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

Water, Mills & Marshes Performance

On Wednesday 9 May the Marina Theatre in Lowestoft saw a live performance by pupils of Lowestoft Sixth Form College and Pakefield High School when they concluded their project to compose, record and perform an album of songs inspired by the Broads. The finished album now kicks off a new competition which will see the pupil’s work go ‘on tour’

The pupils drew their inspiration for the album from a trip to Halvergate Marshes where they were able to spend time immersed in the Halvergate area of the Broads National Park. The experience was then used as a muse from which to draw inspiration as they took time in the classroom to work individually and in groups to compose, write and produce their own score of music.

Beautiful Pre Wedding Shoot | The Boathouse, Norfolk

Recently I had the pleasure of photographing Sam & Becs prior to their wedding this June.

On a rather hot day we popped along to the charming The Boat House and enjoyed a fun hour chatting about their upcoming wedding and shooting some lovely images – whilst topping up our tans!

The setting was perfect and although the venue was heaving (being a bank holiday) we managed to find some private space with fabulous views of the broad!

Give A Child A  Camera Exhibition | Edinburgh

Give A Child A  Camera Exhibition | Edinburgh

This exhibition illustrates the latest work of the students in Southwest Uganda who were part of Give a Child a Camera V3 in 2018. Working with a group of children whose mothers are largely sex workers on the Ugandan/Rwanda border, this new project has without doubt been one of the most moving to date. This insightful, vibrant and truthful collection of images documents the children’s lives using their own photographs. See around 15 beautiful images that the children in this part of Uganda have shot using 35mm film cameras over a 3 week program working with Julian Claxton

The Norfolk & Norwich Festival…what an opening night!

Friday evening Norwich played host to the opening reception of the fabulous Norfolk & Norwich Festival where French company Transe Express led crowds through the city in a whirlwind of music, dance & acrobatics as thousands gathered around the City Hall & The Forum, Norwich to celebrate this rather energetic and atmospheric opening….

Incredible how a festival such as the Norfolk & Norwich can uplift the area, bringing in wonderful art, culture and generally a feeling of happiness and brightness during what are becoming ever more tough times for the vulnerable in our society.

Enjoy the festival & celebrate our wonderful multicultural outlook.

Norwich & Norfolk Eco Awards 10th Anniversary

The Norwich and Norfolk Eco Awards celebrated their 10th Anniversary last month with a wonderful awards evening at St Andrews Hall in the city.

It was a pleasure to attend the awards and photograph the winners, as well as hear an interesting talk from TV star Karren Cannard (The Rubbish Diet) about the difference we can all make.

The scheme, collaboratively organised by Norwich City Council and Norfolk County Council, annually celebrates outstanding environmental achievements.
Originally, the awards were only open to organisations, however, the categories have since broadened and prizes are now given for outstanding eco-food producer and eco-home.
Applicants in all categories must be able to demonstrate a passion for environmentally friendly practice and energy efficiency.
