More About Our Company

Want to get ahead in marketing your small business in South West France? Then you need a commercial marketing video production!

Hello, I’m Simon and my company is FIREHORSE PHOTOGRAPHY, working throughout South West France, with experience of more than 650+ commissions over the last 15+ years.

I mainly specialise in commercial marketing video based productions for small businesses, with an option for photography.

I look for the story in projects, seeking out and capturing a visual narrative from the human perspective.

My background is 2 years at Harrogate College of Art & Technology followed by 3 years at Kent Institute of Art & Design, mostly spent mucking about in the darkroom.

After that, I worked as a commercial photography and graphic design junior for a company called HRI International based in Kent, UK.

When I moved back to my native North Yorkshire, I created FIREHORSE PHOTOGRAPHY as a mainly specialist wedding photography based business and that is still a string to my bow here: www.firehorsephotographyfrance.com

My studio is located in the Gers (in Gondrin between Condom & Eauze) within 2 hours of: Bergerac, Bordeaux and Toulouse.

Please note that the majority of the projects featured on this site are from the UK prior to moving to France and mostly photography based. After relocating to France in 2016, I have switched focus to a primarily video based approach. Photography however is still available as an add on!

Please feel free to contact me in regard to your project and for a zero obligation chat & quote.

I hope to hear from you soon,

Simon
