Who Is Night Owl Studio?

Okay so, yes we are photographers. Yes we are designers. Yes we are videographers. But who actually is behind Night Owl Studio?

We’ve been thinking that it’s probably about time we share a little bit more about who we are, how our business has come to be and why we’re so passionate about what we do! It feels like the right time to share the faces, brains and inspirations behind the business and we thought we’d take a little time to truly bare all and give you an insight into the world of Night Owl.

We thought we should maybe start with the name;

Night Owl Studio.

People often ask, “Okay.. so I get the studio part.. But what’s with the Night Owl part?”. Well ladies and gentlemen, here at Night Owl Studio, you’re dealing with two brimming minds that very rarely shut off! We often find ourselves creating our best work when the rest of the world sleeps. You may find us answering an email in the small hours of the morning. It wouldn't be unusual for inspiration to strike at 4am! We’re two Night Owls that create magic under the veil of darkness and that is what inspired our name.

As for the beginnings of the business, it all began with Francine. As an avid photography and film fanatic, creating visual art has always been a passion that was smouldering away quietly in the background. However, once Francine started creating and shooting in 2018, as a mere side project, the passion snowballed into a portfolio of work that warranted a full business. Francine has a BA in Media Studies and Production as well as a HND in Creative Media. But her impressive education doesn’t end there! Here at Night Owl, we value self improvement and are always striving to know more, learn more and achieve more, so that we can better serve our clients. Francine has gone on to receive qualifications in Social Media and Digital Marketing.

Aside from all those lovely qualifications, Francine is also a PASSIONATE Disney fan, and it wouldn’t be unusual to find her binge-watching some great Disney classics. (I mean, can we really blame her? Where would we be without Woody, Buzz and all the gang?) As well as this, she is continuously inspired by travel and in particular, the beauty and tranquility of the North Coast.

Here at Night Owl Studio, we are continuously inspired by the world around us, the creative art that has come before us and how we can use our personal interests to inform our work. Francine and her work is a great example of this.

It wasn’t until 2020 that the Night Owl team expanded, and we welcomed Tiarnan to the mix.

Tiarnan trying to act professional

Tiarnan not only shares Francine's passion, vision and creativity, but also has a background in video and graphic design. With his fresh perspective, attention to detail and big ambition, Night Owl Studio went from strength to strength. Much like Francine, Tiarnan is motivated by creating revolutionary, cutting edge, customer focused work. Because of this, he is constantly searching for ways to expand on his knowledge, and is currently studying a BA in Communications, Advertising and Marketing. Adding another valuable string to the Night Owl bow!

We really meant it when we said everyone at Night Owl doesn’t have a switch off time. Tiarnan’s idea of relaxing involves gaming, reading up on history or indulging in some digital art to inspire his next piece of work. (It may sound exhausting to many, but not for this Night Owl!).
