February 2014. Client: BITC

My equipment was stolen! Ouch. My Nikon D3s (serial number 2006381) and 24-70mm F2.8 Nikon lens (serial number 20010612) . Can you check in your camera bag if you’ve bought these (and send them back to me – Thanks!) So I had a two day job covering BITC’s Leadership Summit at Tobacco Dock in Shadwell and after…

January 2014. Client: The Brooke

I got a call from The Brooke (an international animal welfare charity dedicated to improving the lives of working horses, donkeys and mules) as their president HRH Camilla The Duchess of Cornwall was to visit a photographic exhibition to celebrate its 80th anniversary. Richard Dunwoody, the retired champion jockey, was the photographer and this was…

December 2013. Client: Inconnection UK Ltd

This year’s headline act at Inconnections HAC Comedy Christmas Lunch was Dara O’Briain. Do you need the Wikipedia link back there to see who he is? He does seem to be on a lot of TV programs and I’m not surprised; I think he is a very clever, funny man. His current routine includes material…

November 2013. Client: Clarence House

I got a call from Clarence House asking if I was available to do a group shot of The Prince of Wales with the Prime Minister David Cameron, Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg and opposition leader Ed Miliband with 50 young people inside Buckingham Palace for the Step Up To Serve launch. I said ‘Yes, I…

October 2013 – The American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP)

What have the Theme from M*A*S*H, Downtown, Music to Watch Girls By, Crossroads theme, Messing About On The River and the theme from Emmerdale and Neighbours all got in common? (Do you see where I’m going with this?) The lovely, quiet, unassuming Tony Hatch entertained the ASCAP award winners with a medley of a few…

September 2013. Client: Harvard Business Publishing

Clayton M. Christensen, professor at Harvard Business School and co-author of The Innovator’s DNA gave a talk at the Victoria & Albert Museum as part of an HBR event. Here I have sought  to capture his energetic delivery style as well as show a snap shot of the increasingly complex slide that was expanding behind…

August 2013. Client: thepinkgroup – Sedus

Sedus filled an eight storey building in Croydon with office furniture and before everyone came in and sat down I photographed it for them. On some of the images I used the daylight, flash and artificial lighting in the same shot *. The artificial light was on a power-saving-eco-setting that would only come on once…

July 2013. Client: BITC Awards 2013

Joanna Lumley (my keyboard defaults to type National Treasure after her name) and James Corden hosted BITC’s Awards 2013 at The Royal Albert Hall. This is a shot during the rehearsal which was a very quick run through of where they would be standing and sitting. Most of the content of the performance and Q&A…

June 2013. Client: Ponti’s Italian Kitchen

As well as taking photographs I like to think my expertise extends to the eating of pizza. It was the perfect storm of my skill sets the day I photographed Ponti’s Italian Kitchen for their new website. The oven flame was used to cook the Quattro Stagioni as well as dramatically backlight it. Che bello!

May 2013. Client: The Prince’s Charities

One of areas targeted by the Prince’s Regeneration Summit is Burslem (one of the six towns that make up Stoke-on-Trent, doncha know?). They have a vibrant minicab service getting people to and fro the federation of towns but far too many boarded up shops and houses in each of them.  The aim of The Prince’s…
