Shropshire Photographer Showcases Skills

A Shropshire-based wedding photographer was selected by an American camera lens company to showcase their brand new Sol45 lens.

Paul Wilkinson, Shropshire photographer at Twig’s Branch Photography, applied for the project run by Lensbaby, in which he was personally selected along with nine others to showcase their new camera lens.

To enter, Paul had to submit a brief of an idea for a photoshoot that would take him out of his comfort zone. His photoshoot images, as displayed below, are the outcome of the sponsorship project.

Images from the urban ballet/fallen angel themed photoshoot have since featured on the brand’s website and social media and have even been used to promote Lensbaby’s own events stateside.

Paul said of the experience: “Knowing that a company as creative and inspiring as Lensbaby have used our images outside of the scope of the original project, for their wider brand promotion, is hugely humbling. It’s so strange to think people in the USA are seeing images from little old us. We are hugely grateful for this opportunity.”
