Professional commercial landscape photography - by Keith Cooper

Images of the natural and man-made environment

Location Photography - when you need to convey the real feeling and emotional impact of a location, you need the skills of someone who specialises in commercial location photography.

Keith Cooper and Northlight Images provide professional landscape and location photography services in Leicestershire, the UK East Midlands and throughout the UK.

There are more examples on our specialist Architectural photography site.

This is an entirely bespoke service, which produces, for you, attractive fine art images of the natural and built environment that can be used for promotional and decorative purposes.

A large print of the viaduct, in the gallery to the right, was one of several created for decorative use on the nearby estate.

We can also photograph industrial landscapes, providing high resolution detailed imagery for construction and architectural uses.

Even in our contemporary landscape prints, we aim for realism and most of the photographs you see on this page and the gallery, are largely as they come out of the camera - we feel it's important that you can see our photographic skills not just our Photoshop abilities.

Our commercial landscape photography is in addition to the range of decorative and fine art prints in our print gallery and commercial fine art prints.

How much does all this cost?

We will always provide written quotations and agree costs in advance. Longer projects and multiple locations may attract a substantial discount - Please give us a call if you would like to discuss a project or get a firmer estimate.

The table at the right gives an idea of our typical 'one off' day rates – usually charged for photography at client’s premises/facilities - however, we will always provide a detailed quote to match your specific requirements.

What is included in the cost

Our landscape photos are always supplied to meet your needs and we offer high quality image retouching and editing services.

We provide images in digital formats to suit -your- requirements, typically 'print ready' at 300dpi and whatever size you need, in either TIFF or Photoshop PSD formats.

Images are also supplied in JPEG format at a range of sizes.

We can produce CD/DVD based 'web galleries' of your images and will quote for any additional image enhancement or processing work that you may require.
