WHAT OUR PHOTOGRAPHERS SAY

FocalAgent work fits in with my lifestyle, I’ve been freelance for 30 years and it’s a great way to fill in the gaps or if you want to build a career out of it. There is lots of flexibility and no pressure. You can take what jobs you want to do and you don’t get penalised if you don’t take a job.

Working with focal is just amazing! The opportunity to pretty much be your own boss while doing something I love is just a dream really. Creating beautiful content and visiting amazing places while meeting interesting people. Us photographers we get to do what we love day in day out while knowing that there’s a whole team behind us for anything we might need! And the flexibility is great too! I have 2 little boys (a 3 year old and a 5 year old) so being able to organise my day around my family or other commitments is also great! Ive been with focal since December 2018 and honestly its getting better and better every day. Its fantastic to see focal grow and I feel privileged that I grow with focal too! I would describe focal agent as the leading property marketing agency in the uk by far!

I absolutely love the work I do day in, day out with Focal. I love photographing people’s homes knowing that I’m making a difference. Focal also offer flexibility which is great because I can choose when to work. Focal have given me the opportunity to streamline my business and also remove the stresses involved in finding private work. It’s also highly rewarding to see great feedback which they send regularly, and they also have a really fantastic team to communicate with internally.
Jonathan Foster
As a photographer it is never easy to manage your workflow, however working for Focal changes all that. Since the new management under Lee Wainwright, Focal have gone from strength to strength enabling many more photographers to enjoy the benefits of regular work with a great team who support them and are always looking to develop their income. My personal experience with them has allowed me to develop a business, so that I now have a team of 5, allowing me to help other photographers. Lee and his team are always very supportive and work very hard to make the systems better, easier to use and quicker so that we can all win more customers. Yes, I would recommend Focal to other photographers and often do.
Jonathan Hilder Piers Photography
I have worked with FocalAgent for a couple of years in South East London. Photography has always been my passion and FocalAgent has allowed me to create a business from my passion. It works very well for me as I can manage my own diary and choose when I work, allowing me to be there for my 2 daughters when they are not at school. I love visiting different properties – some for sale and some for rent – and it’s great to see customer feedback when they see the final product.
Matheus Santos Azevedo Photography
I’ve worked with FocalAgent since 2013, and I’ve always enjoyed the flexibility it brought to my work-life balance while allowing me to leave my pervious job and significantly increase my income doing the work I love. When we went into lockdown Focal was a saving grace for me – they made it their top priority to keep the work coming through at a time when other freelance work was drying up, and as a result I’ve been able to continue with my passion. Always innovating, Focal continue to improve their processes to make our lives easier and allow us to focus on what we love doing.
