commercial Photographer, I have over 25 years’ experience working in the industry who has produced eye-catching and effective photographs for companies and businesses such as the US Based logistics company, UniGroup; Carillion Communications; Fisher Investments International, WJ UK; WJ Groundwater and SkyEx, Skanska, Ford New Holland, Legal & General and many more businesses both large and small. Over the years, I have acquired the ability to communicate with people at all levels to create the results which my clients are delighted with.

As part of my corporate work, I also shoot portraits, head and shoulders, team and people photographs. For more information and sample photography, please click here.
Based in the Royal County of Berkshire, I am very conveniently located within 90 minutes of locations across the South East of England; the London region as well as Oxfordshire, South Midlands, Hampshire and Surrey.

Over many years I have amassed considerable experience in photographing some of the most prestigious interior and exterior commercial and residential property projects. Projects such as 1 Canada Place in Canary Wharf and the Queen Elizabeth Bridge at Dartford which crosses the River Thames.
When I am commissioned to photograph interior and exterior residential and commercial properties, I always look for exciting visual approaches and angles when photographing buildings regardless of whether they are in the centre of a city or a rural village. I always strive to provide my clients with as many and as rich a choice of images as possible which is key to helping them achieve their marketing and promotional aims.

My photographic approach in creating exciting interior photography is a belief that lighting is crucial if an image is to be eye-catching and believable. The majority of interiors nearly always require supplementary lighting. However, I believe that this should be discreet, enhancing and supplementing what already exists. Too much additional lighting can kill the mood of a room and can also make it look unreal. Of course there are times when strong light can create a dramatic effect and used sparingly if extra dramatic effect helps strengthen your promotional message. I work tirelessly to make sure that I use the most empathetic approach to how I photograph the interior of your property ensuring that it is made to look the most attractive and desirable as possible. Based close to Reading, I am ideally situated to work throughout the South East of England;
the London region as well as Oxfordshire, Hampshire and Surrey.

Team Photography

HEADSHOT-IMAGE

Every small to medium sized business can really benefit from great, high quality team photographs. They are a really effective way of presenting your talent to existing and potential customers. It is well known that people prefer to do business with companies who they like and trust. Putting faces to names is a really effective way to build long lasting relationship with business partners. After all, people are the business and a great team shot is the first step.

During my long career working in corporate photography, I have worked with people from all backgrounds and professions, the boards of large global companies to small single person businesses. The goal is always the same: create a business-like photograph that conveys a friendly, approachable and above all, likeable appearance. At the same also maintaining an air of professionalism and expertise. I sincerely believe a good corporate team or individual head shot portrait says a lot about somebody. I will therefore always tailor my corporate head shot photography style to suit his or her profession. For example, a CEO of a large FTSE 100 company will want to appear more professional, whilst a Personal Trainer or Counsellor may want to appear warmer and more approachable. My aim is always to put the people I am photographing at ease, make them relaxed and enjoy being photographed.

Based close to Reading, Oxford and London, as Head Shot, Portrait and Event Photographers, we are ideally located to undertake work throughout the south east of England, the south Midlands, and Hampshire.

As specialist portrait and head shot photographers I can photograph your staff either in studio or in your business premises.

Best of all, you will find my prices are very reasonable indeed. It’s what I do.
