I've been meaning to stop at the Port Talbot Steel Works for ages to get some shots from up on the mountain overlooking the industrial landscape. I see it from the motorway regularly travelling to Cardiff or Cirencester and it can be spectacular in the right light, and at night. Some nice industrial photography shots to be had from up on the mountain.

A shoot for TreeWorks in Pembrokeshire, West Wales. The old oak tree was dying and needed to be removed before it caused any accidents with falling branches.

The team at TreeWorks used the dismantling as a project to produce a stock of photographs for use on their website, social media and marketing material.

Over two days we set up a number of different techniques to illustrate, and they were photographed in different ways. We even did a time lapse, which can be seen at Time Lapse Photography Wales

The two days resulted in about 900 images showing the work and techniques of tree surgeons, including an aerial rescue!

We've had some fun in the studio producing water splash shots for a magazine. Speedlights were used rather than studio strobes as they give a much shorter flash duration and freeze the moving water much more effectively.

A recent shoot in a gorgeous holiday cottage right in the centre of Tenby, Pembrokeshire, Wales. These show the way that the natural lighting of the interiors can be worked with to bring out the real feel of the cottage. This would be destroyed by the inappropriate use of strobes. The wide angle architectural lens with vertical shift is used to carefully get the exact perspective required.

A simple poached egg on toast brought to life with some light from a studio strobe. The light was diffused through a large double sheet of tracing paper on a frame. Some reflectors and mirrors were used on the opposite side to fill in the shadows and highlight the toast and eggs. One light is usually best for food photography, combined with various modifiers and bounce. The quality of the food is vital, and the eggs are very fresh, actually laid the morning of the shoot. The shots were done for an editorial client in Cardiff.
