Paris Penny – Bristol Photographer


As a photographer based in Bristol, learn a bit more about me…

I’ve been a working photographer for 10 years. I started out assisting Bath based commercial photographer Phil Davis. From here I spent four years living in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and exploring South East Asia. Malaysia was the start of my own photography career. I shot directly for companies both big and small. I worked along side, marketing, PR and event companies. I had some amazing experiences, great opportunities and made my fair share of mistakes. Malaysia was my learning ground. The creative side, the technical aspects, photography’s role in business and of course the photographs you take, just because you can. Now back at home in Bristol as a professional photographer in Bristol, I bring all of this experience to every one of my clients. I concentrate on building relationships, to help develop brands.

How I work

Working as a professional photographer in Bristol may be easy as you see it. Outside of taking the photographs, my job is about understanding the businesses that I work with. Each of my clients have different needs, goals and stories to tell. The uses and styles differ from client to client, but the process to achieve great photography that helps you communicate with your customers is the same.

After years of working with different businesses, I see them all as a mix of three main subjects.

Products and services

This could be either your customers having a great time, employees being rewarded for performing well, the unique product, the extra length you go to stand out, the huge warehouse or road side stall.

By understanding your business model, target market, brand and marketing strategy, I am able to deliver photographs that not only look good but, photographs that are an investment in your business’s image.

Minimum work duration I can be booked at either an hourly rate, half day rate or a full day rate. The hourly rate will also incur a 1 hour processing fee on top of the time spent on shoot.

Areas covered: I am available for commission in the UK and abroad. I am a South West based professional photographer, covering Bristol, Bath, Swindon, Wiltshire, Cheltenham and London.
