Earlier in 2014, we created a new image library of on-brand photos – all available to members via the Visit Isles of Scilly Flickr account. These are photos which we allow anyone to use who are looking to promote or write about the Isles of Scilly.
Most of the photography was taken in 2013 when the Islands’ Partnership organised two photo shoots to update our photography bank. Our ambition is to update the library every two years, budgets allowing. We will also seek to supplement our professional photography with excellent quality amateur photographs. Often we are contacted by photographers visiting the islands and we also recently held a Photography Competition in association with the Isles of Scilly AONB Partnership to find some new and distinctive photos.
You can also view promotional film footage about the islands via the Isles of Scilly You Tube Channnel. Currently there are videos highlighting particular aspects of the islands, as well as the islands themselves. The film footage itselft is more than two years old – so in September 2014, more footage was filmed across the islands to augment and refresh our current offering. This will cut into existing footage and made into a short over-arching film to be launched in time for the new year 2015 promotions.
