Wedding at Aston Villa
Wedding at Aston Villa
If you are thinking of having your Wedding at Aston Villa, and are looking for photography and cinematography, consider our team.
We covered the beautiful wedding at Aston Villa of J&A, in the main Holte Suite, with photos at Aston Hall across the road.
At day that started at 10am and ended a little after 10pm.
We started with bridal preps at the house.
Then moved onto The beautiful Church of St John and St Peter’s a hidden away gem in Ladyhood, Birmingham, with many of the features people look for in a church to get married in. A long aisle, big stained glass windows at the alter and Ministers that understand the importance of photography in this special moment for the couple.
When you have a Wedding at Aston Villa or Villa Park as it is known to some, the steps leading to the stalls is an ideal place to have a group photo where all your guests can easily been seen, and the tiers will hold big groups of people.
When you hold your wedding at Aston Villa, Aston Hall is right across the road, and ideal for your couples and bridal shots images.
We ended the day with reception games, and of course the party … which the bride took very seriously …
When we cover your event, we provide true all day coverage. We tend not to miss out bits that some other photographers do when they leave early, after a mock cutting of the cake. We cover the emotion, the love, the fun and the people. Everything you want to remember for years to come.

Commercial Business Photography in Birmingham – Advertising Billboards
Commercial Business Photography in Birmingham
If you are in need of Commercial Business Photography in Birmingham look no further than Lensi.
We were commissioned by The New Alexander Theatre in Birmingham to produce images that would be used to advertise their Footloose Theatre Production Footloose, for those that remember it is the 1980’s film classic starring Kevin Bacon. So we had a lot to live up to.
We storyboarded the shoot from scenes in the movie, and came up with this :behind the scenes video commercial for the Footloose Production Poster for Alexander Theatre
Posters were displayed on billboards and street panels across the Midlands, as well as at the Alexander Theatre leading up to the show. As we did the Commercial Business Photography in Birmingham before the show was even cast, we had a brief to keep the posters as generic as possible, so that they could look as though any actor or actress could be in them.
We worked alongside the Theatre marketing department to storyboard outfits that would match the film, come out under budget and but again be generic enough to appeal to a wide market. This is what we came up with for the Commercial Business Photography in Birmingham for the Alexander Theatre.

Event Photography – Networking Meeting
Lensi Photography is a group of Professional Photographers that cover events and commercial photography such as this commission for Event Photography for The In Touch With Walsall Networking Group.
Networking Groups such as BNI, In touch With, 4 Networking and so on are big business. Various businesses come together in regular meetings and basically pass business between each other.
Members pay an annual or monthly fee to be part of the network, and this is how the businesses work.
Where many of these Networking groups fall short however, is with the imagery of their networking. Many do not invest in a photographer to provide professional event photography, and make do with phone snaps from most events.
Sometimes companies forget that imagery is an important part of your brand. In Touch With Walsall contacted us to photograph one of their business networking meetings at Walsall Council House in Walsall. We provided roaming photography that captured the essence of what In Touch With Walsall was all about.
This is what we came up with.
If you would like a quote for professional event photography of your business networking meeting in Birmingham, Wolverhampton, Walsall, Sandwell or Dudley or even other parts of the UK or Internationally, contact us for a quote.

Commercial Photography in Birmingham – Brewers Fayre
Commercial Photography in Birmingham provided by Lensi Photography.
COMMERCIAL PHOTOGRAPHY in Birmingham for BREWERS FAYRE
When we go a restaurant or pub or any other chain venue we rarely think about the photography that sells the food, drink, and establishment to us.
This is some that said Photography. Commercial Photography for the Pub chain Brewers Fayre to launch their new children’s play area with the Comic Character Dennis the Menace.
This type of commercial photography covered particular aspects of images that were needed for marking. Images of the building and grounds its, photographs of children enjoying the play area and menu, photography of Dennie the Menace with children in the play area and staff at the restaurant and play area.
Each of these images will be used commercially for the restaurant. So next time you sit in a Brewers Fayre looking at images on the walls or in the menu, they may just be some taken by Lensi Photography.
You may require images for your business. You may require photography for new marketing materials. You may be selling products online and require photographs of your products. You may need a photographer for a press release. Fro photographing children and adults, to the building and staff to Dennis the Menace, we were able to bring Brewers Fayre to life.

Event Photography for Festivals – Ten Tips on How to Photograph a Festival
Event Photography for Festivals – Ten Tips on How to Photograph a Festival
Lensi Photography offer event photography for festivals and all types of events, from conferences to corporate events to personal events.
This year Lensi Photography were one of the event photographers for The Parklife Festival in Manchester. As always The Parklife Festival 2015 did not disappoint, a great mixture of Artists and DJ’s, a myriad of tents and stages that festival goers would be entertained by, great security and planning, all in all a great festival.
If you are a photographer, and are covering a festival for the first time, this blog may be of use.
HOW TO COVER A FESTIVAL
1 – GET THERE IN PLENTY TIME BEFORE THE FIRST ACT YOU WANT TO PHOTOGRAPH
Photographers will all give you stories of no one knowing how to direct them to the press room, confirmed passes not being where they should be, having to drag heavy kit across a field of drunk revellers or the press room simply being miles away.
So if the first act you plan to shoot is on at 1, get there at at least 12, especially on the first day.
2 – FOOTWEAR AND CLOTHING
As a photographer, although it is hard work covering a festival (wear the most comfy footwear you have) and don’t be fooled by there being no rain, the festival WILL be muddy, wear your your wellies to be safe. Also bring a number of layers to pile on as it gets colder in the evening, I started out in shorts and a top, built up to a sweater, then a hoody on top of that, then changed shorts for leggings, and finally added a coat … once the sun drops it gets pretty cold, and although it may look and feel great in the day to be in your summer festival clothes, many women looked on at me envious by the time night came.
3 – ACTS PERFORMING
Know your acts!! There will be a host of celebrities and public figuresThe highlight of this years festival for me was Grace Jones, what a legend! What an honour to be able to shoot (photograph in none photographer speak) someone like her, the trail blazer for artists like Lady Gaga, and even at age 67, she still has it, and all minus cosmetic surgery! The press pit was full for her performance, which shows this was the shot that everyone wanted.
It will be impossible to cover everything, so work out who you want to cover beforehand or at the start of the day so that you have a plan. This will depend on who you are shooting for, some photographers need lots of crowd shots, some only need main stage acts and so on, you just need to be clear on what you need to shoot.
4 – EQUIPMENT
I carry two bodies on a Black Rapid Double Strap to a festival like this. Two Canon 5d3’s a wide angle and a telephoto zoom, one body would be lighter, but I prefer to carry two for speed when a shot appears and you need to suddenly have a different angle. Carrying my camera around my neck simply does not work for me, its painful and uncomfortable, being able to carry my equipment on my body is much more comfortable.
Some photographers also bring a 300mm (or above) in case we have a shoot from the mixer. Others also bring a super wide angle (if we are really close to the stage) or a fish eye (for those fun type shots), but this is just too much to carry around for me.
5 – WALKING, GETTING TO AND FROM STAGES
Most photographers will be filing back to their respective agencies / magazines / publications, so there will be a lot of time spent doing and fringe getting to the various stages, then heading back to the press room to upload your images. A plus for this year was that we were transported via buggy a few times, which really saved on the legs! (image courtesy of fellow tog and Friend Paul Torode)
6 – HAVE AN IDEA OF WHAT TYPES OF IMAGES YOU WANT
Research images from pervious events, it will give you an idea of what kind of spaces and backdrops you will be working with. From an image point of view images taken at night or in the various tents look amazing as the lighting is always well put together.
The more you photograph these events the more you learn and know what to look out for, for example Rudimental who have won awards for their festival performances always enter stage with a jump from their front guy, going out into the crowd to shot the main stage from far away once your press pit time is over also may get you some exclusives as well as a great full stage shots, such as the ‘Disclosure’ shot in this set.
I also shoot video snippets (which can be found on our YouTube Channel) as it adds a little more life to your coverage, and is great for most agencies and publications.
7 – SHOOT WIDE AND TIGHT, NEAR AND FAR, USE YOUR 15 MINS / THREE SONGS WISELY
You will get the first three songs or 15 minutes of a DJ set in the pit. Use this time effectively. Resist any temptation you may have to let go and enjoy the music, you are not there to party! Get your shots, and then you may relax for a bit …until you have to head to the next stage.
It can be tempting to get close up shots of some of your favourite artists, shots where they can clearly be seen, but be sure to also get wide ones, where they form a tiny part of the image. Some of my favourite shots from this year are shot way away from the stage, after your time has finished in the pit, don’t be scared to walk into the crowd to get a different angle. I shot these once our 15 mins were finished in the pit.
8 – MAKE FRIENDS!
Your first time at a festival can be daunting! The pros will know where to go for what time, the quickest way to the different tents and so on. I remember my first festival I fought my way through crowds many times to get to a particular stage, to then find out that photographers can take a backstage route!
Festivals are generally friendly places, (not all photography environments are!) and I have made some really good friends who are also fellow photographers there. I have helped people out with batteries and memory cards and shooting, as they have me. It’s also nice to be able to work and have someone to talk to and laugh with. It is most definitely still work, but it is great fun too!
9 – EARPLUGS
Bring some unless you wish to sacrifice your hearing for the sake of getting your shots! The speakers are designed to project to thousands of people in front of a stage, and you are standing next to them ….figure that one out!
10 – TOILETS
Bring sanitiser and tissue, these are festival toilets, need I say more?!! Unless you have VIP tickets, which have assigned cleaners who monitor the tissue, cleanliness etc.
Roll on next year, and more festivals!

Shooting Wildlife – Gorilla’s in the Mist
Gorillas in the Mist
I remember seeing Gorilla’s in the Mist in the 1980’s, I actually half did not believe that it was possible to see humans so close to wild Gorillas and them live to tell the tale. It was amazing to imagine a person being able to do this. The film tells the story of Dian Fossey zoologist and anthrapologist who dedicated her life to studying the mountain gorillas of Rwanda, Africa.
However, on a wedding commission to Kigali in Rwanda, we got to experience this for ourselves first hand.
The National Conservation Trust runs Gorilla treks to see actual wild Gorilla families, this is actually the same place that the film was made, and where Dian Fossey on who the film was based, devoted her life to the study of primates.
First you must obtain a license authorising you to do so. There are a limited number of license available each day, so this needs to be planned well in advance. The licenses do not come cheap, although there is a local price for Rwandans.
The day starts very early, 7am meet, where you will meet with other ‘hopefuls’, we have to use this words because not everyone is capable of completing their mission!
After a briefing, and introduction to the small group (8 people) that you will be trekking with, do’s and dont’s, you start your trek up a step mountain towards the heavy forested area where they live. This is not an easy feat… even relatively fit people will find themselves stopping for water or a rest, and this trek can continue for any length of time from an hour onwards, depending on how far your family of Gorillas are on that day.
Some of us found ourselves ready to give up, with legs no longer to lift to climb the steep mountain, and as the air gets thinner, an inability to get enough oxygen into your lungs.
When we finally reach the edge of their habitat, again briefings were reiterated, and suddenly you are filled with such excitement and anticipation that the adrenalin takes away all of the fatigue! We trekked for a further 30 minutes to find out small family, the TITUS family, we came across an adult female, Silverback male, and infant Gorilla.
It is difficult to describe the feeling, you are in the presence of real Gorilla’s!! You are humbled into submission at the greatness of these animals sitting only feet away from you.
Contrary to their depiction in many films, they seem placid, happy to just sit and eat, with the exception of the infant who runs around playing, even curiously touching the leg of one of us. As long as you do not impinge on them, and show them the respect they command in their own environment, they allow the temporary trespass of these strangers on their territory.
We follow them around for a while, in true jungle environments, the guides using machetes to cut trees and branches and other foliage to clear some sort of path for us, each new member of the family that we come across is as exciting as the last.
It is a true once in a lifetime experience.
I would have loved to bring every lens I had and could possibly use, however, practicalities. The trek is gruelling, if I could have done without carrying water I would have, just for the additional loss of weight. I carried one camera body and two lenses, and in the end, I wish I had carried just the one! A great range telephoto zoom is all you need. I carried one of the less expensive bodies for fear of a Gorilla taking my camera and me not being able to do anything about it!
Commercial Business Photography in Walsall – Construction Hoardings
Commercial Business Photography in Walsall – Construction Hoardings
Commercial Business Photography in Walsall by Lensi Photography.
We worked with Walsall Housing Group on a Project to provide commercial business photography in Walsall for hoardings that were about to grace one of their local areas that were having new housing constructed.
We are all used to seeing the plain white hoardings, aren’t they a little boring? So we decided to bring a little interest to the boards that will protect the buildings site in the Goscote Area Regeneration, with Commercial Business Photography in Walsall by photographing local residents whose images would feature on each boards.
Photographs of local people!?? Yes!
Photographs of people who are well known in the area, people who great achievements, people who work in the area. We came up with something like this ….
Something bright vibrant and relevant to the area. Photographs of local people that everyone would recognise and be able to relate to.
