• Welcome!

    I'm Victoria and I photograph people - at work, in their homes and at events. I have a relaxed and natural style that puts people at ease, so that the photographs capture them at their best. Most importantly, they enjoy the experience.

    I'm based in South East London and work for families and organisations and specialise in social housing.

    If you'd like to know more please contact me on 07748 886354 or at victoria@victoriacookson.com

PlaceShapers photography

It was a pleasure and a privilege to take photographs at the PlaceShapers Conference 2014. PlaceShapers is a network of 100 housing associations and it was great to see some familiar faces amongst the delegates.

Photography of Phoenix’s fantastic Green Man

The Green Man is Phoenix Community Housing’s office and community space. It reflects the social space and community¬†spirit of the former pub that stood on the site and includes a cafe, a training kitchen, a space for public hire and a branch of the Lewisham Plus Credit Union. The building itself was¬†shortlisted in the Small Project of the Year category of the Building Awards 2014 and holds within it so much potential. It is always a pleasure to photograph here and so I thought I’d do a post with photographs of the building itself. These have been used on their website, in newsletters and reports and on a large screen in the reception area.

Photography for housing association budgeting training

I was taking photos at budgeting training for Wandle residents today.

Photography of housing association staff

Today at the Wandle Housing office, I was taking photographs for their next resident newsletters. Real pictures of staff or residents are so much more believable than stock photos and give much more credibility to publications.

Photography at housing association cultural event

I was back with Wandle today at a cultural event/ consultation and had my first taste of sweet rice. Delicious.
