    Chance to Shine is a cricket-based charity getting young people, from areas that aren’t necessarily associated with cricket, into the game by taking current professionals and putting them in schools and getting kids to have a bit of a play and sort of encourage the street cricket that goes on…

  2. Phil Mustard - Sporting Headshots

    This photo was taken a good couple of years ago – it popped up in one of my one of my memories recently and it was it was a great shoot to be part of. I managed to play golf with the man, the myth, the legend, Mr Phil Mustard,…

  3. Dysart - Location Shoot

    It may have been the windiest day I’ve ever been to in Consett, and that’s saying something! If you’ve been Consett before, you know it’s windy a lot of the time - and often snowing!  I’m friends with lots of people in Consett and I tell them exactly the same…

  4. Photography to Personal Training - Website Shoot

    Around five years ago, I got an email from a student, Sean, from my old school, Prudhoe High School, who was desperate to get into photography and wanted some help to get started on the journey and I said, “Let’s have a cuppa!” We went to the Caffé Ginevra, when…

  5. Boubacar Malick Dia - Sports Photography

    I had the pleasure of shooting Boubacar Malick Dia - an under 17s Senegal international goalkeeper. He’s incredibly tall, I mean everybody’s tall compared to me, so the first time I met him, it was like, ‘Hello, I’m so short!’ But he’s a really nice kid and I got a…

  6. Sam Gowland - Fitness Superstore

    It was great being contacted by a national chain such as Fitness Superstore to do some shoots here in the North East. Granted a little bit further south than my normal… when I say North East, I mean kind of Newcastle, Northumberland, because I’m up that way, but this was…

  7. Screaton Undersea - Manufacturing Shoot

    I’ve said a few times on these posts that I have a fascination with peeking behind the curtain. That sounds like a creepy photographer thing, I don’t mean it that way, I mean it from a business and life perspective, in the sense that there’s that many things that go…

  8. Lost Voice Guy Shoot

    We all know it’s great to see local people on the TV and I do always get a buzz about being able to shoot people that I’ve come across on TV and that sort of stuff and this is a kind of a combination of both. I got contacted by…

  11. Michael Offord’s Opticians - Location and Headshots

  12. Opia - Team event at Wylam Brewery

    [image-grid: fingerprint-] This year I’ve had the pleasure of working with some really great global companies that have all come together for their showcase events and team briefings that allow the staff to get messages from the higher managers, to really bring everybody together, to make sure that everybody’s on…

  17. The Umbrella Project - at The Hub, Consett

    As you know, I talk a lot about Celebrate Difference and the impact that it’s made on my life. So when they started to develop a project with the ADHD Foundation and bring in neurodivergence to a wider audience, being able to promote it in a slightly different way, I…

  18. Lara Mellor - Duality Project

    You will have seen some bits on the website and on socials regarding my duality project and this is a project that brings together the two sides of any business owner with a business focus and also their passion and sometimes they are paired close together where people are doing…

  19. Seeing the Northern Lights - Tromsø, Norway

    I mention a lot about time passing and us ADHD’ers do struggle with time passing, but it is quite a while now since I was up in the Arctic Circle for the first time…  I’ve been to the Arctic Circle twice and they were just fantastic experiences both times. First…

  20. Project Groundwater - Promotional images

    Being back in the North East for 10 years now, I still remember my time away and being able to call the North East home means a lot and to be back living in it is fantastic, so when a conglomeration of local agencies come together and ask me to…

  21. Networking

    I have talked a number of times about making sure that you get out what you put into your networking. Networking is one of those things that if you commit the time to it and put the effort outside of the meetings where you see people, will pay dividends. I…

  22. Prudhoe Business Magazine

    This last week was very nostalgic and an eye-opening shoot with Alan Sawyers from AS Design based in Prudhoe. I was born and raised in Prudhoe and have spent 15 years away and I have gone back to nearly nearly Prudhoe. My Dad still lives there and so I am…

  23. New kit

    Is it time for a new camera? I have always been of the approach that any new equipment has to be a justifiable expense. I don’t particularly like spending money unless these are tangible outputs on the back of it. I have been more so this year and I think…

  24. BEELINE - George Bromley’s epic challenge

    Anybody that’s been following me for a while knows that I’ve spent a lot of time recently being fascinated by the mindset of individuals that take on that challenge.  We all have that thing that floats around at the back of our heads, that goes, ‘Oh, I’d like to do…

  25. Everglow Media- Sisk Shoot

    I was on the road to York and Leeds a couple of weeks ago, working for a big infrastructure company, doing some massive works to the rail network and surrounding local infrastructure. The reason I was down there was actually golf and I love tying things back to golf, as…
