Visual Marketing Agency DT Studios in Kidderminster are celebrating their first anniversary. The agency formed when two already well-established business leaders decided to go ahead with a friendly merger rather than ‘re-invent the wheel’. Doug Anderson was principle photographer and video specialist at DAP Photography & Video and Terry ran Terry Livesey Photography. They spotted a gap in the market for a specialist agency, offering photography, video and design as part of an overall marketing strategy.
The new marketing agency has a state-of-the-art studio in Kidderminster and specialises in producing outstanding Visual Media materials. The first year trading results have been impressive, and the agency have plans to expand further in the next 3 years. “Technology changes are driving more companies to turn to visual media to market their business” says Doug Anderson “however they often lack in-house expertise to produce professional results. It’s not just the filming process that makes a difference, it’s the planning that goes into a good video and the editing that’s done after shooting that enables a viewer to appreciate the better quality of the end product”.
Doug started his marketing career in the manufacturing sector, and this has given him the perfect platform to understand the needs of his clients and deliver the right solutions for them. Ten years’ experience as a photographer and videographer means he has developed a good creative eye to provide the best results for clients. Terry has a background working in
Film production. He then built a successful IT business but decided to go back to his first love, photography and video production, in 2009. The balance of expertise means there is a strong leadership team in the new agency.
The DT Studios directors share the ambition to expand into a larger regional agency by helping local companies get innovative and build better visual marketing strategies.
