Light, Bright Corporate Shoot

I remember the days (gosh I sound somewhat old now!) when I was first commissioned – many years ago – to shoot corporate material. I would arrive and be greeted with bland walls, laminate furniture and horrible lighting.

These days companies – certainly those forward-thinking organisations, have created wonderfully light, bright and attractive places of work. Even older properties have been transformed with colour and those nice little touches. It is really good to see organisations investing in their employees, considering their wellbeing and of course enabling photographers to grab some excellent frames.

This recent work is shot in the company’s offices in Norwich and Cambridge and as with the vast majority of my work, was a joy to shoot.

Cemex Hackathon | Cambridge

What exactly is a Hackathon? that was the question I was asking about 10 days ago when a booking popped in for a two day shoot in Cambridge working with worldwide brand Cemex.

Arriving at the fabulous Moller Centre, it seems I wasn’t the only one asking that question… However, after two long days, lots of coffee, coca cola and tremendous food – the brains of the 150+ people certainly had a good workout!

Come 4pm on Saturday the final ideas were presented, prizes awarded and the commitment from the company to develop the idea.. what a fab way to generate ideas and ‘move forward’ as a brand.

 

The Big C Bungee in Norwich

Ever fancied doing a bungee jump?… well, hopefully these images will give you a small glimpse into the fun that over 40 people had on Sunday at the Big C charity jump outside the Forum in Norwich.

Arguably having the best job of the day, I was up and down in the 200ft crane, photographing jumpers, their emotions and the great fun they all had. Sadly I missed the chance to jump myself, but nerveless had a great experience.

Providing Photography to Rural Africa

When Julian Claxton chanced upon a rural Ugandan school, he ended up giving 25 children the gift of photography. He tells the story”

Read the story of how I am providing photography to rural Africa in the blog post I have written for Wex Photographic..

Tour of Britain comes to Norfolk

A rather wet and soggy start to the day in Fakenham, as the Tour of Britain rolled into town for the penultimate stage of the British road racing tour.

Crowds lined the roads in Norfolk to welcome some of the best cyclists in the world, as they rode through the Norfolk & Suffolk flat lands, leading to a wonderful spring finish in Ipswich.

a glimpse of my work in 2014

20 photos from my work in 2014.

From the souqs of Marrakesh to leaning over the side of the lifeboat (& loosing some weight…) while trying to shoot a feature. it’s been a year that has been full of wonderful experiences and interactions with some truly inspiring people.

Here’s to a continuation in 2015

Lifestyle shoot in Fritton

This week has seen me out and about, shooting a few pre Christmas lifestyle shoots around Norfolk & Suffolk.

Whilst I get on top of the mountain of processing I thought I’d post a quick peek at last weekends shoot in Fritton woods in Norfolk of the lovely Emma, Dane & their adorable (and somewhat of a poser) dog Oscar…

The colours in the woodland were simply wonderful!

Portrait shoot on Aldeburgh beach

Quick peek at one of the images from a shoot last weekend in Aldeburgh of the Watling family.

Grabbing an hour in between heavy rain, we managed (just about) to stay dry and shoot some images on the lovely beach at Aldeburgh.. The mist was rolling in and the light was going quickly, thankfully we got everything just before the rain clouds rolled in again!
