#NOTBORING

Stand Out Studio is a commercial imaging company offering extensive photography services from our space in Gloucestershire.

Eye catching images are imperative when it comes to promoting your company in magazines, promotional material or on your website. The last thing customers want to see is a selection of stock images with little or no identity. The best way of achieving engagement is to show relevant and unique photography.

Alongside our content creation services we also offer photographic consultancy for those looking to improve their website or social media streams. Our work in this field covers both the narrative, design and image flow of existing content as well as technical training for marketing and social media teams looking to improve their photography skills.

The Photographer

Carl Hewlett is a professional photographer based in Gloucestershire in the south west of England and is the director of Stand Out Studio Ltd. Having studied photography at City of Westminster College and at the University of Westminster, he has a wide technical understanding of the medium. He began his photographic career by volunteering his spare time for local events, music and commissioned portraiture. 

These experiences along with a young, yet vibrant portfolio enabled Carl to secure his first professional role as a staff photographer with Newsquest Media at the Stroud News & Journal in September 2010. He spent three years with the SNJ covering an array of different news stories, events and sporting fixtures. In August 2013 Carl made the move to TWM, a well established photographic agency where he honed his skills covering events, PR, news stories and premiership rugby on an international scale. 

In the summer of 2017 Carl set up Stand Out Studio Ltd in Gloucestershire to use his whole gamut of skills in a new way. Stand Out Studio offers high quality photographic services to commercial clients across the country in areas such as editorial, fashion, product, e-commerce, portraiture and PR.
