What we offer

A one-stop-shop for commercial photography, Red Forge Studios can offer tailor-made solutions for a huge range of creative applications.

Michael Holman

Michael is an experienced commercial photographer, illustrator, graphic designer, tutor of digital workflow, advanced Creative Suite professional, fully qualified PfCO drone pilot, sometime journalist and long suffering art-director.

He has worked for over 15 years in a wide range of photographic disciplines, design, creative processes and image preparation. He has worked with clients of all types, and on projects ranging from one-off images, to complete campaign content generation.

Equally happy working alone on an intricate pack-shot, or in a team of stylists, models and clients, Michael approaches each job as a unique challenge, and thoroughly enjoys the many problem-solving requirements of commercial image creation.

Degrees in design and illustration, together with years of experience in the studio environment has resulted in an invaluable mix of creative and technical ability.

Bespoke, Brand Enhancing, Beautiful Images

All the best people!

We understand the importance of creating relaxed, productive and enjoyable shoots. Over the years we have built up a fantastic network of industry professionals, all of whom are a joy to work with, and all of whom can be relied upon to do everything possible to ensure the creative wheels run smoothly.

A decade of experience

Photography is a creative and fluid affair, and no two projects are ever quite the same. There are often unexpected challenges, technical obstacles, and head-scratching moments with even the best-laid plans. This is where our years of experience in the industry comes into its own. There’s always a way - the trick is not taking too long to find it...

A complete package

Every collaboration is a custom-built solution. Whether you're after a single hero shot for your website, a complete visual print campaign, or anything in between, we can work with you to deliver images that match your creative vision. See below for a brief outline of some of the services we can offer.

Fully equipped to shoot in the studio, or at any location – even in the middle of a field, or from 1500ft (yes, we’ve done both).

We’re able to take on each stage of the creative process from the initial plans, to final proofing and publication, which allows unprecedented quality control throughout.

A well-established network of agencies, professionals and talent, means that, if required, we can organise every element of a shoot, in collaboration with the client.

Anything is possible. From the simplest straight-from-camera natural-light shot, to highly complex multi-element compositions.

Experience with a vast range of shoot-types, products, media and set-ups, means that creative input is always available, if required.

Specialist Aerial Imaging

A different viewpoint...

Red Forge Studios holds a current CAA Permission for Commercial Operations, allowing us to offer a wide range of aerial imaging services.

Approaching aerial photography from a photographer's perspective allows a unique and technical understanding of the image production process.

The new generation of drones and aerial imaging technology provide an exciting platform for some truly stunning visual content creation.
