What kind of creative services do you offer?
Where are you based?
I’m based in Truro, Cornwall – just a short drive from the A30.
Can we meet up to discuss my requirements in more detail?
If you live a reasonable distance from Truro, Cornwall, then meeting up to discuss your requirements will not be a problem. I can travel to you or you can travel to me – the decision is yours.
If you live a little further away, then I’d be happy to arrange a FaceTime, Skype or telephone call to discuss your requirements. I regularly work with clients from all over the world, so distance-working is not a problem.
How much experience do you have?
I’ve been working in the creative industry since 2001 – the same year in which I was still studying towards my degree in Photography & Design Communication.
My business started small, initially offering only surf photography. I worked hard and soon found myself dealing with some pretty cool clients within the industry. It wasn’t long until I was taking commissions and traveling to various European surf destinations – capturing photographs for travel companies, magazines and other surf related publications.
As my portfolio developed, I started to photograph other subjects, including sports, property & interiors and food. At the same time, I was also developing my skills as a designer – creating web, print and digital based design work for start-ups and small-medium sized businesses throughout the UK.
Several years later, I’m pleased to offer my creative services to clients all over the world.
Graphic Design & Web Design FAQ’s
Do you offer web design?
Yes. I provide a range of web design options to suit every budget – from ‘off-the-shelf’ solutions to complete bespoke designs which meet your exact requirements.
If you’re concerned that you won’t be able to afford a professionally designed website, then I highly recommend that you still get in touch, as I may be able to offer some suggestions which could help to make things more affordable.
If you design my website, will I be able to manage the content myself?
It depends on the type of website I design for you. If you’ve opted for a content managed website, it will typically be built into a popular content management system called WordPress. WordPress allows you to update the content on your website yourself – quickly and easily!
Should you need it, I can also provide training and support to help you get to grips with WordPress.
Can you design e-commerce websites?
Yes. I can design e-commerce websites which will provide you with all of the usual features and functions that you’d expect from an online store – features such as stock management, online payments, simple or configurable products, advanced product search functionality and customer account areas.
As an e-commerce website owner, you will be able to manage all aspects of the e-commerce store – whether that be updating stock levels, changing prices, adding shipping methods or communicating directly with your customers through the admin area.
Can you design printed materials, such as flyers, brochures etc?
Yes. As a graphic designer, I regularly apply my skills to a whole host of print-based design projects. The list of print-based items I can design is fairly extensive, but to give you an idea of what’s possible, I’ve included some of the most popular ones below:
Poster & Flyer Design
ID & Business Card Design

With regards to web hosting and email account setup, I can either set things up for you with your preferred hosting provider, or alternatively, offer to set things up for you on my own server – the decision is yours.

How will I receive the images which you capture for me?
All of the images which I capture on a photography assignment are captured in a high-quality, RAW digital format.
Once the photography assignment is complete, these RAW images are processed using professional photo editing software. All images are checked individually for contrast, sharpness and colour balance.
Once this stage is complete, the images are exported to a more user-friendly format, such as high-resolution jpg image files. These jpg image files are then made available for you to download from a private online storage area.
Can I use the images which you capture for me for any purpose?
Images are typically captured for a specific client and/or purpose.
When you hire me, you’ll receive a Project Specification document which will clearly state who may use the captured images, and for what purpose they may be used.
Do you offer photo retouching and editing services?
Yes I do. I have carried out many photo retouching and editing projects over the years. Some have been fairly straight forward, and others much more complex.
If you’d like to find out more about these services, please feel free to get in touch to discuss your requirements.

I can help you to create a storyboard for your promotional video – making sure that your message is effectively communicated to your target audience.
Can you capture and edit my promotional video?
Yes, I can capture and edit your promotional video – working with you throughout this process to make sure that your message is effectively communicated to your target audience.
Can you help me source and license audio and music for my promotional video?
