The Brief

To supply high quality photography of the work produced by Forge Studios members, for use on their websites, and in their marketing and publicity.



Allendale Forge Studios

I have known David Taylor since 2007, during which time David has been a member of the Allendale Creative Artists CIC, (ACA CIC) a creative social enterprise hub. David produced stunning photography exhibitions that provided the art gallery with excellent support in the areas of showcasing the surrounding area and that offered the opportunity to undertake joint projects.


The company has rapidly grown after moving into a purpose built development called Allendale Forge Studios Art Centre and now has an office team who support over 70 member businesses that encourage business-to-business activities. One of our schemes is to offer in-house ‘product photography’. When visiting a website or picking up a brochure or advert, the design and images are the first things the potential customer is drawn to before the viewer goes on to read what the product or service has to offer. A poor layout and dull home produced photography can detract from getting the message across, and to this aim we employ David to work closely with the membership to produce high quality photography for those wishing to highlight their products.


I can highly recommend David to any company wishing to employ David’s services as we have found him to be a vital part of the team, sympathetic to small business needs, always happy to be flexible in his approach while delivering a skilled and professional result.
