Hero Image – Billionaire.com

Not Superman or Batman i’m afraid.

‘Hero Image’…the term used for images/illustrations/photographs that are placed in the most prominent position to grab readers when they land on a website.

Below are two examples that use two of my photos:

Billionaire.com Promotional Book

So 8 months work has resulted in a great website – www.billionaire.com – and our first print publication.

This is to be given to selected clients in their respective fields. We are due to publish a comprehensive photography book about our website as our first bi-annual publication, so this one is a taster for want of a better word.

Honoured to have got the front cover photo of the promo book and also the back cover.

Photos of the book are below. Enjoy.

Billionaire.com – NOW LIVE!

Piers Cunliffe Photography has been dormant for a little over 8 months and there are good reasons as to why. 

Everything has been ‘hush hush’ as I embarked on my new job as a full time in-house photographer to a rather extraordinary company – Billionaire.com

I started on 1st January 2012. A move to London and a commute to Mayfair on my trusty steed has changed my lifestyle and photography dramatically. Towards the end of 2011 I dabbled in fashion and lifestyle. Well, this proved to be one of the best moves to have taken, as I am now an exclusive photographer in fashion and lifestyle. I cover fashion shows, factory visits of luxury items being created, bespoke craftsmanship, editorials and in the near future, campaigns.

I can now shout out that I work for an online publication called Billionaire.com. We launched on the 31st August (last Friday) and the fruits of my labour (alongside Head of Visuals and Lead Photographer Andy Barnham) to be published on a regular basis. It has been a full on 8 months of solid photographing, editing, travelling and planning.

My main role as 2nd photographer for Billionaire.com is to help with all aspects of the business from the photography department. From accountancy to factory visits, from meetings to assisting on our major shoots, I am truly embedded into the world of photography in the luxury market.

We have our HQ in Singapore and work closely with the design team ensuring that the website runs smoothly and is topped up with relevant articles for the Ultra-High Net-Worth Individuals.

As I blog more and more you will gain an insight into what it is like to be a full time photographer for an online publication. I plan to show all the behind the scenes work from our photosoots and of course the articles to which I provide the photography for. Alongside this I will regularly update it with my inspirations and ideas that float around in my head.

A little about Billionaire.com:

“Championing authentic luxury, discernment, culture and social conscience, Billionaire.com is poised to become the indispensable lifestyle resource for high and ultra-high net worth individuals who think and act globally — ‘the global mobile elite’.”

What no better way to get you started by looking at the Billoinaire.com/Royal Academy soft launch I photographed – http://bll.nr/1fbbc
