Reading University Postgraduate Prospectus

The University a student chooses to go to is a massively important decision in their lives. The next few years of their education & ongoing career can depend upon it. So I was very proud to be asked by Reading University to shoot a collection of images that would be used in their Reading University Postgraduate Prospectus, 2016. The print run was to go into thousands with a great many of these going to potential students overseas.

Photo Stock Agency images are great if you need something quick & generic…. but there’s nothing as good as having your own images, of your own products, the way you want them. That same principle applies to the educational services & environment offered to students coming to a university to learn & socialise. With that in mind I spent 2 really great days shooting images around the Reading University campus with a total of 40 students. We wanted to show some the facilities on offer at the university but also the fun & social life that the students could look forward to if they chose Reading University. The students were split into small groups & we met up with them at varying points through their day. On their way to lectures, relaxing in the coffee shops, meeting up in the town centre, we even sat in on an actual lecture…..all too clever for me!! I’m pleased to say I think we achieved that. It’s always a thrill to see your work in use & non more so than when I received my copy of the prospectus in the post today!

So you can see that Commercial Photography isn’t always set up images of products in studios under controlled lighting, sometimes like this shoot it can be naturally captured images of people going about their daily lives. Please contact me if you have a photography project in mind for your business & we can arrange a meeting to discuss it over a coffee.
