  • Ragley Grand Hall

    Ragley Grand Hall

    Set for Wedding -using portable flash with daylight as well as specialist shift / tilt lens captures large interiors and small with great quality. The technical requirements for an Architectural photographer have changed, pre digital you required a 4 x 5 camera with shift & tilt movements, I used a Sinar in the studio, but on location I would use Linhofs as they were designed for portability. This image was shot with a Nikon D850 and a Shift /Tilt 24mm , my lens of choice for Architecture ,interiors and exteriors.

    Ladies Day-from a personal project 'A day at the Races' exploring tribal identity. This approach works for commercial clients when marketing destinations. Advertising reportage is a description I use ,when subjects seem unaware of a camera , the images communicate that the image is real.

Photographer for tourism and hospitality destinations and attractions .

Destination, attractions, lifestyle,portrait and landscape photographer in Warwickshire, West Midlands, Coventry the Cotswolds & beyond.

Photographer for tourism and Hospitality attractions and destinations.

Photography & video for the Hospitality & tourism sector across Warwickshire, West Midlands, Coventry & the Cotswolds.

Since 1988 I have worked for the Tourism and the Hospitality industry, internationally and across the UK. Holiday brochures, advertising campaigns and editorial image banks that were commissioned by tourism boards and travel organisations.

It is a sector I love and continue to be very involved with, as a member of Shakespeare's England and as a passionate ambassador for the travel and tourism industry.

Now in 2020 the world sadly has been hit with the Coronavirus pandemic and all Hospitality and tourism has been drastically effected, however after the world recovers there change to tourism shall see a massive reduction in international travel & tourism, but staycations and the appreciation of the local to the UK destinations shall be hopefully renewed and a revival shall occur. I hope I can play my part with that revival as website require fresh images and locations require images for update and promotion across all media.

If you require images for your websites and social media, I shall be making my extensive stock available at very generous discounts and will try to help with the rebuilding of the industry that makes such a great contribution to the UK economy.
