It took place at New House Farm (Lorton, Cumbria) which is a truly lovely venue for a wedding as I think this picture demonstrates. Glad to have been able to help as the photographer they booked had to pull out but fortunately I was able to re-arrange my plans to save their day!

Shiver me timbers! https://www.chrislewisphoto.co.uk/blog/2016/12/shiver-me-timbers One cold early winter day I photographed some timber cladding for a client. I should say that it was me who was shivering and not the wood. The wood was securely attached to the outside of the building but I was getting just a little cold. Suffering for my art, some might say! I enjoyed playing with a few different angles and made some pleasing compositions. I quickly warmed up in the car with the aid of a warm coffee and drove on to the next assignment. I love that each assignment brings different challenges and experiences and hope to continue enjoying being a photographer for many a year! The client said "These are great thanks" and "we are really pleased with the pictures", can't say fairer than that!

Picture it? https://www.chrislewisphoto.co.uk/blog/2016/12/picture-it As you may well have realised, a great deal of the photography I do is in some way to do with property. Although I enjoy photographing a wide range of different things including people, products, and any variety of different things to illustrate websites, magazines and other publications, I seem to photograph buildings the most. This is no bad thing as I enjoy photographing property, construction and interior design as well as the products used to construct a new home, office or other building. Here are some pictures from a recent brochure I worked on with a regular client. If you need some photography to illustrate your project, why not call me?

Ring the changes? https://www.chrislewisphoto.co.uk/blog/2016/11/ring-the-changes I was recently asked to photograph some wooden rings for a local craftsman to illustrate his website and these are a few of the pictures I made. Photographing objects, events and people to illustrate websites has become quite a large part of my work and I enjoy the variety and challenges this brings.

For a new website. https://www.chrislewisphoto.co.uk/blog/2016/7/for-a-new-website I am often asked to take photographs to illustrate people's websites, recently I've been working on a set of fresh pictures for the Kirkgate Theatre website. I was asked to photograph a production of "Like Carmen Eh" which was an adaption of the famous Carmen opera by the French composer Georges Bizet, this time it was given a very Cumbrian feel with distinctly local references and accents! A lot of fun!  Images for a website.Images for a website.A scene from "Like Carmen Eh" performed at the Kirkgate Theatre, Cockermouth. Photographer: Chris Lewis, Cockermouth Cumbria.

Interior Design https://www.chrislewisphoto.co.uk/blog/2016/4/interior-design It's been a busy week with one thing and an other. One assignment that I particularly enjoyed was photographing the newly refurbished interior of the Swan Inn in Cockermouth. This was the work of Amelia Wilson Interiors Ltd and I think she did a splendid job. So, if you have any interior design or architectural work you want photographed, why not give me a call?

For those of you who don’t know of it, the Fab Lab is an amazing place where they seem to be able to make almost anything - well worth a visit! I got some great pictures and was delighted to be praised for my work by the client with the words, “These are great - thanks so much for turning the photos around so quickly”.

Abstract. https://www.chrislewisphoto.co.uk/blog/2015/10/abstract

I was glad to be asked to photograph some paintings for Cumbria based artist Dave Gowers. I was pleased to accept Dave's commission as I enjoyed working with him previously and was looking forward to seeing some more of his beautifully enigmatic work. Dave's paintings are very glossy and consequently difficult to photograph, but with a little skill problems like these can be overcome! Here's one of Dave's paintings for you to enjoy.

I was recently very pleased to be asked to photograph one of Metro's reporters doing some Ghyll Scrambling at Stoneycroft Ghyll. It was a fabulous day and everything and everyone got completely soaked (including me and my camera). Fortunately no injuries and the camera survived.

All in a day's work. https://www.chrislewisphoto.co.uk/blog/2015/9/property One part of my work is to photograph buildings, sometimes industrial or commercial property and at other times people's homes, as shown below. This is an interesting and enjoyable part of my day. The kind of work I do is very varied and I have recently photographed Ghyll Scrambling and plan to do some PR photography for a theatre company soon. Sadly I had to turn down some work photographing the gurning champions at the Egremont Crab Fair, but a prior engagement in York meant I simply couldn't be in two places at once!

Painting. https://www.chrislewisphoto.co.uk/blog/2015/9/painting I was recently asked to photograph a painting for the acclaimed North East artist Peter Watson. He is known for his industrial scenes but also for his Yorkshire landscapes. It was necessary to copy the painting on location and so I set up a temporary studio to do this. I particularly liked his choice of subtle chocolatey tones - very reminiscent of an old sepia toned photograph. Peter was delighted with my work.

You may be wondering why I chose to feature this particular picture. Sure it's nice enough, but surely not beyond any other competent professional photographer in Cumbria? A pretty little Lake District church ideal for weddings. The thing about this picture is that it is made up of five separate images stitched together and that's what my week has been like. Lots of little bits (and some big ones) fusing together to keep me busy.

Group shots, a wedding, architectural photography and quite a lot of post-production work! From my base in Cockermouth my work has recently taken me all over the county and beyond!

Photographing property. https://www.chrislewisphoto.co.uk/blog/2015/5/photographing-property I have been busy photographing property recently. It has been and hopefully will continue to be a fascinating experience. I have always wanted to photograph buildings having worked with a variety of noted architectural photographers whilst a student many years ago. Since then I have photographed buildings for PR purposes, to record construction progress, to service estate agents and also for magazine use.

Here is an example of what has been keeping me busy.

Weddings - capturing the whole story. https://www.chrislewisphoto.co.uk/blog/2015/2/weddings---capturing-the-whole-story One of the things I love about my job is the variety. I'd hate to be doing one kind of photography all the time - so limiting! I've always believed that a good photographer can turn his (or her) hand to many different kinds of photography and succeed. Weddings are one of those things that I enjoy doing. I like to capture the atmosphere of the day and to tell a story in pictures. I also like to get the smaller details, like the rings, so that the couples photo-book tells the whole story and doesn't just capture the standard poses!

I did a really interesting photo-shoot for a client wanting some creative shots for their new website. I really love this type of brief, as well as getting the more usual photographs I had a chance to capture some creative images of these beautiful glass beads. I suppose you could say I was making the ordinary extraordinary.

Good photography can be a powerful addition to your PR armoury.  If you see a page of print, the eyes are immediately drawn to any pictures on the page.  At this point, the viewer can make an instant decision to find out more or move on.

This was photographed to illustrate the point "same but different" and if you look closely, you see what I mean.

Why not update your website with pictures like this that get to the point?
