Recent advertising photography shoot for BBH Shanghai. We were tasked with capturing images of Neymar for huguley popular Chinese beer brand Harbin. The portrait images will be used across China in a range of forms from social to point of sale. As ever a very tight schedule (and an injured ankle) called for some lateral thinking. We shot a number of excursions from traditional sports portraits to more lifestyle photography. Below is are some of the final images, one of the final pieces of artwork, a small behind the scenes time-lapse and some behind the scenes images.
A recent studio lifestyle shoot for Benefit Cosmetics as part of their new product launch on their Hoola range. We handled all aspects of the shoot production in-house. Working with some of the UK’s biggest influencers we designed a two set shoot plan, allowing us to quickly jump from our tropical jungle setup to a simpler, cleaner plain pink background. Below are some of the final images, some behind the scene images from the shoot day as well as our original scamp for the concept. The images have been rolled out across a number of assets including in-store.
A recent inverview with Being Freelance’. Covering how I ended up getting into photography and how a few lucky breaks along the way helped. I talk about how I ended working at a lifestyle photographer, advertising photographer and commercial photographer has been a real challenge. Have a listen HERE "I think my first ever freelance gig was going to a little, tiny little pub, in Sheffield, to take some pictures of this band that I'd never heard of. I turned up and the pub was totally packed; I'd never seen anything like that in Sheffield before. And it turned out to be The Arctic Monkeys"
We recently made some enhancements to our blog, moving towards a more visual structure. Have a browse...there are some bits that were previously buried, hopefully it will just make it all a bit easier to walk around. Still a few glitches I’m sure; more past content will be going up over the coming weeks. There is work across the areas I work in as a lifestyle photographer, advertising photographer and portrait photographer.

Very excited to announce that I have signed a global representation deal with Hancock & Handsome, the newly launched photographic sister agency of the highly respected illustration house Handsome Frank.
For existing customers this will not result in any change - we will continue to shoot and produce in-house. It does however mean I will have the drive of some very experienced agents knocking on doors in places we would otherwise not be able to reach; not only in London but worldwide.
James Hancock, Jon Cockley and Tom Robinson will run the agency, drawing on their extensive experience in the creative fields.
It's a great honour to be asked on board alongside a set of amazing photographers. You can check out their wonderful illustrators at www.handsomefrank.com and see the photographic agencies sparkly new site at www.hancockandhandsome.com

A recent shoot for Save The Children. Below is an early stage scamp of the concept and then the end execution below that. We handled all aspects of prop styling and shoot logistics in-house and are very happy with the end result. A fun image that will attract people to STC’s latest fundraising campaign.
Delighted to announce that three of my images have been selected for the highly prestigious AOP Awards 2016. Frankie Dettori and my nordic rower in the Commissioned Editorial category, whilst my shot for Cancer Research UK is given the nod in the Commissioned Design category. Having three images selected is rare and a huge honour. We look forward to the Awards exhibition later in October at The Old Truman Brewery, Shoreditch, London.
We shot a number of leading female athletes for Fabulous, in the run up to the Olympics. Smoke was used to add some GB drama. All post-production was handled in-house, shooting the subject and smoke separately for obvious health and safety reasons. Below is one of the finished images of Becky Downie, as well as a behind the scenes of the smoke shoot.
This shoot, a commission for Runner's World, showcased the 8 most improved amateur runners in the UK. We shot at White Rabbit Studio and managed the shoot from subject liaison to post production. The pictures were taken with a shallow depth of field to really draw the viewer in; all wearing Asics. Behind the scenes video from the shoot below.
A recent interview for Pro Lighting Magazine, talking about the challenges faced when lighting outdoors on a shoot with Frankie Dettori.
‘Inspiration and experience play a large part in every capture. It is about using your knowledge and skill as a photographer to capture images in a very short time frame’.
‘It is a case of having to take quality photos with a minimum of fuss.’
Latest Sport uncovered series as well as some behind the scenes images. Billy said: “I was a gymnast until I was about eight years old, but I was terrible so I moved into acrobatics as the top for a men’s four. So I learned the art of body control and aerial awareness from a young age – both are essential in slopestyle. You need to be a bit fearless as well. It’s about calculating risks and knowing what you are able to do. It’s no good saying you’ll just f**king go for if you’re not capable – you’re just going to hurt yourself.
