Work is A Portrait

Simon Robertson recorded on 06/01/2023

Simon Robertson is a professional, commercial photographer based in Leeds who specialises in the hospitality industry. He primarily photographs interiors, events, and food across the North of England.

Simon’s love of photography began at age ten when his mum gave him his first camera for Christmas. Simon studied Photography and Visual Arts in his hometown on the Isle of Wight. Then following his dream of becoming a professional photographer he travelled to London, where he met some of the biggest names in the industry.

Among Simon’s clients are multi-million-pound property developers, architects, interior designers, restaurants, bars, and cafes. Simon prides himself on his style and approach which is collaborative and communicative throughout the assignment process which ensures the very best results are achieved.

Today Simon is happiest when he has his camera in his hand. When he’s not working with clients, he pursues his love of urban and street photography.

Simon is currently working on a project with chefs around Leeds called Shooting Chefs.

About the Podcast

Working Hours
The Story of Work in Leeds in the 2020s
What do you do?
Western Studios, Leeds presents Working Hours: a podcast series surveying the people of Leeds on their thoughts and feelings on the topic of work. I want to talk to my city about work. Why do we do it? Do we like it? What could we do differently? What will we? How does work change and how does it change us?
Leeds, the largest city in the largest county on the UK mainland, is a former imperial textile centre and is now a major UK financial centre. This series will document the city’s experiences through Lockdown, Brexit, creeping technological unemployment, new and continuing resource wars, the ongoing dismantling of the welfare state and our accelerating ecological emergency.
If you are in Leeds or from Leeds then help me to reach my target of interviewing 1000 Loiners over the 2020s. Let me ask you, what do you do?
