Norwich Gentleman Photographer – Wedding – Commercial – Lifestyle – Portrait » When you want your photographer to treat you with respect, you need the Gentleman Photograher

They say a policeman is never off duty, well they also might say that about photographers!  I was up in Yorkshire at the weekend and whist relaxing in the restaurant of Brighouse Holiday Inn I spotted the blue lights flashing way down on the main road.  Not one to miss the chance to capture life’s events as they happens,  I managed to get down there in time with my trusty camera and snapped a few images from the commotion.  It appears two vehicles were involved in a road accident, thankfully no one was hurt.

I sent the images off to the local papers and it was picked up by the Brighouse EchoThe Telegraph and Argus and the Halifax Courier 

Have you got a new story you need to cover?  Why not give me a call to cover it for you!?

It was lovely to go back to my old BNI Chapter, BNI Victory Norwich (at the time it was called BNI Morning Glory), and see how everyone was getting on.  To my surprise only one member was left, mind you, it was getting on for 8 years ago when I left.

Whilst there I did take a few photos of the meeting, it was great to see the business being passed around the room, exactly ask you would expect a good referral organisation to work.

I got to meet lots of nice people there, thanks for the invite Beks Huston, and lovely to see Roger Pemberton, and Gemma Worwood, to name but a few.

Hope to see you all again soon.

Gentleman Photographer published in BioEnergy International, December 2015

A couple of months ago I was asked to provide the photographic coverage of the Future Biogas and Triogen’s first UK installation of a Triogen ORC power unit at Oak Grove Renewables biogas site in Norfolk.  To add weight to the opening event it was officiated by the deputy Dutch ambassador to the UK, Margriet Leemhuis.

During the event I met the editor in chief, Alan Sherrard, of BioEnergy International, the Swedish BioEnergy Publication, who later went on to purchase one of my images for the events coverage.

Today I was pleasantly surprised to find my image was used across two pages of their international magazine. A proud moment as, as far as I’m aware, it’s the first of many such exposures of my work.

The full Publication can be read here: Bioenergy International 7-2015, 83, Released December 2015

Many thanks to all concerned, I am rather chuffed to say the least!

I have a lot of time for Nicole Rivett.  We met at The Wedding Business Club a couple of years ago and have been good friends since.  When she said the Flower Kiosk was going to be relaunch I was really pleased to be asked to photograph the opening.  To add weight to the opening it took place on the 5th December, which was also Small Business Saturday, and Chloe Smith had the honour of opening it.

It was good to meet Chloe Smith, what a nice lady (I take people as I find them, not the colour of their politics!).  She opened it with real ease, as you expect.

There was also a presence from BNI, and Buy Local Norfolk, amongst a number of fellow small business owners.  I have to also mention Chris & Sarah Greenfield, of Bright Yellow Marketing, who were supporting Nicole’s Flowers by Nicole and also the Social Media eyes for the day… Hence the photograph of me, thank you Chris!!

Out of the blue I received an email asking me to quote and won the assignment to photograph the opening of Future Biogas and Triogen’s first ORC power plant in the UK.

The fact that I had studied Environmental Science at the UEA a few years ago didn’t just please me, I felt genuinely excited as it’s a subject close to my heart.

Out of interest the ORC technology converts waste heat into electrical energy.

The Oak Grove site operates a 2 megawatt electricity producing Anaerobic Digestion (AD) plant in Scottow, Norfolk. Anaerobic digestion is the simple, natural breakdown of organic matter into biogas (carbon dioxide and methane) and organic fertilizer called digestate. It is a similar process to that which takes place in the stomach of a cow. Applying Triogen´s ORC technology to the plant will increase the electricity output of the plant by up to 10% without additional input material. The ORC power plant converts the – otherwise unused- heat from the engine into electricity through technology also used in larger power plants. (from Triogen’s Press release)

Above are a few images from the day, with appearances from Philipp Lukas, CEO of Future Biogas, Henning von Barsewisch, Triogen’s CEO, Charlotte Morton ,CEO of the Anaerobic Digestion & Bioresources Association (ADBA) and with special guest, deputy Dutch ambassador to the UK, Margriet Leemhuis.

Future Biogas is a leading UK-based biogas plant developer and operator and Triogen is a leading provider of ORC [Organic Rankine Cycle] power plants.

Almost every wedding is special, but some weddings shine, not just because of the weather, but because the people are just that little bit extra special!

I met Amy & Jamie through an old business club friend of mine, Stuart (the honey man!)  Amy is Stuart’s daughter, who I didn’t realise I’d known probably 10 years ago when she was a teenager and when I used to look after her Dad’s business’s IT systems.   When we got around to discussing the wedding, over a pint at the Fat Cat, we just seemed to hit it off.  They talked about getting a wedding organised in a really short space of time and wanted to dedicate some proper time in to create some really special photos of their day.

They had organised the wedding to take place at Saint Margaret’s Church, Old Catton in Norwich, their couples photographs would be taken in woodland 10 minutes ‘up the road’ out of the City, and finally to return to a marquee in their back garden, leaving only a metre or so to squeeze past.  Its was just fab!

What transpired was a set of images that really do make me emotional when I look at them.  I guess I’m connected due to the long term friendship with Amy’s’ Dad, but there is just something special.  The images above are a small selection of the ones I liked most, more to do with emotions rather than artistic merit.

Later in the year I was lucky enough to have some of Amy & Jamie’s photos picked to be included in Dalia Courridge’s annual bridal magazine, Norfolk Brides, not just that, one of the photos ended up as the front cover!  How chuffed we all were!

A special day, with a lovely family, thank you for letting me be there!
