About Graham Lucas Commons
Graham is an advertising and commercial photographer specialising in people, portraits and the built environment. He does not see these varied subjects as obstacles to a uniformed vision, however. Instead, he focuses on the advantages of being a multidisciplinary photographer, including the ability to adapt and incorporate diverse influences. Simplicity, clarity and timelessness are values that resonate deeply within Graham’s photography and work practice.
Graham’s wide-ranging experience, attention to detail and knowledge of effective photographic techniques allow him to complete a shoot from concept to post production. With each project, Graham is personally invested in every detail and achieves consistency across all stages of the process. His friendly and professional style enables collaborative working with advertising agencies and directly with business.
Graham has had the honour of working with many esteemed clients who have commissioned him to fulfill their photography requirements. A selection of recent testimonials can be seen below:
Tom Hawkins – Designer & Partner of Firecatcher
“As a design studio we place a great importance on photography and never underestimate it’s impact on a project. For us it is essential to work with a photographer who shares our vision and who wants to strive for the same level of quality, creativity and professionalism in order to meet the high standards we set for ourselves on each and every project, Graham is that photographer. The quality of his work speaks for itself, with a strong eye for composition, each and every image is carefully crafted with an understanding of his profession that means the images are a pleasure to work with.
From our initial meeting to discuss a brief, through to shooting on the day, working with Graham is an efficient experience and one that always leaves me feeling confident about the success of each and every project we work on together. I’m always very honest with our clients when I emphasise just how important photography will be, whether it’s for a website, brochure or advertisement, it’s the viewers window to their business and therefore it is essential that they present a highly professional picture of themselves to their prospective clients. Therefore I would not hesitate in telling them that investing their trust in Graham is an investment in their business that they must take. It’s always nice to work with someone who has a passion for their work, but it’s a pleasure when they are also genuinely enjoyable to work with.”
Paul Russen – Senior Designer of Beetroot Creative Communications Agency
“The majority of my editorial design work requires strong portraiture. Whether I provide the most detailed or loosest of briefs Graham achieves this hands-down. He’s great with handling (my) clients – therefore I trust him to work independently with projects. I’ve commissioned him repeatedly over the last few years – he’s definitely one of my ‘go to guys’ – and will continue to do so in future.”
Adam Buss – Chief Executive at Derby QUAD Limited
“Graham is a creative, personable and talented photographer. His work is consistently of a high quality and he has undertaken shoots for QUAD with key visiting guests, including David Morrissey and Graham Fellows. I would strongly recommend Graham to anyone looking for creative photography.”
Diane Scigala – PA to the Managing Director at Pirelli Tyres Ltd
“Graham has taken the photographs at our annual Long Service Dinner for a number of years. He readily understood our brief and takes on board any suggestions we make. I would certainly recommend him.”
