About

Tidy Eye PR’s founder is Raymond Goldsmith, a communications consultant, entrepreneur, lobbyist, fundraiser, professional editorial photographer, filmmaker and screenwriter.

An experienced Public Relations Consultant across the UK, Europe and the USA he has to date helped elect politicians, gained $2M in funding from IBM for a US pet tracking programme and raised over £400,000 for various UK organisations including the SS Freshspring which he successfully publicised in order to bring the ship to where it now is in Bideford, North Devon.

In 2014/2015 he publicised a campaign on behalf of North Devon’s fishermen when the EU cut their quota, ensuring the industry kept afloat.

He regularly works with the Royal Marines Association of North Devon, is the media representative for Appledore Residents Association and often works Pro Bono with animal, environmental and cancer charities.

He has worked with the world-renowned Anderson Entertainment of Thunderbirds fame, resulting in the successful crowd-funding for one of its new projects. He is also a successful environmental campaigner ensuring several controversial development proposals received enough media attention to rally residents into action, thus stopping the applications totally.

He partners with PR and Creative Branding companies in London and the South West, one of which is headed by Henry Gewanter, one of the UKs best PRs.

BACKGROUND

Growing up in the worlds of banking and show business led to a unique view on the influence of the public image, resulting in a preference for visual storytelling, the foundation of his company’s approach.

His professional career began at the London studio of photographer David Bailey and from there he worked with some of the world’s most influential photographic image makers, including Terry O’Neill, Clive Arrowsmith, John Swannell, Annie Leibovitz, Steven Meisel and David Montgomery.
Early freelance editorial assignments came through The Face and ID magazine but along the way it was Sex Pistol Svengali Malcolm Mclaren who first mentored Raymond in the arts of image management. This led to a long stint in Los Angeles and the emergence of a flair for publicity.

TODAY
