Specialising in Commercial Photography

I work with creative people, amazing spaces & awesome brands.

As a photographer & stylist I work on location, photographing products in beautiful lifestyle scenes, capturing makers crafting a living from their sheds & studios, and photographing the interiors of shops, studios, restaurants and hotels.

From my bohemian studio in rural Rutland I also teach photography & styling online via my Photocraft® photography e-course to a global audience of creative people who make & sell lovely things.

If your business holds a story, I can help you to tell it!


Creating captivating imagery that tells the story of  a brand, product or service, working with both startup & heritage brands UK wide.

Art Direction

Working with established brands on styling and art direction to bring their imagery into the modern age, while remaining true to their roots.


Educating on the subject of product photography in a digital age through fun & friendly guest appearances at craft, blogging & business events around Europe.


Years Experience as a pro photographer

Go behind the scenes

 A little hoard from a fab new boutique called Tactile, you must head over to my Facebook page and see the live video from yesterday when I took a look around  Facebook.com/thelyndseyjames #shopping #leicestershire #marketharborough #turlangton   This beautiful long pendant with a glass bubble of petals arrived in the post for me with a little note...'Thanks for being an amazing teacher x' ...what a gorgeous gift it's so heart warming to know my #Photocraft students learn so much that some of them are moved to send presents in the post! They are lovely reminders of my students that I carry with me ❤ #teachergift #jewellery #jewelry #naturelover #petaljewellery #gift  It was one of those warm hazy breezy days today, dreamy! ☁ We met with friends and walked through fields of gold before finding a nice picnic spot by a lake  then we finished up in the village pub  The weekends are all about adventure and going where the breeze takes you! #summersundays #lazydays #relaxed #longwalks #picnic #villagelife
 Came across this snap while looking through our guest's wedding photos, must have been captured shortly before cake cutting... it was such a beautiful golden hour that day  #memories #woodlandwedding  Morning! Loving these golden fields around us at the moment ☁ #countryliving #peace #openspace #littlerunsbigworld #running #breathe  I love this snap from a few years back, my moma hanging out her washing over the lavender on a sunny morning ☀ it smells divine, a week to go and I'll be back in France for #familytime picnics in the garden, paddles in the river #frenchfarmhouse #ruralfrance #summerdays #lazydays
 Today's dreamy landscape looks innocent enough but that hill is a killer to run up, I needed the photo break at the top! #home #countryside #littlerunsbigworld #runscape #running #whendoesrunninggeteasier  Built in 1788 this folly is called Fort Henry, apparently the eccentric earl enjoyed boat battles/war games on the lake with his friends. We just thought it was a nice spot to pause for a little picnic.  Check out these wonderful collaboration bags combining the silk 'Escape and Evade' RAF maps of @homefrontvintage and the soft leather goodness of @natthakur - a project called *Carried with Us* that tells the stories we carry with us of the people who have shaped who we are today. The Peter James limited edition backpack is named after my father who served very briefly in the RAF as a youngster and ended up doing a little more than he anticipated in an unexpected turn of events! Read about his adventure in the RAF over at @homefrontvintage (photo by HomeFront Vintage). Dad certainly shaped the person I am today, I was only 25 when he died very suddenly but I like to think I still make the most of the lessons I learned from him in those precious years. I often talk to the clouds during tough moments in business, 'he would know what to do' I think as I look up in search of an answer...we never quite got onto lessons in business. Hopefully he would think I'm doing good considering I'm just guessing at it! We are thrilled to have a bag named after him, there are other beautiful bags too you should absolutely check them out if you would love a special gift for a loved one who serves in the forces. #vintage #RAF #heirlooms #carriedwithus
