Consultancy and Training

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 post Lockdown, our new digital age of 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 or 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.

Case Study:

P h o t o g r a p h i c  C o n s u l t a n t   f o r   P o r s c h e   G B  

For the two past years 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. 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. From my training the front page of the website for used cars now shows the same angle and easy to compare imagary.  With consumers taking one week less to decide on the actual car, and without the usual walk through of the car marts, 68% of car purchases are decided on line, the digital front page is a key element to my consultation.

  • Explain how to find the beauty in any subject matter.
  • Inspire a new creativity and confidence from the workforce using the new photographic tools learnt in the day.
