A Commercial Photographer with Your Business In Mind
✔Do you want to build a business that customers will come to know, trust and even love?
✔Do you yourself want to be seen as trustworthy, approachable and liked?
✔Do you want to increase your bookings and/or sales and secure more repeat business?
Every successful business today knows that clients are won with an EFFECTIVE online presence. Professionalism and trust have always been the currency by which sales are made and in the online world this is no different. However, in the online world, that trust is built (or lost) at the click of a button and the sight of an image. Your mobile phone images may hurt your business more than help it.

"Steve was just amazing during my headshot photography session. He makes you feel completely at ease from the word go and gives direction and instructions in a positive way. We had a real laugh at the same time which added to the experience, again just helping to make me feel much more at ease with having my photo taken.
They say you do business with people you know, like and trust. And Steve ticks all three boxes. Highly recommended!!"

"I just love a recommendation! For this reason, I didn't hesitate to connect with Steve having commented to a LinkedIn connection, that I liked their headshot photo.
Steve made the whole daunting process of a photoshoot, a brilliant experience. He was prompt, reliable, patient, made suggestions and was very giving of his time and expertise. To sum Steve up, he is a fantastic photographer, consummate professional and a really nice guy.
Simply, check out Steve's website to see his work, his product photography is simply stunning. The photos which Steve took for my new website, Menopause 360 (due to launch mid-October) were perfect for our requirements.
Steve, we enjoyed working with you immensely. Thank you for sharing your knowledge and expertise. We look forward to launching our new website shortly, in the knowledge your images have enhanced the site's appeal"

"For many, the prospect of having professional photographs taken can be a daunting one - and I count(ed) myself squarely amongst that number. Step forward Stephen Gaskell. From the first conversation with Stephen, it was obvious to me that I was working with a true professional with skills that reach way beyond those of photography itself. The way in which Stephen guided me through the entire process from goal setting & scheduling through to the actual shoot and product delivery was first class. Working with Stephen was an absolute pleasure and I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending him to anybody considering a new set of profile images."
Graham Carr on 22 September 2020
"Stephen is highly skilled and creates the most amazing images. His quality of work and the vision and passion he has simply makes him fantastic in his role. In a day and age of selfies and amateur photography made accessible using modern mobile phones, Stephen reminded me that photography is in fact an art and a talent."
Rachel Cummings on 18 September 2020
"I had finally made the plunge to change my LinkedIn photo and decided rather than haphazardly use my rubbish phone camera I would call in the experts.
Prior to lock down I wouldn't have had a clue who to call but over the last 6 months I have built some wonderful virtual relationships and one in particular with Stephen.
Wow, I was bowled over by his professionalism from start to finish, he totally put me at ease, we had a right giggle, gave me some tips to get rid of that dreaded double chin.
The work and input that goes into getting that final image blew me away, the investment was such a small amount for the service and attention received.
Stephen is a true gent, professional, kind, funny and talented, the list could go on. I would highly recommend him."
Kerry Swift on 29 August 2020
"Recently had the pleasure of being a client of Steve's. I was in desperate need of a head shot, due to the current economic climate it wasn't possible to use the traditional method. Steve was able to adapt around this issue and carry out the shoot digitally. Overall fantastic experience, would highly recommend!"
Ben Thomas on 10 February 2020
"I recently had the pleasure of being a client of Skyhawk Pictures who produced a music video for me and I am absolutely delighted with the results! Steve knew exactly what I wanted from the little ideas I gave to him and he went the extra mile, too. He is very relaxed and friendly yet completely professional and really understands his craft. A fabulous experience from the initial stages right up to the finished product. Thank you, Skyhawk Pictures!"

"I've been running Anne Roberts Hair & Beauty for 30 years, a salon which offers high-quality beauty and aesthetic services to new and long-standing customers. I felt our website was a little impersonal and lacked that human touch, so I wanted to update it with short bio's and headshots of our fantastic team. There are many potential photographers out there and I was concerned about making the wrong choice as we initially tried to take the photos ourselves but they were a disaster & looked awful. Fortunately, Stephen was recommended to me and, having seen the work on his website and spoken to him directly, I booked him. He worked with each staff member individually, taking the time to bring out the very best from each of them - some hated the prospect of a photo shoot at first, but they had fun in the end and we ended up with some fantastic shots of the girls which both they and I were very happy to use on our website. Since then I have booked Stephen again to produce short videos of so"
