A qualified and experienced photographer with over 20 years experience, covering all styles of photography across the company from product shoots to building sites and everything in-between. Ange leads the company from the ground - still shooting on major projects as well as looking after the business development and operations of the team.

Jeanette Doherty

BSc (Hons), MSc
Company Director / Photographer

A commercial photographer with a passion for the great outdoors; specialising in property, construction and event photography. With a scientific background, a process-driven approach to photography is combined with an un-tapped creative flair that was always waiting to be freed from the lab environment. Jeanette heads up our property photography department and she's often found with a bunch of estate agents keys or crouching in a bath to get the perfect angle! In her spare time she can be found in the hills mountain biking, walking with her dogs or with her nose in a book.

Jason Thompson

B.Ed (Hons)
Head of Film Production

Jason has an enviable track record as a Producer/Director of Photography and brings a wealth of experience and a passion for beautiful film-making to the team. His skills and creative vision enable us to create films that have an edge. They are engaging, personal, cinematic stories that feature clients in a positive, memorable way. When not behind a camera or in the depths of some post-production, Jason is a keen musician and also runs his very own exclusive gigs at his home venue, 'The Argyle Rooms' in Northumberland.

Liam Norman

Studio Manager

Liam joined the team with a raw passion for photography and film-making. Whilst he learns and perfects his practical craft, he looks after our studio in The Biscuit Factory and takes care of our post-production. He's often found amidst thousands of files in Lightroom or Photoshop, backing up the company images for all of our photographers and generally making sure that our clients receive their images on time and at the highest quality. Outside work, Liam is a keen MMA fighter and lover of European culture.

Claire Gibson

Executive Assistant

Claire is the oil that keeps the machine running! She looks after our client bookings and enquiries; liaises with suppliers and locations as well as digging into the dreaded accounts and keeping them up to date on a daily basis. Claire works remotely and also from our city centre studio but she's always on the end of a phone or email if the team or customers need her. She also represents the company at business expos and promotional exhibitions. In her spare time, Claire looks after her three girls and enjoys hosting fabulous cocktail parties.

Morgan Stephenson

Associate Photographer/Film

Morgan is a multi-disciplined associate team member of The Bigger Picture, specialising as a DOP (Director Of Photography) for the moving image side of the business and also leads on creative stills. He has numerous credits in both TV and the Cinema to his name and over the last 18 years Morgan has gained massive experience in producing compelling, authentic, stories for the screen. Morgan's stills work has the cinematic style as his moving pictures, lending itself beautifully to PR campaigns and marketing materials. He's also a keen trainer and public speaker; loving nothing more than up-skilling the next generation of photographers and film makers.

Jack, Dizzy and Toby

Studio Dogs

Wreaking havoc in the studio are our three studio 'helpers' (biscuit snafflers). Often found snoozing in front of a radiator or under a desk, they always prove a big hit with our visitors!
