16:9 Photography


In pursuit of diverse image-making, 16:9 rails against compromise, explores seldom-charted digital techniques, cajoles incompatible equipment into getting along, and wilfully disrespects conventions for the edification of diverse image-makers. Preferred maxim: if it ain't broke, break it.

In the real world we take pictures of buildings
and meaningless advertising industry stuff like tortoises, hairgrips, salad, and string.
Based in the UK, we shoot and train anywhere. Call Mark Welsh on 01782 621225 to discuss a brief or quote or browse a portfolio:
