Steve Watts

Originally from London and now based in North Shropshire, Steve has over 30 years experience as a professional photographer, covering photojournalism for national magazines and newspapers as well as commercial product and advertising photography, videography and video production.

Although being primarily behind the lens he's also worked in post production - so his experience is from start to finish for any photographic assignment. Importantly, Steve is security checked at appropriate levels to both work with children and on secure client sites, e.g. UK Government. His experience means he's personable, adaptable, reliable, creative and professional and always aims to get the result you want. 
Steve has worked with many leading UK brands, particularly in the agricultural and food sector.
