Welcome to Red Images Photography
(Gloucestershire / Herefordshire / Worcestershire Based Photography)
Firstly, may I say Thank You for your interest in, and for visiting the Red Images Photography website. Should you live outside the Gloucestershire / Herefordshire / Worcestershire area then distance is not an obstacle, travel is all part of our journey together.
My ‘real’ name is Haydn, but I’m known generally as Taff, it’s what I answer to. I’m not 1st generation Welsh, but there is Welsh history in the family.
A few years ago now when I joined The Army Haydn wasn’t so well known as it is nowadays, and for some therefore proved to be somewhat difficult to remember! After a short debate Taff I became, and Taff I am still. Very few have ever called me Haydn, only my Mother (Bless her) springs immediately to mind (normally when I was in trouble, I do have to admit!). In my previous life (as I’ve mentioned) I was a member of HM Forces, and within HM Forces there is an ethos of integrity, honour, and respect. A ‘get the job done’ attitude, I still completely subscribe to all of those values in my life and in my work today.
As you explore the site you will see my work as a photographer covers almost every subject. Everything from portraiture of people/animals, to live music through to wedding photography, event and corporate photography is included. The style of all of my work (inc wedding photography and unless specifically required by you) is a relaxed informal approach. My preference is a candid reportage style of photography. I find this brings out a more relaxed subject and therefore a ‘better feel’ to the photographs.
Taking photographs is my passion. I do hope that my images will convey to you the feeling that I put into my work. Unlike some I don’t specialise in any one particular field of photography. I am a multi disciplined photographer. My abilities cover all of the disciplines of my art to a very high standard; I am diverse, and I am extremely competent. Seeing an image in the making is a skill I like to think I possess. In that way I can help you see exactly what it is that you want, and we can then portray your vision in the form that you desire.
In essence my job is to convert your requirements into beautiful images which will fulfil your needs completely, and of which you will be extremely proud. To produce beautiful images we need to work closely together. We need to fully communicate, we need to understand each other, and we need to go on a journey together to achieve that common aim!
Therefore if you like my work, my images, my style, my ethos, and what I do then please do get in touch, we can start our journey together with a chat and a cup of something warm, or a glass of something cold?
This is a creative website and therefore there may be photographs of naked/semi naked humans (of both genders), along with other ‘controversial’ subjects shown throughout it. Should you, or anyone around you find any of the subject matter ‘uncomfortable’ then it is your responsibility to use the necessary discretion and/or leave the site immediately.
My wife and I employed Taff to photograph our wedding after seeing his work at a friends house. He had taken their wedding pictures and when we talked to him his approach and style immediately appealed to us. We talked at length about what we wanted, and he did exactly what we asked him of him. Nothing was left to chance. We are exceptionally pleased with the results. We can recommend him to you completely.

Vintage Forever has employed Red Images Photography several times over the last year to help me showcase my work. Taff has the ability to see and suggest angles that produce striking pictures which help me advertise and sell my furniture extremely easily.

Post Script From Red Images Photography: Mrs Mckain has also used me to take some personal photos for her, alongside her business pictures. She said the following “A very talented photographer who captures the angles of the human body, the personality of a person, the character of an animal, the mood of an event and the detail of an object. Easy to work with, nothing too much trouble. He has talents, few possess!”

Being new to the online cake/baking business world I knew that I needed high quality eye catching pictures to advertise my business, I wasn’t really sure of exactly what I wanted though, or how to get it. When I approached Taff with my initial ideas he immediately made it very easy for me to ‘see’ what I needed; we worked as a team, both making suggestions, trying lots of different ‘looks’, all without me feeling any pressure, it was collaborative.
I was very happy with the results. Taff sent me the finished images promptly and in the correct format to use straight away on my website.
I would highly recommend Red Images Photography and will definitely be using them again when I introduce new ranges/products.

The photographs are fantastic! Haydn’s professionalism and photography skills are second to none! I needed product images for a customer’s website, he understood my creative vision and produced exactly what I wanted. The photos have turned out perfectly and my customer was extremely happy. I would not hesitate to work with Haydn again and would be happy to recommend him to others.

Taff was absolutely amazing. He captured all of our amazing moments of our big day and making them in to the perfect memories. Taff has such a great eye for angles. Working with the surroundings he has he knows the perfect moment to take an image. Super easygoing and approachable. He blends in to the crowd, mingling with the guests which meant he could capture those natural, relaxed pictures. We are so pleased with all of our wedding images!

After a friends recommendation I contacted Red Images Photography regarding some publicity photos for my takeaway business website. From start to finish they provided a professional and attentive service. They listened to what I had in mind for the images and provided exactly, if not better images than I suggested. I would have no hesitation in recommending or using them again for any future work.
