It’s how we make a living.

Us photographers are a funny lot. We love what we do – but we also need to earn a living!  We want our photos to be seen by the largest audience possible, but we do need to eat, and feed our children.  There’s a problem at the moment with ‘orphan’ works – that is, photos that can’t be traced back to the original owner, and subsequently paid for if they are used commercially. Despite our best efforts to protect our rights, and income, there’s a problem brewing with some legislation. Today, the BPPA have asked none other than David Bailey to get involved – and he’s written directly to George Osborne – fingers crossed that a bit of ‘celebrity’ clout helps our cause.

We shoot photos and video of people, objects, places, buildings, landscapes, food, animals, families, portraits, products... in fact, most stuff. We've won a lot of awards.There's two of us... and we're both qualified to handle a loaded camera. Call us.
