Pet Portraits Warwickshire

Normal 0 false false false EN-GB X-NONE X-NONE MicrosoftInternetExplorer4

On 16th November I was honoured to create an owner and pet portrait of Molly and her owner Lizzie in my studio. The sitting was a present paid for by her sister where I was on instructions to create black and white images, which is great because black and white portraits are my favourite style.

I seem to have a knack for making animals feel at home in my company and Molly was no different, in fact Lizzie and her sister were surprised how much Molly relaxed in the strange surroundings of my studio.

Ottery St Mary Tar Barrels

There is nothing I like more than watching my fellow country men and women (in the first picture it is a lady carrying a burning barrel) take part in dangerous historic pastimes. Over the years I have visited some of the best known events in the calendar such as the Cheese Rolling at Coopers Hill in Brockworth, Gloucester, Skin Kicking at the Cotswold Olimpicks in Chipping Campden and the World Nettle Eating Championships in Marshwood, Dorset.

The difference with the Tar Barrel rolling at Ottery St Mary is that spectating is nearly as dangerous as taking part. Thursday was the first time I have been,  there are literally thousands of people packed into the streets of the town with teams of locals relaying burning barrels around the streets until there is nothing left to hold on to.

It was great fun and I seriously think Warwick should come up with its own crazy event. There must be some forgotten game or event from the Towns 1100 year history that could be resurrected.

Headshot Photographer and Business Portraits Warwickshire

Warwickshire Headshot Photographer for Actors and Business Portraits

We are an established headshot photographer and business portraits provider, our studio is located in the centre of Warwick overlooking the historic Market Place.

We offer a no rush service that guarantees the creation of portraits you will love whether it is for business portraits, professional portraits, actors headshots or author portraits. To achieve this we will employ a range of lighting techniques in our studio or if its a nice day we can venture into the parks and gardens of Warwick to achieve a different look for the same price. I know Warwick very well and its hidden gems. Alternatively we can bring our headshot photographer and business portraits service to your home or business, our studio and camera equipment is completely portable.

A recent assignment was to create an actors headshots for a new student a Warwick University, he needed some good portraits to get him started in his career. After chatting with him about his hopes and aspirations we first used soft lighting for a nice approachable portrait look and then more selective lighting for a more serious defined portrait.

Large Group Photography Warwickshire

In August I was approached by the management team of Rugby Town Football Club to create a never attempted before photograph of all six hundred club members. For me this was a daunting task and something I had never done before, in fact I think up until the day of the photograph on 5th September the most people in a single photograph was about one hundred and fifty.

Although the task at hand was daunting thankfully the football club had given me enough notice to come up with a plan. My first thought was what resolution would  I require to photograph that many people in a single photograph.  I thought through many options before deciding that I would need to double my standard camera resolution, so I decided to get my hands on a fifty plus mega pixel camera.

The next aspect was working out the best position for the photograph be to taken, the team at the club had given a time of 13.00 for the photograph to be taken, with this in mind I was able to establish where the sun would be at that time of day and then recommend where the group should be placed to avoid the sun shining in the groups eyes (as it turned out it wasn't sunny on the day but it is always better to be prepared in my opinion).

I also had to establish my chosen lens field of view, to establish this I visited the football ground before the event and was able to give the club guidance on where I would like to stand and where the limits of the group would be in order to see all the banners and the members plus the club house in the background. The final consideration was a 3 metre high scaffold tower provided by the club for me to stand on. Now I am not keen on heights and with all the prep work done and the clubs coaches helping out with arranging the group into the position, my only worry became falling off the tower.

In the end though we had a very successful photo opportunity with everything going to plan and a happy customer.

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.
