Journal

Welcome to my journal. A collection of projects (personal and professional), thoughts and observations. To be honest, it’s just an excuse to showcase films, behind the scenes work, to talk and share ideas. Hope you enjoy it.

The Gate Exterior

The Gate Exterior

Hi. A bit of Behind the Scenes for this Journal entry. The image above is the rig used to create the September Shot of the Month e-mailer. The full image is shown below and is an external architectural shot for The Gate in Newcastle upon Tyne. The kit comprises a...

A Look To The Past

A Look To The Past

Here we go with another delve into the past/archives. If you’re following these posts it’s been brought on by a change in website and a full assault on instagram! Oh, and before I forget, yes we’re back at work using some clever tech that means we can still produce...

Newcastle Cathedral

Newcastle Cathedral

Here is a small selection of images commissioned recently for a project for Newcastle Cathedral in collaboration with Infinite… Below is a screenshot of the website which went live shortly before lockdown. The images are part of a larger awareness campaign for the...

Large Format Photography

Large Format Photography

As I keep on promising (I'm a man of my word!) here's my large format experience, from shot to scan! I created other images on 8x10 and I also took out the Hasselblad and shot two rolls of 120 film (I've also bought a 35mm camera!) but that's for another post, or you...

Back To The Future

Back To The Future

As promised in the previous journal upload, I've had the opportunity to re-familiarise myself to a way of working that I thought I'd never return to! When digital first came onto the scene, I thought it would be a tool for the press and sport, where news and events...

Reflections

Reflections, aren't they great, it's like time travel!

Saltburn Pier

Saltburn Pier

Saltburn Pier. A trip to the seaside usually means fish and chips. Not this time. This was an in between job visits, this isn’t the first time I’ve done this. The last time involved ruining a pair of shoes! Nikon D800e with PCE 45mm.

SOTM 2019 Review

SOTM 2019 Review

It’s the 2019 Shot of the Month (SOTM) Review, ooohh! And the results are in, four portraits (sort of) four buildings, three landscapes and one interior. If you want to compare stats from previous years you’ll have to look at the previous January journal uploads (I’d...

Look After Her

Look After Her

Look after her, a simple message, an urban landscape created on the North Sea coast at Grangetown Sunderland. Happy Xmas, new year and all that! I'd like to thank everyone who was involved with all the commissions over the last 12 months and lets see what adventures...
