Photography services for commercial property owners,
Northlight Images provides high quality images that combine technically excellent images with a creative flair that is inspired by our landscape photography work, to give your pictures that little extra you need in a competitive market place.
We work with commercial property owners, sales agents, marketing and PR companies working on behalf of the commercial property sector and investments companies with property portfolios.
Wide angle, panoramic and rectified photography
To ensure you always get the best possible photographs of your property, we use specialised cameras, lenses and software that are designed to produced images that are geometrically correct – so producing an image that looks much more like the view you would see if you were standing in front of the building, rather than the ‘just about to fall over’ look that’s usually produced when taking a photograph with standard, non-specialised camera lenses.
Using image stitching techniques designed specifically for buildings, we can create extreme wide angle shots that capture your property in full, along with the environment it sits in.
With our 28 foot (8.5 metres) elevated tripod mast we can shoot above ground level to capture the full facade of a building – so perfect for busy town centres.
Based in the Midlands
Northlight Images is based in Leicester in the UK East Midlands (Northampton, Nottingham and Derby), but covers the whole UK, having worked from Cornwall to Scotland.
For international assignments we work with companies with a significant UK presence.
