Bondholder Cactus Images has marked its tenth anniversary with the launch of a new brand image and website.
Cactus Images was founded by Angela Jenkins and Chris Howard, who met during their second year studying for a degree in commercial photography at the University of Derby. The business started life at the university’s Banks Mill creative studios, before relocating in 2010 to Friar Gate Studios and have subsequently expanded to their current home in the penthouse studio at Marble Hall.
During this time, Cactus Images has established itself as one of the region’s leading commercial photography and post-production studios, specialising in product, commercial, business portraits and food photography.
As the business has grown and developed over the years, Cactus Images is now able to offer a wide range of services to support and strengthen its photography projects, including creative planning, prop sourcing, styling and set builds.
These fully integrated services allow Cactus Images to work with a broad client base, which includes local SMEs and national brands such as FujiFilm, Morrisons Flowerworld, Hypnos Contract Beds and East Midlands Trains.
Cactus Images’ 10th anniversary coincides with the most successful period in its history, with a variety of exciting commissions for a wide range of clients across the UK.
In order to support these core services and business growth, Angela and Chris have recently recruited Laura Parry, who has more than a decade’s experience within the creative sector.
Laura has been responsible for the company rebrand and the development of a new website, which will better reflect the range of services now offered by the team.
Commenting on the company’s 10th anniversary and continued expansion, Angela Jenkins said:
“Our ten-year anniversary has come at a really exciting time in our development, with lots of interesting creative projects for some high profile new clients, together with the arrival of Laura, who will enable us to continue with our expansion plans.”
