Product Photography

Technical product photography is not something I do very often, but I really enjoy the challenge. Quite different from photographing events, or even property, the photographer controls everything when it comes to product photography. Firstly the background. For most product photography a white background is preferable, as the products need to be shown clearly on […]

Business Secretary visits British Lithium

Kwasi Kwarteng MP, Secretary of State at the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, has visited British Lithium’s pilot plant near Roche.

Wistmans Wood

On a recent visit to Plymouth, I had a few hours spare in the afternoon, and took the opportunity to visit Wistmans Wood, high on Dartmoor. The moss covered boulders, and twisted, ancient brambles of Wistman’s Wood are haunted by tales of druids, ghosts, and supernatural spooks. For the real details, I’ll quote Wikipedia: Wistman’s […]

Visit by the Archbishop of Canterbury

The Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Reverend Justin Welby was in the Diocese of Truro on Friday, meeting with the Bishop of Truro, The Rt Revd Philip Mounstephen, and his wife Ruth.  I photographed his visit to The Bishops’ Learning Academy, in Newquay. Following a welcome by head teacher Adam Richards, the Archbishop had a […]

Photographing food

What makes a good food photo? A good food photo should look delicious. The colours and textures of the dish should be celebrated. If your mouth doesn’t water when looking at the photos, you did something wrong. Knowing how to photograph food to get great results requires a specific knowledge of what works best and […]

Pass the Keys photography

Really pleased to announce that I am now working with Rosie Bradbury, from Pass the Keys – the UK’s leading Airbnb management company, to provide professional photography of their properties. These are a selection of photos from the first couple of properties I have photographed for them.

Business profile photography

Having a quality, professional profile photograph is very important. Whether it’s for a business website, advertising, or social media, your image is what people see. They may never meet you, so this could be the only impression they get of what you look like. In the past, the traditional business portrait was taken against an […]

Official portrait of the Mayor of Truro

This year, for the first time, I have taken the official portrait of the Mayor of Truro –  Councillor Steven Webb, being the current Mayor. Many years ago I worked for a company called Cameracraft Photography, a family owned photography business, based in Truro, which had been operating in the area for decades – probably […]

Wedding Photography

I don’t actively advertise for wedding photography. I am first and foremost a PR and commercial photographer, and that is what I do full time. Can I do wedding photography – most certainly. The skills of a PR photographer transfer very well into wedding photography, whether it be posing the happy couple, or organising large […]

Photography for Dales Cornwall

Dales Renault Dacia

I had a really nice phone call this morning concerning photography I did for Dales Cornwall back in June. At the time they were looking to update their stock imagery of the various dealership sites they operate in Cornwall. I visited each site and photographed both interior and exterior, to provide images of each department. […]
