Photo​​graphy  

Before becoming a qualified archaeologist, Richard Scott Jones trained as a professional commercial and industrial photographer for 10 years in the late 1980s, when photography was still confined to hard roll film such as 35mm, 120mm and 5" x 4" or 10" x 8" plate film and dark room chemical processing and enlarger techniques.

Of course, since the late 1990s and early 2000s digital photography has advanced so fast that film photography is sadly now confined to specialists. The advent of digital photography and photo software has revolutionised the photographic industry with creativity merely a click of a button away.

Below is a small selection of photographs that Richard has appropriated over the years in the course of archaeological work and play. A number of these are original hard film shots, but most are digital ones having been shot on either a Canon, Nikon or Olympus DSLR and some edited and enhanced in photo softwares. Further photographs will be added in due course.

HRS Wales has recently purchased a professional UAV drone for landscape photography as well as for archaeological use and it is hoped that over the coming months more landscape aerial photographs of historic monuments and archaeological sites will be appropriated and displayed in the gallery below. This is still several months away however, until the required UAV training and permissions for commercial use have been acquired.

HRS Wales offers Professional Photography & Graphic Design services  for the Heritage Industry for education and promotion.
