New Bishop of Sheffield Announced

I had the privilege of documenting the official announcement of the new Bishop of Sheffield today. The day began at the inspiring Archer Project with the a press conference, following the official announcement on the Downing Street website. 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.

Matchday

Going to my first football match, aged seven (at Meadow Lane) I couldn’t believe the experience. On approaching the stadium the sound of thousands of people singing inside took my breath away. And the pace of the game, the passion, the anger, the joy, the highs, the lows – it opened a new world for me.…

1554 Café

1554 Café inside Sheffield Cathedral is celebrating it’s first birthday next month. I had the pleasure of taking some photos on behalf of You Say Social last week. I was concentrating on taking the photos but the coffee and food looked really good and the staff were friendly. All set within the peace and tranquility…

Racing

At a recent portfolio review one of the reviewers commented that a high percentage of my personal work seems to focus on people under pressure. I’d never made this link before but I think I am attracted to photograph people who are pushing themselves. That and people living life as an adventure maybe. Thanks to…

Black and White Photography Magazine

A lovely surprise and honour to see the Sea Kings documentary project published in March’s Black and White Photography Magazine. There is something about seeing photographs off the screen and in real print… maybe a reminder of dark room days – I am just old enough to know a bit about that era! More documentary…

Sea Kings

I had the great privilege of photographing the Royal Navy Sea King helicopters a couple of weeks ago. After nearly 50 years in service they are being retired for a private company to take over. Both the Royal Navy and RAF have run the Sea King Search and Rescue operation across the UK with great…

City of Sheffield Rowing

I was invited to capture City of Sheffield Rowing Club‘s latest Learn to Row course earlier this month. It was a beautiful sultry morning down at Damflask with the early morning mist still floating in the trees – a breath of fresh air to get away into the countryside. Get in touch on the link…
