Professional Photographer David Osborn, London, works in two areas, Corporate Photography & Landscape Photography. The common link is clarity of idea and quality of execution. Understanding the fundamentals of good photography does not limit you, but gives you the freedom and satisfaction of diversity.
What is Corporate Photography? Corporate Photography is the visual extension of a companies marketing and Corporate identity. Professional Photographer David Osborn’s job is therefore to convey professionalism and trust, as share holders and viewers will make judgements about the company based on the photographs they see. Corporate Portraits in particular must portray the individuals as taking their corporate responsibilities seriously, they must portray the personalities of the individual, but overly happy and laughing, in my view does not convey viewer confidence.
On a visual level, photographs will be used in a multitude of places from annual reports to websites. It is critical when photographing, the end use is kept in mind; the photographs need to be able to be read when reproduced small. For this reason, clean, simple and strong compositions are best as details will be lost in printed small. Equally, it is important to cover all possible uses by shooting both portrait and landscape formats. The technical quality of the photography will be a direct judgement on the quality of the company; quality photography implies a quality company.
What is Landscape Photography? Professional Photographer David Osborn, London, also shoots Landscapes. Landscape Photography might be defined as just visual record of a location. However, good landscape photography in reality, is really so much more. They communicate the spirit and soul of a location, conveying the light and mood, atmosphere Good landscape photographs have a synergy; they communicate emotionally far more than just the content of the image. If they do not invoke an emotional reaction, they have failed, like books without a story, a film without a plot.
Equally, a landscape photograph relies not only on the content but the technical execution, the craftsmanship put into the print. The technical ability to convey with sensitivity the subtleties of light and shade and three dimensional form with delicacy, for the richness of a fine print comes from the delicacy of rich, subtle tone and feeling of light. Too many landscapes I see, lack a feeling of spacial depth and are overly heavy handed in Photoshop technique, rather than light handed subtlety and feeling the mood of the landscape you wish to communicate.
