Top quality photography, to help you stand out from the crowd

We all know the phrase that a picture paints a thousand words, but did you know that poor images are proven to negatively impact your website user experience, website conversion, how long people stay on your site, and your credibility in the eyes of potential customers? So why not consider a photo shoot to provide a set of top quality professional images for your website, social media or other marketing channels.  

What types of photography do you need?

Gary Holpin specialises in a range of types of photography which could provide everything that you will need for promoting your leisure or tourism business on websites, social media, and print, to help you stand out from the crowd. 

Specialisms include, property interiors & exteriors (hotels, B&B's), leisure & tourism locations (from glamping sites to tourist attractions to golf courses) including aerial (drone) photography, and people and events (from corporate headshots to informal shots of customers enjoying your attraction)

Understanding that you can't always justify the cost of professional photography to meet all your photography needs, I am also able to offer tailored photography training to you and your staff, to help improve the quality of your day to day photography for social media. 

And finally, I am also able to offer my extensive portfolio of landscape photography (on licence), to help showcase the natural beauty of your part of Devon as a tourist destination.

More information on the types of photography that I specialise in can be seen shown below, with examples of my work. If you can't see the type of photography that you need, please ask; I may still be able to help.

Working with you

From the outset, my first objective is to fully understand your requirements and the photos that you require. For simple requirements, this can be a quick phone discussion but for more complex requirements I always recommend an on-site visit, as this helps me to better plan your photo shoot in detail. I will work with you (or your marketing specialist) to develop a detailed shot list for the shoot, and always like to have them available during the shoot itself, to ensure that we stay on-track to deliver what you need.
