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.

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.

Akzo Nobel

It’s always nice to pick up a new client, but especially so when that client is a large multinational company.

Recently I was approached by Akzo Nobel to shoot a member of staff at his office for use in an advert to be shown worldwide, following their strict corporate guidelines.  As you can see from the finished advert below it worked out ok, and hopefully there will be many more shoots to follow.

175th Birthday

This week is the Newcastle’s magnificent Theatre Royal’s 175th birthday and as you would expect for such a landmark age they are planning something special.  The main events of the ‘Birthday Blaze‘ are taking place over the weekend in, on, and around the theatre, but with the celebrations kicking off on Thursday with a very special guest.

I’ve been commissioned by the Theatre to cover not just the celebrations but also the rehearsals and a spot of PR photography too (as below).

HD Video

I should probably have mentioned this earlier but I do also shoot and edit HD video for a number of clients.

Here’s one I shot a few months ago for the Hotel du Vin hotel chain hosted on their YouTube channel.


Paper Girl

Like art?  Like cycling?  Well then, we have the perfect event for you then!!

We are hosting our very own world famous ‘Paper Girl’ event in Newcastle.

What is ‘Papergirl’?… Papergirl is a no bones, lets do and share, give away art on bikes operation. Over the course of one weekend, we plan to have an exhibition of Papergirl contributors with a bit party afterward. The following morning will be the meat and veg of the operation, starting with the breakfast meet up… after which, said cyclists will distribute the artwork to the general public on the streets of Newcastle. To get things rolling, all we need is the artists submissions!
