Congratulations to Norwich Market!

Congratulations to all at Norwich Market for winning Best Large Outdoor Market this week at The Great British Market Awards 2019
 
A spokesman for the National Association of British Market Authorities (NAMBA), which organises the awards, described the city market as ‘a phoenix rising from the ashes’.
 
Credit should also be given to Norwich City Council – who have really been instrumental in the turnaround over the last couple of years, investing time & money into the operation to create such a wonderful vibrant market.
 
in 2018 I was commissioned to capture a bank of imagery of the market & stall holders – what started as a straightforward commission turned into wonderful experience, meeting fabulous people, eating great food and capturing a great collection of visuals.

Norwich Market | Shoot Two

Here is the second installment from my shoot on Norwich Market earlier this year for one of my clients.

The first set of images received such a good reception, that I’ve decided to showcase another set of images from the amazing local market, featuring stall holders, produce and a couple of market views – I hope you enjoy the images – as previously mentioned, I thoroughly enjoyed spending time on the market, getting to know both stall holders and customers.

From a 70p cuppa, fine roasted coffee, delicious handmade treats, flavorsome sausages, finished with beautiful floral bouquets – what more could you ask for from your amazing local market…? oh, and don’t forget you can still get your vacuum cleaner repaired (spare the landfill!)

The People | The Food | Norwich Market

Earlier this year I was fortunate enough to be asked by a client to shoot a range of imagery of Norwich market.
 
I often use the market when I’m in the city, but it wasn’t until i spent hours upon hours within the maze of stalls that I truly ‘got it’… the wonderful food, friendly nature of the stall holders, unique produce and great community.
 
I indulged my need for exciting & creative food, wonderful freshly roasted coffee and sublime cakes – oh what a treat this was!
 
The highlight – there were so many, too many to mention – a real gem of Norfolk.
 
A few images to follow in the coming weeks….

Cameras, lights, horses and horse-feed!

Occasionally I get shoots booked in that require a slightly different skillset.
This particular summer shoot was for a well-known and extremely well-respected horse feed & nutrition company. Coming from a horse background, it certainly helped with dealing and photographing the various owners and their beautiful horses.
Working with animals is always testing (boy am I glad I don’t work with them full time!) but equally it’s rather satisfying when the images come together.
One of my favourites is the head Nutritionist in one of the feed rooms – the light was just right, adding a small strobe and reflector helped illuminate the shadows and provided a pleasing portrait.
