Brighton Gin Distillery Commercial Photography

Brighton Business Photography - Brighton Gin Distillery

I was very fortunate to be able to spend a wonderful afternoon at the Brighton Gin distillery, taking photos of the who process of making Gin.

I really learnt a lot and loved every minute of it. It’s given me a greater love for Brighton Gin and the lovely people who run the business.

The thing that I was most surprised and impressed by, was the list for the staff’s tea and coffee. I loved the way that everyone was so precise about the length of time the tea bag should stay in the cup for. The exact measurements of coffee and sugar for everyones brew. I’m also sure that I saw a paint sample chart for how milky certain people like their tea. This I really respect.

Photographing the Brighton Victorian Sewers

Something i've been wanting to do since I moved down to Brighton in 1992 was see the victorian sewer network and go on the tour which used to be organised during the Brighton Festival.

Well i'm very pleased to say that I got the opportunity to do so and to photograph the experience for Viva Brighton Magazine. We were given a private tour of this fantastic and fascinating environment and I tried to document it as best I could while shooting with the brief in mind. I learnt so many things about sewage and how the Victorians over engineered things, it was as I said fascinating. 

If you ever get the chance to go on the tour, I highly recommend it, just don't wait 25 years like I did.

 

SILO Brighton chef portrait

Brighton Chef Magazine Portrait

A little while ago I was asked to take a portrait of the head chef Doug, at the zero waste restaurant SILO in Brighton for specialist coffee magazine Longberry. Which is a very cool publication and describes itself as 'An occasional journal of coffee.'

Doug the head chef is quite a character and is doing some really interesting things with food. So if you get a chance, you should really head down there. He was also a man in demand. When I arrived he was just finishing one interview and there was already a film crew standing by to interview him for something else. So I only had five mins with him, but managed to get a couple of portraits that I'm really happy with.

And this is what the finished article looked like in the magazine.
