Adrian, at The Light Direction, came very highly recommended to me and I couldn't be happier with the beautiful photographs he took for my holiday cottage website. He is a pleasure to work with and, rather than just producing a set of 'professional photographs', he really listened to what I needed and was hoping to achieve. He works hard to ensure that every detail is perfect. On a rather dreary Winter's day, he used clever external lighting to ensure that the cottage was 'bathed in sunlight'. He is a true artist and I will definitely use him again. More...

This was our first collaboration with Adrian and the results were excellent. What we asked him to do was technically very difficult as it was photographing luminescent products in low light. I am more than happy to recommend The Light Direction to anyone needing product photography. More...

End result some great photos! To get there it was easy to work with Adrian, he listened to what we wanted & across the board, close up food shots, indoor scenes & outdoor scenes they've all worked. He was even able to come out & take the outdoor shots on a lovely autumnal day between the deluges! More...

Adrian is a truly gifted individual and when you throw in the mix all his experience you are sure to come out with very professional results every time. We arranged a photo shoot with Adrian to compile a bank of professional photos of our food for marketing use. He turned our dining room into what looked like a 5 Star restaurant with very clever lighting techniques and made the food look mouth-wateringly good too. We look forward to using the material in magazines, websites etc. Thanks again Adrian- you’re amazing. More...

We want to thank Adrian so much for the amazing Lakes Christian Centre's History of the Church DVD he produced for our 90th Birthday Celebration service. He is naturally very gifted and his skill, time and effort is greatly appreciated. It was a great joy to work with him and he was very patient with us. We would love to work with him again.Mike - Lakes Christian Centre More...

It was a pleasure to work with Adrian on the Glen Grant commercial drama. He is a very experienced DoP. Not only was he DoP, but he recorded audio onboard the camera too. He also graded the footage in post too! I learned a lot from him and look forward to working with him again in the future - hopefully in Speyside. He is quite the wizard behind the lens. Couldn't have done it without him! More...

Worked for the day with Adrian with great success. His attention to detail is to be admired, creating a great selection of photographs.....we were delighted with the end result! We are currently discussing creating a short film for my business so again looking forward to working with Adrian over the coming weeks. More...

Adrian has worked on two video projects and a stills shoot for me and I have been delighted with the results. He combines a keen eye for detail with a creative flair that produces work that is highly original. Adrian was great at listening and understanding my brief, even when it was fairly vague. He then interpreted what I needed in a way that was only possible with his huge amount of knowledge and experience. Thanks Adrian. Look forward to the next project! More...

A connection with your subject. Understanding the relationship between foreground and background... often the background is more important. Lighting is a little understood craft that separates an average picture from a great picture, especially for commercial photography.

So... what would you like to achieve with your pictures or footage... what are we shooting, what kind of style, what are you trying to sell or convey...?

I love lighting and creating images... whether still images or moving images... I never get tired of the creative process, bringing a lot of elements together at one time to create that moment that you then capture.

I have previously worked in the theatre as a lighting designer and then at the BBC as a vision engineer learning about the technical aspect of cameras and pictures and as a lighting designer, painting with light... I have worked on some fabulous projects over the years... but eventually my passion and my drive to have my own company and go out there and meet some new challenges was too great to resist..!

Our passion, our attention to detail... we want to produce the best that we can, every time we go out there... and we don't cut corners and we don't accept second best.
