Welcoming the change to mirrioless….. 📷📸 (Fujifilm X-T20) It’s been a tough and unlucky last few months. So stuff it and treat yoself to a new camera 😁 Advertisements
A band shoot for Star Cult shoot from way back in March. I used my Canon for test shots and then my Minolta for the 35mm film shots. However halfway thru the shoot my film camera/lens malfunctioned and digital had to take over. Good vibes and good company as always, such an awesome group. We […]
In the Tate Liverpool I saw this incredible exhibit that made me so happy. I felt like a child again, a room full of colour and huge smile on my face. In this photo I look stupid and I realise that I can not pose and I belong behind the camera. Not in front. Right […]
My brilliant mini escape and I went to my happy place (basically any art gallery) for inspiration. I visited Liverpool’s Tate Gallery at the start of the month. The Tate was a lovely building and some of the exhibits were perfectly curated. I saw some incredibly powerful video art which was about black culture with […]

I had the fantastic opportunity last week to Photograph Sue Hendra and Paul Linnet with their children’s story Supertato Event and Book signing. Children go wild for the character Supertato who of course is a super hero potato. It was a great event to photograph, Paul read/acted out the story with props and voices too. The […]

I had the chance to photograph Nest Makers & Magpies Nest tour. Photographing the tour was a challenge with children unpredictably running around. Parents trying to avoid the camera but also trying to photograph their child on their phones, sometimes just in my shot. Children can be difficult to photograph either they hide away or spend […]
I have had the chance to photograph products for the bookshop’s website, Facebook shop and social media content. I photographed the products for the shops website on a plan white background using a mini fold up studio kit. Which works well. The Bag however would not fit in the mini studio kit and was photographed […]

I had the most wonderful chance to Photograph the first sensory session for Children here at my placement, at Seven Stories. The incredible team of ‘Story Catchers’ that work there have the ability to tap into every sense, working closely with less abled children and their parents/carers. This experience was so magical, seeing the children […]
