I have recently enjoyed working with with the superb Thrive Hubs on some contemporary business interior photography in Plymouth. Thrive Hubs offer very high quality office space including hot-desking and short term rental and Ocean Crescent, Plymouth is well worth a visit! Our photoshoot was to show the contemporary spaces, fully styles and with people. We used lots of professional lighting to show the space at its best and create fresh, dynamic, contemporary images.

Union Street, Plymouth Documentary Photography Project

This is a personal documentary photography project of Plymouth's historic but decaying Union Street. A place of former greatness, now neglected and sad but showing glimmers of its former glamour. I am fascinated by the old buildings which survived the bombings of the 2nd World War but have been left to rot. Union Street, Plymouth is currently changing with work being done to the New Palace Theatre throughout 2016.

The street must hold memories of many good nights out for several generations of Plymothians and visiting service people. My favourite building in Plymouth is the old "New Palace Theatre", more recently known as the "Dance Academy". A magnificent building with a million stories!

Abandoned Theatre

I was lucky enough to photograph inside the New Palace Theatre in January 2016, during the early stages of the renovation by the Go palace charity.

The inside of the building evokes memories of when it was the "Dance Academy" nightclub in the 1990s and early 2000s but mostly of an abandoned theatre with many grand features and endless stories.

Plymouth Hoe Foreshore Documentary Photography 

The once magnificent lower foreshore of Plymouth Hoe shows signs of a bygone era of seaside splendour with disused bathing areas, changing rooms and sun decks. I am always fascinated to go exploring below the main promenade of Plymouth Hoe and see what I can find, old and new.

Shapes, colours and textures fight the elements for survival in this unforgiving environment, bathed in ever differing light from sky and sea. The area must be home to many memories from many eras.

This personal photographic project explores the details of this beautiful but often un-noticed area between the tide and the city. I really love this spot as it is but also feel that it could become an amazing world class amphitheatre in the future, but I quite like the Hoe foreshore as it is!

I enjoy photographing artists, their work, their galleries and studios across Devon & Cornwall.

The fourth image in this Portfolio is of the Devon sculptor, Sam White. This was a photo shoot for Sam's project of creating monolithic sculptures inspired by standing stones on Dartmoor. So we photographed Sam with his work by a stone row on Dartmoor at sunrise on the winter solstice!

Healthcare Photography Devon & Cornwall

I am frequently commissioned to do commercial healthcare photography for care, nursing and residential homes in Devon & Cornwall and for other healthcare providers across the South west. This is usually for marketing and promotion purposes of the care home or organisation but often the images are also used internally too. Here is a selection of images that I have created all over Devon & Cornwall.

Lifestyle Healthcare Photography for Care Homes in Devon

I capture bright, happy, genuine, authentic images and work with consideration and respect for your residents. I tend to adopt a "lifestyle photography" approach, including people in all images to bring the image to life and capture a happy, sociable, caring environment. The aim is to show the potential resident and their loved ones the experience of how it feels to be living here with care to represent people with dignity. This is far more engaging, positive and creative than the old traditional style of showing wide shots of empty dining rooms and living areas.
