Where We Work
We work on location throughout the UK. By taking pictures at your premises, it often means everything can be prepared quickly and easily in a familiar environment. It also gives us a chance to fully understand and capture the ambience of your business.
We need surprisingly little room, we’ve even been known to dodge chefs at the height of service, shooting food on the pass just before it heads out to a customer. Our aim is to capture as much as we can with minimal disruption to your business.
Why not give us a call on 01594 372122 to find out if a location shoot is practical for you.
In the Studio
For product photography, the best way to shoot is in our studio. We have a permament lighting set up perfect for ecommerce pictures and anything needed on white or high key backgrounds.
We also have our own kitchen and lifestyle set, where we can prepare food ready to be photographed or video the recipes being made.
For larger productions we partner with a fabulous local cookery school giving us access to a huge bright kitchen with full cooking facilities.
We are centrally located in the beautiful Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire, only 45 minutes from Bristol and Cardiff, 90 minutes from Birmingham and just over 2 hours from London with easy access to the M4.
Debbie has provided all the photography for my business for a number of years. She has been absolutely fantastic, good fun and very professional. Her stunning pictures have contributed enormously to the success of my on-line business, she knows her stuff technically, produces amazing images and understands my vision, which is not the easiest thing at times!!
I am thrilled and constantly reminded the impact the photography provided by Debbie of Imaging Essence has had on my business through my own customers comments and feedback, almost on a daily basis. Images are more important and powerful than I realised, especially helpful in todays modern world of pinterest, social media and blogs. I’ve been recently contacted by a national newspaper to provide a cheese cake for a fleet street/celebrity wedding and also a brand collaboration with a large well know biscuit bakery – all of this, I know, is down to the remarkable images and styling we are known for.
Debbie not only captures stunning images, she has also provided such support, help and advice over the years as the business has grown, We wouldn’t be where we are today without her ongoing support!Debbie Priestley
