EDITORIAL & CAMPAIGN SHOOTS
Thinking about your brand’s next lookbook, editorial or campaign shoot? Want some help putting a concept together or booking models? Perhaps it’s your first photoshoot and you don’t know where to start, or you’re completely overwhelmed by it all and you just want someone else to take this off your hands? You’re in the right place; come on in and make yourself comfy…
LET’S WORK TOGETHER TO CREATE SOMETHING
My role is much more than a photographer; I’m here to help make shooting your next campaign shoot as painless as possible. I know the blood, sweat and tears that you’ve shed to make sure every intricate detail of your collection is perfect. The countless hours you’ve spent designing, pattern cutting, refining. That handful of half-finished samples that didn’t quite make it into the collection. After months of solid hard work, late nights and early mornings; channelling all your energy into this creation, you need to find someone who will do your brand proud. Do you proud. That’s the point where I come in: I want to highlight all those delicate touches you’ve agonised over that make your work truly special. I want the images to be a continuation of your brand; to ignite a spark in people when they delve into your lookbook or devour your campaign. Let’s work together to photograph your collection and show it in the best – and most beautiful – light.
From recommending tried and tested professional stylists to offering you a peek at my location lust-list, we’ll curate a plan in such detail that you’ll feel assured you’re in safe hands. I’m able to offer creative direction as well as full project management on your brand shoot if required, and I have access to renowned and established hair and makeup artists; ones I have built up a professional level of trust with, who consistently bring their A-game, offering a staggeringly high quality of work. I’ve also got the contacts to source a wide range of models. All this helps take the pressure off you, giving you the opportunity to relax and enjoy the experience.
On a practical level, my portable and lightweight lighting kit makes it super easy to shoot anywhere; really, anywhere. An art deco bar, a specialist photographic studio kitted out with sets, the library at Jesus College in Oxford University, a boutique hotel, a penthouse suite filled with 20 people… I’ve done it, and can handle it. My years of experience photographing anywhere and everywhere means I’m ready for anything; nothing phases me, and yet every time I shoot I feel the same ignition of passion and excitement I did the first time I took a photograph.

Tigz work is just so breathtaking. I have been following her work for years and the way she plays with light is deeply captivating and so polished looking too, she creates such beautiful stories in her work. Recently, we worked together on my No Grit, No Pearl collection. I have wanted her to shoot this collection for while and was so glad that she was equally as passionate about it as me, as I knew her attention to detail and eye for light and texture would be perfect to highlight my pearl collection. She is such a joy to work with, both before, during and after the process as she made the whole thing so easy. I would highly recommend Tigz, the calibre of her work just speaks for itself!
I had never been involved in a photo shoot before so this was a new experience for me. It was so glamorous and a lot of fun. It was so interesting though to see what goes on behind the scenes at a shoot. I was fascinated by the way the models just knew instinctively what to do and the incredible relationship between [Tigz] and the models and how [they] interact. And how [Tigz knows] that rain is coming in 12 minutes and will stop in 22 minutes still blows my mind!
Working with Tigz truly takes all of the hassle out of location shooting. She seems to know all the best locations & will listen carefully about the type of images you want to achieve. Often we find with shoots that we have to manage every aspect from hair to posing, but every collaboration with Tigz has resulted in beautiful effortless images – with our only ‘job’ being to send the dresses! Tigz and Ella are such a creative yet productive team, they will capture your idea whilst ensuring the garments are crease-less & promoting them to the best of their ability. They will capture every small detail & leave you with campaign shoots you’ll be incredibly proud of. We honestly couldn’t recommend Tigz enough.
As for retouching, did you know I’m an ambassador for both Adobe and Wacom? That’s right, having spent most of the past decade delivering lectures, workshops, tutorials and live streams for other photographers on how to edit their photos and speed up their post-photoshoot workflows, my industry accreditations make me your go-to woman for high-end, realistic retouching. No plastic-looking skin over here! I’ll get as much right as possible in camera, then colour match any garments as necessary and give the images a quick polish before they are ready to be released. Your entire photographic needs met in one simple package.
It is my utmost pleasure to have worked with and for some incredible brands from around the world. In recent years, I’ve worked on commercial & editorial photography commissions for clients including Ayten Gasson, Emiah Couture, Glamour Bunny, Haringtons Hairdressing, Kiss Me Deadly, Scantilly for Curvy Kate, The Pretty Dress Company, Top Vintage Boutique, The Underpinnings Museum, What Katie Did and Zoe Vine to name but a few.

WE'RE ON A REALLY TIGHT DEADLINE, CAN YOU HELP?
DO YOU HAVE YOUR OWN STUDIO?
As most of my clients prefer to shoot on location these days, I no longer have a fixed photographic studio, choosing instead to convert a little room in my home into an editing suite! However, I can recommend plenty of locations across the UK that we can use for your shoot.
HOW MUCH DO YOU CHARGE?
Every client has a completely unique set of requirements for their shoot, from concept to retouching requirements and usage rights. This is why all of my commercial shoots are based on a bespoke pricing structure. If you’d like to discuss your ideas and get a quote, pop me an email via the contact page.
HOW FAR WILL YOU TRAVEL? DO YOU TRAVEL INTERNATIONALLY?
I love to travel! I’m based 25 minutes outside Kings Cross in Hertfordshire and regularly travel into London, but the sky is the limit! I have a UK passport and can travel and work anywhere, providing the necessary paperwork and visas are organised. Taxi, take me to the airport please!
(Travel expenses will apply)
WHAT DOES YOUR RETOUCHING INVOLVE?
On both my private and commercial photoshoots, I always try to get as much as I can spot on in-camera, so when it comes to retouching we can keep the Photoshopping as minimal as possible. Poses will be chosen to accentuate both your product and the model, and I’ll use a range of tools throughout the shoot to make sure all images are white-balanced and colour-corrected to provide accurate images for your online customers.
After you’ve chosen your favourite images, they’ll be put through my signature style of high-end retouching, which includes exposure correction, cropping, straightening, noise reduction, sharpening, a touch of skin retouching and garment tweaking where required. And, if there’s anything else you’d like to request, I’ll absolutely do my best to accommodate!
DO YOU ALSO OFFER PERSONAL BRANDING PHOTOGRAPHY
Absolutely! You can find a wealth of information on my Personal Branding shoots here.
DO YOU OFFER PRODUCT CUT OUTS/PACKSHOTS?
At this time, I am not offering product cut outs or packshots.
