Product Photography Warwickshire Working with Horses

99% of the time I take product photographs in my studio, however a recent customer wanted their product photography done at their premises. The client wanted standard product shots on a white backgrounds but in addition they also wanted some photographs of their products on their horses. 

So packed all my kit up including large white and black backgrounds, lights, stands and reflectors and headed for the customers farm. I then set up my equipment in a large barn to photograph the biggest horse I have ever seen!

I am fairly tall but this horse towered over me and my camera so much so that I had to stand on a box to be at the same height as my tripod to photograph the horse. It was a challenge and also a thrill to set up my equipment in a barn which was a first for me.  That said though I am well versed in using my studio lights and quickly got set up to where I needed to be. 

The next few hours flew by where I photographed a series of ten bridles on Eric the horse who was very well behaved throughout. Afterwards we then when into warmer climes of the clients office to set up the white background and photograph the rest of the products.

As I mentioned above I would usually do this type of work in my studio but by being on site with the client they where able to direct how there photographs were taken which makes the process of taking the photographs so much easier. Resulting in set ups that the customers knows will work for their product and I know will work in terms of lighting.

This was my first time working with horses on location it was very enjoyable. I found the horses to be very well behaved. I have worked with lots of animals but I now think horses are the best to work with and look forward to doing more in the future.

November Update

Its been a very busy few months and its hard to believe we are nearly at Christmas. As expected for the time of year I have been very busy with family portrait photographs, but I have also done a wedding some interesting aerial photography projects, product photography and some cool business portraits

I do wish I was competent of keeping up with this blog and adding new pieces of work as they happen but it never works out that way and I always forget.

I will add some posts soon though, in the meantime I wanted to share a link to Sohei Nishino a Japanese photographer. Who creates aerial view dioramas of cities by piecing together thousands of photographs he has taken of the city on the ground.

http://www.soheinishino.com/en/works/dioramamap/london/index.html

He uses a film camera to photograph the cities as he walks the streets for roughly a month, before developing the negatives and finally arranging the prints to make up the scene.

Pretty cool stuff.

Business Portraits Warwickshire

We live in an increasingly visual world where the creation of business portraits to see what people look like is very useful for job applications, business profiles or on websites.

However, most people are not comfortable having their photograph taken, almost 100% of customers I meet say they do not like having their photograph taken. This creates a challenge for photographers which is met by creating good conversation to take the customers your mind off the photography to create relaxed portraits, which is one of my favourite parts of the job is being able to chat with people from all sections of society.

This is week I've created two business portraits one for a lecturer at Warwick University who wanted an updated picture for his course web page and a lady who required a portrait for a job application.

Event Photography Cafe Rouge Leamington Spa

On the 30th October I was employed to provide event photography at the re-launch event of Cafe Rouge in Leamington Spa.  The purpose of the event was to show off the newly devised wine list created by wine expert Mathew Jukes as well as the skills of the kitchen staff to create dishes that work well with the wine.

Photography wise it was quite challenging because the restaurants is very dimly lit throughout, which really gave me the only option of using my flash gun.  That said I did get some time to create some available light shots with Mathew and the Cafe Rouge branded Citroen 2CV outside by Royal Priors

Clothing Photography Warwickshire

I was approached by Melimoto to provide product photography for their new range of motorcycle clothing. Matt the owner is a typical businessman who will throw his hand to anything if it will save money.  I do it myself and although it does save money it doesn't save time and the results often aren't as good.

Up until now Matt has done all his product photography himself, he told me that he didn't think I could do a better job but due to time constraints he had to hire me in.

First of all I visited the Melimoto factory in the Black Country, Matt wanted some arty shots of the product. We discussed various options and ideas but settled on a visit to the factory because they have lots of bike parts and helmets that would make a good background, that are relevant to the product being sold.  

90% of the time I do most of my work at my studio in Warwick, but I can easily take my studio with me to locations.  The main reason for this is to take advantage of the extra power studio flash creates and also the flexibility for creative lighting and to fit around my clients needs.

Once the creative photographs were done I took the clothing with me back to my studio to create product photos on white backgrounds. Our studio is ideal for this type of work  because we have mannequins of all types, a central town centre location ideal for deliveries and also natural light options for more natural looking product photographs.  We also have a range of backgrounds and props.

Once the clothing photography was finished Matt was very impressed with the results and said that he could see why I knew I could do a better job than he could. It is really because there is so much more to creating good quality product photography than simply using any old camera to photograph a product on a white background. I often compare a photographer to a chef, sure we can all cook to some extent, but to do it really well, takes skill, experience, dedication and time.

Natasha & John Wedding Photography

On the 5th August it was the wedding of Natasha & John who got married in Bournemouth Registry office and then had a humanist wedding ceremony on the beach at Mudeford, close to Christchurch in Dorset. It was a intimate affair but for what it lacked in size it made up for in impact. After the registry office ceremony we headed to Christchurch where we a ferry boat had been laid on to take us to Mudeford beach and then the service was held on the beach.

It was a great experience to photograph a wedding on a beach and not something I had expected to happen since Warwick is one of the furthest places from the sea in the UK and John didn’t actually mention the ceremony was happening on the beach until the day!

Wedding Photography & Events July - August 2014

From mid-July to mid-August was a busy month for wedding photography and event photography in Warwickshire.

The first wedding was for Alyson & Rob who got married at Winton House Registry Office in Stratford-upon-Avon then afterwards a small gathering of friends and family at the Baraset Barn in Alveston, near Stratford-upon-Avon

My brief was to cover the service and reception in reportage style wedding photography whilst also getting the traditional shots that remain a staple of any wedding. The assignment in total was just two hours, but however long I am hired for is just as important as an all-day assignment and I will put as much effort in as is required to get the pictures.

It was a very enjoyable few hours where the weather was the best it had been for a few days and all there was plenty of opportunity for getting the photographs I needed.



My next event was a 50th Birthday party for a local Warwick businessman held at Ashorne Hill, just outside Warwick. My brief here was to capture candid event photography of James’ guests enjoying the activities in the day time and then photograph the couples before they headed into the evening meal.

First of all I didn’t even know Ashorne Hill existed, but what lovely venue that is well worth checking out.  James had laid on sports activities, a BBQ and access to the venues leisure facilities for all his guests in the daytime and then a relaxed formal meal.  The weather was absolutely perfect probably the best day so far this year and James had created a relaxed atmosphere where I was able to capture many relaxed portraits of his guests.



On the 2nd August it was the wedding of Caroline & David, the service was held at St Joseph’s Catholic Church in Whitnash with the reception at Whitnash Golf Club.  I really enjoyed this wedding because over the last six months I’ve have got to know Caroline & David through the planning and the pre wedding engagement portraits.   It was great to see all the guests and the happy couple enjoy an emotional and very happy day.
