We listen to what is needed, we explain what we can do, and then hopefully we move forward together, whilst realising that sometimes people's expectations cannot be guaranteed with their proposed budget, but we will always be honest and tell you!

Clients look for new suppliers because they perhaps feel they need new impetus. They want more than they are currently getting! Well at afp & v we listen, then listen some more, and then we offer solutions. At afp & v 
we will keep you appraised at all times when there are cost implications so there are never hidden charges.

Bio

Adrian was born in Sunderland and then cruised off to Zambia in Africa, for the first 7 years of life. What did this do to this young northern creative?  Well Adrian learnt to love mango's mostly and when he came back to the UK, he learnt to hate the cold! 

Adrian gained a BTEC National Diploma in Photography in Leeds at Kitson College, and then moved on to work with Tim Megson as his assistant, then junior photographer, and then...you guessed it, a fully fledged photographer. After 5 years learning he moved on to Camera 2, with Chris Rose and Derek Welbourne, and then went solo.

 

Nothing apart from a background in commercial photography working up the ladder so to speak, can prepare you for the stuff you have to do. From room sets decorating, painting, building walls, building gardens in the studio and shooting Christmas shots in July!

Adrian moved into video when the world went digital and into the 'Mac' world. And being honest the world changed, typographers disappeared, and retouching images got a lot easier....ha ha. I once paid a repro studio in Manchester £350 to clean some 'smile lines' from a beautiful models face; because even at 25....she looked old! Omg or what!

 

"Err, Mr Hufton you chose the model...can I have my money back please?" 

Adrian's first company was afp. This was Adrian Forrest Photography, and everything was great. But then video came along! So Adrian changed a little to accommodate that service and changed his company name to afp images. People will generally still hail my company as afp even though it keeps evolving and is now afp & v. But who cares really...we provide a quality service that our clients have become accustomed to and new customers love.
