I had the opportunity to photograph the rather beautiful Mercedes SLR McLaren at William Loughran, esteemed supplier of performance and luxury cars.
Meet Damien McGlade, photographer and a long time friend. Although he did scare the hell out of me when I first met him. But that’s another story.
Mosney Mill is a company owned by artist, Emma Sutton. Her hand painted designs are the epitome of country living.

The Samlesbury Hotel, just outside Preston, has some interesting locations for wedding photography, if you go looking for them.
This is Emily and Richard, who married at Gibbon Bridge in August. A beautiful venue with some stunning opportunities for wonderful bridal portraits.

This particular image was part of a bridal brochure shoot for the Marriott hotel group. They had a healthy number of wedding bookings, but there seemed an obvious lack of engagement with the Asian community. A review of their wedding marketing image quickly revealed why. There were no Asian bridal imagery displayed anywhere. It’s difficult to engage a target customer if they cannot see an established relationship with similar clients.
As products go, these signs had their own set of challenges. The main thing I wanted to preserve, was the three dimensional nature and depth of the acrylic. The numbering was quite pronounced within the plastic, and I wanted to make sure that was obvious to the viewer. What I didn’t want, was any glare or flaring caused by the highly polished perspex.
