Landscapes for Business

Have you got a requirement for landscape images for marketing purposes or perhaps an in house magazine? Landscape images can help a brochure or leaflet catch the eye of prospective clients and customers. Our quality images are often in demand for a variety of uses including book and magazine covers, calendars and cards and publicity and marketing material.

High quality images images of local landscapes can help your business to identify with its local area and let clients know where you are based. Images can be used in leaflets and brochures, on websites or on the office wall where clients and suppliers can see them. How about sending your valued clients a corporate calendar of images of the local area?

I can provide images from our existing collection or take on commissions to obtain images of particular landmarks and scenes local to your business. These can then be licenced for use as you require or even be exculsive to yourselves.

Don will be more than happy to visit your company to discuss your requirements and evaluate your business needs, corporate values and underlying marketing messages you wish to convey. He will also discuss the logistics of obtaining the images required.

A specialist area in which Don has considerable knowledge & experience of working in is advertising and promotion for the leisure and tourism industry. Through his long term involvement with the West Somerset Railway's commercial department he has gained a good understanding of the industry and its marketing needs in the South West of England, for example much of the photographic work used by the WSR and several other private railways is Don's work, such is his reputation for quality illustrations. He has worked on producing a number of brochures/leaflets and visitor guides. One unusual commission was to provide suitable photographs of the West Somerset Railway to to be applied to the side of a mainline "Sprinter" train being used as a promotional tool for the Exmoor district (see illustration on this page) throughout the West of England rail network. More recently his work has been used by Exmoor National Park authority and Somerset County Council to promote the Exmoor area and local hospitals and medical centres to decorate their walls.

We would be very pleased to work with you on producing images to illustrate promotional literature and guide books, websites, reports and internal newletters etc. of your area or specific attraction. Just call us to discuss your requirements.

Don also has experience of working on editorial projects and regularly submits work, both pictorial and written, to magazines for publication, often working to tight deadlines. Many articles and images of Don's have been published over a 15 year period and he is regularly requested by editors to submit work on a particular subject. The largest projects of this nature to date have been his 6 books "Moods of the West Somerset Railway", "Spirit of the West Somerset Railway", "South Devon Railway", "Swanage Railway", "West Somerset Railway Revisted" and "Bodmin & Wenford Railway", all published by Halsgrove Press - see books and cards section of this website.

If your business has a need for good quality photography, either of a location, product or maybe staff then give us a call on 01278 784825 or e-mail to [email protected] (see contacts page for further details). We will be pleased to discuss your requirements with you and produce a plan for the work you would like undertaken.
