Our Pictures. Your Treasured Memories Forever.
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 honored 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.
Coronavirus – Protecting You!
Personal / Family / Headshots
Here at Simon James Williams Photography, we are doing everything we can to combat Covid-19 – while still ensuring you have an enjoyable photoshoot at the studio.
First and foremost, your safety is of paramount concern to us and as such we have taken measures to ensure social distancing and cleanliness while on your shoot.
We will be providing facemasks, should you require one, for any discussions about your shoot prior to the actual shoot itself. We also have isopropyl hand gel freely available for you to use.
During your photoshoot, you will obviously want to temporarily remove any facemasks, and I always ensure a 2m+ distance from you while taking your pictures. I may move around and ask you to pose, but it will all be “hands-off”. This may increase the photoshoot time a little, but it is easily achievable and not a problem.
If you have any further queries or concerns regarding this, then we are very flexible but you can contact us if you have specific questions.
Commercial shoots will be discussed prior to the project. I often work alone during product shoots, so social distancing only needs to be adhered to during any face-to-face consultation.
We can discuss this more at the time of booking/enquiry.
Bounce-back / Discount Scheme
Did your business suffer over the last few months due to either no online platform to sell or poor quality images that always make your products look cheap?
We are offering a huge ‘first come, first served’ discount scheme. In rough terms, your business qualifies by:
- 20% of the final invoice will be deducted as a ‘bounce-back’
- The first 20 customers who successfully apply (they are already going fast!)
- Minimum final invoice (pre-discount) invoice £500
- Expires end August 2020
