Italian Stock Photo Shoot

It’s a hard life sometimes…

We’ve recently returned from an intensive eight day trip to shoot stock photos in three Italian cities.  The heat was incredible (usually around 37C), particularly for two pale English photographers who think that it’s hot when we have to take our cardigans off.

But, we endured it, for the sake of our art!

The quality of the light, and locations, was outstanding – with beautiful images just waiting to be created at every turn.

We did our research before travelling, and had ‘key’ shots in mind before we even left the dampness of the UK.  But with some of the most iconic art, sculpture and architecture within Europe, we shot far more than we ever imagined.

Overall, we’ve added around 900 images to our photo library – all available to licence for commercial applications or as fine art prints to decorate your home or office walls. (see links below).

Time… it’s what we try to capture!

It’s an impossible task – time just can’t be ‘trapped’ ‘tamed’ or ‘captured’ – but it’s what we try to do every day, in our studio when we take portraits, or out on location trying to capture a fleeting moment when the ‘light’ is just right.

One of the best ways to capture time is a timelapse video – hours and hours of still images stitched together to form a video sequence that lasts for a matter of seconds.  They take time to produce, but the results can be mesmerising.

Our latest time lapse sequence was shot around London and includes some favourite landmarks: Tower Bridge, The Shard, Canary Wharf, The London Eye, and the Millennium Bridge.  Hope you enjoy it…

Video based marketing is big at the moment, and is destined to become BIGGER by the people who know. Google, and YouTUBE, are the biggest two search engines on the planet, and if they love video, then you probably should too.

A well produced professional corporate video on your website will improve your web hits, and lead to more business.  Unfortunately, the internet is awash with badly produced videos shot on mobile phones and webcams. This is not the way to promote your business!  It doesn’t matter whether you’re using still – or moving – pictures, the principles remain the same: Good lighting, good composition, and top quality production, are all needed to present a professional image for your business.
