Introducing CliQQ

A little bit about our studio.

About us

Founded in 2011, CliQQ Studios specialise in high-end stills and video content creation. We were formed from a crack team of pioneering and experienced visual artists who share an infectious drive to continue to be the best there is in still photography, high end retouching and video production.

Working in collaboration with magazine publishers, advertising agencies and directly with well known brands our experienced team of in house photographers, retouchers and production experts can provide the perfect solution to your stills and video requirements.

CliQQ brings the UK a totally cross-genre image making service. We work across almost every sector of visual production including celebrity, fashion, sport, beauty, interiors, textiles, food & drink, corporate portraits, events and high-volume catalogue or pack shot work. All of our quotes are bespoke and tailored to each specific job. We are able to offer full production services including crew, studio, equipment and post production to suit all budgets.

As well as our award winning studio based work we have a growing portfolio of productions filmed on location, of particular note is our series celebrating some of the UK’s finest Artisans.

CliQQ were by far the most professional and creative agency we have worked with for many years. So impressed were we with the images that we have shared them globally with our other branches and are using them on our biggest customer’s website.

I could not recommend the team highly enough.
