2022 Commercial photography in Devon & Cornwall

 

You may wish to check out my Google reviews and here's an example of some recent feedback:

Tony was brilliant! He works very creatively, and is always trying to find the very best way to capture what you need. Very easy to work with too, got the best out of the models, and everyone was delighted with the final edits. I hadn't worked with Tony before and he came highly recommended, now I will do exactly the same... and highly recommend!

Chole, 2022

Tony Cobley Photography has collaborated with fellow Devon based creative business, Insignia Creative to offer Tony Cobley Prints via a new e-commerce website. The site will be live with all features in September 2022.

The new website provides the opportunity to view and purchase fine art photographic prints of Tony's favourite landscape and documentary photography. Included are scenic landscape photography of locations mostly in Devon and Cornwall, South West England and some of Tony's travel documentary and street photography.

Above: Screenshot from the new site

Fine art prints are printed using a 12 colour process specially developed for photographers and artists and this matched with an ultra smooth fine art paper gives stunning colour representation and quality every time from small prints up to a maximum width of 610mm wide. Digital files can also be downloaded for web and print resolution uses.

On the Tony Cobley Prints site you can browse and search images and get prices for various sizes of print and digital file. Payment is easy on the site and Insignia Creative then carry out the high quality printing and can promptly pack and deliver the print to your address.

Why not check out Tony Cobley Prints right now and treat yourself or a loved one to a special print. We even do gift vouchers!

The post lockdown year of 2021 has been one of my best ever years as a commercial photographer in Devon, Cornwall and other parts of South West England. I started the business in 2005 and 2021 has been one of the very busiest years of my photography career.

I've been commissioned for many types of work . Typical clients are marketing professionals, creative agencies, communications departments and business owners in "marketing" mode! They get really great value from their images as they use them accross all sorts of output from social media to websites, blogs, brochures, banners, flyers and more!!

It seems that many businesses got new websites built and / or reviewed their marketing plans during the Covid lockdowns and are now requiring quality images to populate their sites and marketing media. One of the reason's I've been so busy this year!

Here's a slideshow of some examples of the commercial photography work I've been up to very recently.

As you can see, much of my work from wellbeing photography to industrial photography takes on a lifestyle element. People are an important part of my work as a commercial photographer in Devon and I always like to get the the organisation's people involved to help reinforce their brand. Adding people can bring a product or service to life and get the attention of potential customers.

You can see all the categories of photography I cover on my folio home page and find examples of work I've done in your type of organisation. I'm always happy to discuss ideas, rates and options so please get in touch if you'd like to learn more about what I can create for you as a commercial photographer in Devon.

2023 Update, Coronavirus / Covid-19 Safe Professional Photography Practice Policy:

 

Tony Cobley Photography is committed to working in a safe and responsible manner and will continue to review health and safety based on current government guidelines. I received all the Covid vaccinations and boosters, the most recent being on 26th October 2023. I also have the flu jab each autumn.

Although restrictions have been completely eased, I am happy to apply any or all of the following procedures for safe professional practice on location based on you the client's preferences:

  • Comply with all requirements of client's workplace and h&s policy.
  • Maintain social distancing of the current guidelines, 2m where required / possible.
  • Use creative / staggered compositions where required for Socially Distanced Group shots
  • Avoid contact, shaking hands, etc where required.
  • Wash hands frequently with soap and warm water.
  • Use hand santitiser where available and surface sanitiser spray.
  • Don’t allow clients to touch cameras, lights, computers, etc.
  • If symptoms (as per current guidelines) or temperature develop cease work immediately, isolate and follow government guidelines re testing etc.
  • Use Zoom or phone for meetings and tuition sessions where possible.
  • Wear mask (and gloves where appropriate) indoors. Mask often needs removing for actual shooting to avoid viewfinder steaming up.
  • Bear in mind that PPE is "last resort" and should not be seen as an alternative to distancing, washing and other above main precautions.
  • Travel independently in car to client and others involved.
  • Communicate: Ensure all other people involved in a shoot are aware of the above.
  • Report any Covid incidents to HSE via RIDDOR

Here are some examples of social distanced group photos I have taken during the Covid 19 period. Al the people are 2m apart despite the creative angles making them appear closer.

I have been working with a Covid Safe Professional Practice to help my clients with their marketing and PR.

My commercial photography clients are very varied as you can see and I can provide many types and styles of photography for them. A group picture is often part of the brief so we have to get creative to make this happen safely!

These examples include an accountants firm, a building supplies company and a medical organisation all in Devon.

Socially distanced groups can still be creative and dynamic by arranging people in staggered formations with interesting backgrounds and surroundings which support their brand message.

Photography for medical and scientific clients is one of my favourite sectors. It is always nice to get feedback such as this from marketing professionals within medical & healthcare organisations:

“It is easy to believe that anyone can take a photo to support their marketing needs but it is only when you engage a professional such as Tony Cobley that you realise how wrong you have been. We have employed Tony Cobley to support our rebranding and updating of images for multiple use. Images have been used for web and social media but most importantly for editorial, advertising and production of promotional materials. It is then that you realise how important it is to have high quality, well thought out images to support you marketing needs. Tony Cobley’s professionalism makes working with him very easy and especially when working in a medical setting such as ours, professionalism, courtesy and respect is evident in Tony’s approach.”   Kathryn. Marketing & Comm's manager.

I can carry out medical and healthcare photography in Plymouth and Exeter and other areas of Devon & Cornwall.

I also do legal evidence photography and personal injury medical photography for law firms in Devon & Cornwall.

 

Creative virtual learning with your camera or phone.

I can now offer  Personal Photography Tuition activities service virtually via Zoom sessions with screen sharing. Creative learning is a great way to interact, stimulate the senses & brain and to ward off any possible effects of isolation and loneliness. I can talk through your objectives and level of experience - it's ok to be a complete photo beginner, an expert or anything between! Many of my sessions are totally non-technical and fully inclusive. I often work on creative composition skills and via Zoom I can show images for us to discuss / critique. An ideal mix is 2 x 1 hour sessions with a week gap between for you to try things out at home or in the garden, this is just £90.00. You can do some practical photography during the session and take me with you on your phone or tablet! It's then possible to screen share your images with me via Zoom so we can discuss your photo results and help you improve further. It's all super relaxed and fun and very effective use of any self isolation time. Feel free to contact me to discuss photography tuition self isolation activities ideas for you - I can offer a bespoke package for exactly your requirements. Packages start at £45 for an hour initial session up to £300 for a flexible 7 hour package. Available as gift vouchers to any value over £45.
No matter what you are promoting, showing it with people is the way to go! I work on promotional photography in Devon on all sorts of varied marketing campaigns in South West England. These campaigns can be to promote services, products, spaces or even concepts for any organisation.

Things, Brands, Experiences, Situations

No matter what the “thing” to be promoted, showing people interacting with it will bring it to life and communicate how the potential customer would experience it. Many of my clients have brand guidelines which ask me to show what it feels like to experience their offering. “Lifestyle” photoshoots are the most obvious solution but similar human involvement can also happen in industrial situations, education environments and even close up details. Using just parts of a person such as hands can also bring photographs to life and provide scale and context.

Fewer Words, More Images

In the age of new media, the fewer words used, the better. Because we scroll through so much content and only stop when something catches our eye, images are initially more powerful than words. So images with people can describe a product or service without having to include lots of words.

Models?

When working as a photographer in Devon or wider afield, models for photoshoots come in many guises: Some clients hire professional models or extras, other use their own staff and some use volunteers or family and friends. I am experienced in working with all of these individuals, each requiring slightly different management on shoot.

"Happy Models Make for a good shoot!"

I like to work on the basis that “Happy models make for a good shoot” so it's always good to make sure they are relaxed, comfortable and fully aware of what’s happening.

Promotional Photography in Devon

A browse through the commercial photography folios on my website will show how people come in to most aspects of my commissioned work. See if you can guess who the people are and how they became involved in helping on the shoot. If you have an organisation with a brand to promote, I would be very pleased to discuss creative photography ideas for working with people to get your brand message out there. Tony
