It’s Nearly Halloween

Every year I shoot a Pumpkin Festival deep in the Shropshire Countryside. It’s an event that I look forward to well in advance – I’m a total kid when it comes to Halloween and the opportunity to carve pumpkins certainly isn’t lost on me at all. There’s a huge field of pumpkins and the children ... Read more


Smoked Pheasant!

Sometimes we come across very exclusive products to photograph – and have to have a bit of a head scratch as to how to make it look just right! This week it was smoked pheasant – I’ve got a (very good) book on smoking and given I stopped enjoying a cigarette myself about 20 years ... Read more


Sabrina Zeif – Kitchen Thyme Magazine Shoot

I was lucky enough to do some photography for Delicatessen UK magazine, shooting Shropshire based food expert Sabrina Zeif for their cover. Sabrina is a colourful character and her ¬†company Cooking Thyme is a real success, focusing on Caribbean and Cajun based recipes. She’d just finished the Shrewsbury Food Fair (one of the biggest events ... Read more


Classic Cars and Hampers!

We had an interesting shoot yesterday – advertising hampers for a classic car show! Now we’re fortunate enough to own two classic cars (fortunate to the extent that they break down in beautiful places and I love them both despite that) – an MG Midget and a VW Camper. I’m always on the lookout for ... Read more


Penkridge Horse Show

Canon 1dx, 400 2.8 I love a horse show. I’ve said it before but I’m happily saying it again. The competitors are great fun to talk to, and it’s good to see kids involved in something that involves skill and dexterity and care – a far cry from a PS4 or an xBox. So we’re ... Read more


Mr Moyden’s Cheese

It was interesting to meet a cheese maker recently – something I’ve always been curious about (due in no small part to eating a lot of it!). Not far from where I live is Mr Moyden’s cheese – where an incredible range of cheeses are produced, with fatastic local names like “Wrekin Blue”. Martin Moyden, ... Read more

Very pleased to have my photos published in The Shropshire Cookbook by Meze Publishing! I’ve been the photographer for Apley Farm Shop in Norton, Shropshire for the past 18 months, covering their events, commercial and even portrait photography with some fantastic marketing shots which have really fitted in well with their growing business! I’m looking ... Read more


27/05/2017 Apley Plant Centre

Now this is somewhere that’s very exclusive, tucked away in the courtyard at Apley Farm Shop in Norton, Shropshire. While I race around with event photography I do like to find time to shoot marketing and commercial photos (all part of being a diverse photographer!) and I enjoyed spending a bit of time talking to ...

22/05/2017 Barbecue Boxes and Cupcakes

Product photography is a staple for us, it’s surprisingly varied and we always aim to get something that’s “standard” and something a little different. A lot of it is about matching the product with a good background – we see a lot of photos taken with the traditional “top down” approach which is great, but ... Read more


19/05/2017 Gardener’s Question Time!

I hot footed it from a very hot and sunny Venice to get back in time to photograph a Gardener’s Question Time session, organised by Chris Mackrell from the Telford Rotary Club and hosted by Paul Shuttleworth (Gardener’s Question Time, BBC Shropshire) with a panel comprising Phil Allen (Head Gardener at Apley Walled Garden) and ...
