Primary or Secondary Research

For my research and analysis, I didn’t know if I wanted to do primary or secondary research as I didn’t know which one was better. Therefore I have decided to do some research myself 0n primary and secondary research, to see which was one is better and I can the do my research.

Primary Research – Advantages

  • The information the researcher has collected and worked with personally.
  • It also is directly to that persons research and study
  • The researcher controls when and how much information is collected. This also means that the researcher can be asked questions about its source and reliability later on in the process.

Primary Research – Disadvantages

Secondary Research – Advantages

  • The information is really easy to access, like a local library and online such as google.
  • Some secondary data collection is often used to help set the stage for primary secondary, making the two research methods work really well together.
  • As well as it is easy to access it is also very cheap, as most of the research is online or at the local library which is always free.




We got given a week to a create a presentation on our clients and what we were going to do like a week by week plan. I did a power presentation just because I feel like this kind of presentations can get across really easy and straight to the point.

The slide show below is just a preview on what I have started:

When I showed my presentation to the rest of my fellow students, I got some feed back from them saying that I should focus more on the things that the client needs first as my project is such a big project, as its a fairly new business and needs quite a lot of things doing, this is all explained in the brief they have wrote to me in the email.

The feedback that I got back helped me very well as I can now sort my time and make arrangements with my client for when I can go into the shop and start taking photographs for my test shoots an so on.

Overall, I think my photographs turned out really well, as I feel like all the photographs are what the client asked for as all they wanted were photographs for their website and Facebook as well as them having images for their personalise website, which should be a friendly, calm vibe, which is what I think I’ve created.

Mood Boards

When I got my brief from my client, I didn’t really have any ideas what I wanted to do as the brief was kind of short and very basic.

I had a look at other peoples briefs and blogs just to see if I was on the right track, which I was so I carried on with my PowerPoint presentation with all my images that I had collected from google which would be my secondary research box ticked.

When I was collecting all my research I didn’t really use any primary research, I mostly used secondary, which was mostly google images and google just in general.

Down below will be screenshots of some of my mood boards that I have put together for a sort of an idea how I would like to take my test shots and maybe for my final shoot, and then I would be able to take my photographs and edit them and get ready for the deadline and then show them to my client.

I did these mood boards, so when I come to take the actual photographs, I wont be wasting time waiting for ideas to come into my head as I will have already have some with all the research I have done before hand.
