Working with discerning brands in developing photography with
lasting impressions that read beyond just an image.


It takes vision to
create the perfect image.
It requires ‘seeing’ how a place or person or object could look.
Creating an image that successfully communicates a brand requires years of experience and a unique
set of skills. Photographers have to combine artistic talent and technical skills – cameras, lenses, and lights – to produce remarkable professional photographs.

Art Directing

An Art Director partners with the photographer to ensure that the creative process produces the best possible images. Skills require a clear understanding and working knowledge of lighting, photo direction and the digital system
and the vision to improve the presentation of the photo medium. The AD will oversee the shoot: make the most of the space, acquire props and set up backgrounds to guarantee the overall assignment
is successful.


Producing ensures the success of a rewarding photo shoot. Where time is money, pre-planning, scheduling and working within a budget are the first and last steps in making it all work. The producer usually hires a director who makes most of the artistic and day to day decisions on the project. Nevertheless, it is the producer – the one who controls the money – who makes all the final decisions. The producer makes sure that the director stays within the budget and follows the production schedule closely.
