Promotional images for Liberty Fields – Vodka.

Posted in Photography Tips, Portfolio Portrait, Richard Budd News on December 4th, 2016 by RB

I’m working on some promotional images for Liberty Fields – Vodka.

I wanted to show you the setup – just for fun really.

2 strobes – 1 on the back wall to blow the white sheet to 100% Zero – the other hitting the ceiling (bouncing) soft/large light over the model to create a wide soft quality of light and lovely soft shadow detail.

Just thought I’d post this to keep the Blog followers in the loop to show what we do and how it works in progress.

I’m thinking the design for the posters / advertising materials could look a little like this?

A couple of logo overlay tints and a bit of copy should do it…. But I’ll need to run this by the design guys.

My world….to produce a set of location portraits…

Posted in Portfolio Portrait, Richard Budd News on September 8th, 2016 by RB

I love meeting and photographing interesting people – these are 3 people I recently met. Nominees for an award ceremony.  I was asked to produce a set of location portraits of each person and this is the way it went…

2016-09-08_0002

One – joined the territorial army at 19 and is now 96 years old who was awarded the military cross.


 

2016-09-08_0001

The second – is a 90 year old Holocaust survivor, who teaches others about forgiveness.


 

2016-09-08_0003

The third – A father of three who had both legs amputated when he was a baby and now runs a football charity for kids.

 

 

 


 

The memories and talks I had with all 3 of these people – moved me in ways a cannot explain. Well done all of you and good luck with the ceremony…

I like to keep things simple

Posted in Photography Tips, Portfolio Portrait, Richard Budd News on September 7th, 2016 by RB

I like to keep things simple – (not all the time as those who really know me already know)

With shooting I often get caught up with the GEAR hang-ups and forget the important part. Capturing emotion, feelings, energy and the REAL person often gets forgotten until towards the end of a shoot because too much time is spent setting up lights, hair and makeup and the faff stuff just gets in the way. By the time the shoot is upon us the sense of energy and connection is far from the front of the models mind or indeed mine.

Every now and again I love to setup an impromptu shoot, using one camera – one lens – no extras – no strobes – lights – props – gimmicks! Yes bare and raw! I setup a brief shoot with Emily and set to it.

The main thing I get from these types of location portrait sessions, similar to shooting street photography is re-learning how to talk to people, interact with people and get the best from people. No spending time looking at screens, ipads, iphones or the back of the camera, just 1-to-1 interaction. Don’t forget this is possible. I hope you like the results and have learned something from this as much as I did.

Special thanks to Model Emily.

How did I not know about this Dorset Gem!

Posted in Portfolio Events, Portfolio Portrait, Richard Budd News on July 22nd, 2016 by RB

I seem to doing a lot of NOT-DRINKING at the moment. Working with Dorset food and drink clients – I sometimes wish I had a driver and was able to sample the delights of such delights that the Langham Wine Estate had on show! Wow, what a lovely surprise after taking an Instagram photograph of the road to Langham’s (grass in the middle of the road always means a fun start to my day in Dorset) I found what can only be called an oasis!

Dorset sparkling wine producer Langham Wine Estate welcomed guests this weekend as doors to the brand new tasting room were opened for the first time. Customers, local businesses and friends old and new enjoyed a guided tour of the vineyard and winery, a tasting of the full Langham range, and a sneak preview of the new space; an original barn tastefully restored into a rustic yet practical tasting room.

This is what they say…

Langham Wine Estate opens tasting room doors to Dorset and beyond Dorset sparkling wine producer Langham Wine Estate welcomed guests this weekend as doors to the brand new tasting room were opened for the first time.

Customers, local businesses and friends old and new enjoyed a guided tour of the vineyard and winery, a tasting of the full Langham range, and a sneak preview of the new space; an original barn tastefully restored into a rustic yet practical tasting room.

Natural light is let in through floor to ceiling glass doors at one end, whilst industrial style lamps light up the bar area, complementing the traditional, provincial ambience. The décor is stylish yet timeless, with natural wood adorning the front of the tall bar, and a cool, concrete floor.

The tasting room will be used to host tours, and provides a beautiful space in which to taste Langham’s wines – for both organised visits and curious passers- by. Available for private tours, tastings and exclusive hire, eventually Justin and Daniel plan to host ticketed dinners with well-known local chefs.

Justin Langham, owner and founder of Langham Wine Estate, comments on the opening: “Dorset has everything required to produce wines of the highest quality: chalk soils, a warm climate and long growing season. Our tasting room opens up the opportunity for even more people to come and enjoy our wines just a stone’s throw from the vineyard and winery where they are produced.”

Daniel Ham, Langham winemaker continues: “We hope that it will encourage people far and wide to discover what Dorset has to offer, to taste, to visit the estate and get a personal insight into how we go about producing world-class wines.”

The opening comes hot on the heels of Langham’s recent success in two international awards this summer. As well as retaining the Vintners’ Trophy for Most Outstanding Wine in the annual UKVA awards for the Classic Cuvée Reserve 2011, Langham Blanc de Blancs 2011 won Gold in the International Wine Challenge (IWC) and Gold in the International Wine and Spirits Competition (IWSC), in the Bottle Fermented Sparkling category.

The tasting room is open 11am-5pm, Thursday to Saturday in July and September, and Tuesday to Saturday in August. Visit www.langhamwine.co.uk for directions and full opening times.

BOX OFFICE – http://www.creationtheatre.co.uk/show-one/hamlet

13 July – 13 August 2016

The parapets of Castle Elsinore in the dead of night. The late King’s spirit stirs from the trappings of purgatory and Denmark’s young prince vows to avenge his father’s murder. Follow Hamlet as he agonises over mortality and morality in a world fraught with madness, revenge and corruption.

Set in 74 acres of parkland in the heart of Oxford, Creation Theatre will transform University Parks into Hamlet’s Elsinore Castle, as the young prince battles his family and his demons. Take a stroll in the parks before the show, pack a picnic and spend the perfect summer’s evening with Creation Theatre.

Promotional Portraits

Posted in Portfolio Portrait, Richard Budd News on June 21st, 2016 by RB

Today I had the pleasure of taking some promotional portraits of the wonderful Caroline and Mark at Morrish&Banham. I do love shooting location portraits – it’s a little like cooking pancakes! The first one is always $H!T! 😉 It’s all about forgetting about the camera and being yourself. Mark quickly starts talking about steak and chips to get into the mood – he knows how to work it!

Rent, Richard Tauntons Performing Arts, The Hub, Southampton

Posted in Portfolio Action, Portfolio Events, Portfolio Portrait, Richard Budd News on April 26th, 2016 by RB

Set in New York, 1989 the Tony award winning Rent tells the tale of a group of friends throughout a year of their lives and addresses themes such as HIV and Aids, drug use and sexuality – easily considered dark and difficult themes for any production yet alone a youth one; but the students of Richard Taunton Sixth Form handled the subject matter with maturity and integrity beyond their years.

Dorset based wedding photographer Richard Budd.

I always struggle with this bit… the self promotion stuff. I am lucky enough to live and work in Dorset and the surrounding counties Hampshire and Somerset shooting Weddings.

I offer a set price (all inclusive) package which includes my time on the day, prints, albums and editing… You even get the (high resolution non-watermarked) images on DVD which means you can get extra prints yourself without being ties into us. This saves you time and money too.

Spring Collection Photoshoot with Robin James Salon

Posted in Portfolio Portrait, Richard Budd News on March 4th, 2016 by RB

Here are a few stills from a photoshoot we just completed with Robin James Salon. They took stylists and colourists from each of their salons and put them all together to create this wonderful set of looks. The images go together to create training manuals for staff along with promotional materials for the salon website and outlets. The posters look amazing, and the pop-up banners rock! Well done all involved.

Ssoon Vidal Sassoon was my inspiration and I have used the simple, beautiful and timeless lines of the Sassoon philosophy all of my career in my own work and whilst teaching our next generation of hairdressers. Spring is the time of new life and a fresh start. Robin James has incorporated all of these influences to create the Ssoon collection”.

I get to meet some amazing people on my travels

Posted in Charity Work, Portfolio Events, Portfolio Portrait, Richard Budd News on February 24th, 2016 by RB

I get to meet some amazing people on my travels and working as an event photographer. Last year it was Mr Michael Buerk, then this year’s Ockenden Prize awards was the BBC world affairs editor, John Simpson CBE.

It’s always nice to have a little informal time with the guest speaker if time allows. John Simpson was very kind and generous with his time and allowed a few minutes 1-2-1 with me to shoot his portrait to help raise awareness of the great work The Ockenden Prizes support and the work Ockenden International do in the area of self-reliant refugee projects.

For more information about the charity go to http://www.ockendenprizes.org/2016-prize

Always great to get a nice series of stills of Mr Michael Buerk relaxing in front of the camera – it’s the frames in between frames I like the most.

 

Shooting #Production #Photography for Creation Theatre….

It’s all about King Lear.

12 February – 19 March 2016

A story of power, madness and betrayal. Set amongst towering book stacks, our cast of just five actors will present Lear’s spiralling descent in this fast-paced and inventive reworking of one of Shakespeare’s greatest tragedies. In just two and a half hours, this radical retelling will follow the ageing King and his three daughters in a tale of ignorance and deceit as he struggles to divide his kingdom amongst them.

A new adaptation from Director Charlotte Conquest and brought to you by the team behind our 2011 sell-out Doctor Faustus, we’ll transform the iconic Norrington Room deep below the busy Oxford streets into a 186 seat theatre in a celebration of 20 years of Creation, 50 years of the Norrington Room and 400 years since Shakespeare’s death.

Running time: 2 1/2 hours (including interval)
Recommended for ages 11+
