Commercial Photographer Newport

Webber Photo is me, Rhys Webber (plus assistants where required), and I'm a Newport based Photographer, offering portrait photography, product photography, commercial photography, industrial photography, travel photography and fashion photography from my studio in Newport, South Wales. I also have a portable photography studio setup which allows me to shoot at your place of business if required. I offer both Photography Services in Newport, but also Newport Photography - my personal photography work, which is all about documenting the diversity of the people of Newport through photographic portraits. Of course, being a Newport Photographer doesn't tie me to the city, with clients from across the UK and beyond.

Photography is my passion and I'm lucky that people pay me to do what I love — being a photographer! I also take photographs for personal pleasure when not being paid - exhibiting my personal work and working on large scale projects like Welsh From Everywhere. I also teach photography, and have delivered sessions to students in the University of South Wales, and Coleg Gwent.

Take a look at the range of photography services I offer below, then get in touch to see what I can do for you or click here to read more about me.

Photo-synthesis: Shooting Plants

During lockdown with little client work, I set myself some mini photographic projects to scratch my photo itch. As plants love light as much as photographers, I started there.

The Greeks gave us the words used to describe my profession. Photo means 'light' and graphy (from graphos) means 'drawing' - so photography is 'drawing with light'. Plants sussed out how to work with light way before the Greeks came on the scene of course, with Photosynthesis - which means putting together (with the help of) light. 

So, when my people photography dried up during the lockdown, I turned to my fellow light wranglers for a series of plant photographs. Most of these were taken in and around the garden in Newport, but a few come from further afield.

The Greeks gave us the words used to describe my profession. Photo means 'light' and graphy (from graphos) means 'drawing' - so photography is 'drawing with light'. Plants sussed out how to work with light way before the Greeks came on the scene of course, with Photosynthesis - which means putting together (with the help of) light. 

So, when my people photography dried up during the lockdown, I turned to my fellow light wranglers for a series of plant photographs. Most of these were taken in and around the garden in Newport, but a few come from further afield.


   .summary (string) =

During lockdown with little client work, I set myself some mini photographic projects to scratch my photo itch. As plants love light as much as photographers, I started there.
