TALK TO 3Objectives

About Us

We’re passionate about photography.  Particularly fashion.  And product.  And still life.  And location.  In fact, anything that requires us to capture images at their very best and provide you with the highest quality files to your specifications and deadlines.

We’re a small, specialist team offering a personal service that includes not only photographers but also retouchers, creatives and stylists. Our modern studio is a 2-minute walk from Oval underground station and includes full proof viewing facilities and an on-site café.

3Objectives are partnered with ec2i who are an award winning media production company and this partnership gives us access to online image approval and digital asset management systems meaning you can view, annotate and approve your images from anywhere at any time!

We are also able to draw on ec2i's firepower of 60+ specialist staff across photography, styling, retouching and production.  Add that to their interiors/lifestyles room sets (complete with windows and natural light) and we’ve got a package that’s second to none.

They stand out from other studios with their personal approach and positivity - no job too big for this small team. Whether you give them a brief and a deadline, or if you're down in the studio art directing with them, 3Objectives always deliver a sterling service. A small business with big ambitions.”



Mei An Collier
Art Director
White Stuff Ltd.

“3 Objectives are always my first choice for creative still-life photography. Paul and the team have been a pleasure to work with for twelve years now, providing me with faultless work, which is always on time and at great rates. The pick up and drop off courier service they provide is fantastic too, which on a busy day really helps. 3 Objectives will always be my first port of call for stunning digital photography.”


David Rice
Art Director, Sunday Times Travel Magazine

“Twelve years in the industry (which has seen a lot of changes) and I still rely on Paul and the 3 Objectives team to deliver great pictures on time and on budget. 

They are a joy to work with and ensure we receive a professional service by providing in-house retouching, a top studio, and courier drop off and pick up. They are a passionate and creative team, who I can trust and rely on.”


Laura Beckwith
Senior Picture Editor, Good Housekeeping

“3 Objectives have continuously provided an excellent still life service to us here at ELLE magazine.  They are both professional and excellent at what they do.   They have always gone that extra mile to help us out with tight deadlines and considerable quantities of merchandise. I would highly recommend them as still life photographers and studio.”


Flora Bathhurst
Picture Editor, Elle Magazine

“We have worked with Paul Downes for over 7 years.  He is always the person I turn to to produce all my still life fashion images.  He works to such a high standard and can cope with any volume of work.  3 Objectives consistently produce high quality images to a very high standard and to deadline. I’d have no hesitation in recommending 3 Objectives to anyone looking for high quality photographic work.”


Sairey Stemp
Fashion Editor, Cosmopolitan Magazine

“I have worked with the 3 Objectives team for 9 years. During this time they have always met the necessary deadlines, sometimes at very short notice. They are a pleasure to work with, bringing attention to detail to every commission. No job is too big or too small and they have always been competitively priced. Their hassle free service is essential in the fast paced business of publishing and digital media. I recommend them unreservedly.”


Jennie Warner
Deputy Fashion Editor, Time Inc. Woman's Weekly

“I worked with 3Objectives on several advertorial projects - Paul and his team were incredibly accommodating with client requirements, often tricky deadlines, challenging set builds, and at times a cast of 1,000 in the studio, all with varying opinions on how the shoot was shaping up!

3Objectives were super knowledgeable, creative without being overly intrusive in the process and very patient! I could rely on them come what may.”
