It seems like ages since I did a shoot in the studio. I’ve spent ages out and about shooting people and places, so having to shoot “things” made a pleasant change. Our client wanted a series of shots to illustrate their strands of business. So demon designer Mark Starbuck and I paid a visit to the clients premises to have a look round and come up with some ideas. Having scouted around, we came up with the idea of shooting some “graphic” pieces. I really like the simplicity of the shots and coupled with Starbs handywork the finished results looked pretty good I must say!!

Happy New Year to you!!!….. We hit the New Year running with a 3 day location shoot in North Yorkshire at a stately home near Bedale. My client produces equestrian wear which is also used as a fashion item.  How cold was this!!!!!!……. a blanket of snow made the light have quite a fantastic quality. I’ve never shot in such cold conditions….even the diesel froze in the van!

I’ve been working on some portraits this last few days for a foundation that has road safety as its cause. The foundation highlights accidents among young car drivers and its pre Christmas campaign is an attempt to help reduce the harrowing figures

The brief was to shoot 8 portraits to use in a regional ad campaign ….each one is to represent a person actually involved in one of the fatalities. Having taken time understanding the brief and its message, we got down to some casting…thanks here to Nicci Topping…..and eventually ended up with a series of images that seem very powerful. The hard hitting message is helped by the expressionless faces.

I’ve just been putting the finishing touches to one of the most challenging and involved jobs I have done in a while! Mainly because the brief was to shoot a series of shots for an exhibition. No art direction….. no one choosing the shots…a purely personal piece of work!!

So armed with camera and walking kits, the intrepid explorer spent some time in the Peaks, on the Moors, in the Dales and in Grimsby shooting teenagers of mixed ability doing their awards. There are so many of the images that I really enjoy, that I’m hoping I can produce a book of them in the near future.
