Peter Austin


Welcome to Alternative Images. I specialise in corporate photography and video production. I am commissioned for various projects, ranging from web site images, business portraits, annual report photographs, public relations, conferences, awards dinners and events, alongside marketing material and product shots.

I provide support at the initial planning stage that carries to the final delivery. My aim is to help your business stand out from your competitors. Alternative Images ensures that any photography commissioned by PR companies, corporate clients, publications or agencies is executed smoothly and efficiently. My commitment is to meet client expectations on time, within budget and with a fast turnaround.

A picture speaks a thousand words and I firmly believe that businesses cannot afford to overlook the impact that powerful imagery can have on their corporate identity. As an experienced and versatile commercial photographer and videographer in London, I strive to bring my clients images that perfectly convey their company values.

I will regularly travel across the UK for corporate photography assignments. I typically undertake a wide variety of jobs from day to day – for example, I may be commissioned to take employee headshots for a company in the morning, and then be scheduled to photograph or video at a conference, charity event or company dinner in the evening. Whatever the requirements of my client, I bring a creative mind and unrivalled technical knowledge to each of my projects, and it’s this commitment to excellence that truly sets me apart from other editorial photographers in London.

There are a number of reasons why a professional body would seek the services of a commercial photographer. Image-conscious business owners appreciate that creative corporate photography can set their company apart from the competition and help establish their brand as a leading force within their sector. They may also want to employ a corporate photographer to help them tell their company’s story through a creative channel that remains immensely popular, despite the rise of interactive media and more advanced web-based applications.


Companies use video for an extremely effective marketing tool, especially with the growth of social media sites and wireless communications. At Alternative Images Video Production, I can supply the solution for your project with the logistics, scripting, shooting and editing stages to produce the final product.

I will discuss your requirements with locations, lengths and shooting styles. Portrait head shots ‘Talking Heads’ are used to convey the message directly to camera. These are usually short in length, no more than one minute but address a particular subject or business issue. They are often used on company web sites to allow large audiences to receive the message that they want to convey.

Video is used for various applications. I film company training, corporate meetings and informal events for clients to upload as video content for their websites. It promotes your business for guests who cannot attend, a video gives a good overall indication of what happened at an event. Those who attended can review the content of presentations within their own companies, after an event.

As a videographer I have seen the need to adapt to our client requirements to be able to shoot video as well as stills at the same photographic session to be able to offer a wider service. I have invested in the most advanced camera equipment with DSLR being a versatile way of shooting video in HD quality. This equipment, being small and able to shoot in low light situations enables discreetness at all times.

As a complete package to the video services I also have the latest Apple Mac computers running one of the industries leading video editing programs Final Cut Pro to handle the editing of your shoot post event or on site. This combined with the availability of a 3D graphics service to enhance your project to the maximum effect.
