On a stunning summers day in Early June I arrived in the beautiful city of Derry/Londonderry to work as the official photographer of The Return of Colmcille, a large-scale extravaganza taking place as part of the UK City of Culture festivities. Produced by outdoor art experts Walk the Plank and written by Frank Cottrell Boyce, the writer of the Olympic opening ceremony, visitors could expect “storytelling on a grand scale, music, art, comedy, procession, performance and fireworks during this once in a lifetime weekend”.

My thanks again to the good people at Walk The Plank for inviting me along.

A very different shoot from the one in the previous post was for a local independent coffee shop on it’s opening day. Navaho Coffee opened it’s doors recently to serve the thousands of workers on the UK’s largest office park (Cobalt Business Park).

It’s always great to be approached by a new client, especially a big well known one. So when I was asked to do a job last weekend for Sony Playstation at the NEC I was rather happy.
