Adrian Turpin Commercial Photographer Kendal

Adrian is an outstanding professional freelance commercial photographer Lake District Cumbria based. We cover Lancaster, Manchester, Liverpool, Glasgow and the North West.

We create strong, memorable images that you really want. We talk to you and find out what you actually need - content, colour, style - how and where the images are going to be used and what you hope to achieve with them.

Backed by a wealth of experience of both creative lighting and the technical aspects of high quality picture production, we produce only the best.

Lighting and Image Creation

Understanding the difference between simply capturing an image of something that is already there using the natural or available light, and actually creating an image whereby every element in the frame is carefully controlled in terms of placement, colour, composition and most crucially lighting is the key to successful commercial photography.

We specialise very much in the latter, creating images that you will be absolutely delighted with, proud of, and that will work hard and successfully to promote your company, service or product. Images that will show your company off in a positive and professional light. Adrian's background is in television, theatre, film, broadcast, studio & location production lighting design which lends itself perfectly to many different styles of image production and sets us well apart from the vast majority of other photographers.

We control light and shade in the frame, adding sunlight, moonlight or candlelight as the subject matter requires. We control colour, flesh tones and the overall balance of the objects within the frame. We take light away where it is not required. This is a specialised craft and our clients really appreciate the extra glitz and sheen that our images have.

Location / Studio

We are able to shoot any kind of commercial location or studio work for you. Depending on the subject matter and the nature of your requirements the studio can sometimes be a better option and sometimes a location shoot is either necessary or preferable. Food and drink is often best shot at the location whether it be a restaurant, commercial kitchen or other culinary outlet. Products are often best shot in the studio where there is a greater degree of control. Fashion can sometimes be studio based and sometimes require a certain backdrop which by its nature needs to be a location. Location work includes both interior as well as exterior work.

Please contact us for a CD of portfolio images or have a look at our picture galleries and our client list and testimonials. When viewing our picture galleries, please bear in mind that virtually all the images you will see are 'lit'. That means they do not just rely on natural or available light. They are all lit as they would be for film or television to vastly enhance and control the subject matter.
