Photography for online auctions

I was asked to photograph a second hand watch to be listed on a luxury watch auction site. The watch has never been worn so the plastic protective cover was still over the face and buckle of the watch. The vendor wanted to keep these in place so that any buyer can clearly see that the watch has never been worn.

Self Portrait

I always test the lighting set up on myself before I see a client, this morning I was setting up for two clients coming in for a portrait shoot. This image is taken from one of my test shots whilst tweaking the lighting…

My first time lapse

Lock down means I can only do product photography but no shoots involving people. I have decided to learn a new skill which I will be able to use with my product but also landscapes. This is my first attempt, its not perfect but it meant I could learn from my mistakes I also learnt to stay patient and always take a flask and chocolate! This is made from 301 single photographs taken over 24 minutes.

Brighton in the Autumn

A couple of days away by the sea was the perfect way to recharge in the middle of a pandemic! I’ve always liked taking pics of old sea side towns in the winter and have a soft spot for Brighton and the Sussex coast.

The Scallop at Aldeburgh

Is one of my favourite sculptures, designed by local artist Maggi Hambling dedicated to Benjamin Britten (composer who spent much of his life in Aldeburgh). It stands approx 15 feet high and can be found on the beach just up from Aldeburgh town. I love how the light changes how it looks, how clouds can darken the shadows and the sun can make the surface glimmer. As I stood setting up my camera children scurried and peaked out from under it, couples leaned up to take a selfie against it and families gathered around it.
