Simon Finlay Photography

I am a multi award winning photographer with over 30 years of full time employed professional PR, commercial, press, action and advertising photography which has taken me around the world on commissions for national and multi-national companies.


Covering some of the biggest news stories and directly working for some of the worlds most iconic brands in the world i have built up a reputation for great images, efficient delivery and, as important as everything else, a great working relationship with both the client and subject. I become fully immersed in the commission and use my inquisitive mind to find out more about the subject and develop the images to get the best from the situation. i can turn around PR and press imagery as quick as possible to allow clients to reach their target market in the fastest possible way and fully appreciate deadlines.

I have many interests and qualifications which often compliment my photography including private pilots license flying regularly, UK and international motor boat helming and navigation qualifications, advanced scuba diving qualifications and a keen interest in historic motorsports. i have a full UK passport and driving license and love to travel for work and pleasure.


My commissioning clients include Harley Davidson, Harley Owners Group(HOG), Lotus Cars, Archant Dialogue, Army Cadet Force, Centre Parcs, Jays, Archant, Broads Authority, Band and Brown, Tribe PR and i have had work published around the world by the UK and international newspaper and magazine press on a regular basis including The Times, Telegraph, Sun, Mail and Mirror Group as well as many type specific magazines and journals.
