Professional location photographer
Location photographer, corporate and editorial photography shot on location for branding, marketing and report. Location photography and people photography by Stephen Shepherd specialist in editorial location photography for annual report, web and press.
I am a professional location photographer working for commercial corporate and educational clients on location across the world. I work in industrial environments, construction sites, the office and sites anywhere creative photography is required. Working with real people in real life scenarios my background in national press and magazine photography means I can offer my clients the flexibility of being able to work independently or to a tight creative brief.
My creative, editorial style has proven very popular with corporate and business clients for whom I often work on projects that involve reportage, action and portrait photography, creating stand alone imagery and portfolios of work for prospectuses, brochures, web and marketing collateral.
In the old days when a sheet of film was presented for editing the art director or editor would pore over the sheet with a magnifying glass, a chinagraph pencil and a sheet of sticky red dots.
A set of pictures would be edited out from the shoot, the pencil used to select the first edit, suggest crops etc. planning a picture for repro'. Further to this a final shot might be required.
This would be the one shot, a single image that stood out from the rest making it the RED DOT image, the best of the best and of course it got a red sticker on the film sheet.
The pictures on this page are my RED DOT images, the best shots from commissioned photography, from my personal projects and on going day to day creative and artistic work.
