Katherine is a copywriter with an ear for what makes her customers tick and an understanding of the research needed to make a business stand out in the marketplace.“David Ogilvy said it first, ‘There is no substitute for homework.

Writer, journalist and photoshoot stylist
Are you starting in the middle (and need more help)?
A traditional apprenticeship in the newsrooms of Newcastle and London means Sian can scrawl shorthand fast enough to cover Old Bailey trials and produce precise, tight copy against the clock.
Swapping newsrooms for glossy magazines took her to London, New York and Sydney. Along the way, Sian developed an instinctive feel for copy that people really want to read.
Our resident Francophile, Sian is now a writer, editor, stylist and translator. She handles everything from CHANEL product descriptions to copy for large construction firms in the UK. She is professional, precise and – even after 19 years juggling them – she still loves words.
Clients say –
“Sian’s insider knowledge of newspapers and magazines was invaluable when we were planning a PR campaign to launch our website. She knows exactly what journalists do – and don’t – want to receive. As a result, her press releases always get a positive response.”
Emma Harrop, Founder and Director | Velvet, Brighton

Professional and Commercial Photographer, BA (Hons) CPP
Do you need a fresh new look?
Angela Carrington | The Bigger Picture
As comfortable with a camera on a boat in the middle of the Tyne River as she is on the roof of a seven-storey office block under construction, Angela loves “Making random, ugly and boring things sexy. Not people, of course, they look great without much help. But, you know, things like roller shutter doors – or hamster cages. They’re not desperately exciting but people still need to buy them and companies need to sell them. I like the challenge of making them look great.”
Clients say –
“There is not much more to say than this: Angela is my go-to photographer whenever I need press photography. Her work is always of the highest standard, hugely creative and she goes the extra mile on every project, regularly exceeding expectations. The image I consider to be the best campaign shot I have ever used was achieved thanks to Angela putting herself out to create a pic that very few others could achieve. She comes highly recommended.”
