Mum

I like the idea that my photographs tell a story – maybe without the need for words. But these three images need some words to make more sense of them. The three images are of my dear mum. My mum has had dementia for the last three years. I feel very lucky that we still…

Feral3

These are a few photos from a recording session for Sheffield band The Feral3. Nick (the base player) wanted portraits that were intimate – looking straight into the eyes (my favourite type of portraits!) as well as some documentary style shots.

The Wedding of Alex & Sam – Preview

Alex and Sam’s inspiring wedding was held at All Saints Church at Wath followed by a reception at the grand Wortley Hall.

The World’s Oldest Football League Club

 A dream project  – to photograph the club I have supported since I was seven!

The day then included a visit to the Sheffield Diocesan offices, a trip to a local Doncaster school…

Builders

These guys have been working on our house for the last few weeks. They literally turn up at the crack of dawn and then work all day – mostly hard physical work – often outside in the driving cold winter rain – and always with a cheery attitude. They have a tremendous amount of skill…

Bishop Steven’s Farewell Service

I had the privilege of being asked to document the Bishop of Sheffield’s leaving service at Sheffield Cathedral a couple of weeks ago. Part of the challenge was to create a huge group portrait with the bishop and his wife stood together with the whole cathedral congregation at the end of the service. I thought this…

Gerry’s Bakery Royal Maundy

I have a mini exhibition at the finest bakery in Sheffield – Gerry’s on South Road in Walkley. If you live locally please check out his superb wholesome, tasty bread, warm welcome and a handful of prints showing the queen’s Royal Maundy visit to Sheffield Cathedral last year.
