Outdoor Portraits for Business. Bure Valley Railway Commercial Photography

Shooting Commercial Portraits allows you to tell a story and convey more about your business, your staff and what you do. Commercial Portrait Photography can be undertaken in a studio, but capturing staff in their natural woking environment opens up a whole new world of creative possibilities and showcases far more about your business than a plain background ever will. Shooting outdoor portraits in a typical environment also helps staff to relax.  Familiarity lends itself to putting your subject at ease and this is a huge factor in producing natural portraits. To coincide with a re-branding project, we’ve once again been working in the Norfolk Tourism Sector with one of our regular clients, The Bure Valley Railway.

Bure Valley Railway is a major tourist attraction within Norfolk and welcomes over 100,000 visitors a year. With a small team of dedicated staff and volunteers the railway operates on a not for profit basis. Husband and wife team, Andrew and Susan, head up the management team. Andrew’s love of railways from a little boy drew him to Norfolk and he became involved in the railway as a volunteer in its infancy and subsequently gave up his job in London a few years ago to work at the railway full-time. The Railway is built on the trackbed of the former Great Eastern Railway between Wroxham and Aylsham. Originally opened in 1880 the line survived for passenger traffic until 1952, eleven years before the infamous Beeching Report! The line did, however, survive for the purpose of carrying freight, a role it performed until the line was formally closed by British Rail in 1982. Norfolk County Council had an enlightened policy of safeguarding closed railway routes for use as footpaths. Through a partnership between local government and the private sector a narrow gauge line was built between Aylsham and Wroxham, with a nine mile long footpath running alongside.  It is Norfolk’s longest narrow gauge railway which runs between the historic market town of Aylsham and bustling town of Wroxham, at the heart of the Norfolk Broads. The 18 mile round trip runs through the pretty Bure Valley countryside following the meandering River Bure through meadowland and ancient pasture. Along the line are wayside halts serving the picturesque Broadland villages of Brampton, Buxton and Coltishall where you can hop off and explore by foot. Hop back on and continue your journey by train by waiving down the driver to stop.

Bure Valley Railway Commercial Portrait Photography

Shooting Commercial Portrait Photography in the heart of a steam based environment opened up some fantastic opportunities. Set against a background of engineering workshops, oil, grease and steam, we captured daily routines and passionate individuals who together, are responsible for the day to day running of the nostalgic railway. Shooting with predominantly natural light really is hard to beat. Creating ‘modern’ looking Commercial Portrait Photography is a case of working with the best lighting and backgrounds and making the most of having an eye for detail and composition. Working with a nice flat light was also really beneficial when shooting outdoor portraits, reducing harsh shadows and the chances of over exposed highlights. The chances to work with a Northern light can produce an almost  soft box look creating a soft, flattering light which fits just perfectly  for modern looking portraits. There is a reason why many artists have their  studios purposely facing the north.

Commercial Photography Norwich – The Watchmaker

Commercial Photography Norwich – The Watchmaker

The watchmaker – In the age of disposable products, the watchmaker has become an almost artisan profession. Modern watchmakers, particularly in Switzerland and Europe, work directly for the Watchmaking Industry,and may have completed a formal watchmaking degree at a technical school. They also receive in-house ‘brand’ training at the factory or service centre where they are employed. These highly skilled workers may have a watchmaking degree or certificate, but are also  specifically trained ‘in-house’ as technicians to service components of the watch in a true ‘assembly-line’ fashion, (e.g., one type of worker will dismantle the watch movement from the case, another will polish the case and bracelet, another will install the dial and hands.)

Blanc Creative have a built a reputation as one of the premier Commercial Photography businesses in Norwich over the past seven years, during which time, they have worked on numerous Commercial Photography and Commercial Video Products for Winsor Bishop. Winsor Bishop’s team of watch specialists have endless experience having worked at Asprey, Harrods, Rolex in both Knightsbridge and Bond Street as well as over 30 years experience at Winsor Bishop and other regional jewellers helping the people of Norfolk and beyond with their watch purchases. A watch is more than an object to tell the time these days, it is an investment for your future and Winsor Bishop’s watch salon holds the largest range of prestige wristwatches in the region.

Blanc Creative couldn’t resist the opportunity to capture a very specialist area of Commercial Photography with Winsor Bishop’s very own Watchmaker at work in the store’s Norwich Workshop. Commercial photography is photography created with the intent of making the end user money; essentially, photography for commerce and business. The Watchmaker is one of Winsor Bishops best kept secrets, so it was about time (excuse the pun) that customers had an opportunity to see just how the service department care some some of the most sought after watch brands in the world… And the best way to achieve this was through professional commercial photography. The imagery was shot in a very versatile way, thus enabling the client to use the photographs across a n umber of media platforms including Large Format Artwork in the Winsor Bishop Watch Salon, Printed Media and online marketing.
