I was recently commissioned by Bellway Homes to photograph one of their newly launched show homes at a launch day event.
A couple of weeks ago I headed up to Gloucester for a quick job for Bellway Homes. They had donated some money to a local school which was put towards an outdoor learning/nature area.

Here is a short selection of images from the shoot.

From a recent commission for Redrow Homes at their current site in Lisvane, Cardiff.
I was recently commissioned to take some photographs at the Cardiff branch of ChipsAway. The images are for use in the Franchise Brands end of year report.
I was in Cardiff this morning to photograph some business headshots when I was asked if I minded taking a quick portrait of this guy. Its not my usual sort of thing but I quite like it!
I don’t think i want to work with dogs all the time though, I think I just got lucky that he looked down the lens, he only did it once!
A couple of images from a recent shoot for Aareon at their office in Swansea.
The typical welsh winter weather coming in to play meant we were forced to use a rather beige office as the location. Fortunately we were able to cover a wall with some posters to achieve the colourful background the client was looking for.

Michael Jones Q.C for the FDA
In the run up to Christmas I was commissioned to take a portrait of Michael Jones Q.C for the FDA. The brief was some relaxed environmental portraits along with an establishing shot of the Welsh Assembly Senedd building in Cardiff bay.
I've had a couple of fun shoots recently for Waitrose Weekend Magazine. The first being sand yachter, Andrew Parr down on Pembrey sands. This was a really windy day down on the beach, my light stands were barely able to stand even weighed down!
The second shoot was deep in rural Wales with Scything Instructor, Phil Batten. My take away from this shoot was the horsefly bite which I suffered 30 seconds into begining the shoot which then caused my arm to swell twice its normal size. I wont be forgetting that one in a hurry!
A couple of images from a recent commercial photography shoot for AirBnB in Langland, Swansea.
Early on in the summer I was commissioned to photograph the staff from a branch of the Perfume Shop for their internal staff magazine. Here are some images from the shoot.

I recently had the pleasure in travelling down to West Wales to photograph the talented illustrator Millie Marotta and her studio for Artists & Illustrators magazine.
The feature is in the current issue of the magazine and is out now.

Whenever I can I try and shoot something just for myself when I'm working. Whether thats an unusual scene or some nice light like the photo below.
Now some say you should always shoot for yourself, and while I agree to an extent, I also think there wouldn't have been a place for an image like this on the job I was commissioned for...interested to know what others think?
I shot these portraits of Gareth Jenkins of FGS Tool for the German economic magazine Wirtschafts Woche back in June but I've been a little slow (a bit?!) on updating this blog.....
A couple of recent commissions have just been published which I can now share with you.
I was asked by the FT to head up to Mid Wales to photograph William Watkins, the founder of Radnor Hills to go along with a recent interview for the Money FT section. The drive up was pretty awful with heavy rain that didn't let up for the whole day, scuppering my plans for a portrait out on the farm....
I was also really happy to shoot for the recently launched journal for trading standards, TS Review. Always nice to have images over a number of pages and I'm pretty happy with the ones chosen for the article.
Here are the tearsheets and also a few out takes from the shoots.
