Kings Lynn Photographer

Every now and then I get to photograph someone, or something, a little out of the ordinary.  If you have 5 minutes to spare, have a read ...

First England and now me!

After England reached the World Cup semi final in the summer it was my turn to almost get my hands on the trophy! However, ex-Tottenham Hotspur and Argentina legend Ossie Ardilies was allowed to hold it as I photographed hundreds of excited football fans at a recent autograph signing event.

I am now an International Photographer!

As a specialist in large group photography, I am regularly booked for shoots up and down the country, but I was surprised when the request "would you come to Switzerland?" was emailed to me. Anyway here is a shot of my staging, with the Alps in the background!

Ed Sheerin

When internationally renowned singer Ed Sheeran was awarded an honourary degree at University Campus Suffolk I was commissioned to take the official portraits to be displayed in the university. Somewhat ironic that his song "Photograph" led to him being in front of my camera!

Snapping the Royals

One of the advantages of living in a beautiful part of Norfolk is that I am often called upon to photograph the Royal Family in and around Kings Lynn. This image of Prince William talking to wellwishers on the Sandringham estate was used by a few news agencies in the USA.

Heading in the One Direction

Recently I photographed Gemma Styles as she recieved her degree after 3 years at University in Yorkshire.  After the ceremony she wanted some photos taken with her younger brother Harry. Harry doesnt plan on going to university himself, apparantly he is a singer in a popular boy band.

In The Press Again

Photo Professional magazine have just published a third feature about me and my work. This time the feature covers a typical weekend where I covered four completely different events, namely a school prom, with a junior football tournament the next day followed by a Photobooth booking and then finally photographing a marathon on the Sunday. Its a good read even if I say so myself!

By Royal Appointment

Recently I was commissioned by the Army to shoot a group photo where the guest of honour was none other than The Queen. I was allowed to take just four frames, and still managed the rookie mistake of having a pole growing out of someones head! At least it was a pole flying the Royal Standard!

Left on the Cutting Room Floor!

Channel 4 recently came to film one of the contestants intros for the popular series Come Dine With Me in my studio.  The contestant worked in waste management and the filming showed her transforming from her work clothes into a glamorous lady with her hard hat and hi viz jacket ending up in the bin. Although I was also filmed, that footage was also binned!!

On the Other Side of the Camera

A photographer friend of mine regularly shoots a high imaginative set of triptychs (its Greek for three-fold) and I asked him to shoot a set for me. Being your typical photographer I much prefer being behind the camera, but I'm very pleased with the result! Please have a look at Mark's website:   Bang|Photo

Industry Recogntion!!

I am very proud to announce that I have been awarded an Associateship Qualification by the British Institute of Professional Photography.  Only about 10% of photographers ever achieve this standard and I am the first ever event photographer to do so. Which officially makes me the best event photographer in the country!!

Norwich City FC Academy Photos

Premier League football club Norwich City recently had a group photograph taken of all their academy teams and I was asked to photograph the occasion on my staging. The boys range from 8 years of age up to 16 and the chances are that somewhere in this photo are a few household names of the future.

A Second Article in Photo Professional Magazine

For the second time in recent months, I have been featured in Photo Professional magazine. This latest issue contains a full page write-up about my school prom photography and university graduation ball service.

The Lord Mayors Show

The annual Lord Mayors Show in London is a colourful occasion that is guaranteed to bring out both professional and amateur photographers, but my role on the day was to take the the official group photos for the Army before the event got underway.

I am Premier League!

Tottenham Hotspur FC recently opened up their stadium at White Hart Lane to just under 200 lucky kids to take part in a football tournament on the same pitch as their heroes play.  Even though I regularly photograph football, both junior and professional, it was still an honour for to be chosen as the official photographer for the event.

Working with the BBC for Children in Need

November saw the annual BBC Children in Need appeal take place and I was commissioned to attend a special performance of The Jersey Boys in London's West End and photograph members of the audience with the cast and Pudsey Bear.  An absolutely phenomenal £42,000 was raised on the on the night and I like to think that my photographs contributed in no small part towards that figure!!!

Competition Win

Recently the SWPP (the largest photography organisation in the UK) ran an online competition to find the best sporting event photograph taken during the year. I entered two images and was delighted to not only win, but to come second as well. Next time I will enter three images!

Magazine Feature

I was recently featured in Photo Pro Magazine as one of the very best photographers who offered onsite printing at a variety of different events.
