Cambridge Design and Construction Awards

Held in the wonderful grounds of St Catherine College in Cambridge the Cambridge Design and Construction Awards took place last week, showcasing truly awe-inspiring design and building projects throughout Cambridgeshire.

Watching the presentations is fascinating. It certainly offers food for thought and I often come away with ideas for building projects, albeit on a significantly different financial footing.

Long Weekend in Rabat

We’ve all heard of Marrakech, but how many of you have visited Rabat, Morocco’s capital?

It’s a lovely place for a quick weekend getaway and just a short affordable flight from the UK.
We had an absolute ball when we visited – staying in a souk in true old Moroccan style, we thoroughly enjoyed the experience and the ability to visit on the excellent train service both Meknes & Casablanca.

Fabis | South Western Uganda

Fabis.

I met this interesting lady last year while visiting some old friends in Western Uganda. I was truly captivated by the muted colours and wilderness of scene that unfolded in front of me.

30 year old Fabis has two children and works around 8 hours a day in the fields and banana groves earning 2500 ugx (50p) per day, in the village of Kachwekano. She suffers with bad eyesight.

Sunrise at Oulton Broad

Some truly wonderful colours were evident this week during the winter sunrise.
On a morning which I had free, I popped out early onto Oulton Broad Marshes and captured a few frames, as the sun broke through. I particularly love the image of the reeds, as the sun is bursting through – rather emotive!

Fresh Looking Group Shots in Cambs

Group shots can often offer up several challenges.. In days gone by, photographers would typically line people up – one row standing, one row sitting and bang – that was the shot… thankfully, those times are largely gone and it’s enjoyable to use the space and furniture and create pleasing visuals that portray groups of people in a slightly more interesting way.

A Lovely Sunrise on the Gallops in Newmarket

Late 2018 I headed out to Newmarket to capture images for a client. Leaving home early, I got to the gallops bang on time, to capture this soft beautiful image of the horses in the distance, coming down the famous hill towards the Suffolk town.

It’s all about planning, getting the time right and a touch of luck!

Charity Portraiture in Norwich

I had the pleasure of visiting the newly refurbished BigC centre in Norwich to shoot some portraiture. Walking through the door, it feels like home, a terrifically well planned space, with quiet areas, social spaces & relaxing gardens. A big credit to all connected with this fabulous centre for improving the care and social well being of people needing to use the centre.
