Shaun Armstrong is a UK-based photographer specialising in observational reportage and documentary imagery.

Welcome to my website - I work closely with commissioning clients to create unique imagery for a variety of needs, from heritage and place documenting, to people and performance reportage and artwork for promotion and display.

This site showcases a variety of commissioned and personal photography projects which, depending on topic, can be licensed, bought as a print, or just viewed as expressions of my work.

PLACES + SPACES

PEOPLE + STREET

Within my photography, be that client commissions or personal projects, I actively observe rather than construct. I find a position, perspective or moment to capture that supports a story, poses a question or just resonates aesthetically. This can include the way people, objects, shapes, textures and light interact; perhaps the workings and lines of a machine, an interesting person or a crowd, everyday patterns within wide streets or the wild, or in the detail of buildings and ordinary things.

All images here, from all genres are shot as found, with no intervention or staging. The only exception would be a posed portrait where, even then, I aim to capture the person as quickly and as naturally as possible.

It’s normal and perhaps desirable, from a number of perspectives, for photographers to focus on a specific genre. But I find that restricting, preferring to express my personal visual style in any situation where I can; this hopefully opens as many interesting and creative doors as it shuts potentially.
