Jim Stokes Photography launches

I'm happy to announce the launch of my photographic services www.jimstokesphotography.com is now live and I'm taking film & photography commissions.


So far I've delivered press and PR portraits that have been published in The Guardian and BBC 6 music online. My best shoot and shots so far were from a shoot with The Beats Ranking Roger.

I've always been an image-making graphic designer, and have been art directing professional shoots for over twenty years. So its nice to be running around the country, meeting people and capturing great images.

New photo montages

From an impromptu shoot with a friend on Brighton beach - a sea mist face us a perfect soft box light with no horizon - I found myself with a set of images that I owned and could publish at will. So I got creative and came top with these. you can see the full shoot here.

Book cover designs

During a rare lull and after some camera based travel I sat down and designed covers for my favourite novels with my photography.











Freelance creative takes budgets further

Graphic design, photography, copywriting and art direction

If you’re a small business or an experienced marketing director who can’t afford the full service of an agency, then hiring an experienced freelancer might be the way to get the best out of your budget.

The Salvage cafe brochure is a great example of a full service project designed and delivered by yours truly. I spoke to the client, carried out a few photoshoots and then designed the brochure, whilst writing the copy and tailoring the language to the style and culture of the cafe.
