Friendly, Professional Photography for Pets, People & Business

Portraits of your favourite furry friend, yourself, non-furry friends, kids or your business at its best.

 
 

Pets

To be honest, these are my favourite clients. Besides paying projects I do pro bono work with charities like animal shelters.

 
 

People

This can be a family portrait, you and best friend, kids or high-quality portrait for professional social media.

 
 

Business

From corporate portraits and food shots, to business activity and product photos, I can help you promote your business by helping your products and services look their best.

 

Clients Saying Nice Things

Tim has a great technique. He starts chatting to you as he sets up and just as you begin to relax and laugh at one of his (many!) jokes the camera goes off. He sets his equipment up in a way that means he doesn’t constantly look at you through a lens, but rather uses a portable remote to take the shots, so he can chat and look at you like in a normal conversation. I’ve had loads of great compliments on my profile picture and people who have known me for years loved how it captured my energy and style.
— Natal Dank (Southern Blue Consulting)
I’ve had pictures taken by Tim three times now (social media, outdoor and at a public event). Every time a pleasant experience resulting in beautiful pictures. During the shoots Tim always helps me to relax and he gives tips on my posture and facial expression which improves pictures tremendously. He seems very knowledgeable on the technical part and a perfectionist about getting the lighting right. I definitely recommend Tim if you’re looking to have important pictures taken.
— Dick Severius (Maakeenpraatje)
I like working with Tim. He is stress-proof and makes people feel at ease, look their best and seems to make everybody giggle the right amount. He gets the job done in the (often small) amount of time that’s given and can make it all work under the given circumstances.
— Tessa van der Meiden (NewForeSight)
Though I don’t like having photos of myself taken, Tim made me feel very comfortable during our photo shoot so that smiling came naturally. I’ve received many compliments on my photo from social media contacts and followers and, most importantly, I’m very happy with the photo myself.
— Ana da Silva
I first was introduced in 2012 to Tim Goodwin through a friend who knew his work. Since then we have done many photo projects together, both business and personal. Tim’s knowledge of the camera, lighting and his ability to put people at ease is impressive. His versatility in working with moving or still objects is evident. Tim has photographed me for social media, printed marketing material as well as food photography and more. Personal shots using a variety of lighting techniques produced better results than I’ve had with other photographers. He is also mobile with his photography gear, making it very convenient. He is both professional and relaxed and a pleasure to work with so I would highly recommend him.
— Joyce Bergsma (EatLiveLoveFood)
Tim is the most friendly and co-operative photographer that I know of. He makes brilliant pictures in a creative and very diverse way. Over the past few years he made photos of me in several settings: while performing with the vocal group Angels in a theater, business portrait and group photos, photographed me nude, took romantic shots of me being pregnant and photographed our baby later on. All photo’s are very professional, clear and show the best of me. Furthermore: after the photoshoot Tim takes no more than 1 or 2 days to deliver the shots so you can decide which one you like best. So, I would definitely recommend Tim to anybody who wants to get professional results while also having a pleasant time!

Pricing

Over the years I've experimented with all sorts of fixed-price packages but I tailor my work so much to my clients' requirements that these packages almost never make much sense in the end.

I typically charge £250 for a session of up to 3 hours (following a consultation) resulting in 100+ usable photos and at least 3 or 4 retouched images suitable for printing. Travel to a single location in the Brighton & Hove area is included. This can be indoor or outdoor and sometimes both depending on the type of location.

Longer or more complex shoots will cost more. On the other hand, if you need something simpler or quicker we can come to a more economical arrangement.

What's most important to me is that you feel you're getting value-for-money and that I deliver what you need.

 

About Tim

 

Tim is formally educated to degree level but has never let this hold him back. After flirting with various career paths, he spent more years than he cares to think about as a freelancer designing Oracle systems for corporations.

Running TG Photography lets Tim combine his legendary enthusiasm for photography and quite alarming array of equipment with the geeky and somewhat less geeky aspects of his broad experience. He also runs siteboosta.com, designing and building Squarespace websites for the rich and famous, poor and unknown alike.

Something of a 'Rebel Without a Clue', it's been said that Tim is quite a decent bloke and that his relaxed, patient manner (mixed with a 'dad joke' or two) helps to quickly build mutual trust and lasting working relationships.

On the odd occasion he isn't working, Tim enjoys avoiding Adam Sandler movies, obsessing about electric cars, making good coffee (as he has done since pre-hipster), cooking like an absolute manic and travelling to places where he can do all those things, and be warm.

Tim has recently moved from Amsterdam to Brighton where he wishes he could have a pet dog.
