Lockdown Exercise Walks

I’m a decent human, and I work hard to make my world a better place. This current situation is both daunting and fascinating, every day is an effort as I normally love to be accessorised by close family and friends. On the 1st April 2020, I went on my first lockdown exercise walk. It was 6am and I got back home at 7am.  The route I decided on was one I would normally take when I want a long walk into my studio to prepare for a busy day of work.  Just me, my headphones, a bottle of hand sanitiser …

Business Portraits and Professional Headshots…

In a very visual world, workplace portraits and professional headshots are on the increase.  The way I’m gauging this is the fact that my diary is getting booked up by companies who in the past have used Colin from accounts because he has a big camera or they have been relying on Judith’s iPhone skills.  A good portrait is all about the lighting, whether that be daylight or flash, then a flattering composition followed by a subtle amount of digital polishing. Whether you’re an actor, yoga teacher or a CEO, a professional headshot is an essential marketing tool to have …

North East Calendar 2020

When it comes to photography, weddings, portraits and predominantly people are my thing, but to relax I love photographing local landscapes. Michael Poole Estate Agents asked me if I’d like to work with them on a North East Calendar 2020. They have branches in, Billingham, Coulby Newham, Eston, Ingleby Barwick, Middlesbrough, Nunthorpe, Redcar, Stockton and Yarm. So images of local interest are very important to both me and Michael Poole Estate Agents. I don’t have a library of local scenes, but over the last couple of years I’ve managed to build up a small collection of images around the Teesside …

Champion Of The World

BDO World Darts Champion Glen (Duzza) Durrant Champion – a person who has surpassed all rivals in a sporting contest… Grounded – admirably sensible, realistic and unpretentious… It was an absolute pleasure to have Glen in my Norton High Street studio.  We spent a couple of hours together, photographing him for his main sponsor Harrow Darts.  We had a number of different scenarios to shoot, from kissing his trophy, punching the air and throwing darts.  So when you purchase a Harrow darts dartboard with Glen’s mugshot on the box, you’ll know it was shot by me.  

Sunrise on Saltburn beach…

Sunrise on Saltburn beach, shared with a runner, 2 photographers and 3 dog walkers… 18th February 2017, armed with my ipod, a camera, a tripod, a shutter release cable and a couple of filters I decided (after checking the weather on my iphone) to head to Saltburn at around 5.30am.  My motivation was to try out some new kit and have a play with a few new filters.  Driving along the parkway and seeing a flash of red in the dark morning sky, I knew that falling out of bed early was a good move.  Stood on the beach at …
