About Graham Baker

Graham Baker Photography, Welling, Bexley, KentThe Ethos of Graham Baker Photography


I'm a photographer and image maker; I approach my work with the ethos that photography is more than just pointing and shooting. Photography is an art and I strives to make my art the best it can be.

Photography is about understanding light, composition, colour, design and style; it's about understanding equipment and their capabilities to create or extend what we see; photography is about applying all of these elements to levitate a 'snap' to something more special; ultimately it's about creating something emotive and personal whatever that may be…


I’m Professional Photographer based in Welling, which is in the London borough of Bexley and I cover many different aspects of photography; including, weddings, portraits, commercial, events, and other photographic projects.

Some people may argue that I’m a ‘Jack of all trades and an expert in none’ because I do cover a wider range commissioned work; however, I believe my trade is ‘photography’ and the skills that I employ from one type of work to another compliment each other; that’s what I’m an expert in.

To maintain client confidence, I am a qualified Licentiate member of the SWPPSociety of Wedding & Portrait Photographers, a qualified member of the Guild of Photographers in both general and wedding photography categories; and I’m also a member of the WPPI  - Wedding & Portrait Photographers International. This confirms  my work as being of professional standard; and demonstrates my ability to create images of excellence.

A Licentiate qualification is awarded to photographers who have submitted a panel of photographs of a chosen speciality, which are then judged by highly qualified, respected and experienced photographers from the photographic industry. For my commercial work I also belong to the  SICIPSociety of International Commercial + Industrial Photographers.

The Societies and Guild stipulate working  to high professional standards and codes of conduct, that are put into place for the promotion of good working practice in all matters concerning the photography industry.

I also hold full Public Liability and Professional Indemnity Insurance.

I can cover commissions all over the United Kingdom (UK) and overseas, but generally my work is concentrated around the  South East London boroughs of Bexley, Bromley, Greenwich and Lewisham; as well as further afield across Greater London, Kent and the South East of England.

Please take time to visit my web gallery, client galleries, or have a look at my News Page for the latest updates.

 

If you have any questions about my work or would like to discuss commissioning me, then please use the contact page to access my email and telephone details.

Many thanks Graham Baker LSWPP QGPP QGWP

Wedding at St Alfege’s Church and The Old Brewery – The Old Royal Naval College Greenwich

St Alfege Church Wedding & The Old Brewery The Old Royal Naval College Greenwich

Even being greeted with strong winds and heavy and rain (some of the worst I’ve experienced at a wedding for a long time) on the morning of a summer wedding in Greenwich wedding, it still  turned out just perfectly!

Starting off at Devonport House for the bridal preparations, I then made quick walk through the rain to the St Alfege Church, where I met with the groom to await the rest of the family and guests arrivals. I have to say, the atmosphere was brilliant; and as family and friends started to arrive, it was clear from their faces and attitude that the weather conditions  were not going to spoil anything about this day. I just loved the fact that the overall feeling was that it just didn’t matter that it was raining at all! Brilliant!

After the ceremony and formal photographs it was another quick dash to the church hall for afternoon tea and speeches;  and whilst everyone was finishing up, I went onto the Old Royal Naval College to look at options in the rain for the couple portraits. But that’s when it happened… The rain just stopped! Perfect timing to take all the photographs we needed without getting wet; and then straight in for beer tasting and dancing at The Old Brewery!

I guess that’s what’s so exciting about photographing weddings. Working the plan, improvising, adapting and overcoming! Enjoy the preview!

Eltham College Wedding

Wedding at Eltham College London

I hope you all enjoy this small selection of photographs from this wonderful wedding and reception that was held in the beautiful grounds and chapel of  Eltham College, Mottingham, South East London.

Probably one of the warmest weddings for me so far this year, however it was still a great deal of fun meeting up with the bride in the morning (Excellent Hair and makeup by Flame Beauty!) followed by a short drive up to Eltham College Chapel; which was a real treat to photograph, being so light!
