Beautiful Wedding at the Boathouse | Norfolk

Couples getting married at the moment are truly blessed with wonderful weather!
At the end of June Becky & Sam had their wonderful wedding at The Boat House on a baking hot day with wonderful deep blue sky!

A truly lovely day spent by the river in a celebration with their friends & family.

Celebrate Norfolk Day…..

To celebrate Norfolk Day, I thought it was rather suitable for me to share a photograph that I took nearly 14 years ago of Eric Edwards who could quite happily be described as ‘Mr Norfolk’.
 
This photograph was taken using my beloved Hasselblad 500cm using Fuji Provia. I was an aspiring freelancer at the time, trying to cut my teeth in the world of photography.
 
I was lucky enough to work with Eric for 18 months, I would regularly visit him at How Hill and spend the day in his company, listening to stories and relishing the opportunity to be with a true Norfolk legend.
I created a really intimate body of work and in many ways these images helped to launch my freelance career.
 
Thank you Eric and rest in peace (Eric sadly passed away in 2012)

Prince William returns to Norfolk for charity polo match

Prince William returns to Norfolk for charity polo match

Friday in the heart of Norfolk I had the pleasure of being the only photographer at the Norfolk Polo Royal Charity match at Langley Abbey Estate, which saw HRH The Duke of Cambridge join team Tarmac at GRS.

“Prince William, in his role as patron of charities SkillForce and the English Schools Swimming Association, took part in the Norfolk Polo Royal Charity match at Langley Abbey Estate.

The match was closely fought throughout and ended in a draw with a score of 4-4-. The Duke of Cambridge played alongside England International player Peter Webb, Scottish player and adventurer Robert Melville, and Clive Reid from Guards Polo Club.

Owner of Langley Abbey and Norfolk Polo Director, Rebecca Townsend, said: “It’s a real privilege and delight to watch the Duke play. It’s also a very special opportunity to help support the work that these amazing charities carry out.”

Leading construction solutions business, Tarmac sponsored the Royal Team and construction aggregates firm GRS sponsored the opposition.”

Chelmsford Academic Photo Shoot

Enjoyed a wonderful shoot in Chelmsford recently, with the detailed brief asking me to shoot a range of portraiture of academics in their area of research for future editorial and pr use.

Not only were the subject matter great to work with, but I found myself becoming immersed in the stories of their research and development.

A group of incredibly interesting individuals.

A Sunday in Southwold…..

Tour Ride Sportive Southwold July 1st 2018

A Sunday in Southwold…..
The Tour Ride came to the sunny and unbelievably hot town of Southwold on Sunday for the official sportive accompanying the Women’s Tour & Tour of Britain.

Hundreds of cyclists took to the country lanes of Suffolk to join in and feel like a pro for the day.
The cyclists, (sun cream applied!) tackled the headwind, sun baked tarmac and sharp Suffolk hills to finish with a sprint through the closed roads of Southwold and finally enjoy a cold Adnams.

Thanks for all the smiles & laughter throughout the day cyclists!

Stunning Thursday at the #RNS18

A fab Thursday at The Royal Norfolk Show saw hundreds visit the Broads National Park area of the county show… Lovely to see so many people, especially those younger folks becoming engaged with the Broads.
The free activities & especially the canoeing went down a storm – what better way to enjoy the sun than on a lake at East Anglia’s top county show.

Give a Child a Camera Edinburgh exhibition is up!

Give a Child a Camera Edinburgh exhibition is up! Huge thanks to Wex Photo Video and in particular Emma and the marketing team for showing such passion for the project and for assisting & providing a great store venue. A special mention also to store manager Francesco, who equally demonstrated so much love & passion for the children’s incredible work.
It feels wonderful to be able to display work from the children in Southwest Uganda in the Scottish capital – I know for a fact they can’t believe their images are on display for the world to see.
The mini exhibition is up until the end of June, so please, if you’re in the area do pop in and enjoy the work of 15 children.
Plans for #giveachildacamera 2019 are well underway…..

Creative Annual Report Photography

When a call comes in for a shoot, asking you to capture images for the forthcoming annual report, naturally a certain style / preconception comes to mind… within a very short amount of time and following a meeting with the dynamic Chief Executive those preconceptions were blown out of the water as Emma’s plans for a dynamic, vibrant and inclusive Annual Report came to life.

Working with the staff of Access Community Trust
volunteers and service users I had great fun over a day and half shooting images in different settings around the town of Lowestoft – by the end of the second day the report begun to come to life – a selection of vibrant images captured the passion and commitment of the staff, the self-belief of volunteers and service users and provided a perfect visual story to the report, continuing their amazing inclusive commitment.

“The making of” is also available to view
