Commercial photography is our specialty. It’s used to sell products and services, and includes corporate, industrial, press and public relations (PR) photography. Typically, our clients request imagery for their websites, brochures, advertising and promotional purposes. We have the equipment to set up a studio on site, and the post-production skills to turn images around quickly.
We call on years of experience to produce dynamic event photography. We cover a range of commercial events and corporate functions including lectures, debates, VIP and royal visits, and guest speaker events. We understand that images need to go public quickly, so have the technology to upload images to social media instantaneously. We’re happy to travel and can quote for several days’ shooting.
We love taking pictures of people, whether in our professionally equipped studio in Oxford or out on location. We shoot individuals, families and business people for both private and commercial use. We also take regular commissions for group photographs on location – both informal and staged – and documentary photography assignments.
Performance photography includes dance and theatre photography, and the performing arts. It’s another area of Fisher Studios expertise. Our clients include theatre companies, dance groups and schools. We can also produce portraits for actors’ portfolios. We have a large body of theatrical work and would be delighted to share specific examples with you.
Product photography is specifically of products and includes pack shots. Clients typically use product imagery on e-commerce sites and in marketing literature. We conduct assignments both in our Oxford studio and on location throughout the UK. Importantly, we offer advanced post-production services, such as creation of cut-outs and drop shadows.
Interiors and architectural photography is a growing part of our portfolio. Architect studios, property developers and private owners are among the clients who commission us to shoot their properties. We work hard in pre-production to ensure we’re on site at the right time, for the time it takes to get stunning shots. We also have a small archive of evocative Oxford photographs.
