WE ARE R2 media

What our business OFFERS and who we are.

We stand for AUTHENTIC CONTENT (not stock or AI!), we believe TOP QUALITY PHOTOS and FILMS are everything, and we’re here to make your brand come…

ALIVE

OUR MANIFESTO

We believe your clients love AUTHENTIC STORIES and visual content such as photos and films helps businesses tell those stories. That’s why stock photos and AI just don’t work.

That’s why we are passionate about creating REAL and TOP QUALITY visual content that tells brand stories beautifully and keeps the audience hooked.

By creating MARKETING PLANS for our clients we make sure they CONSISTENTLY stand out from the crowd.


MEET THE

TEAM

We’re Artur & Marta and we’re pleased to meet you. We’re your dream team!

Working with two people who know each other inside out (did we mentioned that we’re a husband and wife duo?), will guarantee you a seamless experience and a collection of really nuanced, bold and artistic visual content that tells the story of your brand.

We started our professional photography journey back in 2012 as Marta May Photography and have been named THE BEST PHOTOGRAPHERS in the country, which we’re really proud as it proves that we’re really good at what we do.

MARTA

  • marketing plan/social media
  • client experience reviews

Multi-lingual Marta loves freedom and hiking in the mountains. So much goes into photography, but for Marta it’s the early stages of the process and the chance for a cuppa and a good old chat to get to know you and your business that really make her tick.

She’s got a real ability to capture joy and REAL stories on her camera.

WHERE IT ALL STARTED

THE ORIGIN STORY

It all pretty much started with our wedding! We were rather unaware of the power of photography until we saw our professional pictures and just couldn’t believe something so pretty could be produced – and we actually LOOKED GOOD in those pictures!

Se started learning all about cameras, then got into wedding photography, then 11 years later we were named THE BEST PHOTOGRAPHERS in the country by TWIA!

THE MOMENT THAT CHANGED EVERYTHING

year 2020

And then 2020 happened and we were not allowed to shoot weddings. This is also when we had our first bigger jobs as COMMERCIAL and BRANDING photographers and we discovered that we can apply the same personal approach, the same story telling skills to businesses too.

The thing is – every human being LOVES STORIES – and for this reason brands, in order to get their clients’ attention, should be telling stories. Visual content (your brand photos, films, reels, tiktoks, youtube shorts) is just the thing that HELPS your brand story because it keeps your clients hooked.

But it has to be real! Nobody likes fake stories, right? For this reason AI generated images or stock photos just won’t work – AUTHENTIC content will ALWAYS beat them!
