Commercial Photography

Good professional photos are one of the best investments you can make in your business.

Your online presence is your shop window.  Potential customers will check you out online before deciding whether to work with you or with one of your competitors.

For many of my clients, one of their stand out features is themselves, the business owner. Capturing photographs of yourself in action is hard so that’s where I come in!

You may initially feel uneasy about getting in front of the camera but I hope that my informal approach will soon have you relaxed and showcasing your true self.

It’s no longer about staid corporate headshots.  You want your business images to match your brand values and show potential clients what makes your business special.

Meeting other small business owners in and around Durham is a definite perk of my job and I love hearing all about your story so my business photography is tailored exactly to your needs.  


I provide commercial photography for a wide range of North East based businesses. I specialise in photographing clubs and classes, whether they be sporting, educational or creative but also enjoy working with online and office based businesses and creatives.

Ahead of a shoot I’ll liaise with you about the kind of images you need and particularly what they will be used for.

You may need photos for your website, social media, print marketing or for display.

Branding photography is all about taking photographs of you, the business owner, and your staff in action to help your clients get a feel for what it will be like to work with you.

I’d also encourage you to be photographed outside of work too, maybe showing what you like to do to unwind. Building trust and rapport with your potential clients will give you the edge over your competitors.

I enjoy getting creative with product photography and can also create bespoke background images for you to add content to.

Following the shoot, I’ll edit the images to ensure they’re looking their best, crop them to the dimensions you require and then deliver the images to you.


All shoots include

  • Pre shoot consultation (via Zoom, or in person if you’re nearby)
  • Full shoot planning
  • Travel time of around an hour’s round trip. I’m happy to travel further afield, though there will be some additional cost for this.
  • A similar amount of editing time as shooting time (I’m all about attention to detail)
  • Digital images – delivered as both high resolution and web optimised versions
  • Full usage rights to the images

First hour – £120, subsequent hours £80 each
Half day (up to 4 hours) – £350
Full day (up to 7 hours) – £550

Discounted rates offered for regular bookings to keep your visual content up to date.


Mary captures every detail

Mary is a pleasure to work with.  She is professional, yet so relaxed and friendly.

Mary captures every detail and puts a huge amount of passion in her work.  However, you are totally unaware of the camera as she is so subtle in capturing her pictures.

I would highly recommend Mary to anyone looking for a photographer.
