Film & Television Photography

By Hertfordshire Commercial & Event Photographer Zoe Cooper


Film and Television stills is another exciting area I have found myself photographing. My job allows me to photograph people in all different capacities. However, on these occasions I have photographed people pretending to be other people.


Behind the scenes stills photography is important for several reasons.

Most importantly for promotion, with many projects needing financial backing. Initial promotion of stills and behind the scenes are often used to gain further funding, as well as interest in the project.

Furthermore, the journey of a film project is used to advertise and promote and market the film before distribution.

Unlike my other photography, moments in film and television are scripted. Hence I know what’s coming next!  The anticipation of the unknown, is replaced with certainty of what reaction is coming next.

I am fortunate to have photographed several film and television projects in London. Each time working with a great group of Directors, Actors, Camera Operators, and a huge team working behind the scenes. And a snippet of a few of these projects are below.

Do you have an upcoming Film or Television project that you need stills photography for? If so get in touch to see how I can help you with promotion.
