STM Photography chooses Refresh PR

Specialist food and drink photography studio, STM Photography, has chosen fellow Manchester-based Refresh PR to raise awareness of the unique professional capabilities of the studio.

The experienced food and drink studio, based in Ancoats in Manchester city centre, is fully equipped with the latest in specialist equipment and lighting, kitchens, chilled and frozen storage, client work areas, and extensive prop stores, all of which ensure the best results.

Together with a roster of leading food stylist, client chefs and development teams, the team work both from the studio and on location. With existing clients including bars, restaurants, retailers, food manufacturers and a number of well-known chefs, the agency's proven track record will be used to underpin the PR campaign.

Darren Hickson, photographer at STM, commented: "We have been working around food and drink for over 10 years for clients within the food and drink industry, including Simon Rimmer, Masterchef, national brands and marketing agencies. With so many successful food and drink brands based here in the north, on top of the teams experience, we are also convenient and do not have the overheads of Central London.

"After a period of significant investment, which has seen the expansion of the studio and its facilities, it is time for us to really start shouting about what we do. With a background of working with clients in the food and drink sector, Refresh PR was the obvious PR partner for us to choose. The team has exciting ideas, great contacts and solid experience to help us deliver our strategy so we cannot wait to get started."

The PR campaign will launch with a series of events targeting in-house marketers, marketing agency teams, food bloggers and journalists. It will integrate trade and regional PR with a heavy emphasis on utilising photo-based social media tools to reach the niche target audiences.
