"Beauty can be seen in all things, seeing and composing the beauty is what separates the snapshot from the photographer"
- Matt Hardy
A little bit about us...Gareth is a professional portrait and fashion/commercial photographer and Lizzi is a professionally trained make up artist. Together we are Franklin & Bailey; a unique company that collaborates as a photographer and make up artist to provide something different and individual to clients from the dance, modelling and theatre industry.
Before creating Franklin & Bailey we have both enjoyed successful 10 year careers in the musical theatre industry; working in the west end, touring internationally and around Europe and the UK. Between us we have 20 years experience of the world our clients occupy or are about to head into and so it's a real pleasure to be able to share our experiences and be a small cog in a huge machine which is each persons special journey in the theatre industry.
We offer a bespoke service where every client has a make up artist provided on their shoot for the duration as standard. We also provide the opportunity for the client and the agent to be able to view the images from the photoshoot within 48 hours. With exclusive access to a private online gallery both the agent and the client can view the images, correspond, mark favourites and select images to be retouched. Franklin and Bailey provide every client with a photoshoot experience that is personal, professional and reliable.
Over the last 3 years Franklin & Bailey have been privileged enough to work with students from colleges such as Urdang, Bodywork, Wilkes Academy, Laine Theatre Arts, Millennium Performing Arts, Bird College, Italia Conti, London Studio Centre, LIPA and many more. We are very excited to continue expanding and to work with new professionals, new students and graduates and to collaborate with agencies and colleges. Also to be able to provide our personal service and efficient system that we offer.
