For the past fifteen months, Stuart Freeman has been photographing and offering branding advice to business owners and entrepreneurs in the Gloucester, Bristol, and South Wales areas.
“What makes us different is that we offer a highly personalized service, including a free photoshoot consultation, post-shoot support package, and branding advice for entrepreneurs, small to medium-sized business owners, designers, coaches, teams, and service providers. Another specialist service we provide is image repair and restoration, it is so gratifying to bring back to life people’s memories as we save precious photographs from being discarded.”
Stuart is the owner of f20 Photography, a Tewksbury native, born and raised, and a raving Cheltenham Town FC fan.
Stuart is what we like to call a Local Biz Hero, a self-made entrepreneur who brings true value to his community. High stands of professionalism and the strong work ethics of small business owners like Stuart are the backbone of the Gloucester local economy.
Every pound that Stuart makes goes back to supporting the local business ecosystem as the community as f20 Photography supports local charity “Gloucester and Swindon Mind.”
We sat down with Stuart for a quick interview to find out a bit more about him and his business.
Q: Why do you do what you do?
A: “What I love most is getting the absolute best quality images for my clients (my Level 3 diploma in photography has been valuable for this), particularly images which are aligned with the ethos and culture of my client’s business, this is so crucial for branding purposes. Most importantly, I love the personal, human-to-human connection when working in collaboration with my clients as I help them present a personal touch and the human side of their business.”
Q: How did you get into this profession?
A: “I have always had a passion for photography and creativity, so after three long years of preparation, I jumped in with both feet and launched f20 Photography just prior to the start of the pandemic.
The last year or so has been particularly challenging, but it has really awakened my passion for photography as a whole and as a business, and I have learned to be determined and self-reflective. It also made me realize how important having support is, particularly from my wife and Luke Burrow, who has mentored me as I grew my business.”
Q: What do you do in your spare time?
A: “I love to spend time with my wife and two children, reading, music, and of course watching Cheltenham play football.”
Q: If you could share one tip with the readers for choosing a photographer, what would it be?
A: “Spend time researching the industry and don’t go for the first person you find. Try and find a photographer who specializes in the type of images you want and who will understand your needs at a deeper level.“
– This is what some of Stuart’s clients say about him.
