Thanks for visiting!  I’m Alex, a family and commercial portrait photographer based near

Haywards Heath in West Sussex.

My photography style is natural & relaxed and often incorporates my love for the outdoors.  Each photoshoot is created uniquely around your own family or business – I’ll be guiding you all the way and I promise we’ll have fun as we go!

As well as being an established children’s and family portrait photographer (I’ve been running my business over 10 years!) I offer a wide range of commercial photography – personal branding and professional headshots for both adults and children as well as school prospectus photography, food photography and party/event photography.  I also offer photography courses for adults and children which are proving to be a huge hit!



Family photography is all about having fun and I feel privileged to have the best job in the world – creating gorgeous images which will be treasured for generations to come.

The majority of my family photo shoots take place at your family home but I’ve got plenty of alternative locations up my sleeve if you’d prefer.

High quality, creative commercial photography will bring your business to life and elevate your branding in a way nothing else can. I have worked with all types of businesses and brands both big and small photographing professional headshots, portraits, personal branding, food photography, products and interiors.

Together we’ll create images that will give you the confidence to show your business off to it’s full potential.


Exceptional School Prospectus Photography to show off your school, college or university to its full potential.  I regularly photograph schools throughout Sussex, Hampshire, Surrey, Kent and London.

Photography Courses

My hugely popular photography courses and workshops for children are held in various locations around Haywards Heath and Tilgate Park in Crawley.  All different levels are covered from beginners using phones and iPads through to more advanced courses suitable for GCSE Photography students.  I also offer photography tuition for adults.

Alex is so thoughtful in everything she does with an impressive eye for detail creatively and technically. From the day of the shoot itself where we were made to feel so at ease, to her beautifully presented personalised online viewing portal, the follow-up consultation with carefully considered advice, skillful technical editing work behind the scenes, and of course, Alex’s expert oversight of the final production process. A truly premium end-to-end experience. I’d highly recommend Alex Rickard Photography if you are looking for family or commercial portrait photographer in Sussex!
