Hi, we are Mark and Hedi, the team behind FountainFotos. We specialise in sports, weddings, food and product, videography and photography as well as family and lifestyle photoshoots. We are based in Essex, but work throughout UK and abroad. We don’t just create films and take photos, we love spending time with our clients to listen to their story and what is important to them, and then tell their story in our films and images.

About Us

Hello

We are so excited that you stopped by! We are Mark and Hedi, both equally passionate about creating videos and taking photos. We originally met over a cup of coffee in McDonalds a couple of years ago and have been photographing together since. Having two of us shooting your events or special occasions means that you get comprehensive coverage from different angles and perspectives. It also means that you will get coverage that you simply cannot get with a single photographer.

Mark is a born and bred Essex boy who loves capturing all sports events including triathlons, boxing, cycling and swimming, but also creating beautiful cinematic wedding trailers and commercial product photography (especially an expensive watch!). He has over ten years of experience, is obsessed with cameras and lenses and loves creating documentaries about people. He is dad to two amazing kids.

Hedi, originally from Czech Republic, has started her photography journey with her blog www.hedihearts.com where she shares her love for good food that is good for your body and soul. She loves food and wedding videos & photos, as well family portraits and lifestyle photoshoots. She is probably the more organised member of the FountainFotos team. If you don’t find her in the kitchen cooking up a storm, she might be hitting the pavements or spending time with her two kids.

Fountainfotos are available to film and photograph sports events, commercial products, food and recipes, small business stories, parties, portraits, events and other commissions. We regularly shoot and create social media content to boost awareness and engagement for brands and companies. We have also shot fun videos for hotels and have been commissioned to shoot for charities.

Our Portfolios

There isn’t one word to describe all the amazing things we cover. From sport events and weddings, to food films and product photography,  We simply love our job. Have a look through our portfolios and browse our website.

Sport

 

Sport and athletes are all about an incredible effort, emotions and pushing themselves to the limit. We love documenting those moments and producing films and images using different angles, lighting and playing with colours. Everyone has their own story to tell and why they are striving for the gold and we want to get this across in our films. Sport events, in particular, are our favourite because of the emotion levels and an incredible atmosphere.

 

Weddings

 

We love creating wedding films and wedding photography. We just love beautiful wedding settings, quirky wedding venues, creative wedding films, natural wedding photos and gorgeous outdoor settings.   We believe in a candid and friendly approach, to capture your wedding, that is fun, easy-going but most of all full of laughter and life!

 

Product

 

Using our well-equipped studio, we can provide outstanding product photos at reasonable rates. We can also come to you. Visit our product photography gallery to see what we can do. Service includes cut-outs and packshots, headshots, business portraiture, interior photography, lifestyle and creative studio photography as well as image manipulation and product videography.

 

Food

 

We love to eat, and share the passion for food. Hedi has a hugely popular blog and Facebook page where she shares simple recipes and ideas. We have created loads of short food videos and worked with some amazing brands including Waitrose, Wayfair, Holland & Barrett. You can check some of our work – but be warned you might get hungry!

We love family portraits taken either in the comfort of your home or in our well-equipped studio. Beautiful pregnancy photography,  special newborn, baby or family pictures as well as lifestyle photography . Natural, candid and meaningful photos to create the most beautiful and timeless gift of memories.

The best thing about being film makers and photographers is that no day is ever the same. We could be on a beach in the Canaries filming one week, then on the rooftops of London doing a promotional film for an air conditioning company the next!

Weddings

I first met Mark at a friends wedding, he was instantly so easy to get on with and we spoke  like we had be friends for years. This is where we first experienced his skills. When it came to our own wedding we originally only booked Fountainfotos for the photo booth during the evening, however the more we thought about it, we decided to use him for our wedding video too.

 

Sporting Events

Mark instinctively gets what we are trying to do as a business and is able to capture that through his photography and filmwork. We’ve used Mark for our social media campaigns, our website and to support our recent successful crowdfunding campaign.

….I’ve had the privilege over the past few years to work with Mark on several photographic and video productions in the Canary Islands. He is extremely talented and professional, going about his job with minimal fuss.

We’ve been working with Mark for many years now. He takes care of all our photography and videography for our company, he is always coming up with new ideas and is very easy to work with. We constantly get compliments on the material Mark creates & I truly believe its taken our brand awareness to the next level – so thanks Mark!
