November Monthly Overview

There’s always so much going on here at ‘AV IT that we thought we’d start sharing a monthly overview of the major events we have covered. With such a diverse client list, we pride ourselves in the work we do, so we thought we’d give you a little taster of what we’ve been up to this month.

Rays Of Sunshine Winter Gala 2018

The month was kick-started by the Rays Of Sunshine Winter Gala on the 8th of November. Rays Of Sunshine are a registered charity that grants wishes to children portable of serious or life-threatening diseases. Their vision is to make wishes come true and turn them into happy memories*. To know more about the charity, check out their website.

The evening was full with joy, laughter and great music. Hosted by none other than Vernon Kay, and carried out with performances from Jack Pack, Olly Murs and the Rays of Sunshine Children’s choir, our team of (amazing) photographers and Directors, Mark Averill and Ash Stanley, sought out to capture the very essence of the night.

Derby County Football Club

If you’re a DCFC fan then you’ve definitely seen our new digital boards at the home games. Our commercial partnership with Derby County was a great achievement, and we are ecstatic to be able to take photos of their games, training kit, and Pride Park Stadium. Take a look at some of the photos from their last home game below, along with the new training kit for 2018/19. We are very much looking forward to working with Derby County moving forward in the the New Year!

University of Derby Media Production Students

We also had the immense pleasure of speaking to the University of Derby Film and Media Production students. Blown away by the raw talent and passion most of the students displayed, we thought to combine our necessity for a videographer with their necessity for experience. So we hosted interviews with some of the students that approached us after the talk.

We suddenly found ourselves in a room with a group of young experts, each with different strengths and backgrounds. Even though they all studied the same subject, they all showcased unique skill sets, which made it all the harder for us to decide who would best fit our company.

After careful consideration, we decided to take on two new additions to the ‘AV IT Team, and we’ll be welcoming them on our web platforms soon, but for now we’d just like to thank the University of Derby for asking us to do this talk. It has made us remember how much our younger generation should be invested in.

Listers Group

Who doesn’t love a stylish car shot? We know we take the best ones. Our biggest clients, Listers SEAT - Coventry, have statistical proof that our photos have increased the amount of leads per click on their cars since March 2018. Funnily enough, that’s exactly when they started using our photos. Coincidence? We think not. Automotive photography is our expertise, just take a look at some of the photos below and you’ll understand what we’re talking about. We are looking to grow our Automotive portfolio in the New Year, and believe we can help reach new heights with this, with our new partnership with WDA Automotive, the experts in Automotive Marketing.

BMW 8 Series Launch


That’s not all when it comes to cars. The ‘AV IT team had the pleasure of covering the new BMW 8 series release at Stratstone BMW Derby. What a way to end the month! If you’re car obsessed like we are, you’ve most likely been patiently waiting for the launch of the new BMW. In the gallery below you will find a few photos of the newly unveiled car. What an honour this was.

Fitness Shoots


We had a great time photographing the professional center midfield footballer and entrepreneur Curtis J Weston, Personal Trainer and Nutritional Adviser Tobias Wayland, and Herbalife representative Dean Owen. Check out their Instagram accounts linked for more.

Mr Shaw

The Mr Shaw and Silver Birch Creative  team is considered ‘AV IT family. If you follow us on Instagram you have definitely seen them being featured. Their brand is based on old-fashioned values, in a modern diverse world. “Influence others, and Pride in what you do”, that’s the Mr Shaw way. Featured in the header is Shane Nicholson, professional footballer from back in the day. Shane, aka Shinner, is an example citizen, and this is why Mr Shaw chose to dedicate the Influence S Tee to him. He carries all the values of the Mr Shaw man. All of these photos were taken on location, but can you guess where...
