Who we are
Stills & Motion was founded in 2019 by photographers and filmmakers Finn Richards and Simon Walsh. Together with creative consultant, Ciana March we have built a new kind of studio, one that’s centred on collaboration and creativity. We’re a network of like-minded image makers and thinkers who are dedicated to crafting meaningful stories.
The Stills & Motion network consists of partners (who are actively involved in the day-to-day running of Stills & Motion), associates (a network of trusted and respected freelance professionals), and producers (who support our clients and execution in the smooth running of their projects).
What we believe
We believe good work comes from having the freedom to experiment beyond ‘the brief’. High-pressure agency environments can mean personal projects take a back seat, while many freelance creatives lack the support to tackle large projects.
Stills & Motion offers the best of both worlds: a creatively fruitful network of freelancers and a professional support system our clients can rely on.
How we work
Working with Stills & Motion means you benefit from direct contact with your chosen creative and their producer. As your project grows, so does our team. We carefully select the most suitable collaborators based on long-standing relationships, creativity and ingenuity. Our experienced producers can manage and deliver ambitious projects both efficiently and effectively.
We work with brands and organisations to identify and visualise original and meaningful stories. Our clients include drink, fashion and food brands, musical and cultural entities, design and advertising agencies and instigators of social change. Our work is considered, our approach is collaborative and our execution is meticulous.
