Portrait Photography

Telling your story and capturing exceptional moments is my goal when working on a portrait photography shoot. Meeting your requirements is important to me and is why I offer a range of options. Whether you want a natural light sitting in a favourite location, a studio shoot, or a more convenient mobile studio shoot in your home, I will try to accommodate your wishes as a professional photographer.

We'll have a preliminary telephone consultation to discuss your individual requirements before taking a booking. This helps me get a good idea on the type of images you want. During the shoot, I work with my clients providing suggestions and offering direction for poses. You'll be gently guided to ensure that the end results are photos to be proud of. I shoot a mixture of formal (directed poses) and candid (ad hoc in the moment) shots. Sittings are tailored to your particular needs.

Family Photography

Similar to my solo portrait photography, a preliminary consultation is carried out to understand your requirements. I strive to create a positive rapport with your family (especially children) to allow them to become comfortable before we start taking photographs. Mostly I shoot candid pictures to keep everyone engaged. (I’m happy to employ bribes where required to capture formal poses if you have specific ideas in mind!)

Generally, I recommend natural light photography for large groups, but a range of studio lighting options are available too. Shooting in a place special to you all is also suggested.  I will happily discuss any specific requirements or ideas you may have ahead of a booking. I understand that your family dynamic will factor into the best approach to take.

Whilst there can be additional challenges to working with larger groups, it’s one I relish being a people person. Past clients have appreciated the difference between a quick snap on a camera phone and a quality professional photograph to capture their special family moments.

Making sure that everyone feels safe and able to be their normal day-to-day self is my main focus to ensure that I am able to capture the best moments and expressions for you. Having a fun experience leads to great photographs after all!

Corporate Photography

I enjoy working in a corporate setting helping my clients achieve bespoke, professional results to promote their business. I've experience with profile shots for websites, coverage of corporate events for promotional material or photography of products and facilities. A clear understanding of a client's requirements is a top priority before I conduct any corporate photography. I'm also happy to work to tight deadlines and all my corporate material is supplied with full usage rights in digital format (low and high resolutions).

Peace of mind is provided, along with suitable cover for any unexpected incidents by Pete Lock Photography's insurance. I also carry out a health and safety assessment as part of the initital review to minimise the chances of such mishaps.

Why settle for generic stock images when you can tailor visual content to your vision and brand.
