Commercial and PR Photography

Whether for internal relations or a wider audience, pictures can get the message across so much more quickly than words alone. No press release should be without them.

Press, brochure photography, marketing or advertising campaigns, I am used to working closely with businesses and agencies in achieving the best results with the minimal inconvenience to client operations.

 

Editorial & Corporate Portraits

The business or corporate portrait is an essential visual tool for both small and large companies.

Editorial environmental portraits of key personnel can be especially effective in portraying the ‘human face’ of large companies and emphasizing the value held for skilled personnel at any level of a company’s operations.

 

Portraits for press-releases, company websites, editorial features or wall display can be shot on-site with minimal disruption to business. Formal or reportage in style, the duration of photo shoots really depends on the results you are after.

I now provide studio shoots locally, suitable for full-lengths lit with light or dark backgrounds as preferred. Head & shoulder shots against white background can be shot either in this studio or on client’s own premises.

 

Publicity & Conceptual Portraits

Photo shoots for models, musicians, actors, vocalists, dancers and other performing artists. Headshots to full-lengths, location or white background studio, all needs catered. Can enlists hairstylist and make-up artist at cost if required.

Product / Pack Shots

Product photography for online or printed catalogues can be provided on clean white (or other) background. Images are edited and ‘cleaned up’ as necessary so will be ready to use.

Property & Architectural Photography

I regularly shoot commercial buildings and holiday let premises and occasionally exclusive residential properties. My images are used for auction websites or holiday listing sites, also brochures and large format displays.

Depending on number of rooms and client requirements a single property can take anything from 45 minutes to half a day. Outside only views of commercial premises for sale ideally need to be shot at busy times. All images supplied via download.

Medico-Legal Photography

I have been providing legal photography for a number of years, usually to support injury claims and images are most commonly needed of residual scarring some time after an accident.  I can also supply images or video to help illustrate a set of conditions which may have contributed to an accident or other incident.

Image Licensing Terms

Where photography is paid per hour, images are licensed as ‘Royalty Free’ to customers for uses relating solely to the promotion or/and marketing of their business, products and services or/and their specified client’s business, products or services.

Pay-per-image jobs where individual license fees are paid per image, unlimited usage is licensed for those purposes described by client.  Other usage, not originally agreed, is negotiable as is purchase of full copyright.

The customer’s needs are always my primary concern and these terms do not compromise my aim to deliver an exclusive image package for sole commercial use by the commissioning client. I do however reserve the right to reproduce pictures in my printed and digital promotional materials.

Occasionally, after a reasonable exclusivity period, some images (though not those of a sensitive nature or including non-released models under 18) may be placed with a library for restricted editorial usage in books or magazines or other non-commercial media.  Greater exclusivity is available at a slight premium on above rates.

Unless otherwise agreed I retain full copyright on all images.  All enquiries to Adrian Buck
