Photographic team David Crookes & Nicola Jackson create visual languages with images and words - their commissions allow them to roam from the editorial world into commercial assignments and enjoy the beautiful cross-pollination of both head-spaces. Their work uses their distinctive photographic and creative director backgrounds to create campaigns of imagery that create a sense of place like nobody else. C&J build brands by starting with a core group of images, then a clear tone of voice - the result is a powerful ethos. 


C&J have lived on two continents, collaborated for 23 years and travelled to more than 60 countries together. Both have Honours degrees in Fine Art, post-grads in colour theory and copywriting, respectively, as well as skill-sets and instincts that connect and enhance their shared aesthetic. As a team, C&J are commissioned to create visual languages for editorial stories, brands, hotels, lodges and countries. Besides image making, they also conceptualise and design projects with a 'storybook' offering - C&J will photograph your brand and also design and build your websites, brand books, brand-films, e-brochures and marketing comms. Everything that leaves their agency is crafted.
