Professional, Reliable Photographer for Businesses

I am a Professional Photographer specialising in commercial work, for businesses, marketing, advertising, interiors, architecture, products, food and all marketing and PR needs.

Covering all of South & West Wales, including Cardiff, Newport, Swansea, Pembrokeshire, Carmarthenshire and across the Valleys. Travelling further as needed.

I work with marketing departments and marketing professionals to produce images that reflect the business and fit in with existing corporate imagery if required. Photography briefs may be detailed, requiring specific aspects to be covered, angles or lighting while incorporating creative input. Or the brief can be flexible enabling more creativity for a new marketing look.

 

Creative, Professional Photography

Images are an important aspect in creating a dialogue between the customer and the business. A first glance at a brochure, display stand or website is a first impression that influences a potential customer. The images are vital in that first encounter. Time, money and energy spent on those images lasts for years and is of huge value to any business.

I am a photographer that works with businesses to create images to sell your services, property and products. It is a working relationship between your vision and my creativity and technical skill that brings life to your marketing. I take pride in delivering what you need for your business, through discussion and striving to understand what you want, while adding my own experience and vision to the mix.

Marketing / PR Photography

Experienced in working to marketing photography briefs and delivering high quality images, on time, with a variety of views, angles and aspects to meet any publishing requirement.

A range of marketing images can be photographed in one session, from interiors and exteriors, to products, people, action, food and drink. See the Marketing / PR pages for examples.

Available across South and West Wales for Public Relations photoshoots, covering launches, news events, special events, store openings, and any PR events that need coverage.

Interior Photography

Extensive experience of interior photography shoots ranging from newly opened schools, refurbished hotels, guest houses, large chain stores, small chain stores, properties, restaurants, bars, holiday cottages, houses for sale, AirBB, B&B, and the Great Hall in Swansea and Queens Arcade in Cardiff.

Shoots can be to capture the whole of the interiors, or to focus on one aspect that may have been supplied, such as the flooring, wall covering, or interior fittings.

Property photography capturing interiors ideal for hotels, AirBB, B&B, restaurants, properties for sale, self catering holiday accommodation, offices, and any interior design that needs to be photographed.

Architectural Photography

Equipped with the latest architectural lenses, including the Canon 17mm Tilt Shift, photographing architecture, either inside or out, can be done to meet the most demanding of clients requirements for lighting, coverage, and perspective control. The photography can capture large buildings with correct verticals, and combined with the best lighting to highlight specific features, or parts of the building, such as paving or exterior lighting.

Architectural Photography requires the most appropriate lighting, which may be full sun, soft from clouds, or even night time. Careful research and a site recce can be done as needed to plan a shoot with the best lighting.

 

 

Food Photography

Food needs careful handling and an eye for preparation, lighting, perspective, lens choice, and the creation of scenes from clean white backgrounds, to complicated table or kitchen settings. Lighting is particularly important as it can bring out all the colours and textures if done correctly, and make the food appealing.

Food photography shoots can be done on site at restaurants, hotels, or production premises, using portable studio lighting equipment usually consisting of studio flashes with large soft boxes and various reflectors to manipulate the light direction and softness. Less formal food shoots can be done using available window light, reflectors, with props and background available on the premises.
