Richard Sykes

Mrs Lovesy Greetings Cards

“Richard produces beautiful photos and interpreted my brief perfectly. Having never paid for a professional product shoot before I was a bit nervous and unsure. So Richard suggested we start with an introductory shoot. I was impressed with the results and he showed me what was possible and it gave me the confidence to hire Richard to shoot my whole product range. I was really happy with the service that was given to me and would highly recommend Forever creative photography to anyone.”

Kathy Webster  

Dragonfly Dichroic Glass

“Everyone comments on the quality of the photos Richard has taken for me. They have opened the door to new business for me. I cannot fault Richard’s communication: he shared his clean, uncluttered vision for my products clearly, edited and uploaded the photos quickly and returned my products more safely packaged than I sent him. I can’t recommend his work highly enough and as soon as my Christmas collection is complete I’ll be rebooking.”

Ann Maitland

Jan Morley

Abundant Glass

“Photographing glass in a way that does the piece justice and avoids unwanted reflections is very challenging and can defeat many professional photographers. Richard has produced a range of beautiful photographs that showcases my work beautifully. I am truly delighted with the results and will be coming back for more.”

Jane O'Neill

Paper Sole

“I’m incredibly pleased with Forever Creative’s work. The images have given my website and literature the real professional edge I was hoping for. You worry that photography won’t portray your products accurately but Richards shots really capture my cards perfectly – which must have been hard as they use foil finishes! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them and I will be using Forever Creative in the future.”

Jenny Morrison

Rocket 68 Design

“I gave Richard two different briefs to do. One was for my male orientated range ‘Boy’s Brigade’ for which he took some super photos, using some carefully placed and sourced props which were not ‘over done’ and enhanced the images. The composition and lighting were spot on and he brought out the texture on the card which is something that was very important to me. Likewise my ‘Zoo Buddies’ Children’s range was composed with some fab props and have been complimented on, on my own site and social networking sites. I highly recommend him for a reliable, carefully thought out service.”

Jill White

“My range of cards is based on detailed artwork. Richard’s photography captures this precisely with intense colour and sharp images all placed within imaginative settings.”

It has given me confidence to promote my work and my website looks more professional and contemporary thanks to these shots. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone.”



“When looking for someone to photograph the New PAIRFUM Collection, we came across Forever Creative. Although his portfolio did not contain a range of products similar to ours, we were immediately drawn to the clarity, simplicity and imagination used to capture a wide range of products. We set Richard a brief to capture the essence of the PAIRFUM brand, ‘Luxury with a Conscience’, along with high quality images of each product.The end results were excellent and we would have no hesitation to recommend Richard. It was a pleasure working with Richard and we look forward to doing more with him in the future.”

Huib Maat & Josephine McCarthy

“We have used Richard’s services 3 or 4 times this year and have found his services to be excellent. In one particular case we had a serious rush job on and despite him having a very full schedule, not only did he manage to hit our timelines but the work was of exceptional quality and reasonably priced. Forever Creative are now our defacto company for any photography work we require.”

Paul Hirst

"I am over the moon with our product shots. Richard was professional and quick in delivering high quality images that fitted our brief perfectly. Not only did he turn our project around on a tight deadline but he also achieved exactly the style we were after. Since updating our website with our new images we have received countless compliments and many people wishing to employ his service, which I would very highly recommend!"
