COMMERCIAL PHOTOGRAPHY | Commissioned Glass Sculpture Photography

A series of images commissioned by the Yorkshire based artist Wendy Tea for promotional use.

Natural light was found to be the best way of lighting the large, delicate glass sculptures so to get the best colours and tones from the glass. A number of studio lighting techniques were used and achieved good results  –  a slow exposure and torchlight created the high contrast images . The client however preferred natural light which created its own challenges as it was found that the light would be just right for a couple of minutes before changing.

The use of natural light also reflected the artwork’s compelling influences coming from the natural world and especially from light through water.

T.A | On exercise with the Territorial Army

The Territorial Army (renamed the Army Reserve in 2014) makes up around a third of the total force of the British Army and has seen active service in Bosnia, Afghanistan and Iraq. Increasingly the British Army will rely on these reservist troops over the coming years.

These pictures were taken on exercise and at a recruiting night in 1996, initially as a project about the role of the TA and how part-time soldiering fitted into the British Army, but the images also helped a promotional campaign for gaining new recruits. The TA project is one project i would like to return to at some point though probably not to the same squadron.

In the years since these images were taken, the Army Reserve has seen a resurgence in its roles within a modern British army. In future, a sizeable number of personnel within the Army will be reservist.

Thanks must go to everyone at the 125th Field Squadron, 75th Royal Engineers in Stoke on Trent for their assistance.

These images were taken on Kodak TMAX 400 and Ilford FP4 film. This gallery is being expanded to include a number of new previously unseen images.

The Speedway Meet | Documentary photography project about the sport of Speedway

Speedway is a sport which has a massive following but is run on budgets far lower than other motorsports. One of the most popular sports of the 1950’s, Speedway was even watched at Wembley Stadium before the sport started to decline in the late 1960’s.

By the 1970’s and 1980’s many teams faced closure as stadium land was sold for redevelopment. Wolverhampton’s team is regarded as one of the most successful teams of the last 20 years; being both successful in the sport and financially secure in an era when many teams face closure.

The images were taken at a Wolverhampton vs Poole meeting. These images were taken using a Nikon F3HP fitted with an MD4 motordrive on Kodak TMAX 400 and Ilford HP5 film.

The photographs of the speedway bikes capturing the energy of a speedway start, bikes charging away from the line, are some of my best selling images.
