I was commissioned by Morrison’s to photograph the delivery of transformer at the new Swansea sub station. The day involved rocking up at the Swansea docks at stupid o’clock in the morning as this huge piece of equipment was being transported on a special trailer which has two tractor units with independent steering at each end. A most impressive piece of kit in its own right. As the top speed was around walking pace (thats what I was told by my client) it was going to cause some potential mayhem on the roads of Swansea hence the early start to ensure the least impact on the surrounding traffic.
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.
Below is a typical setup in the Chapel at the Carmarthen Museum.
Well not technically true. These photographs were taken back in Freezing February. My dear wife and her friends wanted some photographs together with the Bump. So we took a casual stroll down to the park and once suitably freezing we congregated at our house for tea and cakes. I love cakes mmmm. Anyway here’s a few pictures from the day.
I have recently completed a commission to photograph John Lewis building in Cardiff and the National Pool in Cardiff for a local company Auxilium who were integral in producing the drawings and 3D models used to construct the building. The brief was to show the buildings in a more dynamic nature than had previously been captured by the contractor.
