“You don’t take a photograph, you make it.”

welcome to
james turner photography

I have always loved to take photographs and have always enjoyed sitting with grandparents or loved ones and going through family albums ever since I can recall. Each photograph freezing time in an instance and holding a story to be told for eternity.

My working life has mostly been in the television and film industry. I have edited Documentaries and Oscar winning films for National Geographic (Free Solo), as well as a variety of programmes and films for Channel 5 and FOX (everything from Pepper Pig to Big Brother and The Walking Dead). I have also been fortunate enough to work for the late director/producer Tony Scott (Top Gun).

About Me Professional Photographer James Turner

There has always been a camera close by as I was growing up. But it was about early 2005 when a professional camera finally arrived in my hands. From that moment on I found myself running around photographing whatever I could. Family members, pets, even flowers and buildings.

I totally fell in love with the art behind each image I captured. Discovering the significance of finding the right lighting as well as the correct pose or position. I love learning new things and photography was a science to me. The ‘Exposure Triangle’, ‘The Rule of Thirds’ and the ‘Inverse Square Law’ all making up the big picture (no pun intended).

After studying everything I could from books and online resources, I realised the value of ‘one to one’ sessions and training courses with world renowned professional photographers. This truly ignited my appetite for the craft. So much so that I try to keep my training UpToDate by attending classes by a variety of instructors a few times each year.

About Me Professional Photographer James Turner

Becoming a professional photographer also meant becoming part of a professional photography body. So, I am thrilled to say I am a dedicated member of the SWPP (Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers), as well as the Guild of Photographers. Both are international recognised, and both constantly push me to produce a high standard of product as well as my principles for the business.

So why should you hire me as your photographer? There are too many reasons to fit here. But let me start with the fact that you will be working with a true professional who genuinely loves the art that he creates. I do not want people to miss out on creating amazing memories in a fun and relaxed way that will become treasured heirlooms and live on forever.

    An absolute fab photographer: James did our wedding and he is AMAZING at what he does! James is very organised and creative, and pre-plans photo shoots which is so handy on the day. We didn’t need to think about guest being in the pictures as he did all that for us. I have some wonderful pictures which I have framed.

He has a wonderful ability to put everyone at ease. I would highly recommend him for any form of work, personal or commercial.
