  • Affordable photography for creative makers and trades

    It is often the work of small artisan makers and trades that contribute most to giving a space a unique look and feel. It is their craft and creativity that makes my work as a photographer such a pleasure and helps towards a positive photographic outcome. Creative design and making businesses are often the sole traders or very small businesses who…

  • This week I am reading . . .NORDIC LIGHT

    Volume, form, texture and colour are recognised as the basic pillars of architecture but it is light that that binds them together producing an aesthetic outcome. Photography is the science and art of capturing light and I think it is this partnership; light in architecture + light in photography, that is at the essence of capturing the designed…

    True colours

    How important is accurate colour to you?

    Suffolk barn for Real Homes magazine

    They say that you can’t ‘take’ a portrait, you have to be ‘given’ it. There same is true of architecture and interiors photography only in this case it is the architect, the interior designer or whoever put the care into creating such a beautiful environment that is providing the gift. I was recently commissioned to shoot a beautiful barn conversion…

    Suffolk is full of undiscovered treasures and the handmade tile-works, Smoke and Fire, at Darsham is one of them. Working with the fabulously skilled and creative Smoke and Fire team I have been photographing their beautiful tiles and their workshop for a new website which will be published in the next few months.

  • The Mix Stowmarket, Suffolk commissioned by Concertus

    Update your photography stock – your ‘staff photographer’

    It is a problem of priorities. You can’t keep on using the same old pictures. You intend to maintain an up-to-date stock of recent photography  but there are always more urgent things to do.
