Car Share Shoot

This was an enjoyable shoot in the city suburbs, of a community care share project which has recently launched.
It’s always a challenge when you arrive at a location and the rain is beating down and it’s freezing cold… of course, the challenge comes in creating that spring or early autumn look and making sure the volunteer models feel comfortable and look ‘at home’ in the images.

Part of the enjoyment of photography is not knowing what is around the corner – certainly keeps one on their toes!

Wonderful Winter Wedding in Suffolk

I’m delighted to share some further images from the lovely wedding of Gary & Tina, held at the stunning Woodhall Manor, near Woodbridge.

An intimate winter wedding was something I’ve never had the pleasure of photographing, but WOW, what an idea… everything just seemed to work – although the light disappears quickly, it does bring other options to the table (eg, sparkler /night images) and thankfully we were blessed with some lovely light and dry weather.

Wishing you much happiness Tina & Gary x

Summer Shoot on the Norfolk Broads

With the wet and cold weather firmly set in for Winter,  it seems suitable to look back a few months on some of my shoots on the Norfolk Broads, in particular three wonderful days on the Northern & Southern Broads, photographing cyclists, holidaymakers, day trippers, horse riders and locals, all of whom made the summer so much fun for me & my camera gear!

Fun Advertising Shoot in a Suffolk Warehouse

Earlier this year I had the pleasure of popping along to a warehouse in Suffolk to shoot images for an upcoming advertising campaign… a gritty and tough image was the brief.

Finding a dark corner of the warehouse, I setup a temporary studio, three strobes, a couple of reflectors and a trusty tripod.

What followed was an interesting shoot with a range of power tools and props, with images supplied to the advertising agency ready for their national campaign.

A Wonderful Wedding in Woodbridge

On a beautiful cold winters day, Tina & Gary ‘tied the knot’ in the wonderful surroundings of Woodhall Manor.

While the winter light disappears quickly, it does bring other opportunities for the photographer!

Thankfully, Tina came prepared with enough sparklers for each guest and with the guests happy to brave the freezing conditions for a few minutes we created a wonderfully atmospheric scene to celebrate their union.

Wishing you a happy lovely life together.

Norfolk & Norwich Festival Supporters Evening

Last week the wonderful Norfolk & Norwich festival held a supporters evening at the charming Norfolk Club in Norwich.
The evening presents a chance for the charity to raise new funds for the forthcoming 2019 festival as well as providing a wonderful networking opportunity for individuals with like-minded interests. Emotive footage from the 2018 event was shown, as well as some hints for the 2019 festival, which promises to be fabulous!

In Sunny Lowestoft with Access Community

I was recently back in sunny (well, it was damp & cloudy actually… in fact the amazing backdrops made it feel sunny!) Lowestoft to work with the fabulous Access Community, shooting material of their passionate staff, amazing volunteers and dedicated service users.
 
I traveled to a few of their sites, meeting some really passionate people who are making change in the Suffolk community – certainly not an easy job in our time of constant social care cuts – but the determination shines through and it’s down to organisations like these that help to shape our communities for the better and I feel privileged to be able to provide some form of photographic record of this.

Enjoy a coffee & immerse yourself in Africa in Norwich

The feedback for the latest installment of Give a Child a Camera continues to be extremely positive.

I’m sure one or two of my students could have promising photographic careers, Thanks to those of you who were able to attend the supporters evening on the 4th November – it was lovely to chat and explain some of the work and I’m really pleased it seems to have gone down well.

The exhibition is on until the 1st December, plenty of time to pop into the lovely Playhouse, view the work, read the stories behind the images and have a coffee – unwind, relax and immerse yourself in Africa.
