Creative England

I Recently shoot a workshop for creative England and also captured 20 portraits of the students on the course.

This was an interesting job as the portraits had to be captured in one location but had to have some variety in the photos to match the students personalities, and there was a limited time allocation for them to be shot, so it was fun think on my feet and get variety in a small space, i’m quite happy with the results it helps having photogenic people to capture!

Some of the photos can be seen below and on the corporate portraits page.

Pinocchio!

Had an interesting shoot the other weekend with the wonderful Derby Theatre production Oddsocks, I shot Promotional photos for their winter production of Pinocchio!

A young actor called Ethan Lewis was to be our Pinocchio model for the day, and the talented Charlie Mackenzie Barrow did his wood themed make up, including a prosthetic nose for some of the shots, and we had Andy Barrow as Geppetto.

We had a lot of fun with the actors getting into character and creating warm looking shots for their posters of the show!

Tractors and Robot Arms

I worked on a little Commercial last week doing behind the scenes photography on a Farm in Rugby it was an interesting shoot with tractors and a robot arm for the camera, which was called the Milo! It was very fun to photograph, and watch manoeuvre around the actors to capture the scene.

Here’s a few photos from the shoot, I met some lovely people and leaned how to sneakily get my shots without being hit by a gigantic mechanical arm!

A Snowy Day

As I’ve mentioned a few times photography is not just a job to me its my passion and I enjoy doing it in my spare time as much as I do for work! One of my favourite aspects of it is going out into the country side and capturing the natural beauty, so when some snow had settled in the local area I had to go and explore.

I visited Attenborough Nature Reserve and it was like a beautiful Winter wonderland, So here’s a few images from my day exploring this stunning scenery. It’s so important that we take time for ourselves and do what we love!

Beat the Street's!

Yesterday was Nottingham’s Beat the Street’s music festival, which is an event where local Nottingham musicians play in venues across the city to help raise money for the Framework Charity which is in aid of helping homeless people, every penny raised goes to this charity!

It’s for such a good cause, Living in a city I see more and more homeless people each day. I volunteer to photograph this day for DHP to document the event to help raise awareness and funds for framework.

It’s such a fun event and everyone buying a ticket, working or volunteering their time to make the event a success makes me proud of my city!

So here’s a few photos of the bands from the Day :)
