we work with some of the best...'s what they say about us...

“Jamie, Natasha and the gang at Picture Canning have done us proud on our recent 32 week shoot. Always on the end of the phone / email, and nothing is too much to ask. Great feedback from our camera teams who remarked on how pleasant Picture Canning are to deal with and also the quality of the kit. We wouldn’t hesitate to use Picture Canning again.”

“After completing our extensive testing period and throughout the production, we were all confident Picture Canning would be able to meet the challenges of Peaky Blinders and despite the endless requests to change the equipment (particularly the lenses!), you never let us down and were always very fair about the rates you charged. I also know that on a daily basis you were a pleasure to deal with and that nothing ever seemed to be a problem no matter how last minute the request so many thanks for all of that.”

“The greatest praise we can give to Picture Canning is that when hiring equipment for jobs we don't even consider going anywhere else.
Whether it is with quick responses for quotes, assistance with lists, advice on specific equipment or their all round customer service, across the board Picture Canning are fantastic.
Most importantly however, their gear is always of the highest standard, with the team in house offering knowledge and support during prep and the comfort of knowing that their support will be there during the shoot if needed.”
