Hello,

my name is David Ovenden and I am a freelance professional photographer providing a wide range of photographic services to individuals and businesses. I specialise in portraits (for social media, family and business), theatre, fashion and commercial photography but I can help you with all your photographic requirements. I offer studio or location shoots, and with my portable studio I can create studio quality shots in your own home, office or at your function.  I can cover all areas of London and the South East, or further afield on request.
