Robert Powell

Writer – Photographer – Web Designer


Working for Business and the Community


My name is Robert Powell, and this is my website. From my home in Sedbergh in south–east Cumbria I offer a number of media– and communications–related services: including web design, commercial photography, tour guiding, copy–writing and translation.

Web Design

I provide a highly personalised website design and management service for small businesses in tourism and other industries. Click here for examples and terms.

Commercial Photography

Most of my photography is now in support of my web design business. However I have also illustrated my own magazine and newspaper articles and supplied various small businesses, local authorities and third sector groups with images for printed publicity material. Click here to see examples.

Copy Writing & PR

I spent many years working for BBC Radio 4 as a freelance, and have also contributed to national newspapers and magazines. I also do public relations work for small businesses and campaigning groups, especially in relation to traditional broadcast and print media. Click here to read some of my work.

Translation from Danish & French

Although translation has never been my main occupation, I have long enjoyed studying and using languages. I myself translate material from Danish and French into English. However, if you are stuck for another language, I may know someone else who can help you. Click here for further details.

Tour Guiding

I offer a group tour guiding service for coach operators in the Lake District. Click here for further details.
