School Prospectus
Maple Court school in Stoke-on-Trent needed a new school prospectus so here is what we designed for their new term. First of all we met with Jonathan the head teacher & discussed what he & the school wanted. What the school need is always our priority & it is our job to put that into an attractive & informative document. From that initial meeting we construct a proof school prospectus for the school to see what ideas we have had. Should a school need a new logo designing or just their old one giving a new lease of life then Caroline who has over 30 years experience in all types of design can do this no problem! The Image Factory then visited then school on two occasions & carried out the location photography. We are of course CRB checked & we do have to make sure that all of the children’s parents have given permission for their children to be photographed. These photographs are then positioned into the proof school prospectus & it is again submitted to the school. Normally there will be approximately three changes of text or image and then the work will be signed off & it […]
Staff Portrait
This staff portrait was photographed for Fuchs Oils, Stoke-on-Trent. It was taken on location in their laboratory last week and shows a member of staff in the environment they work. Sometimes these types of photographs can look as though the subject is about to be shot! What we did here was ask him do go about his business as he would usually. Then when The Image Factory saw what looked like a great image we asked him to stop. At this point we just had to find an interesting angle to take the photograph from. Using a shallow depth of field and with things in the foreground being out of focus we created this great staff portrait. The portrait shows the person, it shows what they do and it show where they do it – job done! If you would like to contact us about any photography requirements please call 01782-577790 or contact.  
Team Shots Don’t Have To Be Boring!
We were recently asked by a car exhaust manufacturer to their factory on location in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire to take a nice group photograph of three members of the management team for their marketing materials including website, brochures & social media. Well, an easy option would be to take the photograph around the boardroom table or under the sign at the entrance so we thought we’d go for a different look. We explained our idea to the client and they were more than happy to ‘give it a go’. We’re so glad they did as we really like the finished result – it shows the scale of the factory, their position within the company and they look nice and friendly too!

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.
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.
