Artisan Memorials Ltd is a family owned business, driven and inspired by the life long passion for lettering and calligraphy of its founder Mark Brooks. Mark has over 30 years experience as a professional Letter Carver and Monumental Mason, he has an extensive catalogue of public works and regularly teaches letter carving and calligraphy.

He is supported by his close family who share a passion for fine workmanship and customer service. Together they offer a sensitive, compassionate and reliable service which truly delivers the highest quality memorials available in the UK today. The photography was taken in Mark's workshop in Canterbury and as well as a mix of portraits that can be used for the brochure, website and social media outlets I captured some detailed images as well which can work well for fill ins on the website.

Lighting wise I used the Profoto A1 compact light and the larger B1 for the headstone images, plus some with natural light as Mark's studio has a large skylight that brought in some warmth to the images.
