art direction / styling / photography / retouching
is a full service imaging making studio
We are co.create. We love making images. We work with folks who need a suite of images to make their product, place or people pop! Our experience covers architecture, interiors, food and wine, and product photography.
Right from the start, we'll manage the process from woe to go, from taking a brief through to file delivery. Our complete image-making service is made possible through the broad skill-set of our key team members, whose expertise cover art direction, styling, photography and retouching.
Sarah Anderson has shot anything and everything throughout her career, Pip Castle has 10+ years running her own studio and directing many big brand shoots, and Lizzie Deller's background in design underpins her skills in image retouching.
Drop us a line if you have a project in the works, and we'd be happy to talk through your needs.
how we work
First up, we'll have an initial meeting to discuss your needs. We want to know the purpose of the images, and what you're hoping to achieve from the shoot. We'll also cover aesthetics, style, budget and content.
Taking onboard the brief, we'll create design concepts in the form of mood boards to give you a clear idea of the what the final images will look like. This thorough planning process includes bringing art direction, styling and photography all together to nut out any issues and troubleshoot potential problems before they arise.
Once you've approved the creative direction, we get stuck into pre-production. Locations and/or studio space is booked, props are sourced and lighting and photography equipment prepped. Then it's shoot day!
We'll provide you with contact sheets of the shoot for you to make your image selects.
The selected images will be processed, colour-corrected and retouching to a finished standard. Then we'll supply final files according to outputs set out in the brief, ready for final use in print, digital and social media.
