Reluctant Hero

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.


Clarks Eggs

Seeing as it’s Easter I thought an egg based blog post would be appropriate.


I was recently commissioned to take portraits of the board members of the development company for Newcastle and Gateshead ‘1NG’.  The board of this independent, private sector-led city development company includes former ministers, heads of local universities and councils, and significant figures from the business world.

Here’s a taster of what we did

Hirsutes You Sir Photomabooth

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.

Northumbria University

Over the summer months whilst most of the students are enjoying their time off, the staff at Northumbria University are as busy as ever working on new marketing materials.  Here’s a sample of the student profiles that I took for them recently.

Newcastle University

I’ve been working with the lovely people there for a couple of years now, and hope that I do for many more.

Personal Work

Just a little example of my own personal work.
