About Us

Ark Studios is a professional photography and marketing studio run by photographer Gareth Blakemore in the West Midlands. Myself and my team of talented individuals  have worked with many brands across the world in helping with their advertising and marketing mainly within the beauty, health, fashion and luxury goods sectors. 

On the high-end advertising side we are very pro-active, results driven and spend a great deal of time understanding your marketing goals. We push the boundaries on new ideas and concepts, then implement those ideas into practice. Photography, advertising and marketing whether 'Above or Below the line' is all about coming up with new innovative thinking not just doing the same as everyone else!

We always make sure strategies and implementations are done professionally and to the highest standard. Having worked in all the key marketing disciplines, exhibitions, photography, video production, digital/print marketing and web design, plus working on a diverse range of projects, I'm sure we can bring something to the table that would help improve your business marketing strategy and strengthen your market share.

Attract more customers with digital marketing

Video marketing is a fantastic way to get people interested in your product or service and getting them to attend your exhibition stand. Give any potential visitor a ‘sneaky peek’ of what to expect and get them intrigued enough to actually pay you a visit. Keep information to a minimum, you don't want to give too much away, leaving your audience wanting more so they will be encouraged to attend.

Video digital marketing is also very versatile – you can include it as a link within your email, on your website, blog, social media, or even on Instagram. Always encourage your viewers to share your video on their social media to generate even more interest.

When it comes to promoting your exhibition stand, don’t just think about how you’re going to promote it whilst you’re there. Using digital marketing in the run up to the event can often guarantee you more visitors to your stand.

You can even do an after event video, collect all your visitors business cards and email who attended. Send them a thank you video via email with a reminder of the services or new products you can provide along with any special offers, a great way to remember you post show.

"We are really impressed with the job Gareth has done on the stand it looks fantastic, the video of our stock is amazing and the resolution is brilliant. Really stands out in a crowded room."
