PETase Enzyme Discovery Video
'Stefan and Sara represent the gold standard of photography and media for any project where passion, creativity and detail really matter. As a scientist, I am naturally evidence and data driven and the numbers here are truly spectacular. Photography, video and 3D laboratory walkthroughs on our research into plastic eating enzymes has brought our work to the attention of a global audience. Our first UPIX video on our enzyme discovery work reached over 200 million people within weeks, with footage used by top international TV organisations including BBC, Al Jazeera, Bloomberg and CNN. Engaging and accessible stories are produced through beautiful composition, startling lighting and carefully considered flow, but their talents excel with their appreciation of very personal narratives. I feel very fortunate to work with Stefan and Sara and would highly recommend them.'
Prof. John McGeehan - Director, Centre for Enzyme Innovation (CEI), Institute of Biological and Biomedical Sciences, University of Portsmouth
Every experience with the Upix Team has been so positive and good fun! My multi-award winning clinic regularly uses Upix to maximise on our visual communication with our patients and the public at large. Ultimately, I want to get the highest quality digital images and video to use for education/marketing etc. That aim is realised every time. However, there is so much more to it than having someone with a good eye. Stefan really goes out of his way to prepare for the shoot and aims to get an emotional connection with my intended message. At the start, it was also about him connecting with me as a person and what it is that drives me in my work and why I do what I do. This enabled him to work his creative and artistic side to the max. He is highly pro-active and will throw in lots of ideas and challenge my own thoughts which is what I want from the expert. Stefan and Sara make a great team too. They work almost without needing words and Sara is all about the finer detail! She also has great editing skills and was generous in giving her time during the 1st COVID-19 lockdown to edit public information videos that I created during the height of public fear. These received so many positive comments online and many thousands of views. Look no further; book Upix!
"What a fantastic finale to the three days celebrating the 175th anniversary of Cunard!...
A huge thank you to everyone - you have all gone the extra mile - and more - and the way such a tight team has pulled together to achieve more than we might ever have dared to hope has been extraordinary.
It's a fantastic result. Thank you again. Together, we smashed it!"

Mayville High School Virtual Tour
"Stefan worked with us on capturing and creating the virtual tour for our website. I had previously been approached by lots of companies but felt that their identikit approach was not a good fit for us. We held off commissioning the project until we could find the right partner. From our first conversation, Stefan immediately showed an intuitive understanding of our specific needs. He listened and asked questions, where relevant, to fill in any gaps. He worked collaboratively with us throughout the project, with no ego, to realise our creative vision, adding value at every stage. Drawing on Stefan’s vast commercial experience, we were able to solve problems, creatively, as they arose. A level of mutual trust enabled us to take calculated risks and successfully pioneer new techniques, to deliver an outcome that has surpassed the project’s original scope and objectives.
Stefan and Upix are valued creative partners and I look forward to working together again in the future."
