James Gifford-Mead Photography

Photographer in London
Photographer in London James has been a London Corporate Photographer for the last four years and he specialises in providing strong imagery for his clients marketing needs or new portraits for their online profile presence. Through his previous experience he can either offer simple and clean headshots or a more natural and relaxed portrait in the office environment. When he is not shooting corporate portraits he is photographing events and conferences for different types of businesses that need strong pictures to aid their marketing campaigns or social media presence.

Working as a corporate photographer in London, James does the majority of his shoots on location so he would travel to wherever your office is situated or where your event location is. He works to a hourly, half day or full day rates, but the longer the photography session, the more cost effective it becomes. James has a portable studio that he can set up within your meeting room or in a general space on your office floor. There is no extra charge for any travel expenses for London photography shoots.

read moreJames perfectly captured my wedding in July 2017. He is amazing at getting natural candid shots and just understanding the environment and getting the most out us. He was engaging leading up to the wedding and we felt absolutely confident he would take amazing shots of our wedding. He even scoped out various locations for shots prior to the wedding - really went above and beyond. I would highly recommend James for your wedding or any event. His professional and friendly manner made him a welcome addition to our wedding day.

read moreJames was great and very professional! It was easy communication and he understood the brief very well. We got the images before 9am the next day, so can't fault anything! The photos looked excellent! Thank you very much! :)

read moreOur organization used James Gifford-Mead for a group photo of nearly 150 delegates (outside in London in the hotel courtyard) in October. He managed to get a great group shot for us in less than 15 minutes. With over 100 people in the shot, he managed it very well. We also used him for candid meeting photos and a large evening social event as well. We appreciated his professionalism, attention to detail and his responsiveness to our requests.

read moreJames has been fantastic in capturing special moments at our event. I am not the biggest fan of cameras, but James managed to make me feel comfortable and easy around the camera. We had some amazing shots and I am forever grateful!
Marco Wehe
read moreJames is a superb photographer and he was the perfect choice for our event. James managed our crowds very well when needed but also melted into our event and captured the most amazing moments that will stay with us for a lifetime. We would recommend James to anyone who is serious about gaining a skillfully crafted album of photographs.

read moreJames is very easy to work with, he takes the time to understand exactly what it is that we are trying to achieve from a wide range of often potentially tricky product photography shoots and is able to interpret our concepts to equal or exceed our highest expectations.
James is very efficient and well prepared, he is able to provide finished images in an unusually short time, we can wholeheartedly recommend him.

read moreJames is an outstandingly approachable and hard-working photographer with a terrific eye. He's produced hundreds of great images for the Henley Literary Festival over the past few years in fact, they keep getting better. Despite the fact we have him trudging across Henley for long days on end (45 miles' worth of walking in just one week this year) he is consistently pleasant, professional and at ease with all manner of people, from the young to the old to the downright famous. We highly recommended James and hope to work alongside him for the foreseeable future.

read moreJames has worked with me as a free-lance photographer and his work and ethics have always been excellent. James goes above and beyond what he is asked to do. He is an incredibly talented photographer and a lovely person too. James is able to gain respect and trust from the people he is working naturally and quickly. I have sub-contracted work to James on previous occasions and I will continue to do so as he makes it working with him incredibly easy.

If you are considering hiring James, I have no doubt that he will be excellent for you.

Yas Daudjee
read moreI have been an admirer of James Gifford-Mead's photography for a number of years. He has a truly remarkable eye, as his body of work is testament to. I have had the privilege of seeing him photograph on a number of occasions, and his method can be described as patient, studied and unobtrusive, in addition to his professional and dedicated approach. He has a particular talent for portraiture, both in capturing the essence of his subjects, but also in his timing of those fleeting moments of heightened emotion that elevate his work above the mainstream.
Rosie Nutt
read moreEnergetic, enthusiastic and extremely professional photographer. James covered an event for us and not only were the photos great but his presence was so subtle, he captured the essence and success of the party in every shot. We will definitely use him again.
Lydia Johnson
read moreJames was just fantastic. From the very outset he was very responsive and flexible, adapting to our complicated shot-list and last minute changes. On the night he was punctual, very friendly and professional and was able to manage the >500 people we had at the event in order to capture the diversity of shots we needed.

We were delighted with the final photographs, which came to us the day after the event. We can't wait to continue working with him at our future events!

read moreSuch a pleasure working with James. He was extremely professional, delivered on time and was very responsive through the process. I was initially a bit conscious about the shoot but James was friendly and put me at ease right at the beginning and was very chatty through the process, making it a very easy experience. The pictures are very high quality and I would highly recommend James.

Thank You!
We recently contracted James to photograph a Jewellery Career Fair that we held here in London. James did a superb job in capturing special moments between guest speakers and professionals from the jewellery industry. He really listened to the brief and provided great service both before and after the event. His photos were stunning and we will definitely be using him again for future events. A big thanks from all of us at GIA, James!
