Portrait Photographer Nottingham Simon Tickle


I’m 29, drink lots of coffee and turn moments into memories! I’m based in Rainworth, Mansfield – just a stones throw away from Nottingham itself. My goal is to provide you with exceptional portraits that can be treasured for generations whilst at the same time ensuring you have an unforgettable experience throughout the process.  Please, take a look around this website to discover more about the photography and services I can offer, my guide to pricing your portrait session with me, and the gorgeous hand made products I offer to display your finished photos.  However, please bear in mind that as a lifestyle portrait photographer, all of my photography is relaxed, natural and bespoke – and as such no two sessions are ever the same. If you’ve something in mind that you can’t see online, or would like to discuss some ideas for your portraits please drop me a line. I’d love to discuss the options with you!



Choosing the right portrait photographer is really important! The vast majority of my new customers are referred by family and friends who I have already photographed – something which I believe is testament to the great service and value for money I can offer. Here’s three reasons why my previous clients chose me.

1. My style. I love creating portraits with a natural, relaxed and timeless feel and which tell the true story and character of the individual. If you like the images dotted around this site then you’ll love your finished portraits!

2. I’m super patient! If there’s one thing I’ve learned over my years working as a photographer, it’s that not everyone likes being photographed (myself included!). I like to spend time making sure you’re comfortable and do everything I can to make the photo shoot fun and engaging. If we over run slightly that’s no problem – you’ll never be rushed!

3. I’m personable. I like to think that i’m a fun, friendly and easy going individual who is easy to get along with.


I believe my customers should have the final say on the service I offer. Here’s what some of them had to say. My thanks go to everyone who takes the time to send me feedback – it’s always lovely to receive.

I’m completely thrilled with the photographs that Simon has taken! Simon rose to the challenge of photographing a grumpy teen and two live wire children and really captured the most beautiful photos! He was patient, professional and the kids loved him which is reflected in the photos!
