Why impersonal stock photography won't cut it anymore

If a picture is worth a thousand words, make sure those 'words' are uniquely yours

If you've ever felt drawn to the 'About us' page of a website, or you've been intrigued about the personalities behind a product or service, you will know how important it is to give your clients the real story behind your enterprise. The most successful contemporary websites feature specially commissioned photography which reflects the true drive and passion behind the business, replacing the bland, anonymous and overly-polished stock photos of the past.

I can work with you to produce stunning images that will tell your story authentically and actively engage your clients. I pride myself in working creatively in all environments - anything from a stunning penthouse boardroom to a tiny mechanic's workshop. I'll capture dynamic portraits of you and your team in your place of work, doing what you do best. I photograph all the little details and processes which make your business unique and shape these individual elements into a compelling visual story.

"Claire's photos have helped enormously in attracting new clients to my business - customers have mentioned that they 'felt like they knew and trusted me' by looking at my website." - Suzanne Redford, Equine Dental Technician


What to Expect

Before The Shoot:

I will arrange a meeting with you to fully plan your shoot. I will listen carefully to the story behind your enterprise and ask you what messages you would like to convey to your clients. Together we will develop the concept for the shoot and I will guide you through styling and location options. If you require a multi-location shoot (see packages below) I will co-ordinate this and make sure appropriate permissions have been granted.

The Shoot:

The images I capture on the day of the shoot will be a combination of what we have planned together and more spontaneous shots that will help to shape your story. You will be able to relax and enjoy the experience, knowing all the details have been carefully thought out in advance. A typical shoot includes in-situ portraits, editorial-style shots of your working processes, your business environment and products, and some 'lifestyle' images to bring out the personality of the business.

After The Shoot:

I will fully edit your photographs and provide them to you in an online viewing gallery. All the images you require will then be delivered to you in high-resolution and also in the dimensions and formats you require for your chosen platforms, (eg, Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram, etc).


Single Location

• 2 hour shoot
• Shot at your business premises



• 4 hour shoot

Bespoke Shoot:

If you have special requirements for your shoot (eg, longer hours or more locations), or you have a particular concept or vision you would like to discuss, please do get in touch and I'll be happy to provide some input and a quotation.
