Welcome to Design Photography

Commercial and Advertising Photography for Business and Graphics Professionals


Here at Imagemaker Studios we like to create imagery that is always exciting, fresh, experimental & occasionally - unexpected! But the images are always intelligently designed to give your business’s advertising and marketing campaigns that unique edge you may have been missing until now. We combine our wealth of experience and qualifications with the latest studio equipment to take you and your business on an ‘adventure with light’ that could produce something amazing, we do location work too throughout Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, Worcestershire and Herefordshire. Most of all we want you to enjoy your shoot so whilst we are totally professional and serious about advertising imagery - welcome to a studio with a sense of humour, personality and character!

Below are snapshots and descriptions of current and latest projects only, if you wish to see more extensive & historic portfolios please use the ‘PORTFOLIOS’ section above. Thank you.

*Studio News*
We have recently invested in replacing our medium format camera system moving away from our old Hasselblad to the very latest PhaseOne XF camera & Schneider Blue Ring lenses coupled with a 100mp IQ3 digital back - after a few shoots with this new equipment we can honestly say the results are unsurpassed - so if you require massive files, sharpness, clarity and colour rendition to die for - get in touch. We have also just purchased a Linhof M679CS camera system which will allow us to create super clever images using the ’tilt - shift - swing’ features available on these types of cameras which means we can manipulate the plane of focus …ask us for more information.

E-Commerce Photography Solutions


*LATEST NEWS* We have just invested in a state of the art ‘Ortery’ 360 degree turntable capable of turning a massive 600lbs in weight which will expand the range of products we can shoot into large furniture items or heavy machinery, this turntable is also fully software automated which decreases the time it takes to create these types of images thus lowering the costs to the client - get in touch if this is something that could interest you.

MIRA SPORT

Global Shower & Bathroom Product Manufacturer Photography


As part of many product launches from Mira Showers this year we had the privilege of creating a large portfolio of visual assets for this best seller. Sport is Mira’s most desirable electric shower range and needed a fresh viewpoint, we designed several clever new ways to shoot this range including water splashes and underwater imagery to illustrate the ‘Air Boost’ system incorporated in this product. Using high speed flash and professional hand models we captured the beauty of water being sprayed over hands and components.

Tewkesbury Brewing Company

Tewkesbury Brewery Web Site Photography


We were asked by Daryl at Tewkesbury Brewery to create a series of web banners and adverts for their flagship beer ‘Dark Knight’. This is the very first professional imagery that the brewery has very had, bearing in mind they are only a year old so there was some pressure to make these images a foundation for the next beers when they arrive, personally, I loved shooting these and I think we have created a mood / concept that will allow further products to sit alongside.

LINKEDIN TESTIMONIALS
Having known Andy for a couple of years now, networked with him, worked with him, been snapped by him and successfully recommended him on several occasions, I can't speak highly enough about his skills, experience and approach to commercial photography. He's also an exceptionally decent bloke. Highly recommended! Hire Andy before your biggest competitor does!.”

Al Hidden - The Gloucestershire Copywriter
“ Andy took some fabulous room shots for us to highlight particular products, including a seasonal selection. He gave just the right amount of input, and was helpful and creative throughout. As novices to this we felt supported in what we did, and like Andy really took the time to understand our vision of the end result. The images were beautiful, and ideal for purpose.”

Anna Brooks - Iapetus gallery
I commissioned Andy to take new head shots of me so I could update my online profiles. To say I am delighted with the results would be an understatement! I’ve got a great portfolio of images that includes a range of beautifully composed formal, informal and fun shots so I’ve got something for every online setting. Andy is an extraordinarily talented photographer and I would have no hesitation in recommending him.
