City Vets in Exeter

Another photo day with a vets, this time City Vets in Exeter.  Probably the grandest building I have seen used by a vet and inside doesnt disappoint either.   City Vets are just about to achieve Hospital Status which is a huge achievement and a reflection of high standards of care equipment and facilities on offer at City Vets.    The photo day ran for about 6 hours  from 10 am until 4pm and we ended up with about 1100 images from which about 600 were deleted and the remaining 495 are considered keepers.  Here is a very small selection of images from the...

Ellse Clothing Photography

Just jeans at this stage but lots more branded T shirts and also a range of diesel jeans are coming.  They needed 3 photos each of 7 pairs of Jeans. They all needed to be on a plain white background to allow use on Amazon.  Elsse plan to cut out and montage lots of the images together so I look forward to seeing the final result....

Industrial Marketing Photography

Industrial product photography for Marshal Tufflex in Hastings. I do a lot of work for Marshall Tufflex, mostly product photography of there various products that are used in technical manuals and sales brochures. ¬†Every now and then the Marketing ladies ask me to create something that can be used exclusively for marketing. ¬†Generally these images are submitted to trade magazines, this images may end up on the front of “Electrician Monthly”… How exciting… ¬†Joking aside getting these images in the right places provides huge exposure for Marshal Tufflex.         I have included the image I was sent as part of the brief, ¬†working in a very tight, dark and dusty corner of their industrial unit. ¬† Using just a couple of small flash guns and a few gels has hopefully achieved a very useable shot from quite difficult conditions....

Natures Best

Just been doing some photography work for Natures Best. ¬†They needed new banner shots for their website and marketing material. ¬† Simple brief and all of the shots they needed (24 in total) were completed in 3 hours.

We’ve grown a lot since then and have moved once or twice because of that, but we remain based in Tunbridge Wells. We now handle hundreds of thousands of orders every year and every customer is assured of a friendly welcome and that their purchase will be despatched promptly and reliably....

More Vet Photography

Here are a few more images from the many vet photography days I do. I travel all over the country photographing veterinary practices and provide them with images that are used in brochures, flyers signs, display boards and website, to mention a few.¬† I have seen my images printed on floor stickers, enquiry packs, mobiles, vans, books, hand-outs and discount booklets.¬†¬† For vets having an image library of professionally taken images from which you can draw on is fundamentally important.¬† Badly taken photos make any website or publication look amateurish at best and absolutely terribly at worst.   [Show as...

Dan and Ali at Herstmonceux Castle

Last Saturday I got to photograph my sister in laws wedding at Herstmonceux Castle. No pressure there then ūüôā ¬†Having just lost her father, it was always going to be an emotional day for the whole family, me included. What a wonderful day it turned into, the sun shone all day and the setting was fantastic. Herstmonceux Castle is a hidden gem in East Sussex for weddings. It’s a science college so they don’t do many weddings there as they can only take place during the holidays, plan ahead 18month to 2 years if you want to be sure of securing the castle as your wedding venue. The biggest problem I have being a wedding photographer at Herstmonceux Castle is the shear volume of places to take photographs. ¬†Everywhere you look there are fantastic backdrops, stone arches, staircases, bridges, moats, fields, gardens, lakes and woods to name a few. ¬†I could spend the whole day taking photographs there and still not use come close to running out of places or ideas. ¬†I have photographed quite a few weddings at Herstmonceux and it is without doubt, hands down my favourite venue. This is not just because its a castle, I have photographed ¬†weddings at Hever Castle, Leeds Castle, Wadhurst Castle, Scotney Castle, Penshurst Place (which might as well be called a castle) and no doubt a few more that escape my memory now. All of the images below are from Ali and dans wedding but there are lots more wedding images from Herstmonceux Castle in my gallery. [Show as...

Lake Como – Italy

The beautiful lake Como was the setting for Maren and Kristoph’s wedding. A German couple living in Switzerland getting married in Italy, now that was an adventure. ¬†So how did you get the job of photographing this wedding you may ask. Like most of my weddings it was a referral, of sorts. Maren was a bridesmaid at a wedding I photographed about 5 years ago, I remembered her because she brought a print and I had to send it to Switzerland. ¬†So last year I got an email from Maren saying she always wanted me to photograph her wedding and would I mind travelling to Lake Como. Um… let me think…ok, what an honour. A bit of planning later I flew to Milan from gatwick the day before the wedding, got in a hire car with a Canadian guitar player from Greenwich (also going to the wedding, not just a random) and headed for the lake. Most of the rest I can tell with pictures so stop reading and start looking ūüôā [Show as slideshow]...
