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.

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!

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.

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..

Really excited to announce the next Give a Child a Camera exhibition is being shown at the wonderful Playhouse in Norwich this autumn.
Visit the Playhouse between the 30th October to 1st December and witness first hand a selection of wonderfully emotive images that the children, taking part in the project in Southwest Uganda shot during the month-long workshops this year.
A chance to gain a true insight into the lives of children living in a border town in East Africa, as they use photography to document their lives.

Friday night Somerleyton Hall played host to Shell, who held their 50 year Bacton celebration in the wonderful grounds of the Suffolk Estate.
The lighting throughout the gardens was particularly impressive. A pleasure to photograph in such opulent surroundings.

This may not be the most original photograph I’ve ever taken… but I couldn’t resist shooting an early evening image last week, when presented with a view like this.
I was on a corporate shoot in London and the roof terrace had a simply stunning view of London, especially on a nice mild autumn night.
