About Copper Boom Studio
We're a creative content studio, specialising in photography, copywriting and support for makers and creative entrepreneurs. Working with creatives from one-woman-bands to multi-million pound wholesalers, we give care and attention to every piece of work we do.
A one-stop shop for your online content
Our founder, Jenny Hyde, has been working with small businesses for 10 years, and just kept being asked: "Do you know anyone who can help me with photography, written content, and uploading stuff to my shop?"
After spending years doing bits of it herself, Jenny decided it was time to create somewhere creatives could come for expert content at an affordable rate. We offer solutions for the maker who just needs one photo and one product description really quickly, or the creative entrepreneur who wants to outsource their photography and copywriting so they don't have to employ someone themselves.
Our aim is to make your life easier so that you can work on the things that only you can do. We mostly do that through professional photography, copywriting and content services, but we also take requests! You can always get in touch to let us know what you're struggling with.
Our talented team: Holly, business manager
Since launching in Jenny's home in 2016, we've grown quickly! We now have a core team of three: founder and director Jenny, business manager Holly, and studio manager Millie.
Holly is Jenny's sister and even though Jenny might think she's the boss, Holly is the Real Boss. She knows what's going on, briefs our creative team, and makes sure our clients get everything they need. Holly loves working with clients on their photography briefs and getting the details right, and often turns her hand to writing product descriptions.
With a background in web design and development, Holly is a great resource for web-friendly writing and has a working knowledge of how important content is for websites and online shops.
You can usually find Holly having desk dance parties or swooning over her favourite furry creatures: dogs.
Millie, studio manager
Organised, creative and friendly, Millie keeps things going at The Barn. She organises products and props for our shoots, and is our in-house editor when we need to check and tweak our latest photography.
Millie's often re-painting a wall, discovering new props to add to our collection, or creating new graphics and documents for us or a client. She's a talented graphic designer as well as being awesome at turning her hand to the varied demands of a creative studio!
She takes care of our freelancers when they're in the studio, and makes sure our clients know that their products have arrived safely.
You can usually find Millie making tea (several times a day) and listening to an "eclectic" range of music (love you, Millie!).
Photographers, stylists, copywriters and more
We love working with talented creatives, including Cat, our lead photographer, Bethan, our lead stylist, Lizzie, our talented copywriter, and Emily, a wonderful visual merchandiser.
Our team ebbs and flows to meet demand, and we love it most when the studio is full of chat, music and creativity! Most of our creatives are based near our Barn in Swaffham Bulbeck, Cambridge, and we're always on the look out for other creatives to work with us.
Get time back to create, make and shake things up in your business!
The purpose of Copper Boom is to provide professional services that are easy to book, reliable, and on brief. Our knowledge of online selling and our efficient processes mean that you can tick so much off your list by booking us.
And you'll always be able to try us out by booking just one product.
Gilmore Girls: inspiration or obsession?
If you're in the club, you'll already know that "Copper Boom" is a line from Gilmore Girls. (If you haven't watched it, you probably should.)
Jenny and Holly adore Gilmore Girls, and watched it together as teenagers. When coming up with the idea for the studio, Copper Boom seemed like the obvious choice - not only does it sound cool, it's a reference that means "let's get on with it and do it well". A no-brainer!
Because the characters in Gilmore Girls are cool and pretty creative themselves, we're inspired by the show. We're also a little giddy about pop culture references, so that's fun for us.
As a little side project, we have our own Etsy shop featuring our Gilmore Girls-inspired pins.
