Show your work at its best

Use our photographs to document all stages of your project, from site investigation to planning applications, visual impact assessment, and through the entire construction process to buildings in use (including high quality images and details of the finished project, lighting surveys and installations). If you need materials boards or photos of architectural models we can help.

Showcase your services and products

We can provide you with detailed, high resolution photographs of specific work, architectural details or specialist products for use in you brochures and publicity materials. We are happy to work with not just architects, construction companies and developers, but also with sub-contractors and suppliers – to ensure we get you the images you want of your project in its entirety.

Technical excellence

Great photos need creativity and technical expertise.

Your photos are created with specialised cameras and lenses and a range of post production software packages and techniques so as to achieve geometrically correct and, if required, ultra wide angle images. It’s often possible to correct any awkward distortions that arise as a result of tight spaces and difficult angles. Our Verified View (AVR) photos come with a full methodology report.

Photos can have all sorts of geometric projections and adjustments applied (such as for VR or rectification).  Give us a call – we’re happy to explain what we can do for you and can even help with image correction and processing advice if required.

The example pictures to the right, have been selected to give an idea of our creative and technical excellence in capturing images of the built environment.

"I was looking for a new perspective on a location that has been visited plenty of times before - Fantastic outcome and spot on, a very smooth process, quick turnaround and friendly approach. I have recommended you to my clients already who might be in touch directly. I don't often come across photographers who can make an average site stand out on a cloudy day!"

Graphic Outlines Ltd - Design Agency

"You were happy to liaise with the site directly which was very helpful. It’s important we use photographers who are going to represent us professionally and it was very evident this was the case. Great pictures, very efficient and professional service."

Clement windows - specialist heritage manufacturer

"Keith quickly understood the key aspirations of the design and he was able to capture the qualities of the building in his photos."
