Here’s an unimaginatively cobbled together blog post about some recent jobs undertaken as a working photographer in Wales (and part of England) this month. These jobs have mainly work been in Bristol, Newport and Cardiff.
It’s been an enjoyably varied few weeks of photography work.
There was a lovely three generation family photography shoot at a scenic lodge of The Celtic Manor Resort in Newport. A very proud grandma was celebrating her 60th with a couple of generations, including this bouncing bundle.
There was a Give & Gain Day event at St Michael’s Primary School in Newport last week. Part of a wider Business In The Community (BITC) initiative, this saw many large businesses give something back to local communities. It seemed that the children really enjoyed it, and it was a fun gig for me too.
There was the completion of a sprawling commission of headshots, which took me as far north as Llandudno and as far south as Exeter. It needed one final trip over the bridge to Bristol in order to complete the set.
There was football photography at the tail end of the domestic season, with big emotion at Bristol Rovers and amateur cup finals in Cardiff.

There was a visit of the Wales Air Ambulance airbase in Welshpool. I’m always stunned by these people: aviation and medical professionals with serious responsibilities. This was never more profound when I saw them training around a year ago in emergency scenarios. They do truly incredible work.

There was an eye-opening prototyping workshop at the impressive School of Management of Cardiff Metropolitan University, coordinated jointly between Nesta and culture hackers Satori Lab.
I hadn’t ventured far into the Llandaff campus of Cardiff Metropolitan University for several years, and was genuinely impressed by the amount of development. The School of Management itself was a fantastic building, and the Fab Lab a terrific hub of creativity and craft.
The workshop itself showed how inventive business and public sector process solutions don’t just make themselves. There are plenty of techniques and tactics to reaching a solution. Sometimes a considerable amount of trial, error, lego, post-it notes and cardboard is required.
There was the Flooring Show at Cardiff City Stadium. An impressively well attended event which brought together vendors and contractors from across the industry.
So how about you? Any business events, family or community gatherings you’d like nice images of? Please get in touch if so. Thanks for reading.
