what we do

We specialise in portraiture of all types, for a wide range of purposes including corporate headshots and publicity, actor/dancer headshots, dating profile images and family/private portraiture.

William works from his Central London studio in Charing Cross, close to Trafalgar Square, Leicester Square and Covent Garden. When weather permits, he often make use of the parks and open spaces nearby, such as the South Bank and St James’s park.

We offer a range of services to suite all requirements and budgets, including both studio and location photo shoots, photo retouching, and photo printing.

For all our shoots, our customers will receive all the digital images that we take during the shoot (less any test shots), in both high-resolution jpg format and optionally lower resolution (suitable for social media etc). All the images are fully colour corrected as standard. We also supply up to three retouched images at no additional cost.

We use high-end Hasselblad, Nikon, Profoto and Ellinchrom equipment to give the best possible results.
