A few years ago I put together a post sharing 25 UK-based small business photographers as I wanted to create a useful resource for small business owners, as I truly believe getting professional photography done is one of the utmost important investments you can make for your brand. I share this post regularly and know that lots of small businesses and photographers have come together through it.

Since then, I’ve come to know even more excellent photographers around the UK that love to create imagery for independent businesses. Some which have worked with us here on the magazine, and some who I’ve discovered through other means. Therefore, this is Part II – another 25 photographers who you might like to employ to shoot your brand, product or lifestyle imagery.

Again, I can’t stress enough how valuable it is to invest in a professional photographer. Whether you run a product business, a service business, solely online or a physical shop or venue, having a strong visual identity is essential and will truly elevate your brand.

There is a photographer to suit every style, budget and location, (in fact most are happy to travel!) so do browse our round up below, and check out the previous post too for another collection of creatives to consider…
