About Us

Simply put, Shoemakers Elves London is one of the world’s leading bespoke print post production houses. Established in the late 1990’s we have become experts in the field of fashion, beauty and still life retouching and continue to deliver the highest quality of work across all genres of the industry.

Our client base is extensive, working directly with photographers, ad and production agencies, magazines and retailers. This diverse cross section allows us to be intuitive re. the images we work on and ensures that we can cater for all levels of work needed.

While we hold traditional values to imagery, believing it starts with lighting and the quality of photography, we keep abreast of new technological advancements so we can ably assist even the most modern of digital client. Having said this, we are one of the only post production houses that offer a full film and print scanning service; ensuring those clients that still use film are equally provided for.

We pride ourselves on our ability to assist our clients in any way required and will 
be as actively involved as they would like us to be, offering both technical and creative support both pre, during and post shoots.

Our company philosophy is simple: we are here to help, not hinder.
