Tour de Broads South | Great Yarmouth

Tour de Broads South took place in Great Yarmouth over the bank holiday weekend.. thankfully the weather was kind – well dry… I’m sure all the cyclists had something to say about the horrendous wind.. but it proved to be a great event, with lots of happy smiling people achieving their personal goals.

Images from the start/finish and those taken by my colleague en-route will available via the official Tour de Broads wesbite  http://www.tourdebroads.com/tdb-south-gallery/

Event Photography Win & Exhibition at Somerset House

No doubt some of you will have seen on social media that I picked up a win at the 2017 Event Photography Awards with my emotive image of children in rural Uganda.

The awards evening, held at the rather special Dutch Hall in London on Thursday proved to be a wonderful evening and I feel rather privileged to win at the Event Photography Awards for the second year running.

My short trip to London was topped off with a visit to the World Photography Awards at Somerset House, where another one of my images of rural Uganda was on show, having made it past over 105,000 entries to gain a top 50 spot at the awards.

Capturing the Uniqueness & Charm of Cambridge

Following on from the success of my last shoot in Cambridge, capturing emotive, interesting and original imagery of the city for forthcoming marketing material, I was asked to add to the collection, this time capturing imagery of the tech parts of the city.
Needing images that fed off the contemporary feel of the city was crucial, much like last time, the imagery had to ‘shout Cambridge’, but also highlight the uniqueness of the charming city.
Pre-planning, choosing the right weather and arriving on site very early is all part of the job.
Thankfully the elements came together and following post processing to the client’s requirements, the images have been a success.
Expect to see these in the coming months throughout marketing material in Cambridge and further afield.

Scenic Cambridge

Busy processing images from my shoot in Cambridge on Sunday… an early start, saw some wonderful light about 7:30am.
It was important that the client had a variety of inspirational and creative images of old and new Cambridge – moving away from the tried and tested imagery of the city to something a little more interesting and emotive – scrapping a lot of the traditional rules of photography to bring together a creative narrative of the modern city.

The B/W is a view of Corpus College – While everyone was shooting images of the college and all taking the same shot, I stood back, waited for a few minutes and grabbed a couple of frames of the college, but with the gorgeous silhouettes of the tourists, all taking their own photographs.

Young Norfolk Bike Riders & Their Skills

While the Tour of Flanders was taking place just over a week ago, Norwich was seeing some of it’s very own young riders pit their wits against cycle ramps, jumps and obstacles as they got to grips with riding bicycles and having fun on bikes.

Cobbles, mud and energy gels!? no thanks… these great kids had wooden obstacles, grass, water and smoothies

Shortlisted for the 2017 Event Photography Awards

Whilst it’s been an interesting week shooting for clients, one of the highlights has been the news that I have been shortlisted in the 2017 Event Photography Awards.

Two of my images – one from Uganda and one from a shoot at the Burnham Market Horse Trials have been shortlisted in the ‘Private Events’ and ‘Sport’ categories.

Last year I won the 2016 Event Photography Awards ‘Behind the scenes’ category with an image from my photographic documentary ‘Election Day’.

The awards ceremony is being held at Dutch Hall in London in three weeks and naturally it’s an honour to be shortlisted for the second year running.

In the coming months, beautiful 10×8″ or 12×16″ prints will be available for sale – with proceeds going back into the development of the children and their photography.

The Jobs Fair People in Norwich

The folks at ‘Jobs Fair’ were the subject matter last week for a small shoot at their offices in Norwich.
Updating their LinkedIn and social media visual presence, they wanted something a little more natural and impromptu as opposed to the usual corporate headshot.

Thankfully, their offices were blessed with a funky painted wall, the perfect visual focal point for photography. Setting up a couple of strobe softboxes and using some lovely natural light, we managed to get an array of beautiful images.
