“Although I have been taking photographs for most of my life, for my web site I wanted a professional look, particularly as my products are very image based. I was not disappointed, Richard has brought my candles to life by using superb lighting and a very well judged use of props. He has also proved very good in building the site and helpful in explaining everything as it progressed.
Thank you for everything.”
“The photographs are stunning! Super happy, you’ve done an amazing job as expected!! I just wish I had more things for you to photograph, I best get painting!”

“Richard did such an amazing job of photographing my Dotty Dog Art greeting cards and went way beyond the call, producing bespoke backdrops for me too. I couldn’t be happier with the final results and will be using Richard’s awesome skills again and again.”
DOTTY DOG ART
“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.”
“Richard offers a specialist service for product photography which is hard to find at an affordable rate. He approaches the task professionally and obviously has a good understanding of creative industries. I am thrilled with the images I’ve had back so far and am looking forward to exploring more options in the future.”

“Richard is great to work with; he is easy to talk to and listens to what you are looking for. He always comes up with great settings for product shots so they look really good and he always gets just the right feel for the product and your brand.”
PERKINS & MORLEY
“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.”
“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.”
PAPER SOLE CARDS
“I used Richard Jackson at Forever Creative Photography as I had seen some samples of his work online and was drawn to them instantly. I gave him three very 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. The other shoot was of a very floral range ‘Windowbox’, for which I specified a light, contemporary feel, to bring out the colour of the designs. Richard used minimal props here but the ones he did use were positioned with care and attention to colour and detail. Likewise my ‘Zoo Buddies’ Children’s range was composed with some fab lego pieces as 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.”
“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.”
NEW LEAF CARDS
“If they want a photographer who takes time to listen, communicate, try out ideas and deliver everything spoken about, at a very competitive and affordable price, then Richard’s your man.”

“We were delighted to be recommended Richard by Jan of Perkins and Morley and we are very pleased with the shots he has taken for us. We specifically wanted product photographs for the Shop page of our new website and we love the way Richard has incorporated props, like the red London bus, into each shot. Richard has captured the essence and fun of Binky bear.”
“Richard always does a fabulous job on my greeting card ranges. He has the perfect detailed styling which really enhance the cards. 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.”
RED BERRY CARDS
“When looking for someone to photograph the New PAIRFUM Collection, we came across Richard Jackson of Forever Creative Photography.
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.”
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!
