Thanks for visiting -- please do ask if I can be of any help, or even if you just wanted to say hello. The picture of me shows one of the more arduous aspects of corporate event photography (at a 20/20 cricket match) Good quality photography isn't a luxury ...it's often the first thing that a prospective client or customer notices about your business. Keep an eye out for bad photos and think if you'd want them promoting -your- business? I'm a commercial and landscape photographer. My photos help you to get your messages across, and I really enjoy taking them too :-) Since I believe that anyone can take better photos I'm happy to teach people to improve their own property photography and product photography. Latest Northlight Images website news at Twitter The picture of the new theatre in Leicester below will be one of the first images you see getting off a train at Leicester - it was chosen to help promote my city as somewhere that's got a lot of new development in progress.

I've had a number of careers, some of which still provide a useful if erratic income. These include being a provider of original thinking services to companies (most recently Microsoft ;-) ). I also used to be ... a geologist, underwater engineer, human factors researcher and electronics designer. I still tinker with electronics a bit, and have some nifty designs for multi-stage water/air powered rockets (lots of lemonade bottles). One thing - I don't work on Thursdays. It's when I have my piano lessons. What's the point of running your own business, working all kinds of hours, if you can't just say "No, sorry, I'm busy that day"...

The advantages, such as 'getting it right first time' can quickly translate into a quicker turnaround -- and increased profitability.

In fact I enjoy doing most sorts of photography -- but I do -not- do weddings! (or studio portrait work). I produce large fine art prints for commercial and residential use, available in a wide range of sizes and materials. Give me a call if you need a professional photographer for web or print use -- or just give me a call anyway, I'm always happy to chat to fellow Ecademists!

It usually only takes me a few minutes, so I'm happy to do it for people (for free, just ask! :-) ) Can I help? -- Presentations and talks I regularly give (technical and non-technical) presentations and lectures about aspects of photography and digital imaging for companies, clubs and business networking events. I've even managed to get a whole room full of estate agents to take better pictures of houses. I'm always happy to chat about photo matters with people, so do feel free to ask! Come to think of it, I'm happy to chat about most things :-) If you want a speaker for an Ecademy or other business networking meeting, I'm happy to come along -- the 15 minute guide to taking better holiday photos can't guarantee you won't cut heads off, but at least the rest of the picture may be more interesting... Myself, holding one of my large prints. Click on the image to enlarge in a new window. Help please... I'd welcome contacts with anyone you think might make use of my commercial photographic skills.
