A creative vision for your company

It only takes a fraction of a second for a customer to form a visual first impression. To look at your photographs or video introduction and decide if they like what they see.

No pressure.

But now you know that, doesn’t it make sense to work with professionals who understand how to shape that first impression?

A commercial photographer and videographer can create the standout visual media your company needs to engage and connect with your audience.

This is where we come in.

About MV Visual Media

Our director, Mark Varney, puts the ‘MV’ in MV Visual Media.

He’s a commercial photographer and videographer who’s dedicated to capturing businesses at their best. And he’s been documenting life from behind the lens since 2006.

Mark found his passion for visual media while travelling. He says:

“I’d been travelling around the UK and abroad and was so inspired, I wanted to capture everything I saw! From wild sea otters in Scotland to white-capped albatross in New Zealand — and all the stunning landscapes inbetween. To master my craft, I’ve worked with clients in a diverse range of industries, on a wide variety of projects. And my photographs have been published in magazines across the UK and Europe.”

Today, MV Visual Media offers commercial photography and videography services to businesses all over the UK.

Attention to detail is important to you

Our director, Mark, is a former toolmaker for the aerospace and automotive industries, so he really understands the 3-dimensional space and the importance of small details. This is something he takes seriously and insists on in all our visual media projects.

You need photographs and video

We offer both commercial photography and videography to give you a complete visual media package. This assures you exceptional continuity of service and helps you achieve a consistent brand style across all your visual media projects.

You don’t like having your picture taken

If you feel awkward when there’s a camera pointing at you, you’re not alone. Lots of people feel this way. And we completely understand.

When we’re shooting your photographs or video, we do everything we can to help you feel relaxed and comfortable. Because this is when you behave most naturally and your personality shines through.

Clients find working with us a fun experience and some forget about the camera all together. When they see the photographs, their reactions are always positive. Even those who tell us they don’t photograph well are amazed by their results.

When you work with us, you can rest assured you’re in safe hands.
