ABOUT US

MOTT_VISUALS 2-0_Icons.jpg

There are few more effective communication tools than the art of storytelling. A good story can hold its audience captive. It has the potential to delight, inspire and inform.

At Mott Visuals, we know the value of compelling narrative. It is at the very heart of our philosophy and it is what has earned us the trust of high profile clients, including Fortune 500 companies, as a facilitator for every visual need.

Founded by Justin Mott – one of the most celebrated photographers in Asia – we’ve come a long way since starting out in 2009. Back then the company was run from a tiny café in Hanoi. Now our boutique visual production studio has offices in Bangkok, Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City and services companies and commercial clients around Asia and beyond.

Since those early years, we have produced commercial photography, video and social content for clients including Nike, Microsoft, IHG, Reebok, Unilever, and Hyatt, to name just a few. Our ability to switch naturally between film and photography gives us a fluidity that adds extra depth and nuance to any visual campaign.

Although we have grown, core storytelling values remain integral to our work. Our global team has experience shooting for some of the world’s biggest and most prestigious publications and media outlets such as New York Times, CNN, Discovery Channel and BBC. We apply our editorial pedigree to the commercial market, resulting in believable, natural and iconic images and film that sells visions and showcases values.

Most of all though we tell compelling stories: let us tell yours.
