What we do
We deliver 12 broad areas of service and here we outline what each of these include. Many of our clients use a mix of services and return to us time and again – which we believe is the best commendation we could ask for.
Don’t forget to visit our galleries to see lots of examples from our full range of photography and video work.
Outstanding commercial photography
Whether it is a time-critical media shoot that requires quick thinking and newsworthy images, or a long-term commission with a detailed brief for timeless images, we bring our creativity, flexibility, resourcefulness – and the very best equipment – to every project. Based at our studio in central Glasgow, we provide commercial photography services across Scotland and throughout the UK. We travel further afield too and will be delighted to discuss your international photography brief. We hold full public, employers liability insurance as well as professional indemnity.
Architecture & interiors a specialism
Architectural and interior design photography make up a large part of our work. Alan’s years of experience and passion as an architectural photographer and his enduring ability to capture the essence and personality of a building and its locale has resulted in an extensive collection of commercial and domestic imagery taken throughout the UK.
Image is everything
Powerful photographs can set the tone, tell a story, promote a message, sell a product. As well as architectural and interior photography our photographic expertise includes commercial, editorial, aerial, portrait, lifestyle, location, advertising and product photography. We work with a full professional Canon kit and a whole host of lenses and lighting to give high quality, hi-res digital images and panoramas.
Film & video
We produce high-resolution videos for a range of purposes, from a mini film for a social media campaign to full coverage of an event or a corporate video. We work with you to establish how much support you require and can manage the entire process when needed, from arranging scripts and filming live interviews to providing voice-overs for documentaries.
We use top end DSLR cameras, which create a cinematic look and feel and allow for creativity with depth of field. Audio is captured on external recorders then edited together with the colour-graded footage in our post production studio where we add graphics and royalty free music as required.
Post production & imaging
In the fast-moving world of digital photography, professional commercial photographers also have to be expert editors and imagers. With advanced-level experience of imaging and retouching we carry out all our own post production work in-house, ensuring attention to detail and the very highest standard every time. We take the time to edit images one-by-one to make sure you receive a print-ready, high-end collection. When it comes to image manipulation we can put things in, take things out… and even shake it all about if the occasion demands!
Whether it’s an event, exhibition, bridge-lift or construction project, time-lapse provides a startling and innovative way to show off your project. We can ensure your project stands out from the crowd by creating some stunning effects with our specialist time-lapse equipment. We film with up to three cameras to capture different viewpoints. Back at the studio, we can cut the footage together and introduce stills, video footage, interviews or graphics to create a dynamic and imaginative film.
If it’s stock images you are after, we have thousands. Forget the clichés of stock images being stale or out of date – our images are current, regularly refreshed with new work and immediately available for licensing in a variety of formats.
We photograph extensively in Scotland’s major cities, and our streetscapes and lifestyle photographs are always in high demand. Contact us with your requirements and we will pull together a bespoke collection for you to select from.
Image library management
Pictures are precious commodities and it can be frustrating when you can’t find the ones you need quickly and easily. Managing an effective image library takes a lot of work, and that is where we can help. Our professional image management system means we can host and manage your image library, setting up an easy-to-navigate local library on your system or an online solution to access remotely. We can also provide printed contact sheets, PDFs and discs in the post. However many images you have, we can help. Give us a call to find out more.
Creative website illustration & image content management
We are experienced in website illustration and content management systems. We believe images are crucial to building your brand and communicating to your visitors, and our image expertise gives us the edge in website management. We work in a number of bespoke content management systems as well as the popular choices such as Umbraco and WordPress. Find out more by giving us a call for a chat.
We can project manage your entire creative project, from conception to delivery. With years of experience managing multiple-location shoots, video projects and multi-party shoots to name a few, there’s (almost!) nothing we haven’t seen before. We source locations, sort legalities, pull together a creative team, source models and do whatever else is necessary to bring your vision to life. Read our blog all about our production management services for more information.
Styling & art directing
Whatever level of styling or art direction support you need, we can work with you to provide it. We can help develop your ideas and map out your creative direction, or work with your creative team to provide the images they need to deliver your brief. Likewise, if you’re looking for locations, props, models, hair and make-up or third party images, we’ll source them for you and negotiate clearances and approvals.
Core skills that make a difference
In addition to excellent technical skills, never-ending enthusiasm and a fair smattering of creativity, we believe that our clients come back time and again because of our adaptability, resourcefulness and responsiveness. We build close working relationships with our core clients, working with them to plan major photography projects, shoot videos, manage image libraries and above all, identify the images which they need for their particular marketing, promotion or information project.
