About Me – Well, what do you want to know???

JLP PhotographyI have been a professional fashion, corporate and commercial photographer for over 12 years, and even though I love my ‘big’ camera, I also love the instant effect that my smartphone camera can deliver.

I run Instagram and Smartphone photography workshops alongside my main photography business as I believe you shouldn’t have to have an expensive camera to get good photos.  We live in an ever-changing, visual world, and good imagery is essential in getting yourself noticed.

On the photography side, I photograph corporatecommercialteenagersSpotlight and model portfolios, and these can take place either in a studio or out on location.

Shoots start at £150, and include 3 high resolution, fully edited digital images.  Small business packages are also available.  Spotlight shoots are priced at £95 (on presentation of a valid Equity card), or £150 without.  Hair and make up can also be booked for an additional cost.

My Instagram and Smartphone photography workshops are run either as 1:1s, group, in-house or industry specific webinars on Instagram and Smartphone photography workshops showing you how to get the most out of this powerful marketing tool.

We cover the different types of posts on Instagram, your content, the mystical world of hashtags, your branding, planning and how to run a successful campaign on Instagram.  We then go over how to use your Smartphone camera to get eye-catching, high quality images, and then edit them on your phone so you can post directly to your social media, and all without having to worry about paying for licences and usage from external photo libraries.

I also run workshops solely on how to get the best out of your smartphone camera, and these are held locally in Hertfordshire, as well as being promoted in The Shard and other locations around London.

You have to believe in what you’re doing otherwise what’s the point?” – Rankin
