North Light Cafe

Client: North Light Cafe Brief: With the cafe now under new management, the cafe has recently undergone a major facelift. As a result the new management required fresh images of the space for use their new website and social media. In addition, they requested some photos of some of the fresh food and barista coffee on offer.   A few days later the cafe had it’s official (re)launch event, of which I shot some more images…

Thistledown House B&B

Client: Thistledown House B&B Brief: Lesley & Eric – the B&B owners – decided that their existing website photography was not doing justice to the quality of the facilities on offer. A fresh eye and professional finish was called upon to boost the quality of their marketing images.   Luckily the rain gave way to some blue sky by the afternoon, allowing me to get some exterior shots… This rather handsome chap is Ted. I was asked to take his photo so that visitors would know there’s a dog on site!

A Little Bit of Leeds

Every now and again I like to have a wander around a town/city I know and take photos of the buildings. More often than not I’ll find something new I haven’t spotted before, so it’s always a worthwhile endeavour.   The lady in the background seems envious of Joseph Priestley’s prime position in City Square… These last two images are more about texture and shape than anything else…

Skipbridge Farm Cottages

Client: Skipbridge Farm Cottages Brief: To photograph a couple of styled holiday cottages and a luxury ‘shepherd’s hut’ for internet/social marketing purposes.  

A Little Bit of Dublin

I thought I’d share a handful of images I shot in Dublin, mainly around the Samuel Beckett Bridge on the river front…   I can’t decide if I prefer this image in colour… … or black and white. Aviva Stadium…

Corporate Photography

Whilst I specialise in photographing architecture and interiors for a living, I do also get asked to cover other corporate/commercial subjects. In the space of a week I could be shooting a renovated house and a company awards evening. Here are just a few examples of ‘other’ work that I’ve undertaken… Contact me for a quote for your corporate photographic needs.   A promo shoot for Phil Lyons New Vintage Band… A Fiat Ducato van for a brochure produced by Nickel Design… Coverage of The Nuclear Institute‘s Young Generation Network annual awards event… A promo shoot for The Gentleman’s Retreat in Doncaster… Promotional portraits for motivational speaker Lee Jackson…

Image is Everything – The Importance of Professional Photography

Obviously, as a photographer I’m going to say that image is everything but, when it comes to selling a house, I really believe it is. I know that when my wife and I were looking at houses we dismissed many a potential property based solely on what we saw in the photographs and I guess many others have done the same. Sometimes first impressions really do matter. This property had been listed with an estate agent for several months with only a handful of viewings in that time. Like with a lot of Estate Agents the photos used to market the property had been captured by the agents themselves when the floor plan measurements and valuation had taken place – not by a professional photographer. I was asked by the owner to come in and take some new images so the property’s listing could be updated. A few weeks after I supplied the new photos an offer was made on the property and the sale went through soon after! Below are the images for comparison…   For starters there wasn’t an image of the entrance hall, so I captured this… Original… Mine… Original… Mine… Original… Mine… Original… Mine… Original… Mine… […]
