Business Headshot with a difference.... by John Wellings

I was in Cardiff this morning to photograph some business headshots when I was asked if I minded taking a quick portrait of this guy. Its not my usual sort of thing but I quite like it!

I don’t think i want to work with dogs all the time though, I think I just got lucky that he looked down the lens, he only did it once!

Commercial Photographer South Wales: Business Portraits for Aareon by John Wellings

A couple of images from a recent shoot for Aareon at their office in Swansea.

The typical welsh winter weather coming in to play meant we were forced to use a rather beige office as the location. Fortunately we were able to cover a wall with some posters to achieve the colourful background the client was looking for.

Recent Work for Waitrose Weekend Magazine by John Wellings

I've had a couple of fun shoots recently for Waitrose Weekend Magazine. The first being sand yachter, Andrew Parr down on Pembrey sands. This was a really windy day down on the beach, my light stands were barely able to stand even weighed down!

The second shoot was deep in rural Wales with Scything Instructor, Phil Batten. My take away from this shoot was the horsefly bite which I suffered 30 seconds into begining the shoot which then caused my arm to swell twice its normal size. I wont be forgetting that one in a hurry!

Shooting for yourself? by John Wellings

Whenever I can I try and shoot something just for myself when I'm working. Whether thats an unusual scene or some nice light like the photo below.

 Now some say you should always shoot for yourself, and while I agree to an extent, I also think there wouldn't have been a place for an image like this on the job I was commissioned for...interested to know what others think?

Editorial Photographer Wales: FGS Tool for Wirtschafts Woche by John Wellings

I shot these portraits of Gareth Jenkins of FGS Tool for the German economic magazine Wirtschafts Woche back in June but I've been a little slow (a bit?!) on updating this blog.....

 

Recently published: Financial Times and Trading Standards Review by John Wellings

A couple of recent commissions have just been published which I can now share with you.

 I was asked by the FT to head up to Mid Wales to photograph William Watkins, the founder of Radnor Hills to go along with a recent interview for the Money FT section. The drive up was pretty awful with heavy rain that didn't let up for the whole day, scuppering my plans for a portrait out on the farm....

I was also really happy to shoot for the recently launched journal for trading standards, TS Review. Always nice to have images over a number of pages and I'm pretty happy with the ones chosen for the article.

Here are the tearsheets and also a few out takes from the shoots.
