I am a geography graduate with a passion for travel and photography. My constant desire to discover new places and cultures and to get off the beaten track has led me to explore large parts of Africa, Asia, South America, Europe and the Middle East. Following a 6 year career in internet marketing, I now run a successful photography business.

Oak Tree Inn Rebrand

Last month I was commissioned by one of my regular clients, Provenance Inns, to take a series of food and interior photographs at The Oak Tree Inn in Helperby, as part of a rebranding exercise. The Yorkshire Steak House & Grill is the newest brand in the Provenance collection, with the menu featuring locally reared beef cooked in the Oak Tree’s new wood-fired oven, Bertha.

Yorkshire Canvases for Office Wall

Harrogate based Catering Consultants, Red Box, have recently moved into offices in Sceptre House on Hornbeam Park. They approached me to see if I could help inject a little Yorkshire personality into their new office space and meeting room. I worked with them to produce five large canvases featuring my photos of Yorkshire. The colour red features heavily throughout their branding, so this was a key factor in their choice of images.

Two of the canvases have been hung in the main office area and the remaining three in an adjourning meeting room, which will soon be available for hire by other businesses when not in use internally.

Brilliant Lighting Portfolio Shoots

For high end lighting design companies, such as Brilliant Lighting in Thirsk, having a strong portfolio of professional images to show potential clients is a crucial element in securing new work. At this end of the market, interior photography is incredibly time consuming and good attention to detail is paramount.

Lighting photography adds further complications. Not only is it vital that the ambience and level of light in a room is faithfully replicated in the photograph, but the photographer must avoid over exposing the light fittings, so that the detail is clearly visible.

During the past two years I have worked closely with the team at Brilliant to photograph a range of properties for their portfolio, from opulent private houses to luxury Yorkshire hotel, Swinton Park. Brilliant have then been able to use my photography both within their website design and also to illustrate case studies.
