Smile. Point. Click. Shoot. Hire

Lantern Recruitment provides a bespoke service to help you find the creative shoot production professionals you need.

Working across both the editorial and commercial production industries, and with close relationships in the publishing, retail, PR and ad agency worlds, we’re able to find and place high calibre creative talent.

How we work

Our focused contacts across the visual media landscape means we can market roles to a smaller – and therefore more relevant – group of candidates. Which makes it faster to find the perfect person for a job.

We understand the glamour of the industry, and why so many people want to be a part of it – that’s why we only work with the brightest talents, with the relevant experience and skills.

And we intelligently interpret a client’s needs to deliver only the candidates that are suitable to each specific role. Which is why you’re assured of only seeing the best people.

Our specialisms

We’re really good at finding people for the following roles:

  • Art Directors
  • Bookings Editors
  • Content & Photoshoot Producers
  • Creative Solutions Teams
  • Editorial Teams (including Fashion, Beauty, Interiors and Travel)
  • Photographer’s Agents and Model Bookers
  • Picture Editors and Researchers
  • Retouchers


As a new business, you’d expect our fees to be extremely competitive – and they are. Of course, you only pay once we’ve introduced you to the perfect candidate and you’ve made them an offer. And if you have a budget, we can work to that too.

“Finding new staff can be a stressful time, I found Matti to be helpful and reassuring that the right person was out there. She offered carefully considered candidates and I am happy with the result. I will be using her services again in the future when needed.”
Peri Mosig, Director, Stella Creative Artists

“Matti is a great matcher … she understands what a business needs and places the right person every time , she is a pleasure to do business with and we will continue to use her services.”
Anita Grossman, Director, A&R Photographic

“Matti was hired during a period of quite dramatic change and restructure within the business. As a result, we faced hesitation and uncertainty, but Matti endeavoured to find us the right candidate regardless – always adapting to our internal changes, thoughts and feedback. The candidates that Matti put forward offered a good experience mix and her strong connections within the industry matched with her ability to approach the right candidates is evident.”
Sarah-Jane Ashby, Content Producer, Toast

“Matti takes a very tight brief and delivers only candidates that suit that specific role – she never sends through candidates that aren’t right but rather waits until she has the right one. We offered a role to the first person we saw through Matti which is a company first.”
Fiona O’Rorke, Senior Associate Director, Rain Communications
