I’m Paul Ligas, a commercial photographer living in Ledbury, Herefordshire. I started taking photographs when I was a child with an Instamatic camera from my parents. They gave me an SLR when I graduated University, and over decades I’ve developed a real love for capturing the way I see the world.
Having learned photography using film, developing and printing my own images, I learned valuable lessons about light, how it works, what emotions it can bring out and how that can make a viewer really feel the image. Working now in digital allows me greater freedom to explore and create striking photographs for my clients.
Turning this passion and knowledge into a business more than a decade ago was a dream come true – I could now focus my love of photography with my desire to help other people. Working for clients and creating images that help them to get noticed really fills me with energy.
I’m a naturalistic and natural light photographer. I create photographs with a genuine sense of warmth that stand apart from the overly lit, overly edited images that can seem so distant from what we see. I get great satisfaction from hearing my client’s say: “this is exactly what we needed”.
Websites are now our high-street shops and window shopping has become web browsing. Beautiful, story-telling photography can help you get visitors to your website and help to make more sales. My free consultation allows me to understand your business and what you need from the photographs I take for you. I'll work with you or your marketing team to match your branding or help in the process of creating that branding.
I understand that professional photography can be a bit of an investment for smaller businesses. With many years of experience, I'll guide you through the photography session and provide you with a friendly and timely service. I want to exceed your expectations and create a long-term relationship that helps your business grow.
My specialities are product photography, lifestyle photography, architectural and property photography, food, portrait and event photography. I help small and medium sized businesses across Herefordshire, Worcestershire and the West Midlands. I’m the official photographer for the internationally renowned Ledbury Poetry Festival and some of my clients include Haygrove Limited, a multi-national fruit grower headquartered in Herefordshire, JB Gaynan, creating handmade jewellery for decades in Ledbury, Herefordshire’s Westons Cider and the Herefordshire micro-distillery Haven Distillery.
