Video Production and Photography


Pose, smile or smoulder…

….beauty photography and video production, looking your best from head to toe.

We’re proficient in photography and video content creation for hair care, skin care, nails, tanning, make-up and cosmetics.

Equally comfy in the studio or the freedom of the outdoors, we can create looks that best reflect your beauty brand, in the hands (or on the skin) of your model. We’ll make sure the lighting’s right and get the most from every pixel.

Working with cosmetics and beauty products is actually quite similar to how we tackle some of our food and drinks projects, finding vibrancy and depth as often as possible. We’re also frequently asked for similar shot types, from flat lays to those including human interaction.

Just last year, we created a brand film for a new haircare brand, and also delivered our first set to TV adverts destined for the far east. Although one of our favourite highlights was coming face to face with an exceptionally large cow while sat in a cow pat in a field. This was while shooting for Byre, incidentally, we didn’t just sit in a cow pat in a field 😉

What we can do

We love shooting for beauty brands, capturing both faces and products. There’s something about this sector that allows for a huge amount of creativity and experimentation.

While most of our work is used for social media, we have also delivered for broadcast, print in magazines, and larger for stands and billboards.

Amongst our usual deliverables, we currently create social media content for engagement, before and after looks, product demos, how-to’s and tutorials, beauty launch and influencer events and creative product imagery for our current beauty clients. We work with some on a regular basis to create content for engagement or project-by-project.

Who we’ve worked with

Our client list is quite expansive, from regular projects with Yardley and Byre, to campaigns for James Read Tan, social content for Urban Veda, nail videos with Leighton Denny, and healthy wellbeing studio videos for The Healthy Mummy. The diversity is huge!

While we love working for the large brands, there’s something very satisfying about helping emerging beauty brands with their visual content – it’s often here that we can be a little braver to help them stand out.

A great example

One of our most collaborative relationships is with beauty pr agency CatalystPR, who we work on a number of brands with, from Yardley, to new skincare brand Byre, DrPawPaw and others. We’re commissioned to cover events, launches and social media content in both video and still form. This is a great example of where having a range of services all under one roof can work so well.

“We were in need of new digital collateral and after a great recommendation we worked with Pocket Creatives on a video to showcase the brand in a new light.

From going through initial concepts and interpreting our brief, to sourcing location and of course the filming and direction on the day, Steven and the team were amazing and have a great eye for the details.

We are thrilled with the end result, it was beyond expectation. We can’t recommend them enough and are looking forward to the next shoot!”

Vernice Walker, Leighton Denny Expert Nails

“The Pocket team were a pleasure to work with, not only were they super prepared, on time and professional but the quality of work they delivered in a short space of time was fab. I would recommend Pocket Creatives, we couldn’t have asked for a better experience and are thrilled with our short video.”

Holly Sud, DrPawPaw

“We worked with Pocket Creatives after meeting them at the London Coffee Festival. Although our brief had a strict budget and tight deadline to adhere to, the Pocket Creatives team were incredibly flexible and produced a video of extremely high quality. Indeed, the video, which was for a Crowdcube crowdfunding campaign, helped us to overfund in less than a week!
The Pocket Creatives team come highly recommended and we would be thrilled to work with them again in the future!”

Will Brightman, Upcircle
