I’m always going on about the importance of using professional photos for your book covers, jackets, and social media profiles. And if you’re producing special edition hardcovers of your books, with inserts and other details, you’ll want to have your book professionally photographed as well. If you’re in the London area, I highly recommend Paul Knivett Photography in Surrey for both book shoots and head shots.
Paul is highly skilled in both portrait photography and book photography. He’ll create great shots, and he’s very generous with his work. Unlike other photographers who will deliver just one photograph for the price of your photo shoot, he’ll give you every single shot that turned out well. With my personal photo shoot, that meant that I had 90 photos to choose from! I chose just one to use online, but I can keep them all.
He’s a pleasure to work with, and really makes you feel comfortable in front of the camera. Plus, in my experience, he’s always delivered ahead of schedule…often sending me a link the very same day for downloading photos.
