Lovely light, bright corporate space

Recently I had the pleasure of returning to one of my regular clients, shooting some new lifestyle corporate imagery in their wonderfully bright clean environment.

During these shoots, I always to try to keep lighting to around two led studio strobes and the beautiful range of Nikon primes (god I love those lenses, despite the horrendous price!)

Scientific Photographic Shoot

The variety of my photographic shoots is hugely evident in some recent commissions, which have seen me don a lab coat, gloves and shoe covers, working in a highly sensitive and unbelievably interesting scientific environment.

Obviously space is limited, so i shoot with one strobe and the gorgeous 35mm f1.4 lens, allowing me to pull in as much of that natural light as possible.

Wishing everyone a peaceful and healthy 2019

2018 has been another cracking year for my photography, projects and development.
I’ve crossed paths with so many inspirational people who have had great stories to tell and I feel privileged to have shot images through the UK, Europe & Africa and to have continued to develop my project Give a Child a Camera

One of the most moving moments of 2018 was meeting Musa, (pictured) in Southwest Uganda.
Babyowanba Musa, an orphan living above the town of Katuna. He lives in a small house with an elderly lady who took him in. She digs in the fields every day for around 3500 UGX (Ugandan Shillings),
“We are not sure of the lifespan of Musa” says Mukagatare Jeninah, “he has HIV and it is difficult to look after”
I felt incredibly moved by the passion of the elderly lady who took young Musa into her home – for no other reason than he was on his own, by the local NGO who supplies the ARV drugs to control the health of the those suffering with the horrendous virus and lastly by young Musa, who accompanied me on my walks around the community and taught me (despite my numerous visits to Africa) a lot about living in rural Africa.

The health of young Musa is being monitored and providing he continues to take ARV drugs he should have a relatively stable life ahead – I will be revisiting Musa in 2019.

Wishing everyone a peaceful and healthy 2019

Norfolk Schools Opera

Last month, Norfolk Schools Opera held the first opening performance at the Theatre Royal – where schools came together for a day of workshops and performances. – The project will eventually culminate in some outstanding performances in 2019 – Personally I can’t wait to see how the children’s ideas will transform the theatre stage!

“2018-19 Norwich Theatre Royal and Norfolk Music Hub are collaborating in a year-long programme, working with hundreds of pupils, teachers, and young gifted and talented musicians from across Norfolk”

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!
