Professional Headshots

Professional headshots and business portraits that strike the perfect balance between professionalism and approachability play a vital role in making a lasting impression.

From conducting individual headshot sessions captured in my home studio in Ardingly to photographing corporate headshots taken in expansive office settings, my services are tailored to meet a variety of businesses. They are ideal for boosting your online presence on websites and social media platforms such as LinkedIn.

Corporate & Commercial Photography

My Corporate and Commercial Photography encompasses a wide range of services tailored to meet the visual needs of businesses and organisations.

As well as capturing professional headshots and business portraits for executives and employees, I document corporate events such as conferences and workshops, showcase office interiors and create images for annual reports and company websites. Additionally, corporate photography may involve capturing team-building activities, group shots, and environmental portraits that reflect your company’s brand identity and values.


School prospectus photography has become my forte, blending my passion for children’s portraits and commercial photography.  I take pride in delivering exceptional school prospectus photography that will showcase your school, college, or university to its fullest potential. My expertise lies in capturing images for both independent and state schools across Sussex, Hampshire, Surrey, Kent, and London.

Capturing family portraits brings me immense joy, and I feel incredibly fortunate to have the most fulfilling job imaginable – creating natural family photography and captivating children’s portraits that will be cherished for generations.

While most of my family photo shoots occur at the comfort of your own home, I’m brimming with alternative locations if you’re looking for something different.

Photography Courses

My photography courses and workshops for children and teenagers are highly sought-after and take place in and around Haywards Heath, Brighton, and Crawley. These courses cater to various skill levels, ranging from beginners using phones and iPads to more advanced classes suitable for GCSE Photography students.

Additionally, I provide personalised one-on-one children’s photography and adult tuition.



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 a Sussex Portrait Photographer.
