Xavier Clarke is a music, events and portrait photographer.
I’m based on the south coast of England, and I have easy travel links to the rest of the country and the world! I could bore you with details of my passion and love for photography which started when I was around 12 years old. Or how I’m only as good as my last shot, but you don’t want to hear about that, well until we meet to discuss your next shoot! I will just give you a flavour of who I am to whet the appetite before we meet. I’ve lived all over the UK and have also spent a lot of time in Paris, which was nice (not Nice – although I will be shooting there later in 2019 so watch this space). Despite working in a variety of roles in my career (from running bars to data analyst), photography was always in the background and I went from enthusiastic amateur to professional photographer – almost by chance (but with a lot of hard work thrown in). I’ve had some pretty amazing experiences as a professional photographer and have had the chance to shoot some of my heroes from TV and music, as you can see below. I offer a variety of services, including (but not limited to): Promo, Events, Portraits, Live music, Product shoots and more. For more information and pricing details, please feel free to drop me a line by messaging me email or call, details below.
