Preston Based Portrait, Commercial and Schools Photographer
Home Page Portrait Gallery Schools Gallery Commercial Gallery Contact Us

Hi, my name is Simon, and I am a professional portrait, commercial and schools photographer based in Preston, Lancashire.

I’ve been taking pictures for a long time. In fact, I grew up in a family where my father’s obsession with photography and cine-film took him round the world. I was lucky enough to inherit one of his film cameras some years later, and my passion for photography began.


Times and techniques have moved on, as have the requirements of today's modern customer. I exclusively shoot using the latest digital photography equipment and use professional, modern lighting to achieve contemporary pictures you'll be proud to hang in your home.

Photo shoots in your home

For your convenience, I am a completely mobile photographer and if you wish I can set-up a mobile studio at your home, or other location.

I am based in Preston, Lancashire and because I am a completely mobile photographer, I am happy to travel to all the outskirts of Preston, but also cover much of Lancashire as well.

There is no need for you to venture out to a studio somewhere, and there is absolutely no time limit on our photo shoot. I like to take my time and in a relaxed environment I shoot up to 300 images for you to choose from.

I also make a point of working round your schedule. There is no point in me working office hours if you work in an office. Similarly, if I'm taking pictures of children or babies, it's pointless arranging an evening photo shoot when they will be tired and maybe ready for bed. You tell me your schedule, not the other way round!

I am fully CRB checked and certified, and upon request I am happy to produce my certificate and CRB clearance details.


I like to offer my clients great value for money, and always have special offers that you can take advantage of.
