Horton-Stephens Photographers Agents London

Horton-Stephens, London's leading photographers' agents for over 25 years, have been busy as usual shooting stills and moving image from online content to TVC. Featured in this Spotlight is a selection of new work, but be sure to visit the site for a full run-down.

Horton-Stephens is well-known for representing a world-class group of photographers, but moving image has become a bigger and bigger part of what the team do. Great production remains key to the success of all their shoots. They’re friendly and approachable, with an encyclopaedic knowledge of lighting, casting, locations (in the UK and worldwide), set building, timings, post-production, cgi and moving image - whether shooting TVCs or on the back of TVCs - they’ve done it all!

They also look after two CGI outfits. They have always worked alone in small, darkened rooms isolated from the real world and are therefore very well placed to create without limit and without human contact. In current times it can be an answer for productions that would be otherwise impossible.
