"The designer-maker community's favourite photographer"

"London's best product photographer"
Seen PR

I have worked with a huge range of designer/makers and small businesses over the years, here's some examples and a few kind words from them.


Glass photography

Michael Ruh Studio

"We hired Yeshen to photograph our glass tableware collection, on the recommendation of a craft marketing consultant we were working with. She thought very highly of him and suggested we bring him on board to shoot our whole collection. Glassware is not an easy shoot and we liaised a great deal before we went ahead and hired hired him. Yeshen answered all our concerns and took on board the brief. The results were fantastic and we are delighted that we worked with him. We look forward to working with him again."

The Z List

"Arriving to the photoshoot with over 100 products and just a vague idea of what we wanted could have been daunting if it wasn’t for Yeshen’s calm and methodical approach. After a full day of shooting in Yeshen’s beautiful studio, we walked away with hundreds of images that we could have only dreamed of. There’s no doubt that we’ll be returning for all future photoshoots."

"The lifestyle and background shots of the collection are fantastic and it's vastly improved the appearance of my store. From consultation through to the shoot, they were both on hand with advice and it was great to watch Yeshen in action and benefit from Mudgha's wonderful styling. They're very accommodating and have an excellent eye for product photography. I highly recommend."


"Yeshen is wonderful to work with - I would recommend him without hesitation. He is quick, calm, precise, and knows his craft. He is also resourceful, always looking for ways to make client's lives simpler. I love that he works as a one-stop-shop, taking care of the entire process start to finish, including styling."


Self Style

"We are absoloutely thrilled with the results of our first ever photoshoot with Yeshen. His experience and efficiency meant we really got the most out of the day and we learned a huge amount about how shoot preparation is key for both photographer and client! It was also invaluable as first timers to work with Mugdha, Yeshen's stylist as she really guided us through the process and helped us make quick decisions on the day!"

Jules Hogan Throw

"The shoot with Yeshen was fantastic. The photographs have improved the appearance of my shop, helped with publicity and eventually will increase sales. The images give a story to the pieces. It was great watching him in action and I think my own photographs have improved too."



"Yeshen is a thoughtful, innovative and skilful photographer whose patient and efficiency means every shoot is incredibly productive. Yeshen always delivers excellent work within a tight time frame and is an absolute pleasure to work with."


"Yeshen was very professional, respectful and easy to work with. It was very relaxed day and we achieved a lot in the session. I'm really happy with the results and have had great feedback about the shots. Thanks Yeshen!"

Thank you again for such exceptional service with excellent digital images and website.  I am extremely happy with the results.

Stolen Form

"Achieving strong, striking and satisfying photographs of your own products or work is not an easy task. But neither is employing a photographer to do it for you. These were my beliefs before meeting Yeshen. However, within hours his professional, down to earth and inclusive approach quelled these misconceptions and put myself and my business partner completely at ease. Consulting closely with us throughout the whole experience he took our ideas and executed them with absolute mastery of his art. I would recommend Yeshen whole heartedly to anyone wanting to showcase their work in the best possible light."

The photos are great... he has a really good eye for layout and knows exactly how to draw attention to your product whist keeping the photos interesting and unique.
