Simon Wiffen

Leeds based photographer specialising in family, lifestyle, portrait, commercial and event photography

I’m an award-winning photographer, husband, dog owner, record collector and dad of three.

I have a passion for creating beautiful images that tell a story, capture a unique personality or simply document a moment in time to be remembered forever. I won the Unsung Hero Award at the AP Awards 2020 in recognition of my work on 47 / A Life With Cystic Fibrosis.

Located between Leeds and Wakefield I’m perfectly positioned to provide photography across the whole of Yorkshire and the surrounding area, including Leeds, Wakefield, Bradford, York, Harrogate and Sheffield. I offer a personal, tailored service so if you’re looking for a photographer get in touch and I’d be happy to discuss your specific requirements.

Family Photography

I have a passion for creating beautiful, natural images that tell a story.

As a dad of three, I understand only too well how quickly children grow up. My passion has always been to document these precious moments with high end fine art style photography.

My relaxed, documentary style family portrait photography captures those precious moments of your lives. I combine storytelling images with beautiful portraits to record memories that you and your children will cherish forever.

I offer a range of family portrait photography packages so take a look and get in touch to book your session now! If you’d like to gift someone a photo session or a discount package then you can purchase a gift voucher in my shop.

Lifestyle Photography

As a lifestyle photographer I work alongside picture editors, journalists, marketing managers and PR companies to provide beautiful photographs to help tell their stories. In addition I also work directly with businesses to provide commercial photography for websites, social media marketing, advertising and printed promotional material.

Portrait Photography

I love photographing people, and pride myself on my ability to build up a rapport and help the subject relax, allowing me to capture their true personality. In 2018 I published 47 / A Life With Cystic Fibrosis – A book of beautiful, intimate portraits exploring the reality of living with cystic fibrosis. In recognition of the project I won the Unsung Hero Award at the AP Awards 2020.

I’ve shot a wide range of business and corporate images including headshots for website, LinkedIn and social media profiles. In addition I’ve shot editorial portrait photography for magazines and website features as well as a series of portraits for the NHS to support their organ donation campaign. These portraits were exhibited in Leeds City Museum’s iconic Broderick Hall.

Commercial Photography

As a commercial photographer I shoot a wide range of photography for marketing, advertising, exhibition stands, brochures, annual reports and online. I work closely with business owners and marketing managers to ensure your photography showcases your business and services perfectly.

Event Photography

Whether you need photography for a corporate event, conference, networking event or an awards ceremony I can help you capture the atmosphere perfectly.

As an event photographer I work with businesses, PR companies, marketing agencies, conference organisers and charities to document their events. My informal documentary style of photography allows me to blend into your event and capture moments naturally and effectively.

My published book of portraits

Each subject offers an insight into their attitudes to life and their condition up to and beyond the median predicted survival rate of 47. I’ve also worked on a number of other projects.
