Nottingham Commercial Photography for Second Element

Nottingham commercial photography here from a recent commission for Second Element who are specialists in Legionella control and plumbing as well providing their self explanatory Drain Rescue service. Director, Richard Danielson took some ‘behind the scenes’ shots as we illustrated the team at work in various scenarios. The employee in the shot below even found himself company poster-boy (literally) when featured over Nottingham’s buses as part of their advertising campaign. Find more on Second Element here and more Michael Powell commercial photography here. Scroll down to see some environmental and editorial style portraits using some of the off-camera lighting techniques I sometimes employ when shooting for magazines and newspapers, such as this of Leicester City striker Shinji Okazaki for The Sunday Times.

Di & Andy’s RAF Cranwell Wedding

Congratulations Di & Andy. Unusually, this was a day off from being the official photographer as I was a guest but I still took a camera along to this superb RAF Cranwell wedding in Lincolnshire followed by the reception at Charlotte House in Lincoln. Working with just one camera and one prime lens, a Canon 85mm f1.8 is an interesting discipline. If you call discipline taking a few pictures between drinks, chatting, eating and dancing. Most of these were shot ‘wide-open’ to keep the depth of field very shallow. Normally with quite heavy, overcast light like this I’d be filling-in the shadows with flash, particularly under hats but didn’t want to carry one so just continued with available light including Andy’s star turn with the band later in the evening.

Lincolnshire Garden Marquee Wedding Photography

Lincolnshire Garden Marquee Wedding Photography Here are a few photographs from Alice and Alistair’s stunning wedding starting with the getting ready and finishing with some impressive dance moves. The flowers by Poppy Vincent were magnificent as was food by Winteringham Fields which even featured an outside cookery demonstration area and oyster bar. Alice & Alistair’s wedding broke the previous record for most pictures I have shot at a wedding, a staggering 2743 frames and in doing so took the honour from the legendary wedding in Curitiba, Brazil of Ricardo & Paula (which I left at 5am with party still in full flow).
