I am freelance photographer based in the Docklands area of East London in the UK. Available for both paid and occasional TFP work within the London, Essex and Kent areas and further afield by arrangement. I have widely traveled in Europe and SE Asia, and I am happy to consider international assignments.

I bring many years of experience in photography in both film and digital formats, along with work in film and print processing. I also have extensive knowledge of digital post-production techniques using Adobe and DxO image processing applications. Including colour-correction and retouching images to bring you the best quality final images, building on great lighting and composition.

I work with a wide range of film SLR, DSLR & Medium Format equipment to cover formal and informal styles of photography including portraits, headshots, architectural, interiors, cityscapes/ landscapes, studio, catwalk, and street. I also have silent digital equipment suitable for use on film sets. I have invested in the best Nikon equipment and lenses to capture images of the highest quality. I also have an extensive range of Hasselblad and Fujifilm equipment.

I had the pleasure of working with Hiyafoto recently, not only is he a great photographer using light and composition to full advantage, but has a natural ability to put his subject totally at ease. I would and have fully recommended him...He's a real find - a gem.

I have had the pleasure of doing a photo shoot with Ed aka Hiyafoto and it had been my most fun shoot so far. Ed is great at making one feel at ease and strives to bring out the best in you. I would most certainly work with Ed again.
