Firstly, a very Happy New Year from all the staff here at HGR Studios. Apologies for the lack of blogs and content coming towards the end of year, but as you know it’s such a busy time for everybody! This has been an exciting year in the studio. We have taken on many exciting projects, and it’s been a real pleasure to have so many talented and innovate people come by and have meetings in our studio. We’ve photographed pretty everything this year, from fine Belgium chocolates to bra straps to cutting edge prototypes, we’ve seen and photographed it all. We are also now starting to arrange our photography students photo exhibition so once the venue has been decided details will be posted on the studio website so please check back soon.

In late January 2016, Phil Behan will also start a new photography course so please get in touch here or follow this link if you’re interested in joining.
