I work with designers, publishers, agencies, architects, authors, stylists, start-ups, creatives, craftsmen, inventors, entrepreneurs, restaurateurs, refurbishments, rebrands and a wide range of household names and multinationals.
Here's what some of them had to say about working with me & studio68b...
We worked with Dave & studio68b across two high profile creative projects for J.K. Rowling - our rebrand of Pottermore and her personal website jkrowling.com. Photography featured prominently in our solutions for both projects and David and Jess truly delivered. They understood our creative vision and worked hand in hand with us to deliver the uncompromising level of photography required. A pleasure to work with and the highest of standards."
Why? Projects design director
"I've had the privilege of working with some wonderful photographers over the years including inspirational legends, Snowdon, John Donat and Ken Kirkwood.
I can’t remember when we first commissioned the equally inspirational Dave Burton, perhaps 20 years ago? Since then the technology has changed out of all recognition, Dave’s eye has remained constant, he is an experienced, master of his craft.
Most of our work is medium sized furniture and product design and our requirements can be quite complex requiring props and room sets.
Dave tackles our jobs with an extraordinary energy and enthusiasm. His unique perspective very often lifts our work on to another level and in a direction we hadn’t considered.
Dave’s dynamic photographic style enhances our work, surprises and wows, the photographs are good enough to eat.
While I write this message on my computer I suddenly realise my screen saver is one of Dave’s beautiful images - thanks Dave."
Nigel James Mac-Fall
"We have been using 68b for our food photography for the last couple of years. They have transformed our image, and provided us with completely unique and inspirational pictures to win over our clients, and given us with a strong USP in our market. The impact on our sales has been tenfold. Working on projects with Jess and Dave is great fun. They are constantly coming up with new innovative ideas, which excites and motivates the whole team, and their enthusiasm is contagious. They are a total breath of fresh air."
"68b really get under the skin of the brief to understand both the commercial and creative requirements to ensure they delivered
on all fronts."
