Bio - Scott Ramsey
I’m a visual content creator, photographer, Periscope & Facebook live broadcaster, social media manager, Blogger, YouTuber, bearded coffee drinker.
Based near Worthing in Sussex I’m available for hire across South East England and the UK, in fact if the project is interesting enough I’ll travel the world ;-) I work with small and large businesses to create great visual content for social media updates, websites and offline projects whilst working on my own documentary work.
I shoot editorial & stock photography, love tech, prefer Apple over Microsoft, always have something to charge and can often be found at the beach.
Oh yes, I still think an image can change the world and I have a curly moustache like Hercule Poirot!
Sussex Photographer & Visual Content Creator
Photographer in Sussex - Covering Worthing, Brighton and the UK
Not All Photographers Are The Same
I've been a professional photographer and a visual content creator in Sussex for 30 years, you could say it's in my blood. My father was a photographer, and I started taking photos as a boy and had my first photo published in the Daily Mirror aged 13. Photography, and in recent year's video, to me has and will always be a way of telling a story, and over the years I've worked on some of the UK's biggest news stories and had my images published in national and international newspapers and magazines. Along with my editorial work I often work with small businesses and global companies who commission me to tell the story of their business, brand or product.
My unique set of photography skills and ability to craft a story with emotive and beautiful still and moving images makes me one of the leading visual content creators in the UK. I travel regularly across Sussex covering assignments in Worthing and Brighton, and often self-fund personal photography projects and mini-documentaries about stories that I feel should be shared with a broader audience.
I love using available light but am just at home shooting with flash although I'm not a studio photographer! I create all my photographs and video on location.
The Story Matters
For me, it's always about the story or should I say my client's story! To achieve this, I'm a highly skilled all-rounder just at home shooting or filming a product, property, landscape, event or a portrait photograph. I specialise in photographing people and have an informal and inquisitive nature that allows me to bring out the best in the people I meet. Once I've created this visual story, I often work closely with my clients to advise them how to best distribute the content on their website and across their social media platforms, after all, it needs to be seen. Although I started my career on the printed page, I'm just at home creating visual content for Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and across all social media platforms, websites and blogs.
I spotted the exciting potential of live broadcasting when it first launched several years ago on Periscope and regularly "Scope" on the platform. I've amassed hundreds of hours of live broadcasting and built up a large group of followers around the world. Several of my broadcasts have been featured & recommended by Periscope, which at the time pushed the viewing figures through the roof!
People and brands can now "Go Live" on platforms like Facebook & YouTube although like anything there's a skill required, a bad broadcast just like a poor photograph or video can do more harm than good. After being asked several times by my clients, last year I launched a social media live broadcasting service which has been a great success.
Lets Cut To The Chase
