I was commissioned by Alexandra O'Dea to shoot some marketing photography for Birmingham Clinical Massage, her new treatment premises in the Jewellery Quarter. The long days and heavy kit involved in the photography profession, not to mention the hours sitting at the desk, while editing, can sometimes take it's toll. I've been working [...]

I've been spending a lot of time with dogs recently. M'i old pal Charlie Smith, runs a canine care business www.charliescaninecare.co.uk which includes dog walking, behavior, day care and a house sitting service, so owners don't have to leave their dogs at a kennel when they are away from home. Not really having much experience [...]
After shooting images for Abi Borg's forthcoming look book, she invited me to her studio to capture some press shots and PR photography that she can send out to press, when her work is featured in interested publications. She looks happy in her work space and we had a giggle along the way. [...]
It was a pleasure shooting for the Night Owl back in July. It's always nice to see your work in context and on a clients website. See it here - www.nightowlbirmingham.com
We had Rude Mod twins, Del and Bes in the studio last week. Ian, interested in mod culture, met them at a 'do' in Brum and asked to take their portrait. We spoke of rude boys growing up in Birmingham in the 70's - scooters, fashion music and occasional rivalry with other sub cultures. And [...]
Above is a photographic portrait we produced for our 'Brum Creatives' portrait project that we exhibited in 2014, featured as the front cover of the latest edition of 'My Moseley & Kings Heath' magazine. The purpose of the project was to showcase the story of talented Birmingham Creatives through considered art direction, photography & styling. Steve Ajao has been amazing Brummie music lovers for over 30 years, performing with Steve Ajao's Blues Giants, as well as performing solo. Steve is accomplished both on guitar - electric, acoustic & dobro, and saxophone - tenor, alto & soprano. His talents don't stop at music and he is also an accomplished artist, we had the privilege of viewing some of his work at his home where we shot this portrait. Styling was provided by Atoo menswear, a long established and well loved independent menswear boutique in Birmingham that has sadly recently closed its doors. The relaxed boxy fit 'Creep' painters coat in a natural coloured textured jacquard cotton seemed the perfect choice for Steve, who maintains a mild mannered sunny demeanor despite being considered as a local legend. Steve's own garden porch seemed the perfect setting to capture the influences of the American deep south, the home of blues and a big influence on Steve's musical journey. Thanks to Steve for making us feel right at home, thanks to Atoo for the clothing and to the Custard Factory's Whatnot & Doodah for the hand painted porch rocking chair. Also thanks to My Moseley & Kings Heath for the front cover.
