Colin Hawkins is a professional commercial photographer based in Bath, South West England and has been working directly with clients and with advertising and design agencies for over 20 years.
I shoot stylish, emotive, imaginative images of people and products in the studio or on location often to communicate a concept.
The projects I am involved in are successful through efficient and thorough production, bringing together all the people and talents needed, combined with many years of industry experience. I deliver high-quality photography on budget and on time.
I’ve been fortunate to work with a broad spectrum of industries and subjects for some inspiring clients. My photography has appeared in a large number of adverts, magazines, books, brochures, publications and web sites. I’ve worked on commissions to shoot everything from fashion to pharmaceutical, music to museums, people and even the occasional pig. I’ve found it fascinating, creatively rewarding and usually pretty good fun.
After assisting some of Londons best photographers I started my photography career drawing on my Art experience since I had a degree in Fine Art. Initially I was shooting musicians and the occasional fashion story for press and editorial features in London in the late 1980’s spending many years in the dark room. After a period spent in NYC this progressed to shooting record covers and press images for bands and musicians. Gradually I started getting more advertising and design work and around the same time I joined Tony Stone picture library, which is now Getty Images. My images now feature in national and international campaigns and publications.
I moved my studio and family from London to Bath in 2001 and I’m now based in the glorious Wiltshire countryside.
I don’t shoot weddings, christenings or anything else where I might need to wear a tie.
