Tasty Trails

If you’ve been out and about in the North East lately you might have come across a set of 4 maps showcasing the wide range of locally sourced and produced food and drink available in several of the North East’s stunning landscapes.

Commissioned by Visit County Durham and Visit Northumberland I had 4 days to shoot at 16 businesses across the entire region, and with portraits, food, interiors and incidentals to get at each, it was a certainly a whirlwind tour of some fantastic businesses in some beautiful locations.

Graffiti Vid’s

Working with Graffiti Prints, a specialist in limited edition urban art, I’ve recently made a couple of behind the scenes video of all the work that goes into a print before it hits your walls.

Unison Colour

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.

Generating Video

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.

Barbour.

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.

3 festivals in 1 week.

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.
