We are

Firesoul Media

We are creative people who get excited about using photography, moving image, audio and words to tell your story. We have worked with individuals, families, communities and organisations around the world to create customised audio-visual projects across a range of genres with firesoul passion and expertise. We also offer training programmes, location services and equipment hire in the UK and Cuba. Have a look through our pages to find out more, and if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.



Our Story

Our story begins when two people with a contagious enthusiasm for life and a passion for film and photography met at a concert in Waterloo. Rebecca, who having recently returned to London from studying at the International Film School in Cuba noticed Elio capturing the event. From afar, she admired the ease with which he could transform from being a fly on the wall to the centre of attention in order to get the shots he desired for his client and decided to introduce herself. And so, Firesoul Media was ignited. Since that day we have worked on multimedia and educational training projects together around the world. We have bases in London and Havana and love to travel with work.

Our Style

At Firesoul Media, we embrace diversity, originality and creativity. We are multi-disciplinary, comfortable working across a range of genres and whilst our work is often described as, fresh, contemporary, colourful and energetic, we are not bound to one particular style. With solid foundations in the theory of art, a commitment to continued training, a keen understanding of current industry trends and practices, audio-visual inspiration from around the world and a genuine passion for producing images that effectively speak to their audiences, we believe that working closely with our clients to develop a collaborative vision for each project is key. Want brightly lit, airy product shots? You got it! Need some dark, moody character shots for your profile? We can do that!

Working With You

At Firesoul Media, we ‘make’ as opposed to ‘take’ photographs and images. Making images involves detailed conversation around what you really want to see as a final product and helping you to achieve that with our technical expertise and creativity. We enjoy the essential planning and ideas development stage just as much as our shoots, so get in touch for a free, no commitment chat about your project and find out how we can make it work for you.
