About Suman Zaman - I am a children, family and event photographer. I live in Surrey and photograph here and the surrounding counties.
About me: Did I start from a young age and hone my photography skills at an elite institution? Nope. I kinda fell into photography after my son, Aaryan, was born. Like all new parents, I started taking photographs of him on my Nokia N95 (ahhhhh, whatever happened to the great Nokia?). Then wanted a camera with better quality and moved onto DSLRs and became hooked. I take my camera to pretty much every personal engagement.
Family: Wife (lover of handbags, shoes and makeup); Son (nice and obedient); Daughter, rebel with a cause (see photo above).
Books: Jack Reacher books (even liked the movies); Tom Clancy; John Grisham; Peter F Hamilton.
TV/Movies: Star Wars (not 1-3!), Batman (Nolan trilogy), Indiana Jones (1-3), House of Cards, Suits, 24, Star Trek, Toy Story Trilogy.
Hobbies: Football, walking, cricket. Podcasts - you can find a podcast whatever your interest in life! For those times when i need time to relax and think about life, I love mowing the lawn or cleaning the car.
Favourite Quote: I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character. - MLK Jr
I live in West Byfleet, Surrey, which is near Weybridge and photograph in the surrounding areas; Woodham, Pyrford, Cobham, Woking, Guildford and all around Surrey, Hampshire and London.

Choosing a photographer can be a very difficult decision. Even when a friend has recommended someone, we still have reservations. I can't choose the perfect photographer for you but I am more than happy to speak to you to see if we are a good fit for one another. Here are a few reviews that recent client's have left me.
"Suman was very professional and easy to communicate from start to finish. We absolutely loved the photos he took for my daughter's christening. What a wonderful memories captured in photos." - Len, Surrey
"Suman combines a highly professional approach with a wonderfully personable and good humoured manner. He is simply a superb individual who worked extremely hard on my baby daughter's Christening Day. Needless to say, Suman was unfailingly calm and he brought a real sense of reassurance to us when things were a little hectic. Prior to the event, Suman communicated with us very frequently to ensure that he was exceptionally well organised. I highly commend him as an outstanding photographer who worked tirelessly throughout the afternoon. Whilst being an 'invisible' photographer, who in no way disrupted the Serive, he also offered the opportunity for family and friends to have group photographs and this was very popular. Thank you ever so much, Suman, for capturing our little daughter's Christening Day. We consider ourselves to be very fortunate to have have found Suman Zaman Photography via Poptop and we cannot commend you highly enough." - Mollie, Berkshire
"The photos were absolutely amazing and worth every penny, thank you so much for all your help on the day, and the lovely memories we will have forever!!!!" - Sacha, Hampshire
"Suman is absolutely amazing! I booked him in blind faith and I am happy I did. He came on time as promised, I never had to chase him to check where he was. My timing was poor as the event overran but Suman patiently waited and over performed. The photos are absolutely beautiful. So much to rant on about but the icing on the cake was the 'photo booth' idea which left my friends with lasting memories. I would definitely recommend Suman and can't wait to work with him in the future." - Bili, Berkshire
Suman was great! He arrived early and captured every single precious moment from my sons first birthday. He interacted with all the children and guests, and worked with me to make use of the time we had in order to get the best photos possible. I would 100% recommend Suman and I will most definitely be using him again. Thank you so much Suman. - Merissa, London
"brilliant. a. Really pleased" - Janet, Middlesex
