Our Pictures. Your Treasured Memories Forever.


My inspiration, and my dad.

My inspiration, and my dad, Colin.

Hi, my name is Simon, and I am an award-winning, professional portrait, commercial and event photographer based in Preston, Lancashire.

I’ve been taking pictures for a long time. In fact, I grew up in a family where my father’s obsession with photography and cine-film took him around the world. I was lucky enough to inherit one of his film cameras some years later, and my passion for photography began.

Times and techniques have moved on, as have the requirements of today’s modern customer. I exclusively shoot using the latest digital photography equipment and use professional, modern lighting to achieve contemporary pictures you’ll be proud to hang in your home.

Best Photographer Award 2018, 2019 & 2020!


For the third year in a row, Simon James Williams Photography has been the proud recipient of the Best Photographer In Preston Award. I am truly honoured to receive it again, as I strive to provide the best possible quality, service and affordable photography in the largest studio known in the area.

Simon made the whole experience so relaxed and much more enjoyable than I expected. The photos he took are really lovely and I’m so glad I chose him to do my special birthday pictures. Would recommend having Simon do your photos, he’s excellent.

5/5 Stars.
