Hi! I’m Carl Cooper

First and foremost, I am a photographer and filmmaker based in Kingston upon Hull, with quite a bit of published work in magazines, posters, brochures, theatres and exhibition centres throughout the UK and Europe.

I have a degree in photography and filmmaking and recently earned my Licentiate with the Royal Photographic Society allowing me to use the letters LRPS after my name.

So why hire me?
You think you’re simply hiring a photographer.
What you’re actually paying for is:

  • Someone who can create images to your brief and will meet your requirements.
  • Camera equipment.
  • Lighting equipment.
  • Computer equipment.
  • Image editing software.
  • Hundreds of hours of education and training that were required to operate all of the above effectively.
  • University education and £1,000’s in student loans.
  • An assistant to help carry and set up equipment.
  • Data storage and back-ups.
  • Studio space or location fees.
  • Transportation costs.
  • Office rent and expenses.
  • Promotion and website costs.
  • Telephone and internet services.
  • Income tax.
  • Business insurance.
  • A living wage so I can pay for food, housing, and all other living expenses.

And so much more.

YES, You can probably hire a cheaper photographer, but like everything, you get what you pay for.
