Even more shooting in 2014

As ever the start of the year is an exciting time for a fresh outlook and new opportunities. With 2013 not long gone, we are again open for business for all types for photography – Commercial projects, Corporate Imagery and of course much more Travel Photography – alongside my own personal photography projects and new ideas.

Can’t wait for an exciting 2014! 

Photography is an exciting passion, career and lifestyle and i’m very lucky to be able to shoot everyday and sustain all three. Here’s to much more in 2014


The Tour of Britain comes through Ashtead

It’s not every day you get a national sporting event happening in your own High Street, so today we ventured out to join the crowds in cheering the cyclists along on the latest stage of the Tour Of Britain Cycle Race 2013.

Of course I grabbed my cameras and had a quick play as they came and were escorted through the village by the Race Control waving the red and white chequered flag and leading the bikes through Ashtead.

The village is ready and waiting..

Not long now…. a slight buzz of excitement goes around

Here they come!!

Can you spot anyone?

There they go…..

..and they’re gone

Wonder who will get to Guildford first?

Interior and Lifestyle Photography


These are a few samples of the latest Commercial Photography undertaken for the Mercure, Novotel and Ibis chains of hotels for Accor hotels.

Using natural lighting as well as location lights from Elinchrom to achieve a ‘sun kissed’ look and feel to the shots. It was great working with a client who allowed my creative freedom to experiment and work with the models.

Download Rock Festival 2013

Download Fest crowds
Crowds enjoying the rock in the sun at Donington Park

This years Download Festival boasted a number of big rock acts which brought in the fans – Slip Knot, Alice in Chains, Motorhead and Iron Maiden to name just a few. With the acts stating to play around 11am there was lots of stages and bands to choose from and rock out all day long.
Lemmy’s still got what it takes!

Motorhead played a balzin set with loads of classic tunes that got the crowd screaming..nice to see them still playing hard.

Saturday night headline act was the almighty Iron Maiden..opening their set with a flypast of a classic Spitfire over the estimated 90,000 fans before launching into a selection of songs off their many albums opening with”Moonchild”.

Bruce screams from the podium 

Other acts included Blitz Kidz, Coal chamber, Hellyeah, Rival Sons and many more bands got the crowds rocking all weekend. 
Another brilliant festival and now waiting for 2014 – good to know there is still a strong rock machine out there in todays world. With new strong act coming through and the old rockers still playing the future for rock looks good.
Blitz Kids are first on to blow the cobwebs away on Sunday morning

Rival Sons played a smooth set and brought a slower pace to the day

Sun, beers, fans and lots of loud rock – great weekend.
Brutality Will Prevail held nothing back in their great show.

Head shots, branding and corporate identity

This week I worked on a number of photo shoots, and here are a few shots from these commissions.

I was commissioned by QualitySolicitors to go into one of their branches and photograph their staff for online profile photos, as well as new branding and signage at the offices.

I was also asked to produce a set of publicity and marketing photographs of the new CEO at Astrum Education in London
These would be used for online profiles, press releases and company reports, as well as his own personal and professional Social Media profiles. My brief was to capture him in various office type environments and situations and provide a variety of photographs to be used by Astrum Education.

Someone I Know

The “Someone I Know” photography project curated by Stuart Pilkington is another great idea he has created to bring photographers from all over the globe together in an international photographic exhibition. I was honoured to have been asked if I wanted to submit; this was my piece.
Please go check out all the great photos and photographers & enjoy.

Recent Photography Commissions

This is a selection of my recent photography commissions from several London & Surrey based companies. As a freelance professional photographer, I travel to London & all over the South regularly shooting a variety of jobs for corporate, commercial & private clients.

Here are some samples from the work I photographed this week;

The first set is photography from a marketing and accounting seminar at EDHEC-Risk. It was important to show the location and views from the main rooms, and to show off the London Campus, the students talking and relaxing, as well as the seminars and lecture rooms.

This was a commission to shoot some company profile photographs of the CEO at One Media iP Group. This consisted of head shots and office based portraits, as well as some more location based shots and the CEO communicating with clients, using technology, and in both formal and informal poses outside the building.

The next series are a set of product shots photographed on location at the showroom and warehouse of the tile supplier Tile Traders. They import from all over the world, and sell to trade and private customers through their website, so needed updated shots of the tile ranges and styles they sell.

I look forward to many more interesting commissions next week, and to the wide range of work we cover as professional London photographers.

Music Photography

Photography as a career can be exciting, surprising and adventurous as well as plenty of hard work and dedication. I generally shoot corporate photography but as well as the conferences and head shots, I occasionaly get to go to some fantastic music festivals and concerts, get given a little ‘Professional Photographer’ ID and access to some amazing acts.

Music Photography Gallery



I have just updated my website with this new gallery of Music Photography, please have a look and enjoy the photos from the past year or so.
