Award-winning commercial photographer

Tim Pestridge Commercial Photography

I'm a full-time commercial photographer, videographer & CAA approved UAV drone pilot (PFAW) continuing to work to COVID-19 government safe distance measures, based in Exeter working across the South of England, with over 20 years experience in the creative industry and 15 years full time as a qualified photographer. I work solely with companies and organisations creating images and videos to promote their products, people and places.

Along with a BA Hons degree in Design Illustration & Photography from the University of Plymouth, I'm a qualified member of the BIPP. I'm DBS checked for working with young people in colleges and universities, and hold a valid CSCS card for working with architects, civil engineering companies and construction projects.

If you would like to talk about my availability or rates please do contact me. I look forward to working with you!

“Tim fitted in to our Honda team immediately”

“I chose Tim as our drone pilot cameraman and stills photographer to work with our existing videography team for a day’s commission in Somerset making a video about Honda's off-road motorbike experience. He fitted in to our Honda team immediately, and was able to nail all the aerial shots, as well as getting us some great still photos too. Highly recommend Tim as a creative - especially as he rides and rates Hondas!” Nick Bennett, Digital Content & Social Media Manager, Honda (UK)

Testimonial: South West Water

"A pleasure to work with.."

“We needed a photographer that could be relied on to capture a series of high quality images in a range of settings and conditions, including industrial workplaces where there was limited time available. Tim’s technical expertise and ability to quickly put people at ease ensured he got the results we were after. His professionalism, flexibility and eagerness to make the most of any situation make him a pleasure to work with..” - South West Water

Client testimonial

"He has a great understanding of how to get the best out of people"

"We chose Tim for the Gregory Distribution shoot after the excellent work he did for us with South West Water. He has a great understanding of how to get the best out of people, and when you are dealing with ordinary folks and not professional models, it's essential to have that calming focus - but still be able to coax the very best out of who is in front of the camera. He did this with great aplomb during the Gregory shoot. The pics have been extremely well received by all involved. I would certainly recommend Tim to anyone who's looking to produce the highest calibre of photography." - AB Group (Design Agency)

Client testimonial

"We chose to work with Tim for the photography and video"

" As part of our recent rebrand we needed photography and video for our new website. We chose to work with Tim for the photography and video as he offered us the best combination of value and quality. Another benefit of using Tim for both was the end result for both photography and video had a consistency that we think may not have been achieved had we chosen a person for photography and another for video. We where very impressed by Tim's rapport with all our team, putting them at ease, making the day much more enjoyable and far less stressful than they had anticipated." - D2 (Design Agency)
