Thanks for visiting my little site. If you're here then you're probably after a bit more info about The Old Photo Factory. Founded in 2014, I set my own studio up after spending a few years within some of the UK's largest digital advertising agencies; and while I had some great experiences working on projects for some big names like John Lewis, Mizuno and Bench; those projects often had big price tags attached.  

That's where The Old Photo Factory comes in. I operate a small studio, just big enough really, so that I can deliver big results at very low costs for smaller companies who just want a simpler, more cost effective approach to e-commerce photography.

Matt McFadden.

Small Prices

We're a small company, so we really do understand that small companies need small costs.

That's why all of our photography services are priced at an affordable level for small businesses. We can do this because we don't have the same overheads as larger commercial studios, which means you don't end up receiving large invoices for simple services.

Big Quality

We're proud of our images, low cost doesn't mean low quality. 

With over 10 years of photographic experience and over five years working within some of the UK's best known advertising agencies, we've worked on photographic assignments for some big names, so we know a thing or two about high standards. That experience goes into each and every image we produce.

Some of our clients:


The Old Photo Factory has taken the hassle out of what would have been a long process in order to quickly turn around images of our products. I would not hesitate to recommend and use their services in the future. Fast, efficient and at a reasonable cost.

Matt is a very talented photographer that instantly understood what we needed. The delivery of the service was exactly as promised and he went far beyond what I expected to provide the high quality images that we were after. Value for money is a huge understatement – I would not hesitate to use his services again or recommend him to anyone looking for commercial product photography. We will certainly be working together again soon and I have to say, I am looking forward to it – the whole process is a pleasure compared to previous experiences with other service providers. Thanks again Matt for all your hard work, we now have the tools to truly promote our product.
— Mike Ewan; Sovereign Precision
Matt was a joy to work with - highly professional, timely, flexible and most importantly he built me a great-looking and easy to use website, which is a fantastic showcase for my product. His recommendations in terms of which provider to use were spot on and I have a website that beats my competition - who have been in the marketplace much longer than me - hands down AND I’ve had really positive feedback from my target customer market. I would definitely recommend Matt and I will look to work with him again when I launch more products in future.

The Old Photo Factory was exactly what we needed. The pricing was very fair, and clearly explained from the outset. We sent our products to them, and had the professional photos within a couple of days. The quality of the pictures is excellent, and has really enhanced our website.

Great communication throughout too. Would definitely recommend their services to any business looking for high quality images for great value. The team at Varsity Beard are looking forward to working with them again very soon.
— Nick King; Varisty Beard
We found Matt looking for a professional product photographer in the Stockport area as we were looking into having a new website built.
One week after our meeting our website was on its way and the final product was better than we had ever anticipated or imagined. Our photographs too are perfect; so crisp and HD they show what our products look like in real life.
Matt was professional, prompt and his customer service was fantastic.
Thank you Matt for our beautiful website, we have already had so much more interest in our brand! We have also had feedback from our Stockists and even some beauty and wedding bloggers to tell us how much they love it!
— Helen & Kitty; Love Honour & Be True
Thank you for your superb service and quality of work. As an online seller, one of our biggest challenges is to show a product to reflect the look & feel of the material & you did an amazing job.
— Numaan Ahmad; Damak
I can highly recommend Matt as he was professional yet friendly throughout the whole booking.
Photos were delivered on time and to the spec that we had specifically asked. We also booked him for our main photography with babies. Again, true professional as was he very easy going and patient with all the babies.
I would have no hesitation in recommending The Old Photo Factory for product photography.
