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.

…. Happy New Year!
Ok, so this isn’t the first post of the year but it the first post of NYE related photos. Here’s a couple of my favourite pics from the 2012 new years eve parade in Newcastle, and one of the fireworks, because who doesn’t like fireworks?

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.

Back at the start of the year on a very cold and windy Northumberland beach we shot a Spring/Summer campaign for ‘Reluctant Hero’, a clothing brand based between Manchester and Newcastle.
Unbelievably, the day before the shoot we scouted the locations in a blizzard! Just goes to show what a difference a day makes, as well as some careful cropping out of the patches of snow still on the ground.

Just a couple of weeks back I had the honour of being asked to photograph the world premiere of ‘Sombrisa” being performed by the amazing ‘Danza Contemporánea de Cuba’. For those of you who missed it I hope the photos below give you a good idea of how stunning it was.

For those of you who missed the spectacle of fireworks, witches, victorian pickpockets, light shows, dancers, royal visitors, and free cake last weekend, all I can say is you missed a treat. It was of course all in celebration of the Theatre Royal’s 175th birthday, and what a great party it was for anyone who wanted to come.

I should really have posted this earlier, but I’ll hold up my hands and admit I’m not the best at keeping my blogs up to date.
Over 2 days, at 11 Locations, with 7 models, 2 clients, 1 stylist and my assistant we produced a whole new batch of photography for marketing Newcastle Gateshead to the rest of the UK as a great place to come and shop, eat, drink or just soak up the sights.
Here’s a little taster of what we did.

It’s great having regular work from internationally recognised brands but I still love picking up new locally based clients too. One such recent addition is Newcastle’s ‘Tyneside Cinema‘, a fantastic independent cinema right in the heart of the city that has been running since 1937!
We did a lovely little styling shoot a few evenings ago for Electrik Sheep in their great clothing store here in Newcastle.
Here’s a couple of the shots.

To celebrate 35 years of keeping those in the outdoors not only dry but looking good, Penfield have released a special edition of their ‘Pacjac’. Originally released as a lightweight trail jacket it became widely popular due to likes of Noel Gallagher being photographed wearing one on many an occasion.
