Brighton Professional Photographer - Scott Ramsey

Fantastic Brighton, "London By The Sea". A charming seaside resort on the South coast of England, full of fun and sunshine. Well, most of the time ;-) So how did it all start for me! Heck 30 years taking photos, that sounds like a long time. Well, I started young, no honestly I did! You see my dad was an editorial photographer in Brighton and freelanced for the Brighton Argus, and now and then as a young boy, I would accompany him on photo assignments. At the age of about 11, I started taking photographs and inspired by his stories I soon decided the photographer's life was for me. I began my career as an editorial photographer and even freelanced for the same newspaper as him. I worked my way up to be a staff photographer on a paper in Wales, won a couple of photo awards, and then become a senior photographer for a national press agency. Over the years I've covered major news stories, photographed members of the Royal Family, had my work published in national newspapers, international magazines and covered assignments for small businesses and global companies. It's great, and my work varies every day, I could be taking a headshot of a CEO of a company one day and then creating a set of storytelling photographs small businesses website the next.

“Scott took some fantastic photos of our business launch event we didn't even notice he was there he was so discreet! The results have meant we have a great amount of content for social as well as memories to look back on. Scott also initiated a great press release with all his media contacts, highly recommended!”

Owner, Scott Ramsey, Answers Your Photography FAQs

Q: I need some photographs taken of my business how much do you charge?
A: I charge by the hour, and as every assignment is different I offer a free initial consultation and quote service.

Q: I know I need some photos taken but I'm not very creative so I don't really know what I need, can you help?
A: Yes, I'll work with you to create a list of photographs before the shoot goes ahead and also liaise with you as I create the images on the day.

Q: How many photographs will I receive?
A: During the initial consultation we'll work out how many images you require, and my quote will include the processing of these images. During the photo shoot, I'll often take hundreds of different photos to achieve the images you require, and you'll choose the ones you require from this selection.

Q: What happens if I've asked for ten edited photos but change my mind and want more?
A: That's not a problem, I'll just charge you the extra time it takes me to edit the photos for you.

Q: How do I book you?
A: Once you've agreed my quote I'll require a 25% booking fee to secure my services. When your chosen images have been processed and ready to be delivered the remaining amount will need to be paid, and once received your photos will be delivered.

Something You Might Not Know

I've lived and worked in the area all my life, so I know the city, and it's people very well, in fact, I started my career as an editorial photographer just down the road in Arundel 30 years ago, wow that makes me sound really old! Here's an interesting fact, did you know locales call Chichester, Chidester? It comes from the old dialect and fellow creatives, Brand Consultant Emily Penny and Graphic Designer Matt Burke, recently created the Chidester Tea Towel in aid of homelessness charity StonePillow. In a recent newspaper article, Emily said, “As a creative copywriter I am fascinated by language. I know people locally feel very fondly towards the Chidester name and I wanted to give it new life through a modern design."

It's a great idea, and I'm the proud owner of one myself ;-)

And here's a top tip if you run a local Chichester business - I highly recommend attending The Last Friday Club, it's a fab business networking group that meets up at various independent coffee shops and cafes in the city every month. Don't let the word "Networking" put you off, it's informal and fun, and I've met some great people there. So come along and try it out you won't be disappointed. Just be sure to say hello if you visit, you can normally find me chatting while enjoying a coffee.
