Late last year I got the call from Artists & Illustrators magazine to shoot a feature on Unison Colour for their upcoming January issue. They have been producing pastels of the highest quality by hand since 1987 from their rural Northumberland workshop. Today they produce over a quarter of a million sticks a year and supply artists all across the world.
With everyone talking about getting away on holiday soon now that the weather has warmed up I was reminded of a job I did last summer in Berlin for Generator Hostels when they opened their latest great place to stay.

Lovers of high quality outdoor clothing in the South rejoice! Barbour, the world renowned makers of weatherproof clothing, have just opened 2 more stores, the first in Canary Wharf and the second at Bicester Village.
This year the family owned business celebrates it’s 120th birthday, and these new stores show that demand for their clothing is stronger than ever.
Now that the weather has improved (supposedly) we are into the outdoor festival period. This year looks to be a busy one for myself with lots of my annual events not long away now and even some new ones that I’ll be working at for the first time.
As a taste of things to come I recently shot at Maker Faire UK, Bishop Auckland Food Festival and Gateshead International Festival of Theatre all within the space of 1 week, and here are a couple of shots from each of them.
On a stunning summers day in Early June I arrived in the beautiful city of Derry/Londonderry to work as the official photographer of The Return of Colmcille, a large-scale extravaganza taking place as part of the UK City of Culture festivities. Produced by outdoor art experts Walk the Plank and written by Frank Cottrell Boyce, the writer of the Olympic opening ceremony, visitors could expect “storytelling on a grand scale, music, art, comedy, procession, performance and fireworks during this once in a lifetime weekend”.

My thanks again to the good people at Walk The Plank for inviting me along.
REcently I was asked to help Corbridge based shop RE update their website, which I was happy do do. For those who don’t already know RE is a wonderful place full of everything thing from beautiful vintage French glasswear to Mexican papier mache skulls via tea cosys and candles. Along with their store in a converted workshop in Northumberland they have a concession in Liberty’s, London and their products regularly featured in the pages of the fashion press.
Below are a photos from the day.
