It all began around 2002 in downtown Notting Hill Gate with a little company called Red Snappers. Originally a tech come photo marketing agency, our creative and digital DNA helped us grow and adapt to the seismic changes in the content arena. Since then we have grown in many ways while our work ethos and core purpose has always remained the same: to tell the right story.
Wonderhatch creates inspiring content that works.
We focus on producing the very best photography, video & film for our clients across Rights Holders and Consumer Luxury Brands, Professional Services, Hospitality, Property and the Automotive Industry.
We bring years of specialist experience to bear, previously operating under the guise of Red Photographic Ltd on the photography side and New Art Productions on the film.
