Commercial photography and landscape photography - how I manage to do both

Having spent all yesterday going on about the photography work I specialise in, namely

Architectural photography

Commercial photography, and

Industrial photography

You might, quite rightly, question why I post landscape photography work on my website.

Well there are a number of reasons for that.

Firstly, I like to.

I like going to nice, new and interesting places. Who doesn’t? And when I am there I like photographing these places. And during my working day when I am out and about I am always looking for things to photograph.

I am dreadful really.

I actually take notes of places that might be worth a visit on my IPhone, or I take a shot on my IPhone so I have the location and potential subject matter of my next masterpiece tagged electronically.

Honestly how did we manage not that long age before all of the technology?

And film cameras. I am old enough to remember them. I used to have one, well several actually.

So yes as well as my commercial work I have this other area of work, principally travel photography and landscape photography.

When I don’t have the commercial pressures of my commercial photography I can relax into my other, personal (to start with) work. And I can also experiment in Lightroom and Photoshop.

I taught myself sky replacement using some of my landscape images. And I have used some of my landscape photography skies in my commercial work, so there is an inevitable crossover.

This is why I have split my website into commercial work and my places galleries.

So you can tell them apart now but still access both.

It has been said that a photographer’s personal work is a better reflection of their photographic style than their commercial work.

I guess in my case that is 50% true. I enjoy my travel photography and landscape photography, but equally enjoy my commercial work. It is just that they are done in different circumstances, with different constraints and pressures.

Blimey, where did that come from?
