Chrome and Silver Product Photography

Over the years I have photographed every type of jewel and precious metal imaginable so when we were approached by a Warwickshire based local designer and manufacturer of high quality architectural hardware to do their photography.  I thought nothing of the challenge we faced, I now know photographing chrome is probably the most difficult type of product photography going.

I have photographed a lot of hand worked silver jewellery which can be tricky, but that is nothing in comparison to photographing chrome.  It is basically like taking photographs of a three dimensional mirror. However,  I have always liked a challenge and I am not known for giving up easily.  It has taken a lot of patience but I am now producing work that my client and I are happy with.

A Very Warwickshire Wedding - Brendan & Marie @ Pageant House

Here are a few images from the wedding of Marie and Brendan who got married on the 25th April 2015 at the registry Pageant House registry office in Warwick, Warwickshire. They hired me for my two hours wedding photography package where I was able to capture the pre wedding drinks in the Warwick Arms Hotel, then the service at the Pageant House followed by formal group photographs in the Pageant House gardens and then half an hours photography back at Marie and Brendans home where they were having their reception.

I absolutely put the same amount of effort into my wedding photography regardless of the time I am hired for and I hope this can be seen in the images I have shared here, which are just ten out of the one hundred finished photographs supplied to Marie and Brendan.

Photographer with CSCS Card

Recently we trained and qualified for an operatives card under the Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS).  This means that we can show a card to prove that we meet the high standard of Health & Safety required to work as a photographer within any UK construction site.

We have our own PPE (Personal Protection Equipment) including high visibility jackets and trousers, hard hats, steel toe cap boots, safety gloves, safety eye wear and ear defenders as well as Chapter 8 compliant vehicle chevrons. 

We can deploy a range of high quality photography equipment for any photography task either from on the ground or in the air. On the ground we have high resolution DSLR's, panoramic heads for creating precision panoramas for surveying work, survey poles for adding scale.  In the sky we can deploy our Remotely Piloted Aircraft System (RPAS) owned by our sister company Dataq Technologies Ltd.  Which holds CAA (Civil Aviation Authority) permission to fly RPAS commercially throughout the United Kingdom.  Our license is number BNUC-S 007-11-02-02/1 a license we have held since 2011.

Before we qualified for the CSCS card we have worked on many construction sites in central London as well as highways projects, but the addition of the card adds to our continued commitment to raising standards and working safely and effectively in commercial and construction environments.

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.
