Photographers Iggy Jimenez, Simon Withyman and the team at Epic Photography are planning their appearance at this year’s Bristol Balloon festival taking their Marler Haley outdoor exhibition stands for a full impact event environment.

The Bristol based 'portrait experience' company was taken over by Ignacio (Iggy for short) and his business partner Simon Withyman in the summer of 2008. Since then the business has flourished and continues to provide vibrant personal reflections of their customers combined with truly beautiful photography.

Along with a state-of-the-art studio, the Epic photographers take their skills out to location capturing weddings, school events and family portraits. Epic use their outdoor display stand from Marler Haley to create a high-impact presence when out on location, spreading brand awareness and creating intrigue for the work they do.

Keeping things local, Epic attend a number of events in and around Bristol. This year sees Epic attend The Harbour Side Festival and Nature Festival in the summer as well as the world famous Bristol Balloon Fiesta in August. Wishful thinking and predicted good weather will see a large turn out to these events. "The outdoor environment always attracts a good number of visitors and the fine weather puts them in a great mood for photos", says Simon.

Simon found Marler Haley through the Internet and quickly discovered that Outdoor Displays can be portable and affordable. "For a small enterprise the Marler Haley range is great for us to be able to have a durable yet portable outdoor display. Some of the other outdoor brands we'd looked at were more permanent and well out of our price range."

Epic are also looking forward to taking their displays to indoor events this year stating "The organisers always give us a good space which allows us to take our big impact displays there too," adds Simon.
Andrew Pocock, Sales Director at Marler Haley concludes, "Epic are a pleasure to work with, they know what they want from their outdoor displays and have high impact graphics that really work on a large scale. We're very much looking forward to seeing Iggy and Simon's business grow in leaps and bounds!"

The company became aware of the universal need for simple systems which could be constructed and dismantled easily. A period of growth and development saw the introduction of new products setting the pace for for Marler Haley's success in the portable display market.
