The Chef and I
One of the things I love about this job the most is that from time to time it gets you into places or to see things you just never would if you did a ‘normal’ job. So last week was one of these moments – a day at Claridges, London with executive chef Martyn Nail. We were there photographing some of his food and the beautiful china tableware by William Edwards that it is served on. It was a a brilliant day, the chef and his staff were so accommodating and hopefully we captured images that will be of use to the hotel and the pottery manufacturer. Here I am with the man himself, Martyn Nail.
20 Years Photographing Trophy Catalogue
There can’t be many companies as loyal as Glenway Trophies from Leicester. The silver trophy and awards company have traveled down the A50 & used The Image Factory in Stoke on Trent for the past TWENTY YEARS to photograph their catalogues. In that time they’ve transformed from one of the smaller UK trophy and gifts companies to the largest and best in the country. The great thing about working with a company for this amount of time is that you really can build great relationships and understand exactly what it is the client wants. In this photograph you can see the designer Paul with the works van all packed away for another year – see you again soon!

Location Photography in Hereford
A 5.30am start from our studio in Stoke on Trent meant this location job was always going to be along day but using The Hyde in Herefordshire as a backdrop helped in getting some great images. There were several elements to this location shoot. We had to capture the lovely ceramic tableware indoors and out (not helped by the rain!). In some shots we had children involved and in others animals like owls and hedgehogs. The image shown here is of the ‘young guns’ just stopping for a tea break – at this point the dog had run off which was hilarious! Some of the images were used in magazines and some for the clients website and all of the children got an image to treasure too. For more information about our services please call 01782 577790 or view our portfolio here.
Social Media
Social media is becoming more and more important in all types of business these days and photography is no different. At The Image Factory photographers here in Stoke we use Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr to name a few to show what we do. The best thing about it in my opinion is that you can post images and updates whilst doing the job. On location we often show where it is we are working and in the studio we ask clients if it’s ok to show their product in a blog. It’s great and it’s instant! Please follow us on any social media platform to see more images, updates & offers. We follow all business back!
