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.....


Business Headshots by John Wellings

From a recent shoot for Swansea based independent financial advisor firm, Distinct Financial Solutions for their new website and branding. 

The company wanted to show a more relaxed and personable side rather than keeping everything too formal which I think we achieved well.

If you are looking for stand out business and corporate headshots for your team then please get in touch. I can bring a studio along to your office and we can work together to create some great images of your team.

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.

Great British Dog Walk - Rhossili Bay by John Wellings

I photographed the Rhossili leg of the Great British Dog Walk for the charity Hearing Dogs ( last weekend, here are a few of my favourite images from the sunny morning.

I've got a few other shoots that I'm waiting to post about, I'm trying to not neglect this space, too much!


Corporate Photography by John Wellings

As I'm sat in the studio editing images from a corporate photography shoot in Cardiff last week I wanted to share a couple of images with you.

Sometimes the strange lighting that emits from projections can be very frustrating, but in this case I see it as more of a gift. i really like the subtle light on landing on the speakers, using the blind in the room as a background,  a nice effect I think.

Band Shoot: The Weekenders by John Wellings

I made the short trip up the M4 to Newport on a soaking wet and cold Sunday morning to photograph a new local band. As I'm not too familiar with good shooting locations in Newport I left it up to the guys in the band to come up with something.

I was pretty relieved when it turned out to be in cover from the relentless rain. We managed to get a few different looks in a short space of time before it got too cold and miserable to spend any longer outside.

David Cameron by John Wellings

I was on assignment yesterday to photograph David Cameron delivering his speech at the Welsh Conservative Party conference.

I always try to shoot a little something for myself after I make the 'safe' shots so once I had delivered my images to the client and got back home I had a play with a few of the out takes.

Here are a few of those, have a great weekend!

Band Photography by John Wellings

A few weeks ago I hooked up with the awesome band Broken Fires to shoot some fresh promo images to go with the release of their new album.

We spent a pretty chilly hour under the M4 and came away with some cool images. I'm available for band promo photography all over South Wales. Rates start from as little as £75.00 for unsigned bands.

We can go to your choice of location, or I could bring a studio setup to you, drop me a line and we can have a chat about it.

New Portrait by John Wellings

I had the help of a friend of mine last week in doing some light tests at home. Geesy was a true gent and sat for me while I hacked around and realised I could probably do with a) more space and b) some different light mods.

We managed to get a few nice images though, one of which is here. I'll post any more over at my tumblr page which you can get to by clicking here or at the "Recent" link in the menu above.

I've also got a few prints for sale at the moment, if you'd like something different to what I have listed please shoot me an email and I'll see what I can do. 

Here is the print sale:
