Short film and stills commissioned for British Red Cross in association with Co-Op, showing the relationship between Hazel and Wendy and how they help each other in daily life living with loneliness.
First shoot of the year working again in Manchester with BJL for a great Co-Op Bank campaign. Here we are all listening to Bhupendra talking about how he helps woman in India dealing with their everyday struggle and how he has made it his mission to do as much as he can.
I get the chance to photograph many people, in many scenarios for many levels in the world of photography. It is always a pleasure to shoot talented young people with drive and passion for their craft.
I arrived at a town hall where Simone Abley, a Taekwondo champion, was coaching a group of kids. I introduced myself and asked to see the medals she brought. She showed my about 15 world class medals.
A great pleasure shooting Gareth Southgate OBE recently. We spent the afternoon shooting and chatting as well as finding out about the waistcoat story. Here is the cover shot.

Very pleased to be able to show this final image used for new BBC drama, Care. It was a pleasure to work with such talented actors, Sheridan Smith and Alison Steadman.
On set for Ladbrokes again, this time Frank Bruno. Here I am trying to direct the legend himself.
Trying to make the shoot happen the best we can int he rain this weekend. Due to a tight deadline and availability we needed to shoot rain, wind or shine.
I have been making some short films for clothing brand Always Wear Red. Here is the final film combining 4 stories of independent business owners for clothing brand Always Wear Red. Founder Michael Owen explains the the connection between them and their passion why they do what they love.
I personally can complete relate to their passion about doing what you love, and have really enjoyed telling their stories. It’s been a pleasure and thanks to everyone involved and Michael at AWR for allowing me to create the films.
All films can be found via the motion page.
The endless instagram posts, but, I do love the journey and places and people we meet along the way. Everyday is different, and the last few months have certainly been that.
Here’s a grab from our (Adam my assistant) locations filming 5 films for North Yorkshire National Park and onset of Ladbrokes tv ad in Liverpool and Manchester.
A new set of short films following 4 independent business owners and why they live, breath and love what they are passionate about.
New image shot on the set of Gala Bingo’s new TV ad.
Shot at Chief studios in Manchester, we were there shooting on set and campaign images for the new web and print campaign.
More personal portraits on the set of yet another tv ad. The biggest crowd gathering of the week was when the mariachi band came in to do their bit.
The final ad should be a nice one to share.
A few recent Clarks campaign images. We managed to set up after the film crew had finished their shoot relighting the scenes to capture the same atmosphere but more control for our stills layouts we needed to achieve. These can be seen across both print and web media.
The new Ladbrokes Rocketman advert is now released. It was a pleasure to shoot James Buckley in the studio for campaign images. We spent a day on set and achieved only behind the scenes images. That's the way it goes sometimes on tv sets.
World Cup has been and gone, but left a very permanent mark on a united nation.
Along with the England football team, Brian Blessed is also a nation treasure, and here is riding a bear.
You can see our technical set up to create the exact position.
A recent week filming for the Great Yorkshire Show, I managed to test the stills on the Panasonic GH5 for the first time.
I passed this rider at the end of the day having a moment. I stopped and asked for a portrait and he was reluctant. I asked him if he’d had a good day and he replied “not really, that’s why I’m sitting trying to meditate.” I thanked him again.
To me this portrait tells the story of his day.
The full highlights film can be for on motion page.
On location in Liverpool myself and Creative Producer Amy, setting the tone and standing in as we test our set for a new BBC drama.
This is a drama I know will be a one to watch.
Following a long month on the set for a new TV ad, I was fortunate enough to shoot Brian Blessed. He was in person as I had imagined and hoped.
There was a single light bulb hanging next to our set up and I wanted to shoot a personal portrait, within a very quick, quiet moment, the complete opposite to our advertising shoot.
A big part of my daily routine and life is exercise. Keeping fit and active is a passion/hobby of mine (I hear the groans of enthusiasm).
It helps focus, clear the head, motivate, strengthen and also trigger creativity as well as keep your body in tune along with a solid healthy diet.
A good friend of mine opened a gym a few years ago from a passion of his, which has grown from strength to strength, building a local community of people looking for similar mindset and somewhere non commercial to train on a daily basis.
I must admit that it is the best gym I have ever used, which covers all platforms of skills from olympic lifting to intense cardio. You can chat to personal trainers for advice and drink the best coffee in town.
This place has it all and it was a pleasure to be able to shoot a promo film using gym members who attend every day.
