I have recently been commissioned to get lots of key landmark images from around the country, I know a little different from what i have been doing recently with Fashion and Music sometimes the two combined.
I have only been to a few locations at the moment due to poor weather conditions and thankfully there isn;t a pressing deadline on this job… (theres a first for everything)
There is one building however I have always really loved in Birmingham and that is The Mailbox… apart from it’s cool name it really is a stunning building as far as buildings are concerned. The Mailbox also has a vast amount of eateries situated at the back on the canal.
The region’s biggest fashion, beauty and shopping event, Style Birmingham Live AW13, returned on Saturday 28 September for the sixth year with hosts Emma Willis, Rylan Clark, celebrity stylist Brix Smith-Start and special catwalk guest & Britain & Ireland’s Next Top Model Winner Lauren Lambert.
More than 3,000 ticket holders visited the Town Hall to see the award winning catwalk show featuring the latest Autumn Winter collections from across the city’s stores and centres, which this year included an incredible snow filled finale scene!
Catwalk visitors were also treated to a printed Lookbook containing detailed images of the 125 looks featured in the nine stunning scenes within the show and where to buy them in Birmingham city centre
Yet another amazing pop festival, this one was staged in Birmingham city centre. The two day event was headlined by Jessie J and the american heart throb NE-YO.
I was contracted by event organisers to capture the entire event and boy was it a busy one.
Here are just a few images from an amazing weekend.
It’s always great working on fashion shoots but even better when you put your models in front of 60K people! Well that’s what we did for this year Aston Villa Catalogue shoot. Armed with my team of models and assistance we roamed around Villa Park grabbing images of our models with proper atmosphere behind us.
The second phase of the photo shoot wasn’t in 40K people but it as still pretty cool. Again armed with my assistance we made our way to Aston Villa’s training ground, ‘Bodymore Heath’ just outside of Sutton Coldfield to shoot with a variety of players during their training.
Take a look at some of my favourite images. If your a Aston Villa fan and would like a copy of the 2013 catalogue make sure you register your details for one
What a line up we had at this years Chester Rocks festival which took place in the grounds of Chester Racecourse. It was great to be working for the organisers for this event as their official photographer.
The two day event was a sell out and you can see why with the acts performing.
