Weeping Window at the Senedd, Cardiff Bay

The Weeping Window installation which marks the centenary of World War One and was unveiled at the Senedd in Cardiff Bay on August 7, 2017 in Cardiff, Wales. The display took five days to set up, with each handmade poppy put in place by a team under instruction of designer Tom Piper and artist Paul Cummins. The Weeping Window first went on display at the Tower of London in 2014 and has since been on a tour of the country. 

Live images - for event and conference photography

Lately I've been working on a system to speed up the delivery of images to clients - particuarly for conference and event photography.

Traditionally images are edited at the end of an assignment and then a Dropbox or WeTransfer link provided where the images can be downloaded.

Wifi-enabled cameras allowing images to be shared instantly.

To speed this up I am now able to provide images almost instantly by sending them directly from the camera to a Dropbox link where they are available to download within seconds.

This is particularly useful for conferences and events where images often have the greatest impact straight after they are taken. 

It's a system that's been successfully used on numerous events from conventions to university graduations and red carpet events. 

Being able to access the images through Dropbox will allow you to share the images straight away - reaching a global audience on social media within seconds.
