A quick note on COVID-19 ... While in Lockdown #3 I am still working with product, landscape and location photography but sadly not face to face appointments. I will give updates on how, with the right measures, we can get face to face photography going again in Tier 3 or below.
The world keeps on turning, our families keep on growing and our businesses still need the best kind of promoting - I am taking provisional bookings from February 15th 2021, alternative dates will be offered if, for any reason, shoots cant go ahead.
So do get in touch to with inquires.

Deborah is so professional with lots of patience for the little people, and lots fantastic ideas on how to achieve the best photographs possible. Her studio is very welcoming, even with all of the Covid protocols in place it was still a calm and relaxing environment and a fantastic atmosphere. I definitely recommend Deborah Johnson photography and look forward to doing family shoots with her in the future!

Deborah took some wonderful product shots in her studio for me which were exactly what was needed for marketing and advertising. I also ordered prints which came back quickly and are brilliant quality. I would highly recommend her for any of your photographic requirements plus she is a pleasure to work with.

Deborah met me at a location to take my photo. She put me at ease and worked with me to get the best pose and image. She was professional and friendly. I would definitely recommend Deborah and would use her again. I was very happy with the photos she produced.
