Michael Jones Q.C for the FDA

In the run up to Christmas I was commissioned to take a portrait of Michael Jones Q.C for the FDA. The brief was some relaxed environmental portraits along with an establishing shot of the Welsh Assembly Senedd building in Cardiff bay.

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?

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.
