Narberth Pembrokeshire

Photoshoot capturing the Pembrokeshire market town of Narberth. Large, hi resolution files, using a Canon 5DSR and 17mm Tilt Shift architectural lens. Combined RAW files in many images to bring in plenty of sky to allow for text in marketing material. The size of the images at about 8000px wide allow for extensive cropping for use in both print and web.

For large spaces, such as exhibitions, theatres, stadiums, halls, business venues, hotels, or as here the galleries at the National Museum Cardiff, the use of high quality, wide angle, perspective control lenses (architectural tilt shift) allows the entire space to be photographed, producing high resolution files.

Stadium Plaza Cardiff

The Rugby World Cup 2015 at the Millennium Stadium, Cardiff, provided the impetus to the owner of the Stadium Plaza - right next to the Millennium Stadium - to commission architectural photographs of the building showing its proximity to the stadium and the crowds attracted there.

With perfect light and a clear day the decision to photograph the Stadium Plaza was taken at short notice. Many excellent marketing images were produced, ranging from day to night.

Below are some of the photographs from the shoot.
