Featured Work:


From headshots to lifestyle, I offer corporate/environmental portrait photography for businesses and personal brands.


I provide coverage of stories and current events for local journalism outlets. Here, I am able to offer imagery with my distinct style to enrich the story being told and make your publication stand out.


What is intended to be the best day of your life, can often feel like the busiest! My documentary style of photography ensures that the focus stays on the couple, and captures all of their favourite moments.

Events and Performances

From parties to awards and festive events, I provide fun and immersive photography to capture the atmosphere of an evening. 

I am passionate about the arts and supporting the work of performers/creatives.  I also love capturing the energy and fly-on-the-wall memories that truly make a performance. Low-light? Who cares!


Video is becoming an ever more important aspect of branding and content creation, as such, I am pleased to be able to offer video coverage of your event/branding need. I also offer a video editing service.  Should you need a filmmaking service, I would be delighted to recommend some of my peers.

Great photographer and a really nice guy!

Director, Corporate Illusion Ltd

Somerville Captures guarantees a professional yet friendly service. I initially contacted Joe for more photos for my social media business, and they were FANTASTIC!
I felt as though Joe really understood my ideas on how I’d like the photos (and videos!) to look. After the session, Joe was very open to any tweaks I had and delivered the finalised media in a quick time too.
Would thoroughly recommend to others – thanks again, Joe!! All the best for 2023.
