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 […]

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 […]

Editing an image

Chapel Porth PR4Photos

This can be quite a contentious subject. Should you edit a photo, or leave it as it came out of the camera. For me, as a professional photographer, I have no choice, as I shoot in RAW. Therefore I have to edit my photos. For those of you that shoot in jpg, you do have […]

What’s the point of ‘before and after’ photography?

PR4Photos Gloweth Construction Builders

One of my clients, Gloweth Ltd, recently posted on Facebook to show an example of what they can do with a dilapidated property. Their restoration work is second to none, and I am very proud to photograph their work for them. When I first visited this property, situated in west Cornwall, I struggled to get […]

Storm Ciara, from 2020

storm ciara portreath cornwall pr4photos

Looking back to last year, Storm Ciara hit Cornwall, and I decided to photograph it at high tide. This image was taken at Portreath. It’s a spot that is very well known amongst photographers, but it’s not one that I had ever visited for photography before, in good weather or bad weather. It was amazing to watch […]

Photographing the Cornish Covid vaccination centres, for Openreach

Covid vaccination site

Back in January I was asked by Openreach to take photos of the work they were doing to install fibre optics into the Covid vaccination centres that were being built at the Royal Cornwall Showground, and the Stithians Showground.   I was asked to photograph the locations from both ground level, and from the air. […]

Saying goodbye to the Truro Football ground

Truro Football ground

As a lot of people local to Truro probably know, Truro Football ground is going to be bulldozed soon, and as such the grounds people are busy dismantling what they can, before the demolition people people move in. A new Lidl GB store will be appearing here in the near future. With that in mind, […]

The benefit of having a unique business name

Oystercatcher Polzeath

Having a unique business name has its advantages. If I do a Google image search for pr4photos, the only images that show up are images by me. Recently I took a look, as it can be interesting to see where some my images are used. Very often I do a photoshoot, and that’s the last […]
