During 2011 and 2012 I worked for an organisation called the Public Catalogue Foundation more commonly called The PCF. The Public Catalogue Foundation is a registered charity set up to create a complete record of the United Kingdom’s national collection of oil, tempera and acrylic paintings and make this accessible to the public.
I covered South, Mid and West Wales, but I ended up having to go a little further afield on a few occasions to Llandudno and Anglesey So I covered pretty much all of wales.
It was a fantastic project to have been involved in, I was lucky enough to visit some beautiful locations all over Wales and meet some great people along the way.
My role as a photographer was to capture images of the paintings to highest standard possible. Using a myriad of ingenious lighting techniques on some occasions to exclude reflections on some awkwardly positioned paintings. It really was quite a challenging and rewarding job.
