From Manchester to Mumbai

Successful businesses operate globally. Talent can be found worldwide, and it makes clear business sense to operate in multiple locations; whether it’s to delegate work more effectively, or meet client needs more successfully.

Ten years ago, we took a step into the unknown, and ventured into mysterious Mumbai to create a home shopping catalogue for the Indian market, direct from a Bollywood studio. We fused our own talent from the UK with a carefully crafted Indian team and took it from the there.

The rest, as they say, is history.

Fast forward to 2015 and we’re still working alongside our amazing team in Mumbai, boasting several stunning photographic studios and a highly talented creative team right in the heart of the bustling city.

Lots of companies can be left scratching their heads, wondering how their team can work together successfully whilst operating in multiple time zones.

We’ve got the answer.

It all boils down to two main factors: flexibility and communication. The Photolink India team operates on two different shifts, covering a working day in the UK, give-or-take a bit of leeway. This approach means that we can really deliver to our clients, and implement all of their wants and needs.

As for communication? Well, let’s just say technology sure is a wonderful thing.

180 people, 6 companies, 3 cities, countless creative solutions. Because when we say global, we really mean it.
