MEET THE TEAM
RACHEL SMITH - Bookings Manager
I joined Imagine in 2011 and am now working in the office full time, booking families in for their portrait experiences. You're most likely at some point to be chatting with me, with all the info and advice about your upcoming photo session.
With a family of my own I really appreciate the true value of having such beautiful family portraits to capture and treasure memories of your children as they grow. You can take a look at my very own family collection on our Facebook wall by clicking here.
I look forward to speaking with you soon x.
LIVI STEWARD - Photographer
Getting my first pro camera as a teenager and realising the amazing images that you could capture really inspired me to pursue a career in photography.
Studying for my photography degree developed my true passion to be a portrait photographer. For me it has always been about the people in the photographs and connecting with them. Imagine gives me the very best environment, with the giant studio & the stunning locations to produce truly amazing family portraits. I look forward to getting to know you and your family to then capture those incredible memories for you to enjoy forever!
RICHARD MAIDMENT - Viewings & Sales
Working as a photographer myself I can really appreciate the quality and expertise of everyone at Imagine, I've been part of the team since 2013 and really enjoy the relaxed and natural style of imagery we produce.
I have been living in the Wiltshire area my whole life but love to travel and have a keen interested in photojournalism. I studied BA photography at the University of the Arts, London and taking photos has always been my hobby and passion since I was a child.
What I like most about working with Imagine is meeting new people and seeing the joy on their faces when they view their pictures for the first time. Families are able to choose and design their own unique piece of art which they'll cherish forever.
CHLOE SAUNDERS - Bookings & Admin
Hello, I first came to Imagine on work experience during my second year at college, whilst studying Art & Design. Photography is something I have a real passion for, along with painting and upcycling furniture in my spare time.
Being given the chance to join Imagine's team straight out of college and at a young age is more than I could have hoped for.
Imagine has been my baby since 2006 and I can only say that I am absolutely nuts about it! I love meeting new families and seeing previous families come back, particularly when there are new additions!
You will be most likely to see me at your portrait viewing, as I get the fun bit where the magic comes together, in turning your photographs in to stunning wall displays. I look forward to meeting your family soon!
NEIL WITHERS - Photography Director
Hi, thanks for taking a moment to read about us, I’ve been a professional for 12 years now, cutting my teeth in the North West with the big name studios up there. 7 years at Imagine has gone by in a flash!
I started out on film as a teenager, carrying my beat up Pentax K1000 everywhere. Taking Nightscapes of Blackpool was my thing, getting dazzled by the bright lights, skateboarders & the seafront.
After photographing 5000+ families in my time you’d think nothing would surprise me anymore, but something new always pops up to keep me on my toes!
