Adrian Turpin Food and Drink Photographer Kendal

Adrian is an outstanding professional freelance commercial photographer Lake District Cumbria based. We cover Lancaster, Manchester, Liverpool 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. Photographing food to a high standard is a fiddly and time consuming process that requires great patience. The key to success is in the planning and preparation. Attention to detail as well as a degree of imagination and inventiveness is often required too.

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.

There are many people doing the former. 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.
