He instinctively knows how to keep an audience engaged through a series of images that really tell a story. He goes out of his way to get to grips with the brief and is professional, reliable and friendly. But more importantly, he has the vision to get the most out of every opportunity – whether it’s an unexpected environment or a straight forward corporate head-shot. I don’t hesitate in recommending him and hope to continue to work with him in the future.”

“Steven at Pocket Creatives is a genius photographer. He managed a photoshoot for our new product, a Charging Station for multiple Apple iPhones, brilliantly. His eye for detail, creative skill and charming and professional manner combined to deliver us an excellent set of promotional shots to support our Crowdfunding campaign in a short session. He sought our input and feedback and we were closely involved in the shoot itself, which was a genuine pleasure. I unreservedly recommend Steven to everyone considering using a professional photographer to create stunning product images.”
Adrian Maile, SLYK
“This was our first range, our first shoot, our first everything. We’ve invested a lot of time and money into every aspect of launching Persistence as a brand, and we feel we have achieved the right visuals to help us grow from nothing into something. Range two is now in development, and so the challenge doesn’t stop here, we’ll need to do even better for the next one, and our on-going partnership with Pocket Creatives will really help us to achieve that.”

A lovely team to boot, who are obsessed with the detail and getting the most from the brief. Great team, multi-disciplined and talented bunch.”
Susie Willis, Romilly Wilde
“It felt like a bit of a minefield finding the right company to photograph my scarves for my new website. I had an idea in my head of the look I wanted but hoped I would be able to communicate it to a photographer in a limited time.
Fortunately I chose Pocket Creatives! They were keen from the onset to understand my aims and budget and I approached the day photographing in the studio with complete confidence.
I felt thoroughly involved throughout the whole shoot process with Kelly and Holly and the atmosphere was professional and relaxed.
All that culminated in a fantastic selection of images for my site and I can’t recommend the team at Pocket Creatives highly enough.
Straight to Pocket Creatives next time!!!”
Alison White, Alison White Design

Tanya Shah, Urban Veda
“I have been working with Steven and the brilliant Pocket Creatives crew for 3 years – in fact since they started out. They have captured in excess of 100 recipes, produced 7 videos including 2 crowdfunding campaigns, their work, professionalism, and commitment to client satisfaction second to none. What’s more is how they have developed, evolved and grown in creativity, experience, and inspiration.
On a personal front the individuals in the team have to most wonderful personalities – an absolute joy to work with!”

Helen Burgess, Little Cooks Co
“I had the pleasure of meeting Steven at a networking event at the start of this year. I needed some images and artwork projects started, and decided to give the work to Pocket Creatives.
It was all a great success, primarily because he had the experience and seemed to know instinctively what I needed. This made the whole process easy. He delivered when he said he would, the quality was what I had expected and tweaks and changes were no problem.
Its not often this kind of thing happens, especially when they charged me a very fair price considering the time and trouble he went to make it right. I would use Pocket again and again, and would certainly recommend him.”
Frank Boltman, Thanks For Franks
“Steven and the team were very patient with my little superstars! My cats are photographed every day by customers and it can be very tricky to get them looking at the camera, as the usual sounds, clicks and toys don’t work for them like other cats – they’ve seen every trick in the book! The only way to get a really great shot of my guys is to have a bond with them, and for them to trust you. Steven put in extra days to put the cats at ease and make sure he got the perfect photos, and we’re really delighted with the results: cheeky Alice, smug Donnie and wide-eyed Wookie. They’re all there, being themselves and looking fabulous!”
Lauren Nixon, Lady Dinah’s Cat Cafe
“Working with Pocket Creatives on our Quibbles project was fantastic!

Right from the initial meetings Steve made sure he clearly understood our brief for the shoot of an event we held, offered invaluable suggestions, and demonstrated his experience and knowledge. He is approachable, professional and patient. The quality of the photography and videography was super high! Steve and his team were also super helpful with editing, and produced such a high quality promo video from the footage highlights from our event. I would have no hesitation in recommending Steve and his super organised and experienced team.”
Julie Cleijne, Sustainable Kitchen Consultants
“Steve is absolutely brilliant at his work. He shot a wide range of lifestyle shots for our range of chutneys and pickles. He started with a very detailed pre-shoot work which helped me organise my thoughts clearly and put the ideas in my head clearly into well defined concepts.
On the day of the shoot, Steve and his team were punctual, extremely careful to the finer details or each shot and our pre-shoot list helped us tackle each shot in a timely manner. He always used his previous experience to suggest angles and layout of the products. We covered about 60-70 very good quality photos in just 8 hours.
Steve’s post editing work was also great and each photo came out better than expected.
I would not hesitate to use him again for our business and recommend him for any other product based business looking for a London based photographer.”
Swati Bilal, The Cheeky Food Co
“Our brief for Pocket Creatives was to create eight low-cost and engaging recipe videos for a family audience.

We’re really pleased with the final outcome, and can’t wait to get sharing!”
Lissie Bernard, Brand Manager, Frylight (MH Foods)
“Fun, innovative and unflappable. Pocket Creatives are great to work with – whether it’s finding the perfect lighting for trifle to capturing GoPro footage on a whisk, they always approach every situation with a steady yet game-changing attitude. I see the whole team as trusted creative partners to make great content together.”
Kitty Aldis, The River Group
“Professionalism, creativity, passion and an overwhelming loyalty to deliver what your brand. Since the first email and ongoing, Pocket Creatives are the very best at what they do. Being a new company as we are, with a limited budget and experience in media, Pocket Creatives made sure they could accommodate what we could afford, without compromise. Unbelievably, this didn’t have any impact in the end result. In fact, the result will be award winning. Lauren and her team made our ‘shoot day’ run seamlessly. Encouraging us to be part of the day and valued our input. A true collaboration!! A wealth of experience in a relatively young company gave us a cutting edge campaign and social platform. We can’t wait to launch our 2nd advert that they created in the coming weeks. Do not even consider another company!!”
Phil Fairclough, Lucela’s
We were recommended Pocket Creatives by our PR agency, and have been thrilled with their professionalism, responsiveness, willingness to implement feedback and flexibility. Our internal challenges often mean we’re a little last minute and work to short deadlines, but Pocket Creatives have exceeded our expectations and created a high standard of work with very little guidance. We’ve already commissioned additional activity and will be continuing to send work their way in the months and years to come.
Hayley Hall, Head of Social Media & PR Innovaderma (Skinny Tan)

“Steve and his team are absolutely amazing! The things I appreciate most about their work ethics – 1) the upfront planning for a shoot is pretty amazing which ensures the shoot itself goes very smoothly! 2) the aim of the team seems to be full customer satisfaction, and to that end they strived to ensure I was completely happy with each photo, video clip. Even if it meant spending a little extra time redoing a photo. 3) the quality of the photos and styling itself is done very well. The attention to details, light positioning, background choice etc makes all the difference to the quality of the photos – which is just lovely! 4) to add to the above the costs are reasonable and fit a small business budget. We have had 3 shoots/ video and photo, with Steve and happy with all of them!”
