Hi there and a very warm welcome to the John Gillender Photography website. I'm so glad you could stop by and I hope you'll take a look around.

I'm an experienced freelance photographer based in Tyne and Wear in the North East of England.

I'm passionate about my photography and producing high quality, memorable images for my clients. I take great pride in providing a top quality, personalble service at very competitive rates.

I absolutely love what I do and I gain a great deal of satisfaction when I see my images being used for their specific intended purpose eg. in a local newspaper, a company website or brochure or ' big style' in an office or school open space. 

I like nothing more than getting alongside my clients and finding out what ideas they have and then working out a plan to capture images to match their brief and exceed their expectations. 


My core business these days is predominantly involved in producing high quality, impactful images for PR, marketing and promotional purposes.

There are so many areas where a professional photographer can help you to achieve your objectives, and I'd love the opportunity to be your photographer.

Whether you're a start-up business needing to make people aware of who you are, your products or services, or a well established business in need of a simple 'sprucing up' of your tired old website or brochure imagery, I can help you.


I work with a number of local and national companies, these are just a few of them:


Persuasion PR


New Tyne West Development Company

Prince Bishops Homes,

Vehicle Lease and Service Ltd


I also shoot for a number of local Schools, both in the primary and secondary sector, producing images to help them with their promotional materials, ie Prospectus and Website imagery. I am also able to supply them with large bespoke photographic panels for displaying in corridors and open areas to help inspire the children and to wow their visitors.


I also offer wedding photography and can capture your Wedding day with packages ranging from just 3 hours coverage for £300 to the whole of your special day up to your first dance. I can also supply you with a beautiful, bespoke digital storybook album, with parents' albums to match and gorgeous little handbag albums for your parents and bridesmaids to keep handy. Feel free to call me if you'd like to chat and get further information and to see some examples of my work. I'd love to chat with you.


I can also help you if your business has a strong local identity and you require images specific to your location for inclusion in your promotional materials,website or for hanging in rooms,offices or reception areas. 

Commissions also undertaken.

Please feel free to contact me via the contact e-mail or if you need to contact me urgently then please call me and I'll be happy to discuss your requirements.
