B'HAM STREET PHOTOGRAPHY (APR-JUN)

B'HAM STREET PHOTOGRAPHY (APR-JUN)

This blog post marks 2 whole years since I started doing these quarterly releases. What I have noticed a lot about photography over time is that it never ceases to surprise me. The last 3 months I have been photographing the streets of Birmingham as I normally do, trying to capture these moments in between my freelance jobs and during my free time.

After an overwhelming start to the year that has been full of bittersweet moments & changes to my life, I am pleased to show another collection of images taken on the streets of Birmingham.

Apple Photo Walk - 'Ordinary Life'

Apple Photo Walk - 'Ordinary Life'

At the start of 2017 I was approached by the Apple team in Birmingham following their recent move into the incredible '128 New Street' building on Corporation Street. The idea was to host a 'Photo Walk' focussed on 'Ordinary Life' which would allow participants to explore techniques for making the ordinary look extraordinary on the streets of Birmingham.

Here's a selection of images from when I shot with Lusy Logan & Ryan Davies-Hall back in July. This shoot was shot on the same day as our 'Cosy Club' Photoshoot & took place on top of Snow Hill car park in Birmingham.

Back in August of this year, myself and Ana Maria decided it would be great to shoot some studio portraits when we both had a few hours free. We made plans for a 2 hour shoot and I told her to bring a good range of clothes that we could create a few styles from. See the images that we got from this great shoot.

The Wedding of Katie & Chris

The Wedding of Katie & Chris

In early September of 2016 I was blessed with the opportunity to photograph Katie & Chris’s wedding in Lichfield. I have known Chris for a couple of years and it was fantastic feeling being asked to capture his and Katie’s special day.

Here are 50 photos taken on the streets of Birmingham during the months of July, August & September of 2016. After changing a large part of my working life and going freelance, I didn’t know whether I would be taking as many photos of Birmingham anymore. It appears I have surprised even myself and actively continued to photograph the streets of Birmingham, albeit differently to when I was commuting through the city.

Birmingham Children's Hospital Exhibition

In September 2016 I was able to achieve a milestone I only dreamt of since picking up a camera. I was given the amazing opportunity to exhibit my photography for the first time in my life after working closely with Birmingham Children's Hospital on their 'Stars of Steelhouse Lane' project.

Lauren Kate Photoshoot

On the 3rd August myself and Lauren Kate Preston teamed up to do a test photoshoot. Lauren was a true pro that has a great 'look' which she can switch on in-between the fun and laughs. We only had one hour to shoot, but that didn't phase us.
