Celebrating 10 years of Cactus Images
Let’s start from the beginning…
Cactus Images was founded by Angela Jenkins and Chris Howard, who met during their second year studying for a degree in commercial photography at the University of Derby. Our business started life at the university’s Banks Mill creative studios, before relocating in 2010 to Friar Gate Studios and we have subsequently expanded to our current home in the penthouse studio at Marble Hall.
During the last 10 years, Cactus Images have developed ourselves to be one of the region’s leading commercial photography and post-production studios, specialising in product, commercial, business portraits and food photography.
Through our development we now offer a wide range of services to support and strengthen our photography projects, including creative planning, prop sourcing, styling and set builds.
These fully integrated services allow us to work with a broad client base, which includes local SMEs and national brands such as FujiFilm, Morrisons Flowerworld, Hypnos Contract Beds and East Midlands Trains.
Into the future…
In order to support these core services and business growth, we have recently recruited Laura Parry, who has more than a decade’s experience within the creative sector.
Laura has been responsible for the company rebrand and the development of a new website, which will better reflect the range of services now offered by the team.
”“Our ten-year anniversary has come at a really exciting time in our development, with lots of interesting creative projects for some high profile new clients, together with the arrival of Laura, who will enable us to continue with our expansion plans.”
We’d like to thank all our clients and associates who have worked with us and helped us along our journey.
Here’s to another 10 years!
