Diversity and being adaptable

  • By Jonathan Banks

In times like these it is beneficial to be diverse and adaptable. If you look at my website then you will see reportage, travel photography and portraits for magazines; annual report stock photography, portraits and commercial photography for corporate clients; architecture and interiors for designers; and humanitarian and campaign photography for charitable organisations. I really enjoy the range of work.

I do not think this dilutes my focus, in fact I believe that it is a strength for the people I work with, and for my position in the professional world of photography. I apply the same enthusiasm of seeking to capture the best photos possible for every assignment. This seems to have worked so far, receiving international awards in all sectors of my work.

It means I can supply clients with every aspect of photography. So, as well as photographing interiors and architecture, I can also photograph the designers behind the projects. Here are some of the creatives that I have photographed alongside photographing the architect’s projects.

The British Red Cross supporting people in crisis

  • By Jonathan Banks

The British Red Cross has supported people in crisis for over 150 years. I have been supporting them with my photography for over sixteen years. I have photographed everything from disaster relief to Royal events. They are, and always will be, the organisation that I most enjoy working with.

The work that I have witnessed has been amazing and the people that I have worked are incredible. The British Red Cross is always on standby to help with UK emergencies and the coronavirus is no exception. 

Over 70,000 people have signed up as community reserve volunteers for the British Red Cross, with more joining the Movement every day.

You could be doing anything from helping at your local food bank to playing a vital role in easing the pressure on the NHS by delivering essential goods and supplies. 

There are many ways of supporting the British Red Cross.
