Here we are again at the start of a new year, a time to remind you of the photographic services I offer through Mediaphotos.

Mediaphotos, it's all in the name, photography for use in any media. Video is also on offer and should you wish to shoot your own images then why not let me help with some photographic training so you get the most from your iPhone photography.

The photography business has moved on at a pace over the past few years. No longer is it a dark art practiced by only those in the know, with access to a concoction of chemicals in a darkroom. Digital photography and the smart phone have seen to that.

Digital technologies have made photography available to the masses and many businesses now shoot their own photography and video. It’s a fact that modern phones and digital cameras can help you make your own images with relative ease. But two things the technology can’t offer are creativity or the photographic expertise gained over many years of working in the business that allows the experienced professional photographer to create images that meet the exacting standards that your business deserves. Standards that apply in other aspects of your business should apply to your photography output if you want to create the right impression across your social media or in your PR and marketing campaigns.

Even in the simplest portrait photography the use of light, whether ambient or flash, to create the right visual impact and the ability to have consistency of style and colour across all the portraits on your web site is of paramount importance. An experienced professional photographer has the skill and knowledge that will ensure your business is presented as it should be.

Businesses may choose to only use a professional photographer for what they see as the bigger jobs, jobs that are beyond their skill level, where quality images are required from the most difficult of situations. Events, conferences and the like. That is fine by me as that is where I excel. My years of experience and knowledge gained over my career allow me to shoot these events with ease and provide stunning, quality images from the most demanding of situations that will tell your story or showcase your event as it deserves.

If you care about the image your business presents to the world across it’s social media or PR and marketing campaigns give me a call. It’s what I do and I can help sell your story or image to the world.

Get in touch.

HEADS2HEADS2 The start of a New Year is a good time to think about updating your social media headshot. Fashions change as do hairstyles so keep your images looking fresh by updating your picture regularly. Individuals or complete teams can be accommodated.

A typical overcast and wet January day greeted me at Cardiff Airport for this shoot to mark the signing of a new contract with Global Trek Aviation. As the saying goes, "There's no such thing as bad weather, just the wrong clothing", and a little bit of fill flash helped brighten the faces.
