Honey Studio Product Photography

Last week I had the pleasure of photographing more stationery for the lovely owner of The Honey Studio. She has just created a new range of products specifically for children and asked if I could take some new pictures for her website. Photographing products in the comfort of my own studio is definitely one of my favourite parts of my job as I get the freedom to style and be as creative as I like and I also find it quite relaxing! I had a lot of fun with these and here are the results. I really enjoyed photographing these cute designs and if you have something similar that you’d… Read More

Stock Photography – Keeping It Simple

Todays blog is all about stock photography and a few tips on how to create the perfect image. I’ve been a member of the free stock photography site Pexels for over a year now and I absolutely love coming up with new ideas and scenes to create the ideal images. This week my theme has been ” Keeping it Simple ” and for me that means the less clutter, the better! White backgrounds are really in at the moment and there are a lot of searches for images with a minimalistic style. The white space gives designers and bloggers enough room to add some text. So find yourself a white… Read More

Digital Illustrations

As you may know my main passion in life is photography! I love capturing the moment, meeting new clients and expressing myself through my work. But I also like to draw whenever I have some free time. I’ve recently become unwell, so not being able to go out and take pictures has been a bit frustrating for me… and there is only so much indoor photography I can do. To pass the time I decided to dabble in Photoshop to create some cute illustrations. I have been a complete novice in the past when it comes to digital drawings but I wanted to set myself a challenge. The japanese style… Read More

Yugen Coffee House

A few months ago we ( Indever ) were contacted by Sono and Gavin who were looking for help to create a website for their new Coffee shop in Bangor. They also wanted professional photos to help bring their brand to life and to give people a real look at what they had to offer. I love food photography so I couldn’t wait to get started…. Here are just a few of my favourite shots from the photography shoot. They have a variety of items on offer and they’re all healthy and tasty! They’re also the only coffee shop in North Wales who use Allpress speciality coffee beans, which come… Read More

Sychnant Pass Photography

Saturday came around quick, once again! And as always it was time to decide what to do. After working hard in the office all week, it’s nice to have a change of atmosphere and do a bit of exploring, so we decided to head over to Conwy and take it from there. Before even considering going for a walk me and Mr. Fotios always have to stop off somewhere for a coffee first! As you can see I didn’t get a picture of our coffees, so here are some coffee beans that I recently purchased instead! 😛 Once we finished our drinks we hopped back in the car and did… Read More

Feeling Fruity

There are some weekends where even if I try to relax, I can’t and even when it’s cold outside and pouring down with rain I can’t help but want to take pictures. The solution for not wanting a wet & damaged camera? Indoor photography!! Although, it can be difficult to find things to photograph. But then I remembered that I had some tasty fruit in the fridge, so I decided to experiment. I’d recently brought one of my photography lamps home from the office and this was perfect for setting the ideal lighting as my flat can be quite dark. When it comes to photographing anything up close I always… Read More

Conwy Food And Drink Celebration At Bodnant Welsh Food Centre

November is Conwy business month and to kick off the celebration of local businesses their first event was in celebration of Conwy food and drink vendors. The event was set up in the fantastic setting of Bodnant Welsh Food Centre and all local food producers were welcome guests. I was asked by the council to come and photograph the event and of course I wasn’t going to say no because (A) I love food and (B) I always want to support and capture our community spirit. The event provided the opportunity to highlight, showcase, and celebrate Conwy Food and Drink, but it was also an opportunity for producers to engage,… Read More

North Wales Sunsets

For me there is no better time to take a picture than in the evening, North Wales is stunning already! But, when you capture the sun going down on top of a mountain or on one of our many beaches the views are breath-taking. I’ve taken many pictures of sunsets over time but, here are just a few that I have taken as recently as yesterday evening. West Shore Beach, Llandudno, Nikon D5500, 35mm Prime Lens Silhouettes, West Shore Beach, Llandudno, Nikon D5500, 35mm Prime Lens Sheep On Top Of Deganwy Mountain, Nikon D5500, 18-140mm Lens Looking towards LLandudno, Nikon D5500, 18-140mm Lens More Sheep, Deganwy Mountain, Nikon D5500, 18-140mm… Read More

The Top 3 Things To Consider When Choosing Photos For Your Website

When creating a website, photography is often the last thing people think about. Photography can make or break a user’s perception of the website and ultimately your brand. It is worthwhile putting the effort in to get it right, visitors to your website will look at the pictures before reading the text. 1. Avoid overusing stock photos Stock photos are fine in small quantities. They are ideal if you are blogging regularly, but for the main pages on your website (Home, Services etc) you’ll want real pictures of your business, products and services that represent who you are what you do. WORST OFFENDERS: Smiling models (solo, groups, meetings etc). Generic handshakes (close ups).… Read More

The Little Orme

One of the great things about living and working in North Wales is that you get to visit places like The Little Orme! I mean how lucky are we that these spectacular places are right on our doorstep? Some people would travel for miles just to spend a few hours here! So, I’m very grateful to live so close to the coast and inland and can enjoy the best of both worlds. I am also very lucky being a photographer in this awesome part of the world. As well as being lovely to look at The Little Orme also has quite the history so, here’s a little about it from… Read More
