What's Happening?

Business Description

Why I do it: I want to help people and companies be more successful. My clients tell me that my photographs help them increase sales, make them feel more confident when pitching for work, and enhance perception of quality.

Services provided: Commercial photography - premises, projects, installations. Personal photography - portraiture, personal portfolios, family groups, onsite or in my studio. Retouching and restoration. Advice and guidance on visual presentation.

Skills: Adobe Camera Raw, Photoshop CC

Achievements: Awarded the Licentiate distinction (LRPS) from the Royal Photographic Society of Great Britain, July 2019. My photography has featured in BBC and other TV programmes, been included in National Trust websites and publications and used by clients for national advertising.

A study was made in the USA to see if there are common factors that explain large successful companies. The researcher found that one of the characteristics of successful large companies is that when they were small, they thought and acted as if they were large companies. Specifically, these companies insisted on high quality presentation, especially photography. Many companies remain small by choice but that doesn’t mean they should think differently.

My Recommendations

You are generous with your knowledge and skills, great advice offered
Thank you, Hedley

from Tracey Miles

Hedley took some new headshots for me last week and the end results are superb, even if I say so myself. He was patient with my shots and the pictures are now being used for all my social media work. I am looking forward to using Hedley for some additional portrait work to go on my personal website. Thank you Hedley - Great Job!
