School, Family and Portrait Photographer

Dorset, England

Amelia Johnson Photography

Hi there!

I'm a School, Family and Portrait Photograper based in North Dorset. I've been a professional Photographer since 2009, and have had the opportunity to live and work all over the world. 

I grew up in Dorset and moved back here a couple of years ago. I now photograph people and schools all over the South of England including London. I've worked for tiny start ups and national newspapers. Highlights of my career include shooting a book- Hannah Martin's 'Makeup' (HQ/Harper Collins), photographing 50 Cent and having my work on billboards all over the Middle East. I've got some stories to tell from the last 15 years!

 If you can't see what you're after please do get in touch, I also take on more commercial briefs.

What can I do for you?

I shoot School Photography for Prep, Primary and Secondary Independent and State Schools. 

Schools use my work for marketing, advertising, prospectus and websites. We work closely together to create a brief for our shoot to ensure we capture images that make your school stand out from the crowd. Creative imagery is one of the best ways to show prospective parents what makes your school different. I work with schools all over South England including London, Surrey, Wilshire, Somerset, Hampshire and Dorset.

I photograph Families, Maternity and Babies

My shoots are an adventure. All about exploring in the outdoors. Spending time as a family. And at the end you'll have a beautifully curated set of images to cement the memories you've made together. You choose the location. North Dorset? The Jurassic Coast? Moors Valley? I have worked with families throughout Dorset, Wiltshire and Somerset.

I am a Portrait Photographer.

 Do you need editorial portraits for a publication? Environmental portraits to tell your brand's story? Or an impressive looking LinkedIn headshot? Get in touch so we can discuss your requirements and bring your ideas to life. I've shot celebraties and business people for The Financial Times, The Telegraph and FTSE 100 companies.

I undertake portraits in Dorset, Somerset and throughout the SouthWest.

How do we book you?

Give me a call or fill out my contact form. I'll reply as quickly as possible. If i'm on a shoot I will reply at the end of the day.

Where are you based?

My studio is in a beautiful village in an area of outstanding natural beauty in North Dorset. I'm about 20 minutes from Shaftesbury. But I shoot mostly on location and travel to London and throughout Somerset, Hamphire, Wilshire, Surrey, Oxfordshire and Devon to work with clients.

What makes you different?

My background is in highly technical, commercial advertising photography. I've been the photographer on sets with a crew of 20! I bring this experience to the table and can quickly understand exactly how you want your end result to look, and translate that to imagery. Whether it's following brand guidelines, bringing your family's spirit to life in pictures or telling a story, I have the skills to adapt my style to your needs.

Do you use a studio?

If that's what you need! I can work on location, in schools, offices, the countryside... wherever you like. I have a studio near Shaftesbury, Dorset. Alternatively I have studios throughout Southern England with whom I work. Most of them are in bigger cities like Bristol, London, Bournemouth and Southampton.
