How we've helped Thomas Frost Photography
Thomas is a wedding and commercial photographer, looking to extend his services to video production, based in Falmouth.
I’m continuing to try to pivot the business a little, in looking at more business-to-business content that see us producing showreels and video content to help with getting Cornwall ready to open up once again.
How we helped
With the wedding industry feeling the brunt of COVID-19, the past 12-months have been challenging for Falmouth photographer, Thomas Frost.
The former scientist turned commercial photographer has found a silver lining, of sorts, and been able to use the pause in operations to get a number of odd jobs done, however the past year has certainly presented a set of challenges on the professional front. Although Thomas realises that things could certainly have been a lot worse.
“It has definitely been difficult, I was expecting to shoot around 60 weddings last year but ended up doing around 30. I’ve done quite well, considering. I know lots of people who only shot two or three, if any,” he said.
With the Government’s roadmap in place and weddings booked in once again for the summer months, Thomas is gearing up for a busy period once lockdown ends. However, uncertainty still remains as far as the industry returning to a degree of normalcy as a whole.
“It’s tricky to say what it will look like. On paper it looks incredibly busy, but it doesn’t take much for that to suddenly change. It could be busy, which will bring one set of issues, or incredibly quiet, which will bring with it a whole other set of issues,” Thomas said.
Working with the Skills Hub on forward thinking and projecting ahead for whatever the future of working may look like, Thomas is looking to shift focus and pivot his business to include more in-house video production.
“I’m continuing to try to pivot the business a little, in looking at more business-to-business content that see us producing showreels and video content to help with getting Cornwall ready to open up once again.
“It’s good to know that there’s stuff out there like the Skills Hub who can help,” he said.
