One of the best jobs…..

I’ve been looking back at some jobs from a few years ago and found this from 2018.  A fantastic job for a client who was working on St Paul’s Cathedral in London. They were removing the bells from one of the bell towers for refurbishment and I was there to photograph this for them.

I love this style of industrial/ editorial photography and would love to do more. I’m going to publish some similar jobs I did in the days and weeks to come so watch this space!

North West Business Insider…..

Really great to see my portraits of Manchester restaurant owner Helen Tse used by my client North West Business Insider for its April issue.

Robyn Hewson’s article on the owner of the Sweet Mandarin is excellent.

Oldham Coliseum Theatre pantomime – great reviews!

It’s been really great to see some fantastic reviews of this year’s panto, Robin Hood,  at Oldham Coliseum Theatre.

I photographed the dress rehearsal for them recently and and it’s great to see some of my pictures used to highlight these amazing reviews.

I would highly recommend going to see the pantomime with all the family…. you can book tickets here…..


The Ring of Red M60….

Thousands of motorcyclists came together today from around the country to take part in the ‘Rings of Red’ campaign for Remembrance Sunday.

This year’s Remembrance ride of respect supported Veteran into Logistics, a non-profit veterans charity.

I spotted these riders from a bridge in Denton, Manchester.

Queen Elizabeth II

queen elizabeth tribute

At such a sad time for our country I’ve felt honoured to record the passing of Queen Elizabeth II for Oldham Council and also to see my 30 year old photograph I took for the Oldham Evening Chronicle in 1992 when the Queen visited Oldham. You can see the article here.

Pictured below is the picture that brought back such great memories.

Also pictured is the Mayor of Oldham Councillor Elaine Garry with a floral tribute and signing the book of condolence at the Civic Centre the day after the Queen’s passing.

Later that evening the Civic Centre was bathed in purple light for the period of mourning in tribute to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
