About us – Delicia

about us - Delicia about us About Us pic of delicia1

Delicia is a designer maker. She has trained extensively within the creative sector, studying to HND level and achieving distinctions for much of her work. She has taken on a variety of successful commissions over the years, including designing the logo for a local play centre in Pontyclun. It is now her intention to use the experiences she has gained from working on commissions and assisting Richard with his work in the past, to create a strong business that positively secures their future. Delicia will take on a practical role in the studio, operating the machinery but also is a driving force for creating new products and is a confident and competent user of photoshop. The design and manufacture of textile products that will allow the expansion of aspects of the business into more bespoke and creative outlays (such as online sites like etsy.com) will be Delicia’s responsibility too.

 

About us – Richard

About us - Richard about us About Us Richard 2

Richard trained as a photographer in Nottingham and currently has 2 qualifications in photography and digital imaging including hand printing images in colour and black and white, he excelled at digital imaging achieving a distinction in photoshop skills.

Richard has worked as a high street photo lab technician and he has also been self employed as a photographer in Nottingham and South Wales specialising in location and studio based photography. The bulk of Richard’s work in Nottingham was commercial photography, working with local small businesses and large corporations alike. He also worked for the local authority to produce some of their marketing materials. Before moving to South Wales, Richard had worked with a variety of vehicle manufacturers such as Lexus, Seat, Chrysler & Audi.

When Richard moved to South Wales, he set up a studio that offered both commercial photography and family portraiture; this business grew well and exceeded all the expectations of both Richard and the bank. Unfortunately just 18 months into working in the studio, he was forced to take a break from work. However now he is in the position to resume full time work, with the constant use of some specialist equipment.

With the use of his contacts within the industry and the creation of new contacts, both Richard and Delicia are confident that they can create a strong business that will be rooted within the local community and they both are determined to make The Studio a household name, we will be adding more to this ‘About Us’ page as time goes on.

We truly believe that its not all about us, we would not have any success without the great customers that we have worked with over the years, if anything this about us page should link to the testimonials as our focus is on our customers, their happiness and positive experiences with us.
