Deli Pops

Deli Pops are a St Agnes-based hand-made ice lolly company set up by Joe and Victoria Waters. Their delicious lollies are made from locally sourced and seasonal ingredients and currently include flavours such as Melon and Mint (a personal favourite of mine), Red Plum and Aniseed, Strawberry and the refreshing Granny’s Lemonade.

I joined them at the St Ives Food and Drink Festival to create some images for their Facebook page and website. They wanted to show the people behind the business as well as capturing images of the products, promotional materials and the many happy customers.

Jodie Young at Ocean Breeze Salon

Jodie Young, a hairdresser from Newquay based at Sands Resort Hotel and Spa, is about to launch her first Facebook page and I was delighted to be able to create some images for her to use. She wanted to be able to show her salon at its best, herself at work and have a high quality photograph of her reward scheme cards to promote on the page.

In additional to the full size images, some of the images were also cropped and supplied at 851×315 pixels. The exact dimensions for a Facebook ‘cover’ image.

A selection of more heavily processed and stylised images was also included on the final cd-rom if the client wishes to use them at any time.

Portrait of Maths Tutor

This week my own Father asked me to photograph him for his website. He runs a Maths Tutoring business and required a formal headshot for the first page of his site, johnedmondsmaths.co.uk

Utilising my Lastolite Hilite background, I was able to set up a studio in his front room and produce a professional headshot in a short amount of time. He was then able to preview the images taken on my iPad to be sure that he had the final photograph he required. The plain white background was later coloured and textured in Photoshop to soften the image.

Studio image to client’s requirements

This week I was asked by a local IT and Business Consultant to produce an image to be used in a business presentation.

The image needed to show a glass half full. The client was happy with a glass of wine or a glass of water but when asked preferred the wine glass so this was used.

This is the image I created. The composition allows text to be placed over the right side of the image if the client chooses to do this.

Lifestyle Family Shoot

Finding a time when a family of active people are all free for a photoshoot is never easy, but last Sunday the light was perfect and the whole Millington family were free so we headed to Crantock to get some lifestyle photographs taken.

I love capturing the spontaneous interaction between siblings.

Whole family posing in sand dunes for photograph
Although I normally focus on a more candid style for lifestyle photography, it was a great opportunity to capture a family portrait.

 

If you would like to arrange this kind of shoot for your family, call me on 07979 301741 or send me an email and we can arrange a photoshoot.

What is Commercial Photography?

The question I’m asked most about what I do is “What is Commercial Photography?”

More often than not people assume ‘photographer’ means ‘wedding photographer’.

I like to summarise what I do in 4 words – Creating images for business.

This could be many things but examples include, photographs of a hotel or holiday let, images of the products produced by a business, food photography for menus or commercial portraits of staff. These images can then be used by the business for any of their promotional needs.

I concentrate on specialising in this field to ensure I create the most effective photographs possible for the businesses that need them.
