  • My work in Grand Designs Mag

    It is great to see my work in the latest edition of Grand Designs magazine. Harefield House which I photographed in 2016 for Plaice Architects has now been listed as one of 10  ‘inspirational Timber Projects’ in the UK. Here are some more pics from that lovely project:  

  • Architectural Photography in Suffolk

    The Twilight Zone

    If you have looked at all at the way architecture is photographed nowadays, you will have noted the preponderance of those early evening shots with interior lights burning brightly but with enough natural light remaining to show a deep blue sky overhead. They are fabulous for showing the nature of the interior of a building…

  • View from the top

    A head for heights has been an essential asset for a recent project for a major development on the Ipswich Waterfront. As one of the tallest structures in Ipswich, the WineRack building on the Ipswich Waterfront stood as a highly visible symbol of the ‘great recession’. Now after 10 years the skeleton-like apartment block is…

  • Smoke and Fire – ignited!

They had new products to feature and they wanted to bring the individual beauty of their handcrafted tiles right to the forefront.

    Heathrow behind the scenes

    I have been invited to photograph a number of living wall projects around the country for the Biotecture who create those wonderful walls of plants that make such a positive impact on peoples enjoyment of a place. The first was at Heathrow’s Terminal 3. If you have ever flown long-haul from Gate 25 you may…

    Production Photographer

    Working as the stills photographer on a video production for the Soprema roofing people was something completely different to my usual fair. Whilst I am normally making carefully considered views of recently completed buildings and deliberate compositions of building systems in use, this was ‘blink and you miss it’ photography more akin to photojournalism in…

    Clever buildings

    One thing that can be said for photographing buildings is that at least they are predictable. Well, it used to be like that but increasingly, modern buildings have a mind of their own which can make things more tricky. It started with those buildings which sense your presence and switch on the lights. Great for…
