CASE STUDY

Butler Court, Kilkenny's No.1 guesthouse

Top quality photography as part of the package

www.butlercourt.com - Kilkenny's highly-rated (by Trip Advisor members) city-centre B&B in a peaceful courtyard setting. Design, overall branding and all photography by Bigger Picture at Bigger Picture. Over 110,000 website page views since launching! Top rating by Google searches. Bucking the trend, the owners built extra accommodation in 2006 to cope with demand! See excellent live Trip Advisor guest reviews on the site which keep them consistently at the very top of the Kilkenny accommodation charts.

Sample websites:


www.garrisonwaterside.com - Co Carlow's leading riverside holiday centre for self-catering houses & Guesthouse with use of day boat plus new restaurant & bar. Design and all photography by Bigger Picture.

Threads of Green Fabrics - suppliers of materials for dressmakers and costumiers worldwide - photography for 600 plus fabric samples and abstract shots for the online shop. Kilkenny-based established business with an international reputation. The challenge here was to realistically depict reflective and metallic fabrics online for the web designers - something few fabric suppliers have attempted. Broadband advised for this database-driven site.

The importance of good images

All of us have seen the dreary product snaps, taken by the local press man on his (rainy) day off. What does that say to your customers? "I can't be bothered to put any effort into it just for you to look at"

As Advertising guru David Ogilvy once said: "The consumer is not an idiot - she is your wife".

Simple, isn't it?

I offer top quality photography, combined with simple and effective web design to get your message across. When you combine good images with straightforward design, people spend longer on your site and therefore increase your chances of sales.

In Ireland, word gets around like in no other place. This can work to your advantage.

Pay Per Click - why it doesn't pay

Pay Per Click (PPC) will only yield results while you continue to pay. If you stop, the adverts vanish. Even when the adverts appear, only 18% of searchers click on paid adverts. Many general searches are not done by potential customers but you still pay when they click.

The goal for a business website is to be listed on 'organic' or unpaid seaches. This is what we specialise in doing. It not only works, it works out cheaper than most PPC campaigns and your website stays up there with only minor tweaking each month. We don't waste your time* with Social Media campaigns which only work for transient, shallow advertising stunts. *We do however recommend YouTube for good incoming links which costs you nothing to set up.

Business portraiture:

Portrait of Head Chef Dominique Dayot. Using Photoshop, I masked out and desaturated the background, which was a bit too distracting. Natural light, colour balanced to offset ambient light.

Portrait of Owner / Head Chef, Dominique Dayot. I have desturated the colour of the background to emphasis the chef.

USING PHOTO COMPOSITES

Back in 1984, my Photography Degree show was based on making photo composites (or photomontage). In those pre-digital days it was a case of literally cut & paste and darkroom techniques. I have specialised in this ever since using high end Apple Mac equipment.

In 2001, I won 2 gold medals from the Irish Photographic Federation for my photomontage work. Photo composites allow an image to convey much more than a simple record. What I like about them is the layers of meaning they can convey. The technique can equally be applied to a product range. The above banner image represents a brief history of Ireland, from the early religious and 'Big House' era to modern-day heritage trail symbols. All component photographs are from my stock photography collection and were taken over several years in many different locations in Ireland.
Like painting, photo composites allow layers of meaning to be incorporated into an image but with the authority of a photograph.

About our logo

Think Big - Think Bigger Picture

The beautiful peregrine falcon is one of Nature's fastest flyers. From it's pitch above the earth it can see for miles. It is the peregrine's broad overview and supreme eye for detail which prompted Bigger Picture to choose the peregrine for it's own logo. You can share the vision with Bigger Picture web & photography packages.
