APS  Photography

Hi I`m Andy Shears MRSC and APS Photography is a commercial photography business which is studio and location based.

I offer my clients a professional and friendly service to help them tell their stories using a photo journalism style.

I am experienced in model portfolios, portraits, advertising shoots, and product shoots for both print and web, these can either be arranged in the studio or on location at competitive rates Portfolio days at your preferred location, home studio or outdoor shoots are available depending on what your requirements are.

Company portrait days, where I set up a background and studio lights on your premises, this can be a very cost effective way of getting a lot of staff photographed in a day.

I am based in Northamptonshire with a small home studio equipped with strobe or continuous lighting and UV lights, I also have access to a number of local studios to work from including a large natural light one. 

I am available within the UK for location work, with the first 50 miles of travel free if overnight accommodation is required this is additional to my normal rates.

Another lovely shoot with the fabulous Andy… he is always a pleasure to work with, completely professional, friendly and considerate. 

Andy always has great communications, sending inspiration images to give an idea of clothing required, and makes sure I am comfortable at all times on the shoot. 

We shot a bunch of different looks in The White Room at NLS, with Andy capturing some brilliant images. He is also really welcoming of input and ideas, which makes the shoot feel such a collaboration of creating work together, and a really productive experience.

Many thanks Andy Smile Very happy to recommend you to others

 Very good first shoot with Andy! 

He booked me at the NLS where we managed to produce beautiful pictures. 

Pre-shoot communication was perfect. Andy shared a moodbard with me that he brought at the studio so we could follow the style he wanted to achieve and we were on the same page! At the same time, he was very open to my suggestions. Amazing collaboration!

Andy was a pleasure to work with, very nice, laid back, professional and organized.

I am more than happy to recommend him!


Andy came along to shoot with me at my Oxfordshire home/garden location recenty

We have worked together a few times now, so I can defo say Andy is a really great guy to shoot with! His pre-shoot comms are super and he is the perfect gent on shoots.

Recommended by me for sure! Thanks Andy Smile
