Planning applications: projecting your image.

 

Prior to starting this photo service I worked with Scottish Natural Heritage for over 10 years and was involved in preparing SNH’s planning advice to  local authorities or Scottish Government. Much, but not all, of this was related to windfarm or wind turbine applications. 

High quality photographs may be required either by best practice or as a requirement of your planning application. These provide planning staff and other interested parties with unequivocal photo evidence of a site's characteristics, location and layout. I provide photos which are guaranteed to meet with specific planning requirements and also recognised best practice. The photographs can be of an interior, exterior or a landscape - or any combination. 



 For each location I provide the following photos: 
1 raw, 1 jpeg, 1 pdf taken with full frame Nikon D800 with 50mm Nikon
lens. The raw photo will contain all photo data including gps, compass bearing and elevation. No raw photos will be cropped, manipulated or otherwise enhanced. I will also provide you with a jpeg which will show a panorama of the location.
This can be useful to illustrate general features to, for example, a planning
officer not familiar with the site.

Due to their file size, all photos will be provided on CD only, although low resolution thumbnails will be available online at a secure website.

For planning purposes you will normally require the same photo in various formats. (see 'Jargon' for an explanation of these.) As photo evidence a raw photo with accompanying metadata is supplied as proof of location, date and camera lens. 

For general publication (print or CD) photos saved in either jpeg or pdf format are used.
