Upstart your social, digital and advertising photography campaigns.

We’re a UK Photography Agency that works with your brand to achieve creative and marketing goals

When we first started, our business was called Upstart Photography. That should tell you everything you need to know; we are one of the foremost UK photography agencies, with experience with every variety of commercial and promotional photography. We will create, capture and edit the perfect image for you every time.

Stand out against your competitors with bold and dynamic photography that engages, and inspires your customers across social media platforms. Whether you’re looking for promotional photography, event photography, product photography, headshots, or anything else, we will elevate your brand with stunning images.

What Photo Content Are You Creating?

Our Manchester and London-based team provide full-service UK photography production and marketing services to our clients, including fast-moving startups, local councils, law firms, and multinational companies.

Stand out from the crowd

Commercial Photography

From product photography to promotional PR and Press campaigns, Upstart Productions is here to help you tell your brand story and sell your services.

We are experts at creating commercial photography campaigns, working closely with our clients to create bold, memorable images which drive results.

Connecting brands and ideas

Headshot Photography

We specialise in offering modern, creative corporate headshots and corporate portraits with personality, which will set you apart from the competition.

Headshots can be so much more than just a directory of employees; they can help to tell your brand story. Good corporate headshots show the human side to business, help clients to put faces to names, and promote your company at conferences, in the press and on social media.

Don’t just document your event

Event Photography

Whether your goal is to promote a new product at a launch event, generate social media buzz, attract sponsors, or simply capture memories for your attendees, our event photography creates an impact which goes far beyond the end of the event.

At Upstart, we pride ourselves on capturing the unforgettable moments of the events we attend in a bold, modern style.

Photography Case Studies

Airbubbl Product Photography

We were briefed with creating high-class, luxury product photos demonstrating Airbubbl’s revolutionary in-car air filtration technology in two scenarios; London’s famous black cab, and private hire cars.

The photos were used to target specific transport sectors through website content, blog posts, targeted email campaigns, and on social media. As a result, our client landed a major contract for a new fleet of company cars.

Makers Headshot Photography

We approached Makers Academy with a bold claim; our headshot photography could enrich their offering to students, upgrade their branding, and improve online visibility.

What happened went far beyond that; so much so that after our initial monthly trial Maker’s signed us up on a monthly retainer for our photography services. Our partnership helped to create a consistent stream of content, from headshots to event photos which were used for various marketing goals.

Legal Geek Conference Photography

In October 2016 (the first year we worked together) the conference had 500 attendees. The next year it was 1000. In 2018 the conference grew to 2000 people, and is one of the largest Legal Tech conferences in the world; We’re still working together today.

Our brief from Legal Geek was clear; capture modern, unforgettable photos from their Annual conference which would be used across all channels to help them grow.

Photo FAQ’s

As a leading UK sustainable photography agency, we thought it would be helpful to answer some common questions about photo shoots.

How much does photography cost?

Determining the price for your production involves several factors, and very much depends on the scale of the production. Factors include how large a crew is required, location costs, talent and licensing fees, on top of many other parts which go into creating a photography production.

You can refer to our rate card to get a general idea of our prices, but we think its always best to have a chat to discuss your vision and how we can make it in the most cost-effective way.

What makes you a sustainable photography agency?

You can read more about the efforts we go to on our Sustainability page. We take every action possible to minimise the carbon footprint of our photo shoots, including using renewable energy to power our equipment (which is low power as far as possible), minimising travel by using local crews, and using green web hosting.
Unfortunately due to the nature of the business emissions can’t be totally negated, so we use certified carbon offsets from our partner Ecologi to provide a 10x offset for each video production project we undertake.

Can I Send Products For You To Shoot Remotely?

Absolutely! This is a really great way of shooting a product line. We can put together every scale of the project from a simple lightbox setup for small items, all the way up to hiring models and studio space to run a larger product photography shoot.

Can I have a copy of the RAW images?

We can absolutely provide the RAW images for you, either via online transfer for small projects, or a physical hard drive for larger productions. We do charge a fee for this which varies depending on the size of the project, so we’ll be more than happy to discuss this in detail with you when putting together your quote.

Are You Able To Capture Both Video And Photography At Once?

We can definitely provide both stills and video at the same time. Depending on the project we may be able to pull stills from the video (if we shoot in 4k resolution), alternatively, we can supply a photographer (at additional cost) who will be there to capture stunning images.

we grow your brand, so you change the world.
