All Things Norfolk Directory
I’m Steven Sparkes, the man behind Perfect Pose Photography.
If you’re looking for an experienced photographer who is creative, full of ideas, and with a quick eye for capturing even the most spontaneous of moments, then look no further.
My passion in life is photography. Capturing not only images but taking a single moment in time and creating memories to be treasured for a lifetime.
Providing couples with exquisite images of the most memorable day of their lives, their wedding day, gives me great pleasure and is an absolute honour to capture such beautiful memories of true love and pure joy.
I pride myself on my unobtrusive presence and the ability to blend in with your guests, meaning you can relax without being conscious of a camera in your face, as well as achieving natural shots filled with genuine emotion.
I’m a Norfolk based photographer and have been photographing weddings professionally since 2014. As well as wedding photography, I also specialise in family photography, model & cosplay portfolios, commercial photography, event coverage, maternity, and more, and have had the honour of being published on a number of occasions.
Make sure your business gives off the best first impression with my professional commercial photography!
Over the past 6 years, I’ve had the pleasure of shooting for a number of businesses in the region including East Anglian Air Ambulance, Taverham Vets, and Perfit Fitness to name a few.
As a professional commercial photographer, I can give your visual branding the WOW factor by creating stunning images of your premises, services, and products.
Staff portraits and corporate event photography are also available.
Your family is what makes your house a home, and my family photography allows you to capture some stunning life-long memories of you and your loved ones!
Whether it’s for a special occasion, simply the experience, or perhaps you’re looking to give a gift with a difference,
Planning a wedding can seem daunting and exciting all at the same time, but choosing your wedding photographer doesn’t have to be a stressful experience!!
Your wedding should be one of the most memorable and enjoyable days of your life, so you’ll need a wedding photographer who is unobtrusive, creative, and who has a quick-eye for details to capture even the most spontaneous of shots!!
I’ve been a professional photographer since 2014 and have photographed weddings of all sizes and themes, and have been praised for my “invisible” presence which allows me to capture your pure joy and true love without you realising you’re being photographed.
If you’re a huge Comicon fan or want to add something different to your portfolio, get in touch with me to discuss a cosplay shoot!
Aside from wedding photography, I am a HUGE cosplay fan and absolutely love recreating iconic shots.
I’m always looking for cosplay collaborators and have lots of ideas I’d love to shoot, so if this is right up your street, then contact me!

The environmental benefits of upcycling are mammoth, aside from minimising the volume of discarded materials and waste being sent to landfill each year, it also reduces the need for production using new or raw materials which means a reduction in air pollution, water pollution, greenhouse gas emissions and often a conservation of global resources.
Nothing beats that feeling when you’ve done something great for the planet. Repairing an item and giving it a new life is a great feeling.
Whether you’re upcycling things yourself or buying products from designers, it’s always nice to know that you have something that is completely unique.
A bit about me
I’ve always had an interest in interior design and love sprucing up the rooms in our house. And buying all the little accessories and furniture to go with it!!
I love going to antique fairs and shops, not just to buy, but to get ideas for my next project. A change in circumstances gave me the opportunity to have a go at upcycling my own furniture and bring it back to life.
Before, it was all too easy to sell it, or bin it, because it no longer matched the room or colours. I started with a couple of smaller items, an old coffee table and side table. I was pleased with the results, so I decided to take myself to the auction and plucked up the courage to bid on a couple of bits. And there my new venture began, and I haven’t looked back!
Spruce Up Your Stuff
Mass manufacturing of furniture and the advent of the flatpack means that it’s hard to be different and to stand out without spending a fortune. Upcycling gives you the chance to own a one-of-a-kind piece.
Most of us can’t afford to replace our furniture every time we get bored or want to try something new. Upcycling means that you don’t have to be spending the earth for something new and unique.
When you fancy a change, give me a call. We can discuss what item of furniture you’re looking to breathe new life into, the colours you like and the type of finish you have in mind.

Stripped down and straight-talking creative marketing
Naked is a creative marketing agency who since 2002 has believed that professional quality design and marketing shouldn’t be out of reach for businesses with smaller budgets. Specialising in branding, design and digital marketing, we solve challenges for businesses with creativity and an open and honest, stripped down approach. It’s why we’re called Naked and its why our clients continue to work with us year after year.
Get noticed, get Naked
We're not what you might have come to expect from a creative agency. You won’t find flashy awards, bloated teams, meaningless jargon or fancy offices with a bowl of skittles and a pool table. Naked takes a stripped down, no-nonsense approach that is designed to suit small and medium businesses. We make it our mission to expose the greatness of every business we work with – using creative ideas, inspirational design and intelligent marketing.
A small but perfectly formed team
Our team of ‘nudists’ all come with a positive, can-do attitude, a passion for delivering better and an inbuilt dislike to blinding clients with science. Each with bundles of experience, they are the people that will not only do your work but deal with you directly too.
Marketing theory is pretty pointless unless it can be translated into plans and campaigns that sing. And that’s why you need to get Naked. We understand what will make the difference and how to give you the edge.
Who are you? How do you portray your business to the outside world, or your employees? What’s your look, feel, personality, tone of voice? We’ll take you through the fundamentals and bring ‘you’ to life.
Great design has an impact, it inspires, it lives with you - and it sells. The perception of you and your communication lives or dies by the quality of your design. Don’t get it wrong. We’re here to make sure you get it right.
There’s no such thing as a marketing strategy without digital these days. But we won’t let it be the minefield everyone makes it out to be. Let us strip away the myths and make digital actually work for you.
For a leaner, no-nonsense approach to creative marketing, isn’t it time you got Naked?
If you’ve got a project or challenge in mind, call us on 01953 850211 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a no-obligation chat to find out how we can help.
You’ll find us at 18 Market Place, Hingham, Norfolk NR9 4AF or online at www.nakedmarketing.co.uk

Do you want to attract new customers and stand out from the crowd? If you want to get your business noticed then it is vital to have the right images. Your time and money are valuable, so make sure to invest them in something that will make a difference and make you more profit. With so many claiming to be photographers nowadays it can be hard to know who to trust for the job. Creating a brand isn't easy and it requires all sorts of specialist knowledge along the way. Bad photos are bad for business, so choose someone who understands how to represent your brand visually and the importance of crafting assets that will reap rewards.
Having won numerous international awards for my photography as well as having work published and featured in exhibitions around the world, I know how to make images with impact. We will start out by working out exactly what your images need to achieve for you and the best way of going about that. This initial phase is extremely important to make sure you get the best value for money. It is best to spend time getting the plan right than to have hundreds of useless cheap images that fail to achieve anything. We will then arrange the shoot(s) and image processing to meet any deadlines you may have. All editing work is carried out to the highest industry standards and ensures a polished look that shows your business is all about quality.
My areas of specialism are product photography and architectural photography. I love the challenge of producing dynamic, exciting and creative advertising images. We want people to stop and notice your adverts or posts online, so that is what the images are designed to do. I also offer product photography for simple ecommerce listings and 360 product spins. Architectural photography is quite simply all about showing off buildings. Although I mainly do this for the hospitality industry (hotels, restaurants, etc.), anyone looking to make an impression with interior or exterior images of a property can benefit from this service.
