Vervate: Who we are
We are VERVATE, a Brighton based award winning team of professional photographers and visual storytellers.
We’ve decades’ of experience, helping businesses of all sizes across a range of sectors – construction, retail, healthcare, charities and education.
We’ll work closely with you to understand the needs and nuances of your project, be it portrait shots of your team, images for your marketing materials and website, or a full PR campaign.
We see the things you are often too close to to be able to articulate – and we capture that value in vibrant, engaging photographs.
Then we help you to make the most of those images. They’ll be working round the clock, in prime positions on your website; wooing new fans on social media; telling the right story on a press release.
Photos that bring your value to life.
VERVATE: Our Company Ethos
Community and Business Involvement
At Vervate, we are passionate about where we live in Brighton and Hove. We are well known and respected in the area and as a result have an amazing network of contacts.
We support charities (national and local) by offering a reduced rate for commissions as well as supporting a charity each year for free.
Charities of the Year 2018
Ok, so now we have two….!
We are privileged to continue to support the amazing Refugee Support Europe. They have extended their work to Bangladesh, as well as continuing to support refuges in Greece.
If you have any interest in this kind of work, please do sign up to the monthly newsletter, which we produce on their behalf. We’ll put an updated sign up form here once we have finished tackling GDPR *love it* In the meantime, their website is full of updated content.
So, 2016 was the year of the Snowdog (remember Roodle?!). 2018 is the year of the snail! Vervate were really happy to be asked to be official photography partners again. It is such a fun, positive and beneficial campaign – also a very visual one that likes lots of press and media attention, so right up our street!
Keep up to date with their story by following them on social media.
Vervate Charity of the Year 2017
With backgrounds in business and after 6 months involved in humanitarian relief in Calais, John Sloan and Brighton businessman Paul Hutchings founded Refugee Support in April 2016 to support the refugees in Greece and across Europe.
Vervate are supporting their absolutely amazing work by producing a monthly newsletter to nearly 2000 subscribers. This is an on-the-ground, proactive organisation that puts AID WITH DIGNITY as a highest priority. Please do sign up, see the newsletter – donating is obviously incredibly important, but so is spreading the word about what they do and staying in the loop with this crisis.
Vervate Charity of the Year 2016
2016 was the year of the Snowdogs by the Sea campaign. We are really looking forward to continuing supporting The Martlets with their next Wild In Art project later in 2017 too. Here is a BLOG about how that worked for us, and a short video by Sarah, Campaign Manager for the Snowdogs:
Feel confident in trusting us to deliver first rate images, service and value.
