About UsWe have over 8 years experience in the media industry
Smallfry Productions have been supplying camera operating services in Birmingham and around the UK.
The business initially started out as a hobby providing free photography under the name “Gemma’s Photography”, however we renamed the business to “Smallfry Productions” when we added a number of other services to our team’s skillset.
‘Smallfry’ was a childhood nickname that I was given by my parents as I was the smallest in the family.
‘Productions’ was added to the name to include all the other aspects of the services we provide, including videography, print and graphic design.

How did it all start?
Gemma officially set up Smallfry Productions following an unfortunate skiing accident which led to her breaking her back. During her recovery she decided that working for herself was the best way she could recover and work at the same time. After around 6 months of being house bound and another 6 in physiotherapy she started to push the video side of the business which is where she would like to specialise in the future with plans to work on feature films later in life. During her recovery she was only able to provide photography services as she wasn’t able to stand or sit for long durations without it causing her a lot of pain. Although she still suffers with back pain now, it’s much better than it used to be and as such she’s able to work longer hours.
Gemma prides herself in how far she has brought the business after having such a bad injury, alongside that she has suffered with mental illnesses for some time now but she continues to push the business to great heights.
Between 2018 and 2019 Smallfry Productions provided camera trainees on; a low-budget feature film as well as The Gadget Show Christmas Special, runners on; a Bentley commercial, BBC One’s The Greatest Dancer. As well as the above Smallfry Productions have provided photographers and videographers for various clients.
