“Great photography is not a luxury –
it is often the very first thing a prospective client or customer notices about your business”
Our photos help you make a better first impression.
Northlight Images provides you with a wide variety of expert commercial photography services. Use the clickable links below or the drop down menus above to find out how we can help you.
We are based in Leicester – the centre of the UK – and cover not just the UK East Midlands (Northampton, Nottingham and Derby) but are happy to travel nationally and – for companies with a UK presence – internationally too.
Images convey meaning at a glance…
We want to help you get the most from your photographs. Commercial photography is what we do – it’s what we get out of bed for…
Unlike some general purpose photographers, we don’t cover weddings or portraits or video. We only do commercial photography work, so you get our best attention.
Use an expert
Whether you need a specialist architectural photographer to document works in progress or showcase your project, or an advertising photographer to provide high quality pictures for brochures and annual reports, your web site or printed promotional material, we ensure that you get what you really want.
Choose a specialist photographer and let our passions work for you. If you don’t see exactly what you are looking for then please just ask… and, if what you need is not within our range of specialisms, we’ll happily refer you to another photographer with the expertise you need.
As well as our photography services, we also have a large collection of images of Leicester, available for stock use – perfect if you want to promote Leicester or a Leicester based business.

Some of our client’s comments.
"I was looking for a new perspective on a location that has been visited plenty of times before - Fantastic outcome and spot on, a very smooth process, quick turnaround and friendly approach. I have recommended you to my clients already who might be in touch directly. I don't often come across photographers who can make an average site stand out on a cloudy day!"Graphic Outlines Ltd - Design Agency
"We chose Keiths photograph because it depicts a Leicester scene and we are a truly local business, and to us it created a professional mood and theme in line with our work. Keith and Karen have been a pleasure to deal with, excellent service from beginning to end."Fox Associates
"We’ve used Northlight’s images for our corporate brochures, press materials and exhibition stands for a number of years. Our products are incredibly small and therefore very difficult to photograph, but with the wizardry from Northlight they have brought our products to life with fantastic high resolution imagery showing levels of detail we frankly did not know existed before we started working with them. We whole heartedly recommend Northlight and we are delighted with their imagery, professionalism, value for money and levels of service."Torex Semiconductor Europe
"Keith quickly understood the key aspirations of the design and he was able to capture the qualities of the building in his photos."Principal: Feldmann Architects
"You were happy to liaise with the site directly which was very helpful. It’s important we use photographers who are going to represent us professionally and it was very evident this was the case. Great pictures, very efficient and professional service."Clement windows - specialist heritage manufacturer
"Keith Cooper is a photographer with a great eye for a shot and we all think we are photographers until you see Keith's work. He is a good listener, has always given us what we asked for and often something better, and is well prepared using the right tools for the job - in fact he has equipment you didn't know existed. I would recommend Keith to any manufacturer looking for professional representation of their process and product."Ridgway Machines
"The team really enjoyed the training, and we all feel that we have learnt some essential tips to improve our pictures, at the very least learning to evaluate our photos on site and thinking about the story that they are telling. The format of the training worked well - with a bit of theory in the morning and practice in the afternoon. The information wasn’t too overwhelmingly technical and was pitched just right for our requirements. I would be happy to recommend the training to other sales teams."Nottingham Community Housing Assoc.
"Northlight Images were very professional throughout the shoot offering ideas of the best places and how best to maximise the shoot. They kept us informed constantly throughout the shoot, so we knew what was happening and constantly verified everything was ok, making the whole experience stress-free on our part."H.A.C Pipeline Supplies Ltd
