Events, Weddings, Commercial, Music Photographer from Bournemouth; Providing powerful photographic coverage to companies and individuals.

My names James Bridle Im a photographer living in the heart of Bournemouth, Dorset. My work captures a range of genres from music festivals, to weddings, corporate, events, products and studio; I don’t think theres anything I’ve not been involved with at some point in my career.

I started as a photographer from the early age of 18. I have always had a keen interest in the music industry which has helped me develop a broad range of useful skills both technically and personally. Capturing the excitement of the crowd and the broad range of emotions you see around you is a truly amazing experience. I feel very lucky to be involved with some of the biggest music festivals in the UK from the historic Isle of wight festival to the colourful and energy driven Creamfields.

I cover a wide range of genres within the photographic spectrum and have been involved with many commercial projects with top brands, property photography for local estate agencies as well as weddings and corporate events. I also cover portraits sessions and private photoshoots at client request.

During my years as a photographer I've also travelled extensively and had the pleasure of working with both Cunard and Carnival to circumnavigate the world twice in opposite directions. This was an incredible experience that allowed me to vastly diversify my portfolio and learn some amazing things.

My interest and passion also comes from a deep sense of fulfilment, creating something special that I know my clients will love gives me such a euphoric buzz that keeps me producing fresh and creative ideas.

Whilst having a passion behind the camera I also enjoy my time in front of the Mac editing via Photoshop or Lightroom. Retouching images to polish those final images to perfection is a personal touch which I love to add.

If you would like to discuss any services you would like me to be involved with please don’t hesitate to drop me an email at jamesbridle@me.com or use the contact form found on this page. I’ll make sure have a response within 24 hours, this includes any quotes you may need, providing I have all information needed to create it.

I have not had James work for me personally however I have been with him whilst he is working and witnessed his passion for his craft. Just look at his results, you can tell how much he loves and enjoys his work. He has the most impressive portfolio, you do not get that without being the best at your job. I Can't recommend him enough.

James Bridle Photography Q&A

James Bridle Photography Q&A

What’s the secret to taking a great photograph?

I've always found lighting to be the best answer, and as an ambassador to a major international lighting brand such as Interfit Photographic this allows me to access amazing tools and bind this with 10 years of knowledge of both studio flash, as well as on/off camera flash.

What questions might you ask a client when starting a new project?

What do you want to achieve from the photographs taken. I find understanding why the need is there in the first place helps me to really get behind my clients original ideas, using good communication to then achieve our/the clients end goal.

What do you love most about your job?

The satisfaction of creating something really fantastic, and the great feedback from hard work. Its really the best thing and feeling a self employed creative can have. I will always work hard for my clients and have always been a conscience person, striving for the best possible outcome.

What inspired you to start your own business?

My business is based and founded on passion, its something thats grown with me. My love for music, travel and photography has taken me twice around the world. Working with individuals on projects which break the mould, using modern technics to achieve outstanding results.

Why should our clients choose you?

I think I have a great insight to clients requirements, their vision is my vision and a mutual understanding is key. I have always been an easy going person, sociable and trustworthy, I have a true passion for photography and an in-depth knowledge of the technical aspects to go with it. I work hard to earn my living and if going that little extra mile to provide my clients with better value for money as well as a great service I will definitely do so.
