New stretch target

Wow! This has been an incredible journey! 


So, as we are on target to exceed the original plan, I can continue to gain pledges and now look to investing even further in Avant Photographic.

There is a whole range of video and film making equipment, even if I had £250, 000 I could still manage to spend it all on cameras, lenses, tripods, microphones, software, computers and high end tech. 

Initally, the plan was to become capable of providing dynamic and engaging videos for social media use. With the stretch Target now in sight, I can look to developing skills and buying equipment to extend my professional video offering to broadcast standard featurettes and longer films for companies to showcase on their websites. 

Thank you all for believing in me and my skills. 




Project aim

I need to raise funds for new photographic equipment to produce video for businesses to use on their websites and social media. 

About the project

I currently provide high quality photography for businesses to use on their websites and social media. My business is growing. I find myself:

  • Photographing nationwide for architects.
  • I photograph projects for local councils.
  • I help start ups get their company website populated with fantastic photos to help gain customers.
  • I work with international clothing brands.
  • I produce content for businesses to tell stories on social media.

 I want to offer video as part of my service package!

To do this, I need to raise about £5000 to invest in new video camera equipment to provide top quality videos for my cust

My business is growing rapidly and the next step for Avant Photographic is to invest in new equipment to produce amazing videos to tell the story of companies large and small. Videos and high quality photography is devoured on social media, potential reach is massive. Short films and videos telling stories about businesses encourage enquiries and  They are eagerly shared by social media users and are a great way for businesses to diferentiate themselves from competition.

Avant photographic is a well established business, mainly serving the South East but regularly covering the whole of The United Kingdom, clients include:

  • Kings Place Events
  • Jaguar - Jagtechnic
  • Skinny Chimp Gym Wear
  • NCP Car Parks ltd
  • Aedas RHWL
  • Cyclr
  • Towner Art Gallery
  • Eastbourne Borough Council

Avant Photographic had a huge project featured on the BBC website last year click here to view the article on the BBC website and has seen the interest in having high quality imagery provided by photographer Phil Burrowes increase dramatically. The decision to offer video has come from being approached on a weekly basis by companies wanting to excite and engage customers online with vibrant and unique imagery featuring their businesses - All it needs is a nudge of help to enable him to invest in new equipment in order to do so. 

 I do a mean line in Profile portraits, too!

LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook and even Tinder suggest professional portraits are better than a rubbish selfie taken on your mobile.. So, I produce high quality, dynamic and engaging portraits for people to use on their professional networks, or to get a date... 

Seriously, though.. You and your team should have professional portraits to show customers and clients who they are engaged with.  Profile portraits are now available as a reward for a £50 pledge!

The images from this full day shoot are some of my most engaged with images published on social media in 2015. The images now adorn JagTechnic'c new premises and a new website is being built featuring them, and others, produced for JagTechnic.

Chefs prepare for the lunchtime rush at Yummy Noodle. Image produced as part of a Day In The Life project for a complete website overhaul, which is now one of the most unique looking websites for a restaurant in Sussex. With loads of images to show customers the experience they will have eating at Yummy Noodle. Bright, vibrant and engaging, the photographs show brilliantly what an amazing restaurant this is. Only with such a unique project, like The Day In The Life Project could such a result be achieved.
