Philip Curnow  BA (Hons)  MA

What we offer:  We provide a professional, qualified, experienced and fully insured Commercial, Advertising, PR and Sports Photography service.  Mainly to corporate clients - including Educational, Governmental, Sports Organisers & Sponsors and NGO organisations.    If you have a project in mind, we are always happy to talk it through and provide a specific quote.  We shoot for some of the major UK design and Photography agencies, as well as directly for individual clients.

We are here to help - all you need to do is ask.

Our main photographer is Philip Curnow.  He describes himself as:  a Photographic Artist, Photographer,  Designer ( and Problem-solver for clients !)  He has also worked as a student mentor at University of Wales, Newport’s Art Media and Design School and sometimes lecturer, researcher and tutor on photography at college level and above, so very up to date and in touch with the full range of current photographic processes and practices - but for large projects, we also work in conjunction with other established and experienced photographers of similar skill levels.

Our ethos is to work WITH clients in order to help them achieve their image and photography requirements, using our skills and experience. Good photography is not a simple case of pointing a camera and clicking a button, it requires an understanding of psychology, marketing and branding, as well as how to balance light, shade, dark and colour.   It is often said that a picture says a thousand words - and in many cases, that can be true.   What can be overlooked is the sad fact that a picture can say a thousand positive words about you and your friends - but it can just as easily say a thousand very negative words if the image you use to remember important events is unfocussed, has dark shadows in the wrong place, has prominent closed doors / gates / folded arms - or a myriad of other potential disasters that can be overlooked in a quick snap taken for amusement - but could spell disaster if used as the public face of your experience towards the rest of the world.  

Ideally, we like to talk through any needs you have and the potential photo-shoot before we even start the photographic process - so - if you are looking for professional photography, please talk through your ideas with us, what outcomes you need, what sort of budget you have and anything else that could influence the process and we will help you move from start to finish throughout the process.

As noted, our main output is targeted at the commercial, corporate, governmental, sports and educational sectors.  For various reasons, we have chosen NOT to photograph in the Boudoir / Soft-porn arena - so please never ask us to shoot photos you would consider as porn  !
