In the commercial world

Back in my first post I talked about how, for many photographers, a business in the visual arts is like a Hydra. We do different types of jobs as they pop up. I’ve never photographed a wedding (actually I lie, I did photograph one in India that involved eunuch dancers!), pets (apart from my own) or babies (again, apart from my own!)

In other words while I do do different types of work it’s in a specific area that relates to my visual aesthetic. Every so often that involves doing commercial work in the travel and tourism sector.

This was one such job which was a lot of fun. Who wouldn’t enjoy being at the beautiful Low Isles on a cloudless blue sky day photographing a family having a bunch of fun.

This was one of a series of shots that started with the little girl holding the bucket behind her (pretend) Dad’s head before pouring it all over him, much to her (real) Mum’s delight.
