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.

Creative Annual Report Photography

When a call comes in for a shoot, asking you to capture images for the forthcoming annual report, naturally a certain style / preconception comes to mind… within a very short amount of time and following a meeting with the dynamic Chief Executive those preconceptions were blown out of the water as Emma’s plans for a dynamic, vibrant and inclusive Annual Report came to life.

Working with the staff of Access Community Trust
volunteers and service users I had great fun over a day and half shooting images in different settings around the town of Lowestoft – by the end of the second day the report begun to come to life – a selection of vibrant images captured the passion and commitment of the staff, the self-belief of volunteers and service users and provided a perfect visual story to the report, continuing their amazing inclusive commitment.
