When The Rain Stopped

There was my opportunity to take some posed photos of Carl & Kimberley outside at The Sporting Lodge. Having checked out a good background earlier I knew where to have the newlyweds positioned.

Using a 200mm at F2.8 with a bit of processing in PhotoShop I captured the wedding couple at ease with the out of focus background. Please do view their wedding gallery

Reportage style company portraits

Commissioned by Tees Valley Community Foundation to photograph the team at the office.
Rather than photograph individuals looking at the camera, the idea here is to capture team members as they work and engage in conversation. Using available light and a 200 mm lens at f2.8, I am able to photograph the subjects unobtrusively.

Commissioned by PR Manager Tiffany Nicole at Barchester Healthcare to photograph the team & staff at Briardene Care Home in Billingham celebrating their award for Outstanding Achievement.

New Fine Art Print added to Saatchi


Infinity Bridge Stockton on Tees

The Infinity Bridge at Stockton on Tees I have been waiting for the river Tees to be still enough to capture the reflection of Infinity. Finally, the moment happened. I grabbed the camera and got to the location on the Durham University side of the river. I managed to take this photograph as the sun was setting over Stockton on Tees, within 10/15 minutes a little breeze took the reflection away.
