Commercial Break

Commercial Break..


Commercial Break .. not really.. just a pause between photoshoots.
With one or two additional sessions popped in there to keep everyone on their toes.

This is the 2nd time I’ve photographed these lovely people and my brief was a simple job of grabbing some new faces, updating some others and then capturing some “live” action around the office to provide them with some new material for use on their website. Sounds easy enough eh?..

Shooting ambient light has always been the photographers challenge, modern cameras are now much more capable at capturing an image in difficult conditions with super sensitivity always touted as the bees knees. It seems we have it all. Doesn’t always happens that way it seems.

I had a great bunch of willing models, loads of space.. and flippin’ ‘orrible British weather!¬†Something you don’t think of as having any effect on indoor photography but hey.. go figure. We got some great shots. We created some beauties just right for putting up there on tha t’internet thing. Everything looked good. People were happy. High fives everywhere. But it just didn’t look sharp. Something didn’t gell.

So today we re-shot a few frames and because the sun was out and we had our happy hat on, we grabbed what we needed and finished the job. Yay!


Love my job. Whatever it takes.

I’m one happy photobunny.

Focus on who you are and you’ll find people are already looking for you.
Google might be the bees knees at searching for what you’re looking for with all that key-wording and fancy search algorithms but there’s no better way to make sure your audience know they’ve found you than a great big smiling face to greet them on their results page.

Being “on-line” and getting found is big business.

Being seen is even bigger!

Get yourself photographed now! A face to greet your guests is so much better than pages of endless words and adds. Once your searchers know who they’re dealing with, they’ll spend more time listening to what you have to say. That’s gotta be good business.

Let everyone find out who you are. Create your online identity. Call us and arrange a portrait shoot and we’ll soon have you known.

Identity. Get yours!

Corporate Image

Sometimes you need a corporate image, a point of contact, a face to see.

People deal with people and we expect to do business with someone we can connect with, a person, an approachable person, a professional and a trustworthy image. Not an invisible entity over a phone line or an internet connection.

Get to your customers visually.

Family selfies

Taking family selfies certainly adds variety to your portfolio.
But when there’s a 68 year gap between new and old it’s gotta be worth the effort.

My past, my present, my happiness, my life.. this is my blood. I love them all. I’m so glad we could do this.

The Chapmans.. so far.
