Meadow Lane Black & White

Passion, tension, anticipation, drama, celebration, community, family – I love that all of this is available in abundance on match day (and in the case of Notts County has been since 1862)! This is the continuation of a project photographing match day at Meadow Lane. In taking these images I endeavour to capture what football…

Jake Bugg in the Electric House

Last month I had the privilege of accompanying the Notts County media team to photograph Jake in London. He is the official shirt sponsor for the club in the table topping month of November. In the anticipation of meeting Jake it felt a bit of a paradox  – I was telling myself he’s just a normal…

New Bishop of Sheffield

Congratulations to Bishop Pete who was installed as the eight Bishop of Sheffield today. A stunning service at a packed Sheffield Cathedral.   

The Circus

In the half light of backstage, Zippos circus feels like magic. There is the sounds of oohs and ahhs, applause, laughter, anticipation, drum rolls, cheers…. the smell of the horses, smoke machines… and the stream of hard working performers from around the world (Brazil, Kazakhstan, Africa, America) readying themselves… Everything combines to make it feel…

Jake Bugg at Meadow Lane

A very intimate and compelling gig at Meadow Lane last night – performed in support of Amnesty International and Sofar Sounds’ Give a Home campaign. Following media interviews at his beloved home town club, Jake performed a breathtaking set in front of just 100 people in the Notts County boardroom.

Set with it’s wide open views of the Peak District – this was a great location for a very special gathering of…

Married at St Toms Philadelphia, with hundreds present to witness the occasion including the son of Frank Sinatra!?  We headed to the Peaks at the end of the day to capture some portraits in the evening light where the sun almost made…

The Wedding of Babs and Milly

Here’s a sneak preview of Babs and Milly’s wedding at St Peters Alstonefield and Uppermoor Farm in Parwich. Both of my sister-in laws were married at St Peters so it was lovely to return to capture Babs and Milly’s special day. Brilliant bell ringers (just visible in the top balcony) announced to stragglers in The George to get…

Asylum Seekers

These are a few portraits from a recent shoot for the excellent Open Hands Project. Open Hands offer housing and support for people who have fled from their home country but who are refused the right to find work or social housing in this country. These guys were lovely to photograph – warm, welcoming and…

The Wedding of Ian and Jennifer

The lovely wedding of Ian and Jennifer at The Norfolk Arms, Sheffield. This was a great celebration in the middle of the hottest June for forty years – a proper English summers day!  We managed to grab half an hour to head off further into the peaks (despite the jubilant cèilidh being in full swing) to…
