“… If you read this and seek-out the film, then maybe keep a close eye out for some incredible footage of Jagger on stage during a rainstorm. There is one image - which only last a few secs - of him caught in the lights and the pouring rain - it’s a breathtaking visual and something, to a photographer’s eye, that really is quite magical…”Read More

While Father Christmas plans who’s been naughty and/or nice, I’m keeping very busy, finishing off what's been a terrific year. I've been lucky enough to enjoy a long list of great commissions stretching in to the winter and several reflect an evolving trend for more and more reportage coverage for corporate clients.
In times past, a request from a corporate client to shoot a Christmas function would have filled me with dread. This would mean endless 'grip and grins', leading to very staged results, devoid of any feeling or creativity. But in today's marketplace companies have loosened-up and allow photographers to shoot what they see, recording something really atmospheric and genuine. This appeals to employer and employee - and allows photography to be interesting for internal use and social media.
I believe variation is key to keeping your work fresh and remaining stimulated. And there's absolutely no reason to moan about shooting at Claridge's, Scotts, Battersea Park, Somerset House and Fetcham Park, to name but a few.
So, below is a handful of shots which I think sums-up winter and the festive period...
