“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.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.”

"Richard was helpful throughout the process and he guidance was invaluable, we were happy enough to let him use his creativeness and are very happy with the results."
"I was absolutely blown away by the photos taken by Richard! The composition was incredible - it was exactly how I wanted my ceramic home ware and art pieces to be displayed. He captured the mood perfectly, and I felt as though he has represented my style and brand in every shot. Richard also wrapped each ceramic piece thoroughly for the transition back to my studio, so they all arrived in an immaculate condition. I received a professional service throughout and I highly recommend Forever Creative Photography to everybody."
“You listened to my requests and acted on them but with your own creative spin. I was really pleased with your professionalism through the entire process, from initial e-mail chat to discussing the brief and ending with some great images. Thanks”
FOOD & BEVERAGES
“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.”
“We researched Yorkshire based photography and were really impressed with the images on Richard's website. We really liked too that he was very local to us and understood the region and the area that we represent. Really impressed and easy to work with, despite very tricky circumstances (shoot was scheduled for the end of March, just as the Corona virus lock down began). We got fantastic imagery at the end.”
“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.”
“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.”
"I had been finding it difficult taking my own indoor studio shots and had been struggling with reflection & lighting. Richard's clear, detailed photographs have captured the fine texture of the engraving and with clever use of lighting, objects and placement have given my glass lights a sense of scale, atmosphere and a place in the home. I feel inspired to get making! Thank you."
“Richard, at Forever Creative Photography, ensures that he understands what your piece of work requires in detail by carefully questioning, listening and clarifying. He is completely transparent about what can be achieved and maintains contact throughout the project. His results are amazing. ”

He was very quick to respond to our initial enquiry and very accommodating to our requirements. We felt the price quoted was reasonable, there were no hidden extras and the results were excellent, Together we have added value to our marketing material as well as our website. Thank you Richard!."

“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.”

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them and I will be using Forever Creative in the future.”

“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.”
"Richard at Forever Creative Photography has been fantastic the whole way through the process of photographing my products for my new website. In addition too the initial service I required he was super helpful and offered a a variety of solutions to a new request that I had and we were able to go forward with it.

So thank you so much!"
