A Geometry of People

I make portraits of the most influential personalities in British society; Prime Ministers, CEOs, opera stars, generals and of course John in Accounts (Never ever forget Accounts). I shoot all over the world and I like people, that’s my thing.

I studied at Bournemouth College of Art in the 90s and  have been working from London since 2000. I have work in the permanent collection of  The National Portrait Gallery  (which makes me inordinately big headed) and I am syndicated by Camera Press who send me a Christmas card every year without fail.

Drop me a line if you would like to discuss a project or just chew the cud. I'll put the kettle on.

Peter Gingell. Group Art Director, Screen International

I have worked with Peter for 15 years now and for good reason. Going into any photoshoot with him puts me immediately at ease. I know he will be a consummate professional dealing with both the subjects in front of the camera and the behind the scenes team. He is very creative in his approach and always looking for the best angles, the best backdrops, working tirelessly within tight timeframes. The final results are always excellent, and he is simply a joy to collaborate with.

Samantha Hurran. Group Finance Director, Tag

I've hired Peter several times for executive headshots & reportage style team photos. I always feel so lucky because I'm such a fan of his portraits that being able to hire him to take my headshot is a joy. He is able to put anyone at ease and produces great results from even the most reluctant sitter - myself included. He's a pleasure to work with. 

Claire Kidd. Lead & Transform

I have worked with Peter over a number of years, on various diverse projects and can truly say that I am amazed by the results every time. He is a rare talent that produces outstanding work, with a breath of experience that shines through his fine attention to detail and the ability to create a space and light, that brings out not only the very best of whatever subject he is photographing, but a unique angle that no one else in his field can match. In addition, he has a calm and professional manor that puts his clients at ease and able to provide exceptional work in the most challenging conditions with a refreshing adventurous attitude -a joy!

Craig Prentice. Founder and Director, Mum

Peter has been a real pleasure to work with and one relatively short coffee conversation led to a productive session with some great results. Peter is an absolute pro from start to finish and makes everything feel seamless - thank you Peter!
