Frankwell Island Project

FUNKY FRANKWELL - SHREWSBURY’S UNDISCOVERED GEM

Frankwell or “Funky Frankwell” as it is often referred to is a vibrant, bustling area on the north side of the Welsh Bridge in Shrewsbury. The area is gloriously down at heel, deprived of funding and support and decidedly off the tourist map, but businesses there have developed a fierce sense of independence and a valid claim to be Shrewsbury’s Cool Creative Quarter.

Mavic Pro Photographers Review

We have been using a DJI Phantom 4 Pro for video and photography work since 2017 and it has worked out exceptionally well. The picture quality of both video and stills is amazing and we have been very impressed by the stability and maneuverability of the platform.

Ageing Gracefully

Ageing Gracefully is a project by photographer Chris Wright. The project was created in collaboration with Age UK.

The inspiration for the project is Chris's recognition that photography of the aged tends to either patronise or isolate.

Innovative Marketing for Property

Innovative marketing in the Property market was probably most notable back in 2000 with the widespread takeup of the internet as the primary marketing channel.

Since that breakthrough we've seen a little incremental change, e.g. HDR photography, but little to suggest the industry is about to reinvent itself. Yet looking to America, the industry is being quietly revolutionised, driven by a trend of remote purchasing. VR Technology such as Virtual Tours have facilitated the process by offering the buyer a much more realistic impression of the property than can be given by photographs and videos alone. Read more

Photography, Video & GDPR

Photography, Video & GDPR or the General Data Protection Regulation are explicitly linked as the GDPR treats certain images as an extension of the data that Photographers and Videographers keep about their clients. If you're reaction to this is "so what?", then you need to know that GDPR becomes law on 25 May 2018, and supersedes the UK Data Protection Act of 1998. Read more

Interactive Web Promo with Adobe Spark

This isn't the first one we've created, back in the days of Adobe slate we created one to promote a holiday cottage in Spain that was very well received, but for some reason we've never repeated the exercise for our product photography studio in Shrewsbury. Which is a bit bonkers really! Read more

360° Panoramas & Virtual Tours

This peculiar photograph is a flattened version of a 360° Panorama I created today of our studio. 360° Panoramas & Virtual Tours are very big in Europe and America right now and we think that with recent improvements to the UK's Broadband Infrastructure that the time may be right to investigate this branch of photography/video further.

How to Shoot Whisky on a White Background

Learning how to shoot whisky on a white background requires an appreciation of physics (light), aesthetics (look and feel) and technology (lenses, depth of field, post processing).

Light

A photograph records the light returned or reflected from an object. Light travels in straight lines (more or less) and can be modified in a number of different ways. It can be reflected, diffused, polarised etc. Read more
