Fun time-lapse film

Recently we created a fun video using time lapse photography and some post-production. It showcases the skill of fantastic portrait artist Casey Allum who we worked with on a Derwent Pencils commission - hope you enjoy it!

UK-wide, specialist photographic service

A quality professional commercial photographer can sometimes be hard to find locally. Unlike many other photographers who are generalists we only do commercial and advertising work. This means we are bringing a greater depth of experience across a broader range of commerical products and services to your own photographic needs.

By making use of the potential of digital photography and on-line tools for communicating remotely with clients we are able to provide our high quality specialist service to you wherever you happen to be located in the UK, or even overseas. We can also travel to client premises and locations when the job requires it; so either way you can have great Photography by Ward images.

Client feedback:

'As part of our website refresh we called upon Photography by Ward for help and advice with our product photography.

Working closely with Dayve was a pleasure. Importantly for us was Dayve’s ability and desire to listen and understand our ideas and objectives prior to commencement of the shoot. From our initial brief Dayve created a set of beautiful images that far exceeded our exacting standards and high expectations. Dayve’s understanding of both the technical and creative aspects of photography coupled with his ability to listen and realise the clients needs make him a true professional and we would unreservedly recommend him to any prospective clients looking for a thoroughly accomplished and creative professional photographer.
