Greystone Financial Services…

The client…

Greystone Financial Services is an integrated wealth management group offering financial planning and in-house fund management. The Chartered firm is based locally in Altrincham and advises individuals, corporate and professional clients alike.

After 26 years Greystone has a stunning reputation within the industry and their consultants are extremely proud of the fact that the majority of their clients come via personal recommendation.

In 2014, the firm appointed Sally-Anne Rogers from BRAND – a consultancy that advises on reputation management and digital PR and marketing strategies – to help the firm progress digitally and to identify their unique selling point (USP). From this emerged the idea for their new website and the origin of their latest campaign “Our clients are at the heart of everything we do”.

The Brief…

My photographic brief was to capture the personalities of a number of Greystone’s clients to accompany their stories on the website. The images needed to reflect the diversity of the people who put their complete trust in the firm to manage their finances.

Jannette and Russell Harris
Russell is perhaps best known for his award winning renovation of this once derelict Grade II listed water tower, and its conversion into a luxurious contemporary family home.

Allen Plumbley
By 2008, Allen had created Swanlow Park Cemetery in Winsford with a traditional graveyard along with a woodland area and was offering people an alternative to the traditional burial or cremation.

Martin Dempsey
In 2005, aged 26, Martin was involved in a road traffic accident. As a passenger in a friend’s car, he sustained horrific head and internal injuries, breaking nearly every bone on the left side of his body. A huge science fiction fan, here he is ‘time travelling’ in his steam punk outfit!

Laurence Isaacson is a renowned restauranteur, entrepreneur and philanthropist and was awarded a CBE for services to the restaurant industry and tourism in 1998

As a professional photographer, this was a really a fun project to be involved with. Shot over several months, it had us zipping around the country with venues ranging from a famous London restaurant and a renowned brewery, to an amazing piece of architecture and a cemetery.

The mother and daughters team behind Qualicut Engineering have been successfully running the business since husband and father Ron died 10 years ago and are proud to have been voted best performing supplier of the year in 2015.

Working closely with Sally-Anne was a real treat; she put together the campaign directly with Greystone and therefore knew exactly the overall look and feel she wanted to achieve, directing on each session. This reduced second guessing…and overshooting on the day!
