  • Venue Photography - at the Birmingham Botanical gardens .

    Venue Photography - at the Birmingham Botanical gardens .

    A venue may have many setups and be used for a variety of clients,from corporate to wedding . I try to capture the professional qualities that the venue has. Often using techniques such as blurred personel .This implies speed and efficency and of course service ,a key aspect of the hospitality industry .Again using specialist lighting and lens , this technique is subtle but it is understood by those key decision makers who will see many alternative venues and visit many websites. This is why as a venue you must use professional photographers that produce the quality that a discerning audience will appreciate .

I never drink when I'm a photographer but when I'm finished and not driving ,my drink of choice when here is a Pint (or two) of OldHooky !

    A limited focus image that provides a 'feel' of the location and provides a visual commuication that indicates the location is not a Hotel or Venue - the green background was employed in many of the images shot for this commission. Using a macro Shift / tilt lens,that is usually used for Macro photography . I use this specialist equipment on many projects and is a useful but expensive piece of quality glass . Technical Details : Nikon D810 - Nikkor 85mm f3.5 S/T lens .

    Food photography shot in the cafe area ,having the old tabletop ensures that the food looks like it was produced in house rather than a stock image that many venues may use.

    Food Photographer

    Photographed at the No 9 restaurant in Stratford upon Avon. My background with Food Photography goes back to my days as a student when one day a week I was able to study at the studio of Cadbury's in Bourneville, Birmingham. It was there that I was able to learn my still life and food photography craft from Masters . It was a possible career path as I love food and photographing its preparation and then capturing the creations of great chefs and food stylists,always a pleasure. During my career I have shot editorial food photography as well as advertising with food as part of the brief ,

    No 9

    Restaurant in Stratford upon Avon, Wayne Thomson Chef & Patron is one of the midlands if not the UK's finest - IMHO. In the Kitchen at No 9 the great masterpieces are created in this creative hub.The technique of using mono and colour photography mix is a useful tool to highlight the food and retain the enviroment of a kitchen that are often cluttered and distracting .
