Cheers for asking me along. I must remember to take my brolley for future outdoor shoots.

Here’s some of my favourite images…

Commercial headshots & portraits: Rebecca Caslin & Not Just Scribbles

Today we have Rebecca Caslin business owner at Not Just Scribbles. Rebecca runs a successful graphic design business from Little Sutton.

Beki’s business can be found on all the major social media platforms where it’s not enough nowadays to just have a formal corporate headshot. She wanted a variation of images showing her professional side and lifestyle side . Here’s Beki’s thoughts on her images:-

corporate-headshots

“Ray is a pleasure to work with, I hate having my picture taken but he instantly put me at ease. His relaxed style is perfect for the shots I needed for my business, offering a different take on the traditional headshot.

He went out of his way to make it a fun experience and I loved being able to have my dog with me (my co-worker!).

I was also impressed with the amount of shots I had to choose from. I would definitely recommend Ray for any of your photographic needs.

Commercial Photography: Bonfire Night at The Swan, Marbury

commercial-photographer

I had so much fun recently capturing the goings on at The Swan, Marbury. Lindsay (Operations Manager), a while back, messaged me about capturing happenings at the bonfire, the atmosphere in the pub, the kitchen, interior, etc.

Lots of low light photography with high ISO’s were required and the light began to fade. My favourite shots:-

Commercial headshots: Tony Mazzotti - Business Growth Specialist

Tony Mazzotti - Business Growth Specialist

Recently I’ve been getting back into doing corporate headshots but with a difference.

I met Tony Mazzotti, Business Growth Specialist, a while back when I first started to network in Wrexham. Tony wanted to update his professional images and turned to me to help.

From the city of Chester, it was important to Tony to have his photos taken in the city. Tony hired me for an hour as we walked around lots of different locations in the city.

It’s not enough nowadays to just have formal headshots with dark or light background. Lots of my clients want to show not just their professional side but the human/caring side of their personality!

Here are a few images from the shoot….

Commercial photographer Raymond Jones Images and Tweedmill Textiles

It was wonderful when I received an email from Jayne, Tweedmill Textiles asking me to call in to discuss their requirements of lifestyle images for their autumn/winter catalogue 2018.  They reviewed my portfolio and were impressed by my interiors and food imagery.

This was just up my street.  I visited the team, got the job and the below images show the images I produced for them.  I managed to take over 2,00 images.  Locations were Telacre Beach, Flint Castle and the hills in North Wales.

Enjoy...

Commercial & Wedding Photographer: the reason

Just to clarify my business.  I'm a wedding and commercial photographer.  Weddings are seasonal and mainly held during the summer.  However, my commercial photography keeps me busy all year round.

Just a clarification I thought you should know.

Happy Friday.

 

 

North Wales & Cheshire Wedding Photographer: Carla & Ben, Plas Isaf

I've been lucky this year with the weather photographing weddings.  It's been an unusual summer with hot sunshine for most of it.

We met a couple of months on a cold winter's morning and it was hard to visualise their wedding with different weather but it was different.  Warm, sultry and so romantic.

Such a fun couple and their wedding reflected this.

Here's a few images from Carla and Ben's wonderful wedding at the gorgeous Plas Isaf in Corwen.

Commercial photographer: Almost time to open The Swan, Marbury

I started to photograph The Swan, Marbury almost 2 years ago for Pubs Ltd and Jerry Brunning (Brunning & Price).  Jerry wanted a record of the project from the start to the finish to show customers in an album and on a iPad.  It was such a thrill to be asked to do this for Jerry.  The guy who created the 'gastro pub look'.  

I was in a great position in that I seen the project from start to finish.  A few images from February earlier this year.  I'll be following this blog with another showing the completed Swan at Marbury...

Raymond Jones Commercial & Corporate Photographer

At last I have a few minutes spare to do a little blog post of recent business activities with Raymond Jones Images.  I will try keep this blog up to date but then again I won't make any promises if you know what I mean.

The corporate/commercial side of my photography is expanding in a way that I thought it never would.  I've been documenting and photographing, over the last two years, The Swan, Marbury for Pubs limited.  Thoroughly enjoyable seeing and photographing this pub from start to the present.   The new look Swan is almost complete.  I've also been working with self caterers, including chefs pubs and great venues like Holt Lodge, The Millstone,  Pubs Ltd, etc.  Corporate head shots, interior and exterior of businesses and their products, especially food.

Some images for you to see.  Should you require my services, please get in touch.  I'm very competitive and will beat any competitor in the area.

North Wales Photographer: The photographic print will never fade away...

I recently completed putting together the most amazing album for a client.  We both opened the box that the album came in.  It was a nerve racking moment.  As we opened the packaging we were thrilled by the feel and look of the album.  The way the light bounced off the glossy pages and the velvet introductory page!

In this world of digital technology, moments like this never happen.  I'm currently adding to all my portrait shoots 6 free 7 x 5 prints so you can feel and see the prints and get an experience you can't get on your iPhone or laptop!
