Beyond - NUA's alumni magazine
21 June 2017
After taking a one year break, Norwich University of the Arts have decided to continue making their alumni magazine, Beyond. I have previously photographed for features in the past issues, so I was very excited to see this project returning. The newest issue of Beyond has grown, not just in size, but also in its content, and so my photographic tasks have also increased. I worked closely with the NUA Alumni Officer, Fuchsia Wilkins, under the art direction of designer Paul Oldman (http://smithltd.co.uk) to create stylised images for the publication. My favourite feature we worked on was the “Tools of the Trade”, which required extensive and elaborate lighting set-ups and concentration on the finer details. The results are so rewarding!

The Gallery Haircutters - L'Oréal Hair Colour Trophy 2017
6th June 2017
This is becoming a tradition, and I couldn’t wish for anything else. Back in February, I have photographed The Gallery Haircutters’ entry to the L'Oréal Hair Colour Trophy 2017. As always, it was a day full of ideas, creativity and a very pleased team! These wonderful people have not only have gone onto the Backstage Finals, they also qualified with the ladies image to the Grand Finals, where they went on to become Regional Winners! Such a huge achievement for them and so pleased I could create the images for the photographic stage of the competition.

Advertising campaign for Dancys in Smith Journal
1 March 2017
In April 2016 I started working with Dancys and have done lots of their imagery ever since. They are a lifestyle brand specialising in men's accessories, who design and develop their products themselves. The images I photographed on our very first photoshoot have been used on their website, on social media, but also in magazines. I've always loved Smith Journal, and to see my image in there is a great feeling.

The Gallery Haircutters - L'Oréal Hair Colour Trophy 2016
4 March 2016
For the second year running, I have collaborated with The Gallery Haircutters Norwich on their L'Oréal Hair Colour Trophy entry. A few months before the competition deadline, we organise a photoshoot where teams from the Salon showcase their hard work on the models' hair. Then we carefully select every image for the Photographic Stage of their entry. This year they have again gone through to the next stage of the competition, the Backstage Live Finals!
