York City Cruises Photography

Photography

Taking shipshape photos for an early evening summer cruise

York City Cruises wanted some new images that could be used on their website and marketing material to promote their early evening cruises going into the summer period.

We came onboard and capture a range of images during one of their evening cruises. Working with constantly changing light and on a moving boat presented some challenges, but we were able to capture some striking images to support their marketing.

The brief

The images needed to show people enjoying themselves on a York City Cruises early evening cruise.

We needed to show off the features of the sightseeing cruise by capturing shots of the sights from the boat, as well as the fun of being onboard.

The photos were to be used on their website and other marketing material, so we would need to shoot various different frames of shots to allow full flexibility.

The work

Shooting on a moving boat in early evening presented some challenges. The changing light was something we had to learn to work with. Sometimes using the sun to light the faces of our models, whilst other times backlighting them.

Additionally, with constantly changing scenery, sometimes we only had one chance to capture the perfect image, for example, getting a shot of York Minster in the background.

We were able to deliver the brief and the client was thrilled with the results.

Visit York Tourism Awards 2022

Visit York Tourism Awards 2022

Photography

Celebrating York Businesses

The Visit York Tourism Awards returned in-person after a virtual ’21 in March 2022. The event shines a spotlight on excellence in York’s tourism sector and rewards outstanding service, innovation, quality and resilience.

After working this event in person in 2019, we returned to capture the event through photography.

Photography

For this event, Alan and Megan had a ‘paparazzi’ set-up for the guests that were arriving on the red carpet before the event started. After this, general photos were taken of the opening ceremony before the awards were handed out. Once the award ceremony began, Alan took the photos of the presenters and the winners on stage, then Megan took the photos of the winners before their interview in-front of a Visit York and LNER backdrop.

These photos were turned around on the day and the very next day, so Visit York could use them straight away, and get them sent out to the businesses and guests in attendance.
