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?

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.

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.

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.

Last weekend was Newcastle’s annual ‘Ouseburn Open Studios Weekend’ were many of the city’s artists and studio holders open their doors to the public. Rather than selling prints and trying to get commissions I thought I’d rather do something different and much more fun, and even raise a few quid for charity.

We did a lovely little styling shoot a few evenings ago for Electrik Sheep in their great clothing store here in Newcastle.

Coming out of the West side of Manhattan, with their roots in graffiti and skateboarding, Only NY are the latest brand to be stocked by Newcastles finest independent clothing and art store Electrik Sheep. So to publicise this on both sides of the Atlantic we teamed up with Newcastle based art collective Prefab77 who share the same ethos as the folks over in NY for a shoot in their busy studio.

I’m lucky enough to say that this iconic brand is a client of mine. I love shooting for them as it’s always going to be something fun.
