Aside from some commercial shoots recently, I have just finished shoots for Manchester Football team front Cover and more recently a location shoot for my Lingerie and swim wear client.
We found an amazing location to shoot this and it just shows you don't have to spend a fortune to get the results.
Michael, my Client, is a joy to work with as he is a man who knows from the very start exactly what he wants ! I always work with the same team of people on this job year in year out, so the shoot always runs like clockwork and the end result is achieved with fun in the process.

The location was a little shabby in places but overall, gave us the look we were after.
Power was a bit of an issue ! as the majority of plug sockets looked as if they should be on the Antique...
I recently had the pleasure of shooting the new Kooga brochure and Ads in early October. It has just been printed and delivered to the Client.
I started the shoot by going on a bit of a road trip round the North of England and then round North Wales looking for suitable Rugby Clubs that demonstrated to us "Grass roots" Rugby. We wanted a Club with a great atmosphere, within a goood place in the local community.
I have to say, having travelled round Wales, this was very hard decision to make, as there are so many "great" clubs in North Wales. I guess we eneded up going for a club not too polished...
