About Stevie Roberts, photographer
You & me
Hello. Thanks for visiting my site. I’m a professional, multilingual photographer based in Clapham, London specialising in event, party, food and portrait photography using a reportage style. You can find out more about what I do below and also by taking a look around the other sections on the website.
Having been brought up in Rome, Paris and Zurich I’m lucky enough to find myself all grown up and being fluent in French, German, Schweizerdeutsch and Italian. And English, of course… So if you have non-English speaking clients or a European-focused event that needs photographing, or would like some photographs taken around Europe, perhaps I can help you?
If you have a brief, a plan, a story you would like to tell, or even just the germ of an idea, I’d love to talk to you about it. You can either head on over to the contact page, email me on at firstname.lastname@example.org or give me a call on 0775 2498545
Food and hospitality photography
I love food almost as much as I love photography. Having trained in Hotel Management in Switzerland, and spent many happy years working in the hospitality industry, I have a passion for food, cooking, restaurants, hotels, markets, cafes and all things gastronomic. Back, and front-of-house hold an equal fascination for me, from observing the loving curated experiences of the guests, to capturing the personalities of the people who work there and all the small details that make great hospitality ‘great’. It’s a visual feast and there are captivating stories to be discovered in every business.
At some point most of us need some professional photos to represent ourselves, I take portraits of people for all sorts of uses: whether they be actors, dancers, musicians and models needing some portfolio ‘head shots’; or corporate clients looking for something different for their website or marketing publication that tells the story of their business. Businesses often need a set of portraits too, to capture the essence of what they do and project personality. Private commissions for individuals and families are a great pleasure too; shooting on location using natural light, or in a more considered setting. And of course, everyone looks much better if they are at ease in front of the camera, so that’s what I like to do. Having lots of fun on a portrait shoot makes for great images too. I have a particular interest in ‘generational photography’ – father and son, mother and daughter – taken in an informal setting, exploring and capturing these unique relationships in time.
Event & party photography
I appreciate ‘putting on a ‘do’, whether big or small, takes a lot of effort and often has a lot riding on it, which is why I like to get right to the heart of your event or party and understand how you want it to come across in pictures. After that its my job to seek out where the visual gems are to be found; mixing up the twin skills of being invisible to your guests and capturing them at their most natural; and being more interactive – a “camera provocateur” of sorts- to bring out their character and a real sense of what’s going on. From private parties, opening nights and PR launches, to corporate or charity events, award ceremonies and conferences, I’m here to provide you with fresh, memorable images that tell the story of the day as you would like it told.
