Tricky job? No problem.

Sometimes my job can be quite difficult, here's a good example. I was working at General Electric Aviation last week and because of the nature of their business, almost everything was classified and of course couldn't be photographed. But luckily I've been doing this long enough to not give up and leave with just a mugshot. I spotted this glass display in the reception area and with a few off camera flashes I managed to make it look interesting and high tech, just what the client was looking for.

Hartpury College

Hartpury College is one of the UK’s leading land-based and sports colleges and I have been lucky enough to be asked to help them produce their marketing material. The campus covers over 360 hectares and is located near to both Gloucester and Cheltenham. Today it has more than 1300 students working towards foundation degrees, honours degrees and postgraduate qualifications in equine, sport and animal and land studies. Hartpury is one of the world’s largest equine education facilities and regularly wins national university titles in rugby and football.

Rugby World Cup 2015 Gloucester

2015 is a big year for Gloucestershire as the city of Gloucester will be hosting the Rugby World Cup. I was asked to do a publicity shot of the main man charged with arranging it, former Gloucester rugby captain, Adam Balding.  Adam is Gloucester's co-ordinator for all the preparations, so as you can imagine a very busy man indeed. Luckily he spared me the time and helped carry my kit to the top of Gloucester Cathedral for this shot.

Gloucester Docks Long Exposure

I've recently been working on a project about living and working in Gloucestershire. My client has a list of the counties features that need photographing, the assignment is taking me all over the county and it's reminding me how lucky I am to live here. A couple of nights ago I popped over to Gloucester Docks and took this 30 second exposure picture. Because it was very windy the water was moving and this makes the water appear smooth. By using the self timer and a tripod lashed to a lamp post I could get the rest of the picture sharp despite the very long exposure.

I was delighted to be asked by Gloucestershire County Council to help them out with some pictures to promote the launch of their Christmas Drink Driving Campaign. The campaign, Eat, Think, Be Merry, kicks off as an average of three drivers a day continue to be caught under the influence of alcohol while driving in the county

BBC Reporter, Steve Knibbs co hosted the event and was brilliant, I have worked with Steve many times when I was working on the Western Daily Press and I knew he likes to chat, but I had no idea he had such a talent for public speaking.
