I have many interests in photography and have specialized in weddings, portraits, events and equestrian and in order to provide some more challenges to my personal work have been developing my model portfolio. I have mixed this with an increased number of headshots and commercial shoots which I have undertaken.
I strongly believe in the need to continue training in which ever field you specialize in so try to undertake at least 3 serious training projects per year.
I have added a studio within my garden in the last year which is now fully equipped with Studio lights and I have access to many interesting locations. I have photographed weddings for over 25 years and am also Master Craftsmen of the Guild of Photographers. Please email me or send an email if you have a project or shot that you need help with
Very accommodating and flexible. Came to do twilight shots on Sat night after the previous night was rained off. Very happy with the results and would use again.
Very professional and personable individual. The quality of the pictures was excellent and very promptly delivered. Also, Jonathan was very responsive in any requests to 'touch up' the photos as required to correct colour balance etc.
Wow what can I say, Jonathon was amazing. He was professional, friendly, polite, and a true expert in his field. He managed to capture my special night perfectly, making memories I will be able to treasure forever. He made every one of my guests feel relaxed, & took wonderfully natural shots of us all enjoying the occasion. I can not recommend this man high enough, fantastic work! More...

Jonathan was very professional in doing the photography & made everyone feel at ease with him. Great Job done on our wedding day.
We contacted Johnathan from Piers photography on short notice to take a large group photo and found him very friendly and easy to work with.
He was very quick to accommodate our requirements for the prints and went out of his way to ensure we got exactly what we wanted.
We will definitely contact him for any photography needs we may have in the future. More...
Thanks Ben, A pleasure to work with your organisation and very easy communication and had great fun setting up these big groups look forward to working with you again
Piers Photography took a very professional approach to our project with some excellent results. Certainly wouldn’t hesitate in asking Johnathan again if we needed and similar work in the future. Thank you,
Fascinating project, beautiful location and really helpful staff all in all a thoroughly enjoyable job look forward to the next one!
Jonathan was great from the minute we exchanged messages on Bark, to the pre-meet on the actual day and then throughout the time we had with him during our shoot. He truly made our day even more special and knew the type of pictures we wanted. Anyone thinking of capturing a special moment the I would highly recommend Piers Photohraphy. More...

We will definitely be seeing him again in the near future

Fantastic service and photos! Jonathan provided an excellent service when we were looking for a photographer at fairly short notice.

I would highly rate Jonathan: I was unsure about getting a photographer for my event but now I am not sure how we would have managed without him. He was discreet, professional and put in a lot of effort and time before the event to answer my questions and scope out the venue. He is also a really lovely gentleman. Having looked at the photos we are absolutely delighted. We will be recommending Piers Photography to everyone we know. More...
Friendly and affordable, can't wait for the big day!
Jonathan did my 50th birthday photos, he was professional, friendly he put everyone at ease but most of all took lovely photos and now I have some great memories of a great day
Johnathan photographed our wedding. Everything was perfect. Jonathan was extremely professional, perfectly directed the hectic crowd with very calm attitude, helped as not only to have a perfect photographic memories but also mentally by unloading the pressure of this big day. He is the photographer you could only dream about during your wedding. Jonathan has great packages but also provides a flexible hourly service, so whatever you're looking for he's your guy! The pictures were in the online gallery the next day, and the pendrive with all the photos arrived few days after. I highly recommend Jonathan for his skills and great personality. I will definietly hire him again and recommend him to all my friends! More...
Jonathan done my daughters 1st Birthday party and he was absolutely amazing. He made all the guest feel comfortable and the pictures came out great. Great quality that comes with a great price. Highly recommend for any occasion. More...
Brilliant understanding and a very good price thanks
Consummate professional, made the arrangements easy to manage and helped turn a good weekend into an unforgettable one. One more thing, Jonathan is a really nice guy too. Highly recommended.
Excellent photographer & great to work with.
I'd definately recommend Jonathan. He photographed my daughter's 18th birthday party and we now have some fabulous pictures to remeber the occasion.
I don't think he took a break all evening!!
Many of our guests have commented on his proffessional approach.
Many thanks Jonathan..
Jonathan is an excellent and very amicable photographer. He took some amazing shots and I would definitely recommend him to all my friends
Very efficient. Very relaxed. All the right equipment, didn't take long to give me more than enough excellent photos of my flat of a very high quality. A pleasure to work with.... and a very competitive quote. Would use again and recommend. More...
Jonathan took the photographs at my mom and dad's Golden wedding lunch. He was excellent - put all the guests at ease - even the ones that did not want to be photographed - and he was a big hit with the small children. He was punctual and he charged a very reasonable price. The photos were available online for us all to share within a couple of days. I will certainly be using Jonathan again for any other functions we want photographing More...
Jonathan photographed our Bollywood party.
He provided a professional and punctual service at a fair price.
The quality of his work is very good.
The photographs became available online quickly and the memory stick arrived within days as promised.
Jonathan has a good manner with people.
We would use him again. More...
I have used Piers Photography for two business commissions. In both instances Jonathan took care to clarify the brief and then delivered exactly what I needed.
The key difference with Jonathan's portrait work is the way his calm assurance which puts you at your ease. Consequently the end result avoids the camera aware photographs so commonly seen.<br /><br />This is clearly an area where Jonathan's extensive experience makes the difference. More...
Jonathan is a true professional with the ability to transform challenging and potentially complex shoots into enjoyable and rewarding experiences for all concerned.<br /><br />In particular, on the last job he did for myself and one of my most prestigious Clients, I was very impressed by his ability to put people at ease and to deliver natural shots of people who were initially not at all relaxed with<span id="moreReview183799" class="hide"> the idea of being photographed.<br /><br />With over 40 management and staff to be photographed both in interior and exterior locations, this was not a photoshoot that I was prepared to trust to any other photographer I know. <br /><br />The result was a very pleased Client of mine who now has a library of exceptional photography to suit all envisaged requirements.<br /><br />I look forward to my next photoshoot with Jonathan and would certainly recommend his services to anyone looking for the highest quality results and excellent value for money.</span> More...
I have known Jonathan for over two years and we have done mutual business. He is extremely knowledgeable about photography and business matters and has a wealth of experience. he has produced excellent photographs for the Business Networking Group to which we both belong. More...
Mrs A Harrison
We have always wanted to have a family photo but getting 4 generations together was hard. The photo shoot went incredibly well and everyone was relaxed and had a genuine happy face rather than a forced smile. Would definitely do it again. We were not rushed and care was given in terms of eye for detail before taking the picture. More...
