First of all, we'd like to welcome you to our new website!
For those of you who don't know us yet...
Our studio is located in the heart of Liverpool's Creative Quarter, the Baltic Triangle. You will find us at 3 Brick Street, Liverpool, L1 0BL. When not in the field, we spend most of our time here, making ready all of the art work to offer to you for your enjoyment. We've been in business since 2007, and have been based here since early 2012, when our home was no longer able to accommodate our ever-expanding range of materials, finished products, equipment and visitors.

And a bit more about the brains and creative forces behind POTO Studios...
Please note: the following brief passage has NOT been written by Charlie and Alina (they're way too humble!), but by someone who has known and worked with the guys for many years, and witnessed their blood, sweat and tears, driven by the passion and desire they each possess to make this succeed. The latest milestone in the project being the launch of this website to give them the ability to offer a greater choice of products and reach a wider audience.
POTO Studios is the brainchild and master of Charlie and Alina Tait.
Charlie is a local, and has lived in the Liverpool area for most of his life. He has many years of experience working for large international corporations in technology and senior management positions. A few years ago Charlie was gifted the opportunity to pursue his dream (he was made redundant...(!)), and took the plunge, and dived head-first off the corporate ladder and into the photography business. This was to allow him to explore his long standing passion for photography, and especially in creating images of the rich heritage available in his hometown.
Alina, Charlie's wife and professional photographer, was operating on an individual basis, and continuing to build her extensive portfolio. As Charlie doesn't do things by halves, he decided to dedicate himself to growing the business on a full-time (and lots of overtime!) basis. Both Charlie and Alina remain committed to the original values of the business, in that quality, character, personal service and affordability remains inherent to everything they offer to their customers.
The couple are proud to be a part of the Baltic Triangle creative community, often referred to as Liverpool's "cultural quarter". Both of them love working among the buzz and diversity of other local creative enterprises working in the community, and nurturing creativity in Liverpool.
Charlie and Alina also run the Art Mayka business, providing professional services for artists including digitising, printing, print media, mounting & framing, and packing & labeling.
