I was abroad for a month and came back really eager to shoot around Birmingham again. It’s the perfect time of the year for me, with beautiful light providing a lot of shooting opportunities throughout the day. Here are a few shots I captured on my first outing. Hope you like them as much as I do!
Last Monday, UK Shooters organised their first meet in Birmingham. After recently attending one of their meets at Canary Wharf, I knew it was going to be a great evening and I was looking forward to getting some really cool shots with awesome models, some of which were local.
On the 5th of July I had the chance to attend a music photography masterclass in London with the amazing photographer Peter Neill, also known as Shoot the Sound. The venue was an amazing space provided by Cambridge Audio and we got the opportunity to shoot the band Bridges live. We got some incredible tips to shoot and film bands and insight into the music industry. all thanks to Peter, and we put all into practice on the day.
A selection of the photos that I captured on Saturday May 26th at the Birmingham Pride Parade. So glad the weather improved and the rain stopped just as the parade had started! The party vibe was as good as ever and there was colour everywhere!
Having not had the chance to capture any photos during the worst of the snow last week I went out early on Saturday to capture some heavy fog and snow around the centre in Birmingham.
The low temperatures brought by the infamous Beast from the East didn't stop me when I ventured out to capture a few images of the snow at Gas Street Basin. I was hoping I would be able to get some images as it was snowing but unfortunately it only snowed briefly before I got there. I still took quite a few photographs as the snow and frost on the canals and paths made everything look really beautiful.
If you are like me, you have been yearning for years for a decent amount of snow to fall in Birmingham during winter.
Ahead of this years 5th of November celebrations I decided to share my favourite shots from last year.
Which one is your favourite?
It's been four years since the Library of Birmingham opened its doors to the public and coincidentally I was there last week taking a few photographs. I was there on the opening day and ever since that day I have loved photographing its exterior, interior and also the ever changing views it has from its balconies.
Six weeks ago, I was very excited to receive an invitation to access Fort Dunlop's rooftop throughout the month of August. The purpose was to capture images to mark 100 years since the first tyres rolled off the production line.
Images from a recent journey through the London underground.
I recently heard about Mat Collishaw's Thresholds touring exhibition and I was very curious about it because it involves the use of virtual reality (VR) to recreate one of the world’s first major photography exhibitions, which took place here in Birmingham in 1839. As I had never experienced VR technology first hand, I thought visiting the exhibition would be a great opportunity to try it, and also to learn about William Henry Fox Talbot's photography exhibition.
On a recent trip to Bristol I decided to capture the vibrancy of the harbour at night though some long exposures.
I recently spent a weekend in Bristol with my other half and stayed at the beautiful Mercure Grand Hotel a stunning Grade II listed building which has a wonderful Victorian façade that you can see in the photos above.
Colourful fields abound this summer and I was very happy to be able to capture this beautiful red field under the golden light of sunset this last weekend. Capturing the light bathing individual flowers made for a lot of photo opportunities too.
Last Sunday, I had the opportunity to visit the abandoned Steelhouse Lane Lock Up, a Victorian prison in Birmingham, which was opened in 1892 and has been in disuse for several years. The Peaky Blinders were amongst the cells' inmates once held there.
After last week's terrible event in Manchester it was good to see people of all backgrounds coming together to celebrate Bimingham Pride Parade 2017
Yesterday I had the opportunity to photograph the Spaghetti Junction - for a second time
When I found out in August that Orb, a Birmingham brand agency, was running a photography competition called #BrandBrum to present this wonderful city to the world as a brand and to highlight what it means to us photographers, I knew I had to take part and so I got down to work.
