Oliver is great, there’s no other way to put it. Always on time and goes the extra mile at every opportunity. His editing skills are fantastic and his work consistently gets me instructions when I show potential clients our previous sales and the marketing material he has produced for my company.

Always a great professional service offered by Oliver. He captured detailed images of our showroom apartments and communal areas which had a massive impact on the marketing and generated lots of interest from potential residents. He comes highly recommended and look forward to working with him again in the future on other schemes.

I found the quality of Oliver's work to be extremely good. He has an excellent eye for detail and knows how a room should be presented to show it off best. I found him to be very pleasant to deal with, no faff and turned round the photos quickly. I've just booked him again for another of my properties. Would highly recommend.

I have worked with Oliver closely over the past 12 months and he has become our go-to guy when it comes to photographing our property portfolio. We started out as a new company and had issues with a couple of photographers before coming across Oliver. Since his first job, he has photographed over a dozen of our properties. The images are always of a brilliant quality which we use across our adverts, website and in brochures. Oliver not only delivers with quality photos but always is on time for appointments, is not afraid to be hands on when needed and does not rush. Cannot be recommended enough!

Photography Services Offered

Interior photography

High-quality images of your kitchen form the cornerstone of the service we offer – this includes not only comprehensive shots that outline the space’s layout and design but also artistic lifestyle close-ups. These close-ups focus on key features such as elegant kitchen taps, countertops, appliances, and decorative elements to make your kitchen space welcoming and vibrant. Kitchens, with their complex details and varying light sources, can present a challenge to photograph. I often use a wide-angle lens to capture the full essence of the kitchen, ensuring that every detail is visible. Lighting in kitchens can be particularly challenging, mixing LED, halogen, tungsten, and natural daylight, which complicates colour balancing. Therefore, the editing process is thorough, involving colour correction, reflection and glare removal on glossy surfaces, and cleaning up any imperfections. The final photos are versatile and suitable for use on websites and in marketing materials.

Video walkthroughs

Part of our offering includes creating video tours or walkthroughs of the kitchen. These virtual tours give viewers a comprehensive sense of the space’s design and functionality without needing to be there in person. For kitchens, where showcasing layout and appliance functionality is crucial, smooth panning and detailed shots provide a thorough overview.

3D architectural rendering

We are also capable of producing 3D renders of kitchens, whether you’re still in the planning phase or looking to visualise a redesign. These renders can be static images or dynamic, three-dimensional videos that offer a detailed virtual representation of the space, showcasing how it would look upon completion.

Drone photography

While not typically necessary for kitchen shoots, drone photography can be an invaluable addition to larger-scale projects. If your kitchen project is part of a bigger development, aerial photography can capture the entire property from a unique perspective, highlighting the project in its entirety. Drone shots offer a grand, encompassing view that ground-level photography cannot match, providing a luxurious and comprehensive look at the development and its setting.

Virtual home staging

For kitchens that are complete but unfurnished, our virtual home staging service can digitally insert fixtures, furniture, and decorative items into the space. This digital enhancement, using advanced 3D modelling software, allows us to add elements like dining tables, chairs, lighting fixtures, and decor to bring the kitchen to life. This service is ideal for visualising the full potential of the space, making it appear more inviting and lived-in, which can be particularly useful for marketing and promotional purposes.

So why choose me? I can quickly establish a strong working relationship, experience working closely with interior designers, developers and stylists. I have excellent knowledge of the best professional image editing software, and I have a fast turnaround – delivering professional images back to you within 48 hours.

Paying for professional photography may seem like a relatively big investment, but because you only pay for the service once and get to use the photos forever on your listing, you will see increased bookings and revenue from your property for many years, making photography a thoroughly worthwhile investment.

Your images will be professionally edited using the best editing software to ensure high standards and delivered back to you on time.

Why use a professional kitchen photographer?

Utilising the latest in photography equipment and techniques, a professional can elevate your photos, ensuring they present your project in the best possible light.

Attention to Detail

A professional photographer dedicates time to fully grasp your vision for the project, guaranteeing that the final images embody your brand and style. This meticulous attention to detail and depth of experience is what sets a professional apart from amateur photographers, who may not capture the nuanced aspects of your project.

Knowledge of Lighting and Composition

Expertise in lighting and composition is critical for creating compelling images, and a professional photographer possesses the skills to use these elements to their advantage. Whether it’s manipulating natural light or composing a shot that highlights the unique features of your kitchen, a professional knows how to make your space look inviting and vibrant in photographs.

Consistent Results

Choosing a professional photographer means you can expect reliability and consistency in the quality of the images produced. With their vast experience in photographing kitchens and other interior spaces, professionals deliver exceptional results every time, capturing the beauty and functionality of your designs.

Cost-Effective

While hiring a professional photographer may initially seem costly, it is an investment that pays off in the long run. Professionals work efficiently to produce stunning images in a shorter timeframe than an amateur might, providing excellent value for money. The superior quality of the images means they can be used across various platforms indefinitely, enhancing your marketing efforts and brand image.

Showcase Your Work

Employing a professional kitchen photographer allows you to highlight your work in the most flattering way. High-quality, professional photos not only attract more clients but also enhance your reputation and credibility in the industry.

For professionals in design, contracting, or homeowners looking to display their projects, hiring a professional kitchen photographer is a strategic choice. Professional photographs not only help in attracting more customers but also play a significant role in boosting your profile and credibility in the market.

What happens on the day of the photoshoot?

On the day, I always aim to arrive early, preferably in the morning, when the natural light is optimal for photography. I take the necessary time to set up my equipment, making sure everything is perfectly in place and ready for the shoot. Once the technical preparations are complete, my focus shifts to capturing beautiful images that will highlight your project in its best light.

The process begins with a discussion with the client to assess the kitchen space and decide on the types of shots required. The size and layout of the kitchen might necessitate wide shots to convey the overall design, or close-ups that focus on specific details or features. Additionally, if there are any special requirements, like virtual staging or video walkthroughs, I ensure these are planned for well in advance.

With a clear understanding of the required shots, shooting commences. I typically start with wide-angle shots to capture the essence of the kitchen, allowing viewers to appreciate the design and functionality of the space. Then, as per the client’s needs, I proceed to capture close-up shots of distinctive elements such as bespoke cabinetry, high-end appliances, or handcrafted tiles.

If a video tour or walkthrough has been requested, I also undertake this, providing a virtual tour of the kitchen. This offers an immersive experience, allowing viewers to grasp the design and ambiance of the space without needing to be there in person.

Kitchen photography is an excellent method to showcase the elegance and intricacy of a space, highlighting the meticulous work involved in its creation. Through careful planning and a keen eye for detail, I produce striking imagery that distinguishes your project from the competition.

Our clients say

I recently started working with Oliver after a long and drawn-out search for a new photographer. I need someone who can not only take great room shots but is also able to provide imaginative, evocative lifestyle photography and understands the requirements of twilight imagery. Oliver has a wide range of skills and can cope with all the usual complexities of interior jobs, and his laid-back yet professional manner has allowed me to develop my own styling and direction so that together we have created some of the best interior images I’ve ever used in over ten years of home sales. He listens well to feedback, suggests improvements on the next shoot and is a joy to work with.
