remedy hallowe’en

remedy

For one of the regular nights I shoot at, Remedy, Hallowe’en is the big one where they pull out all the stops to create a crazy and over the top event. I produced nearly 150 images from this event –…

tinnitus

Just a quick one – after light night I ended up in a little techno night. Some girl (half) jokingly commented that it was her turf, so I thought I’d take a few shots  – mostly because I was a…

light night

zoom burst

An event I always try and get to is the annual Night Light in Leeds, where various art installations and projections take over the city.  I was all set to be really organised this year and plot a sensible path…

Ela Orleans

I was invited down to this lovely intimate gig at Wharf Chambers to shoot a set of images capturing the night. I’ve put a full write up on my Images from The Underground site, but here’s a little taster.

I’ve been ridiculously busy recently, rearranging and redecorating my house, so not had a lot of time to either shoot, or even get things on the site. But, slightly delayed, here are a few recent shots. Each year I try…

unity day warm up

Took my self and my kit down to the warm up party for this year’s Unity Day for a few beers and some shooting. Here’s a few shots from the night. See the full story over at Images From The…

uncle bob

gift

…I was an ‘Uncle Bob’ – as those in the wedding trade call the family member with a good camera.

There was a slight trauma when our toddler launched himself at the cake, and I actually saw the wedding photographer give me a knowing look…

amelia

model shot with steampunk toy gun

…the opportunity to share skills and play with new equipment, and also the chance to do some work with models.

This is Amelia – she said that she was relatively new to modelling and it was mostly a hobby for her, but i found her great to work with…

summer fêtes

bunting

…I have been shooting at the Elliot’s Footprint summer fete in Meanwood; a fundraiser for the charity, which supports parents after the loss of a child.

Though I had a lovely time, I have to say this was one of the most difficult shoots in have done for a long time…

photocamp

people listening to a talk

…and some amazing parafunctional spaces which we used for model shoots, workshops and just making pictures of what we found.

I will post some more of the specific work I produced this weekend later…

le grand depart

le grand depart

…so Le Grand Depart on my doorstep was always going to be something I’d take a look at.

But a bit of a challenge it was, as I had the small toddler in tow…

more waterfront adventures

hepworth gallery in wakefield

…long term project to shoot the canal network in West Yorkshire. Some of this I manage to do with the toddler in tow, as these in Wakefield, where there is also a lovely play park outside the Hepworth Gallery.

I will be making these into a book some time. What is interesting is the differences in my editing style …

Temple Works

temple works roof

…designed by Joseph Bonomi the Younger and built by John Marshall between 1836 and 1840, it boasts a two acre main space, and apparently is pretty unique (at least for the time) in that it is held up under both compression and tension.

On the tour, in the main room we we hard-hatted and required to walk to a ‘safe area’ without stopping, just in case anything fell…

365

sunny winter path

…one image every day for an entire year. It is often seen as a kind of rite of passage for a photographer.

In the end I had to abandon this, not because of taking the images, but keeping up with regular editing and uploading proved hard…

shooting strangers

girls walking home

…photographing a stranger can constitute harassment. In general, harassment requires repetition. There are some cases where it may not – for example if I were to I sneak up behind someone at ground level to capture an ‘upskirt’ this could clearly and rightly be defined as sexual harassment. But the defining factor here is that the person concerned would have an expectation that, although they are in public, the public do not have a reasonable right to take picture of their gusset…
