A Winter Afternoon

I was delighted to get a call last week from agricultural PR agency Reverberate PR, asking me to shoot some crops for seed company Germinal UK. I was hoping for a sunny day but a combination of overcast skies coupled with some urgency (we wanted to get the photos before the cattle scoffed everything) meant […]

Video on a big backdrop!

Now I did an interesting professional commercial marketing videography job last week with Handicare, an accessibility equipment company in the West Midlands. They produce essential equipment for the elderly and those in care – in the current coronavirus situation this is incredibly important because it potentially enables anyone hospitalised to get back home and be […]

Wedding Photography

Should you book a professional or use a friend? As a professional wedding photographer in Shropshire, I was interested a little while ago when I found out that someone we know was getting married. They’d booked their wedding reception at a very nice location in Shropshire and out of curiosity I asked who was going […]

Fog and mist

I have to admit to being fascinated by fog and mist. There’s something mysterious about the way it shrouds everything, especially as it rises off the fields. It’s not exactly a unique event in Shropshire of course but it does invite great photos, particularly for agricultural and farming photography. I remember as a kid living just […]

Why we don’t always respond to Bark.com

As a commercial photographer in Shropshire, you may find our details on a couple of commercial, corporate headshot and video/photography sourcing websites – typically bark.com and bidvine. I’ve used Bark quite successfully in the past and I have a some great long term clients as a result. But let me explain the process from my […]

2020 Prom Photography

For the past few years I’ve been delighted to cover year 11 proms in Shropshire, with very happy customers who always ask me to come back the following year. These always occur over a very short timeframe (just after exams!) so my availability is quite limited, but I try to get at least two dates […]

Crochet Stitches

I’ve been working with publishers The Guild of Master Craftsmen for the past few months to build all of the photographic content for a book by crochet expert Val Pierce. Val already has 22 books to her name so it’s been an interesting commercial photography commission – the book is very comprehensive and as you […]

The Menopause Experts

I’m very privileged to work alongside The Menopause Experts, a leading menopause retreat company, videoing a large proportion of their online marketing and web site content and also shooting still photographs. They’re a great company to work with, full of fresh ideas and constantly active, which is of course really enjoyable. Videography in Shropshire and […]

What’s In a Name?

I thought I’d have a ramble about how we arrived at A Decent Exposure, our company name. Now this might sound a bit boring but read on! When I set up for event, food, commercial, equestrian and product photography I realised that my company name would be something that’s got to endure and so it […]

Video For Marketing

I’ve been working with video for a couple of years now and it’s been interesting to watch how my clients have evolved to use this media channel. Still photography is of course very important and I still have commercial, corporate and product photography clients in Shropshire and Staffordshire who maintain still photographs as their priority […]
