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.

Event Photography Awards Shortlist

Delighted to announce I’ve been shortlisted for the 2019 Event Photography Awards. The image in question was a capture during a hectic morning shoot in one of the kitchens at a Cambridge College.

Commercial kitchens are never the easiest places to shoot, limited on time, space and equipment. Thankfully several elements seemed to come together and with careful planning the capture was complete.

It’s always a pleasure to be recognised in a national photographic award and especially one that is so hotly contested within the event and commercial photographic world.

Smiles @ The Norwich & Norfolk Eco Awards

Norwich & Norfolk Eco Awards at the fabulous St Andrew’s Hall was held last week – well done to all the fabulous Eco Winners!

“What does a taxi company in Norwich, a school in Ellingham and an allotment enthusiast in Reepham have in common?

They were all recognised for their commitment to sustainability at the prestigious Norwich and Norfolk Eco Awards 2018-19, held at the historic St Andrews Hall.

They were in good company – with other winners a volunteer group working in Tuckswood, a school in Reepham and a Norwich community interest company – at the evening hosted by biologist and conservationist Professor Ben Garrod. Speakers included Richard Powell, who was awarded an OBE in 2005 in recognition for his work in environment and sustainability.

Professor Garrod said: “I was thrilled to have the honour of hosting this event, which is a real celebration of the effort people are making to do their bit for the planet. It’s particularly inspiring to see the younger participants, who are not just tomorrow’s conservationists but already proving that you’re never too young to make a difference.”

Each of the winners received a handmade sustainable wood trophy and Ellingham VC Primary was presented with three tablets by sponsor Updata and Reepham High School scooped £500.”

Norfolk Broads Charity Photographic Workshop

In association with the fabulous Norfolk Charity Big C I’m running a photographic workshop on the Broads this Spring.

Starting at 2pm, we will spend the afternoon shooting in two locations and then finish with an atmospheric sunset shoot. – Places are strictly limited.

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.

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.

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.

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”

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!
