On-location head shots are preferred in my book. Like these taken of Christopher Nieper at a well known Alfreton, Derbyshire business, David Nieper. Which designs and produces women's clothing. I was hired as a head shot photographer by Insider Media to capture photos of Mr. Nieper where the garments are sewn. Showing the environment just outside of his office but with him as the focal point for an article that was later published about the garment industry here in Great Britain. To give the editors a bit of choice, we made sure to take a small variety of images at one of the many sewing machines. Along with Christopher holding some of the dresses, not shown below. You can find those in the editorial. Personally, my favourite must be the last one of the gallery. What are your thoughts? Click on each one to see the whole image.

Product photographers need a whole gamut of skills. Especially when it comes to reflective surface likes jewellery. My work with Etsy listings for DAM Jewellery happens to be one of those cases where being a well versed product photographer comes in handy. I photograph vintage jewellery for this Chesterfield, Derbyshire based seller on a regular basis. So we've come to a consistent style of nice airy whites and soft colours to show off these pieces. From simple flat lays for photographing brooches and earrings. To the use of small busts and props for necklaces and rings. Working with DAM Jewellery has always been a pleasure and I look forward to being their go-to product photographer here in Derbyshire. To hire me for your e-commerce product listings, call me on 07710 271457. In the meantime, take a peek at the product gallery below.
Derby, Nottingham, Sheffield, Leicester and Birmingham are just some of the locations I travel to when working with restaurants as a food photographer. So it's tough when people ask me what area I cover. When it comes to food photography, I prefer to work on location. I can't stand being in the same four walls day in and day out. Photographing food for restaurants gives me the variety I crave.
From pubs, cafes, eclectic eateries, to dessert parlours and vegan take aways, every restaurant can benefit from professional food photography. Show off your best dishes and the ones that set you apart from your competition. Call 07710 271457 to discuss how hiring me as your food photographer will up your game.
Being a freelance photographer my role often involves photographing events that companies would like images of for social media, website and other marketing purposes. The National Lottery Community Fund works with so many charities and organisations across the UK, and to show customers who play the lottery where the funds go, they require photos like the ones I've taken below. It's important to shoot in a documentary style and show the natural interactions between the people involved.
The first even below was at the YMCA My Space in Rotherham. Which provides activities and services for the area's youth. Another was with Volunteer It Yourself at the Guisborough Rugby Club. VIY works with young people who volunteer for DIY projects in their community to learn valuable skills they can use for future employment. Working as a freelance commercial photographer for TNLC has been a great experience and I can't wait to work with them again soon.
Professional photography will set an estate agency apart from the competition. It also portrays a more accurate representation of the home for sale. Bringing out the best aspects of each room. Not to mention showing off the exterior photos of the house or property and adding a blue sky if needed. Let's face it, English weather is unpredictable and even sunny days can end up grey during the scheduled photoshoot appointment.
Working with RF&O Sales, I've had the pleasure of photographing some of their listings in the Swanwick and surround areas such as Ripley and Matlock. Below I'll be posting a small selection of photos I've worked with RF&O on. Go take a peek.
Unit Sheffield is a North American style restaurant with giant burgers and chocolate covered desserts. Or puddings as we'd say here in England. They even sell Mexican sodas as you'll see in the photographs below.
The goal of the food photography shoot, was to photograph each item in a variety of ways for use on social media. Such as instagram. A restaurant may want to feature a speciality burger for instance, many times. But doesn't want to bore potential clients with the same photograph. Therefore, having a handful of images of that speciality burger is essential. Speaking of burgers, check out the images below.
Part of being a commercial photographer involves capturing photos for use on company websites. Which is why Ashmere Care Homes contacted me. They were completely revamping their website and needed not just images of the care homes themselves, but also photos of the Ashmere team such as, headshots of home management. Along with some of the residents taking part in the activities and even shots of the food offered on their menus. After working with Ashmere to photograph their property and staff in Codnor, Ripley, West Hallam, Ilkeston and Matlock; I was offered another opportunity to photograph their awards ceremony. Keep your eyes peeled for that blog in the future. For now, have a look at a small selection of images below.
Meal plans are all the rage right now and the best businesses will stand out when potential customers visit their website. The meals themselves need to be tasty and in this case, healthy. But the photographs are the first impression. Which is why Scott and Dave decided to hire a professional food photographer to show off their healthy meal plans.
Located just out of Chesterfield in Derbyshire, My Fit Foods prep delicious meals and delivers them to their customers homes or work place. After an over the phone consultation we had a clear vision for food photographs that would best highlight their brand. My role at the food photographer was to show how the meals would be packaged, each dish plated, and some of the My Fit Foods team. We also needed to work on images that would show the brand overall. Especially for items such as the homepage of the website. To see some of the final outcome you can visit their website or view some of my favourite shots below.

Nottingham area based caterers Posh Nosh East Midlands contacted me thanks to a referral from another client. Interested in some images to compliment their upcoming website design. This time going for a darker colour palette. But still want the colours of their delicious food to speak for itself. I was more than happier to accommodate. Especially when I tasted some of their apple and honey sausage rolls. They are truly scrumptious.
Since corporate catering services are a large part of their offerings, Rhona and Rob created a list of tasty canapes, salads, sandwiches, and cakes along with many other items for me to photograph. We focused on individual food items along with collections of offerings. Such as afternoon tea, meat boards and cheese boards. But enough from me, go see some of the images below. I highly recommend Posh Nosh East Midlands catering services. Give them a ring for your next corporate event.
Derbyshire based Cosmikandi Jewellery is an Etsy seller that creates one of a kind pieces. To show off the quality of each handmade jewellery piece such as bracelets, necklaces and brooches we worked together to create some of the images seen below.

After which, Cosmikandi Jewellery began selling pieces at Urban Flamingo in Chesterfield, Derbyshire. The owner of Cosmikandi, Dolores, also ships to the USA for those of you interested in her stunning items created with only quality beads.
