About James Stewart – Commercial Photographer

self portrait of james stewart photographer

I am a Sheffield based commercial and sports photographer and I have been photographing sports, mainly mountain biking and various motorcycle events since school. I competed in many off-road events which gave me the inside knowledge of the sports and hopefully that comes across in my work. I have worked for many companies and publications over the years, you can see some of that work in the portfolio and published sections on this site.

I have been a full-time professional photographer since 2004, since then my range of work has diversified immensely. My work has included photographing moving trains for a Northern Rail billboard campaign, Sir Ian McKellen collecting money in a bucket for Sheffield Theatres, Jess Ennis-Hill for The Children’s Hospital Charity, the Mercedes Vito sport brochure and cycle industry work for brands such as Intense, Cervelo, Focus, Troy Lee Designs etc, etc. I’ve even spent a morning photographing dogs in flat caps for the Grin Up North Festival advertising campaign. The list is wide and varied!

Being based in Yorkshire and specifically Sheffield, right on the motorway network makes it easy for me to quickly get to jobs throughout Yorkshire, Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, Cheshire and Greater Manchester. Most of my work comes from these locations but I am happy to travel throughout the UK and beyond.

I’d love to hear from you, please get in touch and if you’d like to see some more of my work the Instagram feed gets plenty of updates!
