About the Photographer

Mark Hamilton

I am a portrait and editorial photographer based in London. I have been photographing people for 25 years. I have a bachelors degree in fine art and a masters in animation. I have several years’ experience working with actors, musicians, corporate clients, and PR companies and I love photographing people.

I take a contemporary approach to my work and don’t necessarily always adhere to the old conventions of headshot photography. I prefer to try and arrive the look and the feeling you want to achieve by working closely with you before we start shooting. You are the most important person on the day and I will be able to help and advise you on this. You can relax and enjoy the experience whether in the studio or on a location of your choice.  It is important to me that you are able to chat, relax and have fun; that is all it’s about.

I don' sit you in front of the lights and just shoot hundreds of similar pictures as is often the norm with this type of photography. I will try different set ups so you have a choice instead of a pile of shots with hardly any variation. Your image is important to me but critical to you; we will work together to capture the moment.

I am happy to have a chat anytime on questions of makeup, clothing or anything else that you want to know. Call or email anytime and I will be able to guide you in your needs.

Clients include: John Lewis, Whitbread, ITV2, Diaggio, Microsoft,Marks and Spencer, Penguin, Bloomsbury Publishing, Independent on Sunday, Harper Collins and Universal Music
