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!)

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.

Portraiture at Anglia Ruskin | Cambridge

Rather privileged to head back to Anglia Ruskin University to work with a marketing client, obtaining a selection of editorial portraiture for their forthcoming PR use.
Using the interesting surroundings of the Lord Ashcroft Business School, we managed to dodge the harsh sunlight, employ the use of a couple of reflectors and then add a little fill light with a couple of soft boxes

Modern business portraiture in Cambridge

I Shot some enjoyable portraiture this week for the friendly folks at Future business.

The stunning buildings (in Peterborough & Cambridge) are home to dozens of eco and social enterprise businesses and honestly it seems everyone has a smile!

Getting away from the corporate style of photography, they want images that offer a slightly more relaxed and modern feel and I guess images that are more personable – something I love to shoot!

Future Business Shoot

The last time I visited Peterborough was many years ago, when I shot some images of the football ground for the Posh, this was while I was still studying and I remember feeling so proud I was getting paid to shoot images!

Many years later (eek!) I was back at the ground, this time shooting images of the new Future Business Centre, which is linked to the ground.

Working around scaffolding & freshly painted walls, I shot several images of the rather cool building and some of the lovely staff.

Rural Uganda & give a child a camera project

Loosing track of days (it’s lovely not having internet on a regular basis) I realise already a week has flown by for my time at Eden School in Uganda.

I’m sat in a tourist hotel using their intermittent wifi , having a break this afternoon from the hard work at the school and the pretty constant walking.

I consider myself fairly fit, but let me tell you, these hills combined with the stifling heat really take it out of one! The last few days I’ve been visiting the twenty three children who had the cameras, checking on their progress, meeting family and generally having a wonderful time.

For all of the families I was the first Muzungu to have visited them and it was a real treat, enabling me to glimpse life in rural Uganda and capture some pretty special images. I was showered with gifts, ranging from gorgeous fruit to lovely hand woven pots. While they didn’t have electricity and often lived in pretty tough surroundings, the one thing that was evident throughout was that all of the people were hardworking, extremely hospitable and as you would expect rather charming people.

The children I’ve been teaching photography too really seemed to have taken to the idea of photography. They listened intently to my teaching, appearing to grasp the principle of film, flash and subject matters. I now have 23 films to develop, which will see me going into town tomorrow on a Boda Boda (motorbike taxi) to get the film processed….

I’m rather impressed that out of the 23 cameras given out only one was not present when I visited, however this morning all the children turned up with them – I’m so pleased. The kids have taken great care of them and really cherished this opportunity.
