Roy Kilcullen


Twenty five years of experience taking award-winning pictures for national newspapers, magazines and businesses large and small.

An ability to apply creativity to a brief and turn it into a beautiful set of images that promote your brand and tell your story.

And perhaps most importantly, the experience to take pictures that let the character of your people and business shine through.

A perfectionist with an eye for detail and a dedication to deadline, specialising in powerful visual content for clients from Marks & Spencer to Triumph Motorcycles, National Grid to Barclaycard.

My photography spans internal and external communications for magazines printed and digital, brochures, websites and engagement campaigns. From corporate portraits to informal and fun features, capturing personality and atmosphere in every shot.

Based in Rugby in the heart of England means nowhere’s too far – I’ll travel from Perth to Poole, Cardiff to Cromer.

I've worked with many of my clients for years and some even decades. Hear from a few of them here.

And see some of the work I’m proudest of below.

“A consummate professional and perfectionist behind the lens, Roy has that increasingly rare ability of always being able to surprise with his pictures.

He always goes above and beyond to cover every aspect of the brief, as well as offering suggestions on how it might work that little bit better.

His skill at relaxing the people involved is a big factor behind the quality and natural feel of his pictures. I’ve worked on scores of shoots with him for more than a decade and he never disappoints.

I always enjoy working with Roy.

Give him a challenge and he’ll deliver to an excellent standard getting the perfect shot, time and time again.

Put him in a yard with a twitchy horse, he still gets the shots and you’d never know there had been any issues.

Colour, quality and composition are always excellent and those dramatic Kilcullen skies are fantastic!

We have worked with Roy for many years now on a wide range of projects and we value our working relationship with him enormously. Whatever the brief, Roy produces striking, powerful images that tell a compelling story and bring the subject matter to life beautifully. His ability to relate to the subject and get the very best out of them, no matter how uncomfortable they are in front of a camera, is second to none, and has resulted in some truly outstanding shoots. The ultimate professional, Roy is thorough, flexible and always, always delivers.

“Roy is a master of his craft and you’re reminded whenever you’re on location with him. His dedication and technical knowledge to get 'the shot' coupled with his creativity and eye for detail, is amazing.

I’ve worked with Roy for nearly 15 years on shoots across the UK and Europe and he’s a pleasure to work with.

I can always count on his professionalism and creativity, his ability to respond to any situation and consistently deliver great work to deadline.
