Property Photography

For the last 7 years I have been commissioned to photograph a wide variety of properties across Norfolk (and beyond). I’ve received instructions to shoot all manor of homes, from Apartments to Cottages and Townhouses to Country Manors. The assignments have come from home owners as well as agents, even holiday cottage companies.

For all the show that comes with a glossy brochure, or an impressive website that showcases a property, the key concern is showing off the qualities of this valuable asset in a realistic way, not too much editing (and many fall into this trap of over saturating colours or applying filters, and these can make the images look artificial  – a big turn off). Be under no illusion, this is a commercial investment that the seller (perhaps that’s you) makes in order to get the best price.  I guess in the same way, if we were selling our car we would have it valeted before we sold it to get best the price, after all you have to make the most of what you have, right?

As Estate Agents would say this is ‘kerb appeal’, and in an age where we rely entirely upon the visuals presented to us on Estate Agents’ website it is essential we make sure that vital first impression counts. I’ll say that again….MAKE YOUR FIRST IMPRESSION COUNT.

I know there are plenty of websites out there to help advise on what to do and what not to do, de-clutter this….repaint that…tidy up the garden…etc. so I’m not going to repeat it all as it’s fairly obvious stuff. I am going to end with a commercial observation for you. Over the last 7 years I have noticed one key thing….. Professionally Photographed properties sell quicker than those shot with a point-and-shoot camera.

So, if a local professional photographer charges around £150 (depending on number of images required) for Property Photography then it absolutely will more than pay for itself when it’s sale time.

Protection & Management Series Event | Exhibition Photographer

Exhibition & Event PhotographyExhibition Photography – Excel, London

I was commissioned to cover the very first London based event specialising in a wide range of security, facilities and safety measures.  It is the biggest show of its kind in Europe.  Attracting 1600 exhibitors, 45,000 visitors and completely taking over the whole of Excel.  Therefore it is quite a staggering show, I therefore brought in two additional photographers to ensure blanket coverage over the three day duration of the event. With a detailed brief for each day we gave comprehensive coverage to this popular event.  Providing on the fly editing for frequent uploads to social media, in order to keep momentum and public interest in the event.  As well as producing a full edit of all images shot at the end of each day, this enables the event organisers to move quickly with post-show marketing activity to all their media partners as well as the wider media.

We received some fantastic feedback on the service we provided and have been booked again to cover the next show later this year.

Of course, not all events are on this scale, but the same service is needed in order to fully leverage the time, management and expense that has gone into organising your event.  Getting your message out there through the use of compelling show imagery tells a more powerful story than words alone.  The service we offer is UK wide so please feel free to get in touch and talk through your plans, we’d be happy to help.Exhibition & Event PhotographyExhibition & Event PhotographyExhibition & Event PhotographyExhibition & Event PhotographyExhibition & Event PhotographyExhibition & Event PhotographyExhibition & Event PhotographyExhibition & Event PhotographyExhibition & Event PhotographyExhibition & Event PhotographyExhibition & Event PhotographyExhibition & Event PhotographyExhibition & Event PhotographyExhibition & Event PhotographyExhibition & Event PhotographyExhibition & Event PhotographyExhibition & Event PhotographyExhibition & Event PhotographyExhibition & Event PhotographyExhibition & Event PhotographyExhibition & Event PhotographyExhibition & Event Photography

Bentley Priory Museum – Commercial Website Photography

Bentley Priory Museum were looking to update their website imagery and came to me with a requirement for casual imagery, to capture people looking around the museum, as well formal shots of all of their rooms.  Exhibits as well as artefacts were shot to give a full appreciation of the environment.

You feel totally immersed in the era when you step inside their museum, it really is astonishing.  It is a magnificent building which boasts an ornate sweeping staircase, intricately designed and painted ceilings and spectacular chandeliers. To the rear it has views across the countryside which really add something special to the whole experience.

Bentley Museum had arranged models of their target age groups to look around the museum.  Parents walked with their children around the museum absorbing the history, and later the children were let loose in the art room downstairs where they created flight-inspired works of art to adorn the walls of the museum.  We had a great time getting the children involved.  Meanwhile the formal shots of the rooms were to really showcase the details they had spent a very long time restoring, paying homage to those that flew during the wars.

A High Dynamic Range photography technique was used to ensure the full light and shade of the formal interior shots was captured.

All the images from this shoot, as well as others commissioned since, can be found at their website just here – Bentley Priory Museum

Campaign Magazine Editorial Photography Shoot

Haymarket run a number of titles, both online and print. For this shoot I was to cover a feature for their online and print publication, Campaign.  I was needed to document the day in the life of a winner of their recent competition.  Jonathan had won a competition and his prize, as chosen by him as a keen cook himself, was to work alongside renowned chef Daniel Clifford at Midsummer House in Cambridge.  The brief was to capture a slice of the day with Jonathan, as well as documenting his time with Daniel as he took direction while creating some dishes.  A thoroughly enjoyable shoot, although at times a little cramped, after all the last thing you want in a working kitchen is a 6 ft  guy with 2 cameras round his neck!  I managed to stay clear of hot stoves and busy chefs though.

The article was published online at Campaign Live’s Website and on Brand Republic’s site, as well as in print for Campaign Magazine.

Waitrose Weekend Magazine | Editorial Photography

Waitrose Weekend Editorial shoot

My first assignment for Waitrose’s Weekend Magazine.

I was called, very last minute, to cover a feature for their section called “My Weekend”.  This is a section where they interview people from all walks of life to talk about what they do that’s different at their weekend.  With one day’s notice, my brief was to get to the Lifeboat Station at Caister, Norfolk, just a couple miles north of Great Yarmouth, and get an environmental portrait but without it being too posed.  This is usually a straight forward task, and at a Lifeboat Station there would be plenty of backdrops available.  Having checked in at the office I met Paul, he was a friendly guy, but he had a job to do and I, understandably, had to fit in with his routine of setting up the Lifeboat for the upcoming drill that morning.  Paul was very accommodating but I had to pick my moment.

In between his duties, and during constant rain, he called me over and said we had a few minutes as he had to launch the boat, although Waitrose would only use one shot I had to give them a wide choice to select from.  I climbed up on the boat and, with rain now pelting down, we quickly moved through a number of shots, while balancing on a wet Lifeboat.  Five minutes later, that’s it…we were done.  I hopped down from the boat and set off back home to upload the proof shots to the client.  A fresh and invigorating, if slightly wet, way to start your Sunday morning for sure.
