Alex Orrow Specialising in corporate headshots, portraits, architecture, interiors, healthcare, aerial drone photography and video. I've been a commercial architecture and corporate portrait photographer for 24 years, in London and Reigate, Surrey. Shooting locally, across the UK and around the world. In that time I've been lucky enough to work with all sorts of amazing people, from chief executives and sports stars to nurses and newborns, with the odd celebrity chef and prime minister thrown in for good measure.

My work spans everything from corporate marketing to magazine editorials, with specialities in portrait, location, architectural, healthcare and aerial drone photography. I've earned the trust of a mix of regular clients, including governmental departments, big multinationals, public bodies and local independent businesses.

Working alone or with art directors and designers, in the studio or in demanding environments, my approach is all about putting people at ease to capture the dynamic, creative shots you need with minimal fuss and equipment.
Highlights

read more › I am used to working with art directors and designers keeping in mind the brand style, layout considerations and the requirements of the brief will all be discussed before the shoot. To ensure a smooth photoshoot. I bring a mobile studio including lighting and backdrop. I understand the need to work around busy schedules and tight corners. My approach is efficient utilising minimal equipment but always ready to take advantage of the unexpected. I provide a full retouching service and include image optimisation as standard, this ensures photographs are ready for reproduction at the highest quality and in the shortest timeframe possible, while still adhering to style and brand guidelines.

I specialise primarily in aerial stills and video of residential and commercial property located within Surrey, Suffolk, Kent, Berkshire and Buckinghamshire. I take the same meticulous approach to the creative production of the aerial photography as my standard architectural photoshoots, assessing the best composition and light alongside high quality post production.

My method is about putting people at ease and capturing a subject looking relaxed and approachable. Utilising either minimal lighting equipment or natural daylight I enjoy making the process easy for everyone involved while crafting an image which best reflects my clients brand either through lighting, location or a particular pose. I favour balanced lighting without harsh shadows and shallow depth of field or out for focus background.

With over 20 years of extensive experience gained taking photographs in some of the most challenging and sensitive hospital environments. A&E, operating theatres, intensive care units, busy paediatric wards. I understand the need to remain respectful and mindful of staff at work and patient privacy and well being. In the busiest of environments, I aim to bring a minimum of equipment and work quickly to not keep any staff from their work or disrupt services.

Taking advantage of slider and lightweight gimbal technology we capture a great variety of professional video footage that will work to showcase great design, provide a walkthrough, demonstration or instructional video. We can also conduct interviews constructing the format and questions for subjects. Video is particularly effective at creating engagement on social media and web marketing platforms.
