Back to Medical Imagery

I was back to my roots a few months ago (having previously worked as a medical photographer) at a lovely health centre in the midlands, shooting images for the medical press.

A great couple of days shooting, working with some of the many committed and passionate NHS employees.

An enjoyable, and lively AGM.

Sonrisa Workshop in Cambridge

Part of a Fabulous shoot in Cambridgeshire, as part of a regional music platform.
Visiting a few colleges and academies, I had pleasure watching professional musicians come into the classroom, working with young people to create inspirational pieces of music that were later performed to a wider audience.

The arts are so culturally important and thankfully funding from some government, EU and private sectors enables these programs to continue, which in turn help empower and develop young people.

Lovely Corporate Shoot in Norwich

Using lots of natural light, a couple of small strobes and some wonderful colourful wall space, it was a joy capturing images of the Alan Boswell Group and their happy staff.
 
A great bunch of people to work with in a super office space.

Working with @AgeUKCamden

What an absolute pleasure to be working in Camden today with @AgeUKCamden and seeing my work used so heavily on their awesome literature.
Not only have I had great fun meeting and photographing some of the older residents in the borough, It’s also been an opportunity to learn about their lives, the local area and build strong relationships with some truly inspirational individuals.

Give a Child a Camera | Update October 2019

Give a Child a Camera has been underway and going well in rural Uganda.

Presenting children from the MARPs organisation with a small fund from photo sales from last years exhibition was truly a great moment. Children & their families receiving roughly equivalent to 1.5 months rent of a house/room from their excellent photography.

As always I received a truly special welcome at Eden School – a place I first visited in 2014.

I’ve been working with some of the children creating interesting and emotive images and teaching them how to shoot using instant cameras, creating a unique piece of work that will be up for sale (funds going to the children/families) from Christmas onwards.
We have also been using more advanced equipment – digital SLRs in some cases, learning fully about framing, zooming and when to use flash… It’s been really rather terrific so far and the standard of one or two the children’s photography is incredible.

Thanks for the support as always.

Give a Child a Camera | Develops

Give a Child a Camera is officially go!

Thanks for being patient, as personal circumstances led to the delay of this much awaited part 4 of the project.

This trip is a lot shorter than my regular projects, this is down to a few factors, but chiefly it is because I am busy planning the project for 2020 in East Africa and have a couple of important meetings with community and local government leaders. As I’m running the project again in Uganda, it seemed the ideal time to divert to Rwanda for a day or two to sort issues and actually put a plan of action in place for 2020.

So, the big news is that I am working with a small group of students I’ve worked with previously who have excelled at photography in the past and are very interested in progressing their learning.

Two of the students are based in rural Uganda, while the other two will be based around the border at Katuna.

The two that are confirmed and I have spoken to are Brea & Godwin.

Godwin, is a young orphaned boy, who lives on the hillside with his sister and several other children who have been taken in by a generous local lady.

Summer on the wonderful Norfolk Broads

Late summer (seems a while ago now!) saw me out with my camera equipment on one of my favorite stomping grounds on Visit the Broads National Park shooting a lovely variety of images of boats, pubs, sunset & reeds.

Standing on the riverside during a later summer sunset, on your own – just you, the camera and your thoughts, it is a charming place to be able to work and shoot imagery for upcoming campaigns.

Wonderful Waxham Wedding

Three weeks ago I had the absolute pleasure of photographing the wonderful wedding of Rob & Ellie at the charming Waxham Great Barn Weddings venue on the Norfolk Coast.

A wonderfully relaxed day and evening followed with a truly lovely intimate wedding in superb surroundings.
Rob & Ellie, with their friends had put so much effort into the day, it was a real joy to photograph.

Congrats Mr & Mrs Harlow
