Video Production & Photography
Pocket Creatives in London is an independent creative production team specialising in video production, photography and digital content creation for food & drink, beauty & cosmetics, health & wellbeing, products & technology, events and crowdfunding campaigns.
What We Do:
We pride ourselves on our adaptability to deliver quality results in video production and photography projects of all kinds - we love the variety that brings and we wouldn't have it any other way. We could be shooting vegan snacks one day and a beauty brand film the next.
That's our superhero power.
This variety and every new challenge keeps us fresh and encourages greater creativity.
Actually, our combined coffee intake is our superpower, but these would be a close second!

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 don’t offer a one-size-fits-all solution, we’re about being tailored and personal. This means we can deliver better results, offer great value for money and build long-standing relationships with our clients.
Our past year…
Clients Worked With
Despite the challenges that 2020 threw at us all, we’ve created many positives from it, having moved into our video production and photography studio and expanding our team.
The Pocket team have delivered 98 individual projects for 78 different clients, across food & drink, beauty, technology and crowdfunding.
We’ve helped businesses launch new products and promote established ones, advertised across television and all the usual social media channels.
The huge volume of content that we’ve output has had a great deal of care, love and attention go into them.
In video production this year, we continue to create the monthly food recipe videos for Co-op Food and have now produced over 130 recipes and counting!
In the past year we have have met some wonderful people, told some great stories, and delivered powerful messages. Amongst the headlines: we worked with Frylight to help families cook better at home, got all lathered up with Soap & Glory‘s seasonal releases in stop motion and trod the catwalk with fashion brand Christian Kye. We launched exciting new tech with mobile phone and tech company Realme, and launched new vitamin brand Dermashotz with their new brand film.
Across 2020 our video production clients have watched over a whopping 337 hours of the video content that we’ve delivered to them, and it’s increasing daily as we go into 2021.
By the end of the year, our photography team delivered an enormous 10,041 images (yes, we counted!) and our achievements included our yearly web and social content for beauty stalwart Yardley, new product captures for vibrant skincare brand Urban Veda, colourful jewellery photography for designer Licenced to Charm, and stylised sets for upcoming cocktail creator Tom Savano. We also tempted tastebuds with all manner of culinary delights including recipe photography for Bay’s Kitchen and high-end food photography at the award winning Hot Stone London at their mouthwatering sushi restaurant.
There’s over 16 years of experience in our 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 to support your next video production or photography project…

One of or biggest photography projects so far this year is for smartphone case maker Tech21. We’re currently in post-production on shoot number 2, which covers a range of product and scenario-based photography to support the company’s re-brand and new product launches. This is a great project to be involved in, and you’ll be able to see more as we progress!
It’s been a bustling start to 2021, and we’re working hard to remain as safety conscious as we can while the pandemic still presents it’s challenges. Even so, we managed to successfully create a first product promo image for hygiene brand Fuzzy Rock, delivered in 7 languages for worldwide usage.
Continuing our creative relationship with challenger smartphone brand realme, we were asked to produce a range of imagery for their latest release – the 8Pro. This involved chasing around London, armed with a team of talented models and a little luck on our side for the weather. We delivered a bright and vibrant series of images that show-off this wicked handset in its best light.
Doing Some Good
We like to think that we’re a nice company, but we can all do more. So from May 2021 we’ve teamed up with Ecologi which will enable us to plant trees across the world. For every new project we’ll plant some new trees, so we can all give a little back to the planet 🙂
