Antea Photography is a South Wales based photography business with a primary focus on property, both commercial and residential. Working to the strapline “photography from a unique perspective” the business utilises a wide range of resources to capture properties at their best – from ground, pole, mast, drone and aerial viewpoints.
2019 has been a year of further expansion and diversification for Antea. It started with owner and chief photographer, Anthony Barber, obtaining his certificates for rooftop safety and access. This has enabled him to carry out line-of-sight photography work for the telecoms industry across the UK, including at home in Cardiff.
In 2018 Antea Photography initially began working with Invest in Cardiff in support of the City’s attendance at MIPIM in March 2019. The level of involvement and support has grown further this year with Antea now fully partnering with the City as the ‘Official Photographer’ for Cardiff at MIPIM 2020. As well as the opportunity to photograph our wonderful city from all conceivable angles (including from a helicopter!), Anthony has welcomed the far reaching networking opportunities this work has brought and the connections he has developed within the Cardiff property sector.
Although Antea serves a client base across the UK, there has been a focus in 2019 on attracting more activity in South Wales. As well as the ongoing work with companies such as Hansteen, Alder King and Hale Homes, new Cardiff based clients that have come on board this year include Kier Living and Knight Frank.
In May, Antea Photography was named as “Best Commercial Property Photographer – South Wales” in the 2019 Business Excellence Awards. This was followed in November by the business being recognised in the Cardiff Property Awards as a winner in the “Suppliers & Services” category; it really has been a year of high recognition for Antea!
With 2019 being the 8th consecutive year of growth for the business, Antea is looking forward to 2020 with enthusiasm and positive anticipation.
