It has been a real pleasure working with you. Your calm and considered approach makes the whole experience stress free, and I was absolutely certain from the get go that you understood the kind of images I was hoping to achieve.
The results have been above and beyond what I had hoped for – clean and elegant, the images have a wonderful sophisticated feel.
It is also a real bonus to be able to shoot the product and creative shots with one photographer – your attention to detail is second to none.
I wouldn’t work with anyone else!

illicia - Luxury leather bags by Mark Colliton

Some sample images below taken from several photoshoots in the lead-up to the launch of new fashion brand Illicia.
Illicia specialises in the finest quality Italian made leather bags with the distinguishing ability to choose and interchange the multi-coloured handles on offer.
The product combines timeless qualities, finest craftsmanship & with a vibrant edge, all of which we aimed to reflect in the product photography which includes product packshots, modelled & creative still-lifes.

As soon as I walked into Mark’s studio I knew I was in safe hands. He made me feel at ease and listened to my crazy creative ideas then made it happen.
Our handbags were not the easiest subjects to work with and his ability to remain calm in what was a chaotic situation is testament to his character.
His attention to detail and work ethic were second to none.
The quality of his images is beyond my expectations and we will keep going back for more.
