Derby-based creative companies join forces

Two Derby-based creative companies have joined forces on a brand new business venture.


Averill Photography, which specialise in striking photographs, and Artifex Studios, which is known for its high-quality video content, have partnered to create ‘AV IT Media – which describes itself as "a powerhouse of photography and videography services".


Mark, owner of Averill Photography, and Ash, who started Artifex Studios, first met on a job at The Derby Conference Centre in 2010 and knew instantly they wanted to work together.


Having successfully grown their businesses independently over the past eight years and, with their services more in demand than ever, they’ve now decided to collaborate and create a company that combines both their talents.


Alongside four other team members, they offer commercial and personal photography and videography services for a variety of different clients but the automotive industry is where their skills really shine. They’ve already worked with a number of big name brands too including Listers, Alton Towers, Derby County Football Club and O2.


Speaking about the merger, Ash said: “Not only have I seen Mark produce some outstanding pieces of photography over the years, he’s also someone I consider a friend and I couldn’t think of anyone better to compliment my work and set up shop with.”


Mark said: “I am delighted to partner with such an experienced and talented photographer/videographer. ‘AV IT’ is a term used to describe engaging in an exciting activity without fear of failure and that’s exactly what I think we’ve done by creating ‘AV IT Media. We have some exciting times ahead, and look forward to sharing our work in the very near future.”
