Sam’s Work Experience
Today is Sam’s last day of his work experience here at The Image Factory. We have enjoyed having him with us and if he’s to be believed he has had a good time too. When we have a work experience person we try to get them as involved as  possible. Sam has helped out in the studio working with me on photography project like Moorcroft Pottery and Scilabware. In the studio he has learned about balancing studio lights, composition and the attention to detail needed in order to produce first class images.

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!
