Great Fun at a Lovely Beccles Nursery

Famous children’s illustrator Polly Dunbar has created a wonderful mural at a local Suffolk nursery, helping to significantly brighten up the space!
 
A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of popping along to Big Sky Nursery in the charming market town of Beccles to photograph some of the lovely children and to meet and photograph Polly, with the newly created mural.
 
Dodging rain showers, we had great fun setting up some of the shots, using the odd strobe to add that sparkle, the kids played ball (literally) and were great little models.

Looking back to 2012

A good friend of mine & very talented filmmaker (D David Morin) uploaded this lovely clip from 2012, when I, along with two others cycled from the UK to Rwanda.
 
It’s especially poignant as this trip ultimately led to the birth of my African photographic project #Giveachildcamera

Norfolk Cycling Team @ UK National Cycling Champs

Yesterday I was out at the feed zone two in Holkham Estate, helping out some good friends at DAP cycling, who were racing in the UK National Champs.
Swapping the camera for several musettes!

Knowing the roads well, I did manage to get ahead of the race on a couple of occasions and shoot some images (packed the 70-200 in the car just in case)

Joining the local DAP riders were a host of household names, including Mark Cavendish MBE, Ian Stannard and eventual winner Ben Swift.
in 25-degree heat, over 180 of the UKs best cycling talent took to the winding country lanes and wind-stricken roads of Norfolk for a true test of grit and endurance over the 125 mile route.
Reigning champion, Connor Swift (Team Arkea-Samsic), was back to defend his title, but he faced competition from 2016 champion Adam Blythe (Lotto Soudal), 2013 winner and former world champion Mark Cavendish (Team Dimension Data) plus 2012 national champion Ian Stannard.

From the start, some of the large UCI teams began driving the pace, gradually thinning out the field, with attacks happening on a regular basis.
The journey from the coast, back through Wroxham and towards home was a telling point, with attack after attack, eventually seeing Ben Swift roll through the tight city centre corners to win the British road race title in some style.
Two of the DAP riders finished in extremely good company, with Andrew Taylor coming in 54th and Harley Matthews a credible 83rd.

Give a Child a Camera – 2019

It is the terrific passion, personality and the eagerness to learn that keeps me going back to Uganda.
The wonderful learning environment at Eden means children are developing into fine young adults and I’m proud to think that some of those children I first met in 2014 are developing in such terrific ways, thanks in part to external funding and the passion from director Ronald.

I’m delighted that in a few months I’ll be returning to rural Uganda, working with a small group of children at the fabulous Eden school and a couple of children from last years project on the Rwandan border who are keen to learn and develop their photography.

Whilst i’m in East Africa I will also be meeting and planning with officials in Rwanda, ready to run the project with new groups in 2020.

Cycling fun in Yarmouth

Fabulous shoot a few weeks ago in sunny Great Yarmouth with a wonderful family.

I was on the lookout for some suitable models and up steps one of the most willing and helpful families around! Kindly giving up a couple of hours, they came, bikes in tow ready to pose along the bright and sunny seafront.

Thankfully Yarmouth has now added to the seafront appeal with some equally bright and cheerful beach huts which provided a useful backdrop.

Building Site, Model & Some Excellent Work-wear!

A Fabulous shoot a few weeks back on a Mid Suffolk building site for a strong and reputable tough clothing brand using an actual carpenter as the model – a long but thoroughly enjoyable shoot.

The weather gods played ball and provided pretty good conditions – of course it can always be better (i mean, what photographer doesn’t criticise the light!) but on the whole I had enough to work with, added by two or three studio strobes and the odd reflector.

A potential career change for the model Anthony, should the carpentry work ever dry up!

Bright & Colourful Pre Wedding Shoot | Norfolk

Beginning of May I met the lovely Ellie & Rob at their stables in Norfolk for a pre wedding shoot.
It was a rather hot day with that horrid mist that didn’t seem to burn off – but thankfully around the stables/paddocks we had a plethora of locations to chose and play with and managed to introduce some strobes to fill light.
 
Many of you will know I am now gradually moving away from weddings due to more commercial operations and it’s a pleasure to end, what has been a wonderful few years with Rob & Ellie’s wedding in a couple or so months.

Invest in High Quality Local Content | Photography

It is a pleasure to see great local businesses continuing to invest in high end marketing & photography, in the push to create a strong reliable and trustworthy brand.

It appears the days of cheap uniform stock photography are becoming a thing of the past for businesses that want to build a reliable brand.
After all, we buy from people and value that trust from strong reliable visuals.
