Video Production & Photography
Pocket Creatives in London is an independent creative team specialising in video production, photography and digital content creation for food and drink, beauty and cosmetics, health and wellbeing, products and technology, events and crowdfunding campaigns.
We work with businesses of all sizes - from established household names to emerging brands, start-ups, and creative agencies who trust us to deliver alongside them.
We pride ourselves on our flexibility and adaptability to take on video production and photographic projects of all kinds, and we wouldn't have it any other way. We could be shooting cupcakes one day and a corporate interview the next.
That's our superhero power.
This variety helps keep us fresh, with every new challenge a very welcome one.
Actually, our coffee intake is our superpower, but these would be a close second.
Here's a breakdown of what we offer:
Professional video production services, creatively produced in HD, 4K and 6K for great quality visually alongside the excellent service we provide for all our clients
Fast and efficient video editing using the Adobe creative suite of editing, sound and colour grading tools
A scaleable service built on affordable templates at one end and custom tailored designs at the other, so we can provide a fit for all needs
Our music library subscription gives us access to thousands of high quality licenced tracks at a very reasonable price per track, great for value and versatility
Voiceovers are recorded remotely by voice artists in their own professional studios for cost-effectiveness, quality and speed of delivery
Our media partner provides transcripts from video within as little as 24 hours ready for us to add to your final video for subtitled masters
Digital photography captured in 36 megapixels for excellent quality and definition for all outputs from simple packshots to social content and advertising
Photography processing and optimising through Adobe RAW, Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop
Increasingly popular, we’re able to offer moving GIF images as part of both video production and photography bookings for added creative options
We use a worldwide network of talent to help us fulfil any brief, whether you’re looking for a hand model, a face for your brand or an actor to deliver your lines
Professionally completed makeup and hair can make the difference between good and great on projects centred around talent in front of the lens
We use reliable high grade fast storage for the duration of your video production or photography project, with the option for us to store longer term for more extensive projects and series’
All projects benefit from clear planning and goals, which we undertake before any new video production or photography project to make sure that we’re all on-track
No one likes to run over-budget, so we take the time to scope the full photography or video production project at the very start to keep us all on-track
In addition to our partner studio in London, we work with studios across the UK in addition to offering homes, kitchens, and outdoor spaces that fit your brief
We do all of our own styling for video production and photography projects, and will be able to provide food stylists for projects where cooking and styling are required
We have a stack of portable backgrounds in house, which helps take the edge off your styling budget, and offers plenty of options while we can also source bespoke
We work in an industry where new techniques and equipment become available to help us make your photography or video production project look unique, and a little more ‘you’
We work with a variety of brands in different ways, depending on the needs of the client and the project. We aren’t an agency, and we don’t offer a one-size-fits-all solution. We’re about being personalised and tailored. This means we can deliver better results, offer great value for money and build long-standing relationships with our clients.
This year, we continue to produce the monthly recipe videos for Co-op Food and have now reached over 114 recipes and counting! In the past year, we have been privileged to interview inspiring young people as we covered the Telegraph STEM awards, we met the talented chefs who produce amazing food on the Cunard cruise liners, helped viewers get fit by delivering online wellbeing and yoga courses, encouraged food sharing with OLIO and Hellmann’s, we’ve told stories through animation and we’ve unboxed brand new tech. Our video clients have watched 13 days, 16 hours, 18 minutes and 40 seconds of video that we’ve delivered to them, and it’s increasing daily.
By the end of 2019, our photography team delivered a whopping 11,826 images (yes, we counted) and amongst our achievements we provided images for a new CBD product entering the market, we covered numerous exciting events ranging from product launches to awards evenings and influencer evenings, we’ve created engaging visual media for social media platforms for food & drink, beauty and tech companies. We showed people how things work, what to wear, how to use, we’ve allowed consumers to imagine how something tastes, and introduced products to people that can help them look and feel their best.
There’s over 15 years of experience in our small creative team. We love what we do, and you’re in safe hands. Or maybe that should be ‘hand’, as we are more than likely to be holding a camera in the other one!
Come in, take a look around, and see what we can do for you…

Mobile phone brand realme approached us before lockdown to ask us to support them with their new Series 6 smartphone launch. We were just able to complete filming in the studio in March, and edited remotely, which allowed realme to replace their intended livestream with new pre-recorded content and kept the launch on track.
In the midst of the coronavirus, it’s not quite business as usual, but we’ve adapted our operations and are calling it ‘Business As Possible’. We are following the government guidelines and have completed risk assessments in order to become COVID Secure – which means that we can now take on a wider range of photography and video production projects, still being responsible and keeping people safe.
We’re delighted to have produced a second set of recipe photography for food brand Bay’s Kitchen, who we worked with for the first time earlier this year. We delivered a combination of product, in-progress and finished dishes created in the studio with our food stylist. Looking forward to next time!
