Photography
Neville Mounford-Hoare Photography

Free consultation service for members! If you are in need of fresh creative imagery but don’t know where to start or what approach to take then get in contact!

I am a freelance commercial photographer, with over 20 years industry experience.

Specialising in product, beverage, food and lifestyle imagery I have worked with many well-established brands, producing imagery for editorial, web and advertising use.

 Having mainly worked within London I am now living in Kent and working with many local companies and design agencies.

As a produced in Kent member I am therefore looking to help provide other members with a better quality of imagery, be that for whatever use required.

 Photography is important for any business, but good professional photography is vital for any company wishing to project an appearance of quality and unfortunately cutting corners with imagery is far too often very apparent.

 The requirement for quality also extends to simple imagery such as packshots, which is an area frequently overlooked and undervalued. I therefore offer a dedicated packshot service, providing high quality images at cost effective rates no matter the quantity of images required, making it more economical than you may think.

You can view my packshot rates click here - http://www.nevillemountford-ho...

I also offer member a free consultation service, so if you are in need of fresh creative imagery but don’t know where to start or what approach to take then why not get in contact. I would be very happy to meet and discus with you your needs and how I could help.
