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.

Meet The Buyer | Offshore Wind

A successful ‘Meet the buyer’ event was held at Norwich City FC last week – a chance for Norfolk businesses to be part of the huge Norfolk Vanguard offshore wind project.
Using local suppliers is key to the development and smooth implementation of the wind farm, keeping money in the local economy and building upon the expertise and infrastructure that is already here.
 
From my point of view, it’s interesting to hear about the future of wind energy and how the county is tooling itself up to be one of the leaders in this industry.

Fabulous corporate shoot in Cambridgeshire

A couple of months ago I met a group of lovely friendly business people, running a recruitment firm in Cambridgeshire. – I paid a visit to them in 2017, however, with a few new starters they wanted some fresh imagery.

An enjoyable morning shoot followed by.. plenty of laughter, smiles and work.

Fancy a quick snack..? Catering Shoot | Cambridge College

Fancy a quick snack..? maybe queen leafcutter ants,  buffalo worm and cricket falafel hashara or zataar flatbread made with cricket flour? My advice would be to book a dining spot at the fabulous St Johns College in Cambridge.

Talk about pushing boundaries… the chefs and apprentices at the college embrace the chance to work with some unusual and creative ingredients to create some rather memorable dishes!
A few weeks ago I was working on a stock of visuals for their new marketing material.
I love working at the colleges, their history, architecture and ambience is quite something.
It’s always a challenge to get good lighting, especially in kitchen environments where it can be rather hectic – but a challenge is all part of the job.

I particularly love the image of the waiting staff in the grand dining hall – a few strobes helped to present a strong visual.

Light, Bright Corporate Shoot

I remember the days (gosh I sound somewhat old now!) when I was first commissioned – many years ago – to shoot corporate material. I would arrive and be greeted with bland walls, laminate furniture and horrible lighting.

These days companies – certainly those forward-thinking organisations, have created wonderfully light, bright and attractive places of work. Even older properties have been transformed with colour and those nice little touches. It is really good to see organisations investing in their employees, considering their wellbeing and of course enabling photographers to grab some excellent frames.

This recent work is shot in the company’s offices in Norwich and Cambridge and as with the vast majority of my work, was a joy to shoot.

Working with a Norfolk Charity

For the past year I’ve been working with one of Norfolk’s key charities, creating a set of visuals, moving them onto the next level with regards to their photographic presence in an ever increasing and competitive charity industry. From muddy cross country running, thrilling winter skydiving, long bicycle rides to getting covered in coloured paint and jumping from a crane over the Forum in Norwich, it’s certainly been one hell of a year. Having just had the pleasure of viewing the new Big C fundraising site and handling some of their new promo and fundraising packs, I’m thrilled to see the images come to life in such a way.

The new Big C fundraising site is available at https://lnkd.in/gG9vFUm #charity #bigc #norfolk #norwich #event #photography #eastanglia #fundraising
