Richard is constantly approached to amend holiday snaps and photographs of loved ones all the time. In this section he showcases a few commissions where he is given the task to alter and improve photos
As the example shows, the original photo of my girls was taken but only one of them was looking at the camera - a typical issue only noticed when you get home!
He searched for more photos from the holiday snaps of his daughter on the left and swapped heads so she was looking directly ahead. He then also took out the credit card sign in the background as it added little for the composition and replaced with a light
With this beautiful cottage in North Wales, we needed to see how the property looked if we were to paint the existing stonework with whitewash before financing the scaffolding and paint. The wall would be repaired and re-pointed, undercoat and whitewash paint applied completing the process.
Wales is renowned for stunning whitewashed cottages so this revamp would not look out of place within the village surroundings.
Taking existing photos, we added the textured whitewash to each of the viewpoints and the work is now planned for the summer.
Project: Nottingham Navigator - Trinity Walk
Client: Nottingham City Council
Nottingham has a navigational project called Nottingham Navigator in which the public are directed to places of interest around the city centre of Nottingham on panels and fingerposts
Richard was tasked to show the position of a new electrical supply pillar for a repositioned panel to match the adjoining bollards which were brushed stainless steel. He referred to technical data and drawings and then drew and repainted a new bollard in the background
He finished the piece off with adding the radial paving blocks at the foot of the bollard for completeness. This mock-up was presented to urban designers and the authorities access officer for the disability groups and approval to proceed with the works was given
Richard had heard that there was a plan to return a narrow boat back to the Cromford Canal operating between Cromford Wharf and High Peak Junction. He decided to complete this CGI to show the Friends of the Cromford Canal what the finished scene would look like
The project was finished in 2014 and now the narrowboat ‘Birdswood’ proudly takes its passengers along the beautiful canal most weekends
