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 Brighton Table Tennis Club

I love being asked to go into a space and document or capture what businesses or people do there. I'm free to just observe and take photos of how I see the place and it makes me look at the people and the details with a much more critical photographic eye.

So this time I was asked to take photos of the wonderful Brighton Table Tennis Club in Kemp Town, Brighton for a magazine article. I must have been past this place hundereds of times and not realised what goes on inside. It's just an amazing place and if you have any interest in Table Tennis what so ever, you really shout check it out.

Head Shot Profile Photography - The end result.

Professional Profile Head Shots

It's always nice to see how your work ends up being used and i'm very pleased to share this with you.

So this is the end result of a head shot / profile shoot that I did with the lovely Hayley Lawes (who I met back in 2010 when I shot her wedding). She wanted something simple that could be used in a few different ways, so I suggested a few different set ups and a change of clothes to get the most out of the portrait shoot. And I'm so pleased with how it turned out. I didn't think the website would be as image heavy as it is and I think it looks great.

Hayley is so professional and great at what she does and I love how her coaching site really shows her off as she is really selling herself. 

So if you are looking for a professional coach as a business or an individual, please do check out her website and give her a call to see how she can help you.

George Osbourne PR special visit photography

George Osbourne Visits Sussex Business

They say a week is a long time in politics and this week seems longer than most.

This time last week I was photographing the Chancellor George Osbourne on a visit to a Sussex engineering firm who I sometime shoot for as part of the EU Referendum Remain campaign. And a week later, we are living in a very different world. If I would have described to him last week all that would happen in the next seven days, I doubt he would have believed me. 

A week surely is a long time in politics.

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.
