Our Stills Photographic services be it as a commercial stills photographer, fashion, advertising or studio photographer, extend to cover a wide range of styles including differing approaches to lighting to complement and enhance the subject matter, both in the studio and out on location. We provide a comprehensive service from planning, to the shoot and through to post production processing and the final images whether they be for an advertising bill board, a poster, a print or the web.

We have many years experience of lighting, television production and freelance photography that allows us to provide a unique and specialised photographic service whether for still or moving images. Lighting and photography are two specialist and inter-dependent crafts that are for us a passion, not just a job.

Our Commercial Photography, fashion, advertising, interior, food and product photography benefits hugely from our specialist lighting design skills and allows us to offer a very creative and artistic service backed by a wealth of technical knowledge.

Adrian Turpin Lighting Design was founded in 2006, borne out of a great passion, unerring self belief and sheer determination. ATLD Ltd. followed in 2010 and in 2014 we formed a new company, Adrian's The Light Direction Ltd. to better reflect the services and specialisations that we offer. We have come a long way from those early days and we are incredibly proud of what we have created and what we have achieved.

Thank you for your interest in our site and our company.
