Photography is known to act as a 1000 words. The initial impact of a photograph can make or break the product on display. A photograph can tell the consumer immediately the status of a company. Today within this digital age, decent photography is far more important than in previous years with less foot fall on the high street, it is used as a shop window on Social Media and on websites. Many clients have all the gear but no idea and employing a photographer every time a product changes can be very expensive.
Let me help you get to grips with the possibilities that quality in-house photography can offer, from assisting you with the tools and confidence to create product photography and Social Media story telling, internal reports and staff enhancement. Contact me for my day rates and availability.

For the past year I have worked with Porsche GB training their used car Sales Execs, Valets, Progress Chasers and the occasional Centre Principle, to understand how to photograph the beauty of the car, in this case a very stunning subject matter, the Porsche car. From where to stand and how to stand or crawl inside, to what equipment is required in order to compete with today’s professional photographers. Each used car centre uses their own staff to take the photograph and not a professional hired in photographer, it is vital for each person to create a substantial portfolio of the car in order to place it on the internet to sell. 68% of car purchases are decided on line. Photographs are vital.

I utterly adore walking around beautiful cities in the sunshine or rain and have chosen London and Oxford to create my photographic street walks. The architecture, people, cars in Chelsea, the atmosphere of history and cinematic stories – all stop me in my tracks. I have organised another set of walks that allow a mild 2 miles to take all day. In London, we start at the Chelsea Arts Club on Old Church Street and walk all over Chelsea and the surrounding environments, back to either the Chelsea Arts Club or just, meander somewhere else, through some of London’s most gorgeous and ingenious architecture, there are photos waiting to happen, always with a good cup of tea at the end to discuss the day of photography.
In Oxford we start at the Bodleian Library Cafe (Benugo) and then see where our lenses take us. Often peeping into College squares, mainly looking up at the spires, and squeaking through the hustling lanes full of students on Bicycles. We end up with a good cup of tea somewhere and discuss the day’s stolen scenes.
Autumn is here and so is the rain along with the muted colours of the two cities. A perfect feast for your eyes and mind. Contact me for a one to one day in Oxford or London – your choice – at discounted price of £200.00 (personal tuition usually £50 / hour). This will include a welcome tea and coffee, but bring your own lunch or we can stop at a cafe for refreshments. All workshops start at 10.30 am and end at 16.00 pm. Good walking shoes a must and remember the British weather.
The street photography day is relaxed, a time to be at one with your camera.. and me! Book a session and we can work out a date.
