Neil Bedford

Neil Bedford likes to leave very little to chance. He plans his shoots down to the last detail and is meticulous in conducting research and gathering reference material.   

Born and raised in Bradford, he still splits his time between his hectic South London base and the peace and quiet of Yorkshire where he finds it easier to plan upcoming projects. Trained at the London College of Fashion, he pays close attention to how tone and colour combine for creative effect – it’s this distinctive look that unites his diverse portfolio.

Two of his ongoing collaborations reflect Neil’s versatile skill-set. His pictures of Kasabian, created with Amsterdam based artist and designer Aitor Throup, present the band in a fascinatingly intimate way, while his shoots for the much-revered slow living journal Kinfolk show off a more conceptual side of his practice. 

Clients include Apple, Beast, Ben Sherman, Brick Magazine, British GQ, Burberry, Canterbury, Clash Magazine, C.P Company, Dunhill, ES Magazine, Ellesse, Farfetch, ICON Magazine, i-D, Jack Wills, Jigsaw, Kinfolk, Laud, Lululemon, Mr Porter ,Nike, O2, Rapha, Riposte, Sergio Lorenzo Pizzorno, SoccerBible, Sony, The Telegraph, Thread, Visa and The Women’s Football Association.
