Adding Flash to Ambient Light

This is another from Jo and Paul’s wedding, and like the gate image, this was just one of those scenarios you kinda stumble across.

Competitive Hair Styling Entry

  This isn’t a headshot, or even a portrait. It’s actually a product shot. Well, kinda.

Corporate Headshot Photography

  Corporate headshot photography needs to say more than “hello!”, because it’s also representative of the business. That can mean including the ambience of the setting, or putting the subject in context.

Product Photography – Perspex Signs

  As products go, these signs had their own set of challenges. The main thing I wanted to preserve, was the three dimensional nature and depth of the acrylic. The numbering was quite pronounced within the plastic, and I wanted to make sure that was obvious to the viewer. What I didn’t want, was any glare or flaring caused by the highly polished perspex.

The Northern String Quartet

  The above image is a composite of four images, suggested by my assistant Wayne. The original portraits were to be full length, in an environment conducive to an era when a string quartet would have been very much at home.

Engineering Product Photography

  This was an unusual shoot. Not really the subject, or the lighting etc. More the circumstances than anything.
