Our story so far...

With a BA (Hons) in photography and over 5 years professional experience, creative entrepreneur Sophie Skipper made the exciting leap to start her own business and founded Skip50 in February 2016.

With the mission to inspire businesses to celebrate their journey through regular and consistently AWESOME visual content, our mighty team of 6 offers client’s expertise in photography, videography, retouching, marketing and production. We will work with you on your creative strategy and handle the logistics, development and post-production in-house.

It’s been an exciting journey. Like with any growing business, there’s ups and downs, learning curves and obstacles to overcome, but the Skip50 team have seen year on year growth and we are thrilled to have had the opportunity to work with so many wonderful brands and teams. A big ‘cheers’ to our partners in content!

Sophie

Company Director & Photographer

Photography has been a part of Sophie’s life since she was a child. After gaining her BA (Hons) in Documentary Photography at the University of South Wales, Sophie worked across a number of photography roles in London and Essex, including a rather graphic stint as a Medical Photographer at Basildon Hospital! Despite gathering some great experience, these roles weren’t quite ticking all of the boxes. Sophie knew she wanted to aim high and create something a little bit different, so started her business in February 2016 offering an alternative approach to commercial photography for businesses!

Laura

Sales & Marketing Manager

Skip50’s wonderful Marketing & Design expert. Laura has a degree in Graphic Design from the University of Lincoln alongside qualifications in marketing, communications & digital. Meticulous organisation, but with a creative flare. Laura is Skip50’s Sales & Marketing Manager and is working with Sophie and the rest of the team to take the business to the next level!

Clare

Studio Manager

It’s our Clare! If you’ve been chatting to us recently, it’s VERY likely that you’ll have had some chit chats with Clare. Our wonderful Studio Manager and one of Skip50’s shining personalities, Clare has been described by some as ‘bold and direct’… but we LOVE her for it! With a degree in Media and Journalism, Clare has had her fingers in many pies… from marketing professional to a successful mortgage advisor, she brings with her a tonne of skills and experience, helping her tackle any challenge and act as a great support for both our team and our wonderful customers.

Jenny

Photographer & Creative Lead

With a background spanning across photography, fashion and communications, Jen is a lady with many talents! Her previous roles include an Account Executive within a communications agency where she worked on producing campaigns for a variety of brands before embracing her love for photography. With a particular skillset in still-life/product photography, Jen went on to work as a freelance photographer, digital operator and photography assistant prior to joining the Skip50 team!
