About – Adrian Buck
Growing up in a Norfolk seaside resort, it was hardly surprising my first paid photography work would be on a holiday park. Today the opportunities to make a photographic hobby pay, as I was when snapping tourists in my teens, are as abundant as the technical and creative developments now available to aspiring photographers.
Versatility always seemed like a good attribute to have. A good travel photographer would may need to be a portrait, architectural landscape, events and still-life photographer all in one. Press photography too often requires a multi-genre attitude and should be admired for that. So I would approach all photo jobs with equal enthusiasm – and still do.
I currently provide commercial, editorial and PR photography to businesses and organisations in Great Yarmouth, Norwich, Lowestoft and throughout Norfolk, Suffolk and East Anglia. Shooting for graphics companies, press agencies, national PR agencies and stock libraries, my work has been published in books, magazines and newspapers, both online and in print around the world.
While I serve a wide mix of corporate and editorial markets I still provide a portrait service to individuals, whether these be promotional shots for actors, dancers and musicians or portfolio shoots for models. Concept portraits for publicity or art projects are also an offset of this and I love any opportunity to explore a narrative style of portrait.
Film making and videography is a new addition to my skillset and comes on the back of a long time passion for the medium as a communication tool. There will be a new page here in the coming months devoted to video and film making projects.
One or two examples appear on my personal You Tube channel but this is not (yet) intended a showcase of commisioned work, more a practise ‘play-around’ platform and much of my pro video work will not appear here. I have included one commissioned film, Centre 81 – Opportunity for Everyone, required for a national conference on community healthcare.
A production on which I only contributed but which I am able to link here is the insightful documentary Gerry Anderson – His Alzheimer’s Story about the iconic film maker and producer Gerry Anderson and his struggle with Alzheimer’s.
Other than commissions I am always interested to hear from individuals wanting to collaborate on projects.
