I'm Lauren McWilliams, Owner and Photographer of For You Photography ™

I set up For You Photography™ with the aim of putting my passion for photography and people together. I specialise in brand and event photography for businesses across the North East.

My background is a little different. I completed my degree and Masters in Criminology and the Criminal justice system at Northumbria University. My career choice was to become a Probation officer but unfortunately while building my experience it became clear that I needed to look at a new career path for my own health.

Photography was always a hobby of mine, from travelling and taking a thousand photos, to taking photos for family and friends at events and weddings. I decided to try a new route and make it a business.

I didn't want to turn my back on my passion of people and have spent time working with the likes of  VODA in North Tyneside and Sector connector to still work within the community and with people. This leads me to being given an amazing opportunity to run the #iwill group, a group of young people aged 14-25 to build digital skills such as photography, filming, design and more to support social change for several months.

I am so proud of my achievements so far and feel so privileged to be able to combine my passion for people and photography together within my business.

Photography is an art.

It’s about finding EXTRA-ordinary

In an ordinary place

Connections & Creativity

Meet the photographer and build a connection before booking anything.

When you're choosing a photographer the market can be quite daunting however it doesn't have to be. I believe that just like choosing your new pair of shoes or the perfect dress you would usually try them on before you committed to buying. Why should this be any different when choosing your photographer? Whether you are looking to book an hour for headshots or a full day branding session it's important to have a connection with the photographer.

It's equally important for the photographer to get to know you too. Having a good understanding of your needs, important facts will go a long way when it comes to working together. Every client is important to me and I want you to feel confident when working together, I will do everything we can to ensure that happens.
