Classic people and events photography

Nigel has been photographing people and the events that surround them for over 20 years, capturing them in his own inimitable documentary style, usually with them engaged in work, sport or celebration. Essentially, he engages with his subjects in their environment, capturing them on their patch, doing whatever it is that they do from day to day, thus ensuring that they feel relaxed and in control.

As a result, his people images constitute informal documentary portraiture. It is a style of photography that is of immense value not only in magazines and books, but also in the workplace, for clients who want the work they and their staff do to be captured in a naturalistic, unstaged and informal manner. It’s a style of photography that really ‘seizes the moment’, rather than requiring huge amounts of time and preparation to stage.

To see examples of his people photography feel free to view the image gallery.

Nigel can create a tailor-made project just for your needs. Get in touch.
