Hi, I'm James and I am a Swindon based Photographer and Video Producer specialising in Portraits, Family, Engagements, Corporate Photography and Headshot photography.
My love for photography walks hand in hand with my love of telling stories. Every photograph tells a story and it is my job to capture and preserve that story. I think it is the best job in the world!
As a photographer, I work in the studio and on location depending on the shoot. Each shoot is customised for you and what you want. I will work tirelessly to make sure I get it just right so you come away from the experience feeling like you had a really good time and have a good set of photographs to look back on and remember.
As a Video Producer, I work almost exclusively within Corporate Video Production and producing video marketing content for SME's and larger companies to help promote their services and to increase customer and consumer awareness.
I hold a Full Clean UK Driving License, am a Car Owner and hold an Enhanced DBS Certificate.

James Watts Q&A
What’s the secret to taking a great photograph?
A great photograph for me tells a story. The look between two people. The life a person has led. Their personality. Their love. Their joy.
Being able to capture these moments on camera is a privilege and what I love about what I do is that I get to get those moments with my camera.
What questions might you ask a client when starting a new project?
It'll never be just one question I can assure you of that!
Each response is personalised because I'm actually a human being and not a robot.
Typically these responses will be asking about what are you looking for & when do you need it by.
What do you love most about your job?
The saying that "working doing what you love means you'll never do a day's work" is very true for me. I live, breathe and dream about photography and video production.
What inspired you to start your own business?
I wanted to be able to do something which I enjoyed doing and I've been fortunate that in my career I've been able to do that in every job I've had.
Going freelance and running my own business was the next logical step in taking control of the work I do and most importantly, who I meet.
Getting to meet new people everyday and be able to do the job I love is worth every second.
Why should our clients choose you?
If you want someone who is as enthusiastic about your project as you are then you've got a friend in me (at least I hope you're passionate about your project!).
I always want you to be at ease and will be with you every step of the way to let you know what we're doing, at what stage we're at during editing and when you can expect delivery.
Basically, I won't let you down.
James Watts Services
Portrait Sessions - £40
Sessions in the studio whether they are of you and your partner, your children or just yourself are relaxing, engaging and most of all, fun! Before the shoot even starts I find out from you exactly what you want, who you want it for (Grandparents, Parents, Yourself) and what will happen during the session itself. A typical session is 1 hour in the studio where we get to know you during the shoot, help you to relax and bring out that great personality that is hiding away. If you don't like being photographed before you come to the studio, you'll love it after we've finished! Starting Price: £40 - This gets you up to 1 hour in the studio, an exclusive viewing session at a later date and one 5x7 print of your choosing. The full range of photographs will be available for you to purchase as prints or digital copies. There is no obligation to buy and I'll never give you a hard sell.
Headshot Sessions - Individual (£150)
Whether you are an aspiring actor, performer, musician or a business professional looking to update your social media profiles - an eye catching headshot will make you stand out from the pack. I work with you in both the studio and out on location to capture the headshot you are looking for, the style you are going for and the aspects of your personality and range you want to show off. Price: £150 - For this you get a 90 minute session either in the studio or out on location (weather permitting and depending on whether you have permission for us to photograph there). You will get 5 photographs of your choice retouched and provided digitally. Prints are available to purchase if desired.
Pet Photography - £40
If you love your pet as much as I love mine then you want to capture every single moment with them on camera. I go out on location with you to take environmental photographs of your dog, running around a secure field to get naturalistic shots of your dog. Alternatively if your dog is a little bit older in their years, I can come to your home and photograph your pet in the comfort of their favourite blanket and toys. The session includes me spending 1-2 hours with you on location or at your home. You will also get an exclusive viewing session at a later date and one 5x7 print of your choosing. The full range of photographs will be available for you to purchase as prints or digital copies. There is no obligation to buy and I'll never give you a hard sell.
Engagement Photography - £60
If you've just celebrated getting engaged, congratulations! To mark the occasion you've probably been out for a meal with your friends and family and told everyone the news. But maybe you've missed out on getting that photo of the two of you, you've always wanted. Couple shoots or engagement shoots are all about the two of you and no-one else. They give you a chance to get to know how each other is in front of the camera and be at ease and learn what works and doesn't work before the big day. For the session I spend 1-2 hours with you out on a location of your choosing. This will also entitle you to an exclusive viewing session at a later date and one 5x7 print of your choosing. The full range of photographs will be available for you to purchase as prints or digital copies. There is no obligation to buy and I'll never give you a hard sell.
Commercial Photography - £200 per half day
Getting professional shots of your business will make you stand out to your customers and clients by saying that you take your business seriously enough to make it look good. From shots of your products, services to employees, nothing makes your business look more professional than a good set of photographs. Proofs are delivered digitally in file types of your choice.
