Over the next couple of weeks we’ll be featuring a great collection of portrait photographers in London nominated by our readers. Choosing that special person to photograph your family can be a daunting experience. Hopefully our roundup will help make the decision process a little easier. View our first new nominees here. Our next two nominees are Shariq Siddiqui and Jo Campbell.
Shariq Siddiqui repertoire includes editorial, portrait and travel photography.
“My style is simple, straight and human. My best portraits have a few factors in common: rapport with my subjects, composition, obsession with finding the best light, and creative timing.”
Although Shariq loves black and white, he embraces colour – a nod to his birthplace India and the vibrant colour he remembers growing up there.
“I find the best photographs of my clients are made where they spend the most time as a family – which is unlikely to be while standing in front of a white background! Working with natural light can be incredibly liberating, and I get excited when the forecast says ‘partly cloudy’.”
Clients can look forward to a relaxed, fun few hours spent enjoying being themselves, while Shariq snaps away creating long lasting memories.

SWEETHEART STUDIOS by JO CAMPBELL
Kingston based Jo Campbell specialises in lifestyle photography. She set up Sweetheart Studio just over four years ago and since then has been lucky enough to photograph lots of babies, children and families on a regular basis. Last year she branched out into wedding photography.
“As a mum, I really appreciate the value of photos as our own little bundles of joy will be starting secondary school this year! It only seems like yesterday that she was taking her first wobbly steps, so I’m very pleased to have lots of photos to document the transition.”
Most photo shoots she does are on location—whether it’s in a local park, a client’s home or elsewhere, she has also recently opened a beautiful studio right in the centre of Kingston upon Thames perfect for newborn shoots, headshot sessions or studio shoots for kids and families – and also isn’t weather-dependent!
