Processing Corporate Portrait Shoot

It has been a day of sitting at the computer processing the images from last weeks corporate portrait shoot in Basingstoke through the computer. Also doing the horrid admin side of the job, does anyone really enjoy doing admin work?
Also organizing another two days corporate photography for August, one day in Birmingham and the other in Gatwick :-)

Corporate Portrait Shoot in Basingstoke

Yesterday I had the pleasure of photographing some corporate portraits for a Hypnotherapist in Basingstoke. Using her lovely chaise to pose on. There were three changes of clothes and various poses. This was so she could use the images in different types of publications and websites. I also photographed her therapy room whilst I was there.
As with a lot of people she told me she hadn’t enjoyed the experience in the past of having her photograph taken, but on this occasion she was smiling and very quickly catching onto the kind of poses I was wanting to achieve. Having put the images on a private website for her to look at today she told me she thought the shots were lovely…so a happy client!

Corporate Photography for Carpet Company in Basingstoke

Picked up a job yesterday in Basingstoke from an existing client for product photography. They sell carpets and rugs. There are 35 samples to shoot then an additional 8 lifestyle shots. The trick on this job is capturing accurate colour as there are subtle colour changes between the samples. As I was one of the early adopters of the professional digital cameras buying my first camera back in 1999, I am very able to achieve this due to my experience which is why this client keeps coming back to me :-)

Wedding in Basingstoke – We dodged the rain!

On Saturday I had the pleasure of capturing the wedding of Sheree and Mike who married in Basingstoke. There were some heavy showers but we were fortunate to not be caught in any of them! Although we were prepared we had brollies prepared just in case. It was an honor to be asked to capture the day for such a lovely couple :-)

Two different styles of networking both producing business for their members! If you haven’t experienced either then you really do need to as you will be missing out on new business.

Food Photography & Staff Portraits in Basingstoke

Today I have been shooting for a restaurant in Basingstoke. I photographed five main course dishes. Lighting and depth of field are key when shooting food. I always like to get in close to show the texture and shape when photographing food.
I also produced some staff photos of some new members of staff so they can update their website.
