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.

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.

Richard Budd – Dorset based Wedding Photographer 2016

Posted in Portfolio Events, Portfolio Portrait, Richard Budd News, Wedding Photography on March 9th, 2016 by RB

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.

I have years of experience in weddings and can offer advice, guidance and contacts to help your day run smoothly and without any hick-ups.

I’d love to shoot your Dorset Wedding so if you like my work and have your wedding day booked, why not give me a call on 07767 895205 or email Richard@RichardBudd.co.uk to arrange a no obligation meeting to see my wedding portfolio and discuss your needs and plans for the big day.

I forgot to say – congratulations on your engagement too…I guess if you’re reading this then you have already knelt on one knee.

RB

P.S. I look forwards to meeting with you both.

Product Photography helps explain what it is they do…

Posted in Food Photography, Portfolio Events, Richard Budd News on February 25th, 2016 by RB

When it comes to building a website people are always in need of imagery to help explain what it is they do, the services and products they offer. Morrish&Banham wine merchants are no different.

We set to work showcasing the fine wine and fine Dorset food on offer at the tasting room. Cutaway (or close up macro) style photography that can be used for the website and the online promotional work. It’s always fun shooting great Dorset produce on location – getting to know the company and the people behind it. Great work here by Mark and Caroline.

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….

Posted in Portfolio Action, Portfolio Events, Portfolio Portrait, Richard Budd News on February 15th, 2016 by RB

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+

I don’t know quite where to start with the selections. I love shooting fashion, editorial, studio work and then again I love travelling too….

OMG! I don’t know…

What do you think.

Promotional stills for @morrishbanham Wine Merchants in Brewery Square, Dorchester, Dorset ((#product #photography))

Posted in Portfolio Events, Richard Budd News on January 29th, 2016 by RB

It’s been a funny few weeks here – lots of random work. Recently I’ve been working on a set of promotional stills for @morrishbanham Wine Merchants in Brewery Square, Dorchester, Dorset. Currently in the process of building a new website they wanted a handful of stock images to customise it. Keeping the overall look and feel of the company’s logo and corporate identity the #product #photography has been edited with a warm golden feel. The main logo colours for Morrish & Banham are in fact gold and black – so this works really well.

I can’t wait to see how these images are used when the site goes live soon.

I’ll keep you posted – but for now their email newsletter is live so you could add you name to that and I’m sure M&B would let you know in person once the site is live, with News, Offers and of course handfuls of lovely wine bottles.

Commercial Corporate Environmental Portraits…

Posted in Portfolio Action, Portfolio Events, Richard Budd News on June 22nd, 2015 by RB

I do love working on location with companies shooting corporate environmental portraits (people at work) this not only gives me a chance to learn about new businesses but get to know the people behind the scenes who work for those companies too. Grafton and Co – are auditors in the hotel and hospitality field – they help business – which they do very well.
I asked them tell me what they did and here’s what Richard Grafton sent me…

We provide a personal, high quality service to the hospitality industry. We visit clients and provide them with a regular check of the profitability of all sections of their business, giving advice on costing, pricing, menu analysis and taking time to assist with forward planning, so the business owner can make informed decisions to maximise profitability.
Our clients include Hotels, Restaurants, Pubs, Clubs, Rest Homes – anywhere in the South and West of England that is part of the hospitality industry.

We feel that we fully justify our aim of “Success through Analysis”

Dorset Wedding Photographer Engagement Photo Shoot

Posted in Portfolio Events, Portfolio Portrait, Richard Budd News, Wedding Photography on May 31st, 2015 by RB

Pre-Wedding engagement photo shoots can be a great opportunity for the wedding couple to get to know me, and for me to get to know them. We work on styles of posing, the look / feel of shots even talk about hair and makeup for the wedding day. It’s all about the couple getting to know how we interact before the wedding day. It’s relaxed, it’s fun, it’s informative but above all it sets a standard and level for the wedding day.

I love confident couples getting together in front of the camera. I love working quickly and helping the couple relax and really get the most from this engagement shoot experience.

Some direction from me, and ideas from the engagement couple help the session run smoothly. Explaining and taking time to “see” what works in terms of positions and looks. If you are getting married and fancy booking an engagement shoot just ping us an email Richard@RichardBudd.co.uk of phone 07767 895205.

I hope you like the images as much as we did making them together. Special thanks to Pam and Ross for allowing me to share these images with you.
