Hello and welcome to my May newsletter where we jump back to early last year. We start with the gorgeous Brooke Vincent, long time Coronation street actress, photographed in Manchester for S Magazine’s ‘In the closet’. We had a great team led by Tricia Bland, make up by Nealey Leah and I was assisted by Karolina. Brooke was great to work with and I really like the ‘white portraits’.

June Newsletter

Hello everyone, here is my June newsletter which starts with my images of Peter Jones being used in Vauxhall magazine – I love the way they’ve laid it out across the dps. Thanks to Chilli Media for syndicating my images.

Now jumping back to September and October I was really pleased to be asked to shoot for ‘The Official Ferrari Magazine’. It’s a beautiful annual magazine produced by Conde Nast, celebrating a year in the life of all things Ferrari. My contribution was to photograph Craig Walton, the service manager at JCT600 in Leeds who is particularly good at his job. Fingers crossed next year they’ll send me to Italy! (more…)

Spring newsletter

Hello Spring

 

Last Saturday was spent photographing Mr Bloom in the morning and a naturist campsite in the afternoon!  And that is why I never get bored of my job…
Luckily for the nudists Spring has arrived and warmed the weather a little so nothing turned blue or dropped off.

A Happy New Year

Hello everyone and a very late Happy New Year!  Welcome to my newsletter which looks back to last May and June and kicks off with a really enjoyable shoot for Sainsbury’s Money Matters magazine with Seven.  They do say never work with animals or children, so to put the two together just seemed like asking for trouble, however this shoot was quite literally a walk in the park – very chilled.  Gorgeous weather, beautiful location, and my two models were little well behaved stars – Rosie and her dog Rusty a Hungarian Vizsla.

An inspiring place

On Monday I had a shoot at The Factory Youth Zone in Harpurhey – Manchester, a building I’ve often driven past and wondered about.  It’s a charity run youth centre for anyone aged 8-21 with this message at it’s heart:

“somewhere to go, something to do, and someone to talk to”

Because this part of Manchester is quite deprived it’s the perfect place for the kids to go and feel wanted and inspired and just hang out.  I was so impressed with the staff and the volunteers as well as the facilities which included, ‘full-size sports hall with 8m high climbing wall, 3G outdoor sports pitch, dance studio, music and media suites, theatre, arts room, boxing gym, fully equipped fitness suite, sensory room, recreational area and cafe’!!

I was there to photograph the Chief Executive for a corporate feature. The brief was to try and capture the essence of her and the charity. I asked lots of the kids to be in the background of the shots and they were all brilliant and took it in their stride.

I really enjoyed this shoot – I just wish I was a teenager again so I could join up!
