Expenditure or Expendable?

I am pleased to announce I am now an official supplier member of the Caerphilly Tourism Association. The tourism association is a group of local tourism businesses dedicated to bringing tourism operators together, making the tourism industry stronger and ultimately increasing visitors to the County borough of Caerphilly, and as a Caerphilly borough resident myself, this is an association close to my heart.

I have photographed events in the Caerphilly borough over the past few years, such as Caerphilly Food Festival, Caerphilly Christmas Market and The Big Cheese.  I have also had the privilege of being commissioned to photograph association members venues, namely the beautiful Cwmcarn Forest Drive, Parc Cwm Darran, Brewers Lodge, Lle Hyfred and the newly restored Newbridge Memo.

Expenditure or Expendable?

Professional photography for tourism businesses is so important, but is often an expenditure that is seen as expendable.

The truth of the matter is… every business, not just within the tourism industry, can benefit from great professional images, which will always contribute to their overall business success.

What sets you apart from your competitor?  

With the growing popularity of the internet over the past two decades, combined with the change in consumer shopping behaviour, high quality professional photography showcasing your business and products are more valuable than ever before.

Professional photographs are versatile assets which support marketing your business on your website and social media channels, which is just as essential as having a business card or brochure.

That’s why I’ve joined forces with the tourism association as a supplier member, offering local tourism businesses professional high quality photography without the commercial price tag that comes with it. 

Smart Phone Photography

In addition to my photography service the business will receive, my aim is to provide members with the skills and knowledge required to take advantage of smart phone technology, enabling members to take high quality images on smart phones in the future.


With smart phone technology advancing year upon year and phone cameras getting better and better, smart phones are becoming more complicated to use.

Photography for Tourism Businesses - Creating a Positive Online Image

A recent training course I provided to members at Llancaiach Fawr Manor titled ‘Photography for Tourism Business – Creating a Positive Online Image’ was a resounding success. 

I taught members a step by step process on how to take advantage of their smart phone tools. From the photography theory to the practical and the editing process afterwards.

By investing in your business photography, you are opening a gateway of marketing opportunities.
