About Michael Cheetham Photography

Would you like a stylish modelling headshot that might open doors to an exciting future? Are you planning your wedding and need a reliable photographer to help preserve beautiful memories of your wedding day? I’m Michael and I’m a Brighton-based photographer specialising in portraiture, events, and wedding photography for over 4 years. I’m also available for actors and corporate headshots and I also offer a wide range of retouching services. I’m passionate about every aspect related to photography and have extensive knowledge about composition, lighting, and techniques to add flair to my images. If I had to choose a word that best describes my services and myself, I would use ‘approachable’, above all else. My service starts well before the shoot: I will take the time to study a brief or listen to your needs to get an idea of your style so that I can capture the most from our time together. If it’s a portrait, I will make sure you are at ease in front of the lens, and I will strive to embody your personality and highlight your best features. At events, my focus is to capture the most significant moments of joy and excitement as well as every single detail that makes your event or wedding truly distinctive. I usually operate within East Sussex and London to support developing businesses, theatres, and artists through promotional photography. I work remotely and will gladly travel to your desired location with my gear. I take great pride in my work and some of my most recent prominent clients include The Tower of London and BBC. If you’re looking for an enthusiastic, reliable, and professional photographer to provide you with images you will be proud to publish or display in your home, please contact me. I’ll be more than happy for a quick chat about your project and discuss how I can bring your vision to life.

Ben M.'s review on Jul 28, 2019

I can not recommend Michael highly enough. The photographs turned out superbly plus he was very reasonable and accommodating with any extra requests. He has now done wedding photos for us and some newborn pictures!

Event Photography
John H.'s review on Dec 23, 2018

Michael was a fantastic photographer for our staff Christmas party. He managed to capture the vibrant feel of the evening and the quantity of pictures he provided ensured that every member of staff has some great shots. His professional approach leading up to the event instilled in my great confidence and on the night his approachable nature ensured that all the team willingly involved him in their celebrations.

Anca P.'s review on Nov 27, 2018

My wedding was such a lovely experience, I was feeling so many emotions but the way Michael did the pictures was so natural that at some point I didn't knew he was there to feel the pressure of the camera on me on us. We are very grateful to Michael he came into our resque in a such of moment if need and his pictures were beautiful, he capture the life moments of our union and love together with family and friends. We have beautiful pictures smiling and laughing. When ever I look back on them I remember those moments ! Michael is a gentle soul and a reliable professional, we had a very good communication with him and a very positive vibe so I recomend him ladies and gentlemen with all my heart !

Michael always delivers quality and has produced some truly beautiful shots. It has been a pleasure to work with him on multiple occasions and I look forward to working with him again in the future.

Portrait Photography
Stephanie B.'s review on Nov 17, 2018

Michael was very professional and friendly. He even managed to get my four year old to sit still and have his photo taken. Which is a major achievement. The quality of the pictures is amazing and you can really see how at ease everyone was. I will definitely use him again and recommend him to my family and friends.

Event Photography
09 L.'s review on Oct 18, 2018

Michael created the image used on 09 Lives poster, fliers, 2m banners and social media for The Changeling. The show went on to be BBC Radio London's Pick Of The Week and to be SOLD OUT! Michael listens to the brief and is very open to ideas but he also brings many of his own so is a great collaborator. He is very conscientious about making sure you are happy with the results and the cast all found him very easy to deal with. He was also our production and rehearsal photographer. I also know several of the cast went on to use Michael for their own projects and professional headshots.

Headshot Photography
Lil W.'s review on Oct 18, 2018

Michael has worked on several theatre projects with me over the last 3 to 4 years. I have found hijm both instinctive and technically accomplished and he has always delivered exciting and beautiful images. He understands how a poster needs to work for the production and although good subjects, actors are not models, and his communication with them has always led to the very best results. I have one of his images (the poster from the London production of Lost Souls and Lunatics) on my bedroom door. A beautiful homage to Bacon.

Headshot Photography
Chris F.'s review on Aug 21, 2018

Michael did my first headshots when I joined BBC News in 2015 and I asked him to come back to do my updated ones in 2018. Michael made me feel super relaxed when taking the pictures, had a good eye for detail and made sure I looked smart, and offered lots of creative suggestions on lighting and backgrounds to get the perfect shot. All I had to do was turn up and try and look presentable! Really happy with my photographs and Michael also offered to make edits where necessary.

Sophie D.'s review on Aug 19, 2018

Michael photographed our wedding at Brighton Town Hall and we are delighted with the results. He was attentive, efficient and brought a friendly air of professional to the day. We feel very fortunate to have had him as our photographer and can't recommend his services highly enough.

Thomas F.'s review on Aug 03, 2018

Michael very kindly photographed our civil ceremony in London, and he was wonderful. He is highly professional, he was quick to respond to emails, and completely understood what we wanted from him, and most of all took excellent photos. We didn't want posed photos, and wanted a more relaxed style, but in fact some of the posed photos we inevitably took turned out to our favourites, and that's down to Michael. My wife and I met with him a couple of weeks before, and walked around the locations with him, which was wonderful, and on the day he was very professional. And afterwards he was very quick in sending through the photos Thank you.
