Capture your best self

If you are looking  to have your portrait taken, you are almost certainly wanting to have your best self captured.

My passion is photographing people and places and making images that - like you - are special and extra-ordinary.

So contact me if you are looking for a photographer who will capture your best self, whether it's to hang on your walls, put on your social media, feature in your corporate literature, or to give to your nearest and dearest.


Some examples of my black and white portraits …

What you can expect


You should anticipate a really enjoyable shoot in which you feel comfortable and at ease - as well as appropriately 'fed' and 'watered'.

The shoot may be studio based, at your place, or on location.

There may be a pre-session meet up to discuss what you are looking for and how we might work together to best achieve it.

You should feel the process is about you.Your suggestions and your feedback will always be welcomed

You can choose from a series of 'set' packages or we can develop a customised shoot that meets your specific needs.

We can do a typical 'portrait' type shoot, or do portraits as part of a different genre - for example with a fashion, lifestyle, architectural or street orientation.

You can bring as many outfits as we have time to shoot

The final images may be in black and white, or colour, or, most likely, a mix of both.

You should end up with a set of stunning images.

I want you to leave as a very satisfied client who feels enthusiastic about recommending me on to others.

Depending on the 'package' you select, or what we agree:

You can choose whether to do your own hair and make-up or we can use a specialist

You can choose to have as many finally edited images as you want or need

You can choose to have prints made (and framed) of your preferred images, either through ourselves, or by yourself later.

So choose a package and approach that best meets your needs and budget - and / or call me to discuss options.

Eric Schneider

I am a London NW3 based photographer.

An architect (and a creative management consultant) by background, I have been passionate about photographing people and places since I first took up photography as a schoolboy far too many years ago.

As well as portraiture, my specialist interests are in fashion, art, architectural and street photography

More examples of my work can be see on and on instagram: @ericschneiderphotography


"I have had many photo sessions in my life … they have never quite captured what I was looking for … many times falling very far short of my expectations. Not so with Eric Schneider … He put me at ease with his warm, controlled and calming personality. In no time at all I was enjoying myself with playful poses and laughter feeling as if having my photograph taken was what I did for a living. And the results? They were perfect. Eric managed to encapsulate the essence, the exact look and style that I was looking for. I was amazed at how good they all came out - truly amazed! And extraordinarily pleased. My only problem now is how to pick the best of all these brilliant pictures. I would highly recommend Eric to anyone wishing not only to have perfect photographs, but tofeel really good about themselves. I will most certainly be using his services again”

Adele Jameson, The Wlll Bureau

" I am so pleased with the results! You have done a great job!”

Junia Djojonegoro

“Eric, these are fantastic!… I like them all. Its hard to choose which ones I like best. You did a fab job… an excellent photographer!!"

Marsha Grant

"Such a pleasure to work with Eric. Not only is he a wonderful photographer, he was also very considerate throughout the shoot. A true artist in every sense, he's willing to listen to ideas as well as express his own ideas. We got some beautiful shots"


“I was nominated for an award that would … lead to high media interest … and needed to have flattering professionally photographed images of myself to go with articles already being written … I chose Eric to photograph me… he asked me exactly what I wanted … and talked me through how he intended to achieve it… I felt very comfortable during the shoot and I’m extremely pleased with the CD of colour and black and white images Eric produced, He captured me exactly the way I wanted to portray myself. I will definitely be recommending Eric to my friends, clients and business associates”

Yemi Osunkoya, Kosibah Couture Bridal & Evening Wear

“I just checked my emails on the pc and saw the photos, I love them! There are no imperfections on the skin and i love the angles and the colours. Thank you!!” 

Solange Hein

“The photos are absolutely beautiful! I really, really like them. Thank you very much for removing the bags under my eyes and all the rest of it - it makes me look 10 times better … But honestly, I've never seen myself photographed so beautiful. You did a great job, thank you once again!“ 


"Working with Eric on my photo shoot was a very pleasant and stress-free experience. The time just seemed to fly by, and I'm extremely pleased with the end results. He's a wizard with the camera and has an excellent eye for capturing both the moment and the personality of his subjects."

Mitzi Szereto, Author, Blogger, Mitzi TV creator/presenter

“Thank you so much for these pictures! I am so happy with how they turned out! Seriously, they're amazing!” 

Dan Baker

"Eric is a photographer extraordinaire. I hired him to take a series of photos of me, primarily for my new book … and for my website. (He) has unquestionable abilities for turning a sow’s ear into a silk purse. He’s produced an outstanding series of photos of this challenging subject. Furthermore the service Eric provided was outstanding … for a very reasonable price. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him … My recommendation to anyone is if you want to get shot, get shot by Eric Schneider”

Graham Price, Abicord

Alice Elizabeth

"Your intention to capture the essence of me in my various roles was a total success .…your creative and relaxed approach to the shoot was very refreshing, despite my own difficulties in relaxing for the camera. You worked patiently and intuitively to capture that intangible quality necessary for my Shiatsu profile shot … you encouraged these different qualities to come out of me at various times, using a variety of means to engage that part of me… you were committed to getting the best photos from the shoot possible, and as such any time-pressures you may have had became irrelevant."

Simon Henderson

"So hard to choose as so many are amazing! … Dress on the stairs look is literally Art with a capital a, everyone who's seen them loves them, … the money shot is the yellow and grey background one. Been told by many it looks like a Chanel advert Thanks again - so so happy with the results”

Syreeta Sims

“They are great… love them all … I can't wait to send them to my agent …”

Kez Raleigh

"Extremely knowledgeable and inspiring Eric was a great pleasure to work with. Only after couple of hours he became one of my favourite photographers for a lifetime. I can’t recommend him enough"


"I had SUCH a brilliant shoot with. He has a unique architectural eye for images making his pictures works of art rather than just pretty portraits and standard fashion photography. That said, he definitely has style and his clear interest in colour and fashion definitely showed! Furthermore, Eric is just a lovely, down to earth guy and so easy to work with. He went out of his way to make me feel comfortable and offered me advice and support throughout. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for something a bit different and eye-catching"

Miranda Langley

"I was so fortunate to be able to shoot with this one of a kind, truly original photographer. … We managed to meet before hand so we both knew what we were aiming for. With him was stepping into a different dimension of modelling, as we were aiming at creating something challenging, alternative and more conceptual for a fashion shoot. I truly believe that what he sees through the lens, is something unique to his eyes that no one else perceives, even if it is there. He truly challenges the perception of the ordinary which made me really excited about the shoot and fully engaged. Not only that but most of all he is a very welcoming, kind and gentle person, easy to get on with and that will put you at great ease. The shoot was in his spacious home studio and he was prompt in offering me food and drinks thorough the shoot …Thanks very much Eric!"


"I had the most wonderful shoot with Eric. He is incredibly welcoming - I met him at his house / studio and he immediately made me feel welcome and also had great coffee which is always a plus! We sort of just went with the flow and i am so happy with the results- he got the pictures back to me so quickly and i am so impressed with them! Highly recommended!

Isobela Lugosi

"I had a shoot with Eric … and have only good things to say. The shoot was relaxed , Eric is professional and full of ideas. The images are beautiful … Highly recommend"

Tessa Lopez

My promise

Photography is my passion.

I am always looking to achieve something extra special, extra ordinary.

And I also get a kick out of having very satisfied clients.

So, when we work together I promise that it will be a really enjoyable experience which will capture the best of you and deliver a set of photographs that you will be delighted with.

If you are not happy with the shoot, you keep none of the photos, and I keep none of your money (except to cover expenses).

Simple. No questions asked.
