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.

Thanks so much for these images - they look fantastic!. I love the lighting, the reflective surfaces, the clarity of the images and the composition - they look really stylish. Wow they look amazing! It's suddenly clear to me that I need to get my work photographed professionally more often - the detail is amazing.

read more › At Forever Creative we offer a full remote service studio. All shoots are carried out remotely meaning clients don't have to spend their time at the shoot, as well as paying for a photographer. You can then spend your time running your own business instead of learning to be a product photographer. All our photoshoots are carried out at our dedicated product photo studio, which has been developed as a lifestyle backdrop with period features. We have a range of backgrounds, surfaces and props all to bring your products to life and create unique product photography that lets you stand out from your competitors.

We've had quite a few clients asking for 'blanks' or designer's template images producing for them. Of course you can buy off the peg stock images from a number of locations, but if you'd like images that are unique to only you, a very important factor in branding, particularly if you're trying to create difference to other similar businesses. The following three images were produced for one particular client who had greeting cards, mounted prints, and also framed prints as part of their product range.

Richard suggested we start with an introductory shoot. I was impressed with the results which showed me what was possible. This 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. If you haven't worked with me before, I do offer an introductory sample shoot, this provides you with five unique shot for 140.00, scroll down for further details.

read more › We've been photographing beauty and apothecary products for quite some time as one of our very first shoots was to create lifestyle imagery for a traditional candlemaker. For more information on styling, who we've worked with & examples of shoots scroll down below the images. When it comes to styling this is carefully crafted to accentuate the quality of your product and to portray your brand whether you would like a more organic feel, perhaps reflecting nature, and the ingredients of your products, to a more rustic or industrial theme.

read more › 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. For further information on styling, who we've worked with and discounts scroll down below the images. The same packaging will then be used to return your work to you. We are very careful when we unwrap your work, and also photograph the way in which you have packed your items.

Removing reflections is a very important goal in glassware photography and provides a professional appearance without any distractions like unwanted reflections of the room, or unsightly bright highlights. Although without any reflectivity the product doesn't look like glass anymore! The next step is to create a lighting solution that illuminates the glass in a more pleasing way, introducing light more selectively. There are a variety of techniques to do this, partly dictated by the style desired for the overall shoot.

read more › Forever Creative Photography are great to deal with, and they have listened to my brief across many shoots to produce images are that are fresh and contemporary. The images have certainly improved the profile of the business and often attract admiring comments. Homewares, including home decor and home accessories are something we can place in a context of the home very easily as the studio has been developed using a room in what is now a business centre, but was originally a Georgian townhouse.

read more › Our approach is to show your work off to it's best. What we don't aim to do is to make the pieces look absolutely perfect. That may sound contradictory, but in the case of handmade jewellery it's really important to keep some of those little imperfections, as it's these nuances that really mark the pieces out as individual. And that's what makes it special, so why would you want to remove that in the photography. All of these examples were captured in a very simple setting such as a white background.

read more › The service provided was professional, quick and helpful. Richard instantly understood the style I was after and was able to tie in my brand colours of green and white through clever use of styling and props. I couldn't be happier with the end results, the quality of the images has helped me gain business with high end wedding venues. Stationery, whether handmade or commercially printed is something we love to photograph. We love to see both typography and calligraphy it's something we relish receiving in the studio.

read more › When photographing handmade and production made textiles we take the approach of showing them in the home, but in a simple stripped back way. We don't aim to replicate a complete room, just to give a feeling of it and create the ambience of the room. We do this by showing a portion of the studio, such as a peak of a window, or perhaps positioning your product within the alcove next to the fireplace. Sometimes we will simply use the wall and show off a little of the skirting board, this way the focus stays upon your product rather than an elaborate interior scene.

read more › Situated just off the town centre in Scarborough, on the North Yorkshire Coast. The studio has been completely restored with product photography in mind. It's an inviting space of around 6 x 5m suitable for small items for a variety of products, up to medium sized items of furniture. There are many different surfaces and backdrops to choose from, including a 2.7m wide paper roll system. This can be used as a background only, or as a complete 'sweep' for cutouts and packshot photography, where a single colour 'all-around' the product is required.

read more › As well as time, it includes the use of the studio and all equipment, and also props and settings where appropriate. The current minimum shoot cost is 140.00 (not including introductory shoots or special offers.) Don't hesitate to send me an email or give me a call to discuss and then I can give you an idea of pricing from there. I currently have a number of packages available for clients who have a need for regular images. Whether that's for social media, your own website focussing on retail or trade sales, or press use I am able to provide a package.

read more › What started out as a prop cupboard has grown into a storeroom, it's still growing and as it does we'll keep adding more into this section. There may be a few duplicated items in each, this is to make it a little easier for you to find items that relate to more than one topic. A curated collection of surfaces and backgrounds including textured, block colour, printed, and reclaimed wood. The primary selection of props we have to offer from books to magazines, and ceramics to candles. Including contemporary pieces, 20th Century, and rustic.
