Business Portraits have a number of portable studio options, allowing our photographers to bring everything needed to create great imagery in your work place. But assignments and locations vary extensively from the comfort of an office, home or city environment, to construction sites, aboard boats in rough seas and even from the sky, strapped to the edge of a doorless helicopter! However challenging the brief, Matthew and the team have a wealth of experience in creating memorable images.

We work with you to create the right photography style to enhance your corporate communications, marketing strategy and media plans. Our work is always based on your requirements, framed by your corporate and brand values.


We are constantly investing in technology that improves the service we offer, be that camera, software or computer hardware.

Out investment also allows images to be reviewed on a lap top live as they are shot, enabling you to almost see through the photographer’s eyes during the shoot. With all portrait shoots we can make time for a review by the subject too, ensuring that they are happy with their look on the day and shooting more if they want to make adjustments.
