Plymouth Photographer,Jonathan Haigh specialises in headshots, events and family portraits

It's not just about the images. It helps to have someone who understands business and who is flexible enough to deal with people in a hurry, who have better things to do than having their picture taken. Having worked for large multinationals like GE and BT, as well as for much smaller organisations, I can appreciate the need for minimum disruption to your schedule.


Most of my early career was spent in IT - initially as a programmer, then in customer support, folowed by marketing communications - producing the company magazine, sales brochures and other promotional material. During this time, I had my first darkroom in a cupboard under the stairs in my flat.


This was followed by a spell in corporate video production as a producer and scriptwriter working for both a large corporate and as a freelancer.


Next came soft skills management training - presentation skills and working in teams. Finally,  my most recent expereience before photography was as a secondary school Maths teacher.


I have been a keen photographer since I was a teenager but really started developing my portraiture skills about 5 years ago though a series of short courses at Plymouth College of Art.


Finally, if there is a photography gene, my great grandfather was a Victorian society portrait photographer in London in the 1860s and 70s and my father and grandfather were both keen amateurs!
