Focus on Beautiful

Well, KTBB does stand for Know to be Beautiful! (inspired by a quote by William Morris, which has always resonated with us).

Based in Chellaston, Derby, we specialise in commercial product photography, creating "hero" shots suitable for print, advertising campaigns, websites and social media.

Whatever your business, how important is it to show love, passion and pride in what you do?

The fact is, if you want your customers to love your work, it's incredibly important to show them how much you do - and few things do that as well as a truly striking image.

We love what we do. Why not get in touch, and we'll create an image or film that shows your customers why they should, too!

NB. Even though we've cut the resolution and quality of our original images down for the web, some of the photos are still quite large, so may take a moment to download. Our videos are hosted on YouTube, so may appear pixellated initially, until sufficient data has been downloaded.

Beautiful Photography

We offer a wide range of photography services, including commercial/product, portraits, property and aerial. We also enjoy landscape and creative work, and we have a curated selection of our prints available to purchase in our Etsy store.

Where appropriate, we'll combine photography and videography, to provide a complete solution to your requirements.

  • Crafting Festive Spirits with Light and Magic

    As the festive season approaches, we're reminded that the art of product photography is not just about capturing an image, but about telling a story that resonates with the viewer. Today, we want to share the creative journey behind two of our recent shoots that encapsulate the essence of the holidays with Withers Gin.

  • Using ChatGPT to create LinkedIn posts

    Having enjoyed playing with Photoshop's Generative AI, this morning, I asked ChatGPT to "Generate a LinkedIn post for our Product Photography Business", and after a couple of small edits (No, America, it's "...ise", NOT "...ize") this is what I got:

  • Photoshop's new Generative A.I. - The AIpocalypse?

    Along with every other photographer on the planet, we've been having some fun exploring AI!

    The first photo is a shot of a delicious Toffee Vodka by Kin Vodka, which we found at a food fair a couple of weeks ago. This was done in our studio, with props and careful lighting to make sure the bottle and the brand really shine.

Photographic Art

We've said it before, and we'll say it again - We LOVE what we do!

Our artwork is available to purchase through our Etsy store, KTBBPhotoArt. Why not take a look to see what's available...

We're constantly enhancing the range, but if there's a particular shot in our portfolio that's captured your imagination that we don't yet have available, or you want a custom size or even an alternate message, then please do get in touch, and we'll get it sorted for you in the blink of an eye!

Julia Dallimore

Julia Dallimore (She's beautiful)

For over 30 years I worked in marketing, specialising in direct response. I’ve worked with start-ups and FTSE 250 companies, managing multi-million pound budgets to drive cost effective response. I’ve managed award-winning creative and media agencies, commissioned many TV adverts and a full range of other digital and offline media activities, events and publications.

But I’ve always had a passion for photography and video, so I now apply my big-budget experience to deliver results for organisations with more limited resources.

Getting hands-on with jobs I’d always ‘outsourced’ is an absolute joy. I only wish I’d done it sooner!

Adam Jackson (He's not beautiful)

Both my parents were professional photographers, so naturally I spent more than 30 years in IT, delivering innovative technology solutions for businesses of all shapes & sizes, after they both talked me out of following in their footsteps.

Like Julia, I’ve had a life-long passion for creative photography. I also love gadgets and aviation, and I built this website. I’m a CAA-qualified drone pilot, so we are able to offer a full range of aerial photography and videography, in addition to ground-based services and full post-production capabilities.

As Confucius said, “Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life”.
