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.

We also provide Commercial Business Photography in Walsall and beyond for all aspects of your marketing, press and advertising.

Fashion Photography – London Mens Collections SS15

Fashion Photography – London Mens Collections SS15

This was our first time covering London Mens Collections for an Agency.

First thoughts, much smaller than fashion week. This (as in fashion) has to be one of the few exceptions worldwide that we can think of where the female version is bigger with a higher profile (we are thinking of football as one example).

For Fashion Photography London Mens collections however had all the usual markings of fashion week, weird and wonderful and ahead of time street style, catwalks in different venues with photographers having a good workout during all the days (lugging a Peli case and equipment to and from various venues, stairs and all) enchanced accreditation for the higher profile designers (Moschino, Burberry, Hackett and the like) and photographers packed into a tiny press pit, which makes you want to warn all up and coming photographers, if you have an issue with personal space, do not think of press or fashion photography.

The space situation often sees us straddling or being straddled by complete strangers in a bit to get the best space.

Also there are the procedures of mark ups, where photographers get to set their positions beforehand days before the event, it seems as though not all photographers get this, if this is the case they have to find and make spaces when the event arrives around all the photographers that have their pre marked positions.

As for the fashion, our favourite show was the clean lines of Oliver Spencer, coupled with their introduction of Brazillian Carnival dancers and drums into the show.

Project Red – MC1r

Project Red MC1r

The BBC contacted me to be part of a radio debate panel about ‘gingerism’ / prejudice against people with red hair. I was on the side of the panel arguing it is a real prejudice that people do experience. The other panel member arguing that people should take comments and negative experiences with a pinch of salt, sadly did not turn up, so it could not go ahead, but this got me thinking about this once again.

They contacted me not because of my own red locks, but because of a project I started a few years ago. A final major project and exhibition when studying, which I did incidentally, get a distinction for 🙂

This documentary portrait project aimed to show the beauty and diversity of redheads, and share some of their experiences (both positive and negative) of having red hair. Many people have asked me ‘why’ not having red hair myself, I answer ‘why not!!?’ I think red hair is beautiful, and having been told about negative experiences by some, I wanted to find out more about all these experiences and bring them to others.

They were asked to share their best and worst experiences of having red hair.

These are just some of the portraits I produced from the project, and do they not simply show great beauty?

The project received a lot of interest with me being interviewed by the BBC on three occasions about it, as well as pieces in the local newspaper, art magazines and three exhibitions.

It is a project I hope to continue / revisit at some point, if there is enough interest and another angle I can approach this from.

I am shortly about to embark upon another documentary portrait project exploring beauty….we will see what images this project produces.
