REshoot

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.

Studio.

Now that I finally had a little time to sit and work in the studio, over the Xmas and New Year period, I thought I should share what my space looks like with you all.

Located in a beautifully converted old church just 1.5 miles from the very centre of Newcastle my personal studio space is approx 90ftsq, with access to a larger hireable studio.

The hire space is approx 430 ftsq and includes a scoop over 16ft high.

Other facilities include a fully equipped modern kitchen and secure parking.

Fine Dining

I always enjoy a trip to London for a job, especially when you know that when you get there you’re going to eat like a king.  A recent commission for the Malmasion and Hotel du Vin hotel group was certainly  no exception.  Shooting at both the luxurious Malmaison hotel in Charterhouse Square and the nearby fantastic ‘Bisto du Vin‘ restaurant was a pleasure, not only to be working with such a great team there but also because we got to eat the amazing food once we had finished photographing it.

In the Kitchen

Recently I was photographing an event in the Banqueting Hall of the historic Blackfriars restaurant when I was asked to go into the busy kitchen during service and get some shots of the very busy food prep to be used as prints on their walls.

Here’s a taster of what I managed to get without being shouted at by the obligatory angry chefs.
