Norfolk & Norwich Festival Supporters Evening

Last week the wonderful Norfolk & Norwich festival held a supporters evening at the charming Norfolk Club in Norwich.
The evening presents a chance for the charity to raise new funds for the forthcoming 2019 festival as well as providing a wonderful networking opportunity for individuals with like-minded interests. Emotive footage from the 2018 event was shown, as well as some hints for the 2019 festival, which promises to be fabulous!

In Sunny Lowestoft with Access Community

I was recently back in sunny (well, it was damp & cloudy actually… in fact the amazing backdrops made it feel sunny!) Lowestoft to work with the fabulous Access Community, shooting material of their passionate staff, amazing volunteers and dedicated service users.
 
I traveled to a few of their sites, meeting some really passionate people who are making change in the Suffolk community – certainly not an easy job in our time of constant social care cuts – but the determination shines through and it’s down to organisations like these that help to shape our communities for the better and I feel privileged to be able to provide some form of photographic record of this.

Enjoy a coffee & immerse yourself in Africa in Norwich

The feedback for the latest installment of Give a Child a Camera continues to be extremely positive.

I’m sure one or two of my students could have promising photographic careers, Thanks to those of you who were able to attend the supporters evening on the 4th November – it was lovely to chat and explain some of the work and I’m really pleased it seems to have gone down well.

The exhibition is on until the 1st December, plenty of time to pop into the lovely Playhouse, view the work, read the stories behind the images and have a coffee – unwind, relax and immerse yourself in Africa.

Utilising the wonderful Centrum in Norwich

Thoroughly enjoyed shooting this series of corporate portraiture at the lovely Centrum in Norwich – the shear amount of natural light pouring in is a real joy. Add in a sprinkle of colour and you’ve got some of the best backdrops a photographer could wish for… all sheltered from the inconsistent British weather as well!

Inspirational Norfolk Charity

I recently had the pleasure of attending the Centre 81 AGM in Great Yarmouth, shooting images of both the AGM, volunteers & staff.
It was certainly a rewarding few hours, learning about the charity and their amazing work. Perhaps the most interesting part of my visit was the passion shared by not only the staff & volunteers, but the incredible people who come to use the service – a real lifeline for the local users.
 
Centre 81 started in 1981 – the international year for disabled people – and since then has taken great strides to provide a service for people with physical and other disabilities gain skills, independence and confidence.
 
It has grown from just a handful of members to more than 800 who benefit from its ever expanding door to door transport service, and the well used skills and activity centre at its headquarters in Tar Works Road.

One Truly Inspirational Norfolk Person

One of the many pleasures of being a photographer that I’m always harping on about, is the wonderful people I get to meet.

One such inspirational and truly incredible person is David Moar.
David was the co-founder of the BIGC – the cancer charity for Norfolk & Waveney.
Suffering from ‘The Big C’ himself in the early 80’s he became frustrated with the long journey’s to London for treatment – move forward a few years and the BIGC cancer charity was formed, becoming instrumental in the research, development & treatment of cancer in Norfolk.

I spent an enjoyable afternoon in the company of David at his Norfolk home, shooting some soft editorial images. A real treat to be in such lovely company.

Horses, Rider & the Norfolk Countryside

A wet & windy September day saw me head to the Norfolk countryside for a commission to shoot images for the market leading horse feed company of a nutritionist & her two horses..

Unfortunately weather wasn’t on our side, however, two very patient horses and owner, meant we could dodge the heavy rain and shoot outside in the gorgeous countryside.
Strobes in hand, plastic bag in the pocket and walking boots on, images were achieved before a truly biblical downpour..
