Brighton Portraits of Author and Fireman Paul Grimwood

PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHER BRIGHTON | Brighton Portraits Author Paul Grimwood

16 August 2016

Definitely one of my favourite portrait photoshoots of late to produce portraits of author and fireman Paul Grimwood for his upcoming book on firefighting techniques. We wanted two shots; one for the cover which would be of a firefighter (and we introduced a hint of blue-light for the ’emergency services’ feel) and then a rear-jacket portrait – which I wanted strong and commanding. Love these!

“Stunning work! These images have exceeded expectations! You are a true professional at teasing out character and image”

Novelist Portrait of Charlie Hodges Brighton

Delighted to have welcomed in to the Brighton studio the rather charming and extremely entertaining novelist Charlie Hodges who needed some profile portraits for his upcoming new detective novel based in Eastbourne. I was pleased to learn that Charlie has also written for Shaun The Sheep, The Tribe and Dennis and Gnasher amongst many other TV shows. Charlie was a sheer delight to photograph and this shot below was our favourite from the photoshoot. Charlie Hodges’ agent is Shell Land Associates

“They’re absolutely brilliant, Dorian Gray eat your heart out. Once again thank you so much for a fun-filled shoot and amazing attention to detail. The pictures are fantastic, far better than I had dared hope!”

Natural Light Portraits of Writer Jenny Ashcroft Brighton


16 July 2015

The really lovely writer of historical fiction, Jenny Ashcroft popped into my Brighton studio last week to get some natural light portraits and headshots for her agent and to promote her published book (Die Frauen Vom Rose Square) and for forthcoming novels. Jenny wanted a an easy-going portrait and something quirky for her social-media streams. After nailing some studio test shots we decided to try a few natural light shots and got exactly what we wanted! Love these fun spontaneous portraits.

“I had a great time doing the shoot with David; the time in his studio flew. He was so patient, giving me lots of good advice to get the best shots, and really put me at my ease. I’m delighted with the photos… I can’t recommend David highly enough.”

Profile Portrait of Writer, Brighton


18 June 2015


I photographed the writer Tim Bennett in my Brighton studio for his soon to be published book ‘Awaken’. A really interesting guy with an amazing story and his strength of character really comes across in these profile portraits of him. An amazing photoshoot with a lot of really compelling portraits and headshots. 
“David made me feel at ease from the start, the session flew by. He kept the atmosphere fun, professional and focused and captured the energy my writing conveys – a rare skill. I will definitely be using David again in the future.”
