Real World Photography Case Studies

On this page you will find a sample list of Inside Out Photography's (IOP) recent commissions, plus some interesting case studies from past years.
It's always a risk showing clients work dating back more than a couple of years, but we believe this history illustrates not only IOP's longevity, but also how Bernard's shooting style has evolved professionally over the Forty Two years.

These are
all commissioned shoots which give you an insight into the service we deliver, and how IOP is constantly striving to push creative standards and improve the service we provide to our clients, in the Manchester and Derbyshire areas, North West, Midlands and the wider UK.

CDL - New Office Building

The images on this page are from a recent commission for a Stockport based technology client to publicise the rapid expansion of the company and celebrate the opening of a 2nd building.

However due to the orientation of their near North facing newly built building, we had no option but to patiently wait for over 6 months, before re-visiting the site at approximately 5.15am, when the front elevation would
finally be bathed in glorious sunshine.

Even then
IOP combined 3 different exposures taken approx 15 minutes apart to remove shadows cast by adjacent buildings on the side elevation, whilst retaining the texture effect of the building finish on the front elevation.

InAl - Aluminium Industrial Components

The images on this page were for an aluminium fabrication company specialising in high-precision components for the automotive, and aerospace industries.

Some of these components were fairly small with very fine intricate details which from an engineering perspective were essential to show.
IOP used specialist perspective control optics and selective light-painting to bring these details to the forefront.

Historical Manchester United Aerial Photography

These aerial images were commissioned by Manchester United Football Club, Inside Out Photography's oldest and most loyal client, and a small selection from a library of over 320 aerial views and 26 flights, dating from 1992 to 2012.

Generally, the changes we all witness in our surroundings happening gradually and can go almost unnoticed. It is easy to forget just how much things have changed over a longer period, until you are presented with a series of historical images, aerial photography is particularly effective in highlighting these changes.

Not only is the expansion of the stadium impressive; equally fascinating are the developments in the surrounding area, with some roads and buildings disappearing, while new ones spring up!

CDL - Recruitment Campaign

The 'People' images shown below were to be used primarily in a recruitment brochure which needed to firmly target younger candidates.

Polypipe

The Photographs below are from a 2010 and were commissioned by SLG a leading Manchester based advertising agency for their client Polypipe.

IOP’s under-floor heating system, to be used in the installation guide.

Hotel Photography

The images on this page are a small selection from a 2014 commission for a hotel group client covering six hotels from the Midlands up to Edinburgh.

The key mission here was to capture the quality of the recent refurbishment of the hotels in this chain and show the interiors looking as warm, luxurious and inviting as possible.

We used a technique called
light painting, of selectively illuminate larger open-plan interiors even with glossy reflective walls and to add life and texture to small details such as furniture and curtain fabrics.

A Blast From The Nations Past - The Legendary Factory Records - Manchester

The images on this page are from one of Inside Out Photography's first ever jobs over twenty-six years ago!

Taken in 1991 these show the
'then' brand-new premises of the legendary Manchester based 'Factory Records'.

Sadly the company ceased trading only six months later, making these interior images of this iconic player in the music scene of the 80s & 90s quite rare, which is why on this occasion they are protected by an additional embedded copyright logo!
