Over 3000 miles travelled and thousands of images supplied to clients all around the UK, the past few months have been really busy for me. Here are a few of my favourite images I’ve taken and had published recently.
A client for over 20 years, Aston University wanted some new images to update their student welfare website.

Coming up in the next few weeks , I’m shooting several school and college prospectuses, a VIP visit and refuse lorries around the Bedford area.
Twenty years ago this month, after ten years as a press photographer and around the same time America invaded Iraq, great timing, I left the Birmingham Post to set up my own business. Below are a few pictures from my first few weeks of working for myself and a further two from recent assignments.

-I’ve sent 324 197 pictures to clients all around the world, which roughly means I’ve shot over 2M pictures. -Used 7 cameras (2 dropped beyond repair and survived the Canon 1ds mk3 focussing fiasco) -Used 7 desktop computers (Early Apple ones were overpriced and slow) -Used 9 laptop computers (Less said about the Apple G4, the better. They could hardly handle processing one RAW file) -Worked in Downing Street -Photographed Prince William and Prince Harry during a private visit (Language turned the air blue) -Supplied photographs for two books on food -Now using my 4th lighting system, I started with Canon Speedlites (kept overheating and melting them,) Quantum Q-flash (fantastic system, could shoot HSS, which they didn’t advertise, but no product development for years,) Elinchrom (ELB400 and 500’s were great but a pain to carry and set up.) I recently switched, just before the massive price rises last year to Profoto. They are easy and fast to set up, not too heavy and most importantly, suits my style of shooting, HSS up to 1/8000 using electronic shutter.) -Documented the building of the new QE hospital in Birmingham for the NHS -Still working for some clients I first shot pictures for in 2003 -Photographed the opening of the Bullring and Selfridges in Birmingham, for Selfridges and the Bullring. -Shot fashion in Sweden -Took pictures of Alan Sugar, according to his PR, “On a good day.” Wouldn’t like to have shot him on a bad day… -Bought far too many photography books
A big thank you everyone who has supported me since 2003.

Been a very busy few months shooting new marketing and PR photography for Universities, Schools and Colleges all around the UK. I’m about to spend 4 days in London updating website’s for South East E-ACT academies. Other shoots have been in York, the West Midlands, Leicester, Manchester and Sheffield.
I’ve shot pictures for education since the mid 1990’s and am lucky enough to worked with many schools, Colleges and Universities for nearly 20 years.

A slight return to normality compared to last year, this year has provided me with some very interesting assignments. I’ve spent part of it lying on the floor in a studio photographing globes, photographing Royalty and VIP’s, shooting refuse trucks in Scotland and shooting school, University and College prospectuses. Good to see conferences have returned and I’m getting bookings from the NHS and healthcare providers again after a long break due to the pandemic. I’ve also continued to shoot thousands of staff and corporate portraits, luckily, the lockdown haircuts are now a distant memory.
I hope you all have a Merry Christmas and I look forward to seeing you in the New Year.

Really pleased to say work has picked up since the easing of lockdown restrictions and I’m travelling all over the country again, including a trip to Macclesfield in Cheshire where I started my photography career.

I would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
Thank you for for all of your support throughout 2019. With over 20,000 images supplied, jobs covered all over the UK, including Edinburgh Bristol and London, 2019 has been one of my busiest years since going freelance, 25 years ago in 2003.
This Christmas, instead of sending cards and presents, I will be making a charitable donation to one of Birmingham’s homeless charities https://www.sifafireside.co.uk/ who enable homeless and vulnerable people to take control, paving the way for healthier, fulfilling lives.
I spend a lot of time working in Birmingham City centre and in recent years I have seen more homeless people on the city’s streets. The donation will help Sifa Fireside operate their daily drop in, which isn’t funded through statutory means.
