Swimwear shoot  ...view gallery

Experimentation with real divers and swimmers (not models!) on a high street fashion theme with Maru swim costumes kindly supplied by Mailsports. Apologies to any proper advertising and marketing people out there - these poster mockups are just that, mockups! Just wanted to do something a bit different with the images. Thanks to everyone who modelled.

Carlow Rowing Club, Ireland  ...view gallery

A portrait commission by the Carlow Arts Festival in 2011. I was invited over to Ireland to spend a day with the Carlow rowing club, who have been an important part of the town for over a hundred years. I tried to capture the wonderful team spirit in photographs around the club house, in the town centre and out in the lovely countryside. The stone monument is an historic landmark - so we had to be careful sitting on top of it!

'Wear it Pink' 2013 Calendar

Some of GB's swimming, diving, synchro and polo stars bravely bared all in aid of the breast cancer awareness charity. The whole shoot had no budget and was shot in Loughborough University in a very small gym and meeting room! A big thank you to my two helpers Lisa Poole and Molly Wright, the fabulous make-up ladies Cristy Taylor and Leona Seymour, and Craig Palmer for the promo video.

'Synchronised' Dance Project  ...view gallery

Poster and publicity photo shoot for the Balbir Singh Dance Company's production of 'Synchronised' starring the GBR synchro athlete Katie Dawkins and a male dancer. Performed at Ponds Forge just before the London 2012 Olympic Games, Synchronised was a coming together of synchronised swimming and contemporary dance in one performance. It was beautifully directed and performed to a huge audience - many of whom had never seen synchro before.

We were very limited in what we could do for this shoot as on the day we couldn't get into the swimming pool! So we had to improvise with garden sprayers, lots of attitude and moody lighting.


                             
Open Water Triathlon Test Shoot  ...view gallery

A bit of fun in a canoe with the Sheffield Triathlon Club.

Had the strobe on my lap in a canoe, whilst holding the camera in a waterproof bag and trying to paddle all at the same time!

My thanks to Sheffield Triathlon Club for putting up with me.
Scottish Gymnastics  ...view gallery

A selection of images from a two day shoot we did for Scottish Gymnastics in 2012. These are some of their top gymnasts who eat, sleep and train at a dedicated sports facility on the west coast of Scotland (one of the girls has to travel up from Yorkshire every other weekend with her coach to train with the team).

This shoot was extremely difficult to do because it required a complete lighting change every time we moved from one apparatus to another, which ate into the time we had available. It was also a real challenge to capture the gymnasts at precisely the right moment as they did all those amazing things (often in mid air)...

A very talented team of make-up students from the James Watt Academy painted Scottish flags and symbols on their bodies, as we wanted to create something very Scottish ahead of the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games. My thanks to them and to Scottish Gymnastics for letting me show these images.
Millfield School  ...view gallery

Doncaster All Stars Taekwondo Club  ...view gallery

The All Stars is home to the current world champion Sarah Stevenson MBE. I read about Sarah in the papers and was so moved by her incredible story I picked up the phone and organised this shoot.

I went along to their training session in a little school hall somewhere in Doncaster, threw up a black backdrop, sprinkled white powder on the floor and hoped for the best! Luckily the kids were fantastic and we came away with some fun, different and dramatic images. These images are being sold as a fundraiser for the club so please buy them from the club - not me. Very best wishes to Sarah and the club for London 2012 and beyond.
