Hello, I am Adrian. My company The Light Direction Ltd. is a very successful, highly motivated and creative company based in the Lake District, Cumbria from where we cover the North West of England, Glasgow, Manchester, Lancaster, Liverpool and further afield too.

We provide specialist services in the fields of Cinematography, Lighting Design and Stills Photography.

Our Lighting Design and Cinematography services cover television, theatre, video, film, concerts and live events. Adrian is a BBC trained Lighting Designer, Lighting Cameraman and Director of Photography. He works on commercial film and video production and as a documentary film maker.

Our Stills Photographic services be it for fashion, advertising, food and drink, product or interior, extend to cover a wide range of styles including differing approaches to lighting to complement and enhance the subject matter, both in the studio and out on location. We provide a comprehensive service from planning, to the shoot and through to post production processing and the final images whether they be for an advertising bill board, a poster, a print or the web.

We have many years experience of lighting, television production and freelance photography that allows us to provide a unique and specialised service whether for still or moving images. Lighting and photography are two specialist and inter-dependent crafts that are for us a passion, not just a job.

We look forward to talking and working with you.

Review of The Light Direction Ltd. by Kate Danchin

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.

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.

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!

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!

The Light Direction Ltd. Q&A

The Light Direction Ltd. Q&A

What’s the secret to taking a great photograph?

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.

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

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...?

What do you love most about your job?

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.

What inspired you to start your own business?

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..!

Why should our clients choose you?

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.
