'Times they are a changing' said Mr. Bob Dylan, things move on and at Roy Watkins Photography things are moving on! We are known for our excellent and personal wedding coverage but we are now also promoting other sides of our business, the world around us in landscape photography, photo restoration, (meaning the revitalisation of your old pics that mean so much to you) and talks on photography and (later) short courses in basic photography
Whether it's in a family party, a music festival or a corporate event people like to see themselves and their friends on a photograph. We both feel it's important to take more photographs of the things and people that meant a lot, by doing so, preserve the present and future with a pictorial record of who and what we are. Camera phones have come a long way in the last few years, but they can't adequately do justice to long term memories and fine art and how many people print pics these days?
I am a member of the Society of the Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers and a past member of Llanelli Photographic Society (The oldest in Wales...) and if there's any advice I can give to someone who wants to improve their photography...join a club! You'll get tons of help and learn much about the art of photography. I have a BSc and an 'A' level in photography. I have taken courses with Canon Cameras and various other training seminars.
I have taken official photographs for St. Clears Town Council including a Royal visit a few years ago with the Duke of Edinburgh, the Welsh Assembly Government, as well as other corporate events and presentations. I am very much involved with St Clears Twinning Association and have produced audio visual records of visits including a visit to The Somme and Flanders a couple of years ago.
