JohnStead Photography

This site covers my commercial photography portfolio from luxury Hotels to Industrial Products, high end Cosmetic Products to Residential Interiors. For photography of social events, weddings and portraits, please see my alternative site at

I take personal responsibility for every commission, from preliminary arrangements through the actual shoot to post-processing and delivery of the finished work to my customer.

My equipment includes high end Canon, Elinchrom and Bowens photographic equipment. I can source any specialist equipment as required and at short notice. I am able to travel worldwide, having already undertaken commercial work in the United Kingdom, France, Mauritius and the Maldives. Lead times from first approach to the shoot can be as short as a few days. Post-processing time scales are normally measured in days, and will not extend to weeks.

My standard delivery format for the finished work is a DVD of high-quality images (Tiff or JPEG). Further post-processing to meet special requirements, can be provided at extra cost. For customers preferring a more complete solution, I can also offer a high-quality picture-book format, or mounted, glazed and framed work.

All images are archived by me in their raw data (as photographed) format and retained indefinitely, allowing subsequent re-processing should a different presentation of results be required at a later date. I normally retain copyright of all images, but I license a customer to use any image supplied by me for any lawful purpose, without further payment.

I serve on the committee of London Independent Photography, an organisation representing and promoting over 450 London based photographers. My activities are fully insured by Photoguard, and business accounts are submitted annually to HM Inland Revenue.

Samples of my work appear elsewhere on this site, and references from previous customers are available on request. Feel free to contact me on +44 (0) 7971 460788 or by e-mailing to discuss your requirements or to request a competitive quotation.
