Shoot at the BigC Centre | NNUH

The Big C Centre at the Norfolk & Norwich hospital, a truly warm homely space for those that need it.
It was a complete pleasure to be able to shoot in this wonderful space for such an inspiring Norfolk charity.

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.

In Sunny Lowestoft with Access Community

I was recently back in sunny (well, it was damp & cloudy actually… in fact the amazing backdrops made it feel sunny!) Lowestoft to work with the fabulous Access Community, shooting material of their passionate staff, amazing volunteers and dedicated service users.
 
I traveled to a few of their sites, meeting some really passionate people who are making change in the Suffolk community – certainly not an easy job in our time of constant social care cuts – but the determination shines through and it’s down to organisations like these that help to shape our communities for the better and I feel privileged to be able to provide some form of photographic record of this.

Enjoy a coffee & immerse yourself in Africa in Norwich

The feedback for the latest installment of Give a Child a Camera continues to be extremely positive.

I’m sure one or two of my students could have promising photographic careers, Thanks to those of you who were able to attend the supporters evening on the 4th November – it was lovely to chat and explain some of the work and I’m really pleased it seems to have gone down well.

The exhibition is on until the 1st December, plenty of time to pop into the lovely Playhouse, view the work, read the stories behind the images and have a coffee – unwind, relax and immerse yourself in Africa.

 

One Truly Inspirational Norfolk Person

One of the many pleasures of being a photographer that I’m always harping on about, is the wonderful people I get to meet.

One such inspirational and truly incredible person is David Moar.
David was the co-founder of the BIGC – the cancer charity for Norfolk & Waveney.
Suffering from ‘The Big C’ himself in the early 80’s he became frustrated with the long journey’s to London for treatment – move forward a few years and the BIGC cancer charity was formed, becoming instrumental in the research, development & treatment of cancer in Norfolk.

I spent an enjoyable afternoon in the company of David at his Norfolk home, shooting some soft editorial images. A real treat to be in such lovely company.

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.

Emotive Portraiture in Norfolk

The incredible variety of my work leads me to encounters with equally incredible and interesting people.
Late last year I was commissioned to create a body of emotive portraiture of people who support one of Norfolk’s best loved charities.

Throughout my journey around Norfolk I met so many passionate supporters of the charity, many of whom have been personally impacted in someway by the dreadful illness.
It was a privilege to meet the supporters and create some really lovelyimagery in their own environment.

I hope you enjoy a small selection of the work displayed here.

Run Around the City – Run Norwich

Sunday 6th August Norwich was awash with thousands of runners, as people of all abilities took to the atmospheric streets of one of Britain’s finest cities.

With the sun beating down, the runners got started by ex Norwich City legend Grant Holt from the open top bus on Gentlemans Walk.
Smiles were definitely the order of the day, as runners completed the 10k course, coming across the line to cheers of the huge crowd.
A thoroughly great day and a pleasure to photograph.
