Hi There! I’m Leon – and welcome to the Leon Britton Photography website.

I honestly appreciate that choosing a Liverpool photographer can be an absolute minefield. I work in Merseyside, Manchester, Cheshire and the North-west – and to help you decide if I am the photographer you’re looking for, here’s a bit about me.

Firstly, I’m a lively and outgoing photographer in Liverpool with a passion, especially for people and portrait photography; I try to capture the emotions in every picture. I am always looking and anticipating the right time to capture the moments that matter forever. I wouldn’t describe myself as a story maker but rather a storyteller. My style is all about telling the story that couples and individuals want to tell in an engaging, artistic way. Passion, Calm or Exciting; It’s your story to share, and I am there to capture it.

I have worked for over fifteen years in the photographic industry, including photographic studios, professional photographic retail management, and running a photo processing lab with many high-end clients, including Bentley Motors. I have also worked extensively In live entertainment as an award-winning vocalist and as part of a leading Merseyside entertainments agency.

Recently I have been lucky enough to receive several awards. In 2021 Leon Britton Photography was named as the 2021 Artistic Wedding and Commercial Photographer of the year Award for Merseyside in the Northern Enterprise Awards. I was nominated for and won Merseyside Headshot & Portrait Photographer of the year 2022 in the Business Excellence Awards. In the 2021/2022 Prestige Awards, Leon Britton Photography was awarded Commercial Photographer of the Year for Manchester and the North-West of England. In the 2022 Global Wedding Awards, we were awarded the title of Best Family-Run Photography Business, in the North-West England region.

Please feel free to browse my website and if after a look at our images and reviews, you would like to work with us, or have any questions, please get in touch. I also work with a network of photographers in and around the Liverpool area so if I am unable to support your photographic project, I may be able to offer a recommendation.

Nothing but good things to say about Leon & the services provided! I hadn't ever had headshots taken before so was very nervous for the shoot, but Leon was very friendly and made me feel comfortable straight away! He was very engaging and I has a wonderful time during the shoot. The images were shot beautifully and I am so happy with the quality of the editing. I would recommend 100% to anyone and especially to people who have never had headshots before and are feeling a tad nervous as Leon was great at creating a calm and nurturing environment.

What a photographer! I needed some new headshots & I hadn’t had anything like this done professionally before so was feeling very nervous about the whole thing and unsure of what to do. But within minutes of getting started Leon made me feel right at home and brought me out my shell and had me feeling really comfortable! I was so impressed with my final results as well, they’re everything i wanted and more! Leon is a fantastic professional and I would love to work with him again!

“Your pictures should be the perfect opportunity to show you at your very best. Working together with you, our main objective is to capture and deliver the images you want, and hopefully Love”

Even though I am a Liverpool based Photographer with a photographic studio in the North-west (not far from the Liverpool Docks), I’ve taken thousands of photographs all across the UK. I’m a member of the Guild of Wedding Photographers. I am also a firm believer in continual self-improvement, and after completing an Fda in Photography, I am now completing a Ba(Hons) photographic degree as a mature student in Merseyside.

As a Liverpool portrait, headshot and wedding photographer, I pride myself on being confident, experienced and able to get the best out of every situation, and this also applies to to commercial photography we understake for our clients.

Losing my day job in Mid-August 2019 became an opportunity for a change in direction.  After discussion with my wife I approached Hugh Baird regarding their photographic degrees, and two weeks later I began on the course.  In that time I have learnt an immeasurable amount of skills and techniques and become a much better and more disciplined photographer all round.  During my time on this course I was able to open my own photographic studio and have since been awarded several awards:  -	Best Artistic & Commercial Photographer of the Year Merseyside (2021)
-	Headshot & Portrait Photographer of the Year North of England (2022)
-	Commercial Photographer of the Year North West (2021/2022)
-	Best Family-Run Wedding Photography Business North West (2022)  It’s not been an easy journey, but had I not lost my job, had I not popped into the Hugh Baird Open Day, and had I not signed up for the Digital Imaging and Photography Foundation degree with BA top up – I would not be where I am right now.  I am doing a job I love, and one I didn't think I would be doing about three years ago. Opportunity and support have made this happen and I am eternally grateful.  My final exhibition starts on Thursday 5-8pm and then 10am-3pm until 25/5.  Thank you to everyone that has helped me not only with this project, but also with all of the projects I have undertaken over the last three years, and of course to the fantastic tutors Dave Lockwood and Tadhg Devlin.  I have had the pleasure of working with some truly fantastic and creative people whilst on my course, some of whom will also be exhibiting their work also, not only in photography but also in makeup and fashion design.  @hbucphotography @hughbaird @uclanuni @sefton_council @openeyegallery #hughbairduniversitycentre #university #degree #photography #student #studentlife #exhibition #loa #positivity #finalyear #bahonsphotography #liverpool #igersmersey #degreeshow #graduation2022

Happy Star Was Day !
May The Fourth Be With You...

In the studio there are many times when I have to take a step back and admire some of the outstanding talent of the people I work with.  Take this image for example - as part of a university character project for @abbmakeupartistry who is a make up and special effects artist coming to the end of her FdA with @hbuccreativemakeup @hughbaird  The transformation between the person that walked in and the person we photographed was tremendous and her work speaks for itself  #mua #makupartist #photography #photooftheday #studiophotography #liverpoolphotographer #liverpool #character #model #makeup #like #portrait #studentlife @uclanuni @thesecretwh #hughbaird #makeupartist #hughbairduniversitycentre #beauty #muah #undiscovered_muas #muas #makeupaddict

Just another day in the studio.... where models from a future guided by A.I. fashion designers come in for a photoshoot...  Apparently if you zoom in and scan the QR code it will give you next weeks lottery winning numbers 😂  Another brilliant collaborative shoot with fell students from Hugh Baird University Centre in what is very sadly becoming my final couple of weeks as a student  Photographer - Me

OMG - look at the size of them chopsticks!!!  Only kidding - obviously they're drumsticks (not knitting needles either) - and whilst we didn't want to get the full drumkit in the shot, having them in the image still allowed us to represent the artists instrument of choice.  Sometimes minor props and elements help to add so much more to a portrait without taking away too much of the focus.  #drumsolo #drums #drummer #drumming #drummers #drumstagram #instadrums #drummersofinstagram #drumfam #drumlife #drummerlife #drummerlove #we_love_drums #drumuniversity #explore #drumkit #drumset #drumsticks #music #musician #liverpoolphotographer #liverpool #liverpoolphotographer  If you're looking for a Liverpool Photographer and maybe a studio shoot session - get in touch. We specialise in headshots, portraits, weddings and commercial photography.
Bob Ross famously said "we don't make mistakes, we just have happy little accidents" and when shooting this image two of the remote lighting strobes never triggered leaving us with this beautiful silhouette image of a mysterious woman in red...  #liverpoolphotographer #liverpoolphotography #liverpoolphotostudio #portrait #red #woman #model #photoshoot #bondwomen #jamesbondwomen #silhouette #gun #mysterious #photographer #liverpoolbusiness #instagood #photography #photooftheday

Had a great, satisfactory experience. Leon was very talented and patient in capturing photos, suggesting themes, poses and backdrops, and also did an exceptional job in editing them as per specifications. I would definitely recommend the service especially for a professional requirement.

It was truly amazing to work with Leon! I pretty much knew exactly what I wanted going into the session, and he was super helpful in making my visions a reality. A super chilled vibe in the studio and I felt completely at ease, and he also had a big range of different backdrops too! Helpful from start to finish (from greeting me outside to help my carry my stuff in, to walking me out to my car at the end!) Would recommend to anybody!!

Leon makes the usually awkward experience a great one, keeping you on your toes ready for the next photo. The photos themselves are as professional as they come with great prices and deals that make you think money well spent. Highly highly recommend!

I normally hate being in front of the camera as I'm so used to being behind it. Leon made me relaxed and actually enjoy it as well as taking excellent photos. Definitely recommend.

All the staff at Mode needed headshots for our website which Leon arranged with minimum fuss. He made everyone feel at ease during the shoot (all 21 of us!) everyone had a laugh and felt really comfortable and the shots are amazing too! Highly recommended!

Had actor headshots taken towards the end of last year. I'd never had headshots taken and was feeling nervous. Leon made me feel comfortable and he took some really great pictures. Communication was efficient and I received my new headshots quickly! Will definitely go back! ⭐
