Great Fun at a Lovely Beccles Nursery

Famous children’s illustrator Polly Dunbar has created a wonderful mural at a local Suffolk nursery, helping to significantly brighten up the space!
A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of popping along to Big Sky Nursery in the charming market town of Beccles to photograph some of the lovely children and to meet and photograph Polly, with the newly created mural.
Dodging rain showers, we had great fun setting up some of the shots, using the odd strobe to add that sparkle, the kids played ball (literally) and were great little models.

Building Site, Model & Some Excellent Work-wear!

A Fabulous shoot a few weeks back on a Mid Suffolk building site for a strong and reputable tough clothing brand using an actual carpenter as the model – a long but thoroughly enjoyable shoot.

The weather gods played ball and provided pretty good conditions – of course it can always be better (i mean, what photographer doesn’t criticise the light!) but on the whole I had enough to work with, added by two or three studio strobes and the odd reflector.

A potential career change for the model Anthony, should the carpentry work ever dry up!

A Lovely Sunrise on the Gallops in Newmarket

Late 2018 I headed out to Newmarket to capture images for a client. Leaving home early, I got to the gallops bang on time, to capture this soft beautiful image of the horses in the distance, coming down the famous hill towards the Suffolk town.

It’s all about planning, getting the time right and a touch of luck!

Lovely light, bright corporate space

Recently I had the pleasure of returning to one of my regular clients, shooting some new lifestyle corporate imagery in their wonderfully bright clean environment.

During these shoots, I always to try to keep lighting to around two led studio strobes and the beautiful range of Nikon primes (god I love those lenses, despite the horrendous price!)

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

Fun Advertising Shoot in a Suffolk Warehouse

Earlier this year I had the pleasure of popping along to a warehouse in Suffolk to shoot images for an upcoming advertising campaign… a gritty and tough image was the brief.

Finding a dark corner of the warehouse, I setup a temporary studio, three strobes, a couple of reflectors and a trusty tripod.

What followed was an interesting shoot with a range of power tools and props, with images supplied to the advertising agency ready for their national campaign.

A Wonderful Wedding in Woodbridge

On a beautiful cold winters day, Tina & Gary ‘tied the knot’ in the wonderful surroundings of Woodhall Manor.

While the winter light disappears quickly, it does bring other opportunities for the photographer!

Thankfully, Tina came prepared with enough sparklers for each guest and with the guests happy to brave the freezing conditions for a few minutes we created a wonderfully atmospheric scene to celebrate their union.

Wishing you a happy lovely life together.

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.
