About Us

welcome to bigcheese photography (uk)

With 30+ years of experience & knowledge to fall back on, we're sure that we can bring: colour, life, drama, humour & a sprinkling of creativity to whatever photographic project you throw at us. We're equally happy working to a brief or will take over the creative & art direction if required.

Commercial photography is about getting results for clients, often it isn't easy or cheap but a skilled, experienced photographer maximises your investment whether it's in products, services or people.

Over the years we've won many awards including:
"British Institute of Professional Photography (BIPP) NW Photographer of the Year" and
"British Institute of Professional Photography (BIPP) National Industrial Photographer of the Year"

Qualifications include:
Fellowship, the highest level within the BIPP,
Full, accredited membership of the Association of Photographers (AoP) &
Qualified European Photographer (QEP) with the Federation Of European Photographers (FEP)

We've served on the BIPP National Admissions & Qualifications Panel, have given dozens of demonstrations & presentations around the UK and have been asked to judge many Regional & National Print Awards.

However, although receiving qualifications & awards is great, we only ever judge ourselves on what we do for our clients & we're always ready for a challenge, whether creative or logistical!
