Natural, engaging event photography

For press releases & marketing

Freelance event photographer in Leeds

Most briefs for event photography are urgent. Really urgent. Often with only hours to spare, a call comes in to cover a launch or open day that’s just too precious a marketing opportunity to miss on camera.

So I’m used to picking up a brief at short-notice and delivering clean and purposeful event photography – especially useful if you’re a PR agency or event organiser scouring the web for a reliable freelance photographer, one who knows Leeds and the West Yorkshire area.

Your search for dependable event photography is over

I work autonomously and share photos fast: often the same day. So you can promote your cause faster in press releases and online.

After cutting my teeth at events for Yorkshire Sculpture Park and Yorkshire Air Ambulance, I now specialise in freelance event and PR photography for:


Open days and site tours


Creative workshops and courses


Conferences and AGMs


Festivals and gigs


Launch events for products, premises  and store openings


VIP & celebrity visits

What you gain when you hire me as your photographer

Clients describe my photographic style as reportage: think humans in their natural habitats, unposed and engaged in activity. It’s unobtrusive and delivers lively, truthful photos. Like photojournalism (only less high-brow and more affordable).

That’s because the best photos happen when your subjects are engaged. To date, I’ve photographed people baking buns, carving sculptures, spinning pizza, building schools and more. If your event combines people and activity, you too can benefit from my experienced eye that spots a valuable photo opportunity as it unfolds.

A typical photo shoot (on location in Leeds) includes:
