Commercial Phoptography 2014
...Whilst the sun was still shining it was the perfect time for Fairhaven Housing Association to get lots of new photographs taken for their advertising. FHA is a specialist company providing retirement housing for over 20 years. They currently have 6 schemes throughout Lancashire... managing comfortable, secure and affordable retirement accommodations. Their aim is to provide independent living for older people, whilst ensuring that help and support is constantly at hand.
When I was asked to take the new photographs for their updated website I was really looking forward to doing something a little different. I was very grateful for the opportunity to have the chance to photograph the housing, as this is certainly a subject area I have never touched upon. When I arrived at the first scheme (Crownlee, Penwortham) all I could think is that 'I definitely want to be living here when I am older'....it’s so beautiful and every member of staff was really friendly and helpful. As I then went to view all the other schemes I quickly realised that they each had their own characteristics and where situated in different locations to suit every type of person. I would certainly recommend these accommodations to those who are older and need that little bit of help. The community centres are great for getting to meet to new people and socialising, not to mention there is usually always something going on entertainment wise and the dinners they provide are very tasty and cheap.
Anyways I had a fantastic time working on this project and I hope these new images will really help update their advertising. Below are a few of the photos from each scheme.
