April A Month On The Road

April 2021 continued like last year but with a slightly bigger bang.
I had started a contract last year shooting for a holiday company capturing holiday cottages and other holiday accommodation for the homestay holiday market.

Ironically the travel industry is one of those hardest hit by the Covid pandemic yet this provided the homestay U.K market with a huge boost for demand.

The past 4 weeks have turned out to be been very busy with me clocking up well over 2 thousand miles on my travels and shooting huge amounts of images.
In between, I’ve also been busy finishing off a video production for another client so juggling the two has been at times interesting!

I’m looking as we all are to the better weather as we move into May (hopefully) and exploring more beautiful countryside and beaches that the South West of England offers in abundance.

Here are a few images I’ve grabbed on my travels.

Papilio portraits and kitchen interior photography

I’m generally not known as an interior photographer or for doing kitchen photography but like most photographic genres I’ve probably at some point done it but just don’t advertise or claim to specialise in it.
In the case of Interior Design company Papilo they contacted me as they required some tricky interiors photographing and knew with my image retouching services and knowledge I could possibly help capture what they required.
Steve & Matt Papilo’s directors also explained they needed some corporate portraits that also would showcase their interior design style at the same time.

The idea for the portraits was pretty much dictated by the location so we finalised everything on the day of the shoot.
I decided once I had seen the interior that the approach should be a composite image to allow for maximum flexibility.

The shoot went without any issues and so with time to spare decided on another alternative both shown below.

For the interiors, we planned to capture the rooms when the exterior ambient light was at the correct angle and intensity.
This was to allow enough daylight to illuminate albeit very dimly through any visible windows.

Capturing all of the lighting intensities and dark surfaces required some care shooting and time to produce in post-production but I’m pleased to say Papilio were very happy with the results.
