Exceptionally talented with all forms of SLR, large and medium format as well as digital photography and all forms of photographic developing, she makes the perfect choice for the Ablaze Graphics photographer.

  A Brief History of Ablaze Graphics:

Ablaze Graphics started life as a figment of Richard's imagination while he was at college in the mid 90's. After several jobs working for other design studios and the BBC as their resident intranet designer. Private commissions started mounting up.

Richard immediately saw the chance to be free, run his own business (and line his own pocket rather than his bosses) so Ablaze Graphics was officially born, in Bristol in December 2001.

Early funding came from a combination of savings and a Princes Trust loan. Ablaze Graphics blossomed from its immaculate conception into a promising (yet not without troubles) puberty. The skills for exceptional graphic design and website creation were there and work was coming in. The paperwork side was proving more troublesome as neither Dan nor Richard had run a business before. Stumbling through the minefield of red tape, accounts and tax returns, valiantly led by our Princes Trust mentor, stream lining occurred and it was amicably decided that Dan should be employed on a contractual basis.

Ablaze Graphics grew healthily in Bristol for several years, when it was decided that we would swap the hectic city life for the sunny, sandy, laidback shores of Falmouth, Cornwall. Replanted in the Sub tropical climate of Cornwall and fanned by the gulf stream, Ablaze Graphics matured into a solid and confident future. After a few years, we sadly had to say farewell to Cornwall to move closer to the demands from the London area for our services.

So Ablaze Graphics moved to Farnham, Surrey. About an hour from London and two from Bristol, its was the perfect situation to continue the laid back country life whilst still maintaining bigger clients in the cities.

We still are based there today, still contracting out the trickier back end website development jobs to Dan and the photography jobs to Alexandra. Our clients are happy, we are happy and life is good.
