The Forever Creative studio works with brands, creatives and designer-makers from all across the UK and creates product photography, lifestyle imagery, packshots and white background images. It's been over six years now since Richard Jackson, a product photographer with experience in working in both design and photography, setup the business and now hundreds' of shoots later has worked with many brands including, Made by Zen, the Spirit of Yorkshire Distillery, the British Craft Trade Fair and lots of individual designers.

Shoots with Forever Creative are carried out remotely meaning clients don't have to spend their time at the shoot, as well as paying for a photographer. Working hand in hand with clients producing product photography, website photography, and for use in social media and in-print. Enabling clients to push their products and brands to the next level through emotive and unique photography. To sell your products online and connect with your customers it's important to bring out tactile elements of your work, and to accentuate textures and capture reflective or special finishes in a professional way.

Many images have provided clients additional coverage and have been published in journals and industry magazines such as World of Interiors and show previews.

The studio has been developed to have a range of backgrounds, surfaces and props. Many of which are truly unique vintage items, and in the example of surfaces are all real items such as wooden panelling. It's this approach to items with real textures that all help to create a genuine convincing story.

For lifestyle photography it's important to allow your customer to visualise your product in context which is why we have  a select range of furniture that can be incorporated alongside period features, such as a fireplace, sash windows and skirting boards.
