May 2012. Client: The Prince’s Charities

This was the first time HM The Queen spoke publicly about her eldest son’s charity work and my client was keen that I get The Prince’s Charities logo in when she spoke – I got two logos in the one shot! The location was The Weaver’s Triangle in Burnley which is due for regeneration. After…

May 2012. Client: IFS School of Finance

Melody Hossaini, the former BBC1 The Apprentice candidate was the guest speaker at an IFS event. She is now running her social enterprise InspirEngage International. I took the first picture using the natural light coming in from the 30th floor window with just a flash bounced off the white ceiling to fill in the shadows.…

February 2012. Client: HMPR

Although I specialise in photographing people, every year I get the opportunity to shoot a more static, but surprisingly fun, subject. Potholes – they’re the bane of many drivers’ lives, but they’re my models for the HMPR‘s annual Alarm road maintenance survey. I love this job. Asphalt is everywhere, but I see it in a…

February 2012. Client: MOSAIC

MOSAIC : a charity that creates opportunities for young people of all backgrounds growing up in our most deprived communities – was invited to tea at Clarence House. It’s amazing inside, it’s just like an everyday family sitting room with ornaments and family photographs on the furniture – except that the family is the Windsors and the ornaments are…

February 2012. Client: Business in the Community

It got very busy when the Prime Minister David Cameron met HRH Prince Charles for BITC’s Communities Summit at The Roundhouse – Number 10 entourage meets Clarence House entourage – my most useful piece of equipment in the camera bag was my roll of black gaffa tape (yes I know, that links to Clerkenwell Screws, a…

December 2011. Client: Centric Sports

Seen Paul Gascoigne lately? He doesn’t look too bad. He now talks about his past with incredible honesty and is able to have an audience laugh with him. He  is definitely on the mend and I think we may see more of him in his new cleaned up form. You have to look at past video clips of…

November 2011. Client: Turner Contemporary Museum

The two establishments meet – Tracey Emin and HM The Queen at the official opening of the brand new Turner Contemporary Museum in Margate. Any royal visit is scrupulously choreographed with places and timings fixed well in advance so Tracey and her mum (out of shot on the left) had plenty of time to get…

March 2012. Client: Prestige Ticketing

So Sir Steve Redgrave is 50 (here pictured with John Inverdale the BBC Sports presenter). He entertained a room full of Prestige Ticketing’s clients who were all looking to them to look after their clients during the Olympic weeks with top notch corporate hospitality – food and drink from the best of British suppliers! I tasted the best…

2011…Where did it go? Client: My new born son

 A perfect test for my new Nikkor lens; the AF-S Nikkor 24-70mm F/2.8G ED since you ask…I haven’t named it though… I refer to it as the ‘wider angle, wide open lens’. The speed of the silent wave motor and of course the silence of it is impressive. I see a real difference in colour…
