Photographer Payerboyo transforms iconic Cardiff landmark into British holiday scene

Paperboyo has transformed Cardiff’s Senedd building into a British holiday scene.

The photographer – who is known for his creative ‘paper cut-out’ photography – has celebrated a summer of staycations with a new study showing that 40% of Brits are happy to wait until next year for a foreign trip.

His new piece transforms the iconic landmark into an image of two friends reading a map to find their way and explore the area.

Paperboyo – real name Rich McCor – said: “Usually I would have had lots of international travel plans booked across the summer so this is a little unusual for me!

“But I’m really excited to take this chance to explore more of UK this year and see what other creative shots I can come up with.

“I wanted to create an image that celebrated UK travel and turn a recognised building into something unexpected.”

To capture this shot, Paperboyo used Sony’s new α7C camera – the world’s smallest and lightest camera body – and the 24-105mm F4 G lens.

He added: “When I’m out and about and capturing shots like this it’s really important to have a lightweight camera body and lens with me so I’m not lugging heavy kit around.

“I used the Sony α7C and 24-105 F4 G lens which are both really compact so I know I am always ready to capture a shot when I’m exploring and get inspired without having to compromise on the image quality.”

He has also released a ‘behind the scenes’ video on Sony Europe’s YouTube channel to show fans how his captures his content.

Kelly Knussen – Head of Imaging, Sony UK and Ireland at Sony – added: “We’ve been delighted to work with Rich to put our new α7C to the test.

“His cut-outs show the endless creative possibilities that are available on our doorstep, and we hope the ‘how-to’ video inspires people to capture their own creative imagery.”
