Alison Petty

Documentary Photographer

Landscape | Portraiture | Events + Activities


My name is Ally and for the last twenty years or so, I have been following my dream working as a documentary landscape, music and events photographer.

I currently reside in Brighton, UK.
With the seagulls. Beside the sea.

I have been privileged to travel in some of the most beautiful parts of the British landscape, capturing distinctive images of the Lake District, Snowdonia and Cornwall. I have also been making the most of the many photographic opportunities presented by my home city. Having accumulated a substantial portfolio which expresses my own inimitable style, I can now offer these photographs for sale through my online shop.

In my other life, I specialise in photographing within the music industry and have spent much of my career documenting bands and musicians from around the world including Bryan Adams, Counting Crows, Cary Brothers, Nell Bryden, Thea Gilmore, Tom McRae, Nada Surf and Rocco DeLuca.

Photographing the interaction that occurs between people and the environment within which I am shooting them, I seek to capture moments often unseen by the casual passerby. By not interfering or manipulating the scene in front of my lens, I am able to produce images that are an honest and true representation of the world in which we live. My photographs have been described as intriguing, evocative, whimsical, and thought-provoking.

I am forever inspired by the work of the Magnum photographers, alongside the work of photographer Anton Corbijn.
