Client and colleague feedback


We’ve had the privilege of working alongside some fantastic industry professionals and for some wonderful clients over the years. Click to expand the boxes and find out what a few of them have to say about working with Red Forge Studios.


Aiming for the perfect working relationship...


Ambitious, we know, but we've learnt over the years that everyone can enjoy a photoshoot, and that a high pressure working environment needn't result in a stressful experience... We've found, in fact, that the more relaxed everyone is, the more productive everything tends to become.

It's important to work alongside the right people. We take pride in the excellent client and colleague relationships that we've built up, often as the result of years of creative collaboration.
