Congratulations to Norwich Market!

Congratulations to all at Norwich Market for winning Best Large Outdoor Market this week at The Great British Market Awards 2019
 
A spokesman for the National Association of British Market Authorities (NAMBA), which organises the awards, described the city market as ‘a phoenix rising from the ashes’.
 
Credit should also be given to Norwich City Council – who have really been instrumental in the turnaround over the last couple of years, investing time & money into the operation to create such a wonderful vibrant market.
 
in 2018 I was commissioned to capture a bank of imagery of the market & stall holders – what started as a straightforward commission turned into wonderful experience, meeting fabulous people, eating great food and capturing a great collection of visuals.

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.

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..

The People | The Food | Norwich Market

Earlier this year I was fortunate enough to be asked by a client to shoot a range of imagery of Norwich market.
 
I often use the market when I’m in the city, but it wasn’t until i spent hours upon hours within the maze of stalls that I truly ‘got it’… the wonderful food, friendly nature of the stall holders, unique produce and great community.
 
I indulged my need for exciting & creative food, wonderful freshly roasted coffee and sublime cakes – oh what a treat this was!
 
The highlight – there were so many, too many to mention – a real gem of Norfolk.
 
A few images to follow in the coming weeks….

Celebrate Norfolk Day…..

To celebrate Norfolk Day, I thought it was rather suitable for me to share a photograph that I took nearly 14 years ago of Eric Edwards who could quite happily be described as ‘Mr Norfolk’.
 
This photograph was taken using my beloved Hasselblad 500cm using Fuji Provia. I was an aspiring freelancer at the time, trying to cut my teeth in the world of photography.
 
I was lucky enough to work with Eric for 18 months, I would regularly visit him at How Hill and spend the day in his company, listening to stories and relishing the opportunity to be with a true Norfolk legend.
I created a really intimate body of work and in many ways these images helped to launch my freelance career.
 
Thank you Eric and rest in peace (Eric sadly passed away in 2012)

Prince William returns to Norfolk for charity polo match

Prince William returns to Norfolk for charity polo match

Friday in the heart of Norfolk I had the pleasure of being the only photographer at the Norfolk Polo Royal Charity match at Langley Abbey Estate, which saw HRH The Duke of Cambridge join team Tarmac at GRS.

“Prince William, in his role as patron of charities SkillForce and the English Schools Swimming Association, took part in the Norfolk Polo Royal Charity match at Langley Abbey Estate.

The match was closely fought throughout and ended in a draw with a score of 4-4-. The Duke of Cambridge played alongside England International player Peter Webb, Scottish player and adventurer Robert Melville, and Clive Reid from Guards Polo Club.

Owner of Langley Abbey and Norfolk Polo Director, Rebecca Townsend, said: “It’s a real privilege and delight to watch the Duke play. It’s also a very special opportunity to help support the work that these amazing charities carry out.”

Leading construction solutions business, Tarmac sponsored the Royal Team and construction aggregates firm GRS sponsored the opposition.”
