Fabis | South Western Uganda

Fabis.

I met this interesting lady last year while visiting some old friends in Western Uganda. I was truly captivated by the muted colours and wilderness of scene that unfolded in front of me.

30 year old Fabis has two children and works around 8 hours a day in the fields and banana groves earning 2500 ugx (50p) per day, in the village of Kachwekano. She suffers with bad eyesight.

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.

Wonderful Winter Wedding in Suffolk

I’m delighted to share some further images from the lovely wedding of Gary & Tina, held at the stunning Woodhall Manor, near Woodbridge.

An intimate winter wedding was something I’ve never had the pleasure of photographing, but WOW, what an idea… everything just seemed to work – although the light disappears quickly, it does bring other options to the table (eg, sparkler /night images) and thankfully we were blessed with some lovely light and dry weather.

Wishing you much happiness Tina & Gary x

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.

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.

Horses, Rider & the Norfolk Countryside

A wet & windy September day saw me head to the Norfolk countryside for a commission to shoot images for the market leading horse feed company of a nutritionist & her two horses..

Unfortunately weather wasn’t on our side, however, two very patient horses and owner, meant we could dodge the heavy rain and shoot outside in the gorgeous countryside.
Strobes in hand, plastic bag in the pocket and walking boots on, images were achieved before a truly biblical downpour..

Give a Child a Camera | Norwich Exhibition

Really excited to announce the next Give a Child a Camera exhibition is being shown at the wonderful Playhouse in Norwich this autumn.

Visit the Playhouse between the 30th October to 1st December and witness first hand a selection of wonderfully emotive images that the children, taking part in the project in Southwest Uganda shot during the month-long workshops this year.

A chance to gain a true insight into the lives of children living in a border town in East Africa, as they use photography to document their lives.

Chelmsford Academic Photo Shoot

Enjoyed a wonderful shoot in Chelmsford recently, with the detailed brief asking me to shoot a range of portraiture of academics in their area of research for future editorial and pr use.

Not only were the subject matter great to work with, but I found myself becoming immersed in the stories of their research and development.

A group of incredibly interesting individuals.

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.
