About Us

Northlight Images – commercial photographers

We take photographs that get your message across.

We are based in Leicester, in the UK East Midlands and provide commercial photography and photography related training services throughout the world.

Northlight Images Photography was founded in 2003 by photographer and industry expert Keith Cooper. We only work with other businesses – so no weddings, babies or pets – and all our focus is on working with you, providing images that tell your story and promote your business.

Our chief photographer, Keith Cooper, works closely with many of the photographic industry’s leading innovators and manufacturers, testing and reviewing the latest equipment and software. You can be sure that when we are taking your photographs we are using the most up to date equipment and software – and that we know how to get the best from it.

We are always looking for a creative or technical challenge and have developed techniques and processes for producing photographs that other professionals have not even thought of – indeed, on some occasions, we have used equipment and software in ways even the manufacturers had never thought of.

A professional business

Northlight Images is a public limited company and we take our professional and corporate responsibilities seriously.

We are fully insured with public liability cover up to £5 million. We undertake full risk assessments in advance of every project.

About our prints

The prints themselves are printed using high quality pigment based inks to give a range of tone and detail that is difficult to achieve with conventional darkroom processes.

We produce prints to look their best under specific lighting conditions and are happy to discuss your detailed requirements before printing.

Digital technology has advanced to the stage where Keith now uses it for all of his work.

The latest advancements in the printing process at Northlight Images utilise high resolution digital printers, and specially formulated ink sets. Our fine art prints are printed onto high quality specialist papers.

Keith carries out testing work for several major printer manufacturers and specialist paper suppliers, and writes the various articles and reviews on this site.

Please feel free to contact us if you would like any more technical information about the prints, or the processes used.

About Keith Cooper

Keith Cooper is Northlight’s chief photographer (more biographical details) and says:

“I hope you enjoy some of the images I’ve got on this site, both landscape and commercial. If you are looking for a commercial photographer, then I hope some of my passion and interest for the subject comes across, and you can see how I could help get the photographs you want.”

There is a gallery of Keith’s landscape photography on the site.

“My Landscape photographs reflect a desire to capture the essence of a scene, from seashores to distant mountains. They are windows — I want people to be able to revisit them and share some of the emotions and wonder I feel when taking them. For me they work when people feel, even for a moment, that they are somewhere else. I’m pleased to be able to present some of my work through Northlight Images and hope that above all, people enjoy looking at what is here.”

Most of Keith’s landscape work is sold through exhibition and personal recommendation, to corporate and private clients, however the limited edition of works presented here is offered for sale by Northlight Images in a variety of sizes and mounting options.

This is explained in the ‘Buying prints’ section. Keith is happy to discuss direct commissions for specific work and locations (contact details above).

Keith has produced these exclusive versions of some of his most popular works for Northlight Images. The images on the site cannot truly do justice to a carefully framed 25×17 inch print (~63×43 cm), but will give some insight into the range of Keith’s work.

Please do have a look at the ‘Viewing tips’ page to ensure that your monitor is set up to display images at their best.

Keith’s equipment choices

If you’re curious about the sorts of photographic equipment Keith uses, then we’ve a page describing a lot of it. Many of the items have articles and reviews associated with them, part of our commitment to helping others get the best from their photography.
