Creative Planning


Our creative team have a wealth of experience in working with businesses to define a creative direction that suits your brand and vision. With an understanding of design and placement, we can ensure photography that compliments your marketing and business objectives. 

What does Creative Planning involve?

Developing a creative brief that details the project objectives including:

  • Creative Direction
  • Tone and Feel
  • Composition
  • Prop Requirements
  • Placement/Use
  • Shot List

Prop Sourcing & Styling


We are often required to create or source almost anything and everything needed to add a sense of realism to a set. This could be something as simple finding 1950’s maple side table, to recreating the interior of a room, entirely in red. Whether we are sourcing or making props we use ingenuity, imagination and creativity to create the look you need.

Working with tools is also a large part of set building. Creating a temporary frame work, welding, painting, using carpentry tools to adapt existing items, by distressing them, or applying other effects. All of this work requires careful planning ahead of the shoot but can sometimes be called upon reactively as a shoot evolves.

What does Prop Sourcing & Set Creation involve?

Understanding the brief and setting the scene for the photographer:

  • Research and styling knowledge.
  • Health and safety.
  • Building and styling to enable the photographers point of view.
  • Excellent workflow management for preparation.
  • Reactivity and problem solving for unplanned changes.

Post Production & Creative Editing


Post production is an integral part of our work. We take our lead from our client’s brief and factor in our styling, creativity and technical abilities to produce a creative concept and approach. We then combine the process of matching our client’s vision with what happens initially in camera and then digitally in post production, to create the highest quality images that will give your business that commercial edge you are looking for.

Our post production services include:
  • Retouching
  • Colour Correction
  • Creative Editing
  • Distortion and Perspective Correction
  • Logo Integration
  • Web Optimisation
