Being a freelance photographer my role often involves photographing events that companies would like images of for social media, website and other marketing purposes. The National Lottery Community Fund works with so many charities and organisations across the UK, and to show customers who play the lottery where the funds go, they require photos like the ones I've taken below. It's important to shoot in a documentary style and show the natural interactions between the people involved.
The first even below was at the YMCA My Space in Rotherham. Which provides activities and services for the area's youth. Another was with Volunteer It Yourself at the Guisborough Rugby Club. VIY works with young people who volunteer for DIY projects in their community to learn valuable skills they can use for future employment. Working as a freelance commercial photographer for TNLC has been a great experience and I can't wait to work with them again soon.
Professional photography will set an estate agency apart from the competition. It also portrays a more accurate representation of the home for sale. Bringing out the best aspects of each room. Not to mention showing off the exterior photos of the house or property and adding a blue sky if needed. Let's face it, English weather is unpredictable and even sunny days can end up grey during the scheduled photoshoot appointment.
Working with RF&O Sales, I've had the pleasure of photographing some of their listings in the Swanwick and surround areas such as Ripley and Matlock. Below I'll be posting a small selection of photos I've worked with RF&O on. Go take a peek.
Unit Sheffield is a North American style restaurant with giant burgers and chocolate covered desserts. Or puddings as we'd say here in England. They even sell Mexican sodas as you'll see in the photographs below.
The goal of the food photography shoot, was to photograph each item in a variety of ways for use on social media. Such as instagram. A restaurant may want to feature a speciality burger for instance, many times. But doesn't want to bore potential clients with the same photograph. Therefore, having a handful of images of that speciality burger is essential. Speaking of burgers, check out the images below.
